Ernalsulva´s Gifts

Recommended Posts

Has anyone made somekind of RQG conversions on the magical gifts given by Ernalsulva? These are The Red Hands of Hofstaring, Hawthorn Bough and Indrodar´s Sword "Wrath".

Wrath has the permanent Rune spell Release Undead active on it: normally 2 rune points. when hit points reach 0 spirit released, special, location destroyed, crit, auto release. (see tales19). Geas: Never ignore the call for aid against undead.

I'd give it a bladesharp 4 matrix as well

Unwieldable by any but a humakti.

Other than that it's a two-handed enchanted iron sword. Needs attuning.

The hands are not magic items, they need returning.

The Hawthorn Bough could have a permanent 2pt mobile sanctify when in the Underworld only.

4pt spirit block matrix

16mp storage to power the spirit block 16mps

I'd also give the Hawthorn Bough a connection to the Fertility rune - i.e. always adds +20% when the bearer invokes that Rune (e.g. Inspiration or casting Rune spell), or +30% when in the Underworld or during Darkseason.

However, if the bearer attempts to use the Death rune or invokes a Hatred, then the bough withers/shatters.

I did think of suggesting that with Wrath and the Hawthorn Bough (Death and Fertility respectively), but thought that kind of rune bonus too powerful. I don't think we've seen an example of this in the rules yet. Perhaps @Jeff might comment on this kind of object bonus.

The bonus may well need fiddling with, but this type of augment (or shift) to a Rune (or Passion) is definitely something I want in my Glorantha (though likely will have some counter/deleterious effect, or be easy to 'break').

Oh, I'd make them a magic item, after all Hofstaring, was a hero. It also gives the PCs some cause to rethink whether they even should return the Hands.
