The Shard of Thaeron

By:

A broken shard of mystical powers.

Long ago, it was told that one great wizard tried to use the goddess of magic to wield her godhood. He created a crystal sphere of mystical powers that no one knew about. He tried to steal the goddess’s powers to ascertain godhood. And that is where his downfall occured. No one knows exactly what happened to him, although it is thought that he is in hiding, crazy and powerless. Only one piece of that crystal ball was found, this shard.

Magical Properties:

Anyone who touches this sphere sees their doom, and suddenly obtains a curse. This curse depends on the person and their personality and it is totally dependable only on the character himself.

I like the idea, and I like that you've given the item some history, but it doesn't GRAB me! It's a little too much like all those other cursed artefacts you might find: the One Ring for example. There needs to be something a little more to it, something which distinguishes it from the more mundane evil items. Maybe try to flesh out the story with more detail?

I'm sorry. It seems too hackneyed to me. Too cliche. A billion other items replicate this exact plot and item, and they're probably more detailed, too.

As the PCs travel the road, right after a bend they hear a sharp whistle and call: "Heeey, not so lazy, move your asses!" It is a large man that calls, and there are unwilling workers that listen. A small company, 10-15 men work on the road, push boulders aside, dig up roots from under the road, etc. The large man that shouted turns to you, smiles fast and mutters something under his breath, sounds like cursing some lazy worker. "Where does the road bring you from, travellers?" And does a little small-talk.

And what is really happening? A group of bandits is 'adapting' the road for shady purposes. The road will not be wider, but tighter, with enough cover around (and a few traps perhaps), and will become an ideal spot for ambushing travellers or entire caravans. The bandit leader wants them all to appear harmless. The 'lazy worker' he cursed was actually a guard that should give warning before any travellers come around (fallen asleep). Not surprisingly, the boss may decide for an ambush even now.
