As has become the tradition in Legendary Games treasury-supplements, which contain items suitable for the respective APs, this one begins with a handy table of items by price, this time ranging from 900 gp to artifact-level…so let’s not waste much... We begin this supplement with 4 different armors – the first of which would be the slick hide armor made of magically-preserved asp hides. At a command, this armor can sprout fangs that makes those foolish enough to attack the wearer with natural attacks or unarmed strikes subject to poison – oddly, sans doing damage. Additionally, the ability to exude poison has no daily cap – which makes me wonder, whether the poison can be harvested and/or sold – and how many of the poison-applications can be in effect at a given time. The Dynast Aegis-shield allows for two effects – one, the designation of a charge, who then receives the shield bonus while adjacent to the wielder, and two, add a 30 ft. -sand-based reposition 2/day via a shield bash – alas, this locks the shield...

They’d been invisible right up to the moment someone or something told me that the books on them were stuffed with dirty words and shocking behavior—a rumor whose truth was eventually confirmed by Portnoy’s Complaint. The book I still remember taking down from the shelf was Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers. ” The cover showed a picture of a bored-looking blonde housewife nestled in the lap of a virile black man. Instead, it described a cocktail party given in the late 1960s for the Black Panthers by Leonard Bernstein in his fancy New York City apartment. I’d never been to New York City, or heard of Leonard Bernstein, the conductor of the New York Philharmonic, and had only a vague notion of who or what a Black Panther revolutionary might be—and none of that turned out to matter. The book started out with this weird old guy, Leonard Bernstein, rising from his bed in the middle of the night and having a vision of himself delivering a speech to a packed concert hall while being heckled by a giant black man onstage beside him. Was this one of those stories that really happened, like Bart Starr’s quarterback sneak to beat the Dallas Cowboys, or was it made up, like The Hardy Boys. Then, suddenly, I felt as if I were standing in Leonard Bernstein’s apartment watching his waiters serve appetizers to Black Panthers:. It’s the way the dry sackiness of the nuts tiptoes up against the dour savor of the cheese that is so nice, so subtle. Wonder what the Black Panthers eat out here on the hors d’oeuvre.
