This installment of the Treasures of NeoExodus-line is 3 pages long, 1 page SRD and 1 page item-cards, leaving us with 1 page content, so let’s check this out!
Silence is a legendary spear created by an Arman shaman (or received – none knows how…) to defeat the sorcerer-kings of Abaddon and thus, this +1 vicious cold iron short spear is a bane of magic users:
Silence can be used to thwart enemy magic: Beyond a +2 resistance bonus to saves, the spear has an interesting signature ability: When the user is targeted directly or even just included in an area of effect spell, he can use an AoO to brush the spell aside, his attack-roll becoming the SR for the respective spell, on a 20 even sending the spell back at its caster. Furthermore, the spear may deliver a greater dispel magic at CL 13 once per day.
A powerful ability indeed, even with the caveat of working only vs. spells that allow SR and against spells of which the wielder is aware!
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn’t notice any glitches. Layout adheres to the new parchment-background 2-column NeoExodus-standard and the pdf comes with no bookmarks, but needs none at this length. The pdf comes with a more printer-friendly version that adheres to the old NE-standard with its white background. The artwork of Silence is nice, as we’ve come to expect from LPJr Design. Silence is an interesting weapon with an iconic, unique signature ability whose limits serve to offset the potentially game-breaking powers of its special ability. While requiring a handle with care when introduced by the DM, the weapon makes for an iconic addition to the game and thus I’ll settle for a final verdict of 5 stars, though with the caveat of the DM realizing the power of this weapon.
