When I noticed that this was the daily highlight I was sure that I'd read it before, which I have.



Cannot believe that I didn't comment or vote on it at the time.



It's a great sub and sadly there isn't really anything that I can add.

Really like the myth.  The temple is a useful location as well.

The myth does overshadow the temple a bit, but I wasn't sure if I had enough to break this into two separate submissions. I suppose I could expand the temple a bit more then resubmit the Legend as another post -- what do you think? Go to Comment

Based on comments received from Michael and Pieh, I'm proceeding with a rewrite that will add more life and color to the temple proper. The legend will probably remain as part of this post for now, but might still be expanded to its own sub in the future. Go to Comment

The level of intrigue this could build into my game is great. Thank you. Go to Comment

Very nice. Great Quest submission. I could easily see these topping many wizard's staves.

I particularly enjoyed the parts about the captured Will O' Wisps and the brief reference of "lux mites" which sound like they would be very mundane in a magical world, but with many subtle uses. Go to Comment

I'd like a more original origin story, with, say, a tale of inspiration, more poetic than "I needed it, I made it".

Other than that, good! Go to Comment

You beat me to this idea, and man am I glad you did! I was considering something roughly akin to this as a sidenote submission to enhance my own quest idea, but your implementation is much more detailed and thought out than my own. Kudos! Go to Comment

I found this to be a great post, I really like when supernatural items have almost mundane or utilitarian slant.  Very every uber-item, when should have five or six of these easy to use magic items that serve the mechanics of magic first and foremost.  



 



What bumps this up to a sweet post for me is the culturally and historical suggestive style of writing.  With this one piece of materiall culture you describe a much larger world. Well done.

A nice item - well done and welcome to Strolens!

Transform this into a material, and it is readily used in Steampunk for lighting.

Is there expected to be an upper end on it's power? If you were to use it in 1st Edition D&D and temporarily transport it to the plane of Radiance, could you store 8 hours of that type of power?

Or is it limited to energies of mortal experience :)

I like the origin story too. Players wouldn't care about all the thought you've put into this, but I can imagine an NPC wizard having a lot of fun lecturing the PCs about all their uses.

Odd physics question: Are they an information destruction paradox like black holes might be? If it sucks in all the light from a dim TV screen and emits a flat, monochromatic, invariant light, it seems like it would.

Not that paradoxes have ever stopped anyone. Go to Comment

You know, I thought about these orbs for about a day and a half before submitting, and never did I consider one breaking! The effect would probably depend on what type of break it was. If an orb were to shatter entirely, it would release all of its stored light at once, dazzling the user and any nearby creatures and possibly causing temporary blindness in some.

If it were to crack, however, I imagine that the light would escape slowly with some random intensity. Kind of like a bucket that has a hole in it; the larger the crack, the more quickly the light would escape. What would happen to a creature inside the orb at this point is anybody's guess.

Thanks for the creative feedback on my first submission -- it's much appreciated! Go to Comment

I love the idea of using these as toppers to wizards' staves -- much more convenient than carting them around by hand in a dungeon. I cannot claim credit for the lux mites, however: those are an old submission of Shadoweagle's that I decided to include here. I've added the links to my post now, so you can check them out if you wish. Go to Comment
