A lovely piece that needs an entire setting rewritten around it. All those little magics easily available is going to change a lot about the world.

Basically, you have magi-punk and magi-tech going on here. All your modern conviences as imagined from the magical view. Magi-tech because many things that would be tech are simply magic here.

The world will be a very different place if this stuff is mass produced enough to be really this cheap. Go to Comment

The Pest Protector

In a land as wet as Lyra, one often has to deal with noxious gnats, moskitoes and even the dreaded mosquigo, long like a man's arm.
Pinker and Strotz have garnered praise upon praise for this trinket, which drives the annoying bloodsuckers away, or, in the case of the deluxe model, zaps them with a magical discharge. The deluxe model also has a broader field of application, frying even lice and ticks, but is significantly more expensive. Still, even the basic model is worth a few coins to almost everyone.

Amulet of Warning

This amulet goes cold when anyone has any bad intentions towards the wearer, ranging from a degree or two colder when the bad intention is small, to a degree above zero if the bad intention is serious. Like almost any item, it has both good and bad uses-criminals have been using these to warn when city guards are nearby and weed out informers in their ranks, and sevweral informers have turned up dead or badly beaten.

On the other hand it has saved lives as well, so the local rulers are uncertain or not if it should be made illegal. Go to Comment

Anti-Itch Underpants

These are very useful to anyone with itchy skin who does not want to scratch their crotch in public.They have three spells on them and the customer can choose which one to activate by touching one of three small buttons on the underpants. One spell deadens the itch, one spell scratches the itch without the fingers needing to be used (which can cause rawness) and one spell pulls out any fungus from the skin (which can cause bleeding but clears the infection.)

Magical Torch

This small stave of carved and enchanted quartz glows a soft white without burning itself or anything else. As it cannot harm anybody, there are no laws against it's use even in the more repressive states. A few have illegally modified this torch to flash brightly in the eyes of attackers, something that the law takes a dim view of. Go to Comment

Rain Deflector Hat

This diverts rain away from the wearer, but only just far away to avoid the wearer getting wet, unlike other spells from other wizards which push the rain away too much, so one area floods and the other one has a drought. Go to Comment

Firework Spectacles and Firework Earmuffs

If you put these on at night and look up into the sky, you see and hear a private illiousion of a huge firework display, that only you can see and hear. Great for using in areas where fireworks are banned. No more having to dodge City Guard patrols and risk igniting wildfires. No more risking getting blown up lighting fireworks. And when you've had enough you just take them off and out of your ears and the display is over, Go to Comment

A classic pair, I like the line about cornblessing and lantern lighting, not being their cup of tea. Good voice on this piece, they are well-presented and described. Enough detail on the duo is provided that they can be included in plot-hooks, instead of just regurgitating minor items.

Ok, now I'll have to think of a few scroll additions. I was thinking dog-repellant robes, or maybe dyslexia-fixing spectacles. Go to Comment

This is an absolutely wonderful piece, both with regard to the idea and the excuition. I actually laughed out loud while reading it. Moon is right you could put this into any setting with a mystical component and indeed I want to changed my campaign worlds around so this store could fit into them. Thanks for writing this, I can't believe I haven't seen this before. What charcoal soul could give this piece anything less than a 5? Go to Comment

Socks of delayed satisfaction.

When worn these socks or stockings provide the wearer with a resistance to the temptation and experience of physical pleasure. The smell of baking bread will not make your mouth water, the feeling of smooth willing flesh under your palm will not quicken your heart, and a beautiful person spoon feeding you a smooth and creamy desert will bring you no more pleasure or excitement than the last spoonful of cold oatmeal your mother made you eat.

The effect of the socks is just an illusion, and your mouth really is watering, your hormones are raging, your pupils do dilate at the site of beauty and your brain is pumping out endorphins by the liter. The socks also have a limit and if the wear is sufficiently stimulated or tempted the socks will literally be blown right of his or her feet. Go to Comment

Simple bodily aliments have historically been one of the core uses for magic among the masses. Voodoo has charms for indigestion, sleeplessness, impotence and bad breath. Rake and new age medicine cover the same sort of ground using metaphysics to treat muscle tension and even cancer. And if you have any doubt about the desire of the medieval world to seek a metaphysical resolution to minor illnesses then look to the saints. The patron Saint of Toothaches: Saint Alena, Hemorrhoids: Saint Alexander, and numerous others were called forth to treat small pains. Medieval art produced enough depictions of people, women mostly, inducing men to vomit, and giving enemas that numerous examples still survive. I think in our days of ubiquitous medical care we forget how truly painful a impacted wisdom tooth could be without pain killers or dentistry. Constipation, cramps or digestive issues would be a major concern of any pre-industrial populace that had enough to eat and money to spend at a penny spell shop. For all this reasons I say a Scroll of Regularity is a an more than reasonable, it is absurd to envision its absence. Any arguments?


Scroll of Regularity

Be you a hardened soldier of fortune or a single mother raising the soldier's bastards, nobody has time for constipation. A Scroll of Regularity gives instant relief by mystically relaxing the bowel and softening the stool. Based on an Explosive Runes spell, all one needs to do is read the Scroll, and immediately they will void their bowels. Go to Comment

Rocks of Rodent Fear

These small smooth rocks are each marked with a Ward of Fear. This ward is specific for rats, mice and squirrels, and each stone has radius of effect of roughly 11 inches. Any rodent that comes within 11 inches of one of these stones will be overcome with fear, as if confronted by a predator and bright lights. These items pay for themselves, tossing handfuls of these through out you pantry, garden or grain bin can save you fistfuls of coin. Go to Comment
