The Dolman Copy- a copy of the Malachrite Falcon

By:

There are dozens of copies of the Malachrite Falcon, most of which are decoys or mcguffins for a variety of cons and scams. Some of these Falcons are somewhat famous in their own rights, as they will have colorful histories.

The Dolman (named for the city of its origin) has such a colorful history of its own. It was used by a local Evil Cult as bait to draw out any other occult groups in their area. They dropped rumors and left clues to tantilize the occult orriented. They created an elaborate mini-temple that was trapped to capture adventurous or greedy souls. The trap was successfully sprung a number of times. Those poor fools were then sacrificed to the Dark God. Some of the energy was syphoned off into the Dolman Falcon to enhance its "mystical" qualities AND to be used for later magics.

After a few decades of the trap working, the Dolman Falcon developed a great deal of mystic energy power. It developed into more than a mere battery. It became an actual generator of magical energies, increasing the amount of magic around the item.

Eventually, someone escaped with the prize. While they were disappointed that it did not hold the KNOWLEDGE OF THE AGES, but a mystical energy generator is still worth having. The owner was short lived, as others wanted the Dolman Falcon for themselves. Many think it is the Malachite Falcon. Others know it is a copy, but covet it for its supposed magical powers. The cult continues to dog the owner of the Dolman to regain the item.

Even in the tomb hunting and occult circles, The Dolman is currently lost to history. Every now and again rumors of it resurface, and people scramble in that direction.

Ah a nice take on an old favorite. The Maltese Falcon if I am not mistaken. A decent version. I will need ot view the real Malachrite Falson to see if it holds up to par with the fake version. Well done Moon.

I'll throw a paw up there for you.

Man-Eating Grapes!

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry, if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes. The grapes literally eat the victim from the inside out, via cell death, dissolving organs and flesh in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, from the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
