Librarian's Cravat

By:

An item of clothing designed to let librarians reach those books which everyone wants to borrow and are therefore left on the highest shelf.

Instead of buying a lot of stepladders or letting librarians have fun on sliding ladders attached to the bookcases, the Library of All Knowledge and Wisdom provides each of its librarians with a cravat.  This enchanted artifact allows them to float up to the highest bookshelves to retrieve books annoyingly left there.  In order to reduce the cost of the innumerable number of cravats that would need to be made they reduced the floating time to one minute a day.
Although no one outside the library is supposed to own one of these cravats some of the Roaming Librarians (who go into the world to seek for any knowledge that may have accidentaly not been included in the original library) have taken their cravats out of the building and then carelessly got themselves killed by beasties, releasing their cravats into the world.

Magical Properties:

The person who wears the cravat in the correct fashion, that of the Library Knot, can float for (in total) one minute a day, on and off.  To activate the cravat, give the end a pull.  The same is true to de-activate it.

Interestingly humorous description, though overall it is uninspired. Better, at least, than the ring of absolutely nothing, though.

3/5.

The general idea is fun, but I do wonder why they say the thing would be less expensive if you can float only a minute a day.... That way most librarians would actualy need a couple of these Cravates, so in the end you would end up having to spend more money...

A simple commodity item for a world likely rife with magic.

Termites, in certain places, make homes that can be eight meters high and only a half meter wide. They are built facing North to South to take advantages of the suns travel, maximum heat in the morning and evening and little in the afternoon. Imagine grassy plains with vertical structions facing a certain direction all over the place. Ambush? Maze? New creature? Larger structures?
