I like it, it just feels like it needs something more in terms of a consequence than just dealing with the spirit who rests within the reliquary, especially if you manage to strike a bargain with him. Go to Comment

An object suitable to enhance undead which PC's face, rather than have them own it. It could be a useful item to confound PC's who think they know how things work, by having the undead they are facing suddenly work tactically! Go to Comment

I am voting a little higher than I normally would.

My issue with it is it seems rushed. Just not enough information, for me anyway, that puts the truth behind the war between the two. Or how this reliquary was made. If he was capable of making one than couldn't he effectively trap all of the enemies he defeated and by placing them in these boxes, have a (fantasy version of a computer or Internet) plethora of information at his disposal.

I would be that not only does the box have some control or influence over nearby undead, that perhaps it can eventually subvert weak willed possessors of the box thereby taking them over. Or nearly suggesting ideas.

Now, to the reason I enjoyed it. It's not a unique idea but it executes well. The purpose is there for you to immediately get and understand, although more info would be my vote. It's almost like a mild version of Pandora's box. Go to Comment

A decent item, with lots of potential uses.

For a long-term plot, the spirit inside the box would want to get _out_. For a powerful necromancer, not having a physical body once he does so many not be that big a deal - many undead are non-corporeal. The trick would be how to get out without being drawn off to the afterlife and probably consignment to Hell or its equivalent.

Perhaps a plot could be an infernal being looking to collect the 'overdue' soul of the necromancer. Maybe even recruiting the PCs to this end.

As for why it is not more common - I'd say it could in fact be more common as making magic items by binding spirits within is a perfectly reasonable way to go.

I like this, both because the core idea is pretty cool to me and because the full idea is conveyed in such a short sub. There could be a lot more fluff text (and I would certainly enjoy reading that) but the idea as presented is complete enough to use and adapt. 4/5 Go to Comment

Not a original idea, but fairly well done. As to why he did not do it more often, these things probably take a lot of work, they can't exactly be mass produced. Go to Comment

I'd enjoy hearing more on the backstory of the necromancer and his mad lover; I think that would be worth a dub all in itself. Also, the Council of Five sounds like an interesting organization!

As for the object itself; it's beat, and knowing where you got the inspiration from, I can't help but picture zombies dancing to a fiddle. Go to Comment

I don't mind that it is short. Although I echo Shadow in wanting to know more of the backstory. All in all and odd item to find in the Cult of Necromancers but worthy of a shelf. Go to Comment

Short, simple and good. It has a Friday the 13th (TV series) feel to it. Go to Comment

The intro is great and it's certainly useful as-is. It's also true that I wish there was more backstory and general flavor. Go to Comment

If it wasn't so short, it would have gotten a higher score. But this was a very interesting and original piece. I especially like that it's cursed. Oh, and it's spelled Banshee. Go to Comment

Very nice. Other than a little more back-story on the Necromancer and the Lover, and perhaps a bit more visual detail on the violin itself it would be a very nice piece to drop into the right campaign.

It's too bad none of my players play a bard...

Short and sweet, I like it. Though personally I think that for some extra flair the violin could have physical qualities that subtly betray its function. I'll post an idea in a few. Go to Comment

Perhaps it could be a bit more in appearance than simply a "Masterwork Violin"; perhaps the strings of the violin are bone white, or for something more subtle it perhaps the violin always feel cold, not ice cold, just a little cold. Go to Comment

Pluses for originality and the name Whrrrm which is awesomely mechanical sounding and just fits perfect.

Intro gives us a small taste and the description, while limited, is plenty to get the idea across. Some things I want more details and such, but for this one, I think it was enough.
