At first, I thought it would be some sort of ice-breath hat or something, and I was wondering what it had to do with ale.
I get it now!

Good job, Saemond.

Ah, the sublime pleasure of a fresh, crisp drafted beer, pouring into a properly chilled glass mug is enough to bring a tear to this old gamers eye. The attention to the details down to the impressions in the crystal mugs is wonderful. Kudos to you good sir!

Reminds me of... I've got a nice cool Kelt in my fridge. It should not go unpilfered, I say!

Thanx, I think it is probably a good addition that anyone could squeeze into a campaign, whether or not they get the extra special variety of mugs, or even the not-as-amazing mundane crystal and stone bretheren.
In the least maybe I have made you think.. hmmn a nice chilled ale would be good right now. Go to Comment

Man oh man - where did Saemond go? This stuff is GOLD. I'm very partial to all things concerning fantasy ales, which might account for my gushing on this sub, but this is one of the most fun submissions I've come across in months. Thank god for the random sub lister!

It's a great idea, with a great description, well-written and with plenty of additional items and custom detail added on like foam over the handle.

In three words, I love it. Go to Comment

Crazy magic item! I love the backstory, Cptn's off his rocker, definetely going to use it in my campaign. To bad my players are a bunch of perverts, I already know what they're going to ask for--

'NO, you can't make every woman appear to be Heidi Klum. You don't even know who Heidi Klum is..'
'Oh, come on!'

Hmm...
Well, I'm not sure I understand the power, and the backstory is pure boring- a wizard made it. Woo.
I'll give it a...

Ah. A fractured fairtale. You have to like it. Boo to the Captain. This is the kind of item you would definitely find in a Shrek/ Princess Bride/ Ella Enchanted/ Sir Apropo of Nothing story. It is a little amusing because we know Red Ridinghood from Myth/ Grimm's tales. That makes it a bit silly. But insert the names of the person you want and it is darn fine magic item. An item made for love, for the wrong reason; will be helpful, but at the same time make a powerful moral lesson as things will of course go wrong.

The item is better suited for a story than a game, but it could make a nice addition to a game... if the GM helps set the situation up correctly. Go to Comment

An interesting interpretation of both Little Red Riding Hood, and a peculiar spin on a magic item. The first thing i thought of was magical beer goggles, the sort that would make even the crustiest old crone appear a fair and lovely maiden.

I dont share the captains sentiment of Ho-Hum over a wizard making the glasses. Magic items are going to be made aby magic users, and I think it is interesting that the mage in question made them to help his failing eyesight see his wife as she was when she was young.

As for confusion over the power, it is a phantasm drawn from the mind of the wearer. If the wearer had never seen Riding Hood, the spectacles would never show him Riding Hood because he has no image of her in his mind.

Hey, most magic items will be made by wizards, as there is little risk of Joe the Farmboy suddenly enchanting his plow. Thus, the 'wizard made it' is the default setting, and unless you want the very creation of the item to be special, assume 'a wizard made it'.

But the spin on the classic story is great! We should make more such things, like screwing up Snow White or The Little Mermaid... Go to Comment

Correct, the wearer will only see what they are capable of seeing. Fortunately for the woodsman, the Grandma gave a pretty good description of here cute little cloak wearing grand-daughter.
The magic of the eyeglasses are quite powerful though, so they may make the wearer see things stright from the figments of thier imagination to fill any unknown gaps in the illusion.

As for Capn, Sorry, my story was so Blah... I guess you don't like Grimms brother tales? or mages making magic items.... I thought about that a bit, and I am all for items being made by the energy surrounding them, or a strong willed warrior imbuing his lifeforce intoa blade, but i think that would work on items of the simplest sort of powers and would not have the complexity needed for certain things... say spectacles, or books, or whatever.

Hahah, yeah I wanted to have a little fun writing, this one up. More than anything the descriptions explain how the item works right?
I thought that i might as well add a little spice and weave a fairly tale campaign to boot. Of course it is all very loose and toungue and cheek. You don't think the grim brothers got the stories exactly right do you?
Not sure if anyone notinced but parts of the tale are in near-ryhme and meter... maybe I will tidy it up and make it more so... Go to Comment

BUMP. This is a unique piece, with an interesting comment thread. Of course it makes me also want to do a fractured fairytale of my own. Go to Comment

Well, this is quite neat. The fairy tail entrance is confusing to me - not sure if it was grandma or riding hood that got axed. I like the wizard's story best anyway. Maybe because I am old and sentimental :)
