“In the coldest winter, there is flame. And where there is flame, there is celebration!”
Loptir’s firewater is a magic item I made for our Christmas party game last year. I took the group through the 2013 Holiday module, The Old Gods Return. We had a lot of fun with it, especially with all of the off kilter Nordic and Finnish references there.
For that adventure, I made a magic concoction that gave the drinker a random bonus. I largely based the concept on the Grog of Substantial Whimsy, although my version is much less weird and random, and all in all mostly beneficial.
I liked the concept, as it gave me an opportunity to give my players fun stuff without worrying that the campaign would get bogged down with endlessly circulating powerful magic items.
As I was founding this blog, this was actually one of the things I was going to post very early on, but found to my dismay that the file had disappeared into the ether. I’ve spent the last couple of days recreating the powerful item from memory, and now give it to you, as an early present for the holidays coming up.
