This large-brimmed man's hat is made of grey felt. The hat turns a greenish color when or if the wearer's spouse or ladyfriend is unfaithful. Whereas a kiss would give the cap a greenish hue, an out-and-out affair would render the cap a brilliant green color.
Favored by the jealous husband type, the number of illicit affairs in town has drastically plummeted since the cap's inception. Go to Comment
Looks promising, but there are a number of grammatical errors and run-on sentences that make it rather difficult to read and understand. Sounds like you've done a lot of work and revising on this already, but could you give it one more go-over and clean up the grammar a bit? I'd hate to see the grammar flaws detract from an otherwise promising submission. Go to Comment
I'm not really into futuristic campaigns, but I got into this. I'm probably not the bets judge for this, but I thought it was well-written, descriptive, and quite usable. Leaves openings for more to come. Aside from one or two minor run-on sentences, I thought it was really well done! 4.5/5 Go to Comment
You had me at the title. Silly, funny, and it would actually throw a lot of PCs for quite a loop. ("I don't get it; the damn stick radiates magic, its gotta light somehow...") Not a powerful item, but enterprising PCs could find a use. Very cute; I might actually try to use one of these.
"The demon hits me with his fire blast? I'm holding the stick we found; that's gotta give me protection, right"
"Sure; although the rest of you is incinerated, your hand is unscathed as it lies in the ashes that were once your character." Go to Comment
Initially, I thought "meh", but then i read the last line. Nice twist! I can see PCs get used to using this for disposal of evidence, when a couple months down the line they get a surprise visit.
Incidentally, a number of years ago there was a similar item; manufactured by a group of thieves, they distributed these "bags of holding" which then periodically dumped their contents to the thieves' den. Worked well until an angry sack owner found thier way to the den by hopping in the sack himself. Go to Comment
Thanks for the feedback; I haven't tried this on my own players yet, so was concerned whether this is a common schtick. Sounds like people have seen something like this before, but not enough so that when my PCs initially bump up against it they'll say "Oh, one of THOSE. We know how to get around that." Go to Comment
Not bad at all. I can see uses for this as a guide or resource. Might be useful as a "red herring" as well. This would be fun to use on the PCs when they set up camp and bed down for the night. "Who's on watch? Okay, you suddenly hear a loud, creaking noise that sounds almost like a yawn, but far too loud and too deep to be anything human. It sounds like it's coming from the direction of that odd-shaped waterfall you passed earlier." Go to Comment
Some good points; I can't help but think that this is one of many symptoms of a society that is finding it harder and harder to get "unplugged". As you point out, we are constantly bombarded by input from video games, television, internet, cell phones, and even ipods. Seems tht whenever anyone has a spare minute, they find some way to surround themselves by noise or "plug in". I can't help but think to myself that this overabundance of input cannot be good for us. Our children can't seem to concentrate, learning disabilities and obesity are on the rise, and for the first time ever our life expectancy is on the decline. Don't know whether there is a correlation here, but when we are spoon-fed our thoughts and entertainment, that can't help. Go to Comment
You've probebly heard of the real Thomas Hopkins, Witchfinder-General, who hunted down and hanged suspected "witches". What if there was a world/realm where magic was normal, and it was the non-witches and non-wizards who were hunted down and hanged as inferior beings?
