That's basically the main question of the post. :)

These torches are a sweet idea. Perhaps there are a good number of torches scatter across the lands being used as prisons for water elementals that were defeated by a fire elemental. Once reunited, they could make a bid for their freedom and try to defeat him. Go to Comment

Gotta say, one good idea! I agree with ephemeralstability; VERY ORIGINAL! Maybe when using THIS torch, the PC might get a -4 penalty using it, instead of the +2. Go to Comment

Another thing,

Perhaps, if the PCs are going to light the torch, and notice they are being held back by something, they may burn the torch, thinking that its evil and out to get them. At this time, it may act like the ring of power (LOTR), and possibly control the person trying to burn it, or one of their companions, to either light the summoned torches, or stop the torch itself from being burnt. Also, when you said that the torch could control fire, (of torches) would that mean if the heros were walking down a corridor with unused torches on the walls, if the torch wanted to, the torches would light up as they walked along the corridor, and maybe light a torch that an enemy was looking at closely (ow! my eye!) , or wearing??

Very nice! Rather inventive and original idea that makes it more-than-less attractive.

Another idea is that the players find one of these that's empty and needs to be filled. So it grabs the first person to pick it up or touch it. When they do it transports them into the torch until something like a remove curse is cast on them. To the rest of the party it looks like Bob just reached down to pick up a torch and then disappeared. That would make a paranoid party very cautious around torches that they find in the next few dungeons. Go to Comment

This another fun and great magical item. Particularly for those PCs that keep super detailed inventories. They also tend to be the paranoid PCs. Go to Comment

Quite original. Somewhat fuzzy though. Where do they come from? Go to Comment

No need to quote, a question would be enough - seems I concentrated more on the Behaviour part of Appearance and Behaviour, so corrected. Also gave me an opportunity to link the subs. Thanks for the reminder! Go to Comment

This is a great one! Especially to put in a group without a cleric to notice the side effects. You could go a long time without noticing and by then....what long term effects come into play. Great item! Go to Comment

ephemeralstability's comment on 2002-10-21 02:10 PM
A dark magical item which has distinct advantages. It's the kind of thing you want to use but know you shouldn't really, and that should make for some good roleplaying. I think the uncertainty about its cumulative effects (even for the GM!) adds the aura of dark, mysterious presence. Go to Comment

Thanks for the Bump. I have polished it a little (mostly added lines for better reading), and made the most outstanding example of stats nicer. Go to Comment

I can only ponder what would happen if a priest wearing this ring tried to turn undead. Could be like something out of poltergeist, with the spinning head and all. 8) Go to Comment

I don't remember this one, so I am commenting this on anew.

Nicely balanced, a minor power with some minor complications. Actually the disadvantages can be converted to advantages in certain situations.

In many ways, this reminds me of the Magic the Gathering Cards or Vs cards that add certain Type Line keywords (make all your humans count as animals, thus subject to animal magic). That kind of "change" makes certain abilities easier. Go to Comment

When I compiled all of the ring subs together I should have read them all. This one is simple yet sinister. Similar to some of my items that have bad side effects. I wonder what this would do to someone who wore the Amulet of the Damned? Go to Comment

Apart from a minor concern with the game stats (which are not affecting my vote) this is a nice, simple and effective ring with great advantages and disadvantages.

Variations could give the wearer the advantages/disadvantages of particular undead as well (ie. Vampire)

Great job! Go to Comment
