Awesome. It reminds of Brave New World-from their synthetic birth to the fact that their personalities were implanted in them to fit their role in society. Go to Comment
Synths
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (Any)

This is awesome. Indentured slaves, made to order, wedged between robot and man. And the idea of talking to a branded Coca-Cola man is pretty good, too. Great flavor. You've left me to speculate on their psychology, though. (What do they do for fun?)

A couple of thoughts. If they all must be paid enough to have a fair chance of buying off their contracts, the 4yr synths must make a good amount more than the 40yr synths (10x the discretionary income).

Second, the Dolly Effect sounds like the short lifespans that somatic cell clones have. These are caused by epigenetic effects (activating/inactivated 'tags' on the genes) and telomere shortening. I can imagine both of those problems being solved in my lifetime (well, maybe not dynamic epigentic imprinting), but definitely before we have terraformed planets hundreds of years in the future. If you want something to kill your synths with, I'd go with cancer. Overactive telomerase is how cancer cells don't die of old age, and nearly everything that speeds up aging/growth can be teratogenic. There's a lot of thought that we evolved old age as a defense against cancer, actually (our own form of planned obsolescence). So yeah, cancer.

Sorry for the ramble! 5/5! Go to Comment

Crystal Armor: this miraculous translucent armor will protect you from the very first blow... when it falls apart into a lot of shards. Given time, it will regenerate.

Horn of Call: those listening to the Horn, and especially the one blowing it, will feel the Call of Nature. Go to Comment

At the culmination of a great quest bestowed by Gerat Deity to find the "roots of stones," the players discovered a pile of rocks that recited cheerleader-type chants ("G-R-A-N-I-T-E! Granite, granite, allllll the WAY, HEY!").

Thor's Hummer - artifact car that adds lightning damage to everything it rams and has a bonus against giants. And it returns after being thrown.

This will make an appearance in a Scion game I run or maybe an Urban Fantasy Game. Go to Comment

Dollar Ninety Five Cent Staff, like a Quarterstaff, only better. However, shouldn't that be a buck-and-a-quarter quarterstaff?

Ho! Ha ha! Guard! Turn! Parry! Dodge! Spin! Ha! Thrust!

Sproing.

You know this item is actually a +5 staff, that requires you to take 1d6 subdual every three attacks. Go to Comment

Borrowed, but really deserve a submission

Dust Bunnies - small magical creatures that inhabit dark places (dungeons, behind the chamberpot, under the bed, etc.). They survive by eating dirt. When they get too large, they split into two or more smaller bunnies. If struck, they explode into a cloud that causes all nearby to sneeze uncontrollably.

I've had also had Spitting Images, Roaring Acclaims, and even Rogue Waves (water elemental).

Some characters. Sure they are not items, but they are funny. Okay, you know you had one character in your group when you were young that had one of these naems.. you know it.... admit it...

Sir Cumvent, known for his ability to outmaneuver his opponents on the field without ever being brought to battle.

Sir Tenly, the Priest of Positive Thinking.

Sir Osis of the Liver

Sir Cumspect, the wary knight

Sir Cular, who ate rather too much.

Sir Loin of Beef.

Sir Pluss, he always gets left out.

However, his rather charming and romantic brother Sir Duce, you may be better acquainted with.

Their cousin Sir Fary, seems to be perpetually off hunting.

Sir Not Appearing in the Adventure, who is always mentioned, but never around.

Queen Aurala of Aundair recently knighted the most sucessful agent of her majesty's espionage service: Sir Veillance.

Hilda Thunderaxe vowed to remain single and often ridiculed couples as they left the local chapel. She was one Critical Miss!

The knight who spent his entire career fighting orcs....

Sir Cumcision - because there's no end to those pricks. Go to Comment
