Phoenix Feed


Firey food for your favorite feathered friend.

Deep within the Plane of Fire, there is a great valley where the Phoenix makes its rest. Upon the slopes of the valley there is a tall grass which grows no where else in the planes. In the late summer, this grass bears seed, a shimmering orange seed, which some of the spirits who serve Zevarith may harvest and dry.

From time to time, these seeds are sold to planar travellers, so that the servants of Zevarith may have resources upon the prime that do not come directly from their lord. In turn, this seed fetches a prime price from hawksmen and nobility upon the prime: The profit is well worth the danger to those who can ply this trade.

Magical Properties:

When the dried Phoenix Feed is fed to a bird of any sort, for the next two hours, the bird’s feathers and talons burn, with no injury to the bird. This effectively grants a ‘flame aura’ ability to the bird when it attacks or is attacked. This aura does not ressurect the bird when slain.

If eaten by a human or demi-human, horrible, horrible heartburn results.

So once this bird eats these seeds, not even their owner can approach them, lest they be burned to a crisp? An interesting idea nonetheless - A nice, more mundane item, than those we have been seeing lately.

Imagine throwing these seeds into a flock of pigeons, then running through the pigeons to scatter them away - it would be a good way of burning down a town ;)

I'd give this a 3.5/5, but since I cant do that, I'll give it a 4/5

This could be very useful for entertainers - not to use every day, but as an occasional grand climax. For example, if a kingdom had the legend of its founding based around a phoenix, a grand performance of this legend for the king's jubilee could incorporate birds fed with Pheonix Feed.

Planes! Mundane items related to legendary beings! The removal of a "magic" feeling from stuff. I'm sorry, I can't agree with the above.

Hot wings! Get your hot wings here!

Chaos ensues. I like it. 4/5

Throw a single seed into a flock of pigeons - you get one fiery pigeon and two dozen roasted ones. Umm! Tasty!

These are great - to address CP's point, the seeds that do this could actually have no direct relationship to real Pheonix's, but the effect invokes their imagery.

They have a Harry Potter feel to them to me.

The Door

A nifty little encounter appropriate for any powerful sorcerer/magically adept monsters lair.

When the party have penetrated to an appropriatly impressive level/room they encounter The Door, this door is a vessel through which the Sorcerer/Monster can safely work against any intruders, the door is heavy duty iron bound studded oak wrought with craft skill and magic, set in the middle is a crystal orb, once the party get within a preset distance the orb flickers briefly as the door warns its "master" of the intruders, the master can then effectivly possess the door itself, this means that all movement the door is capable of (i.e. opening and closing) come under the control of the master, the master can also cast spells from the door as if he were there himself, all the while any damage that is inflicted in return merely damages the door, this will in effect ruin any of the parties chances of surprise, allow the master to assess the parties abilities while remaining safe and sound and finally will probably cause the party to waste some of their juicier items/spells on a chunk of wood and iron, and if the master happens to have a deadly spell or three it could also reduce the size of the party,

Of course if you wanted to be really nasty you could have the door open to admit one person and then slam shut on the second person (squish) whilst blasting away with every spell in the mastrs repetoir
