I would comment, but I'm far too busy trying to stiffle a good old-fashioned belly-laugh (I'm at work y'see)

Wow - these are excellent messed up items! I like them. I've got a codex (Faulty Potions) which is similar. Go to Comment

The Chariot of Pharaoh Hethshepoth
This ancient chariot was recovered from the tomb of the ancient Sallvian Queen, Patletep I, by Agarn's second apprentice, Holgrim Doomgull, shortly before Holgrim was crushed by an overlooked trap in the tomb. Its original enchantment magically transformed any draft animals hitched to it into powerful, perfectly matched horses. Agarn was able to expand this enchantment to include other sorts of animals hitched to it, such as housecats, stray dogs, and unwary apprentices. The enchantment doesn't provide any magical training or compel obedience, so Agarn was not able to successfully pull the chariot with transformed housecats. His results with apprentices were not altogether successful, either. Go to Comment

The Falchion of Al Gojj
The stout weapon that later was associated with the homicidal Sallvian holy man, Al Gojj ("The Malodorous"), was a bronze blade crafted in the XXII Sallvian Dynasty. Originally wrought by the Eunuch-Priests of the Vulture God, it had been enchanted to strike with extra force at enemies of the Sallvian Pharaoh. Agarn added to this enchantment, making it nearly unbreakable, even able to cut through modern steel armors without damage. More recent wielders have noted that if an enemy can be tricked into saying something negative about one of the Sallvian Pharaohs, the weapon's enchantment will awaken and it will strike with tremendous power. Getting a foe to generally criticise Sallvian personal hygiene or cooking appears to be equally effective and is perhaps less difficult. Go to Comment

The Agate Pectoral of Vetthes
This handy item appears as a substantial (8 lbs.) golden necklace styled after the ancient Sallvian vulture god, Anut-Kahnut (the older vulture god, not to be confused with the more modern vulture gods that became popular dieties after the XXII Dynasty). The massive piece of jewelry was enchanted by Agarn at the request of the notable collector of antiquities, Vetthes the Corpulent. The enchantment placed on this item allows its wearer to be clearly heard by anyone that has clear view of the wearer. A magical phrase in Ancient Sallvian allows the wearer to turn the item's powers on and off. Unfortunately, since nobody alive is able to successfully pronounce this mysterious phrase, the necklace is generally considered to be permanently "on". The ancient spell that Agarn cast on the necklace is believed to have other, more potent, abilities, but the tests to determine how they work were discontinued after Alain Piercetongue, a mage who was considering becoming Agarn's apprentice, was inadvertently transformed into an undead monstrosity while experimenting.

The Ardent Ungent of Ix
This potent curative paste immediately relieves headaches or muscle soreness, but also temporarily blinds the recipient to the flaws of those around him or her. While the ungent does not make the subject more amorous by itself, it makes lines like "Hey, Milady, I've got some lovely etchings up in my chamber," sound like witty repartee to the subject. An unfortunate side effect is an tendency to stain the subject's skin bright orange, so most alchemists stock up on facial cleansing cremes prior to offering Ardent Ungent for sale. Go to Comment

The Flaming Banner of Collot
This impressive battle flag appears to be aflame; it gives off a cheerful light and pleasant warmth. If its original enchantment had been completed properly, it would have had the power to project a potent blast of flame dozens of yards. Unfortunately, the protective enchantments constraining the flames were never properly completed, so it instead blasts everyone in a 15 foot radius, including the wielder. Heavily armored warriors with a lot of burn cream stocked up have been known to use it anyway, but few heroes are quite that masochistic. Go to Comment

Oudall's Transmigration Powder
This silvery powder allows one to spontaneously transport himself a distance of up to seven miles. It requires total concentration; any distraction while the powder takes effect and the destination will be somewhere else entirely, generally somewhere that he has been recently. The famous enchanter Oudall used this powder regularly to facilitate quick escapes, as he had an unfortunate preference for "dangerous" liaisons. He was studying Agarn's research on the topic in hope of crafting a staff that would fulfil the same function when his research was sadly cut short by an outraged husband. Inadvertent overdoses of Transmigration Powder can result in "flashbacks" weeks or months later, where the user teleports unintentionally. Go to Comment

Powder of the Acidic Blast
This nasty material was an original development of Agarn's. When thrown, it transforms into a caustic slime capable of burning through stone, wood, or iron. If the spell preparing the substance is not completed with perfect attention to detail, the slime occasionally animates and pursues its wielder, but it is fairly slow moving and can often be outrun.

Oil of Rugosity
This potent agent can be spread on the skin to make the recipient nearly invisible. Unfortunately, continued use causes the user's skin to develop hideous lumpy growths. Agarn's apprentice Tolly Weevilban discovered this in an early stage of testing, but was fortunately able to find work at a traveling circus after he fled in terror from his master's plan to excise the offending growths with a handy battleaxe.

The Violent Sandals of Golan
These handy items were actually first developed by one of Agarn's most gifted apprentices, the fire mage Golan Rumsath, but were completed by Agarn after Golan's unfortunate mental breakdown. Prior to his paranoia overtaking him, the man had devised a pair of sandals that would enable its wearer to deliver devastating kicks. Unfortunately, Agarn was not able to eliminate the sandals' tendency to kick out at any mages that pass near the wearer. Although he was not able to determine why the footwear displayed such violent tendencies toward mages (especially older, more experienced wizards), he was able to discover that they were actually more damaging when they struck at wizards than others.

An okay character. On its own, it is just another spy; along with the location, he is a part of the mosaic that defines the place... giving it more importance, as it hints at what kind of people will find their way here. Not special, more of an addition to a larger whole. Go to Comment

The write up is again, nicely executed. The character is not as interesting, as we know nothing of his existance in his "real life". That element is missing on the character.

Sure nobody in the market and poor places will know it, and perhaps not even in the nobles corners, but the GM needes it to portray the character carefully. Go to Comment

Not bad, but the ending felt abrupt. Now I am curious to know about what happened between the Queen and her guard (Okay, so I can kinda guess ;) but I am left wondering how he found himself living among the criminals and vagabonds. All in all, not a bad piece of work. Go to Comment

It sounds like I'll need to add a little bit to this one. I couldn't let poor Chivver languish without a real life... Go to Comment
