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
Exactly. It is no more accurate then the original archer, and with a cumulative penalty to hit it should miss quickly. That it cannot distinguish allies makes it dangerous at short range, since the archer could potentially qualify as target.
Not sure how true to the spirit of the 100 word challenge it is to clarify in comments.
Cool little idea. Kinda weird that the targets after the first one don't have to be in a straight line -- it just functions like Chain Lightning, from what I understand. Scary self-guiding arrow is scary. Go to Comment
Rather than secure it on a finger, perhaps you could slip it on a toe and forget about it; let the boot hold it in place. Also, just under some gloves. It would be useful facing off against large creatures (such as giants etc) who may use you as a projectile against your will.
Nifty thing, val; you've been very prolific of late!
I like these 100 word subs. Go to Comment
Brilliant! That rarity...super-short, but GREAT! The comments are good too, every one made me nod as i read it. Makes you immediately think of uses/abuses for this beautiful item. Forganthus sums it all up nicely with....Ring of Epic Badass!!
I have to ask, since no one has...what pray tell is the origin tale of this thing?! Go to Comment
I would be very picky on the term projectile, so simply falling/ jumping would not count. You have to be fired or thrown.
Depends on how rules-lawery you want to go.
As for securing the ring, sure, but don't forget :)
My intent was basically up to and including the impact, the wearer would be uninjured, even if he hit the tip of a spear or the like. Once they stopped moving, subsequent damage from the locale- acid, fire, dragon chewing, would then apply. Go to Comment
