Personally, I like powerful items (to a degree) and a one shot hurricane item does not bother me, so long as it was dang expensive and difficult to create.
It could easily cause an "Oh Crap!" moment :)

I would have it take effect over a slightly longer period then 30 seconds. To affect miles and miles of clouds, the magic effect would need to take a while.
What if there were no clouds? I could see them appearing, but 30 seconds?

Now, this really is the equivalent to a magic Atomic Bomb and would need to be treated as such with attendant magical protections, security forces, etc.

An enemy mage could easily teleport (if available) into a city, plant and activate it, and then leave. Go to Comment

Hmm.

3 for an _ok_ plot. +.5 for the great moral discussion it lit off!

Now, just because a spider is a big, evil, man-eating beast, does not mean the PCs' can't do business with it. Business is business after all! :)

The only leverage the spider has is that it knows where the evil mage is, and evil mages are Always worth killing :)

So there could be some negotiation. And then when they are done, then they kill the spider. Go to Comment
Trotter's Wand of Unfair Trade

valadaar's comment on 2014-05-05 02:10 PM
Well, this is neat :) Am ambivalent at the poetry, but it is something to this point unique.

I like the item, and it is a true trickster's tool.

Good job!

The premise of an addictive spider bite is interesting, if a bit weird. Usually bites are intended to either disable their prey/attacker or at least drive them away.

This would make an excellent PC background as well and is a great view from the other side. Just as I prefer my white with a ting of black, so too black should be tinged with white.

Decent pirate, could use some more depth, and unless she's ogre-sized she's not tucking muskets in her sash :)

the Upheld Lantern

valadaar's comment on 2016-02-02 11:10 AM
I can see this used if the PCs are well acquainted going in, otherwise it is shooting fish in a barrel. Most game groups I've been with would not do anything special to prevent the lantern from being put down.

Could be an interesting 1-off scenario where somehow the lantern was taken aboard a ship. Sort of a form of Speed.

They need to keep it from 'detonating'. Sadly there is a storm a'brewing.
