The Ring of Hurtling

By:

The perfect ring for those who seek to make the most dramatic of entrances.

Full Description:

This bronze ring is heavily built,green from time and inscribed by ancient runes.

The ring will loosely fit any finger,sprite to titan.

Magical Properties

It protects the bearer from injury when the bearer is used as a projectile. No matter how hard they are thrown, they are fully protected until they come to a stop. Whatever is struck is not protected. The ring must be worn for the duration of the flight. The loose fitting ring could slip off, removing its protection, though holding it with two hands will minimize this chance. No measure is foolproof.

MORE LIKE THE RING OF THE EPIC BADASS! I can think of like, 28374 uses for this thing. So can everyone, I'm sure.

The bit about it being loose is sort of awkward though. If it's meant to balance the potentially game-breaking power of the ring, my players would just tie it to their fingers or something. If I used this, I'd make it an activation power, so the PC wouldn't be immune to all traps forever. Or a pair of rings. NO! A giant helmet that looks like a loaf of bread with rocketman fins on the top or a giant eagle face or something.

Damn, that's cool!

P.S. I feel like this is the perfect use of the 100-word submission concept. Just a great little idea, stripped down and presented in its most usable form.

I would be very picky on the term projectile, so simply falling/ jumping would not count. You have to be fired or thrown.
Depends on how rules-lawery you want to go.
As for securing the ring, sure, but don't forget :)

Winged helm would quite well with it. :)

Rather than secure it on a finger, perhaps you could slip it on a toe and forget about it; let the boot hold it in place. Also, just under some gloves. It would be useful facing off against large creatures (such as giants etc) who may use you as a projectile against your will.

Nifty thing, val; you've been very prolific of late!
I like these 100 word subs.

I need one of these rings. They'd be very useful in siege situations- you'd be able to get soldiers inside the castle easily, since they'd survive (probably) the catapult ride.

What wold happen, though, if some dramatic-entrance-ruiner took out his spear or sword or something and tried to stab the bada** as he came down? Would bracing the spear against the floor work, or would the spear guy have to stab the approaching person? I'd assume that the bracing wouldn't work, though. And stabbing would be hard to do with also avoiding the projectile.

This is 100 words!!!!!

My intent was basically up to and including the impact, the wearer would be uninjured, even if he hit the tip of a spear or the like. Once they stopped moving, subsequent damage from the locale- acid, fire, dragon chewing, would then apply.

The beauty of this is that the bearer cannot exactly control where he/she is going to land. If they are abusing it's power, perhaps its time for the dice to put them a few squares over . . . into the middle of a group of (now incredibly pissed-off) enemies.

Brilliant! That rarity...super-short, but GREAT! The comments are good too, every one made me nod as i read it. Makes you immediately think of uses/abuses for this beautiful item. Forganthus sums it all up nicely with....Ring of Epic Badass!!

I have to ask, since no one has...what pray tell is the origin tale of this thing?!

Moonlight shines down on the tranquil scene of a slumbering inn along one of the many roads that cross the land. Trees sway gently in the night air, and the stars twinkle brightly. All is quiet as the PCs snore away, a fine tendril of smoke curlsrnunder their door. The tavern is on fire! This is particularly bad news if the PCs own any horses - the screaming they hear is probably from their mounts! Panicky people are rushing about with buckets of water, trying to tame the flames. The fire fighting effort is not very coordinated as everybody is either hungover or still drunk, including the PCs. Hurry!
