Separately, I wanted to give my write-up on the Sword of Omens. I know lots of other folks have done this, but here's mine.

The Sword of Omens is a +2 holy adamantine shortsword. It has the following abilities:

(Sp) With a command word ("Swords of Omens, give me sight beyond sight!") the sword can grant either clairvoyance or true seeing as if cast by a 12th level Sorcerer.

(Su) At a command word ("Sword of Omens, come to my hand!") the sword will fly into the hand of its rightful wielder (Lion-O). If restrained by bonds, the sword is treated as having a Str of 15 for pulling free of bonds or escaping the grasp of enemies wrongfully wieldng the blade. If the rightful wielder makes a Concentration check DC 15, the sword gains a 1d8 str bonus for the purpose of reaching his hand.

(Su) With a full round action and a command word ("Thunder, thunder, thunder, thundercats ho!") the Sword of Omens changes into a longsword and causes an effect similar to the Inspire Courage ability of an 8th level Bard.
In this form it gains the ability to cast searing light as a 10th level cleric.

All of these abilities fail to function unless the Sword is being wielded by a character of Lawful Good alignment and is being used for Lawful Good purposes. Otherwise it is still a +2 holy adamantine shortsword. The sword will not strike a creature with an aura of good, it will cease movement in mid-swing.

Also, I'd like to mention Lion-O's gauntlet, the Cat's Claw:
+1 Buckler of Climbing, grants a +5 to Climb checks and is able to fire a claw that will latch into stone up to 40' away.

Nice job.

The Claw is a bit more than that, I think, but I honestly can't put my finger on what it's missing.

Either way, great job.

I'm toying with the idea of other character's weapons. At the very least Panthro's harness has the same fire-and-latch ability.

Do you mind if I use this idea in my campaign? I will give you full credit.

Go ahead, I guess. Rankin & Bass designed the thing, not me. And I might add that it's power is a bit on the crazy-high side.
