Garith's Vineyard


This purple gem has a will of its own, one of growth and fine spirit

Full Item Description
Formerly a milky white gem, that has been transformed into a beautiful, wine-colored jewel.
A seemingly unfinished vineyard and distillery near Great Forks produced this dark, red gem. The wood substructure grew with vines, sprouted leaves, and bore fruit from the influence of the natural demense it had been built on. In the cornerstone of the main building a white jewel had been placed for good luck and as a symbol of two families joined in marriage, the land from the daughters dowery. The white jewel acted as a focus and was changed. 
Magic/Cursed Properties
When planted near a wooden structure it will take root and produce vines and grapes, which when harvested and fermented produces a legendary wine no other can match. The vines are rampant, growing at a rate of an acre an hour only stopping when no support structure can be found or the gem is removed from the area, these vines are strong, resilient against anything but fire before breaking, and can continue to grow as long as the gem is still planted. When used in a socket in armour or even in jewelry, the gem sprouts it’s own vines covering the entirety of the user adding the resiliency to an already existing armour or creating its own upon the wearers clothes, but now the armour is covered with grapes and leaves giving the user a bonus to stealth with its camouflage in the wild but not in a cityscape or places where the natural growth would seem out of place (GMs call). If the gem is removed from the ground of the vineyard, the vines stop growing and lose most of their strength, dieing within a week, if removed from a socket the grapevines die immediately. The Gem is not to be used lightly, if the wearer has low strength or low constitution the vines are likely to root the wearer to the ground, or if worn to sleep near supporting structures the PC may become the basis of a new Vineyard.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
