Yummy like pie. I love this, it'll fit well into my world where many people seem to find happiness in slaughter. Maybe give it to my lawful pain in the butt palidin, see how long he can stand up to the temptation.

What would happen if Jack himself put it on though? Would he decide to just go downtown and kill as many people at once as he could before he got taken down or what? Go to Comment

Gem of Xzar

MoonHunter's comment on 2005-08-25 08:44 AM
This is one of those items that actually does more for a campaign being a legend than actually being an item. The quest for, the possible threat of, rumors searching, and other lines can be spawned by the mere existance of this item.

Plus it adds a nice bit of flavor to the worlds mythic times. Go to Comment

Dragon Lord, this is an item that is to be kept out of PC hands at all time. It is the threat that this item poses that is the motivator. If your PCs are the ones looking for this item for their own personal power... perhaps they are no longer the protagonists/ good guys of the story... and perhaps another group of adventurers will be hired to take them out and reclaim the item.

The post specifies that it's his heart. (Emeralds are sometimes confused with beryls.)

I love the story(See MH's comments), but I think the McGuffin could be a little more interesting in and of it's own. Such a tremendous item might well be /heavily/ imprinted with its 'creators' meta-physical essence, and the emotion of the event - items like this need to be awesome reminders of what created them, in my opinion.

I agree with Moonhunter's assessment - I believe it would be a little to powerful for use in a conventional roleplay, but perhaps a mention in a myth could spur all sorts of side quests. If anything, i'd say it's a campaign starter. Go to Comment

Dragon Lord's comment on 2005-08-25 08:57 AM
Great myth - brilliant read - but it doesn't quite explain what the Gem is - was it part of Xzar or something he owned?

The Gem is a little munchkin-like for my taste. Let's face it you could level a city with thing, which is WAY too much power to put in the hands of any one person (PC or NPC).

It's not often that I find myself scoring low on one if Scrasamax's posts, but this time I feel I must. Basically this is just the fantasy equivalent of the H-bomb, with only the backstory raising it above the mediocre.

So - 3/5 (sorry Scras, you can't be perfect all the time) Go to Comment

OK I misread that bit - the comment regarding its munchkin-like properties remains valid though Go to Comment

A great mythic piece. As for the power of the item the description is suitably vague as to its effects as to render that argument somewhat overwrought - the GM can easily tune it.

Is there a secret society codex yet? :)

A museum of creatures of sorts. Wonder if they would give tours for the right price to the right clients? Cool! Go to Comment

This one works for me. I would of liked more description of the building and grounds, just so I would not have to adlib things. However, it is still functional for me. Go to Comment

It just wouldn't do for the founder of this great institution to lie mouldering in a box buried in the ground. Much like Lenin the elders are preserved. It also facilitates necromantic magics as having an intact corpse generally makes summoning a ghost much easier. Go to Comment

Why? He can levitate the chalk, and has a pointer in the middle of his face. Also, quite a few of the female magi will be virgins, so where is the problem? Go to Comment

I like this. The building itself is hard to imagine, I was thinking of perhaps a domed Stone henge at first, yet it bloomed into something far grander than that.

I like the hidden cellar of sorts that house the preserved bodies of creatures for study, very dark occultish in a school with good intentions. I like this. Go to Comment

So many idea seeds come to mind from reading this. Will definitely be using it. In a way, its complete, but I cant help wanting to know some more about the place, as Moon mentioned. Having trouble picturing the Unicorn conducting class, but thats just me :) Go to Comment

What a nice reminder of a truly magical item. This little toy can go from nearly unimportant to seriously impacting a campaign with marvelous ease.

Imagine what happens if a particular deity would become addicted to it. Of course, easily resisting the feeble spell of a mortal, but hopelessly falling to the item's purpose and unimaginable complexity of the puzzle that he/she would find. The consequences may be dire (god of the underworld not guarding his domain, etc).


I really like items like this. Go to Comment
