Vaivin's Stinking Ring

By:

"You shall never catch anything but a whiff of me!" Vaivin yelled, as he ran down the dark tunnel being chased by giant rats. All of a sudden he was gone and all that remained was a cloud of gas.

Full Item Description
A simple greenish-gold band that smells slightly of sewage. It will only function for members of the deep dwelling and stinkier races. It has the power to turn the wearer invisible as well as create a stinking green cloud.

History
Vaivin the Smelly was one of the "Deep Dwarves," though hardly a dwarf at all. He was short, he had that going for him. But he was also deathly pale and stank to the celestial realms. Also unlike most Dwarves he was a magic-user and often needed to make quick escapes from the more dangerous dwellers in the dark. So, out of necessity, the mother of invention, he created this ring. Into this ring he poured his cowardice, his unique smell, and his favorite spells.

To this day the Stinky Ring can be found with Vaivin at all times. Perhaps have him try to capture the PCs for food, if they defeat him they can have this ring and a bag of rotting meat

Magic/Cursed Properties
+ can activate a Limited Invisibility spell 3 times a day.
+ can activate a Cloud of Smelly Green Gas 1 time a day.

- the wearer of the ring will start to stink and become more cowardly after wearing this ring for at least 1 day (24 hours).

A good idea but not very well done.

A precious with that not quite fresh feeling.

Could use some work, but it strikes me as a perfect item to give low-power humanoid spellcasters.

Proof that a good backstory can not save an item. It hits all the basics, but loses a bit for the DnD feel for the powers (and part of the write up).

In nature, for instance, a rhino has flies and ticks etc, that live on the hide and live off the blood. Rhino will visit and lie in ponds where turtles will clean the underwater portion of the ticks and a species of bird will clean the the top of ticks and other parasites. What if where the characters camp there were a species of animals that lived off wounds of the creatures. PCs camp. Anybody with wounds on there body are soon covered with small rodent - insect - shadows - whatever. Would immediately see it as a threat I would imagine. But perhaps one of the wounded didn't wake up when it happened, and when they did finally wake they were completely healed. Perhaps somebody was warned of something attacking them but they were able to notice that the wound was actually getting smaller instead of larger. Or maybe they successfully beat the creatures off them and don't notice an improvement, marking this place never to rest at ever again....later learn that villagers send their wounded there but they keep it a guarded secret because they don't want all the attention or traffic and what comes with such a special gift. Could turn into something more too if characters decide to start blabbing about it.
