I have used demonic grafts in my campaign, but they differ substantially.
Your post could use some work: the process, the reason behind it, variations... Go to Comment

What I am interested in is why would you start with ONE deamon and THREE people to get ONE demon that will only last for 3 days??? What is the point of using it?? Go to Comment

I could have sworn I've seen this exact item somewhere before...

Oh well.

I don't really think there's enough variation to what happens- they become a demon, so they get big teeth and claws. A bit too cliched... where's all of the spine-flinging palm-mawed tongue-spiking demon things? The ribcage made of fingers? The eternal wailing of the tormented souls stuck in the poor person's skin?

Brrrr, low marks becuase you think it's gross Cheka....so cold.

Echo, I know it could use some work. And for that I'm sorry but I'm not sure just how I could polish this one.
As for the process, I intentionally left it out. I wanted to avoid the low marks for gratuitous amounts of information on the way it happens.

To truly understand the reasons it was built you would have to get a complete understanding of the capmain the Lucint came from. Which is a long story...too long.

As for your variations. I suppose it could just add on individual parts. Such as claws or skin, maybe teeth as well. Or perhaps it could give a man a resistance to acid if you take away the flesh additive. Go to Comment

Ok Anteaus, This is a perfectly simple idea. I think you didn't read it carefully.

Let's say your the average power-hungry-villain. Nothing to be ashamed about, my players took that role. Now, Somone had built a machine that can turn you into a demon, and grant you their powers. Before this can happen they need the flesh of a demon to do this. They also want the skin of three humans so you can still look like a human after you have transformed. If you would rahter look like a skinned demon though, that's up to you. After you go into the device, you are the one demon and have a demons powers. But the flesh they used to transform you is dead, so it will rot. As I mentioned before, it will only last for three days...and I want you to pay close attention to this part becuase you missed it before, it will only last three days unless it is somehow preserved. Either through a spell or application of the acids used to graft it onto you.

The overall point is you, or your players should you be a GM, are just normal people who kill off one demon and three humans and become powerful for a time. The flesh rotting is mostly for balance.

I don't think I can make it any simpler than that. Go to Comment

Interesting. When the amulet is taken off how long does the effect last? Maybe spells appear to work as they are meant to, in the eyes of the caster? 3/5 Go to Comment

Dragon Lord's comment on 2005-06-10 07:53 AM
Hmmm... interesting idea

I like the idea that the wearer thinks his spell still work - explains why he doesn't simply remove it

Might be an effective way of controlling that troublesome mage who's always disrupting your parties - simply give him this amulet and he is transformed into the (unwitting) court jester

Overall I quite like this one - 4/5

Just goes to show - a post doesn't need to be long to be good, just thought provoking Go to Comment

I was thinking have the effects end when the amulet is removed.
So naturally a smart man would remove it immediatly. That is if he doesn't think the spell simply failed.

Having it appear to work from the casters point of view is an interesting idea. Though I'm sure he would be a bit confused as to why an enemies hair is blowing when a fireball smashed into him. He would also look insane to his allies and enemies alike. Go to Comment

Good item. Very easy to incorporate. Lots of potential for fun. The excerpts are a really cool backstory approach. A good twist would be that the amulet makes the wearer feel more powerful. That would make the wearer keep it on longer and want to try new things with it, but a PC is likely to be mad at wasting so much effort once he/she realizes that it was a dud. Go to Comment

I have a centaur, a gully dwarf and a cat with a hammer that will be interested in this.

You have a couple of spelling issues, but a good story and a balanced item.

Heh. Sounds like the kind of item a deranged gnome would invent. (Anre't they all deranged,though?) 3/5 just for the sheer silliness of it all. Go to Comment

It's an amusing addition to a silly campaign, or one that needs to relieve tension and gloomy atmoshere.
I doubt it would be able to carry a blackpowder charge sufficient to 'blow stuff up' though - the most damage would come from the fragments of the shell and ensuing fire. Go to Comment
