I suppose this might be a bit unfair, but the first thing that came to mind when I read the title of this submission was the material of the same name from the US Final Fantasy 3. While it didnt have the dichotomy between good and evil, it was something required for spell casting. Not bad, but not exceptional either.

I would like to know where it comes from, and how it functions in a supply and demand situation. I'd also like to know where it is found, if there are places that are richer in ot, or places that are depleted. Go to Comment

I like it. How about a game in a partly worked-out mine of this stuff? Go to Comment

It's not bad. Knowing you've never played FF makes me somewhat forgiving on this, but it sounds a lot like materia as introduced in FF7. I personally find nothing wrong with the name magicite, though (didn't play FF3). The good/evil stuff seems a little illogical (to me, substances are a media and have no innate good or bad, it is how they are used that determines their worth), but I'll wait for you to flesh that out before judging. Good write up.

EDIT: Thaumatrium sounds even cooler. Go to Comment

Having no familiarity with FF 1, 2, or 3 whatsoever, I kinda like this. Its different from the type of stuff I'm used to. Interesting mineral. Go to Comment

Updated: Sigh, a simple Google search on the term "Magicite" would have saved me some embarassment. In any case, the new name has 0 hits.

This material also provides no mystic knowlage and has no elemental ties. Go to Comment

I'll give it to you folks on the name - it's not terribly original. Whne I have it more worked up, I'll use the name(s) used by the dead empires that used it.

Never played any Final Fantasy however, but I will change the name soon.

Now, the idea behind this is as Manfred pointed out - it is meant as a historical item otherwise you would play a (very)high-magic.
Perhaps with timetravel..:)

As to why it is aligned, that is a deliberate mystery, but does tie to its origin.. Go to Comment

Still need to revamp, especially since its creation has been changed in a certain PBP game... Go to Comment

Hah! This is my kind of nasty thinking. Nothing like having a little fun with alchemy - I have a feeling this will be a favoured scroll for a time. We do need a little siliness now and then. Go to Comment

Potion of Bodily Energization

This may happen to older potions of healing or others modifying body functions. While the original effect still works (but may be weakened, or even a bit stronger +/-10%), the imbiber will feel warm and a bit disquieted. Further, his skin will strangely stick to itself (so hands put together will hold together, and basically any of his bodyparts touching by skin). The effect is by no means strong, but still very disturbing. The hands etc, are easily pulled apart, but it takes a tiny effort.

The effect wears off after a few minutes. Go to Comment

The imbalanced healing potion

This one is a classical healing potion, as good (or even slightly better) quality as they can get. However, a glitch during manufacturing or a strong magical field caused it to have an imbalanced yin vs. yang ratio. Therefore, while the potion will work perfectly, it will only heal the right, or the left side of the body (with most damage being external that can look strange indeed - half-closed wounds, scratches absent from one side, etc).

Imbibing another potion that is oppositely imbalanced will make everything normal (too bad this can't be detected in any way). What the effect of more potions imbalanced in one way, or balanced potions will be, is at anyone's guess. Go to Comment

It has been reported, that a sufficiently aged Armourskin potion of this type will lose the itching property. Unfortunately, it will lose even more of it's potential... while the skin will be harder as intended, it will not be bendable anymore, resulting in a comical state of near-paralysis.

Seriously, check the expiry date of this one. You don't want to drink it in a really tight spot... Go to Comment

Venus's Lovejuice

-Drink this in front of the one you love and it will make her love you

This potent potion works for several hours at the time.It does it's job well-it makes the target fall in love with the drinker of it, but at a cost.For a number of hours it makes the drinker look and act like the target's ideal love intrest, unable to refuse what he/she wants. The drinker is aware of it, but unable to control his/her own body Go to Comment

Silvertounge Serum

Gives the user the power of an orator, able in the right circumstances to woo great crowds to do his or her bidding. The downsides are that after a couple of uses it becomes addictive, giving the person nausea if it is not taken often enough. It also fills the user's mind over time with thoughts of conquest, slaughter and genocide. Go to Comment
