Javelin of Justice
History/Background: It is uncertain when or where these devices
originated, but it is believed to have been created in Grecia's Golden Age,
as several historical accounts show some of the renowned philosopher-mages
(as well as their legendary heroes) using these javelins when fighting
netherlife. Since then, the knowledge has been dissiminated throughout
most of AErth.
Such devices are rare, as they must be made of valuble metal, as well
as require heka-forging by a White Mage or a cleric of those deities of the
Sunlight ethos. As such devices are "one-use", they are usually reserved
for use against powerful netherlife and undead, and are likely to be saved
by powerful individuals and organizations until needed.
Appearance: A Javelin of Justice appears to be a normal Javelin of
excellent or better quality--however, it is always constructed of some
valuble metal known to be baneful to netherlife and evil, either silver or
gold. Sigils of magickal power can be found on the device, usually
colored blue. Inspection of the device via castings and powers that read
aura or heka-flows will reveal heka of positive (Empyreal) nature and
Powers: The Javelin is a one-shot device. When thrown, the Javelin
transforms into a powerful bolt of Positive Energy. The Bolt strikes its
target unerringly (no roll needed), doing 77 points of Impact Damage. The
damage is not modified by strike location, but it is modified by
susceptibility to positive heka. (In otherwords, treat as a Heka attack
rather than a Javelin attack).
Command: No Command Needed.
