Golden Cherry


The result of an unexpected side effect of magical research. The cherries help to light up the dark in a unique way.

Full Description
Neither the cherries nor the tree they come from are actually gold or even have traces of gold. It is simlply the color of the fruit. Once the blossoms mature into fruit, they appear as small green cherries untill ripe, when they take on a golden luster.

The cherries can be eaten fresh or even dried and retain the full potency of their magical effects. The cherry juice has no special properties, although it makes an excellent sherbert.

As long as the fruit of the cherry is whole, the magic works. Chopping, dicing, jamming, or any other process that breaks the skin of the cherry’s fruit activates the magic.

This fruit is in no way related to the golden apples of legend.

Many “ladies of the night” use these to entice customers to them. The seeds of the cherries are not overly difficult to plant, simply crack the pit like an ordianry cherry and pour a tankard of ale in the hole with the cherry.

Magical Properties:
When a cherry is eaten whole, it reacts with the body in such a way as to produce bio-luminesence. In other words, you eat a cherry, you start to glow. One cherry will produce light equivilant to a candle, six will make the consumer’s body glow with light equal to a torch. The effect lasts for 30 minutes since the last consuption of a cherry.

Additional Information
A simple accident of alchemical research by one Bonzer The Alchemist (dumping some waste chemicals in the trash where a cherry pit was) created these cherries. The pits grew true and like normal cherries.

It is great fun to see this item at work.
I can already see the looks on the face of the roque who is trying to sneak attack someone.

But also in the situation where you want to explore a dungeon in debt. This can actualy be a very usefull tool. No more dragging around torches, that you need to keep in a hand. Just walk around and light the area. (Bettter have a fighter or Paladin do that and not the sneaking cheater or the wizard that wants to be able to blend into the shadow.)

Have a store of these, and let a whole city celebrate! Would work excellently with Halloween-like holidays, where the people try to look like ghosts.

Nice piece of chrome.

Order of the Moonbeard

       By: valadaar

Among the assortment of organized criminals who live in the great city, few command greater fear the Moonbeard Order.

They of course do not call themselves that, but have earned the moniker from their fashion of dying their large beards with lye to produce a distinctive crescent shape running from earlobe to earlobe. This is meant as a taunt for their enemies, for it clearly outlines their throats.

They also wear garb similar to the northern tribesman, carefully tooled leather and showing multiple, colourful glyphs.

They are feared due to the intense discipline that their group maintains, due to their origins as a warrior-sect.

They serve as paid thugs, enforcers and assassins within the city, with the client simply ordering a service from the organization, not hiring an individual. Apart from making the request and providing payment in full in advance, the order completes the assignment themselves.

Their order has many moles through the organizations of the city, and more than a couple of nobles. As such, no organized move has been made against them since their chief activity is directed against other members of the crime world. It is said that their services have been useful for those in power as well, further protecting them from persecution.

Their religion holds that their time in this world is vanishingly brief, and largely unimportant except as training for the Great Battle.

The order is very utilitarian with weapons choice - they simply use the tool needed for the occasion, though not without having trained extensively with it beforehand. Daggers, garrottes, swords, bows, battle axes, polearms, wagons, even siege engines have been used to carry out their contracts.
