Reminds me of the Labyrinth door in the oubliette. The perfect getaway for the entire party to rest...as long as they hid the door well enough when they close it.
Perhaps the door emanates magic while it is closed in use though. Make it useful, but also a magnet for the magic sensitive so not horribly useful while invading a powerful wizard's dungeon. Go to Comment
No, may be definitively useful for invading a powerful magic-user's or a dragon's lair. Get in and take care that it will be found. Ever heard of the Trojan Horse? Better have a cover inside, if the 'new owner' takes a peek! Go to Comment
I liked the door. It made me think. Perhaps one of cloth that had to be unfolded and rubbed against the rock? Or one that folded up several times so as not to be so bulky? How about one that, after you were inside, could be taken off the wall and stood in the corner, making the door outside vanish?
I had one, The Playroom, that was 2 inches tall. When stood on the ground and opened with it's key, it became a children's nursery. Great for adventuring mothers. Go to Comment
Having the spirit of a bear in a cloak could be very interesting. I am thinking uncontrolled rage of somesort during a fight when the bears power and strength take over somewhat. Wearer gets much more stronger and somehow attains the mass of the bear able to overpower previously very strong opponents. Would be quite a surprise when a modestly built person starts overpowering a huge opponent.
Thinking the spirit of the bear searching for a worthy owner could actively do it in the dream world. Pretty much invading the dreams of those he finds worthy and 'calling' for them in cryptic dream messages. Perhaps it is lost somewhere, or its current owner does not respect it properly. Could be a hook for a nature oriented character and help bring the characters somewhere. Go to Comment
A dream quest was maybe at the creation of this item. Shamen may know about it, and one not so worthy may seek it. Given this job, you also start having mysterious dreams. When you finally get it, it slowly becomes clear it does not want that new owner. But it rightly belongs to him (may be Mareks heir). After/if it is given he may die a sudden death at the claws of a bear... Go to Comment
