Pillow of Sleep

By:

It is a nice fluffy pillow, filled with soft down, covered in a soft, nice fabric. It is soooo comfortable. *yawn* You could just nod offffff when layyyying on .......... *snore*

Full Item Description
It is your standard fluffy feather pillow. The stitching on the borders are quite elaborate, but it looks more like a sign of quality rather than arcane patterning.

History
This is a classic enchantment, part of most spell colleges. The creator of this enchantment has been lost to history.

Magic/Cursed Properties
Soon after one lays on or sits upon the item, they will feel relaxed. They will then feel drowsey. Soon they will drop into a deep deep sleep.  If kept in contact with the pillow, they can not awaken for at least 8 hours, possible more if they are used to sleeping in, fatigued, or tired.

This is not an Evil item per say. It is a handy part of the Evil Cultist toolkit.

This is an excellent tool for evil cultists, allowing them to kidnap people out from their beds or couches with a minimum of fuss or muss. They can even give it to the victim’s spouse/ sleeping partner, so they can then kidnap the victim and no amount of screaming or noise will wake them. It just takes another break in to eventually reclaim the pillow.

You know, I am kind of overwhelmed of all those items that turn you to evil and make you a bad boy. This is a nice and innocent enough addition for any Evil Cultist or a hospital.

Logical and sweet, perfect for resting. I can well imagine creating a slightly weaker variant when the sleeper can wake up to strong stimuli from outside.


Note: it wasn't said, but it has to: really rough handling or wounding the sleeper will break the spell.

I agree with what manfred said, but I judge from main site standards. This site certainly has promise, but like all MoonHunter posts it is a good ideas posted for remembrance and not for presentation. Too short and too little detail.

Not every item is an "epic piece". Many items are just "standard enchantments" that any worker of magic might have access to.

People tend to forget simple, uselful items, that would make the mage a good income. If magic and enchantment's exist, this is an "every mage" sort of spell/ item. Not every mage is going to make a +12 sword of epic slaying. Why spend decades of your life making this thing, while you can bump out a couple of dozen of these pillows a year, make a good living that allows you to "see the world" and "seek a little adventure" now and again.

Aurora, where are you?

Fluffy magic item I so want. I understand that it should be a common magic item that mages make to pay the bills so they can get down to some real magic. I also see that this is a serious part of the Evil Bad Guy tool kit.

I fourth the desire to own one. It's simply so practical I don't feel it needs any real explanation. It's not a 5/5 post that makes you go "Woah... must... use..." but any DM or even a player can come up with a dozen clever uses for it. I especially like that it doesn't have that overwhelming aura of evil so many things have, it just has uses and 'misuses'.

Thus you understand the purpose of the item. It is a filler,an equipment list item, something that logically would exist in the world. In fact, many "good" or respectable talismongers or enchanters would make such an item,. It just has.... uses.

Now if you are in a low magic/ low enchantment world, then it is an Evil Cultist specialty. Promise some things to a spirit... and poof a magic item.

THE COVEN
When the characters approach a clearing in the forest, they will see 4 ogres who are guarding, and preventing from escape, 4 human males, and 3 human females. The ogres will see the party and leap to attack. The females will scream "OUR SAVIORS!!" and run screaming straight across the currently forming battlefield, in between ogres and party members, to hide behind the rearmost party members. They will be safe there. The males will try to skirt the battle to the north side to join the women.

To the south, giants will be hiding in the thick underbrush until the party has engaged the ogres and then attack the most opportune target EXCEPT the ones that the females are next to.

It should be noted that the female commoners are not female commoners at all, nor are the male commoners actually male commoners. The female commoners are the hags, who have polymorphed themselves as the commoners in their stewpot to escape detection. The males skirting the battle are actually MORE ogres, the hags were in the process of polymorphing ALL the ogres into regular humans for ambush purposes. The REAL commoners are already dead, having found their way into the coven's cauldron for dinner.

The hags (the women) will position themselves near to any spellcasters in the rear first, and then near anyone else in the back of the fight. The ogres (the men) will wait until the hags shift form, and then attack first the rear folks, then shift into the melee.

It is possible that the characters, as they approach the ogres, will notice the giants in the bush, and be able to warn the others of the ambush.

GAME NOTES: If you sell the screaming women correctly, they will not even be suspected until it is too late. Therein lay the problem. This encounter is ESPECIALLY deadly to the rear eschelon of the party. It is entirely possible that the hags will finish off half the party before they even realize they have been duped. Caution is required if the game master wishes to avoid a TPK(total party kill).
