The Stolen Items

By:

“Hey! That’s Mine!” “Well, you can not prove that. However, we are selling it today.”

Full Item Description
The description of the items is quite simple. They are things that were once in the players’ possession. The items were stolen a while back.

History
The characters were on an “adventure”. Their property was stolen, presumably by Evil Minion. When they defeated the plans of the Evil Mastermind, they expected to find their stuff, but they didn’t.

Yet here it is, quite a while later, in an estate sale of a recently deceased important peson. How did it come into the possession of the King’s Cousin (or other important person), when the items were supposedly stolen by an Evil Minion? 

Magic/Cursed Properties
Any.

Inspired by Strolen’s One Line Entry in the original thread.

Giggle, this would tick off my players so bad. One of them would get arrested for killing the poor auctioneer.

4/5 It makes me laugh at my players misfortune.

I dub this mini-scenario, "Proof of Provenance"

PC to Estate manager: "Hey, that's my dagger!"

Orc standing behind PC: "Only after you stole it from my dead brother!"

Cold Comfort

       By: Murometz

Cold Comfort is a long-sword of star-steel, its blade giving off a wan, blueish light. Its grip is wrapped tightly in snow-serpent hide, and its pommel bears a single opalescent gemstone.

This blade is enchanted in such a way, that whoever wields it, begins to fall completely and irrevocably "in love" with the weapon. This love does not manifest itself as the expected reverence and bond formed between any warrior and his weapon, but as a deeper, truer love, one has for a soul-mate of the same species! The longer the wielder carries Cold Comfort the stronger and more disturbing this love becomes, and only the most powerful of magicks can potentially break the sword's insidious spell. The blade's owner will even speak to and coo to the weapon, convinced that the sword understands and returns this epic love.

If the blade's wielder somehow loses the weapon or has it taken away, they will become inconsolable, and will predictably go to "ends of the earth and back" to retrieve it at any cost. Such is the weapon's curse that even separation from it does not damper the feelings the owner has for the sword. Legends tell of several distraught and mind-addled knights who even years after losing the blade, still wander the country-side searching for their lost love. And woe be to the "new lover" if and when they find him or her.
