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?

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.
