Riding Crop of Command


“He looks so regal in his riding gear, carrying his riding crop.”  “He looks good without it. He always carries his crop too. He just loves riding.”

Full Item Description
A normal black riding crop with some red thread woven into the handle, making it distinctive and quite handsome.

Magic/Cursed Properties
The item only works when being tucked under the arm, or in hand. It is primarily an object for men. When a man holding it, he seems more handsome than he is. Everyone feels his commanding presence and in many cases feels slightly inferior to him. This gives him an edge in dealing with people. Sometimes the weak willed or those of low self esteem will automatically follow his commands.

This feeling translates into pluses to charisma related abilities and skills, as everyone feels slightly inferior to him (minor minuses to charm or mind control to a spell saves against him if holding the crop). if the crop is used in the command (like “sit”, swatting the chair or the person), then additional bonuses are added.

This is a cunning item. It is uncommon, even in the magic teachings of the Evil Cults. Some trades souls for it, others learn the spells related to it. The form might vary some, but it is always an item of direction (a maestro’s baton, a lion tamer’s whip, etc).

If a female finds the crop in her regular possession, a few things occur.  She initially appears more beautiful because of her commanding presence.  That illusion slowly wears off as she who wields it becomes overly dominating, excessively loud and demanding, and more forward than is socially acceptable. With continued usage, she will physically change.. getting more athletic, but taking on more handsome, than beautiful look.  Of course, the commanding presence grants all the bonuses it does to a man.

Lol. It's a cute idea. I don't see how it should be so much better for a man than a woman, but that's the authors' prerogative. (I think men can be offensive in the same ways as women if they appear to controlling, but I do understand your point about what society accepts... of course that depends on the society.) I suppose it depends on the subject.

Another piece of equipment that would be useful for your stylish Evil person. And after the good guys off them, it would be just another piece of junk sold at the estate sale.

An interesting form of a practical item, but I too have to wonder why it's masculine oriented. It's perfectly fine that it is, but I'd like some sort of history or explanation.

This should be compiled with other mature items, like the "Vampiric Panties" for easier reference access. :)

Really not a codex I would put my name to.  It would be Torture Devices and Techniques all over again.

For Alchemist above...
The system won't let me look at the previous PM post)

This is part of the "Garage Sale from Hell" Codex.  Thus it is all about magical items owned by an Evil Cultist (whom nobody knows is an Evil Cultist) who dies, and all their items are sold in an garage/ estate sale

This item does not much history or explanation because 1) it is part of that codex and 2) it is a "common enchantment", with the knowledge of how to make such items, passed around among the Evil Cultist community. (In this case, it is part spell, part demonic deal)   Much the same way nobody discusses the origin of the common enchantment +1 weapon, no detailed explanation was needed.

This item was made for a male Evil Cultist.  You could reverse the genders of it quite easily.
