Johnny's Sling

By:

This could have made Johnny Appleseed's job that much easier!

This enchanted sling allows for seeds flung by it to grow both immensely faster and larger than normal. For already magical seeds, for example a Magic Bean, the seed acts as if carefully planted at the point they land. It is still necessary for the landing point to have _some_ planting medium. It would be possible to ‘plant’ magic beans into a earth elemental, for example.

Sometimes the sling can be found with magical seeds - such as these, these or these.

Well why not....use of this sling kind of reminds of the climatic "battle" between the main character and her mother in the book "Among Other". You know when she is tearing pages of out of Lord fo the Rings and hurling them at her mom. The pages then shoot up into powerful tree...does the sling kind of work like that?

My thoughts are that the sling needs magical/fantastic seeds to really shine, but if you mean seeds instead of pages of a book, then yes.

I still like the thought of hitting an earth elemental and turning it into a chia pet :P

I would make a druid type and use this sling as a surprise weapon or terrain altering tool. Bramble and nettle seeds could be fired out of it to make obstructing hedges. Stinging, stabby, thorny, and viney plants would be fantastic for this. Also useful for making a quick escape by throwing tangling plant seeds behind you, tripping up pursuants.

animated topiary seeds?

A single magic acorn that if used in the sling grow/summons an ent/treant that fights for the sling bearer.

Poison ivy

Carnivorous plants

Instant biomass to climb a tower, a wall, to obstruct a river, etc

Instant raw feast, slinging seed pods for a plant that can be eaten raw, or easily cooked.

I like this. It's cute yet utilitarian. Axle's comment made me laugh. I've never heard of "Among Other" but now I'm thinking of a meta-sling that quickly "plots" "idea seeds" growing them into full fledged ideas. I want one. Lol.

Corpse Herders

       By: Murometz

The Jiangsi was the name of an undead being in Chinese folklore and mythology. Usually translated as zombie or vampire for Western palates, the Jiangsi was really neither. They appeared as simply risen, fresh corpses. They moved (peculiarly!) by hopping rather than walking, and sought out the living to suck the Qilife force from their victims.

Perhaps significantly more interesting than the Jiangsi itself, was the lore surrounding them. "Zombie wranglers", or "Corpse Herders", usually Daoist priests, were men tasked with delivering these undead beings back to their respective home towns. Tradition in China placed great importance and emphasis on the return of the dead to their homes and families, and thus the corpse herders came to be. By using magick words and talismans they would animate the dead, and by placing specially inscribed parchments of paper over the Jiangsi heads and faces, the corpse herders would be able to control the hopping corpses. Then like pied pipers, they would lead processions of subdued undead, across many miles, rhythmically chanting and ringing tiny bells.

Special inns were built across China to house these undead caravans, as the zombies could only travel by evening and night, the sun anathema to them. Rows of doors opening to barely a closet-space, lined the walls of these special establishments. Behind these doors, the corpses would be stored upright while the corpse herders rested in rooms.

The Jiangsi under the control of a corpse herder were quite harmless, merely hopping after him, silently and without complaint, for weeks and months. If however, the magicked parchment would somehow be removed from their faces, the creatures would immediately seek living humans to kill. Their thirst for Qi was unquenchable.

The job of a corpse herder was an interesting one to say the least.
