A Club of Contradiction
Hey you, you with an alignment – come over here and get smacked

I came across something interesting the other day. Not “interesting like Kate Upton in a bikini” (or Channing Tatum in a loincloth, as you may prefer). Not “interesting like a spoiled millionaire athlete who spends his entire press conference refusing to have a press conference”. Not even “interesting like a two-headed turtle”. But interesting nonetheless.

A great club that is both Axiomatic and Anarchic. Lawful and Chaotic. It follows the rules while breaking them.

Note the weapon description: anyone Lawful is penalized for using the club. So is anyone Chaotic.

So it is, in effect, penalizing all those who have an alignment. Any alignment. Only True Neutrals (those who lack alignment) could use this without penalty.

It would make a passably useful weapon for a Druid, requiring Neutral and being made of wood, just so long as the Druid doesn’t mind swinging a great club that doesn’t hurt very much.

It is also pink, and very much so. Ardently pink.

Alas, there is no such fashion-conscious, weakly-hitting, two-handed fighting druid. The club is only vendor bait.

But what interesting vendor bait!

🙂 😀 🙂

  1. Talk about exclusive. I’m still tickled from looting a Underwater Action necklace one day, long ago.

    Race restricted: Warforged.

  2. There’s a couple of named items with the same dichotomy.. Twinblade (bastard sword from the tome of untold legends turn-in) & the unstable handwraps (reign of madness line) which also includes chaotic outsider bane & lawful outsider bane, though those effects are apparantly bugged – the wraps even include a concentration debuff due to the cognitive dissonance of wielding it 🙂

What do you think?
