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.

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.
