This one doesn't bring much excitement to me. The power, as great as it is, is appropriate for a godly artifact, but more could be made of its insidious effect, and too many details around it seem obsolete or unexplained (what would be the targets of such dagger, what boon can be gained for following the rituals, and what is the goddess actually like?)... well, maybe it's just not my type of items. The basic power is okay though. Go to Comment
These daggers seem well-suited for a secret cabal of assassins. The method for creating the daggers is interesting and well-detailed, and they have enough mythic background that they could be easily inserted into an adventure.
The background described is meant to match the Dungeons and Dragons goddess Wee Jas, "the Stern Lady". The background given fits well, but the idea of a disease-causing dagger seems more suited to a god of disease and decay than a stern goddess of death and magic.
I could see a party finding one of these, and then being confronted by different groups that want the sacred item returned to them. The assassins that originally possessed the dagger would want to recover it, while less bloodthirsty sects might request it as a trophy of their triumph over one of the dreaded assassins.

Ouch. Morbid and highly disturbing, which is saying a lot coming from me. I like the fact that they go after vulnerable mothers. Could lead to an interesting investigation case, assuming the little monstrosities depart to wherever they came from if they're not caught. It would also be interesting if the PCs came upon a crazed mob about to burn what appears to be a helpless baby... Go to Comment
Creepy, Disturbing, and lots of fun to torment the world with. It would be fun to let them be a baby (and look a bit more baby like) for a while before their eat the heart. That way, you can't be quite sure if they are a demon or a baby. They could snack on the woman.. draining her of warmth and vitality first. Perhaps even snacking on other members of the family before... the killing begins. Go to Comment
wow, I have to admire the true evilness of this creature, though I don't think even I am mean enough to throw that at one of my groups. Although I still think that I might use it as a rumor that my PCs hear about. Go to Comment
The PCs accidently start a fire and are caught by the local law enforcement. Since it was accidental, the punishment for the PCs is to fight the fire. Providing they can put it out before it burns down the town, they will not face any further punishment.
