You mention that the kobold forging the scimitar is unusual, and I agree, but why did he do it? You need to fill that out. The friend who still wields it, is a drow or hates drow, I can't tell from your description. I doubt many people here know what a shadow fiend is, I know I don't. This must be a powerful kobold to forge swords and imbue them with magic. Why did he do all this anyway?
The sword is a upside, but the powers aren't really overpowerful, as long as they have limits. How long can you stay invisible? If it's unlimited, it is unbalanced. Infrared is kind of a munchkin/ rules lawyer kind of thing, but not that important.
I do commend you for not useing any system specific stats, good job there. As the sword is, I can use it in any game.
You have fleshed out more of the motives behind the creation of the weapon and taken away details that didn't help and confused the nature of the item. Good work, but I assume you have some personal reason for using a kobold, a race not thought highly of in the art of magic or weapons smithy, to be the creator of this weapon.
In all the changes you've made, you've made a great deal of simple spelling errors. Fix those and you'll get a better rating.
Since the Hearthstones have to be enchanted to a spot, you would only be able to find them at waystations and other well travelled camping spots. The flaming discus is out, but the interrogation device could still work, just more vlad the impaler style.
Imagine a holy city with intricatly carved stone courtyards. Invading army comes to strike down the 'heratics'. Army enters courtyard, a single word is spoken, army falls. Cooool. 8)
I can understand how the blade can be concealed in the kerchief, I can only imagine the flaws some of the prototypes and knock-offs might have. Who wants to blow thier nose and get a blade jammed a couple of inches into thier face?
Pirate Penguin, if you don't have anything to say about WHY you did or didn't like the post, DON'T comment! Post WHAT you didn't like about the item, so that we can all see the issues you have. Just saying it wasn't good doesn't help anything.
I am in agreement with Capt, puctuation-wise, I didn't see the spelling problem, but whatever.
I would like to know a few things. First off, what is this "sympathy" spell it can cast on itself, I've never heard of it. Also, how did it become cursed? Was it once good and became tainted, or was it made to be cursed?

I can definiatly see this becoming really addictive, especally in the hands of elderly royalty. Another potential drawback would be that illusions would now be seen with perfect clarity, and since nothing has shadows now, would be rather hard to discren.
Oh man, I'd completely forgotten about your translator manfred! And the two are so very alike. LOL! My apologies.
It is interesting how the Translator of Political Corectness gets the PCs in bad situations by making bad comunication good, and the Potion of Mis Understanding Languages does that by making good comunication bad.
Now if I can just figure out a way to get the translator to drink the potion... Go to Comment
I suppose as long as the other metals in the alloy can withstand the tremendous heat of forging Helspar, it would be possible, but aside from it's inherent heat, Helspar is a poor metal. It's soft and doesn't hold an edge unless forged, and it is rather expensive, due to the difficulty of mining it. Go to Comment
The secret for immortality has been discovered by an eccentric wizard/mad scientist. Its found you need to reapply once a month. As people stop dying, and the birth rate increases exponentially, people are forced into homelessness, because of the need for food reamins the same, and food is not being produced fast enough to feed the undying population. The PCs have to find the creator and kill him, and destroy production, to save the world from undying, unending torture from hungryness.
