A very decent followup to Scrasamax's work. I'm kindof stuck in the detail of it all. I'm sure I'll be reading both submission several times before using them. The flavor is just so unique. Go to Comment
This was very clever -- it artfully showcased another author's work, while expanding it in a creative and useful way. I hadn't read Scras' Gems of the Underworld yet, and I may never have found it without this piece, so thank you! The only minor suggestion I will make is to preserve the order of gemstones that Scras laid out in his piece, for easy reference. Here you have Xerle and Faridat come after Pirozeh, which was kind of confusing. I'd also put the inks last (or first). Well done! Go to Comment
A great expansion of Scrasamax's Gems. Very useful. I could easily see the typical servant of Hell sidling up to someone and saying something along the lines of "Havin' problems with the ladies, eh? Well, I've got this spear that might help you with that... it'll cost you, though..."
Overall, it was good. Good items, though I do agree with Dossta. You should probably keep you item's gemstone order the same as the way Scrasamax had his. Or convince Scrasamax to have the both of you go alphabetical order or something. Go to Comment
This is a fun item, and with plenty of use! If a PC was willing to smash his teeth out he could keep these in their place. Next time he was put behind bars, he could eat his way out! They could be used to get through walls if you're patient enough (and can open your jaws wide enough to get some good starter bites!) Also good to get rid of incriminating things; Eat the dagger you just used to assassinate that councilman!
In fact, there are so many uses to this item!
- chew through chains
- 'beaver' down some trees for construction
- Eat bone or wood for survival when no other food sources are around
- It it molds things as though they were wax consistency, they could be used to flatten iron for specific uses by chewing on it.
The list goes on!
Also, it seems to have all the necessary information for a 100 word sub. Nice one, Val. Go to Comment
Dentures are not, in fact, anachronistic, and could be found in some form in a fantasy setting. With the high availability of magically strong metals dentures of a quality rivialing modern dentures could be produced. In earth history, there are articles stating that they have been found thousands of years BC, and in some cases, even fanged dentures may have been used. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2006/06/060614-oldest-teeth.htmlGo to Comment
