I like it, a magical item that, while pretty damn attractive to use, has enough of a drawback to make people not want to use it. Also, it's got enough legend in it's background to fit in a low magic world.

Questions, though.

What is the fail safe? Do they die if they wear it too long, see something so horrible that they go mad, does it just stop working, does it give them false information, or what?

Also, can they only wear it for thirty minutes total, or thirty minutes at a time?

Is this something that you could have on your person without being activated?

Does the penalty only kick in every time it's activated, or every time you take advantage of the benefit, or is it a steady drain type of thing (as in for every X minutes you have it activated, you age four years)?

What effect does this have on races/particularly powerful people who don't age like normal people (elves, sentient undead, high level monks in the D&D system...)? Go to Comment

Okay, do me a favor, will you? Will you hit edit submission, scroll down, then start reading what you wrote OUT LOUD. I want you to insert all the words that you missed, then I want you to correct all the wrong words you used. You should have to read it out loud about three times.

Then I want you to run the spell check.

Then we will try this again. Go to Comment

This is a really good idea wrapped up in some crappy writing. If someone hasn't shot your last few English teachers, someone should think about pulling their tenure. Go to Comment

Its fail safe is that It stops working after 10 minutes. But the user can Re activate it

The second its activated it takes the 4 years from you, you you mine as well use it while you got it.

It won't activate ^^ for people who don't age, or die by old age. It needs your life force to activate, and in people who dont age, there is no life force.

A person can have it with them without it activating. Go to Comment

Well, if you edit it again, I'll hold my vote off until then.

Currently, the english is rather bad, and I'd want to know why this particular Sphinx's death put out the gods enough for them to intercede. Go to Comment

Perhaps placing this back into your "in work" area and giving it an over haul grammar/wording wise would be good. (btw is English not your primary language? if not that explains some of the problem)

It has promise but needs a serious over haul. Nice try so far though, give it an edit and I'll happily re-vote Go to Comment

It's definitely a good try, and its fairly creative, but it needs a lot of polish. You really need to spell out the effects more. What if you use it for 30 seconds? Does it still take 4 years, the same as if you used it for 30 minutes? Seems like it would be better as a gradual thing, as in you age a year for every 30 minutes, expressed as a rate instead of a flat number (which equals 48 days per minute, or .8 days per second - Of course you could adjust the rate to clean up these numbers, if you felt like it.) And yeah, it also seems like immortals (or those with really long lives) would get a lot of benefit from this item with little to no sacrifice. If this is not the case, specify that the rate depends on the creatures lifespan, or that it won't work for immortals. Thanks.
Edit: Plus, the grammar and writing style needs a lot of work, too. Go to Comment
