Its things like this that after reading it I wonder why I didn't think of it first. This is marvelous. I can see having on of these fall into the hands of my group and watch choas ensue if it fell into the right persons hands.

Question. What happens to the stone after one person gets aclimated to it? Does it still function? Or is it's properties only last for a certain period of time?

I realize that you said you can find them but do their properties last only for a set time? Like if one person wears it until they are completely changed, does it use up the power of the item? Does it work for two or three more times or is it perminent?

Just asking. Other than that I would say 4/5 Go to Comment

Theriothropes of the world unite!

Actually do these stones grant spiderman/ super level powers or just slightly better than human norms and maybe some special abilties just beyond the norm?

So a world with Aspect Stones should be filled with races of LionMen, TigerMen, GazellaPeople, EagleMen, and dozens of other avatar critters?

Wouldn't the items be rare these days because the stones were made so long ago? Have the technique to make them be lost to (insert disaster) long ago, and they are reminants of the forgotten tribal past. Maybe it required the hand of the old tribal gods long ago. Go to Comment

The symptoms and the death of the mages would have been big news through the magic community. The great Mage of Mulgar's tower dead and then the falling of six more powerful mages practicing the dark arts would be big news in the world.

When another plague-like death of a wizard crops up an enterprising person may take that opportunity to explore the reasons. Not being a mage, he has some safety. Over time investigating a few things he finally figures out the cause, it is an item that got transferred from one mage to another.

A robbery, pickpocket, or murder later and the inspired 'bad guy' has the possible makings of a dangerous weapon, something that will open doors for him.

Now, how to use it. All he needs to do is test the items on a few lesser known mages so he can figure out which is 'The One.' Once he has the plague causing item identified he can put his plans into action. A simple handshake is all he needs.....

------

Could be political intrique, struggle for power, working as an assassin for hire, or any number of things.

Pretty darn interesting item! Go to Comment

The answer to that, Dragon lord, is in the first sentence:
"Splayed across the table in the center of the mourning room, lay the corpse of Alarimis - the great mage of Mulgar's tower."

This plague was exhumed from the corpse of a mage, and as such, it only effects magi.

I am impressed by the subtlety displayed in such as item. So much destructive power created by a display of remorse and perhaps a gesture of atonement.

Very good. 5/5 I really like this nasty item, and the fact that it only harms magic users. Go to Comment

Nasty - very insidious - my evil little GM mind is already working overtime

Love the back-story, particularly the ritual nature of the magic (very atmospheric) and the mistake in the chant

One thing I don't quite understand - Why does it only affect mages? Is it a disease or a magical curse? Or is it something entirely different?

Anyway - excellent post - 5/5 Go to Comment

Dragon Lord's comment on 2005-03-15 08:49 AM
OK - makes it a magical curse (sort of) rather than a normal disease - on that basis it seem logical enough

Thanks for the clarification Go to Comment
