” ‘It’s worth a shot, but I’ve been doing this more than 30 years and I’ve never arrived anywhere earlier than the nick of time.’ “
-Julio Scoundrel in Order of the Stick #937-Travel Time
I saw the post today and the hilarity of it and the genius of the name, Mechane, inspired this lovely artifact.
The Mechane is a flying ship, empowered by the little known God of Drama, Euripides. Its power is such that its speed of flight is determined by the urgency of the riders to arrive at their destination. The speed is metered such that the ship only ever arrives just in time to save the day. The Mechane can find itself carried errantly by the wind if it is not guided with much purpose at all.
The Mechane is hardly the type of item that the players would get in a game, but it might be nice for NPCs who help them. Would you give the PCs the Mechane, to help them get where they’re going on time? Mind Weave Divine Artifacts are very different than enchanted items. They can do a much wider range of things. Any you would like to see? Comment below and let us know!
