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
Very nice, I've been needing a lich for an upcoming adventure and this one fits the bill nicely. Given he is so close to a human skeleton I can imagine him posting as just another corpse in a dusty corner of his mansion, or one of the mindless skeletal horde he doubtlessly controls. Go to Comment
To have a look at Magnus's comment... I know that in most systems, but surely in the Dungeons and Dragons system, a cursed item can not be removed, unless a special spell, called remove curse is used.
Thus a player wearing these gloves, would not be able to just fling them asside, unless he could find someone to first cast this spell and then remove the gloves.
Most ROLEplayers (not DICEROLLplayers) would be quite capable in playing out the gradual change in attitude of the character.
About the item: I have the feeling that the "inside-out" part of the description does not entirely match the "normal" part of the description. Other then that, I like the idea of the gloves being worn inside out and thus having a reverse effect. Go to Comment
*claps. Very good, this is an enjoyable item that i wish i had thought of first. The players would never know what hit them, but that brings up a question. how would the gloves work their corruption through a PC? wouldn't the PC have to know that he/she is supposed to gradually acted more evil? And then, wouldn't they just be able to toss the gloves to the side. I'm sure youll be able to come up with a solution, or already have one and just havn't put it down on paper.
I personally would suggest either having the gloves fall into the hands of a close NPC, or making them have a addiction that needs a saving through that rises over time. All that put aside good job. (sorry if i seem picky but you dont get better through nothing but praise) Go to Comment
There is no reason holding them to throw the gloves away, but Magus - would you, for example, throw away A sharp-hilted sword if it were your only weapon and you were surrounded by enemies?
Its similar to my Wraith ring - you can throw it away no problem, but you would lose what power you had gained. Many people may want to risk becoming a bit bloodthirsty for that power. Some may think that they can overcome the desire for evil and try to combat it.
Things dont have to be magically bound to someone for someone to want to keep it.
The 'inside-out' part was actually something I thought of after I had written out most of the item, and I just threw it in. It would probably just be better as a separate comment, probably, but I wont bother changing it now. =) Go to Comment
Serpens Necto is a mask made of snake skins stitched together and crudely painted in white. With this on a person can bind people to their will under the right conditions. In darkness the effect of the mask is greatly enchanced by illumination from under by a candle.
