Toad Oil
While it can be a handy oil to have around, the negative aspects of this oil often outweigh the positive. Intended to allow its user to leap great distances, it fulfils its purpose admirably. Unfortunately, many users feel an overwhelming urge to eat flies and other small insects immediately after completing any jump. They will also be unable to stop themselves from making dozens of superhuman leaps while under the effects of the oil. Even if they don't knock themselves out cold on a low ceiling or tree branch, these leaps leave most drinkers an exhausted wreck. Go to Comment

Potion of Pulchritude and the Potion of Princely Presence

Each a lovely golden liquid with a strong scent of mint, these elixirs taste delightful when served over ice.

These two nearly identical potions each temporarily give the drinker increased phyical attractiveness and charm. While they work well, each sort is attuned to a specific gender: A Potion of Pulchritude makes women more desirable, while the Potion of Princely Presence has a similar effect on males.

If drunk by the wrong gender, the resulting enchantment tends to turn the drinker into a hermaphrodite, with some attributes of either gender. Few find the result appealing.

Unfortunately, each of these potions has a brief "shelf life", after which, it tends to reattune itself, aligning to the opposite gender. Testing will still show the potion as whatever it was first designed to be, not revealing the error. Go to Comment

Molinar the Magnificent's Magnification Mixture

This has the potential to be a useful item, it doubles the size of anything it is poured on. Unfortunately, all means of identifying it show it to be a potion of growth, / enlargement, and as such almost everyone who finds one drinks it. This has led to it being commonly referred to as a Potion of Rampant Gum Growth, for if ingested it generally causes the imbiber's gums to double in size. Though usually not harmful, it's a generally unpleasant experience and rather gross to witness. Go to Comment

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

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
