Ack! I know! Item!!

"The Bastard's Badge"

Variations:
A) A Shield
B) A Pin (trinket, if non-class specific is possible)
C) An Amulet (shield/badge shaped)
D) A Rapier (because the hilt guard is shield-y)

Why "Shield" themed? Google "Badge" and look at images.

In terms of power, I think a Bastards' Bouncer would be better. Or the Bastards' Honey Badger of course. Because nasty Honey Badger don't care. ;)

It certainly does count for the stretch goal.
 
But yeah the important point is that our campaign has been very inclusive and open from the very beginning.
 
It's one point I'd like to elaborate a bit on. When we started this campaign, there were a few, hidden, not-so-nice innuendos that we were some rich, spoiled people, playing with our money, excluding others who couldn't afford it.
And that basically we just wanted this campaign to show off our wealth to people with less money because we had nothing better to do with our time.
 
Those were very subtle innuendos, but I want to make clear that I did understand them and their meaning.
And I will not forget them. Some people did try to paint a rather very bad picture about us.
 
And that is why at this point I am all the way more proud of what we have achieved. Because this entire campaign we have been very inclusive. We have not excluded anyone from our campaign. Everyone was free to input their ideas and opinions and their vote on our polls - independently from whether they had donated or not. And in the end everyone will profit from our contribution to the game.
 
This campaign was open and inclusive and it was based on voluntary participation. It was there for the entire community.
And some people could afford to spend A FORTUNE on it, and some people could afford to only spend $5 on it and they did.
 
I am proud of our campaign. I am very happy and thankful for all of your contributions. But I will also not forget the people who made those ugly yet subtle innuendos about us mentioned above.

Yeah, and those innuendos were patently ****ing ridiculous. I'm near the *bottom* of the socio-economic ladder; I had to work my ass up from living under a bridge five years ago. I'm *definitely* a member of the BIB, badge or not, and I *definitely* contributed what I could to this campaign, and I don't feel the list bit like this is any money-club.

I've been catching bits and pieces of your life throughout these threads and it seems to me that you've been through some tough """". You hang in there buddy and know that I (for myself and I'm positive there are many more) appreciate your feedback and support.

Actually, Obsidian has quite the history with nasty badgers too. I fondly recall a certain epic badger in Mask of the Betrayer.

I'd be down for any item that summons a badger. :)

Keep in mind the restrictions. Any item that can summon something has the natural restriction that this "something" has to have been implemented in the game already.

 

So to say, let's imagine we wanted an obsidian figurine that could summon a badger. Obsidian would probably only do that if badgers were already part of the game.

 

I'm pretty sure they would not design a new animal just for us. The same would probably apply to any item with any other spell effect. That spell effect would have to have been implemented already.

 

On the matter of badgers themselves: they're awesome, I like them, but I must also say I like beavers even more.

But beavers are almost always neglected in RPGs :(

We could also have it summon "one of many bears".

As a Canadian, I approve of this message. More beavers in RPGs!!!

If it summons something, I'd want our item to be the only item that summons that class of animal or beast.

 

I wonder if they could add particle effects to it for us. An Obsidian Beaver with maybe some cloud and lightning effects. Sort of like the Ol' Black Isle logo.

Also I do like the idea of a creature that is only knee high. So Beaver works. Wolverine would be cool too. Lynx. I dunno, I'm feeling North American creatures at the moment. But if the game will be more tropical, maybe an Ant Eater, Tapir, whatever they got for us.

 

Fluffle you need to get a scoop on options.

Blade of the First Bastard

 

"Many years ago, a noblemen sired a son with his mistress, and upon discovering her pregnancy, disowned the woman and her unborn child. As the years went by, the boy grew to be a thief, a crook, and a general menace to society as a whole. Upon the death of his mother he learned the truth of his lineage from her will, and went out in search of his father. When he found his father and was prompted turned away, he struck his father down with an ornate, obsidian long sword that hung on a nearby wall. The boy fled, sword still in hand, and stole a ship that belonged to his father. Over the years this bastard would find others like him, children disowned by noble families; and together they would form the Black Isle Bastards. A crew of cut throat pirates that ransacked the ships of nobles all across the seas. Although the first Bastard eventually passed, his legends, and his crew would live on. This sword hung in the captains quarters for many years before it was passed onto you, the Watcher."

 

 

Not a very good story, and kinda long. But I've had that sitting in my head for a while and thought someone here might get a kick out of it.

I left out any real names or places, just in case Fluffy Senpai notices me.
