Hm. The story is interesting. Can't say it's my cup of tea, but it's interesting.

The why and how of it isn't explained. Did this kid just will a weird stick to become a magic spear? And the magic properties are a little wordy in their explanation.

It's got potential, I reckon. But as is, it doesn't do much for me. Go to Comment

Decent writing, idea is somewhat unclear, and Why is not answered at all. Where did it come from?

Well, it's an interesting idea, but the way it is, at best a sketchy piece to add into a larger campaign. Otherwise, this location is useless.

2/5 for the interesting idea and effort, but there isn't backstory, or anything to hook it into a larger campaign. Go to Comment

This is certainly an eerie location, one that could set alot of characters and players on edge. Surely something terrible and evil happened hear, a demon, a horror from beyond, the entire place could be infested with ghosts, it wouldnt matter. They wouldnt stay long, they wouldnt wait for me to spring the trap on them. But in this case there would be no trap, the place is simply empty now, but it's magic and enchantments remain.

After the Unpleasantness? My name is Pyrotess by the way. I'm sorry, I can't figure out how to post as my name. I joined and everything. *frowns*
Sounds like Lance. He can be quite unpleasant. And arrogant. That prat. Oh well. I guess all leads are dead now. *sighs* Go to Comment

...You people are so needy!! Anyway, Lance Darkmoon is the purple winged apocalypse angel. The single fastest combative being I've ever known of. Dimensification is the ability to make something that's there into something that isn't there without changing what's really there.
And by the way, if you use "The Key" the wizard's mind takes you over and your mind is wiped and his true memory replaces you. He is resurrected and you die. Go to Comment

So, what do we have here?

What:
A set of variously-coloured marbles, each with a bond to a special type of magic. But how many marbles are there? Are there 10, 20, 50, 200 marbles?


Current status:

a) All are still together, except maybe the last marble. No wonder, because this is the best way to study them.
b) Separated into smaller groups. Some keep various wizards, hoping to get those powers, some are lost.
c) Were purposefully separated, each one somewhere else, so no one can get this amount of power. Still, someone may be willing to gather them all. Instant campaign here: go to (n) dangerous places, and get those damn marbles together!
4d) The little boy around the corner plays with a sack of nice marbles...


Immediate usefulness:

Useless. Look as ordinary marbles, coloured, but who cares. May radiate great magic. Will need much time to fully control its powers.


Theoretical usefulness:

'Gives complete knowledge about a field of magic'. What does it mean?
Does it give knowledge about all spells from that field of magic? Does it give you actually power to cast them? That would be way too much.


Making it work:
A wizard deposited his knowledge into these marbles. How to unleash the powers?

a) Is not possible anymore, the knowledge will fit only into the mind of that long-dead wizard. Makes a cruel joke for the poor players that hoped for unending power...
b) The process must be repeated. The wizard studies, wipes his mind clean, and binds the respective marbles to it. Will take a very long time.
c) The wizard must form a bond with each marble. While this will take long at first, it will require shorter and shorter amounts of time to bond with the others. This process will change the person in minor ways, make him/her more and more like the creator.
d) The wizard bonds with all marbles at once. Too powerful this option.


Curse:

The last marble shall be cursed. In what way?

If anyone activates and uses the marbles, does it travel through a series of accidents to him, and drives him crazy? Maybe it lets him see that incredible power he wields, and as he looses the control, he commits suicide, or turns to madness. Makes for one more adventure, to kill the wizard-gone-wild, or find out why the suicide after a spectacular increase in magical powers.


Destroying the item:

Unknown. It may be necessary to call upon the spirit of the wizard, and make him remember at least a little bit about every type of magic. This may in turn produce a spellcasting spirit, but hey! You have destroyed powerful cursed item! Go to Comment

Ok, so the marbles were all in this sack that let him meld all his minds together so he could have all the powers of all his knowledge. And this master of damn near all known and a couple unknown (and, as of yet, undefined) magics got robbed by a really fast fighter.

If all that magic doens't stop you from getting mugged, it's not worth it. Go to Comment

Wow, I'd forgotten that sword. Once it was clarified some, it was good for the purpose it was intended for.

I should assume that Anonymous was Dimensification but he forgot to log in. Anyway, we ask the questions we ask so we can have the information we need to be able to use the ideas in our own games if we want to. That's the point of sharing ideas, the ability to spead the idea and share it.

So why was this angel of the apocalypse after this young wizard? Go to Comment

Some things:

1. So these marbles contain the all possible knowledge about their specific kinds of magic? A little too powerful, don't you think?
2. I noticed that among the types of magic, there was one called "dimensification". What is dimensification? Go to Comment

No, it doesn't help. What is Dimensification? The removal of really heavy objects? Getting walls out of the way? And who is this Lance Darkmoon? Go to Comment

It's our place to ask questions. My first post, the Sword of Unattainable Glory, got a lot of questions from Agar about it's uses and powers and all that. It's what we do. So don't feel bad, man.

Well, Anonymous, I don't know who you are, or what you have in connection to Di-munchkin-fication, but he doesn't come here anymore. We asked him not to return after the Unpleasantness. Go to Comment
