Wyvern's Lure

By:

“ew. What is that smell? Where did it come from?” 
“Where did that wyvern come from!”

A very ordinary looking plant this, making most observers think it a common weed. Nothing special about at it all, except it’s smell. Giving off a strong stench that sticks to any who come close, this appears to be a mere annoyance but nothing more. Unknown to the adventurer who encounters it though, the smell is actually very simmiliar to that of a wyvern’s. This allows the plant to grow lushly, unbothered by grazing animals such as elk that want to avoid the ‘‘wyvern.’’ The PC’s however, do not know this and will be suprised when animals they encounter, run off in terror upon catching the stench that hangs to them. Horses in particular,will be terrified.It might even draw any wyverns in the area that are determined to deal with the ‘‘intruder.’’

I would of called a Wvyrn tail or something else. I am sure people would of quickly figured out the association between them and the wvyrn.

Maybe if there was a reason it was called that, like the person who discovered the smell or that Harral was a mythic Wvyrn tamer or something. The name just comes out of no where.

This stuff would of been rooted out in all civilized places, so it will only grow in the open wilds far from people.

There are some raw spots but I like the idea and I like how you mentioned possible adventure tie-ins.

Hu's Iron Ball

       By: Murometz

Hu was an ambassador of the Seventh Emperor of the Reng Dynasty. Throughout his life he traveled across many miles and lands to entreaty with neighboring kingdoms and the semi-savages who dwelled amidst the Metal Mountains.

During one such diplomatic mission, Hu was gifted a small iron marble as a gesture, by a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe. Little else is known of Hu, but that marble was lost and is now somewhere out there for someone to find.

A tiny, shiny sphere, the marble has several properties. First and foremost it is a strong magnet, considerably stronger than its size and density would indicate.

Secondly, if thrown or rolled upon the ground and the command word is spoken, the iron ball will magically enlarge to either the size of an ogres's head or to that of a great globe, twelve feet in diameter. The rolling ball of either size will continue to roll or fly at the same relative speed it was when launched as a marble, and can thus cause great damage to anything in its path. The magnetic power of the ball will also magnify when enlarged.

Legends claim that the ball has been tossed from besieged castles upon attacking foes and rolled at marching armies in ages past. At the end of such rolls, the larger size globe has been known to not only crush soldiers underfoot, but to also "collect" many dozens of metallic weapons and bits of armor unto itself, appearing as an armored sphere, with swords and spears sticking out from it in all directions.

Owning this powerful marble has its drawbacks. Anyone carrying it on their person, will experience the iron ball's insidious effects after some time. The owner feels no worse for wear, but after two month's time they will suddenly awaken one morning to find that their hair has fallen out completely, their teeth loosened like baby's teeth ready to drop, and their fingernails simply shriveled and sliding off the fingers and toes. Perhaps unbeknownst to the owner at first, the iron ball also renders an owner sterile or barren by this time.

Regular clerical healing will not reverse this horrible malady. Only finding and beseeching a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe to heal the iron ball's effects with their particular brand of magic, will work.

Hu's Iron Ball should be handled carefully by players and gms.
