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?

The air had grown chill the minute they descended into the strange valley, which was unmarked on any of their maps. It was so strange here, devoid of animal life and completely silent. The horses were nervous the entire journey through the vale. As they set about to collect firewood for the campfire they could hear their own voices as dim echoes through the eerie silence.

The food didn't taste anything that evening and their sleep was cold and troubled by nightmares. While they are clearing camp the next morning, one of them stumbles over a piece of stone jutting out of the ground nearby the horses. On closer inspection there seems to be runes engraved into the polished surface. The symbols true meaning is no more known among mere mortals and if they decide to dig deeper, they will discover that it is an ancient altar buried within the soil.

Any historically oriented party member will recognize the largest symbol to be the insignia of the powerful warlock who ruled this realm several centuries ago. At their departure from the area, something will seem amiss with one of the party members and all will remember the stories of the warlock's thousand curses.
