It all depends on who is going to be in posession of the drinking horn and of course if your players are willing to roleplay.

Now I have a couple of characters that would like to drink ale every night and they don't mind playing out the consecuencss...

If I remember correctly, there will be a fortitude save involved that gets more difficult every time you empty the horn.... If not, I will invent it and who ever failes the save, will have a nice long lasting head-ace or other faith that has to do with being drunk. Go to Comment

The horn will turn saltwater into the finest dwarven ale That line says it all right there. Great little item.

I'm giving this thing to my recurring dwarven sea-captain npc, Qroth Saltguts, captain of three-banked drommond, Qysa's Tomb. And I thank you for unearthing this. This may sound like a silly comment, but I love my dwarven sea-captain, and this thing is *perfect* for him to own.

Finally a practical use for magic! Enough with the trapping somebody's soul in a golden crystal or the summoning of powerful demons: a man needs a drink. Of course with this horn you'd be counting your coppers for a block of salt instead a flagon of wine. Go to Comment

I, too, have some players that would love to have this item and would roleplay it. Think I'll let Brunor the Dwarf hear about it; he'd be off like a flash!

What about one that would also make Elven Wine, or other fine drinks, according to the imbiber's preference? Go to Comment

Probably be more used as loot the players find. Then when somebody notices them wearing it or carrying it they could get into some trouble. Go to Comment

Well, I guess that at that point, the citadel needed posts.. Go to Comment

I like the description of the armor, but you should give more rich detail of the back story and the motivations. Go to Comment

A minor piece, but this could certainly be the hook for a larger adventure: "So you say you found this armor in an Orc hoard, eh? Well, I might be willing to go easy on you if you take care of this little problem I have with the kingdom next door. I can't get involved directly, you understand..."

Nice item. Could be a spring board for similar types or armour and maybe shields. Cheaper ones could only absorb up to certain levels of spells or only certain types of spells. Go to Comment

Interesting, but no.
Poor backstory, the powers seem very arbitrary. Why does lightning strike an evil wearer.
Below average.

I would tweek and tune the armor a bit. I personaly feel that the armor should not be able to hold protective spells for instance, but just things offensive spells for instance.

Besides that, even good characters may want to bend the rules, so they could be punished as well, at least according to my interpretation.

All in all it is a nice item though and I think I would love to see a roque use it ;+)) Go to Comment

I liked most of it, with the exception of the very last line. I got a good visual of  Huran and his armor, his precious armor. However, I don't think his dying words would be enough to add a lightning strike. Especially dying peacefully, but not all tales need to be tragic.. Solid submission!

Hmm...as a thought, perhaps instead of it being ensorceled as a gift, perhaps it aquired that ability thanks to the act of Huran. I remember us discussing such things before. Go to Comment

After reading this, I wish I had read it years ago.  I had an item similar to this in campaign I ran in the 90s Imperial Nomar Bracers.  It was armor that stored spells for later use, and changed color when it was charged.  What I like about this post is that the description was much more direct and straight forward.  When I wrote up the item for this Citadel I really struggled with how to phrase things like



 



when a spell is cast at the wearer the armor sucks up the spells affects and stores them until the wearer directs them somewhere else.



Its metal takes on a silvery glow when it has an absorbed spell in it, 



This post re-enforces the importance of simple straight forward phrasing.



Except for the last sentence, which just feels like it was tacked on as after thought by somebody that wandered by the computer terminal.

A decent item. Axlerowes is right on with this one.

As for a penalty while charged, the armour glows visibly, though not enough to provide real illumination.
