    This pdf is 4 pages long, 1 page item-cards, 1 page SRD/editorial - let's check this out!

    Raindrop is an interesting weapon indeed - the signature weapon of a master-spy, the weapon is actually more than meets the eye - disguised as an umbrella, the blade can be drawn from its umbrella-sheath and work as a +1 keen dueling wakizashi. When used in parasol-form, the item can instead work as a +1 animated light steel shield and allows the wielder to act as if s/he had the Missile Shield feat. The wielder also gets the benefits of a glide spell while wearing the weapon and it has an additional, neat idea:

    When spinning the parasol as a free action, you may 1/day produce the effects of a hypnotic pattern spell - affecting 2d4 +10 HD since the spell caps there and the CL of the item is 12. Cool and fitting with the topic, were it not for a central oversight: We don't get to know against which DC the foes are supposed to save, though I presume the caster's int. The effect lasts as long as the parasol, is spun, which is a cool idea.

    The pdf comes with item-cards.

    Conclusion: Layout adheres to the 2-column full-color standard of NeoExodus and is just as beautiful as we've come to expect. The printer-friendly old layout is just as gorgeous. The pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length and the artwork is gorgeous. The Editing and formatting are top-notch and apart from which attribute governs the save versus hypnotic pattern, I don't have any problems. This pdf was first accidentally released as its draft and LPJr Design, in a VERY quick response rectified the issue and updated the pdf, which is great customer-service. The weapon's signature-ability has been streamlined and apart from the slight confusion with the save, I don't have much to complain about, for Raindrop is an interesting, versatile and cool weapon. My final verdict will thus clock in at 4 stars. Endzeitgeist out.

    Hiding things in plain sight is alway a neat trick... especially if you play the Great Game (spying, that is...). So here is the very epitome of tradecraft, what is more innocuous than a ladies' silk umbrella? Just a gaily-painted fashion accessory, surely.

    But no. Within its handle is hidden a fine blace, sword-stick style; while the canopy - due to enchantment - acts as a shield and has the added effect of being able to generate an hypnotic pattern (as in the spell) when twirled.

    The main part of the product gives the item's backstory, how in a few short years both Raindrop and its owner became legendary as she snuck into all manner of places she ought not to have been in yet evaded capture until a cunning trap was laid - and even then escaped before being brought to trial. Not to mention that the umbrella vanished from the evidence locker! Nobody knows where either of them are now...

    There are brief details of the item's construction and two item cards: one with all the details as supplied in the text and a blank one if you have ideas for a variant (she says, wandering off muttering in Bulgarian!). It's a neat and original item which could prove a diverting focus for a side adventure or even more...
