I think this is an excellent idea, though it depends upon your magic being loose enough to accept this. Some fictional (aren't they all) examples of circle use are so exacting as having a hair drop across a line is sufficient to blow the protection. With such standards, a carpet would be play Russian roulette with 5 rounds loaded.

For D&D though, or lower-stakes magic, I see this as perfectly fitting.

What's not to like on this one? :)

The 'posers' could be in fact a whole gaggle of The Lilitu, or there could be one of these in the troupe. Go to Comment

All the more reason to have _your_ magic items checked by a certified professional...

I could see the most jaded of murderers enjoying this item, for it would allow them to feel something where perhaps they no longer could normally.

But that would not stop them, no. Simply providing the exquisite sorrow that their cold heart could resist.

Really cool - with the various detriments listed make it perilous to rely upon.

I suppose it would be possible to carry more then one to help get around some of the issues, though that may be prohibitively expensive.

So keep spares bundled in lambskin until needed :)

An excellent, if sickening, sub. I think it draws a rather lot of hits to the site I'm afraid. Go to Comment

I agree that the description needs work. A simple description of the principle is an abrasive treadmill you cannot get off. Its rotating slowly, so no powersander effect. Go to Comment

An interesting magical plant. It being a fern is a somewhat odd choice, given they are not all that hardy, and their extreme surface area would make keeping warm require a great deal of energy.

Ardwals Focus

       By: valadaar

If it was a castle, it was the strangest one he had ever seen.

He of course saw the main tower - taller than anything he had seen outside of Stoneholt, the spire looked fragile and was topped by a glassed-in chamber.

The outer wall was so gently sloped that it would have only stopped a horde of hobbling old men, an able-bodied soldier could stride up to its crest with little effort. Within one saw a huge, nearly perfect bowl-shaped area with the base of the tower in the centre, covered in hundreds of mirrors.


This structure is a massive solar collector designed by the Wizard-King Aardwal in centuries past. He used the concentrated light in his investigations into the magic of light, and in the fashioning of flash crystals.
