The submission has some errors where it seems spellcheck turned one word into another. I think this works just fine as a stand alone plot and I think the variety of options are clever and interesting. Based on the comments, however, it appears I am getting more of a polished product than the previous readers.

I think the greatest flaw in the submission can be seen in the plot hooks, only the first one really is a plot hook and it does not involve the horses specifically. The second one is only a choice, which once made either eliminates the horse from the equation or makes the getaway too easy. The village mascot idea is neat, but it is a complication and not an actual plot. The characters would need a reason to remove the protection of the horse from this field.

This has such potential. The idea of lawmen abusing the item, a society that is entirely accepting of the dead wandering around, moral issues of whether this is inhumane since their free will is stripped. And my personal favorite:

*cleric walks into a town full of zombies* 

"AAAAHHH!" *Greater Turn Undead*

"Noooo! without those laborers we're going to starve this winter! You fool you've killed us all!"

I'm with Ria, the real question is does its creation cause any lasting side effects? " It will burn like the fires of Hell when you pee," made me laugh aloud.

Some of these are very solid concepts. The drug ones seem like fun, and I cannot wait to hear the players "What do you mean the message we need is in a 10,000 piece puzzle?"

This is so brilliant I want to find a way to put it in my (rather misogynistic) game world. I just love how it is so small and simple but has such broad ramifications.

I vote for wobblegoo because I like the word wobble. I also like how one of the first instincts testers had was to eat it. Unfortunately this seems like one of those things that if handed to a player would result in it getting used at every opportunity, even when not appropriate. Go to Comment

I think this is a really cute look a clockworks, typically I think of them as something alien rather than human which leads to a sort of prometheous effect on the creator. Forbidden knowledge, Frankenstein, tragedy, all that.

PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2011-07-27 03:20 PM

I have a soft spot for techromancy, and this could have great applications in a steampunk game. "Oh no, we need this device to run and save the town! But it's infested with cog devils!" I don't know why I think of these little things as adorable, but I do. While they don't really need an origin story it would be nice if there were some theories.

This submission feels not only misleading but rather hollow. I prefer LINDA (looks interesting but never does anything) items to things that are overly malicious. Perhaps the wizard was a *ahem* blue mage? Tired of being mocked by his peers who looked down upon his work he created this spellbook so that any wizard who attempted to steal his work would slowly find themselves... coming around to his way of thinking. Subtly planting erotic images during combat, making erotic sounds at night to keep the party awake, mischief.

A simple item, a solid idea, a bit of history, but I think it's the introduction which really makes this submission special.

I wish the wisper was more reflective of the person it was in life. It doesn't seem to register with me that a bright, strong-willed wizard who devoted his life to educating the populace's legacy should be a fragment of undead that turns you into a gibbering mess.

I like to think of them as sort of wil-o-wisp looking, which makes them adorable. They could make for a bittersweet encounter in the forest.

30 Cheeses
Items  (Other)   (Non-Magical)
PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2013-03-21 12:36 AM

31 - Cheese of the Forest Pact

This cheese consists of a small hand-sized wheel wrapped in chestnut leaves. It is a soft deer cheese with a somewhat gooey and earthy outer rind and milder creamy center. While the flavor is complex and delicious it is only available in the fall when the druids emerge from the woods to trade with common folk and ensure the forest will remain undisturbed for another year. 

32 - Casu Marzu

Casu Marzu is considered to be a delicacy to some and spoiled food to others. Part way through ripening the top of the cheese is removed and maggots allowed to infest the cheese. As the maggots digest the cheese they deepen its flavor and give it an almost liquid texture. The cheese is then spread over bread, with live maggots wriggling and jumping off. It is best paired with a strong wine.
