The Horn of a Fakast

By:

The everful horn of a vengeful bull-like creature who wants it back…

The Fakastr are a race of semi-intelligent, massive, brutal bull-like creatures who grow limbs back after they have been hacked off, with a single exception. Their horns. The horns, when severed, remain alive and the Fakastr see it as a great dishonour to lose one. They always attempt to retrieve lost horns, escaping and travelling miles to seek out the owner and punish them. They can sense the presence of their horn and instinctively follow it, sometimes across continents…

The Fakastr are used by the people of Ichyria as entertainment: there are fighting rings where men contest the beasts and try to render them harmless. Of course the advantage is that any lost limbs grow back and the same Fakast can be used for many fights.

It is seen as a great prize for a Toreador-Warrior to hack off a horn of his Fakast, and Fakastr with no horns left are generally considered no good for the fighting ring.

Of course this is only known in Ichyria. In Malista, thousands of miles away, a severed horn has come into the hands of thieves and confidence tricksters. It has the strange property of filling up with a sweet red liquid when left overnight (of course the horn is still alive, so its fibres are still producing blood*). This they sell to the PCs as an “everful drinking horn” at a high price.

Can you imagine their faces when the Fakast turns up?



Magical Properties:
The item will eventually regrow into a full monsterous critter if left alone. 

As an added curse you could make any drinker of the horn-blood gradually transmogrify into a Fakast.

Make it sweet, with bonuses while fighting etc. Easier to rage, like its former owner. Let them realize later they sipped BLOOD all the time.

While the bloody horn isnt that awesome, I would like to know more about the Fakasts. They sound like they have alot of game potential and might be related to trolls.

An ideal way to pull the PCs into the morally challenged ranks of the Gray. Fakast: "Gimme horn!"
PC: "No way! It gives me +2 STR!"
GM: "I think we should re-think your alignment :)"

1971 Dodge DynaMax

       By: Scrasamax

The Dodge DynaMax is a rare care, coming at exactly the wrong time in history. The End of the muscle car era was nigh, and the market was already filled out with GTOs, Mustangs, Camaros, Chevelles, Novas and a dozen other high performance poor handling vehicles. The DynaMax had a plan to dominate the market with a combination of factory turbochargers and a complex eight speed gearbox. The machine was planned to triumph over the human driver element. What ended up happening was excess costs and mechanical issues saw the turbochargers removed and replaced with a conventional supercharger, and the eight speed transmission ended up being the bane of the car's existence. More DynaMaxes were destroyed or totalled by transmission failures than anything else. The car remains an ugly and ambitious reminder of a day gone by
