This brilliant green jade button has intricate runes inscribed into it. When tossed onto the ground a small, green kobold will appear armed with a club and attack any enemies of the button-bearer. Go to Comment
This small, dull-grey pewter button is fairly heavy normally, but 5 seconds after it is activated, it's weight increases to about 100lbs. No change in the buttons size occurs. It functions well to hold items down, or suddenly impede someone should the button be slipped into a pack or boot before activation. Go to Comment
This brown, leathery button has two possible uses: When put into a pot of boiling water, it will produce enough gruel to feed four persons for a day. It is, however, rather bad tasting. If only a little water is used, then the resulting substance is instead usable as a very strong hide glue. Go to Comment
Grezvelch was a cat-formed demon familiar to a dark mage, and when the mage fell terminally ill, dragged his shrieking soul to hell. He came back to begin working on the mage's wife.
The Widow does not know this, but is visited by illusions of her husband in torment. Grezvelch is trying to force the old lady into suicide and grab her soul too. His backup plan is framing her as a witch. Go to Comment
Then that requirement needs placed in the main submission preamble. I did not make this uber short because I was lazy. The ad was meant to provoke the question of Why was the tomb never used? Perhaps the would-be occupant disappeared, became immortal, etc.
Several other of the submissions are easily as abstract as this one, perhaps more evokative, but have no obvious begin/middle/end. Go to Comment
Atrimis the sage is conducting geneology research and recently discovered an old, abandoned graveyard on the grounds of a large manor. He suspects that many of the gravestones will help him complete his research. However, it is occupied by various undead. It is located outside of the jurisdiction of any town, and the local nobility could not be bothered to help. Can you? Go to Comment
Asclepius' flies are similar in size to the ordinary housefly, but they are white, with crimson eyes (ugly little creatures). Unlike most flies, however, they are not diseased, in fact their remarkable immune system contains agents which tackle even human illnesses. This is the source of their white colouring also. The standard technique for capturing them, to use their juices, is to tempt one onto the palm of one's hand and then to quickly wring your palms, then rub the mush onto the afflicted area. This is not for the squeamish, but has definite healing possibilities.
