The Leshanna Memorial Fund for Adventurer Greatness

The Leshanna Memorial Fund for Adventurer Greatness was created by the Last Will and Testament of Leshanna, drafted by Tobias the Scholar at Leshanna’s direction. It is by fair the most detailed part of the document, in that it was the page that Leshanna paid the most personal attention to in the drafting process (Tobias’s writing, as all other sections, but much more of Leshanna’s language).

In non-legalese, the opener reads:
“It is too heavy a weight on my daughter’s shoulders, and too unfair a burden for one I was absent for for so long, to force Raevori to be my legacy. Thus, I, Leshanna, first abjurer of Sila, do pledge my writings and my art, my systems and my rule to Tobias the scholar, entrusting him to create a haven of learning in my name, dedicated to preparing adventurers to brave the perils of this strange new land by whatever means available to them.”

Tobias the Scholar (see NPCs of Sila) is the trustee of the fund, but because he doesn’t have a head for business, he has assigned the day-to-day financial operations to Derrick the Merchant (also NPCs of Sila).

Magic Items

In addition to the minor magic items below, the Fund’s most important activity is that it operates the Danger Room, powered by the Crown of Solid Light wrested from the mushrooms of Spider Den on Expedition 38.

Item Value Weight Notes
Ornate Stalker Shortsword 500 gp 2 lb 1d6 piercing damage. Each time an enemy is hit with it, they must make a DC10 Con save vs. being poisoned for one minute, healing word 0/2
Amara’s Healing Touch 600 gp 2 lb This strange gauntlet was wielded by the late Amara Invictus. 1/expedition, a user can make a touch spell attack dealing 3d6 necrotic damage, healing that amount on a hit. It has 3 charges of Blade Ward that can be used as a Reaction.
The Springvine Bow 600 gp 2 lb This longbow was wielded by the late Ent Springvine. As an action, the wielder can spend a HD to make it a +1 weapon for one minute. 1d8 piercing damage base, range 150/600.
Abyssal Guard Longsword 250 gp 3 lb 1d8 slashing, versatile (1d10). Bonus action to deal force damage instead for 1 min, w/concentration
Pike of the Unseeing Witness (WITH EBON BANK) 450 gp 3 lb 1d10 piercing, heavy, reach, 2-handed. For blinded users: grants free trip attempts on hits and can turn into an 8d6 lightning bolt if thrown, once an expedition (owned by Wrenn Tana but made available to the guild)
Dagger of Banishment 300 gp 1 lb 1d4 piercing, light, finesse, thrown (20/60). Any creature injured by this dagger has disadvantage on its next saving throw against banishment spells.
Rod of Banishment 150 gp 2 lb Acts as a pearl of power for the banishment spell (only if the creature passed its save, i.e., gives you a chance to try again before the creature you tried to banish eats you).
Sachet of Poison Purging 150 gp Negligable Technically owned by Sovan, but whatever. Negates airborne poisons. 10 charges. Half the powder is stored in a bottle and the sachet with the other half is sent with every expedition.
Compass of Wayfinding 250 gp 1 lb Magic Utility item, can set 1 ‘waypoint’ as an action (somewhere visited on the same hex) and points way to it unerringly. As an ancillary benefit of that ability, helps keeps party oriented (granting advantage to checks to navigate) underground.
Mace of Terror 3000 gp -3 charges of a 30’ radius around wielder: Fear effect on all targets you choose, DC 15 WIS or they are Frightened 1 minute (disadvantage on all checks/attacks), have no reactions, and have to run away from wielder or Dodge if they can’t get any further. They can save again end of turn.

Silver Horn of the Silver Lancers of the Singing Rainforest 1000 gp 1 lb Blow the horn and the Lancers will come. Single use. (EXPENDED)
Veil of the Desert 400 gp 4 lb Can make forage checks as if in a lush forest in any environment with a dearth of plants. You gather 3x as much food as normal while foraging this way (3, 6, or 9 rations, usually), but your max travel parts per day is reduced from 8 to 6, instead of the normal 7.
Magical Fela Silk 2000 gp 6 lb 1000 gp of silk is enough to make 1 suit of + 1 spidersilk armor. Spidersilk armor is AC12 + Dex, so + 1 spidersilk armor is 13 + Dex. + 1 Spidersilk armor weighs 4 pounds. Once made the magic armor requires attunement, as normal.
Conjure Earth Elemental Gem 1000 gp 0.1 lbs 90’ – an earth-aligned elemental of CR 5 or lower appears, emerging in an unoccupied space within 10’ of exposed earth or stone. The elemental has its own initiative and obeys the user’s verbal commands (no action required); it disappears when it drops to 0 hit points or after 1 hr. If not commanded, it will defend itself from attack but take no other action. The elemental is friendly unless your Concentration is broken, in which case it becomes hostile and may attack you; though hostile, it cannot be dismissed and will remain summoned until killed or until 1 hr has passed.
Tough Quickening Halfplate 1200 gp 40 lb + Con mod max hp, + prof to initiative
Spidersilk Armour 1000 gp 4 lb AC 13 + dex, requires attunement. This belongs to Silverleaf but she is obliged to lend it out on weeks she isn’t using it.
Cleaving Trident 400 gp 4 lb When you drop someone with it, do prof dmg to adjacent ally. 4 charges of Burning Hands. 1d6 piercing (versatile 1d8), thrown range 20/60. This belongs to Mags, but it’s available for loan whenever and she is not at all fussy about the spell charges getting used up.
