Insig Gem

By:

Small green gem about the size of a large thumb. When touched by somebody other then the current owner without his consent it immediately shrinks the person that touches to half his size.

Made as a joke by a good intentioned wizard. He had a good friend that just happened to have a habit of touching things in the wizard’s lab without permission sometimes causing some unwanted mishaps. The gem, created to try and curb this compulsion, would shrink the person that touched it to half their size. It became useless when his friend was killed meddling in the business of a not-so-pleasant mage.Magical Properties:Upon touch by somebody other then the current owner it shrinks them to half their current size. Any natural resistance is automatically neutralized by the power of the spell.

Shrinking of people may be useful if trying to hide in shadows or in places an (over) average-sized hero would not fit. Or let your halfling explore some rat-hole. What's the duration?

I think this could be a scroll for all sorts of look-but-dont-touch things that a mage might leave in his stuff to deter people from touching. These could be limited to the comical to alarming for a good aligned mage, such as the toucher turning a vibrant color, or their voice turning into deafening animal noises. For a more evil wizard, there could certainly be a vivacious black idol that when touched turns the toucher into a nearly mindless carrion crawler for several hours. Later when they revert to human with a mouthful of rotten orc intestine they have learned a valuable lesson.

Thieves Guild jingle:

We represent the Lollipop Guild
The Lollipop Guild, the Lollipop Guild
And in the name of the Lollipop Guild
We wish to welcome you to Munchkin Land

(They keep trying to steal the gem, you see, and-----)

Interesting idea, though the "Any natural resistance " would be turfed in a heartbeat. This is a human-made item, not made by the gods..

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
