The Green Rose


It is a green rose created by a god long ago to give to his mortal lover.

In his garden, far away from the mortal realm, a god worked and toiled everyday to create beautiful flowers for his wife. But one day, when he came down to the planet in disguise, he spotted a beautiful mortal girl and immediately fell in love with her. The flowers he grew for his wife started to lose their beauty, but the ones he grew for the mortal girl were beyond beautiful.

Her favorite flower, however, was a green rose the god created. However, the god’s wife found out about the mortal girl and became jealous. She killed the girl out of jealousy and burn down the god’s flower garden. Fortunately, the god was able to save a handful of the green roses his mortal lover adored. He took the green roses and scattered them across the planet in remembrance of his mortal lover.

Magical Properties:

The Green Rose (or its petals rather) can cure all poisons, blindness, and can bring any mortal back from near-death. It also worth a lot of money and many would die to look at it just once for the sheer beauty of such a simple flower. Unfortunately, the Green Rose is extremely rare and very difficult to find.

Not only should it be rare and difficult to find, the god's wife would likely not like the reminder of her husbands infidelity and destroy the flowers and transfer some anger to be directed towards the user. She might not just outright smite anyone she finds useing one, but life could become interesting.

Dangerously so.

Another odd thought, perhaps the god who made the rose has become distraught and dilusional what with his wife curseing his existance, and for a goddess, that carries some weight. Maybe he has become attuned to the roses, feels the loss of every one his wife destroys, feels the growth of every new one like the children he never got to have with his mortal love. And if one gets used, maybe he thinks it's his mortal love come back.

How do you deal with the dilusional advances of god?

Yeah, I definitely think the item, while helpful in obvious ways should be cursed. Maybe some favored animal or somesuch of the goddess would continually hunt down whoever possessed this.

An interesting item that could be used in the average campaign. I would say it could use more detail, but I doubt that Siren365 ventures into the Citadel any longer.

This is rather good actually, but it is just an idea at this point. It should be more fleshed out.

Yeah, more fleshing out and it'll be great.

Same as what other said, more details would be good. As it currently stands, it's more complete than a 2 but has less content required for a 3 so hence a 2.5 this is for me.

A simple bit of folklore that can add depth to the medicinal flower. Not bad.

A large river that is continuously covered in a thick layer of fog. There will be either a rope ferry to get across or possibly a boat that is rowed across by worshippers of the water elementals. It is very thick fog to the point where it even muffles voices even at close range and visibility even beyond a foot is almost impossible.
