View Full Version : Reward for PDK Greater Oversword" (500 favor)

"{NAME}, you have grown strong beyond measure!. In light of your extraordinary accomplishments, on behalf of both for the Purple Dragon Knights and for Cormyr as a whole, please accept the greatest gift we can bestow: a scale from the mighty dragon Thauglor, who once ruled these lands and for whom our order is named."

Grants a "Scale of Thauglor" (crafting ingredient). BtC, Exclusive, non-vendorable, non-bankable, non-mailable. Can be re-acquired, like a Mark of the Silver Flame.

At the PDK Vendor, add a barter option:

"Scale of Thauglor" + 50 PDK Commendations + 3 Commendations of Heroism

"Polished Scale of Thauglor"
Red Augment
BtC and Exclusive
+1d4 acid damage on hit
Grants Charisma-based attack/damage mod on any slotted sword (as per Cormyrean Knight Training -- http://ddowiki.com/page/Purple_Dragon_Knight_enhancements#Tier_One)

More named augments! This would help fill a void for Cha-based melee characters (sorcerer EKs and, to a lesser extent, Bards/FvS) who are currently limited to either the PDK race or the Dynastic Falcata (good luck getting an epic one!). The Comms are there as roadblocks to getting piles and piles of the Polished Scales, making Jeweler's Toolkits an attractive option rather than re-acquisition, while at the same time allowing for the inevitable accidental loss. Farmers will farm, but 50+3 seems like a reasonable amount (ymmv). ML12 will allow this to be used by TRing characters at a point when other CHA-based weapons start to thin out. The 1d4 acid dmg is largely there as flavor but also to somewhat compensate for the loss of a more powerful augment.

Nice idea, though I'd expand it to include a blue augment option too, or maybe a couple of different options based on turning in different commendations to help it be useful for other character types - favour rewards should be useful for everyone instead of just one character type.

You should name it the Scale of Trogdor. It could give a strength bonus of type "beefy", and a lot of Combustion for burninating-based reasons.

Yeah, this seems a little focused on what you'd personally like instead of what would be good for the overall game.

They need to add something for the last rank of Twelve favor, also. I'd rather they add bonus SP and bonus PRR or something like Coin Lords Finishing School.
