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

This hurts. I really don't need more golems. Unique constructs? Maybe. But this is a bad idea done well. You provided a bit of a twist on normal golems with the asphalt throwing attack and the Helm of the Tar-Pits. Overall, this is not bad. Just... more golems make me feel icky. Go to Comment

Well, I think if you let the lil ones created by the Helm to walk for a while they might leave paved paths... I'm not sure if that was the intention or not, but thats what it made me think of. Go to Comment

The 6ft tall fighting mantis that grows out of a token is cool. But.. It's basically a generic summoning token. It's been done with many other creatures with many other uses besides fighting. It's a good solid idea with a good back story though. So.. 3 for the idea and uniqueness of the mantis and +1 for the background. So: 4. Go to Comment

Railus, just so you know... Next time you run a game: It is my Quest to find Cedir, kill him, and take the whip for my own! I will do everything within my power to acquire this whip and use it to be the best murderer ever. Wooohoo! So be prepared with stats and such for this Cedir fellow. *Pieh prays to Double G that he wont be killed by this whip, ever...* I do hope to bond it to myself. Wait! Better yet: Can I be Cedir? And create the whip myself? And then go on a rampage and kill all the good guys? Just a thought... >:-D Go to Comment

I thought it seemed fairly obvious that the items in question were unique... Especially this one. And recently realizing I was already the victim of this item once; I must say it is powerful in the wrong hands (Cedir's hands). and it could make an interesting quest to figure out how to stop this crazy assassin.

I like it, reminds me of something I can't quite remember... maybe a Goosebumps book I read in the days of old. Carnival of Terror? Horror? Evil? I can't remember, but this is a good write-up. Keep 'em coming and don't get discouraged. Go to Comment

I like this idea. A Godly gift that will not serve the evil. And.. INSECTS! Its powers seem a little limited for a Godly gift, but it works and makes sense. What God of Good doesn't want its followers to make their own way in the world? I'm not sure what else to say about it other than: Good Job! I especially like the Pied Piper idea. I can imagine some not-so-good PC using the staff to draw the insects away and being chased out of town by them. Ha-HA! GG! Go to Comment

Great twist. The writing was a big shaky and the second skeletons from ceiling puzzle does require you to bust a very large amount of skulls. I get a very video game vibe from this. It doesn't feel like your typical fantasy adventure, it's more like something you would find with a certain mask on. Not bad at all. I might have to use it in some form or another.

Ill withhold my vote untill you fix some of the typos, like i know its suppose to have dots before "a vampire" at the end. And it says "worn.)rnThe" in the second to last paragraph. But it looks solid and its a good idea. I understand you were tried, having been up since 4am before writing this. So I'm sure it will slide by. I don't know quite what to say, I don't usually comment on items like this, but I'm making an exception for you Railus. I know you have tons of ideas in that head of yours now submit some more! w00t!

Constitution is hardly a d20 term, it simply means your stat or ability governing health. Which i think can be understood in most systems. I think this is a good idea, and deserves more than a 3. I'm giving it a 4. I'm not sure what you play Val, but try to remember that we do accept people of all roleplaying backgrounds, don't be a 20 hater. But I agree that the focus should have been more on the vampire making rather than the chainmail (I think that's what you were trying to say). Go to Comment

I think it's ok for this item to seem a little overpowered since there are only 3 in existance and it can turn you into a vampire. Just a thought... Go to Comment

Dwarves of the Walrus Totem

       By: Murometz

Far to the north amidst the endless ice-flows it is rumored that a dwarven Walrus Totem clan exists. These rumors have been unsubstantiated to date, unless the dwarven sage Glurt Goblinguts is to be believed. He claims to once having encountered a troupe of huge dwarves, each standing a beard’s length higher than the tallest known dwarf. These dwarven “giants”, their hairy chins crusted with frozen shards of ice and dirt, hauled gargantuan yellowed horns or tusks upon their wide shoulders, and their helms, likewise, sported massive, down-ward pointing tusk-horns. Glurt Goblinguts later speculated that the impressive size of these dwarves was most likely due to their arctic diets, almost exclusively fat-based.
