The Sketch Pad of Magic Bunnies

By:

A sketch pad for casting powerful magic, if you can use it.  How many uses for bunnies can you think of?

Full Item Description
A three inch thick notebook is what it looks like at first glance, it is not until you get closer really look at the cover that you find anything unusual about it.  The quill pen on the cover is remarkably well drawn the edges of the fine soft looking feather seem to shift slightly whenever there is a slight breeze.  In fact you could swear you could pick it up, in fact you can but if you drop it the quill returns to the cover and tipping the book will not slide it off.   Upon opening you find beautiful pages obviously meant for an artist right down to the quick scale reference of a blank, a rabbit, a dog, a man, a horse, a tree, a dragon, and strangely a dot. 

History
Some time ago a wizard was hurt terribly in a battle that raged across the lands for ten years.  This wizard who had received the wound destroying the cause of the battle, or war if you like. Lost his voice and thus his ability to cast the spells that had allowed him to fight in the first place.  One of his friends an arch-wizard of breathtaking power and possessing of a warped sense of humor went out to gather materials to make an object that would help his friend, who worked after the war as an artist.  The arch-wizard searched for ten years before he had everything he needed.  So he then began his spell casting the power he called into the already charged items light up the night sky for many nights until finally this item was finished.  The arch-wizard surveyed his work grandly slightly disappointed that the outside did not match the power of the item he simply smiled when he beheld the pages inside.  The arch-wizard then did grandly give his friend the former wizard the book saying that whatever he drew would be called forth as if he had cast the spell.  The wizard who had given up his spells for a brush nodded his thanks and went back to work later that night the man tested the book trying to draw an unlit candle being lit but almost as if his hand were possessed he drew a bunny standing on a candlestick and then another with a small tongue of fire issuing from its mouth when he looked up the candle was lit.  He simply shook his head thinking about his friends humor and after discovering what the symbols on the side did left the book alone.

Magic/Cursed Properties
This sketch book brings to life anything that you draw into it with its quill, as long as what you draw is a bunny.  That being said how you draw the bunny is quite up to you and what you want that spell to accomplish:  A bunny with ear fuses for a fireball, a bunny that breaths fire, a bunny with horns and a dragons tail, bunnies with wings, translucent pink bunnies that hop around drunken people with no regard for gravity, a bunny to eat the world.

This magical property can only be drawn out to its fullest by a wizard who is an excellent artist, as the spells cast this way draw their power from the artistic ability of the wizard instead of his knowledge or wisdom.   Another important factor of using this item effectively is the wizard must be very creative.

Reminds me of an odd book I saw at a little bookshop once- 'The Big Book of Bunny Suicides'. Very funny, you might like it.

This is a novel idea, but it would be a very hard sell for a serious gaming group.

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
