Portable Doorknocker


Got a small character who can’t knock as loud as you would like?  Or maybe you’ve got sensitive fingers?  Worry no longer, the portable doorknocker is here!

Full Item Description
Portable door knockers can come in any shape or size really as long as they have two things in common.  A flat hinge piece which connects to the door, and the knocker.

The most basic ones are simply just that flat piece and a brass ring, however it’s not unheard of someone making one that looks like a lion or other majestic or frightening creature to add a sense of style to their doors.

The sales pitch often used to sell these to anyone willing to cough up the money for one is surprisingly accurate as this item really was created by a mage who despite all the dangers he had survived in his life was very sensitive.  Knocking on doors would often leave him with sore fingers, and in the case of the young fop he had for a neighbor who would often have loud parties, it would leave him unheard as well.

Not wanting to be rude enough to use his magic in an overly intrusive manner to catch people’s attention when knocking on their doors, the mage enchanted a door knocker he had laying around for this very use.

Magic/Cursed Properties
When the flat piece of this device is placed against another flat surface, the item attaches itself as if firmly secured by screws though there is actually nothing holding it place other then the magic of the item.

Though made for a door knocker, there has been cases of giants using decorative ones as a form of body jewelry.

Sore fingers? I think that is hilarious!

Great for a quick diversion as well. Plant it for a consistant noise and go the other way. I would imagine it would work on any wood items and could be an interesting prank or used in the woods, again as a diversion of sorts or to mark a starting point in an obvious way in a mysterious fog or something. I don't know, just a fun, interesting item!

This Item makes me happy. I wish we had a little more room for little things like this sometimes. Not everything should be apocalyptic in scale.

Both silly and usable, as has been noted.

I'm sure some Dryad somewhere thought they would make great earings. :p Or you could attatch one to a wooden golem of some sort during battle and use it to pull it off balance or have the archer in the group shoot a rope through it and hoist the golem into the air. Of course, once it's up there, you can take turns to see who can hit it the hardest. :p

As has been said previously, an amusing and usable post. It is a little short though. :(
