This bespeaks a bit of Final Destination where death itself causes random almost innocent events of chance that cause the most horrific ends. Wonderful item. A tad bit interesting and flavorful. To bad it usually ends up in death, I would make it not so detrimental unless kept for a very long time. Perhaps the random accidents get increasingly worse the longer the item is used. All in all though I liked it.Go to Comment
I agree with Mourngrymn.
As for its detrimental effect for PCs, I have a couple suggestions directly tied to the blade:
1.The blade simply refuses to be unsheathed at a rather inopportune time.
2. If the PC is falling or tumbling, the blade unsheaths with obvious effects.
3. If the PC is sneaking successfully, the cane gets dropped - loudly.
I don't think a misfortune field about the wielder fits with the idea of the item.Go to Comment
