Nice backstory, Nothing overpowerful, although, I really don't see this in the hands of adventurers. It would have to something that would fall into use by kingdom or world builders.

It's a tool for your NPC cultist leader, outlaw who is the true king, leader of a cultural exodus, et cetera.

This is very cool, and could be a great addition to a starting location for a campaign to help explain the number of unusual folk.

It could also draw something or someone that really should not be drawn. Perhaps someone to revenge the loss of the folk in the stone.

Reply to Agar:

Columbia might be reletively easy to capture in human form (assuming she's not a warrior type) and the shape-shifting ability wouldn't help if she had no control over it (i.e. it ONLY happens on the night of the full moon).

Keeping her captive would be easy enough if the captor knows about her ability -- simply put her in a cage an the night of the full moon.

The problem, of course, is that the slave trader never told Kerlon this. Go to Comment

Maybe the girl doesn't even know..if it were some odd resonance magic from being used as a living spell-book.

A thing like that could turn someone into a wild mage pretty quick.

But the gorgeous and beautiful irony is..she can't read what he wrote. It's on her back written in mage runes..hee hee.

I bet just the thought of her sets necromancers drooling. Go to Comment

Maybe the wizard falling in love with Her (oh so soft skin)
and the evil sect need just the skin from the girl's back...
and maybe they sacrifice her after...
hm?
But it reveals after first escape to the players, when they catch a girl and escort back to the wizard
so this is a boomerang quest :)

I think this is a great idea! I found it a little surprising that Columbia suddenly sprouted wings, but maybe if you made it clear she was some sort of captured fairykin to start with it would make it less of a shock.

Perhaps to spice it up a little more she is found staying with some powerful friends (e.g. eagles in the mountains) with whom the PCs would have to negotiate/do combat to retrieve her.

A Swanmay is somewhere in between a Druid and a Were-Swan. (Ack! I've been bit by a swan! Now I am surely cursed!)

I like the story but would like some more fleshed out, like what Columbia was doing captured if she could turn into a pidgeon.

It could also be used with a twist :
Maybe a rival sent the girl to the wizard, all the while subtley implanting the idea (of hiding the research on her body) in the wizards mind
(ie : "she does have smooth skin on her, doesn't she?" "I once saw a shaman that had tatooed his clan history on his back...")

Now the moon came & the girl turned to a pigeon, & where deos a pigeon fly to? ...back to her original owner.

A beautiful woman with powerful magics inscribed in her flawless skin, and she can sponataneously turn into a bird. Very interesting, I could see it done in an anime style, or heck, even as an anime. I'm looking forward to dropping Columbia into a game. Go to Comment

Well, she's no fairy, but a were-pigeon, her powers triggered by Luna in here flawless, round shape...full moon does that to many a were. Others, like were-bears, shift shapes upon berserking, while some might change when scared, or upon contact with some substance or place...
It's reassuring that you like it - I haven't used it myself yet...
Feel free to change it and let me know how it turned out... Go to Comment

I liked the story behind the item. Usually I'd agree with CP: when people can't find a good reason for something to be enchanted, they're inclined to say "a wizard cast a spell on it", but this isn't the same situation. These are more personalised. I find the idea of wizards creating small magical trinkets for one another a novel and innovative way to introduce minor colourful items into a setting, rather than a clichéd artefact-churning mechanism.

Keep up the good work, Echo.

Don't believe your friend. That's just flattery.
The story is allright. I don't like it that an item that is supposed to be so special or interesting is just a thing that some wizard cast a spell on. That never satisfies me.
So...
