The Orb of Craft


A powerfull Orb made by Hardom, the Elven god of the crafting of magical items. Its porpose was to stop the constant requests by the Elves.

The god Hardom was very kind and willing to make items for the Elves of Erma, but it was getting really annoying to have to appear every day to bless an Anti-Sneezing Amulet, or to charm an old woman’s cutlery. Finally, Hardom was fed up with it, and told everyone that the King would be doing the job from then on. After a week or two, the King started to crack under the pressure, and begged Hardom to reconsider. Hardom said that the next day, he would return with an item to make his job easier. The next day, he came with an Orb. The orb glowed with a soft silver light, and was a handspan in diameter.

Magical Properties:

Magic item created by an annoyed god, and it doesnt have any good quirk or sarcastic drawback? This has potential, otherwise it just belongs on the Munchkin's utility belt.

Not a very interesting backstory. If the god was so annoyed, why didn't he curse them or something? Or put a nasty little drawback on the Orb?
And why is its name so boring?

1/5. Sorry again.

DnDNewbie: Please, before you post any more random items or npcs, could you please look over some of the other posts... focusing on the four and five star posts... that way you will be able to see the kind of information on items we are looking for.

The reason why the god didn't curse the people was because he was kind, and he liked the Elves

Now, DnD-newbie, don't discard all the comments and brush them aside. They're well-meant. This item is boring and over-powered, especially in your beloved DnD: what is to stop the mage from creating any item he wishes if he does not have to pay the exp cost?

Sessiliths (name based on the word sessile) are gargoyle-type creatures which are stationary, attached to the stone of whichever foundation they are bound to. Though they can move their extremities and limbs they are unable to move away from their particular perch. In lieu of swooping down and attacking like their mobile cousins the gargoyles proper, sessiliths are equipped with their own brand of mischief. The creatures are all able to verbalize and thus usually hurl vile insults and curses upon passersby. The cumulative effects of dozens of sessiliths cursing, screaming, and speaking in tongues, can have an effect of temporary confusion (or even discord) in those forced to listen to the shrieking stone gremlins.

Additionally, most possess the ability to "spout" or spit forth various undesirable projections, such as tar, boiling water, or even acid. While they can usually be avoided easily enough or even destroyed (their "bodies" feature the same defenses as gargoyles), sessiliths are usually placed in such a way as to hinder all trespassers and interlopers, narrow corridors, claustrophobic tunnels and other related "gauntlets", where they cannot be easily avoided. Like gargoyles, sessiliths come in all sorts of grotesque shapes and sizes, though they tend to resemble tiny horned devils, demonic amphibians, or simply distorted faces and heads, more often than not.
