Oh this is a good one, we get a cursed item, we get a dangerous spell, we get a gory little story, we get some NPC ideas and we get them all tied together is nice neat little bundle.    



It could see this as a plot device,



Mages are dying all over the court, some think a magical attack, others a curse of the gods (or their judgement) but it is really the pocket silk has somehow found its way to magic academy.  I picture a final fight scene on a windy tower with the silk blowing in the wind, the PCs trying to grab it safely, the vengeful mage hater trying to let it go or maybe an ancestor Mulgar.

Heh, those evil threads could be VERY handy for assassins specializing in hunting mages.

It would be worth well above it's weight in gold as it sound like even segments of threads could be deadly.

Take an arrow and wrap one thread behind the arrowhead.... Go to Comment

Wow, this is such a dangerous unsuspecting item, I really like the story and the sadness that is connected to it. But to take it apart would be such a waste, I could just imagine a great mage surrounding himself with items of interest, even those deadly to himself out of sheer bravado.
This a really great back story for an item Go to Comment

It is still a good item and can have many uses. It is an excellent item for a story to be centered around, a little less for a game, but since it is built upon "chance" it is a little fairer.

I could see this basic item in any number of settings with any variations on "what comes up". Go to Comment

it is a little disturbing what comes up in ShadowEagles pockets. I enjoyed reading the story, and the portrayal of occult creatures s being slightly more neutral, or if not neutral, more devious than most are portrayed.

Quality craftsmanship made it a strong 4.

The presentation is good as always, but this item has been seen before in other incarnations. Go to Comment

A fairly old idea and I've seen several variations on the theme (mostly in the form of coins or dice), but it is a good one.

I rate this as one of the better versions, mainly for the intriguing back-story which becomes a kind of legend of the coin's creation.

The legend of the Caves of Derri'que could well be the basis of a plot:

iAn unstoppable monster/dragon/demon/whatever is devouring the local population and/or demanding human sacrifices. The creature cannot be harmed by normal weapons, the king's armies an do no more than irritate it, and even the royal sorcerers can find method of defeating it. Only the Hound of Derri'que (if such a thing truly exists) offers any hope of salvation./i

A solid 3 because it's not particularly original, but upgraded to 4 for the solid back-story.

A fairly safe item, considering I made it, but greed can do a lot of things :)
