Did anyone ever think to take the ring off, or did the mage live alone?

This might be a warning for players to check out magic items before just casting them about, but any party should be able to take care of anyone putting this on.

That doesn't mean it doesn't have uses. It'd be a great way to subdue a person for capture. Leave the ring for them to find, or as bait for pick pockets, or even present it to them as a token of respect. They put it on, and you have instant passivness from tweedle dum.

Other possiblities exist... Go to Comment

Neat item for punishing criminals, assassins and rogue mages. Their sentence could be a preset amount of time wearing the ring, though I can see the local law 'forgetting' to take the ring off of the fingers of convicts when their time is up. Go to Comment

Badly presented-but a good basic idea.It could be used to force unwilling women (or men) into marridge, in culutres where divorce is not permitted.Great for making sure the wedding is not messed up. Go to Comment

Hmm, a bride as dumb as a cow during a wedding could be rather disruptive, as only eating, sleeping and other things would occupy her mind. Might make a rather memorable wedding. Go to Comment

Hmm, being a little generous with a 2.5, but not quite as bad as a 2.0.

This one could easily be salvaged with just a little work. Spell check, a little more detail would easily push this into the 3 range. Go to Comment

Sure kill weapons really don't leave a lot to play with. A weapon that never misses isn't that fun.

I love the background on the creation of them though but the actual weapon itself needs something that makes it more real and fun to use in a campaign.

Instead of always hitting the heart, I would say a more feasible power for them would be the ability to penetrate armor much easier then any other weapon. Perhaps it can go through chain mail like nothing and only is slightly slowed by plate, a minus to the damage. The accuracy should be left to the skill but the power the weapon holds should be more appropriate. The holder could also be protected from the dragon's breathe weapon, or perhaps the weapon itslef has added damage of the breath weapon of the dragon or something. Go to Comment

I agree with Strolen and Captian, and I have some of my own observations to point out.

How much of a threat could this dragon be if he can be killed with throwing stars?

How mortally wounded could the mercenary be if he was assumedly far away throwing shuriken?

How can a mercenary in possesion of throwing stars that never miss the heart ever be in such bad times he needs to sell said throwing stars?

How mortally wounded can a guy be when he can still manage to skin and masterfull carve a dragon's skull?

This is an interesting, but illogical and broken item. I do not like it, but I DO like the original thought put into it. A little less munchkin, and a little more thought into character's abilities, and you could make a great item. Go to Comment

Where to start?

Flinging a 10 inch star would be a good way of avoiding those nasty mortal injuries.

Shuriken are not 10 inches across, large ones are typically 4 inches wide.

Shuriken cannot be used like daggers, they have no handle of which to hold.

Please try to draw your inspirations from more than Final Fantasy video games. If you come across an idea you like, do some research into it to find out what it's about. Google is your friend.

There's no roleplaying in this item.

It's no fun to roleplay when you can defeat any enemy simply by throwing these shuriken at them.

This is a power gamer's item, plain and simple. I'm sorry. Go to Comment

You better. If you never punctuate or capitolize, even if you hate it, you won't get as good ratings, no matter how good the item is. Go to Comment

Actually, Ylorea, I believe the idea was that the shurikens were magical, though he never actually said that in his background. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2003-11-01 03:43 AM
Shuriken are balanced throwing weapons. They are effectively balanced, round throwing knives. In terms of distance and power, in the real world, they function more like thrown items than missle/ bow weapons. Note:they are much more accurate than most thrown weapons given their aerodynamic profile. You can also "chuck them" with no accuracy a much farther distance than a normal thrown weapon (knife, axe, bola) kind of like a frisbee.

Gash: Capitalization, Punctuation, and Spell check. Type it in with upper and lower case. At least look over the post before you submit it. Go to Comment

Ylorea's comment on 2003-11-04 02:01 AM
As far as I can see, a single shuriken is not going to kill most characters. Even if the thing always hits, it still is not a kill item in a normal D&D setting.

(damage = 1d4 average hitpoints for a commoner is 1d8)

Even if the shuriken would ignore all natural, metal, wooden and leather armor, you would need quite a couple of these to kill a decent sized dragon.... (20d12 hitpoints I think) Go to Comment

I don't think exactly agree with CaptainPenguin, but you really should be a little more explanatory like Strolen is suggesting.

Conceptionally a great idea, if I can, I'll put it in my game! Go to Comment

Pieh's comment on 2003-11-05 10:08 PM
Ok. So a guy kills a dragon with little tiny throwing knivesand gets horrible messed up in the process. He then hauls his bleeding ass to the nearest town that just so happens to have a mighty spellcaster in it (How else could they have been enchanted in this way?). How do you live for months when your mortally wounded? How far away was this town if the dragon was detroying towns "faster than lightning strikes" (and i assume the dragon would attack all nearby tows first)? Why was the dragon attacking? Was is bored? Dragons arent mindless destroyers, they attack for a reason (as far as I know anyway). This item makes little to no sense in a realistic light. If you fixed it it might be better.
P.S. - HOW THE HELL TO YOU CARVE A DRAGONS SKULL WITH A SHURIKEN? Go to Comment
