I would say that the moonlight is required for the chalice to function, and Lytharian's orb would do the trick. But it might viewed as "cheating" the Silver Queen, in a sense, and would only be done if deemed extremely necessary. Go to Comment

This is really cool, and surprisingly benevolent.

This is simply beautiful -- exactly in line with my thoughts on the Silver Queen. The only part I would change is where you say that her love is "bordering on obsession". While all those who are deeply in love might be considered obsessed, it's not really a nice way of putting it . . .

A few questions: does this cup require light to work, or will it function even underground as long as the appropriate phase of the moon is happening above ground? What would happen if it was exposed to moonlight from a different source -- say from one of Lytharian's orbs? Go to Comment

Sweet, and lots of ways it could be emended for different campaigns. Love the idea of the contents changing with the moon - of course, in a setting where the planet has more than one moon, things could get really complicated. :) Go to Comment

Why so seriousss?
This carries a Joker vibe, and, in fact, can benefit from being acted out like him - a show of madness so ripe and thorough that not for a second you doubt his will to murder, his utter lack of conscience and sociopathic amusement at the misery of others.

Echo likey. Go to Comment

I like this, but wouldn't he be released from his curse the moment he meets a person who is truly chaotic evil? One who wouldn't care the slightest if everyone he ever knew was ground into dust? Go to Comment

I really like the way you wrote this, with the back and forth between the scene and the description.  



 



A suggestion:  in the ancient world sexual imagery was not consider as taboo and tasteless as it is now.  Romans consdiered the phallus to be a good luck charm, half of the cave paintings are off sexual scenes.  Their are unavoidabe sexual over tones to this work. I am being serious, the God of Light is in many ways to defined by his sexuality.  He is male and the counter part to the silver queen.  A chaste sexuality, is an important part of the Gods' ethos.   It will be hard to present and empowering staff which is both attractive and plants in those near it a desire to hold, with drawing some into making freudian connections.  Again I am not saying that was your intent, but the theme is there.  I am just saying in future works you may want to try and own the imagery of a powerful but restrained male sexuality.

An interesting item with some possibilities. The story around it could be polished up and the powers would need to be a bit more concrete.

Yet I think it's a very good seed.

And wow, seeing from the Sun's point of view, WOW!

I love both the imagery of the staff and of the Golden King himself. Is there a lore reason for the staff to illuminate family bonds? Or is it mostly just a plot device to help determine royal heirs? I also appreciate that the powers granted vary by individual -- you gave lots of good examples for a GM to draw from, but left some wiggle-room for tuning it to an individual party or NPC.

To address a few questions:

@Cheka - The toxin turns them into undead. Through magical corruption of living tissue, I would think. Their mind is damaged in the process but still works enough to move the body and such. Their souls would be subject to the same rules as any other undead in your setting.

@Mourn - The toxin acts quickly after entering their body. Over the course of a week they start to desire metal objects, finding it hard to resist the temptation to hold them and growing into obsession with licking metal eventually ending with full-blown pica, specifically concerning metal objects. By the time they succumb to the desire to eat metal, the transformation is complete and they can think of nothing else. They would be unaware of it happening.

And as a note, I am happy to announce this is my 100th Submission on Strolen's Citadel! Go to Comment

Why are they just mindless eating machines? Are their souls still in the dwarven afterlife? Did creating them shred their minds?Other then that, a great submission and very orginal. Go to Comment

Ok.... first and foremost... the Rust Monster revised. I love it. A tad bit more information about them and why they are transformed completely would be nice. Such as, when infected with this necro toxin of sorts, do the dwarves immediately become an undead stealfeaster? Or is it a gradual thing where they are unaware of the change until it is to late?

Would they slowly succumb to the dreaded desire to feast on metals? Or do they die near instantly? Just food for thought. Go to Comment
