The Peristeronic Ring


A fine brass ring adorned with the figures of pigeons and doves.

This ring can summon any species of dove or pigeon or dove at the rate of one per minute, up to twenty per day. They can carry out simple orders or deliver a message to a specific place or person within 100 miles. If spooked or injured, they flee. The pigeons serve until they die or dismissed.

The user can summon an entire flock of pigeons which can obscure the wearer or carry out one order. This disables the ring for a month.

Finally, the wearer can transform into a dove or pigeon, once, for as long as they choose.

And, if you like the taste of Pigeon or Dove, well, you'll never go hungry :)

Other uses...

1. Ever wanted to pass for a statue? Stand perfectly still and have some pigeons roost on you. Don't flinch if they poop on you.

2. Since it could be *any* species of pigeon, how about giant pigeons? Like the ones from Korgoth of Barbaria :P

I like these unconventional magic items. Using them requires more creativity than say a wand of magic missile.

But you too Valadaar, double dipping in 100-word and Oekaki...

The simplicity of this is astounding. It's a quite powerful item, so I would tend to include a downside or two. Say, the pigeons keep returning to the summoner (maybe even if dismissed), so their cooing and pooping quickly becomes an issue.

Thank you very much valadaar for this inspiration. Just adapted your idea as a relic to one of the female saints in my world. It did fit perfectly!

why use the word 'Dove' twice in the same counting?

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 the victim from the inside out, via cell death, dissolving organs and flesh in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, from 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.
