The intended magics for the Orb were the same as it manifests now. It allows a wizard to scry anywhere in the world where there is trouble and cast spells (which are enhanced in power by the item) as if you are there. This allows you to deal with "trouble" without having to leave home. Corvus was a home body after all.
The other part of the write up which you are commenting is the generic addition to all Orb Posts. It also lists the implied powers, in this case, the nudging of minds to perform certain tasks and the more universal orbs being able to interfere with each other's magics. Go to Comment
Besides the obvious pun, it would allow her to hold her "things" someplace that "generally" could not be taken away. Of course, a Bra of Holding should hold her anatomy as well, so no matter how buxom, it should make the wearer flatter than a board, as well as hold all that other stuff. Go to Comment
Wicca is (or more accurately based on) the pagan worship found in Europe (with an emphasis on the traditions of the British Isles) in the Dark Ages. This worship was found in the Celts, the Picts, The people of Gaul, The Isles, and regions of Spain. The Catholic church tried to stamp out the faith by taking over its holidays and making the symbology for the Devil the same as the Horned God the Wicca worshipped. The wicca faith was revivied in the early 60s by those who felt they were reborn priests.

Wicca is the religion of the ancient Celtic peoples. It is a form of nature worship, centering around the Mother Earth and the Horned God, and the cycle of the year. It is... oh heck.. here.... read it yourself- it is fairly short.

I did not remember ever seeing this one before or after the move. I think the toxin idea is interesting. I think the side effect of your sould got booted and something else comes is a bit off, but useful.
I also assume that because of his madness he discovered a way (a technique or process) to create items that no sane person would discover. He could probably kick out an item that would take others years, in a week or two. And he did have 800 some odd years to kill. Go to Comment
That is a good point. Other than the round lake where his tower once was (voop), I had not thought of any other impact. I guess the people in this area of the world would be excellent glass blowers and crystal workers. Corvis is not quite in the middle of nowhere, but you can get there from there. Perhaps I better make a land of Corvis. Go to Comment
I thought about the impact this one man could have on a world. Especially given the legacy of the Orbs. I have been tinkering with a world where you would have epic forces in conflict, with Corvis as part of the back story and that Light and Darkness are now in a clash... lead by two orbs.
For those who don't want an epic campaign, Corvus is an excuse for having thousands of magik items spread randomly all over the world. The Voop dispersed magik items everywhere in the world 1300 years ago. Go to Comment
3) He adds versimiltude, as the Great Mage made most of the world's great items. See a magic orb? You know Corvus probably made it. He adds to the history of the world. It is nice to actually know who created the big items.
4) The Orbs themselves are also Power Players in the world. These powerful immortal items have their own agendas. Their presence shapes the world. This can be used directly, or as an example for hower powerful things shape the world. Go to Comment
