NEW THIS WEEK: Learn about the magic of Nyamban trophies in the Rewards of the Hunt PDF, an out-take from the Ancestral Vault soucebook of magic items for Nyambe: African Adventures. After a hunt, it is a common practice for a Nyamban warrior to cut off some part of his prey as a symbol of his victory. These body parts are often used to decorate weapons, shields, headdresses, or other items. If the kill was especially difficult, the hunter may even pay to have the animal part turned into a magic item. These enchanted animal trophies bestow magical powers upon the items they decorate.
Nyambe is an African analogue setting, which is also tied in to Northern Crown: New World Adventures, Atlas' new D20 setting located in a fantasy version of colonial North America.
