Collar of grooming: Hounds are particularly popular among Throntian nobles, and this collar was designed with their owners in mind. Any dog or cat that dons a collar of grooming has its fur magically combed and cleaned at the moment it is messed. the collar also promotes the growth of fur ina balding patches and trims hair to the current standards for dog or cat shows. a seperate version of this, the bracelet of grooming, is often placed on messy children.

*Sigh* if only we had a system that functions perfectly with real-world physics, whether or not we do though, Anteaus is right on this one, that's a speedy boat!
You'd still need something producing constant noise even if it's just wind, and a silence spell could really turn the tide if two of these boats were engaged. Go to Comment
I agree with Dragon Lord on this one, alchemy at its finest.
It would be funny to see though, convincing a troll to part with this flesh of his, then using it in battle against him to obtain more.
A society with very powerful members could even engage in "Troll farming." Go to Comment
This post has a lot of promise, but I think it's a little too straight to the point.
Take, for example, her dead daughter. There is no mystery to the way Princess Chrysta is presented; just a missed opportunity to lead up to the reveal. You could try first establishing her presence, then delving more deeply into the relationship between the two, then revealing towards the end of the post that Chrysta is in fact dead. Instead however, the whole thing is revealed immediately, and Chrysta consequently seems almost like an afterthought. The narrative in general has a sort of "just the facts, ma'am," kind of style.
Ultimately this is a solid, clever post, it just suffers in its presentation. I'm giving it a 3.5, but I honestly think this post could be a solid 5 if you polished it enough and expanded just a little. Go to Comment
I have problems.
Halow's eve: Crazy twisted Necromancer solidifies Melkesjokolyde and gives it to children. Town overrun with toddler zombies. (S)he then reanimate all the corpses (both the children and their newly slaughtered parents,) and sends them forth to bring him/her new bodies. come next year, (s)he hides his/her minions and starts on another town, repeats this until a significant army is built up, then conquers the world, and posiibly even the multiverse...

Forsht Bligo is a dwarf who loves the taste of blood. He's become quite the connoisseur over the years. Pigs blood, sheeps blood, cow's blood, if it's red and warm, Forsht considers it a delicacy. The fresher and hotter the better. Forsht will often sneak up on cattle, prick them with his dagger, and catch the flowing blood in his orc-skull drinking cup. His life goal is to taste the blood of every living animal. Although he has not yet sampled humanoid blood, he is not averse to doing so if the right opportunity presents itself. He is not particularly unpleasant if approached and can be easily befriended. Its just that he simply can't get enough of the "Juice of Life", as he calls it. Forsht's troubles come in the form of frightened and angry villagers who have proclaimed the misunderstood dwarf a vampire. Since Forsht is amused by this, he does little to dissuade anyone. This will lead to some dicey situations for Forsht in the near future.
