Estate Sale - Lot 14

By:

“And now Ladies, Lords, and Gentlemen,” I bring your attention to Lot 14. This is hodgepodge of personal effects that I am sure you will find interesting. If you see anything that peaks your interest, buy it and the entire lot for cheap. Now I start the bidding at .....”

Beautiful Chess set: A beautiful set of “ivory” chess pieces, actually carved from human bone.

The bedspread of nightmares: If someone sleeps beneath it they will have nightmares, initially quite mild but which get worse the more nights they sleep under the bedspread.

The Pictureframe of Souls: Any portrait in this frame will change, bit by bit, over the course of a week to reveal the current state of the souls of anyone in it. The cultist used it to find True Innocents to sacrifice.

Butterknife of paralysis: Doesn’t do any more damage than a regular butterknife, but someone being cut with this can’t do anything but watch you saw into them very slowly. This is from a wish made to a demon long agon. The wisher is long dead, dammed to hell, the butterknife is still here.

The Locket: Beautifully made from shining gold, this locket would be a perfect gift for the wife, girlfriend, mother or daughter of a nobleman, but for one hitch: It’s welded shut.

Essentially, a really nasty demon is bound in the locket, to give strength to the cultist. If the locket is ever actually opened, boom, he comes out and tries to kill everything. He wants revenge. Perfect thing for a PC to give a love interest…

I like the butter knife, could I buy it from you? I have quite a few people I would love to use it on.

Man. The GSFH codex is a large one, and one I know almost everyone on Strolen's likes. So why is there only one vote on this entry?

I think there could be more done with it than just these few items though. Nice job on them though.

More people should vote for this I think.

Well, while the items are not bad, it's still just a bunch of one-liners defined by their master codex.

I like the Butterknife of paralysis most, it has a distinctive creepiness.

The Lots are "clean up" from the various entries when this was a forum submission. There was a lot of crap just tossed into it, and this was the all the "straight" ones from various sources. Still, there are some jems in "the lots".

Still, I would rather have "A lot" of short items than nothing at all for the Garage Sale.

Oh, no objection to their existence. I just think they would probably look better as scroll entries nowadays.

Personally, I'm finding I like Scroll entries a lot less then I used to. They are hard to reuse and their content is rather hidden. Something like a super-lightweight stub would be nice - it would look like a scroll entry, but be stand alone so it could exist in many subs at the same time.

Hmmm... if I remember correctly that was one of the options we have considered for Stubs. Post it into the appropriate thread, we may have to extend them.

For those familiar with cantrips, you know they are minor acts of magic that have hardly any noticable effect on the world. For example a cantrip to make your food taste better won't heal you any more, or be any more nourishing, just won't make it so hard to get it down. A light cantrip certainly won't be able to blind or even distract anybody, but you might be able flash it to signal someone looking at the right spot.

What if children's nusery ryhmes were a form of cantrip? Like the "Rain, Rain, go away, come again another day." One child singing it wouldn't do more than spare her house a couple raindrops, but what if the whole village got together and was chanting in unison? Each one doing just a bit might actually be able to divert a whole storm...
