Domestic Magic


Who says maids can’t use magic?

The country of Throntia is known for three things, its brutal human-dominance attitude, the immeasurable divide between the rich and poor, and its unending thirst for magic (Shameless, acoording to the Elves.)

Many of their productions are deadly and war-like, the most recent of which hail from the mind of Duke Alishtar Alishtov of the city of Haven. his sister, Emera, dabbles in more mundane magics, though her success is most likely due to her association with her brother and the mysterious dissapearences of her compettitors.

These items are intended for further detailing a household, for players that own keeps, or the moe imaginative players.

Additional Ideas (9)

Ring of house keeping: This ring produces the effects of a prestidigitation spell for the purposes of cleaning, coloring, heating and cooling. The wearer has unlimited access to this effect.

Ambient Orb: Each Ambient Orb comes with a reprogammable set of comand words that can be used to adjust the temperature and humidity of a room. Many are also set with nature sounds that can be triggered with another (set of) command word(s).

Ring of fertility/contraception: Relatively self explanitory, this rings can assist in or hinder humanoid reproduction. More expensive versions also allow for a choice of gender in the newborn.

Collar of grooming: Hounds are particularly popular among Throntian nobles, and this collar was designed with their owners in mind. Any dog or cat that dons a collar of grooming has its fur magically combed and cleaned at the moment it is messed. the collar also promotes the growth of fur ina balding patches and trims hair to the current standards for dog or cat shows. a seperate version of this, the bracelet of grooming, is often placed on messy children.

Rings of finding: Designed for parents, the rings of finding come in sets of up to 12. The wearers of any one of the rings instantly knows the location of the other rings, and by concentrating for one minute can determine the wearer.

The Sword of Fire, as posted here, could be a great domestic item.

Gloves of Hearth

The main Glove of Hearth is the Glove of Cleaning:
It is a simple magic items with three cantrips enchanted into them. "Clean"/ "Sweep"/ "Polish"

These gloves are simple long soft cloth gloves of a creme color with a redish agate monted at the wrist. The gloves are clean, but always look quite worn.

There are gloves that will help with cooking (Warm/ Cool/ Flavor/ Alter Flavor) and Laundry (Clean/ Brighten/ Press) and other tasks. Their stones will be different (Green and Blue for these stones). A well prepared household would have a variety of gloves to help with all domestic chores.

These are nothing more than Cantrip Gloves. Many appentices create domestic gloves to help them with their own mundane chores for their master AND because they can easly sell the items for some pocket cash.

HouseFolk Statuettes

These simple statuettes are appealing to a race of Fae creatures and will draw them to the household. One places an offering suitable for these pixie-like creatures and in return, they will perform moderate household chores while the homeowner and any other occupants are asleep. The appearance and materials used to craft these statuette varies wildly by region and culture, along with the tastes of the local Fae.

Leaving the statuette out without a suitable offering will result in the pixies not cleains, but creating disorder the first night. The second night, they will push the statuette onto the floor, or destroy it by some other means. The same holds true if any occupants attempt to spy upon the fae.

If especially offended, they might curse the incautious homeowner.

Statuettes must be placed in plain view to be effective. Those stored will not draw fae.

This post could easily be more detailed. I will hold my vote in anticipation of a more detailed body of work.

I was planning on adding to it, but I'm short on ideas at the moment. If you have any, please let me know. As for the Alishtar/Emera part it's very campaign specific, and for all I know anyone here may be gaming it sometime. I'll try to link it to a setting post ASAP though.

As it stands this is little more than a basic idea, although I must say it's quite a good one.

Each of the magical properties listed above could, and in my view should, be expanded as an item in its own right.

I won't bother to vote on this but wait until more detail is supplied.

Nice idea but needs more work - I look forward to seeing the expanded post.

I had a thought about the ring of contraception... could such a device be really useful to a mideaval whore? I mean, how much value would NOT having children be, in that line of work? I have this visual that johns weren't terribly picky about the pregnancy status of their whores at the time, but maybe it's just a visual I have.

Could one create a plot surrounding the desire to obtain a ring like this for a whorehouse? The ring to be transferred from whore to whore to prevent conception of children? Maybe some thieves guild plot to increase the value of their whores, or something? Maybe the rival guilds are jealous of the prices the whores command, and some turf war breaks out? I dunno, just a thought...

Man you'd love my campaign ideas for Lower Throntia, I'll have to post them up sometime.

This post needs to be broken down into a scroll. I will edit it and make it so.

I think it is far to easy to forget that the bulk of magic is going to be used in the day to day affairs of the populace, providing that magic is accepted and not reviled or seen as evil. To touch on a lighter subject, such items as self-stirring pots, enchanted scrubbers that wash dishes, and the old stand-by, the Apprentice's Brooms come to mind.

On a more serious note, there will certainly be a market for good luck charms, amulets and special wardings. Would you like a Ward vs. Telemarketers? What about an illegal charm that wards away the King's Taxman?

A good idea-not all magic needs to be reserved for high-ranking ubermages.

This is actually a brilliant idea for a scroll, how did I miss this one?!

No, I don't think so. ;)

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.
