I would think that those already in great harmony with their bodies - trained martial artists, for example, might be able to adapt to the changes faster.
I'm not bothered by the time required - one can easily adjust the time to match the benefit.
It is far more dangerous then a potion of haste - it appears to be a permanent change. Personally, I think that even once trained, there is bound to be mental strain that will cause long term issues.
I've never even *heard* of that series, though that's likely more the fact that I never watch TV and only rarely see movies more than any obscurity of the show in question.
Thanks; I saw a lack of modern entires to the Quest, and then what with it being OhGodHundred Hours in the morning, this bubbled up from a memory of a story I once read about a gun that kept pointing at the person who had murdered the gun's owner before eventually going off and killing him.

The gun demands respect, as a thing unique to the world. And as a weapon of Vengeance, it made sense that it could claim vengeance when not given the respect it deserves. Glad you appreciated it. Go to Comment
I rather suspect that at least some of the people hunted down by each of Nightfall's wielders will feel that they were innocent, in some way, to whatever wrong the wielder desires vengeance for. I think that if each and every victim knew they were guilty and deserved this particular fate, Nightfall might let the wielder live - but then what of those who knew the victims, if they felt wronged by having the victims taken from them? It loops back to the need for vengeance, and so the legacy of self-destructive revenge continues... Go to Comment
This is a great item. It could be used for a Pulps or Supers game (SuperHeroes/ anti-heroes/ and so on). It works for a modern horror game, if the wrong person is touched by it. It is a total Urban Fantasy piece, magic touching the modern day. It just works.
I would throw all these freetexts on it, just so people could find it. Go to Comment
I think that there we find 'modern' magical items so rarely here is that because the items are familiar and close to us, and being near, they are not things of legend, the way we expect magics to be. Go to Comment
Excellent! You have your very own Quest niche here
When the quest of vengeance is done, however, Nightfall demands a price - vengeance for each of those murdered by the wielder. Guided by the weapon's will, each user almost inevitably claims his or her own life
Very nice. Simple, brutal, and makes me want to use it (And I dont mean /use/ it. Well, you know what I mean) :) Go to Comment
I really like this. Modern but still rooted in a historical context, unbalanced creator, item with a personality. It all comes together perfectly. I find myself really wanting to throw this into a game... Go to Comment
