Poor Josias    NPCs  (Minor)   (Religious)

Bad luck just seems to follow him everywhere.  Some say its a curse, others its just in his head.  But there’s one thing everyone can agree about Poor Josias: he is a sad, sad man.

Sekkitan blood diamonds    Items  (Jewelry)   (Cursed)

“In the Black, dead souls creep
Seeking vengence without sleep.
Sacrificed for precious stones,
Rend they now flesh and bones.
Bloody staind and drenched in tears,
Stones cry out to one who hears,
‘Treachery has sown the seeds!
Now you’ll be the one who bleeds!
Wear us well, you who brave,
Next you’ll be in the grave!’”
- Tas-Vessina’s curse

Thaxen    NPCs  (Major)   (Combative)

“8 Ortio, 986 - At last, I’ve captured the amulet! I certainly could not have done it without the help of my unusual mercenary companion. He has very much impressed me with his skill. We encamp in Durath Woods for the night and make for Kharath in the morning.

9 Ortio, 986 - Amulet missing. So is Thaxen. No longer impressed with merc.”

War Forbici    Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Non-Magical)

The sight of a war forbici on the battle field makes some laugh, others fearful, and some simply confused.  In well-trained hands, however, it can be a lethal weapon.

Teldus, the Great Demathan Stuntsman    NPCs  (Minor)   (Artistic/Performance)

Failure.  For most, it is an occasional streak of bad luck to be suffered.  For others… well, it’s a living.

Tagma Drakontas    Society/ Organizations  (Natural)   (World Wide)

“The great hulk of the scaled beast lay wheezing before me, and I am not ashamed to say that I was frightened: though it was injured, I knew the dragon could easily tear me in twain. The young monk, however, knelt beside the creature’s head, whispering to it in a strange growling tongue. I questioned the woman, but she ignored me completely, engrossed in examining the scaly monster. After much badgering, she said merely, ‘I do not mean to be rude, but you are quite a distraction. Please, leave me to my work.’” -Jeron’s Great Journeys, Book III, Chapter 4

Bag on a Stick

Very simple gag but a great one, since it can be used multiple times over, even in the same adventure. Great for tribal natives gone restless and humanoids, but anyone can have set this up. Just what the header says, a simple bag over a stick stuck in the ground or floor.

As GM you can place the bag on a stick anywhere, in a floor crack the heroes have passed before, outdoors in a clearing or path, or at the edge of the PCs' encampment the following morning, what have you. Place anything on the stick - a coiled yellow viper angered by the bag removal, mini crossbow w/poison, transdermal hallucinatory drug dusted on the bag, yellow mold colony, an NPC ally's head, a weapon, scroll tube or satchel, what have you.

The idea is to build tension and/or stall for time/distract the party. Provided it's used properly, you'll be amazed at how paranoid players will get from this simple gag.
