This is a good item, but I would like more background, and perhaps a history of somekind, who made, why, hwhat happened to it, what is it made of, is it hard to make, etc.
Other then that it looks good, and will soon be in my campaign. Go to Comment
The PCs encounter a strange set of artistic drawings done on the ground as they pass through a city. It has been done in chalks and no one saw who did it. Wizards might recognize the writing within the colored square as an obscure and dead language with a message stating that a prominent wizard and a retired bard have discovered how to populate Arcadia with the spirits of the dead!
Is it a local hoax, or are the PCs crossing the path of a very deranged and possibly dangerous mage?
