This is a nicely generic class item. Something useful, but not too powerful for the players to have. I would have liked some more background on the initials and any stories related to this item. Good work, though.

This is a good item, but I would like more background, and perhaps a history of somekind, who made, why, hwhat happened to it, what is it made of, is it hard to make, etc.
Other then that it looks good, and will soon be in my campaign.

What do the initials O.N. mean? That seems like an important detail. This is a good item, but it needs more background.

I like the name for these precious picks. Like Zylithan, I'd like to know more about O.N. Also, I would like to say a quick hello to Tebucatta. I have never corresponded with a kender before. Thats a cool name, Tebucatta.

You might consider making a bunch of these nicely generic items and putting them in the same sub together. Maybe 30 thieves' tools or something. Otherwise, I agree with those who have come before me: this item would really benefit from some fleshing out -- more background, notes on use and limitations, etc.

I never knew this citadel, back when 100 words was standard, not a novel approach revisionist approach. If the citadel is still around 2023, than it would be interesting to see what the submissions are like then.

I going to bet the move to fiction will have taken over by that point.

I like the mystery of O.N. but would also be interested in knowing what the author envisioned. Somewhere, perhaps, Nimblefinder is out there working the jobs and wearing the pants of grown ups. He may reflect sometime on the RPG days of his youth and the days when he thought of himself as a bit of a writer and do google search for his old handle.

She/He will find that Nimblefinder did have large on-line presence, and hopefully he will pass up Literotica, and RPG cats (other fiction-esque posting sites with a nimblefinder) to go make few nostalgic posts on the citadel. We can only hope......

This might have been a very old sub submitted in the early days and while this sub is complete, I cannot really view it as a solid sub given the sparsity of details so I will have to vote 2.5 unfortunately.

I'm stepping back in time! These are perfectly fine lockpicks, but today's Strolenite craves more! MORE! MORE!! A richer back story would be fantastic! Who is O.N!?!?

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.
