Binding Oath Ring

By:

Tired of people that just don’t keep their word? Well, with a Binding Oath Ring, that’ll be next to imposible.

The Binding Oath ring was created by the second Hermit-King of Erma. The Ring was created after Morway, the steward, atempted to userp the kingdom when the king was out, and civil war occured until the king returned. The king thought that the best way to keep the steward loyal.It was a silver ring set with a diamond. Three Elf generations later, before the ring was placed on the steward’s finger, it was snached by a trained magpie owned by Morway’s gandson Hierumor. Hierumor’s plan was to follow in his grandfathers footsteps. the problem was, the ring would prevent that, so he had to use the trained magpie that he used to steal jewlery to make a livin, as the decendants of Morway were unliked. even after the theft of the ring, the plan was dificult asthey needed to turn the steward evil. this was not possible, as the steward was very firm in his beleifs and loyalties. when the line of Morway was finnaly ended, the ring was left in the tomb of Morway, as all stewards are given proper tombs, even evil ones. it was found five-hundred years latter by the to-be steward. after that, it returned to the original custom of keeping loyalty by the steward. it is currently owned by Selvarn, in order to keep him faithfull to Ardos, The Hermit-King.

Magical Properties:

when an oath is sworn by the ring and set on the finger, it cannot be removed by any means until the oathee releses him, or the oath is furfilled. while in use, the wearer cannot break his oath. If he thinks about violating the oath, his thoughts are redirected. If the oath is about to be violated by accident, the wearer becomes aware of the oath. While the ring is used, the wearer has strong compulsions to follow the oath.

Wow!
Huge improvement, Newbie!
A ring that creates an unbreakable oath- it's a good item on its own, and it explains how the Beggar (or is it Hermit?) King of Erna keeps his throne despite plotting stewards. I like the backstory, though it could be more exciting; not a problem though.
Suggestions for a better name: Oathbinding Ring, Circle of Loyalty, Oathkeeper, Oath-Ring of Erna, Oath-Ring of Morway (maybe?)

4/5. Nice improvement!

Instead of a name that tells you exactly what the ring is, how about a more realistic name?

Steward's Ring
Ring of the Steward
Morway's Bane
Ring of Fealty

Great improvement.

Very nice

I must admit I do like mind magics (personal opinion I'm afraid) - they're much more subtle than the tradition fireball and potentially a lot more powerful

I like it a lot. A ring designed to keep oath breakers or your retainers from breaking their oaths. Good for knights and stewards.

I would have given it a higher rating but the one paragraph was a little harsh to read and the few mispelled word. Otherwise a decent job.

Every king should make his nobles wear these.

That would make the rings an afront to the noble's honor. It means the King does not Trust Them. It would lead to a little rebellion why the king had to yoke his nobles with the rings.

This also leads to other things. Nobles would work to find ways to remove the rings (counterspells). Fake rings might be substituted in the ceremonies.

Also if the King goes mad or bad or is possessed, all these nobles HAVE to follow his insane commands because they are bound to his word.

Not automatically a good thing.

The seafaring people of the Southern Islands value their ships greatly, as do other maritime nations. However, they take the beliefs about ships a bit further. A ship's name is very important, once it is named it shouldn't be renamed anymore, ever; most renamed ships seem to fail sooner or later. Ships do not tolerate parts from other ships, a single board from a wrong source can cost sailors their lives, so it is said.

Most ships are identified as female, very few as male, though there is no tale of how their personality is identified; it has nothing to do with the name, for example. The Clarissa (a well-known male ship) is said to like good wine. So whenever sailors or passangers drink, they have to spill a glass for the ship, too. But that is only the most known example.
