Coconut of Migration
Carried from a far-off land by the ever-faithful, sweet, sweet Concorde, this perfectly-split and hollowed-out coconut is said to have been brought to his hands by a legendary bird known as the swallow. Though whether of European or African descent is hotly contested. In any case, clashing the coconut halves together has a magical effect of increasing overland speed by 50%, though as the coconut shells must be constantly clattered together, the effect on Concorde is exhausting after a full day, draining him of 2 HP. Greater speed can be obtained, but doubling (100%) the rate of overland travel drains the devoted squire of 4 HP by the end of the day. Further, use of the coconut during overland travel tends to increase the chances of unwanted attention (higher chance of wandering monsters at GM discretion.) In addition to its normal overland use, the coconut can be used in a combat situation if dire speed is needed, for clattering the coconuts together thusly for a full round grants all allies within earshot an extra attack and doubles their normal speed for 1d3 rounds, though again this short but dynamic burst of speed drains Concorde of a number of HP equal to the number of rounds rolled, and can only be used twice per day.
