Pillow of Sleep


It is a nice fluffy pillow, filled with soft down, covered in a soft, nice fabric. It is soooo comfortable. *yawn* You could just nod offffff when layyyying on .......... *snore*

Full Item Description
It is your standard fluffy feather pillow. The stitching on the borders are quite elaborate, but it looks more like a sign of quality rather than arcane patterning.

This is a classic enchantment, part of most spell colleges. The creator of this enchantment has been lost to history.

Magic/Cursed Properties
Soon after one lays on or sits upon the item, they will feel relaxed. They will then feel drowsey. Soon they will drop into a deep deep sleep.  If kept in contact with the pillow, they can not awaken for at least 8 hours, possible more if they are used to sleeping in, fatigued, or tired.

This is not an Evil item per say. It is a handy part of the Evil Cultist toolkit.

This is an excellent tool for evil cultists, allowing them to kidnap people out from their beds or couches with a minimum of fuss or muss. They can even give it to the victim’s spouse/ sleeping partner, so they can then kidnap the victim and no amount of screaming or noise will wake them. It just takes another break in to eventually reclaim the pillow.

You know, I am kind of overwhelmed of all those items that turn you to evil and make you a bad boy. This is a nice and innocent enough addition for any Evil Cultist or a hospital.

Logical and sweet, perfect for resting. I can well imagine creating a slightly weaker variant when the sleeper can wake up to strong stimuli from outside.

Note: it wasn't said, but it has to: really rough handling or wounding the sleeper will break the spell.

I agree with what manfred said, but I judge from main site standards. This site certainly has promise, but like all MoonHunter posts it is a good ideas posted for remembrance and not for presentation. Too short and too little detail.

Not every item is an "epic piece". Many items are just "standard enchantments" that any worker of magic might have access to.

People tend to forget simple, uselful items, that would make the mage a good income. If magic and enchantment's exist, this is an "every mage" sort of spell/ item. Not every mage is going to make a +12 sword of epic slaying. Why spend decades of your life making this thing, while you can bump out a couple of dozen of these pillows a year, make a good living that allows you to "see the world" and "seek a little adventure" now and again.

Aurora, where are you?

Fluffy magic item I so want. I understand that it should be a common magic item that mages make to pay the bills so they can get down to some real magic. I also see that this is a serious part of the Evil Bad Guy tool kit.

I fourth the desire to own one. It's simply so practical I don't feel it needs any real explanation. It's not a 5/5 post that makes you go "Woah... must... use..." but any DM or even a player can come up with a dozen clever uses for it. I especially like that it doesn't have that overwhelming aura of evil so many things have, it just has uses and 'misuses'.

Thus you understand the purpose of the item. It is a filler,an equipment list item, something that logically would exist in the world. In fact, many "good" or respectable talismongers or enchanters would make such an item,. It just has.... uses.

Now if you are in a low magic/ low enchantment world, then it is an Evil Cultist specialty. Promise some things to a spirit... and poof a magic item.

Nomadic Library

       By: Murometz

Saril had a dream. To open a library in the windswept wastes of Naarish, so that the people of the many villages and towns spread over the hundreds of leagues of desert could discover the joys of his books. For a whole year he kept his library open, but alas, almost no one came.

That is when Saril came up with his new idea. If people didn't travel to read his books, he would travel to them! Saril closed his library, hired a team of twelve camels, loaded up the beasts with all of his books and proceeded to invent the first nomadic library.

Now children and adults alike, looked forward to hearing the bells of Saril's camels as he entered their villages, as he tirelessly traversed the deserts in a long circuitous route, visiting every village and town he came across, in turn. It came to pas that Saril's traveling library came to some fame, and that is how the folk of Naarish became literate.

A word of warning though. Naarish has only six thousand volumes. He deals with those that lose or steal his tomes quite "harshly", by bypassing the town or village which was responsible for losing one of his books for that calendar year.
