Barrenfield Acorns

Perhaps it is nothing to do with roots. Real oaks count on squirrels to spread their acorns, so at first the squirrels happly spread the acorns. However, since they are not nutritious they eventually all starve. Once there are no squirrels nearby, the spreading stops unless happenstance - water, humans, spreads one to where squirrels can again carry out their duty:) Go to Comment

Interestingly, it has the feel of the really old Arthur tales, both good and bad, light on the whys. Some of the things Merlin did not seem to make sense with what was described in the tale.

So, it was a nice sword that resisted being turned to junk by the Wizard, and then to stop the battle (since it would I guess cause lots of collateral damage?) this third party sucked himself, the knight and the evil wizard into the blade?

Now the blade will draw energy to the trapped Evil Wizard, while the 'good' wizard will try and stop this by strengthening the wielder's tie to the weapon?

HOH can be put by anyone who wants to and earned the right to do so. We might not agree, so we can vote down if we like. I don't think this is challenge worthy. Low votes, sure.

I think this sub may not be perfect, but it is good enough not to be buried by bad votes.

I had wondered about the 'curse' - I went over the text and saw nothing that said the wielder was effected, only the target.

Since the man was old, him dying did not seem untoward, but clarification would be nice ("Died naturally in his sleep, a satisfied smile accross his face..."),etc. Go to Comment

valadaar's comment on 2013-06-09 10:14 PM
A great mythic piece. As for the power of the item the description is suitably vague as to its effects as to render that argument somewhat overwrought - the GM can easily tune it.

Given many of the other posts which get beaten on, this one is not so bad, and I like some of the description.

"While not bearing the elaborate filigrees or meticulously cut gemwork of the lavish court-swords favored by aristocrats, the Steel Cathexis is an ostentatious weapon."

Basically, I agree with Moonhunter on this one. Gasp. Go to Comment

I concur with the comments here. Its not awful, but it also does not really bring anything to the table. Its okay to reuse, but you really need to do a better job scraping off the serial numbers.

This is how magic items should come about. Unplanned, unrequisitioned, unordered.

valadaar's comment on 2006-08-16 11:07 AM
Definatly a cool item!

Regarding the pieces of the great puzzle being eaten, etc, I think the easiest solution would be that missing pieces simply reappear with any other unassembled pieces.

The final puzzle for powerful mages could even be a gate to somewhere interesting.. Go to Comment
