It can be dangerous trying to send someone a message.  Spoken words may be overheard, written correspondence may be intercepted, and body language may be seen.  Did you ever wish you could think the words and they would be known?

Robe of the Viper    Items  (Clothes)   (Magical)

Gareth turned and squinted uneasily over his shoulder.  He could have sworn he heard a high pitched hiss.  He turned back to continue through the dim underground passageway.  It was then that he saw them.  A pair of ruby red eyes, glowing faintly a few feet front of him.  He had to look up to see them, and that is saying something, given Gareth’s generous stature.  The strike was quick…he had no chance.  The last thing he remembered were the eyes hovering above him and the fangs dripping venom.  And was that a second set of eyes gleaming beneath the first…?

Man-Eating Grapes!

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry, if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes. The grapes literally eat the victim from the inside out, via cell death, dissolving organs and flesh in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, from the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
