Ravenfeather Cloak

By:

"I once saw a raven fly over the Druidic wilderness, the lands claimed only by tooth, claw, tree and vine. The Raven landed in a clearing where many beasts stood in a large circle, landing in an empty space of the circle. It was there that I saw the beast lords return to their true forms, human, elf, half-elf and more. Each wearing a mantle of the beast they had been. The man that was a Raven wearing a cloak of feathers black as night."

- -Dynath Solobren, Elvish explorer

Description

The Ravenfeather Cloak was created by druids in order to amplify the natural magic of taking on a beast's shape. Many such mantles and cloaks were made for the purpose of training and developing one's abilities.

The Druids commonly use such cloaks for messengers and sometimes in spying on their enemies.

Properties

The cloak allows the wearer to transform into a Raven, allowing them to fly and travel with great ease. The Cloak also grants the wearer the ability to understand and speak with birds, as interesting as it might seem, birds are simple creatures and they are unlikely to share anything useful.

The Ravenfeather Cloak allows more versatility in combat, though, giving one the ability to swiftly engage or disengage.

The wearer is smaller in Raven form, allowing them to fit through smaller spaces.

Drawbacks

In Raven form, you may be seen as prey by larger predatory birds. Or as a hunter's target.

The wearer will not have access to their equipment in Raven form, but may pick up objects and carry them in their talons.

Any armor worn will be negated except for magical auras.

Uses & Scenarios

Broken Wing - A Druid messenger is attacked while on their way to deliver an important message. The heroes see an arrow take down a Raven near their camp, should they investigate, they find a wounded man with an arrow in his shoulder wearing a black feather cloak.

Druidic Reverie - The Druids have gathered in the wildlands for a great festival, featuring many contests of might and cunning. A prize is offerred to the most successful team; A Ravenfeather Cloak.

A Gift - A group of heroes has helped to save a great forest. The Druids thank them with a gift.

Mesnoi

       By: Murometz

The food that eats you back.

Creatures of nightmare, the thankfully rare Mesnoi have unique form and attributes. Only one Mesnoi at a time will ever be "encountered".

In appearance, a Mesnoi resembles a walnut-sized chunk of freshly-roasted red meat from some uncertain yet familiar, edible animal. The insidious creature camouflages itself quite appropriately whenever it can, by slowly making its way amidst feast tables and trays of roasted meats.

Once eaten by the unsuspecting, the Mesnoi sinks down to the stomach, reforming if chewed, and begins to lap up the gastric fluids, digestive juices, and bile that it craves, like a sponge.

The Mesnoi carrier will experience mild to severe stomach pains during this time.

After a few hours of this (this is the only time that the Mesnoi can be purged with magic, or other mundane means), the Mesnoi transforms into its true form inside its victim, that of a miniature, once more walnut-sized, pot-bellied, devil-horned, snake-tailed imp. This horrid little creature then begins to chew and eat its way out of the victim from the inside out with its tiny, razor-sharp teeth, like a rat forced to do so via torture.

The victim almost always dies a slow, agonizing death. That much is certain. The devilish imp then exits its victim and begins its seventy two hour existence of mischief and malevolence, until it once more turns back into a hunk of roasted meat with the movement capabilities of a snail.
