  • The Dragon’s Hoard: Rings, Rods, and Staves The second of Flaming Crab Games’ magic item-pdfs clocks in at 12 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 9 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin without much ado with 16 new rings – and ALL of them receive their own b/w-artwork – with one exception that has a black-red-artwork…don’t know why – I think the b/w-version would have been a better aesthetic choice there…but I digress.

The bleeding is hard to stem and also causes dex-damage; Beyond these, the rod can be used to cast nettle/plant-themed spells, upgradeable to their mythic versions by wielders expending mythic power.
