Christmas Aisle Inspiration

By:

Inspiration comes from strange places

Where do you get your ideas?
This is a question I am frequently asked. I imagine that some of you reading this have also been asked this same question. Most of the time, the only answer I care to give is a shrug of the shoulders and the common ‘I dunno, just happens.’

Now it just so happens, there is a specific location that seldom fails to get my creative motor running. I will take pictures of the things that I find in this location with my cell phone. Sometimes I refer back to it as I am writing, sometimes not. I felt I would like to share this inspiration with you, as well as putting the submissions inspired by it together in this codex.

Thank you, as always, for reading.

Cristata By: Scrasamax ( Lifeforms ) Third Kingdom - Any

In the bleak midwinter frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.

Frosty's Silk Hat of Sentience By: Pieh ( Items ) Clothes - Magical

Frosty the Snowman. Is a fairytale they say. He was made of snow. But the children know. How he came to life one day…

There must have been some magic. In that old silk hat they found. For when they placed it on his head. He began to dance around…

I added a bit of my Christmas inspiration from the WINTER quest. I hope you don't mind the intrusion but I think it fits.

The Door

A nifty little encounter appropriate for any powerful sorcerer/magically adept monsters lair.

When the party have penetrated to an appropriatly impressive level/room they encounter The Door, this door is a vessel through which the Sorcerer/Monster can safely work against any intruders, the door is heavy duty iron bound studded oak wrought with craft skill and magic, set in the middle is a crystal orb, once the party get within a preset distance the orb flickers briefly as the door warns its "master" of the intruders, the master can then effectivly possess the door itself, this means that all movement the door is capable of (i.e. opening and closing) come under the control of the master, the master can also cast spells from the door as if he were there himself, all the while any damage that is inflicted in return merely damages the door, this will in effect ruin any of the parties chances of surprise, allow the master to assess the parties abilities while remaining safe and sound and finally will probably cause the party to waste some of their juicier items/spells on a chunk of wood and iron, and if the master happens to have a deadly spell or three it could also reduce the size of the party,

Of course if you wanted to be really nasty you could have the door open to admit one person and then slam shut on the second person (squish) whilst blasting away with every spell in the mastrs repetoir
