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 -

Heedra

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.

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

The Box That Can Never Be Closed!

Once, long ago, there was a God of Mages known as Tehfayl. He was the God of the young bumbling adepts. He was quite powerful, untill banished from the Godly Realms for causing too much chaos and upsetting the natural balance of things. He was petty and lazy, and liked to use magic for everything.

Once he created this artifact, and possibly The Box That Can Not Be Opened as well, Tehfayl did not mean to create this box. He didn't even create the box itself, it was a gift from one of his worshippers. The worshipper placed the box at his feet. Tehfayl cast a simple Open/Close Object type spell, but... he kinda over did it... The Box sprung open, launching its contents (Rare spell ingredients and such) everywhere!

He was so embarrassed that he blasted the Box from his Godly Realm towards the unsuspecting world below. He has since departed out world, but his magic is still with us. This Box is a cursed artifact. It looks like a normal wooden box, put can not be kept closed, it will spring open at the worst of times. And, even worse, it infects other containers (such as backpacks and potion vials) that it comes close to.

Bruno's Temporal Nullifier

"Damnit, Edgar, you pull out that watch one more time and I'll-"
"You'll what?" *Looks at clock*
"That's it!"

Bruno then grabbed the elaborate timepiece. Yanked it, chain and all, from Edgar's pocket. Then proceeded to smash it into total disrepair with his size 14 leather boot.

"Bruno! That was a gift from my FATHER!"
"Well, just because this 'thing' is suppose to show up in- Oh SH*t, what is THAT?!"

The last that was ever seen of Bruno Gheerhardt and Edgar Tick-Tocker was a partially-melted size 14 leather boot with the face of a watch embedded in its heel.

Shape Smell - When an odor is just too strong to remove a Smellbinder can shape the gas particles of the smell into a more manageable form, or even into a bottle for future use/studying.

Transmute Gas to Solid - Much easier than the fabled Transmute Solid to Gas, this spell can be used to give a solid material form to a small portion of some scents. It would usually appear as a small cube of unattractive color that vaguely smells of its former self.

Transmute Solid to Gas - This Legendary Power of the Smellbinders can turn solid object into smells, effectivly destroying them. It is not known if this awesome power can be used on the living. Go to Comment

Good one! Despite being mildly influential to this piece, I had never read it. That has been corrected. This would be a perfect place to recruit Smellbinder lackeys. Go to Comment
