It’s Western Week here at Necromancers of the Northwest, a celebration of cowboys, cowboy hats, cowboy boots, and other cowboy stuff. What Western Week would be complete without a Magic Market offering deals on cowboy hats, six shooters, and maybe a magic lasso? Certainly not this one! Check out these great items to help you explore the wild west side of fantasy.


LASSO OF WRANGLING                            PRICE 12,000 gp
Slot none; CL 1st; Weight 5 lbs.
Aura faint conjuration

Though it appears to be but a normal rope, this coil of coarse hemp betrays its magical nature by twitching and shifting about when left unattended. Despite the rough appearance of this rope, it feels smooth and silky to the touch, allowing it to be easily handled.

This special 20-foot rope can be used like a normal hemp rope for climbing or binding things, but it can additionally be thrown to lasso a creature or object. When thrown in this way, the lasso of wrangling can target any Large size or smaller creature or object within 20 feet. It requires a ranged touch attack to hit. If the attack is successful, the rope coils outward, gaining additional length to form a loop around the target and bind him tightly. The target becomes pinned for as long as the wielder continues to hold the lasso of wrangling, and the wielder gains a +5 bonus to her CMD for the purposes of escaping the pin. Each round the wielder holds the lasso, she may choose to conduct a grapple in the normal fashion. A character that breaks free of the pin also escapes the grapple initiated by the lasso of wrangling. The lasso can also be cut; it has AC 5, hardness 5, and 25 hit points. It can also be burst with a successful DC 30 Strength check.

OUTLAW REVOLVER                                PRICE 34,300 gp
Slot —; CL 5th; Weight 4 lbs.
Aura faint transmutation

Made of dark grey metal, these intimidating revolvers have larger than normal cylinders. Each is engraved with a rebellious motto or symbol.

In addition to functioning as +1 distance revolvers, these magical weapons have greater capacity than normal, holding up to 8 rounds rather than 6. Additionally, when making a full attack with an outlaw revolver, the wielder can choose to make any number of additional attacks, provided the weapon still has sufficient ammunition remaining. These attacks are made at the wielder’s lowest base attack bonus and each subsequent attack suffers a cumulative –2 penalty to the attack roll.

Some of an outlaw revolver’s unique abilities count as an enhancement bonus equivalent, and it is treated as a +6 weapon for the purposes of the cost of further improving its magical abilities.

RENEGADE HAT                                          PRICE 1,200 gp
Slot head; CL 1st; Weight 1 lb.
Aura faint abjuration

Made of brown suede, these fine wide-brimmed hats offer style and comfort, in addition to shielding the wearer from the sun. Each is handmade and bears a maker’s mark to prove its authenticity.

These comfortable hats place the wearer in a renegade mindset, making them difficult to influence and increasing their ability to fight their would-be oppressors. The wearer of a renegade hat gains a +1 resistance bonus on Will saves against mind-affecting effects. Additionally, whenever the wearer of a renegade hat is subjected to a mind-affecting effect, he gains a +1 bonus to attack and weapon damage rolls against the character that initiated the effect for 1 minute.
