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!

Which way is he going?

       By: Murometz

Molk Peruda is encountered by the PCs on the second day of their journey west from the salt-choked port of Quyn, as they prepare to explore the jungle.

He appears a gaunt, wolfish man, with matted, dark hair that sprouts from his head in dreadlocks, contrasting with his well-oiled, blue-black, conical beard. His eyes are hidden ebon shards beneath thick arching brows, his nose, crooked, long, and reminiscent of a snout. His mouth is a thin, dark line, his teeth unseen even when he parts his lips to speak.

His skin is the color of tallow, surprising perhaps for a renowned jungle guide, yet his natural helm of dreads and the jungle's canopy keeps the sun from bronzing his originally pale flesh. On his back are tattooed three women from the waist up, side-by-side, each resembling the other but of different ages. This is a tattoo of Molk's mother, sister, and daughter. His wife (don't bring her up to him!) was killed by marauding Qullan years ago, and appears as her own tattoo on his broad but sunken chest.

His feet shockingly are turned around 180 degrees at the ankle, facing towards his back! A curse from a pernicious shaman. Molk walks feet backwards (he's used to it) and walks backwards, forwards. This can be very disconcerting and outright creepy to the PCs as he guides them through the rainforest.

Slung from his back is an archer's quarrel of treated wood carved to resemble a stalking leopard, in his hand a re-curved composite bow of horn and sinew, with a pair of vivid, red eyes, each one painted on the opposite side of the hand-grip. In a leather sheath at his belt, hangs a falchion, its pommel adorned with a curved bird's head and beak.
