A perfect item for a young druid or magic user. Simple, not overpowering. I like it. Go to Comment

We should see more of this - the resources of the Citadel are ripe for building upon.

A great item type that can be gateway to many things, perhaps quite unwholesome.

The Headsman

This sullen piece has a nearly monochromatic pallet - dark blues, greys and blacks, depicting an obviously well-used gallows in some village square.  Standing on the gallows is a burly headsman and a victim with his head on the block.  At a distance, the victim appears indistinct, blurry, as if someone has defaced or smudged the painting.  

However, if one gets closer to the statue, the image will change and the headsman axe will come down, severing the head of the victim. At that point, the viewer will see their own visage upon the severed head and die from the shock*.

*Normal counter-magic game mechanics appy of course.

The City

This broad panoramic landscape of a great stone city is perhaps on of the largest of the works, nearly seven feet wide and three high.  The name of the city is not given, even though its distinctive architecture should by all rights provide a clear clue.  No-one can recognize this city, though it holds the echo of some distinct memory. In any case, it has the same aura of malice that mark all of Marcus's works.

Careful inspection of the piece can make out shadowy, indistinct inhabitants, which never appear to be the same on different viewings.  

The painting's curse is a slow growing obsession with finding this city, that will eventually cause one to either seek it out, or spend ones fortune having the city located.

The fellow is wonderfully complex, using the cliche'd Family Killed By Orcs and turning it around so he hates the Elves instead.

Lots of possibilities here, and he might be fertile ground for demonic possession to push him still further to the dark side.

This massive sword screams Anime - but it is still interesting and its curse is a good one.

Weightlessness is also something you really don't want in a sword unless it is also ridiculously - light-sabre - sharp. No inertia to help punch through armour and crush bone.

Not quite - since it is not specified that magic cannot pass, if the victim is a sorcerer (or becomes one from the library within), he might be able to communicate via magic to someone outside. And convince them to stuff a few more victims within.

Of course this would not be easy, either physically or perhaps ethically.

Or he could appeal to a greater power - this option is listed and a viable one in many game worlds.

And there are lots of things in the universe that provide few options other then death. Getting into this thing is not trivial as it stands - the victim must either be forced to gaze within, or otherwise somehow tricked into doing so. It would probably be easier to kill the victim conventionally if that were the intent. Go to Comment

This really dances around the character without really describing her. Yes, she's a musician, and yep, she's and orphan.

I think this erred on the side of being too general, Asian names notwithstanding. Go to Comment

Certainly a blank slate location. Not bad for it's age - it is quite usable.
