    A Few Magical Items

    I'm curious to know if I'm able to purchase a bow that instead of firing arrows, fires bolts of pure magic. The bow would only have so many charges before being depleted and would have to be restored either the wielder's mana or through some sort of ritual. The ritual would take longer and couldn't really be done in combat, but would restore the bow's 'ammo' to maximum while the direct mana transfer would be much faster, but in return wouldn't restore a full yield to the ammo supply.

    The other weapon I'm curious about would be a set of three magical crystal orbs that would be controlled mentally via some form of circlet or crown as the focal point. They could be 'shattered' and reshaped into javelin type weapons or combined into one slightly larger than normal shield. The reshaping would be quick, but the crystal is not impenetrable. Would probably be more resistant to magic than physical attacks.

    The final item would be a bag of holding, and what the size limits on those would be.

    I'm curious about the cost, the materials that would be appropriate for the items, and whether or not they are actually feasible items to bring into Althanas.

    Okay let's have a look at this:

    Bow:

    Forr the bow, are you thinking then bolts of energy when you say magic? We can definitely do something like that, with maybe half a dozen shots before it runs out, each bolt the power of a steel shot or similar.

    When talking about mana, are you saying the user's magic energy? So it could be restored back quickly but the person would feel weak and it would only restore three bolts, and maybe at the strength of only an iron arrow? The ritual would take, say a whole half an hour (say, until the next thread or fight) but restore all six?

    We can make the arrows stronger.

    Orbs:

    So there glass or crystal orbs controlled by a user wearing a first. They can be used as combined into a shield or javelin. Would you like to look at using them also as heavy projectiles themselves?

    Bag of holding:

    We can certainly look at this.

    If you could answer these questions and then I'll get some prices. Feel free to catch me in chat.

    Okay as discussed in chat you'd be looking at a bow coming in at 1350 gold.

    This includes an ability for it to fire a dozen bolts of raw energy that are the strength of a steel arrow. Once these six are done it is depleted, however six of the arrows can be gained back by immediately sacrificing some of the user's own energy. It will leave them feeling fatigued. Material of the bow is eklan and it is a short bow.

    The circlet itself comes to 450 gold and is made of Damascus. It controls 3 separate Mukakkanati orbs that can do three things: combine to make a javelin that can then be thrown, combine to make a shield, or be controlled and thrown separately. When combining they 'shatter' but this does not allow the shards to injure others. Instead all they can do is form into the shape. The shield can stop up to teir 3 incoming projectiles.

    The orbs are 2025 gold. Altogether this item collection would cost 2475 gold.

    For a bag of holding you would be looking at a simple arctic beast bag. It would be able to hold up to 500 lbs as a guide, be as big as a shoulder satchel. This would cost around 750 gold.
