I think the big C is too useful a tool for horror to use this casually.  The level of waste implied is irrational - even for cannibals.

Something would be doing this for a purpose, not just some random cannibals on some type of eating binge.

Muros comment is on the right track, but I think the idea can definitely be reworked.

A basic starter, greatly enhanced by the comments it brought forward.

2001! Wow.(for the age, the item needs work, but it was an early one...) Go to Comment
Armor of Huran
Items  (Armor)   (Combat)
valadaar's comment on 2014-01-20 09:25 AM
A decent item. Axlerowes is right on with this one.

As for a penalty while charged, the armour glows visibly, though not enough to provide real illumination.

Tolky's Rock
Items  (Jewelry)   (Magical)
valadaar's comment on 2014-01-20 09:16 AM
So, from what I gather, Tolky never opened the bag, possibly knowing what would happen.

One of Tolky's crew decided to keep it for himself, so opened the bag, closed it, placed a copy of the bag in its place (Tolky would never open the bag and so the theft would not be discovered in time) and fled with the stone.

Amulet of Ber

Simple, but effective in some circumstances. Most jewellers I've run always have sufficient guards to discourage crime, so this item would need to be area-effect to be useful in such circumstances. Go to Comment

This one made me think and wonder about the holes left open.

Sometimes, you want something more, other times, the spark is all that is needed.

Offered Wealth

valadaar's comment on 2011-04-26 10:24 AM

I like Melvin's twist - occasionally the entire boat is taken as an offering :)

And yes, there is something in the water - perhaps a dragon or similar beastly. It would have sorcerous powers so it would occasionally gift good luck on the donors. 

Lots of plot hooks can come from that - a jealous nearby town might try to end the local town's luck by any number of ruses - perhaps poisoning the lake, sending warriors to kill the benefactor, dropping trapped gifts to enrage the beast, etc.

Even nobels could get jealous and seek to know the truth, and perhaps capture the beast.

Plainsmen Rituals
Plots  (Travel)   (Encounter)
valadaar's comment on 2011-04-26 10:17 AM

I expect the purpose of this encounter is to teach the lesson of learning about places you are going to go, as in most circumstances freeing the victims is the 'correct' behavior.  Given the lead in is the PC's have been led off the beaten path, this is not likely to have happened, so the PC's either will have done something normally immoral (leave em to hang), or they will be led into a possibly lethal encounter with a tribe over cultural differences.

I'd expect _some_ type of foreshadowing to hint at the correct behavior.

Sword of Belwar

valadaar's comment on 2014-01-20 09:02 AM
I found this amusing - the idea is reasonably complete though relies too much on gamespeak.

Nearly as old as it gets, it could make a good entry on a list of mildly cursed weapons.

AD*D Powergamers with such a sword would simply need not take the specific proficiency for this weapon, though that would be rather unlikely.

I think the original author meant spirit :) Seems to make more sense to me that way.

Its the start of something at least.

Wulf is spot on with this.  Since there is not much adventure in rowing and getting whipped, this would have to be a short scene ended by something more dramatic. Like, looking left and seeing an oncoming enemy galley about to ram...

I like the idea of rallying a village to help defend it.  In the TV mini-series, Pillars of the Earth (and novel, though never read it.), there is a battle of the correct scale for PCS' - the attackers are about 20 men at arms and knights attacking a small town.  A small number of 'PCs' help rally the defense with a nice small scale battle.
