Out of curiosity I
decided to create
something that a friend of
mine back in Ak'Anon would
have found useful. He was a
rogue by trade, and we had
many adventures together.
I remember one time in
particular we went to
Freeport, I think I was
selling some basic tinkered
items I had made. He was
doing something he wouldn't
tell me about. We were
staying at this inn that
had a locked door that he
seemed preoccupied with
gaining access to. He did a
lot of planning, timing
guards passing by, checking
how often the chambermaid
would come through to check



on the rooms. He asked for
my help and we sprang into
action near midnight! He
snuck quietly down the
hallway, making sure not
to cause the wooden floor
to creak (which had
earlier in the day). He
was quite stealthy, I
watched from the end of
the hall to let him know
if anyone was coming. Once
he got to the door he
reached deep into his
pocket. He then pulled
out.. Nothing! He had
forgotten his lockpicks
back in Ak'Anon. I tell
you, he was furious. I had
never seen and never would
see him so red in the face
again. So I decided to make
a set of mechanized
lockpicks that fit into a



pair of gloves. I took a
pair of Chainmail gloves,
and attached a device to
the top of it. I took a
set of mechanical lock
picks and attached them to
the gloves with a pinion.
To set the switch on the
gloves I used a coiled
spring and a ball bearing.
It uses a class six mana
battery to keep it in
constant working order. I
am sure that he would have
liked to have had these
gloves back on that hot
summer night in Freeport.

I felt the sudden urge to
go fishing, but realized I
only had one piece of bait.
As soon as I thought of



it, it came to me. I can
simply add one of my
perpetual air pumps,
to a base prototype along
with gnomish bolts, metal
twine, and a planing tool.
I will also need two
matching gears, but I
cannot seem to find the
right gears here. Something
is making me think of an
underground area, but it is
not clear to me why. Well,
it will have to be a short
fishing trip.
