This is pretty cool. I like different takes of what to do with a bag of holding, especially since the doors have so many unique purposes. Though I don't completely understand the Golden Door, is it for carrying loot?
The sour fruit are analogs to Almond fruit, as I based the seeds off of almonds, which are technically peach seeds, not nuts, and high in phosphorus. Phosphorus was discovered in 1669 by a chemist working with urine, so I figured make a special mix with binary components, loosely based off of real stuff, and have fun burning stuff! Go to Comment
The only thing silly about this submission is the name of the wizard. I like the idea of extra-dimensional spaces being researched not in terms of magic but in mathematical expressions. I think this is fascinating, and i am imagining all sorts of fractal expressions written out in old spellbooks.
Makes me think more of unintended consequences, and why magic should be something not fooled with by the unwary, with something as esoteric as manipulating space being beyond the typical fireballs and lightning bolts sort of magic Go to Comment
gold star for writing an amusing, flippant and engaging tale. The writing and word play alone kept me interested. It is a nice story and a fun pontification on fairly a ubiquitous trope in the RPG world Go to Comment
"Binding the Life Coil" is an ancient quasi-mystical technique rediscovered to prolong one's life at the expense of one reproductive ability. It is a simple magikal technique that anyone can learn (a skill or feat). The promise of near immortality or a lifespan of a thousand years or more makes everyone want to learn it.
This technique has a price though, the amount of immortality is in direct response to the strength of ones reproductive spirit. Those that have never breed will live longer than those that have. The use of the technique makes conception difficult, if not impossible. So you trade the future of your society for the chance for you to see much of that future.
