My Magic Hat

December 13th, 2006


Ooooh! I’m so excited. This is my new hat Mom and Dad gave me for my 3 month birthday. It’s magic. Here’s the whole story:

Forged in the bowels of Mount Erebor by Lord Thorin Oakenshield, the King Under the Mountain, this mighty helm is named Glamdring the Truthsayer and it was imbued with the might of the dwarves. Handed down to Bard the Bowman of Esgaroth upon his slaying of the winged serpent Smaug, it once supposedly gave the wearer the power of telekinesis. With Glamdring on his pate, Bard ruled the land of Dale in peace and justice for many a decade before the dawning of the Third Age brought the ruinous War of the Ring. Upon Bard’s slaughter at the Battle of Dale, Glamdring was lost for centuries in the caves beneath Erebor until one day while questing for Lembas bread, Dad found it.

Basically what it boils down to is a +2 to Mana and an additional 1d8 to Charisma saving rolls. Just a second…


What is it, Dad? Why are you giggling?

You just put this on me to look silly, didn’t you?


My Dad’s a dork.

Piglet out.

    Well, it turns out Dad didn’t “find” this bucket. It was a gift from Cindy and Doug Zahm, friends of my mom.
    Thank you guys, I love the buckets! Sorry about my Dad.

    Is it sad that I actually followed the entire back-story? …Probably. But very nicely executed. ;) Piglet, I’m sorry but your entire family are dorks. It’s just the way it is.

    Nice hat, kiddo. I’m sure this will not be the last time such things are done to you.

    Dude, if you’re gonna use Tolkien, make it sound more like The Hobbit rather than The Silmarillion. I was out like Piglet at the Monterey Aquarium by the time I got to “bowels”.

    The Silmarillion?
    Was the hat SUNG into existence by the Illuvatar? No.
    Also, all the character and place names in my fictional history of the magic hat are names and places from the actual historical writings of Bilbo Baggins, i.e. The Hobbit.
