There was once a man so saddened by the loss of his love, that he cried and he sniveled and he cried some more. He could not seem to stop crying, only a single lit candle keeping him company in the dark. After weeks he still cried, but the loss of love seemed less important... It was the tears themselves, and that feeling of grief, that kept him running.
The tax collectors found him a month later, hung by the neck, a fallen chair below his dangling feet... And they thought it so sad, they burst into tears.
Notes: The candle will never burn down and will cause everyone in the room to feel angst, grief and heartbreak. Tears will come, even to the most insensitive of thugs.
Once there was a woman so ugly, she was forbidden from showing herself in public. So the old woman sat all by herself, in her small swamp hut, with only a mirror to keep her company. Years passed and each day she faced the mirror and hatefully gazed upon her reflection. She cursed, she screamed insults and she hatefully traced the outlines of her mirror image, spitting and pushing her index finger accusingly.
One morning she awoke and a particularly foul mood was upon her. She pushed herself up, and strode towards the mirror, screaming even before she could see her own image. She took her chamber pot and flinged it forcefully into the mirror, shattering it into hundreds of shards. Then she left the hut, screaming insults all the way into town (Where she was stoned to death by disgusted want-to-be-heros mistaking her for a swamp witch).
The Mirror Shards left by this amazingly ugly woman will absorb any illusion magic nearby. Flaws will become apparent, illusions impossible. Spots will be extra obvious, stains on glasses will be immediately visible. Go to Comment
A good scroll, fairly useful and interesting. The idea is likable, mainly because these aren't highly powerful items. What I see this as becoming is a list of small, but good,items. The kind of stuff that would light up the PC's eye. Yet another good one, Grey. Go to Comment
This small chunk of flint, and paired iron striker, are of singular ability. Anything lit on fire with them will never burn out. It is a fire in every sense except that it does not use any fuel or oxygen. Go to Comment
One day, a angry god made a item that promises to give the user unlimited powers. This is just a suggestion, and not a strong one - anybody can resist it. If you wear it, you will feel like it works......
....while in reality you are sitting, laying or standing around doing nothing at the moment you put the ring on. While your mind is engaged with a alluring fantasy (with no possible way to break free of the spell). If the ring is removed from the user, the user kills themselves. In a funny way. Go to Comment
This is an interesting idea, slightly disturbing, but nevertheless interesting. I enjoy the idea of cute little teddy bears ramming themselves repeatedly against someone. The writing is clear and easy to read, and there were no spelling or grammar problems that I could see. congrats, Grey. Go to Comment
