The Folding Sword
This rare thin bladed rapier has interesting ability to fold lengthwise without breaking many times and remain almost paper thin. Very light, almost too light to wield, it requires special training to use properly but it the trademark weapon of the Origami Assassins.

The Tattoo Dagger
This long pointy dagger, when pressed to the flesh and with the proper command word, will merge with your skin and appear as a black dagger silhouette.

Spring-Knife Boot
This nom-magical boot, usually paired with another boot (just so it looks like you're wearing a normal pair of boots), contains a spring loaded blade that pops out near the toe when you step down a cetain way or push a button on the side of the boot. Sometimes people even wear two Spring-Knife Boots... However, this is not neccesary as you can only attack with one foot at a time... normally... Go to Comment

War Fan
This delicate looking oreiental fan actually houses razorsharp steel tips that are effective for close range comabt or throwing (in a pinch). They are often used by in a beatiful dance of blood and death.

Sword Cane/Umbrella
Pretty self-explanatory. A true classic. A simple blade hidden inside an umbrella or cane.

Banjo Blade
Classic spring-loaded bayonet blade on the end of an instrument, typically a string instrument with a neck and an extra string. When the extra string is plucked, a blade will stick out, variations include firing darts or squirting acid. Go to Comment

Darn, I don't really know. One of those mysteries of life. I suppose it could be because Souls are the prime ingredient in life, and the prime lifeform is humanoids. So it would really mean that Humans have a vaguely soul-like shape. And Beasts are just an mutations of the human soul. Go to Comment

I would say it's a good first sub. Only minor grammatical errors, the format isn't bad. But it is short and seems like its powers are that of a generic item, but it has the unique item background. Perhaps this is the first of many? Go to Comment

The red-and-white stripes make this somewhat comical, a blatant North Pole like you might see on a holiday greeting card. The rest of the idea is also interesting and, as others have pointed out, even good enough that an expansion would be nice and interesting to read. Good idea, can definitely not have enough winter holiday submissions.

The Box That Can Not Be Opened
I used this a long time ago, when a was a fledgling roleplayer. I had a handfull of an adventure going and this was just part of the fun. It was so long ago that I don't remember how the PCs got it, but I recall several failed attempts to open in. Eventually they met up with a Lesser Diety with the power to open it, and he did. But just smiled, closed it, and handed it back. I never got to do anything really cool with it. Drove my player's crazy untill the The Great Invasion from the Fey Realm turned everything on its head... But I loved it! Go to Comment

Whoooo-Boy! That was incredible. I only had one gripe, and that was the seeming ease of which the players were described to be captured. It honestly felt like a little bit of a railroad, but I'm sure none of my players would mind given the amazing story this tells. I fear to run it, not for my soul or sanity, bit I do not think I possess the skills to execute it properly and do it justice.

A Google search for Heedra reveals a few things:

"Heedra was an Imperial Moff who governed Baxel Sector, which was located in the Outer Rim Territories, during the height of the Galactic Civil War." - From Wookieepedia, a Star Wars Wiki.

Heedra = Hindi for "neither male nor female"

And... There are 1 people with the name Heedra Perezchica in Texas.

Oh yeah, let's not forget Captain Penguins obvious inspiration -


Powerful, biologically-engineered warriors (possibly with mechanical additions) from before the Seven Days of Fire. While not capable of destruction on as vast a scale as the God Warriors, they are far more numerous and easier to maintain. Heedra are extremely strong and difficult to kill; they can only be killed by destroying their "core", apparently located in the head just behind the uppermost of their three eyes, or blasting a Heedra into pieces. The cloned bodies of the Dorok Holy Emperor and the Master of the Garden are also referred to as Heedra, suggesting the name may in fact be a catch-all term for genetically engineered humanoids.

Yes, I have. Well... the opening credits. Something about skateboards and Mayan temples. I know they featured a clip from it in the Malcolm in the Middle opening credits.

I could be mistaken. I am pulling this knowledge from an ancient part of my memory that involves a VHS tape stolen from the Mystery Train. Skateboard and Mayan temples, that's all I need to know. Go to Comment

Not very original, yet a fun was to make a soul sucking blade. I guess you could always stab someone else in the heart, right?

76. Candle of Sobering
A thick scented candle that sobers and calms those who bask in it's glow. Works for about one table at a time, but might not affect everyone. Sometimes used secretly by Bartenders to prevent fights in their bars. They have also be purchased by men who have work in the moring, or wives who have had one-too-many and don't want their husbands to know. A nice smelling, and not very suspicious, way of sobering up, or just relaxing, a rowdy group.

Pieh's comment on 2008-06-13 02:13 PM
I love it! Only one line bothered me:
"all so that the one he hunts might make a mistake"

Actually, it didnt bother me as much as make me want to know more about his ultimate goals. Reading this line, I assumed that some sort of rival, ancient betrayal, or "Target" was coming. But.. it didn't come.

Also, You never mentioned the Piemaster as being cabable of magic. Yet he is able to keep a brilliant sorceress trapped in an animal form?

Still, I love it: 4.5 and a HoH! Go to Comment

Very good comeback post, stick around for a while and create great things. I like this line: "The PC's chance upon the lost diary of Nur-Uglur's lost diary." You might want to revise it a little, and I noticed 1 or 2 minor spelling errors but nothing that subtracted from the readability at all. So, Good Job! Looking forward to more. Go to Comment

Mysterious Package of Infinite Packaging
Unwrap the Chaos
This massive box-like object is wrapped in brown paper, you tear off the brown paper to reveal more wrapping paper... and more wrapping paper, until it is quite obvious that there is no end to the wrapping paper. That's when you finally reach the prize. You tear off a chunk of paper to reveal foam packaging peanuts. An endless supply of foam packaging peanuts. You can dig and dig, the room will never get messy, and you will never get to the bottom. Jump inside and you will discover the Land of Peanuts. It's like heaven, for peanuts, but you won't know that because you will be surrounded by foam packing peanuts. This is where all the foam packing peanuts in our mortal world come from. Go to Comment

What if when a character died and the price to bring him back into the world was to allow an evil or good version to be placed in the world with the sole purpose of killing the character that just got its life back? The copycat character would die apon completeing his mission.....or would he?
