Corran's Potion This potion usually allows the imbiber to create one mundane item out of thin air. When diluted, flawed, aged past prime strength or otherwise dampened, such an item will suffer from one of various effects:



 





 



 











































1: Explodes on use

 

2: Brittle

3: Turns to dust after a few uses

4: Ineffective

5: Malfunctions

6: Exceedingly Heavy

7: Miscolored

8: Makes SQUEAK SQUEAK SQUEAK Noises upon use.

9: Insults players when held

10: Insults NPCs during important conversations

11 (Shield Specific): Sings "Hit Me Baby One More Time", "Hit Me With Your Best Shot.", "Never Gonna Give You Up", and "Pain" in combat.

Potion of Ironhide

Every alchemist will at some point have a student who believes that recreating simple potions is beneath them and will take it upon themselves to improve potions in the hopes of impressing their masters. This potion was intended to be a Potion of Stoneskin. A wayward student decided that iron was stronger than stone so would make a much better defensive potion...
When consumed it causes the skin of the drinker to absorb iron from the surrounding environment, forming an external skin of iron over their body. Were this a Stoneskin potion, the external skin would protect the drinker from harm but would also remain malleable. However this is not the case with a potion of Ironhide. The iron skin is capable of withstanding a considerable amount of damage, but it is solid. The drinker is unable to move until the effects of the potion wear off. Go to Comment

A really interesting article with some great ideas attached. Perfect for any DM to spring on those poor, unsuspecting player characters. Go to Comment

Fantastic work. The only thing that can be done to improve this piece is to add about a hundred more of these, right now! Go to Comment

Ouch. Now that is a bad bomb if I have ever seen one, and nicely disguised, too. At least, I would think that it takes great expense and a lot of time (and magical power) to create, so it is not going to be produced very often. Still it is a dangerous toy.

Plot hook: one major bombing like the above was successful, the knowledge spreads quickly, and everywhere start people in charge getting concerned about possible security risks. If a rumour of another prepared attack gets out, people may start to panic, and act really weird around chainmails (or any armours, actually!). This may even lead to a rapid dislike of chainmails.

Interesting piece. Did not really need the story, but it is a nice touch.

Does any other mage know how to make these, or are they only the work of one man (so once he is dead, these pass into history (or do soon after)? Go to Comment

Another great item iwhished i ad thought of it. I can see an evil empire outfitting some of its men with this, mixed with regular armor, and programmed to go of if they try to surrender to the rebels... Go to Comment

"and the assassin will have no problem handing over his weapons at the door..."- nice!!

This is weird, I again loved the effect/power more than the history, just as I did your last item, though the history is good. I think it is more a nod to the armor's ingenuity! I love it because of all of the possible applications in game-play it conjures up. Nice work valaddar!

A suicide bomber, minus the suicide. :P Go to Comment

Any specific suggestions on the histories? The LongSpear had a different style (mythic) then this one and I've been trying out a more technobabblish one here.

The histories are what I've been trying to develop for these submissions and admittedly they need work. Go to Comment

Heh, you should see the Platemail version.... :)

Yes, these items are generally one-off constructions. They are very expensive (that is why the target in the backstory was a king) and need suprise to be effective. Once mages know what to look for, these suits lose their effectiveness. Go to Comment

Heh, some people complain if there is no story!

In any case, I would let the GM decide on how well they are known. Their power is increased by their rarity. In this case, only Kagerith knows the way to make these suits (he has apprentices, but he is jealous of his secrets, so they only know part of the process). If his written works were stolen, then other mages could carry on with production. Go to Comment
