Ring of Wit

By:

Technically, this would be the ring of DIM-wit…

A magical ring created by a brilliant mage that was supposed to make him even More brilliant. However, a vengeful ex-apprentice reversed the magical effect one night, and now whoever puts the ring on beacomes incredibly stupid! Unfourtunatly, our mage freind never discovered this… One day he slipped the ring on, and *POOF* no more brains. Well, he still had his brains, he just beacame so stupid he forgot how to use them. A person who puts this cursed ring on immeadiatly beacomes as smart as a cow; Eating, sleeping, breathing and making bizare noises beacome about things the wearer can do. If only they werent so stupid as to forget how to take off the ring…

Magical Properties:

cursed, you become incredibly stupid

Did anyone ever think to take the ring off, or did the mage live alone?

This might be a warning for players to check out magic items before just casting them about, but any party should be able to take care of anyone putting this on.

That doesn't mean it doesn't have uses. It'd be a great way to subdue a person for capture. Leave the ring for them to find, or as bait for pick pockets, or even present it to them as a token of respect. They put it on, and you have instant passivness from tweedle dum.

Other possiblities exist...

Neat item for punishing criminals, assassins and rogue mages. Their sentence could be a preset amount of time wearing the ring, though I can see the local law 'forgetting' to take the ring off of the fingers of convicts when their time is up.

Badly presented-but a good basic idea.It could be used to force unwilling women (or men) into marridge, in culutres where divorce is not permitted.Great for making sure the wedding is not messed up.

Hmm, a bride as dumb as a cow during a wedding could be rather disruptive, as only eating, sleeping and other things would occupy her mind. Might make a rather memorable wedding.

Hmm, being a little generous with a 2.5, but not quite as bad as a 2.0.

This one could easily be salvaged with just a little work. Spell check, a little more detail would easily push this into the 3 range.

Castoria, Land of Shattered Stars

       By: Veretrix

Castoria was once a thriving and prosperous nation, a rich trade center for the surrounding lands. This all changed when, on one fateful night nearly a century ago, the Mist of Eternity rolled in and surrounded the land, obscuring more of the outside world as days and nights passed.

By the time the Mist blocked out the sun, a new light shone during what was assumed to be daytime: The Starpoint Spire, a mysterious place atop Castoria's highest peak in the northern-central region. Some say that there is some sort of building atop the mountain shining the dim "sunlight" onto the land, but it is only ever too bright or too dark to fully make out any structure, not to mention the mountain's immense height.

Not a month after the Spire's light lit up, the stars fell. Flaming rocks and debris from far-flung edges of space plummeted downward onto the eastern region of Castoria. Once the shower subsided, a strange energy from within the fallen stars transformed the eastern lands in what are now known as The Voidwastes, a barren gray land littered with craters and strange alien creatures (these can vary, but I had Pathfinder's Akatas in mind).

To the south, strange mechanism of eldritch origin are again at work after aeons of rest in the Ruins of Kchuthngnl, an ancient city of non-human creation that is estimated by scholars to be no less that five millennia old.

To the west, the once peaceful and serene forest, now known as The Plagued Woods, has been experiencing corruptions of the wildlife and humanoids living there. Some humans have reported creatures that appear not unlike a halfling, except that they can open their mouths to massive proportions to swallow creatures the size of an ogre.

When adventurers and citizens alike try to make an escape from Castoria, they are never seen again, and it is utterly unknown whether they found hopeful sanctuary or agonizing death withing the Mist's depths.

What is unknown to all residents of Castoria is that all of these events occurred because of the actions of a secret but powerful cult loyal to the Elder Gods who call the space between the planes their abhorrent home. The cult still lives on, larger than ever, and their plan is for the alien horrors to incubate and thrive within the dome of mist that now envelops Castoria, so that when the Elder Gods return as the cult's prophecy foretells, they will have an army of blasphemous creation at their disposal that they will use to make war with and enslave the denizens of the Material Plane.
