Thus does understanding the piece require an understanding of and a relationship with the author?

Does it enhance one's understanding of the piece?

This piece deals with knowledge and perhaps truth, have you been saying to that to truth and knowledge are based upon the context?

How is context different then a paradigm? Go to Comment

One bear to bring them all and in the darkness bind them...

Nice item for a twisted horror campaign.

5/5

A well-written story, and effects, and all fits together. Good item with black irony added. I'll be more careful around teddies from now.

The only thing I sort of disliked is, that it's yet another another item that makes you go mad and obessesed with its keeping. An original 'outfit' (rings are already little trusted in this regard...), but still the same thing. 4/5 because of it. Go to Comment

I went ahead and gave this a 5/5 even though we all know that the teletubbies and barney already have this effect on anyone under 4. ;)

Good work. I love it. Go to Comment

Bizarre, dark, and slightly creepy.
Who knows what those teddy bears in the store window could be thinking?

From simple chats do scary things grow.

I may just have to take this plot whole cloth and stick poor Amy with it. This will make an interesting Christmas Episode as "This years must have" all have the spirit in them.

Really good. Seems to me it would fit in the Garage Sale from Hell as well. Go to Comment

Simple, twisted, and scary once people realize the depths of the items power.

Having this item be cherished above all others by a well known rogue could easily lead to many greedy chars attempting to steal it for themselves. "If the leader of the thieves guild value it that highly it *has* to be worth a fortune!"

I am curious though if the demonic possession of the creature makes it indestructible or if it simply teleports away when damage to itself is imminent. Go to Comment

I'm personally not fond of the item, as others have said there are many objects that drive a person mad with desire for it. It is well presented, and its incarnation as a teddy bear adds that nice creepy feeling. I do wish it weren't pink, that just screams "I have something wrong with me and you should pay attention!" The detailing of the deamon is nice as well, and actually provides some reasoning beyond "he's an evil deamon".

Regarding manfred's observation and Shadoweagle's reply.

You could indeed destroy an entire forest with little trouble and it wouldn't cost you any bows at all. You simply walk through the forest touching each tree with the arrow - no need to shoot the trees at all. Result - one dead forest.

This make the item much too powerful to be allowed in any campaign I run (or play in for that matter).

Nice back story though. Go to Comment

manfred's comment on 2004-05-31 07:11 AM
...and if you use it with a bow, you better use it fast! ;)

But such an arrow may be dangerous to the trees.You use it on one, and then on another, and another... without fire, without noticing, a single arrow may cause terrible damage to a forest, if someone is willing to use it enough times. Imagine finding such a piece of the woods, without any trace of fire or axe. What will a druid suppose? Black magic certainly. And so are the adventurers called, etc, etc, etc... Go to Comment

:) Yep. Karamus made this item for a noble cause, but that does not mean people with darker intents won't use it for desctruction. But destroying a forest is gonna take a hell of a lot of bows if it destroys one per firing. Go to Comment

lol - if it's plantlife, it will slaughter it, Echo :) So in a world with dangerous plants, entrapping vines which suck your blood and and bulbs that uproot themselves and chase you, these arrows would be quite useful. Go to Comment

True, Anonymous. But even still, a decent sized forest will take a lifetime to raze. Say one walks at a leisurely pace, and does not stop for any rests, 10 hours a day. The average person walks at 3-5 km/h so at their best, that is 50 kilometers IN A STRAIGHT LINE. If they are going to take out a small line, this would mean zig-zagging around. Forests can be hundreds of kilometers squared. It would take a lifetime to take out an entire forest. And dont think you could get 200 people to do this - there were only 200 arrows ever made and they have since been divided over the world, between millions of people. You might get 2-3 arrows, tops. The best thing in terms of destroying a forest I can think of, is that it would be good to make a small clearing (like the loggers did) in a very short amount of time, which would stop anything from coming at you from above.

Thanks for the comment, however ;) Go to Comment

Does this stuff work on treants? Shambling mounds? Giant venus mantraps? The brain-sucking tree-aliens of Omikron Beta 5? Go to Comment
