VERY cool idea. For some reason it even feels a little Asimov-ish to me, but I don't know why. I always love those high-tech ancients, and ditto to what the others said about creating a wonderfully unique and exotic creature. Brings a welcome splash of creativity into any dull world! Go to Comment
Wow. This is awesome. It's one of those "Congratulations! You're screwed!" that repeats itself about six times. So many plot twists are possible, and there are a lot of ways that this can be used. Nifty. Go to Comment
Chekov's Spell -- This spell has a two-fold effect. The first is to make the target item almost-unnoticeable to anyone not specifically looking for it. The second is that someone who has seen the item will remember it when they encounter a situation that would be perfectly solved by use of said item.
