Techno-Wizard Star Lance:

These weapons are relatively simple magic items which are easier to make than more powerful techno-wizard weapons such at the Deathbringer and Battle Fury Sword. They are popular with Knights in general including Cyber Knights. Recently, these techno-wizard magic items have been introduced into England and are becoming extremely popular with the knights there.

When not active, this weapon appears to be an extremely short lance of about six to eight feet (1.8 to 2.4 meters) in length and ending in a blunt end instead of a point. Most "Star Lances" widen into a short shield structure just before a narrower handle for the wielder to hold onto. The handle is usually around a foot and a half (0.45 meters) in length. Some lances are made from wood, usually enchanted with the spell of ironwood, while others are made from high tech alloys. Some lances, especially those carried by famous knights, can be extremely decorative with inlaid gold and silver.

The weapon has two separate enchantments. The first is that a powerful lightning bolt can be fired from the weapon. This lightning bolt has a range of over hundreds of feet but requires the expensive of magic or psychic energy each time a lightning bolt is fired. The second power is that a long energy blade can be created, similar to the 'light blade' sword. The energy blade has all the bonuses and penalties of the spell 'light blade' although due to the bulkiness of the weapon, it cannot be effectively used to parry energy bolts.

If the weapon is created by a low level techno-wizard (first through third level), the weapon's energy blade will extend about 2.5 feet (0.8 meters) from the flat tip of the lance and be around 1 inch(2.5 cm) wide. A mid level techno-wizard (fourth through ninth level) will make the lance with an energy blade of around 3.75 feet long and 2.5 inches wide (1.1 meters long and 6.4 cm wide.) A high level techno-wizard will make the lance with an energy blade of around 4.25 feet long (1.3 meters) and have a blade about four inches (10 cm) wide.
