RPT Quest: Magic Items

<< < (2/5) > >>

Pariah:
Now, going with the pure idea that you were trying to bring across I have no problem pumping out an interesting item in 3 minutes or less, the problem is to make it presentable as a submission for this site, which would take quite a bit longer.

Example:
Name: Plague (~15 seconds once I thought of the power)
Appearance: A short bladed knife with a ebony handle, the ancient dwarven rune for plague is carved into the handle. (the knife is a puukko to be more precise) (~30 seconds for appearance, 3 minutes to find the word puukko, because I'm slightly OCD...)
Benefit: +1 (couldn't help myself...), Makes wielder invisible to the mindless undead, deals death/negitive energy damage (1 minute)
Benefit/Drawback: Anything killed within 3 minutes of being cut by the knife rises in 15-20 seconds as a zombie. (0 seconds, this was actually the first thing I thought of...)
Lore: One of a set of seven knives created by an omnicidal, dwarven cult of death and destruction and stuff.  Six of the seven (GASP!) members were killed by a wandering group of adventurers and never heard from again. (~20 seconds)
Twist: 7th member escaped and rebuilt the cult from the ground up, when they realize the adventurers found one of their knives they will stop at nothing to try and get it/any information the adventurers have about where they found it and any of the other weapons. (40 seconds while getting another drink)

Which comes out to a grand total of 2:45 for a fully functional item, the problem being that I wouldn't feel comfortable putting that up on the main site as is, at least not by itself.  It'd fit in a 30 magical knives of magicalness submission, but not by itself.

I've got one of these in work - to this level.

Its in work cause I can't get a good summary yet :)

I don't see a problem with the short sub since its part of a quest and might break my logjam of too long subs in work :)

Good call, Pariah. I did not think of that.  :?

Dossta:
As a random aside, I was poking around with Seventh Sanctum's magic item name generator and found it to be . . . less than ideal.  Most results are senseless or unusable; some are average, very few are decent/good.  Still, I thought I'd share some of the more humorous ones with you all :)

Mystic Throwing Knife of Lizard Seduction
Howling Pin of Seek Ogres
Lotion of Stability Deflection
Yellow Tower Shield of Sludge Alteration
Shoes of Seek Humanoid
Sphere of Tactics Deflection
Ancient Drink of Fish Slaying
Holy Instant Draught of Humanoid Seduction
Traveller's Hatchet of Fertility Control

Here's the link for those of you who could use a good laugh today:

Well, because you asked I'll explain all of them for you...

Mystic Throwing Knife of Lizard Seduction - Like Cupid's arrows, except it only functions on Scalies...
Howling Pin of Seek Ogres - You know those Nerf darts that whistle when you shot them, this is like that (in that it howls when thrown) and acts like a homing missile in regards to Ogres.
Lotion of Stability Deflection - Mages are people too, and sometimes they like playing pranks on each other, this gives the user a very bad case of vertigo.
Yellow Tower Shield of Sludge Alteration - It alters sludge, and it's a shield, what more could you want?
Shoes of Seek Humanoid - The humanoid in the description is kinda vague, it actually used to seek a specific part of the humanoid where if you "seek" hard enough, they will be tasting dirt for a week.
Sphere of Tactics Deflection - AKA Idiot Ball, it's the reason why NPCs are so stupid when the story calls for it.
Ancient Drink of Fish Slaying - Sulfuric acid, now in cherry flavor!
Holy Instant Draught of Humanoid Seduction - A holy powder used to make holy love potions of holiness, like Demonic Instant Coffee of Wakefulness, but less useful.
Traveller's Hatchet of Fertility Control - One word: Eunuch

:D
