thank you for answering most of my questions. But just one more question, but it requires some unpacking.

Talking about these fantasy things are something I enjoy, and in asking question I more wanted to see your vision for the object not my vision of what the object could be.

"If it can't it will arrange for you to be drafted/ conscripted into the army. If it can't, it will arrange for your neighbors in the inn to be noisey all night so you can't sleep, so you will be sloppy in your next fight. And remember, it controls those gifts. So if it doesn't need you, you don't get any of those magical benefits. (Or it will given them to you, then take them away when it needs you to die)."

This answered my question very well, but you started the answer with

"This is simple logic. If you had read the powers, you would of seen the ability to manipulate the minds around it."
You suggested that I failed a test of simple logic and then that I had not read the description, characterizing the person you were talking to as irrational and ignorant.
So here is my next question.

Why do you enjoy or feel it necessary to make such prefaces to the answer?

But again on the whole I enjoyed the answer, and thanks. Go to Comment

An interesting item, with even more discussion added to it :)

Hey Moonhunter,

So I have only given 1s or 5s with the handful of votes this site has seen fit to bestow up this little troll, but this one left me with a real sense of "eh". I mean, I guess this is cool, the PC can talk to the sword and gets +3 (whatever that means) to his/her AC. But really can't say much about it expcept "eh". Have you game tested this? I am out of votes for the day.

Don't do it A.R.

Every message board has its bully and you can't win. You can't make rhetorical points and ask them to be nice. They are the master of the board. I have trolled enough boards to know. This is his turf and if wants to imply that you are ignorant fool he can do so with impunity. The other members of the heard will not come to you aid otherwise he would have left long ago.
Just remember this:
winning an argument on the internet is like winning a race in the special olympics. Even if you win you are still retarded.

Let it go A.R. Let it go.

The Orb of Corvin

MoonHunter's comment on 2005-07-13 01:39 PM
Thank you. I think.

The Orb's location is dependent upon your campaign, so place it where you will. It is probably in the hands of some uber mage known for "doing the world good", kind of like Gandalf. Of course, this item is not "famous", nor publically known. So the Wizard gets all the credit, even though the Orb is doing a great deal of the work.

If you are looking for the other crystals/ orbs, then click on the Wizard Corus link above to see them all. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2005-07-14 08:50 AM
The intended magics for the Orb were the same as it manifests now. It allows a wizard to scry anywhere in the world where there is trouble and cast spells (which are enhanced in power by the item) as if you are there. This allows you to deal with "trouble" without having to leave home. Corvus was a home body after all.

The other part of the write up which you are commenting is the generic addition to all Orb Posts. It also lists the implied powers, in this case, the nudging of minds to perform certain tasks and the more universal orbs being able to interfere with each other's magics. Go to Comment

Monument's comment on 2005-07-14 04:14 AM
Personally, I would have preferred a more complete description of this ONE orb, what were the intended magics for this orb? The only reason I ask is because I read this site for ideas, and this one seems to need a little more fleshing out before I can use it for MY purposes, which is to pick and choose the best ideas and throw them together in my own special way. ;)

Overall, pretty good, if a bit incomplete. 4/5 Go to Comment

I know there is a similar posting, but this is part of a set of postings. Heck, these items have inspired a whole new fantasy world for me.

Yes. It inspired this entry. However, there are a number of differences, plus all the linking to Corvus and the other items (most especially the Orb). Go to Comment
Corvus

Strolen's comment on 2003-10-17 05:04 AM
Why did he live for so long in the first place? And is anybody sure that he really did die in the voop? Perhaps he is still alive, finally driven over the brink of madness because of the voop and now wandering without knowledge of his past years but somehow with the skill of enchantment still active. Perhaps he is still creating on a lesser scale somewhere without really knowing what he is doing. He could be creating some even wilder magic that only a very few scholars would recognize as his work. Go to Comment

Almost abandoned it as one of those over-powered characters. But as a background... good!

...source of items of immense power, but all are somewhat quirky. A good trade-mark, and history. If you find something powerfull, you almost immediately expect there is a catch to it.

Maybe, it was not a single wizard, but a group of them madmen, this detail was just lost through the centuries. Would explain how a single man could create THAT many items. Go to Comment

Where are all the Orbs gone, where are they...
I remember well the hours spent tinkering and chatting about just one topic, the Orbs and their interaction. Fond memories.


(Side note: You can create a Scroll for the minor orb items. I remember we have created quite a few back then.) Go to Comment

Maybe this site is so advanced that it can SEE INTO THE FUTURE, and it knew you would make that comment before you even did yourself. Go to Comment

This is definitely one of the Citadel's best post-clusters. While Corvus himself is bland, the sheer volume and variety of Orbs makes him worthwhile.

MoonHunter's comment on 2003-03-24 06:14 AM
I also assume that because of his madness he discovered a way (a technique or process) to create items that no sane person would discover. He could probably kick out an item that would take others years, in a week or two. And he did have 800 some odd years to kill. Go to Comment

It also does explain the reason why the items are not always "right"... it is a side effect of his process. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2003-07-31 04:25 AM
That is a good point. Other than the round lake where his tower once was (voop), I had not thought of any other impact. I guess the people in this area of the world would be excellent glass blowers and crystal workers. Corvis is not quite in the middle of nowhere, but you can get there from there. Perhaps I better make a land of Corvis. Go to Comment
