Ring of Procrastination

By:

It is a good looking ring. It is handsome and worth quite a bit.

Sometimes, when it is too hard to kill or kidnap someone who is investigating a cult and the person cannot be bribed to go away, some other way must be used.

This gold ring (sometimes a signet ring), within an hour of wearing it, causes lazyness. The wearer will be distracted from work (or any cause they believe in) by the slightest thing. He would much rather rest or enjoy him or herself. If ill, it makes the illness seem worse then it really is so the wearer will want bed rest for days beyond what is needed. It does not in fact make the illness worse in reality, at least, not directly.

After a few days, if the wearer tries to take the ring off, he/she will be too lazy to do so. The wearer will never become too lazy to eat or drink, but might easily lose his/her job.

Should someone take the ring off, for a few hours the wearer will be hyperactive.

Very nice! One could easily ruin a kingdom in this way by slipping it to the king.

I like it a lot. This is one of the most practical mind effecting items I have ever seen. A lot of potential, however an item like this should not be mentioned so casually I think. Keep in mind that the mental effect here is rather potent. This Item should be a bit rarer I think, but otherwise really good work on the Idea.

Also, If you do make it more rare, then you should definitely add a backstory. In fact, you should probably add in one anyway, you know, just about how some person put it on, and it caused their death or downfall.

This is truly a cursed item i whished i thought of it. Make it appear to be a beneficial ring, and many adventurerswill slip it on towards their doom.

A simple but effective way to reduce opposition to be sure. A gentle item that could still see a lot of use.

One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).
