Jamil's Bain

By:

Plain looking dagger. However, when the dagger is seen in the light of an open flame Jamil’s hand print is on the hilt from where he gripped it in his death.

Magical Properties:

Increases percentage to hit by 75% and damage by 50%. Bonus are there only when used by a mage. However when the mage is in a life or death situation the dagger will fail. The bonus are reversed percentage to hit is decreased by 75% and damage is decreased by 50%.

This is due to a mage name Jamil casting a curse on the blade when it failed him in a fight for his life.

A nice item: although short it establishes its sinister personality and abilities well. I like it.

An intresting idea... A dagger that is both enchanted and cursed. I make the distinction, as it is very well possible that the dagger can help you, it also may actualy be a curse to use it.

A classic case of the GameMaster giveth, and the GameMaster taketh away.

Whenever you in combat isn't it a life or death situation, especially for wizards/mages? Anyway. 4/5

Definitely one for those parties that insist on casting Detect Magic and Identify on everything they find...

"It has a surprisingly strong magical aura, but Identify determined that it only works for Wizards. It has some other property, that appears to be hidden."

"Cool! I'm taking it!"

What kills me is that this was updated in 2007

Okay, an interesting idea.  Nothing special.

Talk about a sub just begging for some additional ideas.

I think I would make the curse activate whenever the mage was alone and/or outnumbered.

I agree that this piece could really use some fleshing out, but it's a solid idea to start with. Would love to see a quest centered around removing the curse or appeasing the dead spirit of Jamil.

Echoing what Dossta said.

Which way is he going?

       By: Murometz

Molk Peruda is encountered by the PCs on the second day of their journey west from the salt-choked port of Quyn, as they prepare to explore the jungle.

He appears a gaunt, wolfish man, with matted, dark hair that sprouts from his head in dreadlocks, contrasting with his well-oiled, blue-black, conical beard. His eyes are hidden ebon shards beneath thick arching brows, his nose, crooked, long, and reminiscent of a snout. His mouth is a thin, dark line, his teeth unseen even when he parts his lips to speak.

His skin is the color of tallow, surprising perhaps for a renowned jungle guide, yet his natural helm of dreads and the jungle's canopy keeps the sun from bronzing his originally pale flesh. On his back are tattooed three women from the waist up, side-by-side, each resembling the other but of different ages. This is a tattoo of Molk's mother, sister, and daughter. His wife (don't bring her up to him!) was killed by marauding Qullan years ago, and appears as her own tattoo on his broad but sunken chest.

His feet shockingly are turned around 180 degrees at the ankle, facing towards his back! A curse from a pernicious shaman. Molk walks feet backwards (he's used to it) and walks backwards, forwards. This can be very disconcerting and outright creepy to the PCs as he guides them through the rainforest.

Slung from his back is an archer's quarrel of treated wood carved to resemble a stalking leopard, in his hand a re-curved composite bow of horn and sinew, with a pair of vivid, red eyes, each one painted on the opposite side of the hand-grip. In a leather sheath at his belt, hangs a falchion, its pommel adorned with a curved bird's head and beak.
