Its intricate knitting defining all description, the hyperdoily is the world’s best resting place for cookies.

Full Item Description
Strangely, the outside edge of the hyperdoily is geometrically perfectly circular, improbable at best for a hand-knit thing. The threads of its construction, whose patterns bend the eye in a pleasingly painful arc, thread through the spectrum of colors as well, seemingly at random, though only through colors for which man has no name.

The hyperdoily was created one cold winter’s afternoon, when a bored maid found the spool of threads of space-time left over when Alfred Uhrzeit had finished his mighty golem. And having thread and needle, but not much thread, she sat down and started to knit a doily, thinking that the master might like his pastries served on it. Little did she know what she was making, until she was found with it in hand, perfectly, magically stilled.

Magic/Cursed Properties
Coiled from the stuff of space time itself, the hyperdoily does a magnificent job of tangling time in its immediate area. So much so, in fact, that anything directly touching the hyperdoily is effectively immune to the flow of time - while it will continue to exist, it is ‘outside’ the passage of time, rendering it in a state of perfect stasis, until it is removed from the doily.

Sweet. Silly. Simple. I would love to see a necromancer place it atop the head of a powerful zombie he didn't want to rot.

"You see a massive grotesque brute made of human remains lumbering towards you, it has a doily upon it's head."

I don't think the brute could lumber all that effectively with the doily sitting on it, since it'd pretty much be sitting to the side of time's arrow at that point.

Oh, hey, this would be an awesome way to deal with a troublesome kidnapped person or political prisoner; the feisty young queen whose throne was usurped can't very well escape if she's sitting in the corner of the royal storeroom, in a sealed crate, with the doily tucked into her coiffure, and that troublesome royal wizard the doppelganger or homunculus is impersonating can't show up to spoil the show if he's locked in a bedroom closet, doily under his hat.

Amazingly useful little trinket.

Makes it handy as a beer insulator, or a way of transporting something important but perishable, like a heart transplant.

I want a set, immune to time cold and hot drinks retain their temperature, as would food.

Does it pass through like a current of electricity, or does an object have to be in direct contact with it? (i.e. does it need to be moved through magic, or can you just use a pair of gloves/tongs?)

When I asked Siren, he said direct contact; so a pair of tongs would be all you'd need to move it around.

If you put it on someone asleep, does it keep them asleep, young, and preserved from blisters ect?

Now this is applied string theory! :)

Silly, but yes, there are so many uses for it. Short and sweet.

You Can't Go Home Again -- Thomas Hardy

       By: rickster

An adventuress, Semma, has returned to her home village, but something has gone badly wrong: it's the furtive glances, the conversations that stop when she approaches, the childhood friends who now have no time for her. She returns to the town or city and enlists your party to help her find out what's going on.

The party must find out what is wrong: something (perhaps a Cthulhoid monster, perhaps a gang of vampires, perhaps just a bunch of bandits) is extorting obedience from the villagers by threatening their loved ones with at least death. Once the source is discovered, Semma and the party and a few brave yeomen (and women) must deal with the threat by finding its base and defeating it, and then deal with the remnant corrupted villagers who willingly served the Evil Force. These may prove to be the most difficult foe...
