Sounds reasonable and you do a good write-up. Once these things got found out, of course everyone would know to search there and they'd have to scrap the idea and make a whole new one... but while it lasted it would be good. Go to Comment
I like this one too. It actually gives a reason for someone to have that thing. Personally, I would make it an item that the party is attacked with. Once they dispatch the beastie, they find little treasure, save for this magical lamppost club thingy, and, of course, go to find out what the story behind it is. Presumably that would happen at Ye Olde Magic Shoppe(affectionately known as "MagiKMart" to our players), where the shopkeeper relays the tale of the Lantern Valley, and other possible hooks(rumors, etc) from that place.
(Side note, there is quite an amusing typo in the above, might want to correct it: "to CURRY favour"... I'm fairly confident you didn't mean the lord mayor liked indian cuisine.) Go to Comment
