An interesting item, though its very niche. It seems that it would best be provided by some NPC to assist in a very specific mission. Otherwise I would add a few more trollish bonuses to the item to have the PCs keep a hold on it. Go to Comment
The S'krae Lifeforms (Intelligent Species)
This is original! An NPC that comes in a bottle. I like this idea..
I wouldn't bother with the phylacteries. Its magic - no need to create a storage container for memories, and I think it unnecessarily complicates the core idea. If you must, perhaps it takes over a small portion of the pill-popper's own mind to store its memories, which could then potentially 'leak' into the user's own consciousness. Go to Comment
