The staff of internal pain


An item that puts a horible curse on the victims of its spell.

It was said that the dark wizard Vandole was devoid of all pleasurable emotions, and that he was a soulless corpse that possed great power. All he did was pace around his library, invinting new spells, and gaining new knowledge. He hardly ever left his mansion, but sometimes he would stare out the window, at all the joy and love that he could not experience.
Over time, he became rather annoyed at the fact that he could never have what everybody else had. He began experimenting on a way to "remove" all pleasurable emotions from everyone else, so that they too could share his suffering.
He succeded after three years of research. He had finally imbued the power to destroy peoples souls onto a staff off blueish wood, about 5 feet long. He set out to turn the people of his village. Upon his rampage, he came across a woman about his age.
For the first time in his life, he experienced love. However it was too late, for the staff had already worked its magic upon her, and she could never love him back.
Realising the mistake he had made, he immeadiatly started to find a cure. A holy man came and told him that the only way to release the spell, was if the will of seven people, who once knew the victim, mourned into a goblet of light, and the victim saw his/her reflextion in the goblet.
Since he had removed sorrow from the people of his towns souls, he could find no such people to mourn for her.
He could not cure her, but he could prevent such tragedies from happening to another. He could not distroy the staff due to its magical proberties, but he could hide it from exitence. He journeyed into a deep cave, where he buried the staff, in the place that it resides to even today.

Magical Properties:

The staff is able to place a curse on a target creature/player that causes the being to lose all motivation, and become a "lifeless corpse". (for not literally for those who cant understand quotations) This could be a good senario if the curse is placed upon a character and the other players need to find a way to cure him/her. and since a average party in most games consists of four people, they would need to travel to find people who knew the victim.

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 their victims from the inside out, via cell death, melting and destroying the organs in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, of 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.
