Fairy Luck

By:

While in a deep forest a fairy will take a liking to one of the players.

While in a deep forest a fairy will take a liking to one of the players. Whether it be for the looks of one of them or perhaps on of them did a good deed while in the fairy’s home. Either way the fairy follows them to attempt to help them.

Once into a town or their destination the fairy’s ‘help’ kicks in. If they purchase something or buy rooms at an inn the fairy trys to assist them by retrieving any money they used to pay. The fairy can, without fail, retrieve any item or money and return it to the owner without either of them knowing. If they sell or trade an item, they will end up having that item right back with them at the fairy’s earliest convenience. It goes for things they are trying to get rid of as well. They dumping 3 short swords from their last battle, they will reappear again at some point.

This could get dangerous for the players. Items traded for gold would be noticed missing by the person traded to. If the new owner finds his newly purchased item is missing and plays a hunch and has the players arrested, they just might find that the solid gold amulet they thought they sold is back into the pocket of the players. Dungeon crawling: those four swords that they left behind afer seeing they were rusted could suddenly reappear when a character turns around and trips over them. This trip could cause a large crash letting everybody in the area know they are there.

If they ever figure out something is happening and somehow find the fairy. How do they convince a helpful fairy they don’t want it around anymore without hurting its feelings?

This fairy has a poor sense of personal property. Which is understandable given she's a forest spirit. Does the sun own the light that falls on the trees? Can the grass buy out the trees and make them move? How much rent should the birds pay for thier nests? Life in the forest is mainly about letting things be because they are for the good of all.

Now, if the players can get the fairy to understand that they want to be able to trade things and throw things away, what will happen when the fairy goes back home? Maybe it will chase out every living thing that can't do anything for her, become a little green tryanical despot. Maybe she decides that she has been providing the forest a service and now thinks she can get a better deal somewhere else. She might start wandering to find somewhere she can ply her trade for the compensation she wants.

Capitalistic Fae. Who woulda thought?

Cool! Very cool. I like it in that there's no real "Bad Guys", yet it's still a dangerous mischief for the PCs. There are a lot of places where you can run off and make a full quest out of this, and if you don't, it's still a fun little side adventure that would be a much-welcome change of pace from slaying demons and such. Good work!

Very fun, especially if the Gm seeds some red herring magical items among the latest trove of treasure the group think *may* be cursed.

Turn dead spells to banish ghostly saboteurs, see the invisible to spot the meddlesome mage, and accusing the thief of going overboard to prove her usefulness to the group. All sadly in vain for everything keeps coming full circle, even that rotting sandwich, formerly silently moldering in the bottom of  Stella's travel pack until she noticed the repulsive smell...

So much fun to be had by the inclusion of one innocent little fey....

Fun idea. I like it. My players would figure it out and "game" the system intentionally. I would recommend that you limit the fairy to only performing 3 "favors" before leaving.

Tambourine

       By: Yokima.van.zephrill

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
