A great piece of flavour for the working of magic/teleportation. Go to Comment
Fresh Water Giving Pearl
Items  (Jewelry)   (Magical)
Pariah's comment on 2005-10-29 03:20 PM
Yeah, I like this item too. It is nice and not world shattering when theres only one or two of them. 4/5 for coolness.

I kinda like the fact that it stops giving water after about three days worth of water. It is a welcome refreshment from al the cups of unending water.

One question, would one be able to tell this apart from a normal pearl, and if not then wouldn't all pearl be, if not venerated, at least respected by the clergy? Go to Comment

I'm American, and do a lot of camping. To 'survive' you need about 2 liters, a gallon has a bit less than 4. In temperate climate you could last about a week off of one of these. However, if you are traveling more than 10 mi(16 km) a day you're going to need more than 2 liters. Thats just from experiance though, I know people who can get by on 3/4 of that, and others that need twice that to keep going. Go to Comment
True-Silver Tray
Items  (Home/ Personal)   (Magical)
Pariah's comment on 2005-10-23 08:01 AM
Good idea, One question though. You said that the owner can see the illusions, but also that to see illusions you needed to know and understand what this tray is/does. Does that mean that the owner needs to know this also or not?

Other than that, good item. 4/5 Go to Comment

Pariah's comment on 2006-01-10 07:27 PM
Good solid idea. And speaking of Africa, there is a place in said continent that the shore is covered in diamonds. Needless to say the gov't/private industries have limited access to this beach to keep diamonds in a relative scarctiy so that they don't devalue. (It's not really COVERED but has a large amount and I'm sure you got the idea) Go to Comment

Pariah's comment on 2005-10-21 06:58 PM
I like it, its very interesting.

5 for being so totally out there and still making sense. I could see someone invent this.

On a side note, if it did get out to the public you could expect a cheaper or one with a lessened side effect in less than 5 yrs. Go to Comment

Wow, THAT'S where the indefatiguable armies of south get all of their food. I salute your genuis Moon.

Great place, and it could be used as the object of a quest. You get employed by the opposing army to get rid of the enemy's food. Go to Comment

That and I don't think that Hardtack burns too well, you'd have to get in and get the stuff soaked after you tourched the fields and let it rot. Or you could let the worms have at it, but that would only add protien to the soilders diets so I don't think that would quite stop the army, maybe keep them healty but... Go to Comment

Pariah's comment on 2005-10-06 02:32 PM
I like him. He's a great character wih a great backstory. The description you gave sounded an awful lot like the descriptions the neigbors give after the serial killer next door is found out. Go to Comment

Pariah's comment on 2005-10-04 02:46 PM
Good idea, but I agree with cheka, it could use some more explaining. An idea on where it went, maybe when the wizard enchanted it he made it so that he orb would teleport to his place of birth/college/other importent place. Go to Comment

Ring of Opposites
Items  (Jewelry)   (Magical)
Pariah's comment on 2005-10-02 06:36 PM
4/5 Great item. All of the nitpicks I have with it have already been covered. So on to the idea mill.

You could make instant civil war in one of your enemies realms by mass producing these and then "accidentally" having a box fall out of the back of a wagon in the middle of the city. Of couse you'd have to make sure you left town REALLY fast or you'd die too.

Or you could get a sneaky theif to replace the princes wedding ring with a disguised one of these. Put the Diamond/Ruby/Precious Gem over the mirror and switch the two. Boy would that cause some inter-kingdom problems when the king's only son, half of his entourage, and the princess's father, were brutally murdered as soon as the prince said his vows.

See how much havok people can have with something that a mage made innocently trying to cure his daughter of insanity. Almost makes you wonder why my PCs still try on every ring that I give to them. But it does explain the fact that they are missing half of their fingers on their left hand. Go to Comment

Yummy like pie. I love this, it'll fit well into my world where many people seem to find happiness in slaughter. Maybe give it to my lawful pain in the butt palidin, see how long he can stand up to the temptation.

What would happen if Jack himself put it on though? Would he decide to just go downtown and kill as many people at once as he could before he got taken down or what? Go to Comment

I like him, great way to explain how the locals came to be so wretched without a dictator sitting over them demanding all their crops or the like. Go to Comment

I'm going to have to ask the same question as manfred, why? Is it an evil sorceror at work, and if it is, why didn't he have them play with the kids instead of the parents. Or is it the god of trickery, looking for another cheap laugh, I could almost see that. I don't know, it just seems to be missing a purpose.

3/5 - It's good, but could use a bit of refining. Go to Comment

It streches credibility everyonce in a while, but not any more than your average movie. Cash is payable in banknotes, with no more than 5 in a series. Go to Comment
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Combat)
Pariah's comment on 2006-04-26 03:46 PM
Maybe it's heated enough so that the bolt spreads out on contact with the target. So while it may cauterize the wound on entry it would still provide a rather larger hole than a standard crossbow bolt. And as to your comment about firey ordinance being used in battle causing as much damage to friend as foe, so does anything that deals damage remotely. Friendly fire isn't. This applies as much for cold crossbow bolts as warm/hot ones. Go to Comment

Yeah, makes me think of poor Gollum too. It was the 'They Lies Master' that did it for me.

Good Job Go to Comment
