This could be the start of a series of thematic rings - take certain words and lead them to the extreme...
In my current campaign, one has a ring called Saving Grace, but it could be called Compassion - the wearer can take damage from others upon himself (1 hp per second) and can pospone all damage he suffers for a small amount of time...you guessed it, then suffer it all at once ;D Go to Comment
One more twist ... the children are happy in their new state - they can be creatures of fairy-tale after all, and some of them can fly, and the transformation is not painful...they WANT to bring their fellows the same joy! So, not only the players are killing the kids, but they also are acting against their will, and the kids are but defending their choice.
The wizard is just a befuddled old man who is following the wishes of the kids...literally.
Hey, could I rate an item with 6/5? I loooove this one. Give it to a player with multiple personalities playing a character with multiple personalities, and you can play one on one ... eh, one on many...too many. Go to Comment
Yes. Yes. Yes. This is a bucketload of fun, and only gets better when the PCs go for the really exotic ideas: "So, Mr. Black Emperor Dragon, would you sit here just for one day? We'll send a lot of tasty morsels your way."
Certainly, the players will not remember all the nastiness they put there to hamber the suitors :D Go to Comment
