The Cutting Board of Decay

By:

The cutting board is made of wood and there are pictures of apples etched to the corners. This item is somewhat cursed

Full Item Description
The cutting board is made of wood and there are pictures of apples etched to the corners. It is a very pretty object and when out of use. You can detect no “wrongness to it”, if not counting a slight smell of onions. But, when things are cut on it, they quickly start rotting and wrinkling. Sometimes maggots appear from nowhere, squirming out of the food. Even things that are not food will start aging on the board - paper turns yellow, metals corrodes and so on - but it’s slower with them.

History
This item was created by a demonic pact with a demon whos tastes rant to the rotten. It has passed from owner, to owner, to owner, as people often wish to be done with it.

Magic/Cursed Properties
See Above.

For normal people the only good use for this item would be to put raw vegetables on it and watch them turn ripe, but they have a good chance of rotting instead. It can also make items look like antique but if left too long on the board, they will turn into a powdery form.

I really like this post. It's short, but I love the details (slight smell of onion) and how to delve into its potential uses (despite being cursed!) to ripen fruit and make antiques. Now... how do I get my players to pick up a cutting board? ;-p

Dalme might be a good vector for this item to appear in a campaign, but he would have to be careful... or have the curse activate after someone has had the board for a moon or so.

This is one of my favorite items. A bigger version of this could be used for the execution of prisoners or for funerals.

neat idea, tightly executed, a little more back story would have been nice, just one more sentence. defining perhaps the other side of the pact?

A very simple item, a doorway item perhaps. Its presence might weaken the barriers so to speak.

This is a pretty little cursed item. Like Axlerowes, I kind of wish I knew a little more about it, but it's nice enough on its own.

Bag on a Stick

Very simple gag but a great one, since it can be used multiple times over, even in the same adventure. Great for tribal natives gone restless and humanoids, but anyone can have set this up. Just what the header says, a simple bag over a stick stuck in the ground or floor.

As GM you can place the bag on a stick anywhere, in a floor crack the heroes have passed before, outdoors in a clearing or path, or at the edge of the PCs' encampment the following morning, what have you. Place anything on the stick - a coiled yellow viper angered by the bag removal, mini crossbow w/poison, transdermal hallucinatory drug dusted on the bag, yellow mold colony, an NPC ally's head, a weapon, scroll tube or satchel, what have you.

The idea is to build tension and/or stall for time/distract the party. Provided it's used properly, you'll be amazed at how paranoid players will get from this simple gag.
