Wand of Illusory Sound

valadaar's comment on 2007-02-05 11:24 AM
A useful little item.

On sentance needs to be chopped up a little or restructured:

The sound cannot be located simply because it is an illusion and is entirely in the person's head, part of the mild insanity caused by such an unnerving sound can cause the target to think he has an idea as to the direction of the sound only to prove him incorrect (which can be unnerving).

Otherwise, useful and logical. Go to Comment

This is a pretty nifty group - I like the idea of these doom-mongers.

Sentries Stogies

Recognizing the threat that cigars present to sentries everywhere - giving away their position when lit, ruining nightvision by their flare, and signaling others by their smell.

These special stogies are enchanted to provide to the user the illusion of smell, and light, but in reality the effects are not perceived by those not smoking them. They are ignited simply by puffing on them but again no flare is visible to anyone except the user.

They are still burning, but very dimly. They do radiate heat which may still give the user away. Go to Comment

Nice - Not overpowering and has a definite cool factor!

Well done! Go to Comment

Good semi-solid Island.

Since they tolerate salt water they would be extremely useful to some people. Someone might even use them for desalination purposes :) Go to Comment

An interesting submission - much better then a simple potion of the same powers.

My first comment is that it needs spellchecked. There are enough problems to prevent me from objectively assessing the content itself.

Second would be with some of the sentence structures - you may wish, as MoonHunter often recommends, reading it aloud to yourself to see how the sentences flow. Go to Comment

I can't help but be reminded of Vulcans - not that there is anything wrong with that. In this case we have a half-elf very much like Spock during Pon Faarsp.

Post is much better then it started, but it still needs a bit of work. Go to Comment

Ring of Disappearance

valadaar's comment on 2007-01-30 03:52 PM
As to seperate dimensions or a single one, I didn't think about that, but one seems logical to me.

The 'body' would be in an odd state - being fire,earth and water - basically a 'Caloric' elemental, but it would lack any 'spirit' to animate it. I suppose an evil spirit could poach the Caloric body, again trapping the ring user in it's semi air form.


From Theory of Elements
..
Thirdly come the four tertiary elements, the great fluids that permeate all things. These are each formed by the fusion, in equal parts, of the quintessence of three primary elements. They are Caloric (Earth, Water, Fire), Ether (Air, Water, Fire), Phlogiston (Fire, Earth, Air) and Vital Essence or Vitality (Water, Earth, Air).
..


It is built with the concepts discussed in Ians' Theory of Elements in mind or more specifically, the rebuttal I added to his sub insisting that Spirit is indeed a pure element, and not a combination of the four (which, by the way, this ring would prove by it's existance :) ) Go to Comment

Other notes:

Even stuck in 'ghost' form, they retain about 25% of their strength and may be able to communicate their fate to others, though they are little more then a weak air elemental. Depending on the magic available in the campaign, there may be spells to undo the effect.

Sages or wizards highly skilled in Elemental magic may be able to detect the design flaw if they research the ring.

A simple plot idea could be the attempt to reunit someone who has been diselementized (new word?) - maybe even the ring's original creator. Go to Comment

It is dreadfully rude to carry a fishknife whilst talking to a Merman or Mermaid, as they think of them as we would think of thumbscrews or other torture devices.
