That dungeon may be actually empty... it's only the treasure that kills! And it looks even better afterwards (regenerates cuts etc. if fed). Might be one of the traps for grave-robbers. Cursed items are a good base for treasure hoards!
So if you removed that chains... don't look surprised... Go to Comment
Thinking of that, what if the coat can be placated (well, for a time...), by stories at least as horrible as his own, if not more. So if you need to wear it, make sure you can recite sufficiently gruesome stories for the cloak to enjoy.
Then, imagine a nervous figure in a coat with a fox, constantly mumbling something about horrible death and carnage. Go to Comment
I fixed it. This is a really neat item. A really, really creepy item, but nifty nonetheless. Might give rise to stories of monsters inhabiting the dungeons it rests in, because survivors aren't likely to think an apparently harmless coat is the culprit. But how did it get that way? Is it possessed by some vengeful, evil spirit, or was it a spell gone terribly awry, or what? Go to Comment
Hmmm...Never put much thought into that...It's really your call, but I would make it a sentient creature that was killed, and thus, it's spirit haunts the cloak for revenge against the hunters. Go to Comment
I just read a novel that the main character had a tanned hellhound coat that could talk to people mentally if it chose to. and prefers coal to eat. could also breafth fire 3 times a day. cool concept. but you should have it give it a small benifit so that a character would like to keep it Go to Comment
The size of it being a single fox disturbs me in thinking how big the fox must have been. Were i to use it I would make it a wolf pelt of some size to make it more believable as it being from a single animal.
But why stop there. Perhaps there are many forms of this cloak. A bear skin cloak. A cloak made of a panthers skin or tiger. Perhaps a leather cloak made from the hide of a crocodile. The numbers are near endless.
Imagine finding a treasure trove full of bother but animal skin cloaks. Go to Comment
Among the assortment of organized criminals who live in the great city, few command greater fear the Moonbeard Order.
They of course do not call themselves that, but have earned the moniker from their fashion of dying their large beards with lye to produce a distinctive crescent shape running from earlobe to earlobe. This is meant as a taunt for their enemies, for it clearly outlines their throats.
They also wear garb similar to the northern tribesman, carefully tooled leather and showing multiple, colourful glyphs.
They are feared due to the intense discipline that their group maintains, due to their origins as a warrior-sect.
They serve as paid thugs, enforcers and assassins within the city, with the client simply ordering a service from the organization, not hiring an individual. Apart from making the request and providing payment in full in advance, the order completes the assignment themselves.
Their order has many moles through the organizations of the city, and more than a couple of nobles. As such, no organized move has been made against them since their chief activity is directed against other members of the crime world. It is said that their services have been useful for those in power as well, further protecting them from persecution.
Their religion holds that their time in this world is vanishingly brief, and largely unimportant except as training for the Great Battle.
The order is very utilitarian with weapons choice - they simply use the tool needed for the occasion, though not without having trained extensively with it beforehand. Daggers, garrottes, swords, bows, battle axes, polearms, wagons, even siege engines have been used to carry out their contracts.
