Glowing Idol of Gnashtooth

By:

"Goblin Sorcerery? That's bullcrap. A Goblin couldn't enchant the backside of a sick goat to- Well, you get what I'm saying."

The Edgeless Blade of Gnashtooth!

The group watched the lone goblin guarding the entrance to the cave complex. The wind shifted slightly, and the goblin dropped his weapon as if it had caused him pain and proceeded to flee into the cave. "That's not a good sign..."

This strange object is obviously a goblin-manufactured stabbing implement. It has a painful-looking point to it and seems to constant shed blue light. It it made of roughly worked granite and seems to be stained with blood. There are no identifying marks about it, but it simply seems like the type of cruel device a goblin would stab someone with.

Gnashtooth's Hooman Bane - New Spell

This relatively simple, yet inherently flawed, spell was created by the shamanistic goblin chieftain Gnashtooth Mudunubus. It calls forth the spirit of a keen-nosed cave rat, which is killed in the process of casting the spell, and binds its spirit to an object. The spirit rat can be given simple, scent-activated, directions and its actions are limited to affecting those holding onto the object it is bound to and the object itself. The most common use of this spell is for the rat spirit to mentally "bite" a goblin when it catches a whiff of human stink. Another popular use is to have it emit a bright flash of special light that can temporarily blind a human, but has no effect on creatures used to the darkness.

What is going on here?

The group, after venturing into the cave opening, found many signs of goblin activity; but no goblins. Eventually they came to an intersection with some sort of small fetish placed around the corner. As soon as the thief moved out to investigate, a bright flash of light went off. "Ambush!" the adventurer tried to yell, but his throat was a fountain of blood before the words could be formed.

Gnashtooth Mudunubus is clever, for a goblin, and does his best to keep his defenses "up to date."" He frequently sends out scouts to collect information of what species is likely to attempt to root them out next, and keys his rat spirits to their scent. The goblins of the Mudunubus Tribe are slowly collecting lots of different ores and minerals from the dwarven tunnels they usurped, and plan to keep them for a long time.

Actually, just enchanting random rocks means that a human simply cannot sneak past goblins, as a precise ring of blue will flare up around his position.
Improving this spell, it could release flashes of light when humans approach, dulling their eyes to the presence of goblins in the dark.

Withholding vote, this could be so much better.

Set it to Advice Requested until I can sort it out.

I offer this advice to all: Do not post write/post entire submissions after taking sedatives. And... Always listen to EchoMirage.

Echo, I haven't always, but I have come to appreciate your words of wisdom. As biting at they seem at times, I have realized that you always try to speak you mind. And that is commendable.

Oh. You have not seen "biting" yet :D
But: always glad to be of service.

Were you taking an Ambien when you posted this? An interesting idea though.

Remeron, actually. And I wasn't sleep-posting, I was just really zonked out and thought it sounded cool. As far as I know I don't get out of bed and shamble through the streets like my fishy-kin in the Innsmouth night. I will work on this one, I promise.

A decent Goblinish item, though it really dances around what it actually looks like. Seems more a description of a spell effect than an item.

In the inaccessible plateau of Hor-Nushan, there was always little crime. But in late autumn comes a maddening wind, that can drive the best man crazy, if only for a short time, make him turn on himself or others. For murder, the locals have devised a special punishment: the murderer has to dig a well for the family of his victim. The area is very dry, and having a good well is a source of wealth and prestige. In this way, the murderer atones for his deed and repays the family; perhaps they even find peace.
