Nimail was a famous half elven mage/rogue.
His exploits were both legendary and condemned by polite society.
He came from a poor background, becoming a street urchin, then a
thief. Later in his long career he discovered a natural talent for
wizardry and developed it. No matter the degree of success attained
he always maintained his ties to the street life. Nimail became
famous for his daring thefts. Sometimes of items which had no real
value but were reputedly impossible to steal. He also fought battles
against that which oppressed the common people, be it a rampaging
monster or a cruel tax collector. These bracers were his finest
Abilities: A pair of worn copper bracers, each is inset
with 4 gems: top, bottom,left,right. These gems are each an Ioun
stone. The bracer's unique design allows these stones, or others
if changed, to function while the bracers are worn instead of the
stones circling overhead.
Besides the 8 total Ioun stones, the bracers
contain several small compartments designed for holding thieves
picks and small tools, nothing over an ounce or 2 in weight or over
a few inches in length. The bracers themselves provide an armor
class of 4, with a bonus of 2 to all saving throws.
Suggestions: Any PC rogue finding these would up his prestige
amongst other thieves and common folk tremendously. The DM might
consider allowing the bracers to be found with out any Ioun Stones
to lower its power level. The wielder would then be aspired to quest
for such items. Also other abilities could be put into the bracers.
Examples: A 1/day shocking grasp ability, a Knock spell ability,
or perhaps a wizard lock ability. This item is conceivably very
powerful, so consider its ramifications before using in your campaign.
