Mug of Blood


The mundane-looking "Sanguine Coffee Cup." A ceramic monstrosity that holds something said to be thicker than water.

The Mug of Blood: Description

A ceramic coffee mug with a witty phrase scribed upon its surface. The glossy finish, and standard shape and design, is almost iconic enough to wake you up in the morning without the company of your favorite hot-brewed beverage. Be it coffee or tea, some people just need their caffeinated drink to get up and face the day.

But... What happens when your coffee gets to that lukewarm phase. That less-than-desirable bitter taste of java that just isn't hot enough anymore, but isn't cold enough to be as refreshing as an iced latte? That's when the Mug of Blood takes effect.


The Mug of Blood will, over time, turn any liquid you fill it with into the consistency and taste of blood. The closer the liquid is to room temperature, the stronger the effect. Extremely hot or cold beverages may taste the same as normal. However, once the liquid starts to cool off or warm up a little, the taste and color will become more like that of blood until it might as well be blood. It is not actually blood, and as such, it will not nourish a vampire or suffice in your sacrifices.

This is an item intended as a practical joke for a modernized game with some light magic. It should be relatively simple to transmute one liquid into another in most settings with magic. This effect, being permanently imbued into an item, is typically subject to more limitation. This submission was written with The Garage Sale From Hell on my mind. Enjoy!

I like it. I could see this being given to some red-herring NPC by mistake, and then the party would start thinking that he was some evil necromancer/demon/lawyer that drinks the blood of the living for breakfast.

This would be popular with the Vampire wannabies :P

Would the taste and consistency be enough to trick a full vampire. Could end up being the key to weakening one in order to actually have a chance at defeating it.

Very unusual, definitely needs to be sold in the garage sale. :)

The garage sale from hell is alwys welcome.

Note: the thing will be especially unpleasant and hard to explain if spilled.
Getting blood stains out of clothes and carpets is quite difficult and evokes suspicion, after all.

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
