You know, for an added silly effect (as well as more usefulness), it could be enchanted to deal large subdual damage if whacked upon people. While an old gramp hitting people with his cane tends to look laughable, it may be an excellent weapon of protection. Go to Comment

While ironic, I did not need the creator of the cane to die for this item to work for me.

I would think that this would be a "common item" something any mage might make (though they might put it in a staff). This kind of item could very happily rank up there with charms and little hexed talismans for "every day" items. Go to Comment

The idea is wonderful, pragmatic, and practical, complete with a suitable dash of irony. Unfortunately the sub is short, but I guess there isnt too much that can be written on this one.

good job. Go to Comment

I concur – the sort of basic item that would almost be created sooner of later

A good solid background item – 4/5 Go to Comment

Interesting piece of irony. A solid item, though depending on how it's used and the exact nature of the benifits, it could become either an enhancement of a good character, or another tool to be exploited by a bad character. Go to Comment

yep, I can see something like that too. Maybe one more quirky "power" or "nuance". Go to Comment

An interesting piece.

Subtle and handy, useful for those mages recovering from grevious bodily injury as well.

Remember what the elders said: a good source of proverbs is always handy for giving flavour to a game world, or simply annoying player characters with. Old people have always words of wisdom for the younger generation, pity they seldom listen to them.


Nice scroll! Go to Comment

I've put the 101 freetext on this, since it applies now. Glad to see it grow!

Aside, is there any interest in a 'fortune cookie generator', that would produce random pieces of wisdom from this scroll? Go to Comment
