The Orb of Corvin
Items  (Wand/Staff/ Arcane)   (Sentient)
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

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.

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

I thought about the impact this one man could have on a world. Especially given the legacy of the Orbs. I have been tinkering with a world where you would have epic forces in conflict, with Corvis as part of the back story and that Light and Darkness are now in a clash... lead by two orbs.

For those who don't want an epic campaign, Corvus is an excuse for having thousands of magik items spread randomly all over the world. The Voop dispersed magik items everywhere in the world 1300 years ago. Go to Comment

Several of the Items would of assisted this. Silver Star and Staff of the Black Magi do come to mind, but there could of been others. Go to Comment

He is the central hub of a number of items. Each item was created by him. He is known mostly for his Orbs, but he made a few other things.

He has multiple metagaming purposes.

1) The Voop is an excuse for magic items scattered about the world.

2) The Orb theme allows for easier creation of notable magic items. See Swords. Why does it always have to be swords? artictle.

3) He adds versimiltude, as the Great Mage made most of the world's great items. See a magic orb? You know Corvus probably made it. He adds to the history of the world. It is nice to actually know who created the big items.

4) The Orbs themselves are also Power Players in the world. These powerful immortal items have their own agendas. Their presence shapes the world. This can be used directly, or as an example for hower powerful things shape the world. Go to Comment
