Tales of the Phantom Ship    Items  (Transports)   (Cursed)

Tales of the Phantom Ship

From Top to keel ablaze

It sails the wide northumbrian strait

No-one knows her name.

Tales of the Phantom Ship

It’s a ship afire they cry

Hard against the wind it sails

No-one can say why

Tracer Poison    Items  (Potion)   (Cursed)

This oily, crimson liquid is rare to find even in the more complete apothecary’s collections. It can be easily applied to any blade or arrowhead as it was designed to do so, however if consumed it will have no ill effects on the drinker.

The Edge of Torment    Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Cursed)

Some say the blade is cursed and brings despair to any who own it, others believe that it is merely coincidental misfortune.

Ruan was the first of Tarak’s troops to disappear. When it was time for him to take a turn at watch, his bedroll was empty, and tracks led away from the campsite.

Annoying Cursed items    Items  (Equipment Listing)   (Cursed)

Just a few annoying items to spice up your games. Equipment, although needed, is rarely thought of as cursed. So I thought of a few annoying, and not too dangerous ones.

Blissmort Toxin    Items  (Potion)   (Cursed)

The drink was a rare vintage with a light, fruity aroma, but one glass was not enough.  It left the drinker craving something more…

Helms Havoc    Items  (Armor)   (Cursed)

Those who wear this item are usually laughed at and scorned for its appearance at first. It looks odd adorning the head of any warrior as it always seems a little too small and its thin strap that secures it in place seems far to fragile and loose to keep it in place when worn in a melee. However, when the wake of its powers catches up to those who scorn, their attitudes and lives change abruptly. The knowledge about this helm is vague but throughout history, events of a chaotic nature seem to follow in the path of this item, sowing the seeds of disorder and discord. However it is when all four of these set items are found and placed together, does true havoc reign.

The Golden Snake    Items  (Other)   (Cursed)

For as long as there have been possessions, thieves have tried to steal them, and others have tried to protect them.  With the discovery of magic, however, the protection of wealth took a sharp turn for the deadly.  Not to be outdone, thieves learned the magic arts, and so the cycle began anewâ?¦ (History and its Patterns, Magnus Blackjack)

Claymore of a mourning son    Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Cursed)

Such a bloodied claymore has history way back through lines of father and son. In fact only one place near the handle still holds a metal tone, because of a magical barrier, and it has ingraved in it words that forever speak out to the swords bearer. Those words, like a guilty memory, can never be forgot.
“Thou who shall kill a sons father, shall then be killed by a fathers son.”

Inheriting

       By: manfred

An old, misanthropic and paranoid man feels his time is coming. There are sons to leave his fortune to, but they are not worth it, not a dime do they deserve! And he doesn't really trust anyone else. And so he has made a decision: as a part of his last will, his henchmen are instructed to burn and destroy all his holdings, buildings as harvest. The lands shall be auctioned off, the proceeds used to pay the servants. Nothing shall stay behind. Nothing.

Depending on the status of the grumpy old man, this weird occurrence may be only a family drama, or it may end up bringing an entire region into chaos. Or the son(s) have found what should happen, and want to prevent it before their sick father dies.
