Frosty's Silk Hat of Sentience


Frosty the Snowman. Is a fairytale they say. He was made of snow. But the children know. How he came to life one day…

There must have been some magic. In that old silk hat they found. For when they placed it on his head. He began to dance around…

Full Item Description
This item appears to be an ordinary silk hat, but it has the unusual power to animate normally unintelligent lumps of raw materials. This item appears usually around the winter holidays, it seems to ride in on the North Wind and is usually discovered by children.

The first recorded appearance of this item was in 1969 A.D. When it brought a pile of snow to life, much to the joy of the village children it began to sing and dance. It spread joy and warmed hearts, but was defeated by the coming spring. Some say this Wintery Artifact was crafted by the hands of Santa Clause himself. But its true origin is unknown. This hat has appeared on several winters following the Winter of ‘69 and has done similar things in villages across the globe. No one know when Frotsy’s legendary hat will strike.

Magic/Cursed Properties
This hat has the powers to animate lumps of snow, dirt, clay, slush, sand, salt, and similar materials if there is enough to form a roughly 5-foot-tall humanoid. The animated materials take on the appearance of a rounded man (furthering suspicions that Santa had a hand in it’s creation). The creature created is a Golem or Elemental with average human intelligence. It will sing and dance to entertain children, but also protects them. No one is sure what other powers this hat possesses, but many want to use them for evil (Including the infamous Jack Frost and Heatmeister).

A must-have for the winter quest! Stays true to the story while maintaining the proper silliness. My only suggestion is that it could have been stretched out and filled in a bit more. But good overall.

Very nice interpretation of a classical item. Could use more information like perhaps a backstory.

I like it, Pieh. Good for a quest around Christmas, and can be easily modified to other situations. Thanks.

I like it for a light-hearted, Christmas themed quest.


In a fantasy game maybe disguise it a bit in a similarly easy, light-hearted way. Frosty's Silk Hat of Sentience is good. Lord Fraws Lowman (formerly a commoner of the lowlands, which the players discover at some point makes him formally Fraws T. the Lowman) might make a more interesting NPC, and adds something for your players to put together as they go.

Frosty as a water elemental. I like it.

A good, basic short item. Good for more light-hearted fantasy.

Within a kingdom the prince or princess has died or been killed and the Queen has been driven half-insane with grief.What if one of the PC's was mistaken for the dead prince or princess and not allowed to leave? There would be advantages in accepting the role, but would it be worth it?
