Damn, I only got through the "no not him the guy with buttons" and the whirling flashing button before I started laughing. This is awesome. Go to Comment

Hey, what WOULD happen if your internal temperature dipped like that? Heart attack? Extreme sickness? Go to Comment

Or, you could kill someone by holding it over their head and activating it. That would be almost guaranteed to kill them. It would be like getting shot in the top of the head, except by a magic button. Go to Comment

Registero

This button is covered by cloth that is many times sewn over by threads of many colours, and strongly sewn to the garment. If any ordinary button is ripped from this garment, or becomes lose and falls, it gives off a cracking sound that the wearer is sure to notice. If this button is cut off or torn violently by someone, it gives the person a minor jolt of static electricity. No harm, just a little ouch. Go to Comment

Now, isn't this a bit powerful effect if compared to the others? Go to Comment

Blubglub

The button is made from a piece of glass that was discarded because it contains bubbles. It has to be processed into shape, with many more tiny bubbles carved on its surface. When it breaks, whether by accident or say by throwing against a hard surface, it expands into a great colourful bubble, persists for a moment, only to *pop* into nothing. It is utterly harmless, but can be a great diversion. Go to Comment

There is another variant sold under the same name. It comes in pairs; two buttons made of stone or metal, polished to be smooth, usually attached to the sleeves.

When stroke against another, they produce sparks, and can also create fire. Go to Comment

Hopsa

This big wooden piece (for a button) is quite soft to the touch. When detached from its base and dropped from a small height, or gently thrown down, it will jump back again, and again, and again, always precisely to the height it fell from. It makes a nice effect for street comedians, clowns, minor sorcerers and the like.

Even more interesting it is to musicians, its perfect rhythm serving as a good focusing tool. Some of better entertainers change the speed of their play depending on its speed. Starting in a slow tempo, with the occasional tap, they speed up the hopping until they achieve a truly outrageous performance or fail, both to the great amusement of the viewers. If you can do that, you can earn some decent money from the nobility.


The button can hop for no longer than an hour, then it must rest in its socket for at least a day. Go to Comment

The Three Buttons of Envy

Whoever made them, it must have been an evil person; perhaps they were born as a reflection of their personality.

Kink: this pastel-colored ivory piece has a little point. If rubbed against an item with intention, it can quietly scratch almost anything. It can't really destroy or damage, but it will ruin the beauty of a mirror or other polished surfaces.

Spoil: the green painted wood button will despoil perishable goods quickly. It doesn't take much effort when it is dipped into a jar of milk, but to sour a closed barrel of wine would require genuine, burning hate.

Smudge: the black stone material, when concentrated on, is revealed to be coal and it rubs itself onto anything with ease. It makes everything dirty and attracts more dirt, good to use on clothes or furniture.


The buttons are powered by the envy and/or hate of their user, the stronger they feel it, the stronger the effect will be. After some diligent use, the user will feel exhausted (but vindicated!). If all three are used at once, they can cause actual damage to objects, straining their malicious wielder. The perfect set for a little covert vandalism. Go to Comment

Button Of Truth

This ornate button, decorated by soft wire, blinks when the wearer speaks what he feels is the truth and is certain of that. The button does not blink in all other cases - whether he is unsure or telling outrageous lies. Some claim it is possible to cheat the button. Most are quickly annoyed by the constant blinking.

Claviol

This dull grey button is the ultimate for the fashion conscious: when held and concentrated on, all other buttons change their color to whatever the wearer wishes, for a night. This button must stay drab for contrast; so it is usually sown on the inside.

It is a very reliable button, but it is said, that one user vomited on it after too much partying, and was cursed for years with always mismatching buttons. That's what they say about it, honestly. Go to Comment

Whistler: this bronze button looks more like a cheap brooch in the shape of an elephant. Usually sown into undistinct clothing of someone that needs to hide, one can blow into the trunk and whistle. Once per day, the owner may produce a much louder tune, and concentrating on a person will make him or her really feel it - usually producing a headache making them think again about doing whatever they were doing. Sometimes that's enough to escape trouble or call for help.

Carmelli

The Carmelli comes from the Hillfolks tribal past. This small round wooden charm appears to be a button. It is the perfect size and thickness. The small carvings are decorative and easy to copy. The enchantment on the button charm is of a low difficulty and requires little power to execute. The "button" gives the wearer a small tingle when passed over possible foodstuffs that are not "good to eat". This charm was normally used by gatherers to check for toxic or hard to digest food. As the tribal peoples have become village folk, they brought the charm with them. Now it is used to detect poisons, contaminated grain, or if the slightly turned food are still safe to eat.

The Lin Kuei button #1
This seemingly plain black button made from a naturally shaped river stone when touched creates a field of silence for three feet around it. Thesee buttons are generally worn at the legs of close fitting pants so that the zone of silence covers the sounds of walking. (Signifigant bonus to Move Silently)

The Lin Kuei button #2
This black button, made from a piece of resin sealed coal turns the wearer's clothes black as soot for a short amount of time. Useful for hiding in shadows and avoiding notice. Go to Comment

Blackie's Little Sneaks
Fashionable buttons carved of a black unicorn's horn, and inlaid with silver, they go well with a noble lady's dress.
Once, they belonged to Samantha 'Blackie' Sehraine, a witty noble who sought to take especially the jewelry, but also the secrets or spouses of her rivals.

Several of them hold tiny intruments, like finest lockpicks, files, or long thin wire.
A few can be thrown on the floor to release smoke, or sleeping gas.
One transmits sound to its twin, making it excellent for eavesdropping.
Another can be tossed into a drink, making it into a love potion with a short duration if it contains alcohol.
One can produce a sharply cut diamond that is able to cut glass, or produced mightily unpleasant scratching sounds.
One can produce a mild curse of bad luck if oyu manage to sneak it into the possessions of the individual to be cursed.

All of them share one property: whereever they may be, the one holding the master button can call all the other buttons to him, whereupon they start hopping, rolling, sliding and bouncing towards him. This is also how Samantha was caught: having become careless, she called her buttons back too soon, and a clever spy tracked her thus... Go to Comment
