This, and the linked Far Tragin, are great submissions. I especially love the mystery of the magic stone, which could be any number of things, and the honorable Frost Giants. I can use this with very few variations. Solid stuff. Go to Comment
Nice job Agar!
This nasty, stinky, slimy stick in a beautiful thing. Such a story could only be spawned from the mind or a genius or a very gasseous person. I dont know which it was and i dont care because im gonna have so much fun with it... Go to Comment
This is the kinda thing i love to see. An item that will have the PCs confused as a duck in an airplane for hours and even days after the game stops. It also has uses as a adventure hook (Ex. This common man comes to the PCs asking for help). Good job you truly deserve a cookie. Go to Comment
I had a good time using this item. My players carried it around for a long time after recieving it as a divine gift, they actually encountered a god at one point and handed him the box to see if he could open it. He did, looked inside, chuckled a little, then closed it and handed it back. They never found out it was empty (in game). So much fun, many thanks. Go to Comment
Wow, I gave this a HoH but it seems I never voted... anyway, I came back here because this gave me an idea: 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.
Ok. So a guy kills a dragon with little tiny throwing knivesand gets horrible messed up in the process. He then hauls his bleeding ass to the nearest town that just so happens to have a mighty spellcaster in it (How else could they have been enchanted in this way?). How do you live for months when your mortally wounded? How far away was this town if the dragon was detroying towns "faster than lightning strikes" (and i assume the dragon would attack all nearby tows first)? Why was the dragon attacking? Was is bored? Dragons arent mindless destroyers, they attack for a reason (as far as I know anyway). This item makes little to no sense in a realistic light. If you fixed it it might be better.
P.S. - HOW THE HELL TO YOU CARVE A DRAGONS SKULL WITH A SHURIKEN? Go to Comment
Not a bad idea. Definetly needs some tweaking though. It would kind of fun if instead of drinking the potion you had to splash some on the person or people you wanted to disregard you so that you couldent use it to easily. Maybe even decrease the duration of this item to about 2 to 4 hours. Overall it seems like just something else to add to the ever expanding (not to mention completely scattered about)list of fun little items for rouges and theives to use to mess with decent folk. Not that thats a bad thing. Good job. (I just though of this, what if the magic only worked because it gets in the targets eyes and magically blurs thier vision so you look like someone else that they know but have no need to pay attention to.Oh my so much potential.)

Good job, its a great item and is probably very desirable so it could even change the way that thieves go about stealing things if it became popular. Maybe it could be inteligent as well so i knew how to get its new "owner" in the most trouble or even attack the thief for the old owner and give directions to someone who finds it on how to get back to its not so worried owner. That might be overdoing it... but oh well. Good job. Go to Comment
I appreciate all your comments seeing as how I'm new to the site and always open to tips that can help me out... And yes i realized this was not a Dnd speficic site and i would have used terms to apply it to other games but i was a) half asleep and b) i havent played many other rpgs, Ive played Dnd and a little Palladium so i apologize for any confusion caused by my lack of thought. Thank you all for your support and critisism, it helps me out alot. Any tips on what a good description could be? I also meant to put in a duration but forgot. Go to Comment
It was pretty much my first submission... I guess I could revisit it. Back then there just wasn't as many high quality submissions, so stuff like this got pretty good votes.
As for the 'rock jacket.' I'm sorry you didn't like it, I think a 1 is a little harsh, but I can live with it. I'd just like to thank you for going out of your way to see what else I could do. Go to Comment
Thanks for you feedback. You can use this however you want, I was just trying to throw an idead out there for fellow Gms to use. I see now that i should have put alittle more thought into it... Ill be more careful in the future. Thanks. Go to Comment
Faerie foods with unusual effects. Like faerie sausages that turn the eaters into wiener dogs, faerie wines that make the drinker whiny, etc. There's a table in Palladium Fantasy RPG which has a table of ideas.
