Prankster Plant

By:

A small magical plant with a love for pulling pranks.

Appearance:

The Prankster Plant looks like a small leafy fern.  The only unusual aspect is that at the end of it’s stems there are leaves shaped like hands.

Background:

No one really knows where the Prankster Plant came from but all indications point to a magical experiment gone wrong.

Roleplaying Notes:

The plant is imbued with a high intelligence and wicked sense of humor.  It’s able to uproot itself and move about on it’s strong stems like a spider.  Usually waiting for travelers to bed down for the night, the plant will then spend the next few hours stealing items (everything from gold to shoestrings) and framing other party members for it, getting into map cases and adding a few wrong turns, lossing straps on saddles and pouches, and just generally causing all sorts of mischief.  It’s incredibly hard to detect the Prankster Plant as it can move silently through the camp and let’s face it, no one on watch is gonna suspect that small fern near the wagon of any wrong doing.

How bad a riding check to they have to make to leave their horses saddled overnight? Does the fern still use sunlight for food or does it scavange food from travelers? If it is smart enough to make wrong turns on a map, can it write or communicate at all, and what would it have to say?

Ummmm. This is a character? Do you have a lifeform or monster category? Or is this the only one?

I like this! I find it very appealing and funny, even in its brevity.

I Loled. Imagine the trouble an infestation of these plants could do in a village or city? Cue the silly music.

Sessiliths

       By: Murometz

Sessiliths (name based on the word sessile) are gargoyle-type creatures which are stationary, attached to the stone of whichever foundation they are bound to. Though they can move their extremities and limbs they are unable to move away from their particular perch. In lieu of swooping down and attacking like their mobile cousins the gargoyles proper, sessiliths are equipped with their own brand of mischief. The creatures are all able to verbalize and thus usually hurl vile insults and curses upon passersby. The cumulative effects of dozens of sessiliths cursing, screaming, and speaking in tongues, can have an effect of temporary confusion (or even discord) in those forced to listen to the shrieking stone gremlins.

Additionally, most possess the ability to "spout" or spit forth various undesirable projections, such as tar, boiling water, or even acid. While they can usually be avoided easily enough or even destroyed (their "bodies" feature the same defenses as gargoyles), sessiliths are usually placed in such a way as to hinder all trespassers and interlopers, narrow corridors, claustrophobic tunnels and other related "gauntlets", where they cannot be easily avoided. Like gargoyles, sessiliths come in all sorts of grotesque shapes and sizes, though they tend to resemble tiny horned devils, demonic amphibians, or simply distorted faces and heads, more often than not.
