CaptainPenguin's comment on 2005-05-28 11:17 AM
I fail to see your reasoning.
Why would it be in bad taste? They are absolutely demonstrating through magical means their innocence in the matter, and they aren't actually killing themselves. Even a religion with prohibitions against suicide would have nothing to fear from this, unless the person wasn't actually guilty, and then it would be a holy execution.
Or am I totally off-base? Go to Comment

The story meandered a bit. Nicely executed, but needs to be tightened up some. (Sorry no pun intended). You might want to take it to a fiction site and see what advice writers might give about it. Go to Comment

To be honest, I need to print it out and go over it in text to review it as a piece of fiction. That is why I suggested a fiction writers site... they do that as a matter of course. Go to Comment

So I had a question for everyone here.

Knowing that if you were innocent you would willingly put the noose around your neck to prove it. Even though you know your innocent and you will not die (hopefully) would that not be a similar act of suicide?

So, would a priest or a Paladin or Holy Warrior of the church put on one? Knowing they were innocent, but by placing a rope of execution around their neck would that not be seen in bad taste? Just curious. Go to Comment

Edited some for content. Thanks for the compliments. I was worried about this one as it was difficult for me to bring to life.

Dragon Lord :
The item is very unique.

There could very well be other items of such history created. This was actually a dream I had which I fleshed out into this.

The other item in question (Pueola Demuet) is another such unique item whose origin can be linked back to the Gods. Which is being detailed as we speak.

The Gods have tried not to become involved with the mortals (in my world) on too many occasions but there are some items that have been created for special events, heros, kingdoms, and even by accident. See Pueola Demuet for a good example of an accidental item created by the Gods. Go to Comment

I see your reasoning behind that. I was under the outlook that by physically putting the noose on, regardless of it's intent was an act of self harm, even though they willingly know it will not hurt them it is still the act of it that should be seen in bad form.

I was thinking that one of the two listed archtypes would demand the use of the noose to prove any innocence yet also degree that by being judged and having it put on them would clear them of any guilt at doing so.

Just my thought. But that is why I asked. Go to Comment

Your a level 2 right now, put in enough submissions and add enough content and you will be level 3 and then you get one HOH a day.

Thanks for the compliment. This one was special to me for a while. I spent a lot of time and put a lot of effort into it and it came out far to large. Go to Comment

Without the backstory this would be a pretty mundane item. The history behind it makes the item as the item doesn't do a whole lot. But thanks for the vote and the comment. Go to Comment

Dragon Lord's comment on 2005-05-23 08:24 AM
OK - rambles a bit but I get the idea

That having been said, nice backstory and a good explanation of the items' power - I quite like the idea that it operates as it does because the gods intervened and deemed that it be so.

Question: Is it unique or are there similar items elsewhere?
Also: Are there other unusual items created in much the same manner?
And: Might not other items have a variety of diverse powers, depending on which of the gods created them, what the god in question considers important, and why the item was created?

There could well be an entire subject (or at least a subset of the general Magical Items subject) to be explored here.

Good solid item - easily worth 4/5 in its' own right, but I'm upgrading it to 5/5 because it's got me thinking Go to Comment

I think CaptainPenguin has it close - in fact I would go further

The paladin/holy warrior type might actually demand the Noose of Redemption, seeing it as true Divine Judgement and therefore, by definition, infallible Go to Comment
