I could see some tragic hero barrelling into the close ranks of his enemy, the sky heavy and brooding. He is being battled, overwhelmed by numbers even with the booms of the boots. Then the main villain closes with him and defeats the hero. As he yanks his serrated blade out of the dying hero, he notices the shiny boots.

The next moment, a lightning bolt crashes down, killing hero, villain, and many others nearby. The event is viewed as divine intervention by the Hero's allies, inspiring them to surge forth and route the enemy. Go to Comment

Updated: Updated: I would like to note that my third role playing idea for this item would not work. The maid would have to have not only worn the item for over a week, but then the rest of the maids would have to have worked on her to get her to become feminine again, and all of this would have to take place before the Emporer put the item on for the celebration.

Well written, and sound. This is the kind of post that does make me wish I ha dthought of that. I think that the King acting like a silly maid was my favorite of the potential uses of the clasp. The religious origin of the clasps also neatly sidesteps the cliche 'A wizard made it'

Kudos. Go to Comment

LOL at the thought of the cross dressing Emperor and the haughty maid. Go to Comment

Great idea and well written - definitely gets my "wish I'd thought of that" award

Yes Nobody, I didn't think your third example would work - I was going to downgrade you slightly for that but since you noticed this and pointed it out yourself I'll forgive you

Good stuff - 4.5 / 5 Go to Comment

Outstanding. And perfectly written, to boot. Well, almost perfect... I had to get to the examples before I understood it. If you ever rewrite your submission, put a good example or two at the top to make it clear from the first. Just a suggestion.

And keep that clasp away from me! As bad as my personality may be, I don't want to take chances with someone else's. Go to Comment

Thanks to MJS for using it and letting us know how it went!

I really enjoyed the confusion I got just reading it so couldn't imagine it happening for real. I am sure we have all done similiar things with the duplicate or a dream or whatever, but this is the best description on how to run the confusion I have seen! Go to Comment

Two thumbs up. Many people list this kind of plot, but give no inkling on how to run it. The presentation of this kind of plot is key: preserving the "secret" and balancing for fairness. Go to Comment

A very good item and one that would be interesting to put in to use with the right person. Some things I thought of:
- Maybe the "evil mage" who they have just defeated is actually the evil demon twin of an ordinary mage. A prominent mage could have obtained this mirror, not knowing what it was and then, when his evil twin came out, the evil twin won. The PCs could have been sent to investigate why this formerly respected mage has suddenly started doing illegal and dark things. When the whole mirror episode starts to come out one of them will hopefully one of them will put two and two together.
- If an evil necromancer gets affected by the mirror is the demon that is created "good" (which would mean he was hated by the necromancer) or "evil" (in which case the two of them could potentially team up!)? Go to Comment

One more thing. You should only do this with a maturee roleplayer. Immature roleplayers will often be unwilling to give up that sense of control. Go to Comment

Three things. First, you should realize that the demon mirror is only the means to an end. The real reason I came up with this was because I wanted a way to hove two copies of a character, and the character not know which was which.

The item itself is very common. It is the presentation that is the key. It is pointless for example to have a clone of that person while letting everybody know who the real bad-guy is. This is the reason that I made this a plot submission and not an item submission, because HOW the copy came to be does not matter. What happened does.

As for the whole party separation thing, you could do this in somebody's house as well. I have seen a party split up again and again in a house that they happened to know was uninhabited by the host. And again, there are other countless ways to orchestrate the same effect.

Also, the demon would still be evil even if the adventurer was evil, but keep in mind that just because two people are evil does not mean that they get along. The demon has his own agendas, and on the top of his list is the removal of his clone (but only if nobody is around to see it, and only if the chances of victory are assured). So while he would fight with the group like normal, and be as useful as his counterpart (keep in mind that most of the time the same player is actually controlling him) he still wants to erase the evidence of himself being a copy.

You still have the exact same scenario, just with an evil party and an evil demon.

Or who knows, maybe you could have a good demon. You're choice. Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2005-10-20 04:09 PM
I think this is a very good plot, with the Mirror being more incedental than self important. I only say this as there is no explanation as to where the mirror came from, what it looks like, or even how it could be used other than to spawn a single demon copy.

What if more than one person looks into the mirror? Can there be more than one evil demon duplicate?

Could destroying the mirror also destroy the demon? Go to Comment

EchoMirage's comment on 2005-10-20 08:12 AM
Well, Dragon Lord, your variation spoils the main focus of the plot - the player confronting himself, and the mystery as to which of the two is which. If the murders happen, and one player was with the party at the time, it is clear that the OTHER is the culprit, no mystery here. There has to be confusion as to who is who. Go to Comment
