This is one 100 word challenge which I think would have had much more potential expanded.- at the moment it just appears to be a general thrown potion which will cause weakness and possible blindness, and perhaps suffocation.
I get the feeling that you are maybe trying to suggest that the goop is somewhat sentient/intelligent and will intentionally soak anything it's thrown at, but i feel it's not explained enough in the post.
I'd like to know where the goop came from: Is it a tar-like chemical mixture? Is it a stoppered sludge-creature? Is is a mixture of herbs/reagents?
The Vile Vial is a cool name, however! I know it defeats the purpose of the 100-word post, but more info would be awesome. Go to Comment
Now see, i read the name (great name) and figured the vial *itself* would be vile. In other words, an evil, sentient glass container that can either corrupt whichever liquid (magical or otherwise) is placed inside, or worse yet, it doesn't mater whats inside! You can throw the vile vial at a fleshy opponent, and upon breaking, the glass shards worm their way and "crawl" deep inside flesh, severing arteries and causing great damage otherwise. Later, the glass shards seek each other out again, and re-form the glass vial, complete with evil sentience again. Go to Comment
A pretty colorful flock, these guys, and not exactly sympathetic!
Given their manipulative nature and tendency not to abuse others just for the sake of it, I would imagine a surprising number of their slaves might see them as good masters (at least compared to others...). There may be even rumors circulating among the most oppressed about how misunderstood Blackwings really are - likely spread by the Blackwings themselves. Go to Comment
All magic is suddenly gone. No mage can sling sorcery anymore. This upsets all empires and civilizations. It is soon discovered though, trough the combined work of mystics, scholars and dreams, that all the magic has been drawn into a single orb in a vast tower located at one of the poles. Whoever gets there first wins the greatest price in history, access to all the magic in the world. But who owns the tower?
