Candy-Soul Grenade

By:

A tiny marble cherry with an amber heart inlaid. One of the Lolliful Avenger's most devastatingly effective weapons.

"Whenever a girl loses a bit of her soul because of a broken heart, having dreams shattered, or being abused, that bit drifts to the Lolliful Avenger. Who is a composite being of lost dreams and innocence, only angry."


Description

A tiny marble cherry with an amber heart inlaid. When thrown toward the intended victim they explode, realeasing minuscule fragments of Soul Marble which then bury themselves into their flesh.

While they cause no physical harm, the psychological damage can be extreme.

The victim will be unlucky in love, and will whenenver he meets another person whom he/she desires will recall memories and feelings of any they have hurt emotionally, either by abandoning them, or through being unfaithful.

The Way Out

The only way to escape this curse is to be able to express romantic love or 'true' love for the person they intend to become one with, and this must last. Otherwise the curse will return and just as before, torment the affected soul.

Plot Hooks

- The PC's encounter the Lolliful Avenger and one (or more) of the party manages to upset/insult her. A Candy-Soul Grenade is thrown into their midst and one of the players is affected by the curse. (Preferably one in a relationship, or one whose romantic endeavors are not always good)

- The classic; an item found on or near a deceased body. Perhaps this person went insane because of the Cherry?

There will be a submission coming up soon about the "Lolliful Avenger", which is why there is not much detail given here.

Credit must also be given to Echo and his.. thoughts? :P

An interesting item, but rather than being used against the PCs I can see this being used as a plot device, the Queen has been afflicted by a soul cherry and she's gone all Queen of Hearts on the kingdom. Alternately what could be a more devastating weapon against a highly chivalrous knight? Use inside a game group would require a good deal of maturity IMHO so. So I would use these with caution.

2.5/5 because it is not a bad idea but it's vague. Who made them, and to what purpose? How common are they, and how well known are they?

I agree with your vote for the most part.

I made this intentionally vague so that I could include more information to the main sub, when I finally get around to unveiling it.

Rarity/Availability is of course an issue that I can change and elaborate on.

Thanks Scras :)

An interesting item, if a little thin on details.

I like the idea of a grenade that blows up emotions. And that the cure is also emotional. That's what sets this apart from being, say, just another anti-love potion. Because SURPRISE: grenade!

Nine times out of ten, it’s the undead that do the running.

Not strictly animal or vegetable, the Corpse bud is a peculiar individual that shares characteristics from multiple kingdoms and species. In appearance, all corpse buds bear a shape of a large rounded top bud divided into four lateral segments, and a much longer, narrower bottom bud, also divided into four segments. Between the two halves are a set of four radial limbs, rounded on top and flat on the bottom, covered with tiny serrated hooks facing towards the body. In overall size, it’s limbs reach as wide as a spread hand, with the body being as thick as a fist. It is as long as a human hand from top to bottom.

Internally, the top bud of the corpse bud contains a bacteria filled membrane that produces the hydrogen that the corpse bud uses to stay aloft, and a series of fungal gills for the dispersal of spores for reproduction. The lower half of the bud contains a number of fine filaments, as well as a sharp barbed stinger containing a powerful local anaesthesia.

The Corpse Bud mobilizes by inflating its top bud, and steers by rotating its arms rapidly about its body. The corpse bud ordinarily drifts with the wind, orienting towards the scent of recent decay and death. It preys on the recently dead, burrowing the lower bud into the victim, using the anaesthesia in case the victim is dying, and not truly deceased. Once embedded, it releases its filaments into the body, replacing the current nervous system. This gives it full animation of the body, and allows the corpse bud to direct it.

Corpse buds are not a malevolent species, being primarily concerned with breaking down the host body for food, and infecting the reproductive cycle with spores in order to mate with other corpse-bud bodies. To preserve the corpse for this purpose, Corpse buds will seek out dry locations to prevent bacteria from destroying the corpses. This often causes a large number of corpse buds to gather in a single location.

In culture, Corpse buds are used to repair broken spines or degenerative diseases, as the sentient mind will easily overcome the mind of the non-sentient corpse bud. Once infected by a corpse bud, however, removal is usually fatal, and the infected individual cannot reproduce, or risk infecting another. Thus, it is a technique often reserved for the elderly, or a last resort.

Necromancers and other dark sorcerers will often preserve the corpses of their victims magically, and infect them with corpse buds, creating traditional undead as well, so as to seed their lairs with undead both offensive and non, in order to throw their enemies off balance. They will also enslave the rudimentary minds of the corpse buds, and transform the docile things into a plague. There have also been accounts of magically transformed corpse buds with stronger minds and a taste for living flesh, but thus far all accounts are unproven rumors.
