Quick! You have 25,000 gps. What do you buy?


RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

My PC is a 14th level chaos gnome dragon shaman. He mostly uses special abilities and magic items that do "neat things" rather than direct damage. He's got the Big Six covered, plus a staff of fire, a staff of life, a 10th level wand of lightning bolts, ring of the ram, ring of telekinesis, ring of evasion, ring of protection, not enough hands, bracers of repulsion, an intelligent flying carpet, wand of haste, wands of clw, eyes of doom, circlet of persuasion.

We just sold a bunch of loot and has 25,000 gp.

What should he buy?

Liberty's Edge

A Hand of Glory would allow you to wear one of your extra rings. And an Efficient Quiver would help organize and allow the easy switching between your wands and staffs.
Hand of Glory
Efficient Quiver

Hand of Glory:
Aura faint varied; CL 5th

Slot neck; Price 8,000 gp; Weight 2 lbs.


This mummified human hand hangs by a leather cord around a character's neck (taking up space as a magic necklace would). If a magic ring is placed on one of the fingers of the hand, the wearer benefits from the ring as if wearing it herself, and it does not count against her two-ring limit. The hand can wear only one ring at a time. Even without a ring, the hand itself allows its wearer to use daylight and see invisibility each once per day.

Efficient Quiver:
Aura moderate conjuration; CL 9th

Slot —; Price 1,800 gp; Weight 2 lbs.

This Appears to be a typical arrow container capable of holding about 20 Arrows. It has three distinct portions, each with a nondimensional space allowing it to store far more than would normally be possible. The first and smallest one can contain up to 60 objects of the same general size and shape as an arrow. The second slightly longer compartment holds up to 18 objects of the same general size and shape As a javelin. The third and longest portion of the case contains as many as 6 objects of the same general size and shape as a bow (spears, staffs, or the like). Once the owner has filled it, the quiver can quickly produce any item she wishes that is within the quiver, as if from a regular quiver or scabbard. The efficient quiver weighs the same no matter what's placed inside it.

Noticed you don't have a headband slot (circlet is head, not headband). Since you're a Druid you'll want to be adding Wisdom with a Headband of Inspired Wisdom.

If you are a crafter or there's one in the group have him make you the +6 version for 18k.

Oh and I'm all for a Portable Hole. A gnome with a 10x10 room essentially would be useful.

I had a rogue with this in the Temple of Elemental Evil(TM) campaign where I put a Ballista in it. Anytime we had to defend a room I would pull that out and place the ballista at the door. Sneak ATTACK!!!

I'm not a druid, I'm a dragon shaman!!!!!!!!!! RROOOOAAARRRR!!!! **fiery doom and destruction***

Also not an archer. I already have a headband item of Charisma +4 AND a head item of Circlet of Persuasion, and a Dragon Mask (see invis 2/day)...and Eyes of Doom. My headspace is all filled up! Hahaha!!!

I already have special "legacy" armor.

I'm thinking the easiest thing to do is either upgrade the plusses of my shield, mace, belt (Dex and Con), and armor, or find a nifty staff.

Also, the game starts 8 minutes ago! :-p

Are you trying to be the red power ranger or something?

Purchase a Luck Blade with no wishes left in it. 22,000 gp and it gives you a +1 luck bonus on saving throws and a free reroll on any one check 1/day.

Marvelous Pigments?

Some metamagic rod?

Better version of something you already have?

A wagonload of alchemical bombs and a ramp, to do a strafing run with your carpet?

spend it all on a +5 Cloak of Resistance.

Seriously, that thing will save you against SO MANY THINGS, and it's so cheap!

A castle and a lot of hookers. Gnomes are promiscuous.

A bunch of dragon eggs to raise an army of dragons.

Purchase the freedom of a pseudodragon.
Work toward making it healthy and let him/her go.
If it chooses to follow, then you have your first cohort without needed to spend a feat on leadership.


Save up 25000 more gold and buy an airship.

Go all steampunk on your DM.

Silver looks nicer than gold.

Buy yourself a Rod of Wonder! As a gnome you can get the feat that let's your reroll it.

Nothing beats starting the day by shaking your Rod, turning your small size into diminuitive.

I'd vote for a Metamagic rod of some sort

Pay a half-orc to claim he is your long lost uncle and get your last name changed, in the nearest city registry, to match his.
Purchase a pouch of neverending seeds and start spreading the love around the world.
Make an igloo in the middle of summer and make it permanent.
Shapeshift into a newt and pay someone to try to change you back...well, i got better.

I actually had my druid shaman start to create his own financial empire hiring fairies in the forest to grown an herb garden.
I was also following the old Druid Handbook rules, with GM approval of coarse, of creating a magical herb garden to use as spell components and things to store spells.

Where can he shop?

What item slots does he have that are open?

Can you get items enchanted or just bought?


A sudden windfall of 25,000 Gold? I would probably use it to buy the land in a mountain area where I found some sort of valuable ores and set up a mine. I need SOMETHING to fuel the materials needed in golem creation, and this helps that out pretty nicely.

It was the last session of that campaign. I bought a staff of obstacles, and it actually saved my life! (I hid from a gargantuan blue dragon in a dome-shaped wall of stone....)

A small army of simulacrums of yourself. At 14th-level, each one would only cost 4,410gp to purchase.

buy a castle and a bunch of servants

I already have a cloak +4, I already get a luck re-roll from my race (Races of Stones chaos gnome), I can't metamagic rods (not a spellcaster!), we already have a faerie dragon cohort in the party, we have access (via teleport) to a big trade metropolis of gnomes.

We solved 3 riddles, fought 4 half-fiend griffons pulling a flying chariot with an evil cloud giant priestess in it, then fought 2 juvenile blue dragons, then their mother, then contacted a gold dragon and got our permanently enlarged red dragon draconic bloodline battle sorcerer feral kobold turned into a permanently enlarged gold dragon draconic bloodline battle sorcerer feral kobold.

How about you see if you can get your ring of evasion's magical properties to be put on your ring of telekinesis?

That way you could wear that one ring and a ring of protection... as it seems you have slot issues.

A town?

At least hire a dozen bards to spread the word of your heroic and adventurous deads.

I was thinking of making a ring of ramming telekinesis (ring of the ram + ring of telekinesis) and a ring of deflecting evasion (ring of protection + ring of evasion).

But the campaign is probably over. People are moving away, including the GM. We might Skype it or PbP it. We'll see. We DO know an NPC that is a master ring forger.

So we got that going for us.

Which is nice.


83 Bird Feather Tokens.

Use them to send letters telling people that you are an Elven princess needs 5000 GP so that you may escape from the palace that your evil father lock you in. After you escape, you will reward them with riches beyond their wildest dreams.

Since the scam hasn't been invented yet, you're bound to at least get your money back and have a good laugh.
