An original item, provisions are often a forgotten part of adventuring. I would have like some more details in the description, this can not to just plain stone, and maybe some unique recipes that can only be made with this magical mill. Gold bread for the king, bone cookies for the necromancer? Go to Comment

Nice item. Items like this are more common in the mytho-historical record than the uber-swords. I read once a myth about a viking Grotte (I think) who had mill stone that would turn anything into anything. Eventually the stone was captured and the naive new owner asked for salt. Of course things went wrong and now the oceans are salty. Then there was the Strega Nona's pasta pot. You stone here will be a nice item for players because it doesn't have a down side or relgious trappings. I can see the players messing with it.



Excitable Player: "If we hook this up to a wind mill and maybe a sand chute, we could make a kiling selling grain."



Roleplaying Player: "By the Gods dear sir, you would take Hannetta's blessings to all men and use it for such base self-advancement."



Meta-player Number 1: "Yeah, if we do that the GM will have us drown in grain or something."

I want this to be the focus of a save-the-town quest. Everyone is starving, quickly! Find and lug the heavy stone object through the dungeon, across the rickety canyon bridge (WHUMP!), over the lake in the leaky boat (*gurgle*), up the hill, up the hill again, (Damn you Sisyphus!) et cetera. It makes me snigger with evil DM delight.

I like it. Simple, useful, sentimental, and not at all overpowering. How big an object will fit into it? If someone's hand is caught in it, will the millstone magically keep grinding and pull them in or does it require manual turning of a crank? If gold is ground up, will the resulting bread be a sparkling glitter-gold bread?



As strange as it sounds, I could see this item as a way to "destroy" an indestructible evil artifact. The artifact wouldn't be destroyed; it would just change forms to flour and thereafter baked into safe, edible, and tasty bread. "Give us the Conqueror's evil Medallion of Malice, or we will kill you and take it anyway!" "I ground it into flour to make my bread! What now, punk?"

I might not have made it clear how much of a mess it is inside. I wrote this on the verge of sleep, and after some more, may consider clarifying the dunes of loose papers and scrolls that cover the interior... A wizards study does not handle continuous jostling well. Go to Comment

.. Amusing, and well characterized. These are the kind of 'personalized' touches a crafted item should have, imo.

It's funny in an "I can imagine one of my players coming up with this" way. Quirky and original, too. Not entirely practical, but for a lighthearted campaign quite useful. Have a 4/5



On a side note, imagine super magical birds being the supreme rulers, and their envoys carrying their bird houses hence and forth. Perhaps the UberBird has its BirdPalace linked to a hundred portable StaffBirdHouses!

Another fun idea that makes me wish I had thought of it. While in function no different from existing items like a portable hole or folding house, the thematic link with the sparrow-familliar raises it above the fold. I would just like to have some twist or drawback added, to prevent it from begin too good.

Maybe after exiting, one must make a willsave or one believes to be a bird for an hour? Or cats are attracted to the birdhouse, and can attack trough the hole?

Otherwise, 4/5 Go to Comment

It might be a problem with your browser, or it could be that the site is designed almost-exclusively for computer browsers. If you go to yonder forum, you can make a post asking Strolen about it.

But yes, you should have a voting dropdown box right above the comment box. Go to Comment

I agree with Siren, this fits my idea of how custom items should be. They should definitely have personalized touches.

valadaar's comment on 2011-12-13 10:43 AM


  I think this is a brilliant item - a wonderful take on a portable extradimensional space.  



An elaboration on the enchanted furniture would be a sentiant construct or more, that were responsible for maintaining order. These would be named and have real personalities, and get annoyed when the staff was signifcantly disrupted.



 I would reduce the impact of using it as a walking stick as otherwise the constructs would go batty :)



 



Now, if the mage happend to take a tumble from a horse, or had to use it in combat, he would fret about having to deal with his annoyed servants.
