One thing I'd point out is that if Red Mui'aan is a fungus, it is NOT a carnivorous plant, it is a fungus. All fungus are carnivorous, or at least heterotrophic, unlike plants, which create their own food, so it is a double fallacy to call Red Mui'aan a "carnivorous plant". Go to Comment
I took the liberty of making a background/description of the Mui'aan fungus, as I thought I should try to make a bit of an explanation for the bloodlust created by the metal. Feel free to make suggestions/alterations/inclusions. I hope this is how you envisioned your metal, Silas. Go to Comment
Here is another thought on what could happen With Imuricum crafted items, plus an addition to this item:
Dormant items - These items are crafted using Imuricum for the superior quality the element gives, but they are are not drenched in any blood.
And example of what could happen because of this?
An Imuricum breastplate could be worn for months, but then during one particularly bloody battle, the blood of a goblin is splattered all over it. Some days/weeks later (the heat was the catalyst of the blood soaking into forged Imuricum items), the owner of the breastplate may feel the urge to hunt goblins again... Go to Comment
Ha! First, thanks for the compliments :) And to answer your thoughts - The element only absorbs the blood of the first creature that touches it. So someone with the "Blade of the mad", for example ( http://www.strolen.com/items/viewitem.php?item_id=286&offset=10&order=updated&dir=Desc&index=1 )
could kill any type of creature he wishes, but still only want to attack humans. Go to Comment
A thought on "pure" Imuricum. Make Adamantine Imuricum alloy. In my world, Adamantite can be sharpened to an unbelievably sharp edge, yet it is very brittle. An Adamantine Imuricum alloy would prove to be just as sharp, but exponentially more durable. Go to Comment
Make bracelets, armbands or chokers: Drench them in the blood of your enemies, then put them on your favorite shock troops (including captured enemies). Spread stories of the magical boost to ferocity, and soak them in blood for a long, long time - then your enemies will wear them as trophies if they kill your shock troops... Go to Comment
Wow, I can't believe just how far the conversation's gone on without me! Oh! By the way, the is Silas the Destroyer, back from a VERY long hiatus. Well, hopefully back... My last computer bit the dust hard and its been THIS LONG since I got the thing back up and running! Well, I hope to be seeing a lot more of you all! Go to Comment
Every fantasy setting needs mysterious mistlands, where people can get lost in search of treasure. Undead and a potent curse are of course a bonus. I would see powerful wizards in want of such a means to protect their mansion... not necessarily with the curse of course. Go to Comment
