We just started a Torchbearer run, likely playing till everyone reaches level five.
I’m think ahead a bit, about a magic item. I want to create kind of a “defending sword” style magic blade.
I thought I’d define it as having the normal sword benefits PLUS, like a bow, it would turn attack against attack into a versus test in conflict. The way I see this, the bow’s ability to do that is defined as keeping your opponent at bay with hails of arrows. This would be a sword capable of keeping your enemies at bay because Magic!
So, my question is this: could this be considered a Level 2 magic item? I’m on the fence. I think that feels right, but I’d like the opinions of those that’ve played the game for a while.
