Wing Brew


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?

Thanks for you feedback. You can use this however you want, I was just trying to throw an idead out there for fellow Gms to use. I see now that i should have put alittle more thought into it... Ill be more careful in the future. Thanks.

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.

This is good. It is silly, but it is good.

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 creation of intelligent magical weapons is not an exact science and there are occasional failures, as such think of causing a little more stress to your players by "rewarding" them with an insane magical weapon

Agrophobic, refuses to come out of the scabbard without a strength check to draw it.

Haemaphobic: afraid of blood, fight at a penalty against any blooded creatures but really good against undead, elementals etc

Schizophrenic, not just one mind in your sword, lets have half a dozen minds in there, all different and bound to cause confusion

the possibilities are endless
