'Barbarism is the natural state of mankind,' the borderer said, still staring somberly at the Cimmerian. 'Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.'

Tool Trunk Thursday: Sextant

Welcome Dog Brothers and Sword Sisters to the next installment of Tool Trunk Thursday! The feature where I present a piece of equipment for Conan 2d20 and its effects in a friendly card-shaped format.

WHAT!? Thursdays seem to come back around faster and faster, but this time it failed its stealth roll. Today I present a piece of equipment that many might think to be out of place, and indeed I think this item will be exceedingly rare, and only among the most advanced of the sea going countries.

Sextant


It is not known where these devices originated, but many believe they came out of Stygia, and the infernal sorcerers that dwell there. Either those learned men know more about the sky than others, or some demon from the outer-dark gave the knowledge to them for some reason known only to it. Its origins remain shrouded in mystery, but the use of the device is unmistakable.

These rare and coveted devices have allowed the boldest captains, both pirate and otherwise the ability to sail like never before. Leaving the sight of land and exploring new areas and routes. Captains are most certainly willing to kill to obtain one, or die to protect one they have.
