Beautiful Hair Ribbons


These simple ribbons caused the near destruction of an entire town. And, the ribbons did nothing wrong.

They are beautiful bits of ribbons of the proper width and length for women to add to their hair.  This ribbons are quite nice.  If she uses them, her hair seems nicer. It is softer, shinier, has more bounce and curl (or is straighter depending on her needs). It will add a simple plus to appearance initially, but the bonus will grow. After a short while, they add a good plus (+3 for a 3d6 range) to the charisma/ appearance of the female who uses them. (Her hair will stay softer, shinier, etc for quite a while even if she does not wear the ribbons with some of the pluses). They will also add to her self confidence and poise.

Unfortunately, the ribbons will start to engender jelousy among the other women who see her. Most of it will be of the catty backstabbing nature. However, someone always “goes to far”: working to actively break up a relationship, manipulating events, lying, and even commiting murder (sometimes the woman, sometimes her love).

These are demon enhanced ribbons, probably from a demon posing as a trader or a boyfriend who then left her.

I like this item because it can, with enough ribbons, *infect* whole towns.

Oh yes. These could really destroy a small town or a tight group.

Another demon item spread throughout the world to spread discord. Fairly standard fantasy idea, but not one that has become cliche.

What if a somewhat flexable male bard uses them?

The results would be appropriately tragic.

An old favorite came up on random again. This combined with Dalme The Tinker makes for a great early career adventure, or something that PCs can't just smash their way through.

A simple but useful idea. A poisoned pill that can be brought in by evil spellcasters/fae, etc.

All magic is suddenly gone. No mage can sling sorcery anymore. This upsets all empires and civilizations. It is soon discovered though, trough the combined work of mystics, scholars and dreams, that all the magic has been drawn into a single orb in a vast tower located at one of the poles. Whoever gets there first wins the greatest price in history, access to all the magic in the world. But who owns the tower?
