The Vanishing Diner

By:

While enjoying a meal in the local tavern, the party strikes up a conversation with another customer, who is witty and urbane.

Several times during the meal, the customer takes action that ensures that others know of his presence (he asks someone to pass the salt, etc.).

The party agree to meet with the customer the next day in the same tavern, at which point the customer promises to relate some information that would interest them.

The next day, however, the customer never shows. When the party inquires about him, they are told by everyone that the customer didn't exist; that the party never interacted with anyone but themselves.

One of the party members finds something that conspicuously belonged to the customer.

Sounds like the intro to a Supernatural adventure, could use a bit more fleshing out however. :)

True. As it stands it is pretty simple and bare-bones, but enough to add a little fun/mystification to the campaign; supernatural or otherwise :)

Same as Val. A very versatile utility sub but would be interested in author vision as well.

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.
