True enough. By world, I /had/ meant the entire thing - the world's star, the world's internal heat, the air, water, minerals, essential living things, etc.

And really, some of the most potent things are the most unassuming. I try to keep that true with what I do. ;) Go to Comment

Or perhaps you need to seek out the bowmaker, or his spirit, to get him to lift the curse from the weapon. Go to Comment

Of course, those same friends would probably end up being considered spineless cowards for protecting the imbiber, holding back, and showing prudent concern. Go to Comment

Heh. Yeah, only the desperate or those with no sense of smell/taste can find it in themselves to down the goop.

I think this potion really helps explain the kick-in-the-door munchkin play-style. You know, where no matter how many times they kick the door in only to find that the door was trapped, or they woke the sleeping troll behind the door, or whatever else, they keep doing it, blindly charging in until they get killed.

Whiteblade

Kassil's comment on 2004-04-13 04:23 AM
I hadn't considered the assassin side of it, actually. Hmmm. And since very few people have true 20/20 vision, the first part would be of benefit to just about everyone, however minor the enhancement.

Given that I concieved of an wrote this in the 20 minutes right before I left for work, I think I did reasonably well, though... Go to Comment

And Silas: Yeah, that would be a whole new world to your monk - as long as he was touching Whiteblade, he'd be able to see perfectly. Could be... Addictive. Go to Comment

Kassil's comment on 2005-10-23 04:55 AM
Sigurd: The blade doesn't glow. Go re-read the description. What it does is strip the ability to see shadows from you - so you can see however far you would under full daylight. To the person using this blade, there *is* no dark to see in, and the blade corrects your eyesight to a perfect 20/20... Which is all stated in the item description, which I'm guessing you didn't read. Go to Comment

Kassil's comment on 2004-01-19 02:57 PM
An elf devoted to the god of fire. An entertaining concept, and one sure to amke the rest of his people a touch uncomfortable around him - though if he's charismatic enough, I could picture there being a campaign based around a schism among the elves - some turning to join him, while others are horrified by the thought of worshipping the 'destructive fire'...

Monastery of Moldan
Locations  (Establishment)   (Forest/ Jungle)
Kassil's comment on 2004-04-12 06:01 PM
One thing I wonder is this - if the swamps are so difficult to pass through, and the island is fertile enough to grow food on (clearly not a rocky outcropping), where do the monks get their metal from in sufficient amounts for some of these listed things, like the gate and such? Do you arrive, tell them what you want, and they send you to fetch supplies? Do they have a secret mine? Does their god provide the metal? Go to Comment

Centipede Nails

Kassil's comment on 2006-03-22 11:26 PM
Hadn't noticed these before, but I like the concept. They're the sort of thing that your average adventurer would see in use, and smack himself in the forehead while exclaiming, "Why didn't I think of that?"

Useful, not overwhelmingly powerful, and frail enough to be able to be used for creative trouble by the GM. Go to Comment
Muzzled Mouse
Items  (Tools)   (Non-Magical)
Kassil's comment on 2008-10-24 04:50 PM
I could easily see this sort of thing in some cities large enough to have a slums, or where everything is primarily built of wood. I could even see it in Kuramen, although someone likely has the bright idea of mixing thaumatech with it - rune-scribed leather that enhance the rat's teeth, and for the well-to-do rogue, a clockwork-familiar rendition that doesn't need such careful handling to avoid injury, and which can chew through much, much more.

Muzzled Mouse
Items  (Tools)   (Non-Magical)
Kassil's comment on 2008-10-25 04:13 PM
Either would work; it simply requires the correct rune or glyph. Using a glyph on the leather that's besigned to make an item that enhances the wearer is quite possible; it's far more expensive than a rat-tattoo, because you need to have the runes set to affect something other than the item they're on, but they have the advantage that if the rat dies, you can reuse the wrappings indefinitely.

You could probably get the same result temporarily from an alchemical mix, of course, which would be good for thieves who are too strapped to get either the tattooing or the leather engraving. Go to Comment
The Dragon Carved Egg
Items  (Home/ Personal)   (Sentient)
Kassil's comment on 2004-04-12 06:24 PM
As a vague curiosity, does it exert a charm-like effect over the dragons? Do they willingly serve it, seeing it as something potentially able to outlive them and thus potentially wiser? Are there dragons who might be immune to the sphere's control? Does it make a difference if the dragon in question is exceptionally stupid or intelligent? Go to Comment
Bra of Holding

Kassil's comment on 2007-12-27 05:33 AM
...The sheer number of females who store their money, credit cards, and similar items in their bras is both disturbing and revolting.

Why revolting?

Picture a twenty dollar bill, sandwiched up against a chunk of sweaty skin for several hours because folded bills don't breathe.

That's why it is absolutely revolting. Go to Comment

Not a bad idea, for a cruel trick to play. Of course, if you feel like being evil, it could be inflicted on an NPC, and the players could have to save the NPC... Plot hook there...

...Personally, I'd like to know where he got the ring, and how it was made. Go to Comment

Indeed it did. Too well. Woe to anyone who puts that ring on without anyone around to save them from it... Go to Comment
