Hmmm, I think you better be extremly carefull when applying this oil. If by accident you get a drop of this stuff on your hands, you can mold your own hands and we get.....
This gives me a great idea... some oil and fifteen soldiers... Smear the oil on their sides and you get like a unbreachable human barier of fifteen man wide. (Make sure you leave their arms untouched, so you have thirty arms on this wall.)
On a more serious note. I like the idea and the possibilities. I also see the drawbacks, so I better not give this item to my players. They would undoubtetly get themselves in trouble. Go to Comment
I am a sucker for alchemical and herbalistic stuff. I am a sucker for good ideas. This is both. 4.5/5 rounded up to a 5. I do not think ideas and concepts like this necessarily needs a thorough background as it is not a unique item. Go to Comment
its a really good submission i can see this being usefull, as it has its drawbacks as well as its good points.
what if someone accidently gets some on themselves?, will they stay the way they are moulded for ever or what?
all in all a very good submission: 4.5/5 Go to Comment
What about the 'original' Storm God? Does he take lightly to this impersonation, or is he amused by it? Or perhaps, he does not exist (being merely a personification of storms), the Globe just filled this vacuum in power?
Well so far the real diety has not smitten down the globe. maybe he likes what the Globe is doing, making the Druids a stronger faith. Maybe he is admused that his followers are so gullable that a magik item can fool them. Maybe he is so pissed that he has effectively abandoned them to their own devices.
In my mind, the world has Gods that are far removed from the tiny world or are nothing my semi-mystical constructs of belief... being nothing more than a foci for magik). so there is no God to be upset about it.
This is a very cool item. I think the wonderfully annoying nuances of the thing kind of make up for how powerful it is. The only thing I would dispute is protection from cold damage. I would say cold would do extra damage. When you can do 18d6 damage, what more can you really ask for? :P Go to Comment
Nice item, although a bit more powerful than I'd like. One way I might scale it back a tiny touch would be to give it a healing abliity. What? Yeah, a healing ability. When a character takes a large amount of damage or otherwise acquires a "bleeding" wound, the ring caduarizes (sp?) it for them to stop the bleeding. It deals another point or two in the healing process, but does stop that blood loss. To make it a drawback, the ring will heal EVERY wound inflicted, no matter how small, if the ring is NOT placed over the wearers heart when he draws his weapon.
