"Keg of the Beast"

This is a very heavy keg, made of dark wood, kept behind the bar. No one is sure what is in this unlabeled keg. The barkeep is too afraid of what kind of foul brew might be lurking in this barrel. An ancient Lore Master has identified it as the Keg of the Beast. A mead packaged long ago with a live wild boar in the barrel with it. The boar has most likely died and partially melded with the mead, although once in a while patrons swear they see the keg rock a little. It is said that only a legendary hero can tap this keg and he who does so will be imbued with the strength, spirit, and wild ferocity of the boar within. In times of great need people flock from all over the lands to try to tap this keg, no one has yet succeded... Go to Comment

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. Go to Comment

Alchemy Blade
Cloudncali wrote in Unexpected Weapons
This items takes the form of a lead marble when not in use. But it has the power to turn into any type of sword that the wielder has seen,He just needs to "will it" and it will change.When it changes form it looks likes turns into liquid metal. Then it spreads into the shape of the blade the wielder wants. The only down side to this weapon is it always weights more then a normal weapon of that type would.

I think this fits here because (in my imagination) it could easily take the shape of a tankard or stein.

The Man stands up, holding a heavy metal tanlard, "Watch you tongue, or I'll cut it out," He says. Cut it? You think, with a tankard? Suddenly the tankard starts to liquefy and morph into a giant sword, the ale splashing upon the ground. Oh crap, you think this time. He smiles as if he can read your thoughts. Go to Comment

Fireball in a Bottle
WARNING: Hold away from face and others when opening! Use caution near oxygen.
A fine wine made from the Fire Grapes that grow on vines that sprout from cracks in hot desert rocks without logical reason. The wine is made in the manner of most others, except care much be taken when crushing the grapes because their pulpy insides expell gasses that burst into flames when exposed to air. Once bottles and properly aged, the wine is about as alchoholic as most wines, having the same effect with intense "booze burn" or face reddening. The flavor of the wine is fruity, with a little spice.

The thing that makes it suitable for this scroll is that the juices never stop slowly producing that explosive gas, the quanities are small per grape, but when you have a bottle of them liquefied and sitting for a while.. You don't want to open it too close to your face. It shoots a stream of fire when uncorked, and explodes if a burst if the bottle is shattered. It is packeged with liberal amounts of warning labels and is very popular at weddings. Go to Comment

I'm a tad confused about something: The description says green gives off the power of elemental evil. Yet, in the sub where it describes then different colors of Demon Jade it says it is elementally neutral. Am I missing something? Otherwise I like it and look forward to seeing some Demon Jade items. I might make one if you don't mind. Go to Comment

Nice, some good came out of poor Hucken Fyreb'lls. Honestly, I'm not sure why I didnt delete him... but I am glad he inspired this cool character Hucken actually had a long line of Gnomish fire slinging relative that never got mentioned: Tossin, Hurlin, Chucken, Lonchin.. you get the point. Maybe I shall update him to a worthy submission some day. I never was good with NPCs. Go to Comment

This was probably one of my first encounters with Shadowrun a few years ago and inspired me to buy the 4th Edition book when I found it. I have yet to play it, but I love the style this character represents. Good work.

Cool stuff. Reminds me of playing Cyberpunk 2020, as this is how I imagine a Solo full of tech to end up. I've only read a bit of Shadowrun, but it reeks of that as well. I'd say you did a good job.

Assassin Smokes:
Sixteen less-than-excellent cigars line this plain, old, ordinary wooden box. The cigars themselves radiat a faint magical aura. Each one bears a black band and seems to be, at best, poorly rolled.

In fact, these black band cigars are known as Assassin Smokes. Hidden inside by cheap illusion magic is a tiny needle magically poisoned to but anyone pricked by it to sleep. These cigars have two uses: One) when the top is cut and you forcefully blow into the cigar the needle will shoot out of the cigar much like it was a small blowgun, if goes about three-to-five feet before losing its course. Use number Two) If smoked normally the needle will be inhaled and thus poison the smoker. If the needle is somehow detected and removed the cigar can be smoked normally as if it were a cheap cigar.

The poison is typically a magically imbued sleeping poison but it can be of any other variety as the GM sees fit, sometimes a box contains different types of poisoned needles such as sleep, paralysis, minor numbing, headache and mild nausea causing, and occasionally outright death. Smoke 'em if you got 'em! Go to Comment

Fohg's Faulty Stoagies of Invisibility:
The Wizard Apprentice Fohg was a brilliant young lad, he knew many advanced magics beyond his age but his specialty was in smoke and mirrors tricks. Using simple illusion tricks he would astound crowds for profit. His teachers didnt like this, but he did it anyway. Fohg came up with a brilliant idea one day: He would do some enchanting on some cigars so they turned people invisible. Unfortunatly for adventurers, he never finished the magic on them.

These sixteen cigars made from tobacco grown in every small farming community have some odd properties. First of all, they turn the smoker invisible as long as the cigar is lit. As for a secondary effect, they also blind the smoker for as long as the cigar is lit. Not to mention that the smoke made by the cigars smells horrible and is still visisble despite the smoker being invisible.

You may wonder why cigars of invisibility would blind the intended user, yes? Well, this is because the Invisibility and Blindness spells are very similar untill near the end of their completion. So in an incomplete spell it would have the nearest two effects to what was suppose to happen. Make sense? I sure hope so.

These cigars will most likely be found sitting around, half-smoked, and completely abandoned. Go to Comment

This is really too much for me to comprehend, ever. I don't think there will ever be a time when I need this many worlds and/or planets, however, I do appreciate the greatness of this resource and all the work that has gone into it. Good job, everyone who has submitted to it.

Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?

I enjoyed this one. I was fun and fast paced, an easy read, and I feel inspired by it. Even if that is only inspired to try blowing something up in the near future.

I'm so confused by the changing terms though. From Big Sword, to Black Sword, to Broad Sword... is that purposely misleading, or was it just a really rushed jumble of ideas? I like them all, certainly not your best piece, but it is a good deal better than bad.

Rereading a little closer, I think I might understand.

Black Sword > Broad Sword > Big Sword? Is it a trickle down of sections within a whole that follow a confusingly similar naming pattern? I'm not complaining, I love that I have no idea what these names actually refer too because it makes it feel all the more foreign to me. If I could easily understand the power structure of a black ops mercenary team, I think it might lose some believability. Go to Comment

Also useful is to have a blank book or a random book. I was once asked to hand over a journal that the BBEG was looking for. I tossed the silly lackey a blank spell book. He grabbed it up and let me be on my way. Ha! I bet he got a thrashing from The Lord of Blades. Go to Comment

50)Laser Pointer/Sight/Light or "Mage Light"
Very useful for pointing things out from a distance or finding small object laying on the ground (like LEGOs!). In modern/future times they can make guards think someone is aiming a rifle at them, good if you cant afford the rifle. Or shine it in someone's eye! Go to Comment
