A unique sort of item with a nice twist and good backstory. Two thumbs and a tail up. Go to Comment

I like it. It's a lot of work to put into a house-building hammer, but maybe it was a big ceremony and a historical peace between the races (I mean, to be a great hammer, and also magic to make it ghost through people.. the second part of that isnt trivial) Go to Comment

A good item with a nice dwarven feel, though I think dwarves should not make a hammer that could'nt mash orc heads. Go to Comment

A good item. Solid history, double edged effect, not overpowerful. Very good job!

Of course, those same friends would probably end up being considered spineless cowards for protecting the imbiber, holding back, and showing prudent concern. Go to Comment

Heh. Yeah, only the desperate or those with no sense of smell/taste can find it in themselves to down the goop.

I think this potion really helps explain the kick-in-the-door munchkin play-style. You know, where no matter how many times they kick the door in only to find that the door was trapped, or they woke the sleeping troll behind the door, or whatever else, they keep doing it, blindly charging in until they get killed.

Another item I like. It is a nice story that properly explains a basic magic item. This twist is handy, balancing the power of the item.

I love that you have to find your courage just to drink it.

We forget how important the fight-or-flight reaction is. When you've got fight or fight some more, there's a problem. Go to Comment

Excellent - far better than the usual generic "potions of courage" and a worthy addition to any world. A PC who drank this (if he role-played well) would cause great difficulties to the party as well as advantages. Go to Comment

I like - a good solid basic item with a believable backstory not too powerful and with a nice little drawback to balance it out good work Kassil 4/5 Go to Comment

Great potion!

I can't imagine anyone surviving this for long without protective friends.

*looks up from his new "Eyesight Abnormality Table"*

I can definiatly see this becoming really addictive, especally in the hands of elderly royalty. Another potential drawback would be that illusions would now be seen with perfect clarity, and since nothing has shadows now, would be rather hard to discren.

I hadn't considered the assassin side of it, actually. Hmmm. And since very few people have true 20/20 vision, the first part would be of benefit to just about everyone, however minor the enhancement.

Given that I concieved of an wrote this in the 20 minutes right before I left for work, I think I did reasonably well, though... Go to Comment

And Silas: Yeah, that would be a whole new world to your monk - as long as he was touching Whiteblade, he'd be able to see perfectly. Could be... Addictive. Go to Comment

Rural Mystery

       By: Murometz

The PCs are making their way from village to village across a rural hinterland, when they spot a weird sign along a farmstead's fence, with an arrow pointing to the actual farmstead.

"CRAZY DANCING HOES!!"

If they investigate, a rather sedate local farmer, explains to them that for a mere two coppers, they can witness the show for themselves.

The show involves six ordinary, animated hoes "dancing" on a makeshift stage, as the farmer accompanies them by slapping his thighs to keep the beat, and playing on his flute.

If asked how the trick is accomplished the farmer demurs, not wanting to share his "secret".

"If you can get Old Man Purkiss to tell you how he gets his cows to spout poetry, I'll tell you how I make my hoes dance."

In reality, this minor encounter can lead to the PCs discovering that some localized, magical effect is active in the area. All kinds weird phenomena seem to occur in these parts.

Perhaps the PCs have finally found the ley-line of mana energy that they have been searching for! The party's wizard gets excited.
