By frozen liquid, I don't mean metal. You are correct though, and I should be more precise. I pretty much mean water-like, but most natural state liquids would suit me just fine. For example, an ice demon could build his fortress out of frozen blood from his enemies and use Icegates to traverse the blood.

Ok ... that's a really cool idea. I'm going to make that my next sub. Go to Comment

Hanetta's Millstone

OmegaDraco's comment on 2012-02-08 11:37 AM


I like it. Simple, useful, sentimental, and not at all overpowering. How big an object will fit into it? If someone's hand is caught in it, will the millstone magically keep grinding and pull them in or does it require manual turning of a crank? If gold is ground up, will the resulting bread be a sparkling glitter-gold bread?



As strange as it sounds, I could see this item as a way to "destroy" an indestructible evil artifact. The artifact wouldn't be destroyed; it would just change forms to flour and thereafter baked into safe, edible, and tasty bread. "Give us the Conqueror's evil Medallion of Malice, or we will kill you and take it anyway!" "I ground it into flour to make my bread! What now, punk?"

Thanks for the feedback. I made some changes to explain the way it works in greater detail.

I wanted to create a fun utility item that has many uses. I really like the ideas you've come up with so far. Go to Comment

I welcome any thoughts, additions or plot hooks that you can contribute. I am totally fine with creating interesting twists on otherwise mediocre magic, but I would love to hear what others hear have to contribute rather than hear mediocre feedback.

Please do not be discouraged. I fully welcome any constructive criticism that you have, and I don't care about the rating of any of my posts. I'm just looking for a constructive outlet. Go to Comment

Love It!! I really was going for an item to help a fat lazy guy get around, and I love the ideas you've got to back it up. I feel that I could do a great deal better with my posts, but I usually only jump on to spew out and flesh out an idea brewing in my head. I look forward to having time to collaborate more before posting my subs. You are right, in this post, I should play to the funny.

You actually meld into the stone. You can hang out in the stone for as long as you care to, but if the stone is broken while you are in it, well...imagine being a statue and getting broken in half. The stones do not need to be connected in any way. You could carry around a huge slab of stone on a wooden cart for quick transport to wherever and back if you wanted to. You can't stick your hand through one stone and out of another without completely walking into the stone; you (and everyone with you) have to completely meld into one stone before you can teleport to and exit the destination stone.

You certainly do make a good point. I spent too much time on the origin story when I could have written a paragraph or two on the details of the item's appearance. I also know that there is nothing too special about the origin. Some people appreciate more back story while others appreciate more tangible descriptions. More or less, I just had an idea and tossed it here to see what people would think of it. You are welcome to write an alternative back story (or even ignore it), but I believe that I will take your advice and try to shorten familiar concepts rather than over explain them.

I also corrected my spelling. Thanks for pointing it out. Go to Comment

If I gave this item to the players in my campaign, they would cut everyone the saw just to be sure. I like the idea of introducing this item for a single mission to expose an impostor.

You could also give this item to someone who is using it to resist the curse by cutting himself during the full moon. Go to Comment

Sweet idea! At first, I read the squirrel submission and thought it was kind of cool, but with this I love it!

OmegaDraco's comment on 2012-02-03 01:43 PM
Lightning would actually melt the metal in the trees, fusing the rare and precious metals together. It would be a rare thing indeed to find an item forged from the fused metals of a Hemangini Tree. One could argue that the trees are parasites until a strike of lightning turns them into something much more valuable.

A clever miner would plant these trees instead of spending years of digging out an extensive mine. Just plant and harvest the trees a few years later. Maybe dwarves hate these trees so much because a commoner could use them to extract metals with no effort while the dwarves spent thousands of years perfecting their mining. Go to Comment

Bobeerin

OmegaDraco's comment on 2011-08-31 08:38 AM


Fun thought. I enjoy thinking of a herd of ankle-sized oxen. The picture provided makes it a little difficult to picture the oxen as blue though. I thought it was very clever to work out why the Bobeerin always die in captivity. Nicely done there. The first paragraph is very artistic with good flair, but it really doesn't flow right with the rest of the submission; it easy to read, but it lacks the flair. In general, I really like it. It could be very fun flavor text for any tundra campaign.

Rings of Mutual Exclusion

Angry Professors:



Often when a classroom is full of unruly students, it can become difficult for a teacher to maintain order while teaching an effective lecture. In cases like these, instructors often require each student to wear a Ring of Mutual Exclusion during the class period. This makes each student feel like he or she is the only student in a large, empty classroom. The instructor usually finds this a much easier environment to teach in. The professor will occasionally slip on a ring for a second just to see if any of the students aren't wearing theirs.

Twisted Tournaments:



Some of the more eccentric thrill seekers will arrange for as many as a dozen gladiators to fight to the death in a small arena while each is wearing a Ring of Mutual Exclusion. Each combatant is unable to see his opponents or even feel them until, by randomly swinging his sword, he finally draws blood. An archer is usually hired to wear a ring and oversee the combat. If a contender should remove his ring, he would instantly become veiwable by the archer and subsequently shot until he died. Such tournaments often attract a large bidding competition.

Easter Egg Hunt:



During a race or scavenger hunt, the overseer will often require the competitors to wear Rings of Mutual Exclusion to provide a little more viewing pleasure. Racers will often run into each other and fall to the ground without feeling the collision. The resulting humor is often very gratifying. In a scavenger hunt, one seeker could be reaching for an item only to have it disappear in front of his eyes when another seeker grabs it first.

Silent Accusers:



Clever judges use Rings of Mutual Exclusion to allow all of the witnesses and suspected felons into the same room without them hearing each other. A guilty criminal usually becomes very nervous when the judge asks a potentially convicting question and the answer given is completely unheard. The guilty often break down and confess when witnesses don't have anything useful to say. The tension it creates is a very useful tool.
