Basically what Dossta already said. Also, I like Lojcrelt as a new twist to the idea of an oracle. Go to Comment

Agreed with the above, complete as a 100 word but also beyond the normal quality of a lot of the 100s. Go to Comment

The Needles of Zhi and Wu (Acupuncture Needle)



Description:



A set of acupuncture needles ordinary in every way except that they are of a green colour as if made of jade, rumoured to be so potent in healing properties that even revival of the dead are achievable.



The Origin:



These needles are the tools of trade of Bian Que, the miracle doctor of the Era of Spring and Fall. It was rumoured that Bian Que is in fact the offspring of the Goddess of Mercy and is a divine entity himself. According to such sources, these needles have developed direct healing qualities themselves as a result of prolonged contact with Bian Que with his godly presence pervading this set of tools.  


Current whereabouts:



Unknown- Immediately following the end of the Era of Spring and Fall comes the Period of the Warring States, a time of turmoil accompanied by many refugees of wars fleeing the Dragon Empire for more peaceful outlying regions. It was speculated that Bian Que and his family might have been among such refugees.



Note: This is historical fiction since it is genuinely recorded in Chinese history that there was a miracle working doctor known as Bian Que active during what is known as the Spring and Autumn and the Warring States Period.

This is supposed to be a Wiki to the extent I thought this will be a fun submission that everyone can contribute items towards if they want to so putting it as a Wiki is just a way of throwing the sub 'open' so to speak. Since you are able to put in that two lines into the sub, it seems that the 'anyone can edit and have it appear as 1 seamless sub' part does work.

As to why this is currently in 'scroll' format, maybe it's because Muro and I used the 'add an idea' button to add our items (actually I couldn't remember what I did exactly but seeing the "user submitted ideas(2)" header I speculated what's what we did)?

Personally I actually thought the 'scroll' format suits this submission more since it's gonna be a list of items (with short descriptions) and if the format is just one big sub without line breaks it's going to be very hard on the eyes.

The Comb of Banafrit


Description:
A finely crafted comb made of a single palm-sized seashell, overlaid with specks of coloured stones. Small cracks along the teeth provide signs of frequent usage.


The Origin:


This item was commissioned by King Amenemhat and presented to his beloved Queen, Banafrit, as a birthday gift. According to folklore, Queen Banafrit has a particularly lustrous mane of hair that King Amenemhat lovingly brushes for her every morning, with this particular comb.

Current whereabouts:
Buried with Queen Banafrit in the royal tomb

The Goblet of Victory


Description:
One of the cursed items recorded in the Annuals of History and Lost Artefacts, described as being surrounded by a dark forbidding aura. In appearance, this is a goblet shaped much like a Viking helmet, with two horns protruding out from the sides. Each of these horns carries a sheath made of silver.


The Origin:


Originally the heirloom of the royal line of Hampstead, this goblet was taken as one of the spoils of war by King Knut I of Stormhenge. This is also the infamous goblet that King Knut IX choked to death on while drinking a toast of celebration over victory at the Campaign of Roxwell.

Current whereabouts:
Unknown- One tale has it that the goblet vanished mysteriously after King Knut IX’s death. Another source is certain that the goblet is now in safe-keeping in the Temple of Zorn, the All Wise and Merciful. There are also periodic rumours of it being seen in all places around the world.

Moonlake's comment on 2012-06-21 03:52 AM
I agree with previous comments on this sub being sort of inconsistent in terms of originality and length of the different god entities. However, I did get a sense of this sub being useful for portraying the different cultures even before I read the dialogue b/w Echo and the author. So my vote is on the higher end. Go to Comment

I like the intertwined benefit and drawback but I somehow feel that the twist section is a letdown, it seems to me this side-effect should really be expected rather than unexpected. But overall, I like this straight-forward sub. Go to Comment

Nomadic Library

       By: Murometz

Saril had a dream. To open a library in the windswept wastes of Naarish, so that the people of the many villages and towns spread over the hundreds of leagues of desert could discover the joys of his books. For a whole year he kept his library open, but alas, almost no one came.

That is when Saril came up with his new idea. If people didn't travel to read his books, he would travel to them! Saril closed his library, hired a team of twelve camels, loaded up the beasts with all of his books and proceeded to invent the first nomadic library.

Now children and adults alike, looked forward to hearing the bells of Saril's camels as he entered their villages, as he tirelessly traversed the deserts in a long circuitous route, visiting every village and town he came across, in turn. It came to pas that Saril's traveling library came to some fame, and that is how the folk of Naarish became literate.

A word of warning though. Naarish has only six thousand volumes. He deals with those that lose or steal his tomes quite "harshly", by bypassing the town or village which was responsible for losing one of his books for that calendar year.
