Excellent idea, nicely put forward and described. Also like the comments after, taking the name and using them to identify other items which makes it all that more 'real'. Go to Comment

Did not did not feel that they would warrant a full fledged post but here are your Cambor Horses. LOL Ya'll had to see this coming.

Along the dirty litter strewn streets of Cambor can be found the most lowly of all the equine breeds. The Cambor Horse. Which in and of itself is a generic term for any half breed horse or old broken down tired working animal.
The Cambor horses are all small in stature, the largest being around 14 and half spans of a man's hand in height. Each Cambor horse is unique it's own way. Each one has horrid conformation with at least on glaring conformational flaw. That may be congenital or inherited through injury and neglect. They are the dregs of equine society, each one only a step above Orc food or buzzard bait. Most of the Cambor horses were born to substandard mares who were work animals themselves. However occasionally a once proud and strong horse who has outlived his racing or hunting days or who has been injured beyond usefulness will find their way to the back alleys of Cambor.
Sprinkled among the longears of the half-breeds are a few of the once proud Calcobrinian hotbloods who have fallen from grace and now find themselves reduced to a draught animal. I once heard tell of a great Calcobrinan Racing stallion who fell in a race who ended up pulling a butcher's cart laden with pig carcasses until the day he fell dead in the streets of Cambor's hole.
One look in the eye of a Cambor horses eye will tell the story of a fall from grace, or a long hard life of toil and pain. Of the endless cold nights without shelter and the blazing hot days pulling heavy burdens.
It is not uncommon for a Cambor horse to fall prone in the traces of his harness while pulling. The lucky ones are dead before they hit the street. A dead horse is fairly common along the cluttered dirty alley ways of Cambor's hole.

All of Cambor's horses seem to be have a sucked in look to them. They are a hardy breed by necessity. Grain is scarce at best in Cambor and none can we wasted on a creature as lowly as a horse and fresh water is unheard for unless you hold your mouth open in the rain that rarely falls.
Sway backs, bucked shins. Poorly healed cuts, scrapes, lacerations, and gouges streak many a dull shaggy coat on Cambor's streets. Feet are cracked and chipped and have grown so long if they haven't broken off completely that they are beginning to turn up at the ends. manes and tails are sparse and thin many being plucked nearly bald to use the hair in sewing. The eyes of a Cambor horse are dull. Long forgotten, or never known are the pleasures of green grass and freedom and kindness. Go to Comment

I guess that I have a soft spot for downtrodden communities of "Les Miserables", but I really like this. The various bits of jargon cry out to be used in a game.

I am not as impressed, but then again Gurps has had meta-magics since edition 1.0. Still nice components. Go to Comment

Pele's Hair
This long filament, only found near active volcanoes is a valuable though delicate and hard to harvest spell reagent. If used in the casting of fire based spells, the spell is affected as though it was Quickened

Dragon Spice
A dried and powdered extract refined from the lairs of dragons and sometimes taken from the mouths of dead or dormant dragons. Can be used to replace ANY material component in a divination spell, effects fire spells as per the Maximize metamagic feat, and can add the Fire subtype to any other basic spell. Go to Comment

Black Lotus
This very rare blossom can replace any spell component in any spell! If used in conjunction with normal spell materials, it can add the maximize, enlarge, or pretty much any other metamagic feat. Competition for the blossoms is staggering considering that sometimes a blossom can be easier to get than the fang of a 1000 year old dragon, or a 10,000 GP platinum mirror blessed by the Sun's Bride.

As a side note, doubles the potency of any age restoring spells, and potions of rejuvenation or youth. Go to Comment

Demon bone and Angel Feathers
These two components are very very difficult to obtain, or at least they should be. Using demon bone in any spell give the spell the Evil descripion, thus a fireball spell using demon bone would be a fire/evil spell and work as a maximized spell against good aligned foes.

Alternately, an angel feather used in a spell would add the good/holy description to said spell. This would work as a maximized spell against forces of chaos and evil. Unlike demon bone which can be given or taken by force, an angel's feather can only be given, a stolen or taken feather turns black and brings ill forutne to the thief. Go to Comment

I think you missed the point. I am not familiar with the GURPS system, and was only intriduced to in game meta-magics with the DnD 3rd ed. The real point here was not the meta-magics, but the use of material components in magic to simulate said feats, and by expansion change the list of material components from a set in stone fomula to more of a recipe. The listed components for a spell would be the bare bones required, while other items could be substituted for others for bigger, better, louder, or more colorful spells. Go to Comment

Unicorn Horn
Also known as alicorn, this was a popular cure-all or panacea in the dark medieval era. While claims of authenticity are dubious, and most actually came from rhinocerous or narwhal tusks, in the fantasy setting, this powdered alicorn could be used in a spell to maximize the effect of any healing, or curative spell cast by a nature aspected magic user such as a ranger or druid.
