Beautiful Hair Ribbons

By:

These simple ribbons caused the near destruction of an entire town. And, the ribbons did nothing wrong.

They are beautiful bits of ribbons of the proper width and length for women to add to their hair.  This ribbons are quite nice.  If she uses them, her hair seems nicer. It is softer, shinier, has more bounce and curl (or is straighter depending on her needs). It will add a simple plus to appearance initially, but the bonus will grow. After a short while, they add a good plus (+3 for a 3d6 range) to the charisma/ appearance of the female who uses them. (Her hair will stay softer, shinier, etc for quite a while even if she does not wear the ribbons with some of the pluses). They will also add to her self confidence and poise.

Unfortunately, the ribbons will start to engender jelousy among the other women who see her. Most of it will be of the catty backstabbing nature. However, someone always “goes to far”: working to actively break up a relationship, manipulating events, lying, and even commiting murder (sometimes the woman, sometimes her love).

History
These are demon enhanced ribbons, probably from a demon posing as a trader or a boyfriend who then left her.

I like this item because it can, with enough ribbons, *infect* whole towns.

Oh yes. These could really destroy a small town or a tight group.

Another demon item spread throughout the world to spread discord. Fairly standard fantasy idea, but not one that has become cliche.

What if a somewhat flexable male bard uses them?

The results would be appropriately tragic.

An old favorite came up on random again. This combined with Dalme The Tinker makes for a great early career adventure, or something that PCs can't just smash their way through.

A simple but useful idea. A poisoned pill that can be brought in by evil spellcasters/fae, etc.

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.
