The premise is a moving floor powered by water - the floor is the top of a large, rough roller powered by water (it could be magic if desired, but I think it can be done with medieval technology.). The floor is not flat but curved (the larger the roller, the less obvious the curve) Go to Comment
(Psst: A large part of the properties is posted twice! You may really want to edit that, possibly also a few other things.)
A simple, interesting, and useful item I must say. It is potent, but has risks a careless user may easily bring upon himself. I like that it is one of its kind - uniques are all the more sought and valued.
You have given serious thought to the effects and uses of it, and it shows. Cookie for the artistic use - and the plot hooks that came of it. Great work. Go to Comment
Weapons or equipment that is heavily relied on can be "named". Then the equipment begins to gain abilities beyond those of normal equipment. They might siphon off some of the experiances of their owners (1 to 5%) and level up on thier own. Could be an unintenitional way of creating artifacts. Ships could become sturdier or seem to just barely outrun the worse of a storm that would have surely sunk another vessle, swords could fumble less or resist dulling more, a farmers plow could turn stones aside easier. Anything that is depended on as much as an inividual can depend on as much as another individual could be "named".
