Magic item in Dolmenwood: The bag of bleats

Appearance: A bagpipe made from the torso of a long-horn goatman noble. Dark grey fur covers it with the head and horns prominently displayed on the back of the instrument.

  • The eyes sometimes open staring pleadingly at anyone near by
  • Mushrooms grow in the fur
  • Makes horrible bleating sounds when played (eeirly similar to a cry for help in Gaffe)
  • Smells like old cheese and it gets even worse when it is played

Effects:

  • Goatmen must make morale check of flee
  • Proficient players (such as a bard or minstrel) can with a 1-in-6 play a horrid note that breaks glass within 30' radius

My own Old School Adventure set in the Scandinavian Vendel period!

Design to be run with Old School Essentials but should work fine with whatever classic B/X clone you like!

Get the PDF on my Itch.io page or print on DriveThruRPG

This has been brewing for a long while and I am finally happy to share it with you.
