Deck of Many Things: When a card is drawn, it creates one of several items, or evokes a change in the environment.
Deck of cards--conjuration (with a 1% chance that this is also a magical deck--this card is how these things reproduce) Go to Comment
(I have actually introduced this one into the game.)
Amulet of Cleavage: This medallion consists of a silver oval highly polished to a mirror finish. Engraved into the center is an arrow, pointing upward. When noticed, the Amulet of Cleavage reflects the viewer's eyes back at him (and also possibly the sun). Accompanied by the arrow, this is a not-so-subtle reminder that the wearer's eyes are a bit further north. Some of these devices have an inscription beneath the arrow: "Hey! Look up here!"

Since the beginning of time, Paladins have stood in unceasing opposition to the necromantic arts. Most believe these are affronts to nature and the gods, and, as such, seek to stamp them out wherever possible.
Not Sir Eggbert de Verre, however. Certainly, he will hunt down necromancers and dark warlords wherever he finds them, but takes pains not to harm their undead servants. He loathes dark magic as much as any of his comrades in arms, but for a slightly different reason- the rights of the formerly-unliving themselves.
Why, he asks, should one be forced to serve as cannon-fodder in the army of some upstart Dark Lord, or condemned to guard the tomb of some ancient king for all eternity, simply because one's rotting corpse was hauled up from the grave for that very purpose by the darkest workings of the void? Why shouldn't the unconventionally-resuscitated be left free to live out their lives undisturbed by both the cruelties of dark tyrants and the overabundant zeal of adventurers?
An unorthodox approach? Certainly. But what else would one expect from the Knight of the Living Dead? Go to Comment
Likeable chaps. You get a good feeling of their 'otherness', so important for that exotic race you need to place somewhere. Much as I like them, I would still like to see some 'bad' to them, or something to blow the mind upon. Even with the stranger parts they are in perfect harmony. Still a very good minor race.
