When blessed and tied with an iron nail at the center, the stone can detect the presence of fey creatures and fairy paths, as well as shapechangers such as lycanthropes.

People who find these are supposed to be favored of Diana. :) Maybe you have a witchy calling you're neglecting. Go to Comment

Okay, don't know why, but this item and replies intrigued me to the point of looking hard for something, specifically Doreen Valiente's ABC of Witchcraft (which is awesome, highly recommended, if only for gaming ideas.)

Holed stones, sometimes called Holey Stones or Hag Stones (see below), seen as a feminine symbol/birth portal, so representing life and good luck. Called Hag stones because they are reputed to protect against witch's spells. A holed stone hung at the head of a bed wards off the Night Mare, that is, a witch or hag sitting on the stomach of the afflicted (insert your succubus/incubus/astrally attacking witch/changeling, what have you, awesome beginnings). Also supposed to prevent witches from riding horses, which is why these stones were often tied to a stable key. Looking through it can reveal fairies under certain conditions (I'm guessing dawn, dusk, on a threshold, at the water's edge, on certain holy days and/or places, and other liminal borders and places.) As mentioned above, finding a holed stone reveals the favor of Diana (or some other goddess in your setting) and that one should pick it up and thank the spirit that led to it (perhaps facing some foul consequence for not doing it.)

So, yeah, a whole pile of plot hooks and sympathies. Hope that helps. Go to Comment

I'll give it a high vote because of its simplicity yet I and others already can see uses for it in their game. Bump for justice. Go to Comment

A good camping-place with something extra: a gallows with a hangman, reduced mostly to bones and a few rags. It marrily hovers in the wind. Any manipulation will make it fall apart. An excellent camping place, except for the midnight hours, when ghosts of those executed haunt here. Some wail for their crimes, some re-live their execution over and over, some want to have a talk, and still some others want to scare the Living for fun.
