I too noticed the similarities to Gollum. Though they do not seem to detract from the sub. Anyway, it is well written, easy to read. I especially like the part about the giant spider (By the by, why did the food start dropping? Did the spider make his web stronger?). The part about cannibalism actually reminds me quite a bit of Lovecraft, particularly The Shunned House and Rats in the Walls. Over all, great job! Go to Comment
Tootheye - a single tooth, polished into a small ball, so that it is unrecognizable where it came from. It is a detector, allowing its wearer to feel all the toothed creatures within ten feet. The small radius still allows to feel some surprises, if you ignore dead bodies and any companions around. Don't forget the many things without teeth.
Toothache - the badly rotted tooth must have been torn out by a dentist. Crushing it will give your enemy a serious pain, multiplied if it is his tooth. Curiously, the second effect applies also to the undead.
Toothfree - this magical accident, a small medallion, will affect its wearer's emotions to other people. Those with better teeth will be envied, those with worse teeth will be looked down upon. The name comes from the effect of those without any teeth: they will appear completely mysterious and fascinating, be they mundane or even senile grandpas. Go to Comment
