The Troll Nose Ring

By:

A Nose Ring? Yep, a nose ring. The ancient symbol of power of the trolls and said to have magical abilities….

The magical making of the nose rings in the Trolloc Nations is clouded at the beginnings of the creation of the Trolloc Nations. Tribal Leaders were gifted by the shamans of their tribes with their nose rings, that increased the ability to smell of the wearer, for the shamans believed in instinct and without the nose, you weren’t a good hunter. The magic was harnessed from the many moutians that crossed over the Trolloc Nation and the Shamans sometimes, for a pirce, made bands and other jewelry to make them magical. The Late Trolloc King was known to wear arm, wrist, hand, ankle and neck bands to increase his power, though it led to his assassination by his Royal Officials who saw him getting too strong.

The ring is made of bronze, silver, or the greatest of them, a gold ring. About two inches in diameter it would be pierced in the bucca of the nose between the two nostrils and held their by usually a hard needle.
Only the leaders wear them or sometimes they are awarded to powerful rulers.

The fashion has become popular among soldiers of The Holy Kingdom of Abasil where the common soldier has his made of just simple metal with no magical abilities. Mostly as to make him or her look fearsome in battle.

The first one made was 500 years ago, by the Grand Shaman, Urg Turg. The reason behind this was that he noticed that Elven Troops used a special wood that made fire glow blue and with enhancing the smell, once could smell them coming, so he made them and they slowly has made the advance of the Elves into the Troll’s territory most troublesome, and only by a simple spell.

Magical Properties:

It is able to increase the smelling ability of the wearer and to make the wearer look fearsome.

I like little trinkets such as this one! Troll magic, Ugh!

The background is ok and the powers too. If I had to pick on anything it would be why only rulers have those if they are such simple spells, but its no matter really.

My opinion is that it is your best one yet!

3 points for being ok and +1 point for having original and balanced powers, very usable!
= 4/5

Certainly an interesting piece ... a tiny ring with a great impact (a brownie point for including its relevance for the social ranking of trolls)

I just want to join the others in congratulating you on this unique item,Sent.You have certainly taken the trolls of your Anflas-Caladin setting a step above the usual dumb troll cliche with this.Perhaps you could do the same with the Ogres fighting the forces of Calan.

I'm infact, thinking of doing just that, Maggot. The ogres origninate from the Swamp, so there will be plenty of items with special powers in the swamp

A 'mushroom' is just a special sort of fungus, Sentinel...

Well - just to fill you in...
When you see a champignon, that's not the true fungus. Its true self lies beneath the ground, it's called the 'mycel'... a tapestry of fungus threads.
The mushroom you see above ground is just the fungus' means of procreation, meant to strew spores far and wide. So, when you order a Pizza Funghi, you are actually munching the fungus' ... pubis ;)

Great idea! You can of course extend this idea to allow trolls to use more powerful magical rings this way.

Not a powerful item, but good background-description and original. Somehow I can not vote, but I would give this a solid 4/5.

who knew the the troll nose had such solid place in our collective unconsciousness?  I love it. 

 

Clear (ish), amusing and direct.

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
