Quantum Sheen


"What does this marveous ointment do you ask? It’s easily worth the 50 gold an ounce I’m selling it to you for my friend, I can promise you that. ... You still want to know what it does? Well, it ... it sorta ... and then it ... Here! Just try a sample here and see!"

Full Item Description
Quantum Sheen is a fantastic susbstance. It’s origin are unknown, perhaps created by some odd God of Chaos, perhaps it IS a God of Chaos. It wouldn’t even be available if the method for its production hadn’t been discovered.

Quantum Sheen behaves differently when exposed to different situations and primarily act radically different when it’s being observed. The only known method of producing it involves molding a container form out of salt pork while not blinking, forming a layer of sand over the salt pork without looking at the sand, then coating the sand with Quantum Sheen behind your back. The Salt Pork is then displaced and a glass jar the size of the form remains filled completly with more Quantum Sheen. No one claims credit for the discovery.

Magic/Cursed Properties

When quantum sheen is coated on items they take on different effects and abilites, sometimes desired, but rarely controled. Think "Oil of Wonder". A weapon coated with it may become a flaming sword against goblins and limp spagetti against Gnolls. Armor could be silenced so long as it has fresh flowers adorning it, or become mist when struck by sling bullets.

This item makes me desire a table with many random effects. :)

But I heard it is really a fraud, a slightly psychedelic substance that makes it's users believe it has all sorts of mysterious effects. Anyone who tries it is crazy.

There is a 50% chance that a cat was involved in this.

"Try a sample? Er... no. I've met what's left of your last customer. Get that stuff away from me."

The Dust of Ages

       By: Wulfhere

The ancient Empire of the Golden Crystal fell so long ago that little is known of them besides their legendary magical power. Supposedly, in the Golden Age of the Crystal Empire, cities were filled with enchantment, spells far beyong the ability of modern magi.

A tomb robber has returned to civilization with something never seen before: Ceramic vials of reddish dust that supposedly enhance a magician's power tremendously when the dust is sprinkled upon the floor of his workroom. The rogue selling the vials claims that they were recovered from a ruin of the Crystal Empire, but can he be believed?
