Wing Brew

By:

In certain parts of the world, DON’T ask for something in a language the barkeep dosen’t understand or say “just give me anything”

A simple alcoholic beverage that makes the drinker grow large white angelic wings that can’t do anything and last for 1d4 Whatever unit of time you think it should be(it was originally years). Not really cursed or useful at all but I enjoy the looks on peoples faces when they find out the wings don’t work. Its rather amusing so use it if you like just dont overdo it or the pcs will be suspicious about everything you give them and other cursed items may be discoved before you have your fun.

So why would anyone make this semi-magical brew?

Do you have a mad alchemist who thinks he is a brewer in the area?

How long is the life expectancy of some wise ass Barkeep who serves this stuff to someone who does not want non-functional angelic wings? Unless I was really lawful good, this man would be in a difficult way soon after.

Ditto for said mad alchemist (soon after I find them)...

How expensive/ inexpensive is this stuff? If it is expensive, wouldn't you ask for your money upfront... as the outraged patron probably is not going to pay. So you, the barkeep, would be out all that money.

I must agree, it could become dangerous to the barkeep.

But if the duration would be say 1d4 days, this could make an interesting practical joke (and not an over-powered one, as this one must be).

If the whole village/town knows about this (very likely), the villagers will certainly have their fun. And all those sarcastic comments.


But wait...
Imagine the players steel from that alchemist, or his friend. Besides gold and stuff they find some old excellent wine...

Can you say "unusual personal marks"?

Personaly as well I was thinking about a duration of 1dx + y hours where X could be about 8 and y about 2...
Days would be good as well.

If this is for 1d4 years, I would also say.... The bartender is in serious trouble.

I think the days would be a highly appropriate duration if this brew was part of a local celebration, giving the drinkers instant costumes for thier parts. Locals seeing the characters with wings might draw interesting conclusions.

"Oh, so you're the fertility angel now? My son in law needs some guidance, you understand. Here's the honey-butter, go and get to work."

What happens when the wings wear off? They just go "poof", or do they shed and disintegrate?

I happen to have a church that consist almost entirely of paladins. Their god is a Couatl, and they would no doubt love to spread some angelic wings while they do the same with their "Divine judgement."

The barkeep would need to have burly bouncers to protect him from whoever he served this to.

With the right explanation for why someone went to all the trouble to make this, it could be a lot of fun....

"Yeah, there was a whole chest of these vials, just sitting in the vestibule of the Church of the Eagle God, so the boys grabbed a few. I wonder what they do?"

Cute, silly, and odd, but quite usable.

The Door

A nifty little encounter appropriate for any powerful sorcerer/magically adept monsters lair.

When the party have penetrated to an appropriatly impressive level/room they encounter The Door, this door is a vessel through which the Sorcerer/Monster can safely work against any intruders, the door is heavy duty iron bound studded oak wrought with craft skill and magic, set in the middle is a crystal orb, once the party get within a preset distance the orb flickers briefly as the door warns its "master" of the intruders, the master can then effectivly possess the door itself, this means that all movement the door is capable of (i.e. opening and closing) come under the control of the master, the master can also cast spells from the door as if he were there himself, all the while any damage that is inflicted in return merely damages the door, this will in effect ruin any of the parties chances of surprise, allow the master to assess the parties abilities while remaining safe and sound and finally will probably cause the party to waste some of their juicier items/spells on a chunk of wood and iron, and if the master happens to have a deadly spell or three it could also reduce the size of the party,

Of course if you wanted to be really nasty you could have the door open to admit one person and then slam shut on the second person (squish) whilst blasting away with every spell in the mastrs repetoir
