The Glaive of Calmness

The Glaive of Calmness is a surprisingly small (yet oh so sharp !) device that easily fits between your thumb and index finger. When spun, the blades radiate a calming vibration to all around the user. Those that are more dexterous can extend the calming affect further around by spinning it faster.

The razor sharp blades are extremely likely to draw some measure of blood biting even through the strongest leathers. Blood in fact seems to fuel the glaive to spin ever faster. Of course, those that are less dexterous run the risk of forever losing a finger or something far worse if mishandled.

When it is spun extremely fast, it will appear to say in an ancient language:
Without Blood There Can Be No Peace.

Legend has it that the glaive was used by a (insane?) sorceror who wanted to study trolls in their native habitat. Some stories say he succeeded, extending our knowledge of these poor misunderstood creatures. Some say he diced himself into nice cubelets for their evening stew.

The Fabric of utter and bizarre randomness

The Fabric of utter and bizarre randomness is a regular sized (let's say queen for brevity) cloth sheet that when draped over an item, transforms that item into something completely different and random.

So for instance, say one drapes the fabric over their chair, that chair will transform into a mug of root-beer.

Not very useful in the long run but definitely a gag gift magical item.

The Guardian Sofa

This lavish piece of furniture adorns the dwelling of a magician from the distant past, unless it is the far future. It looks like a regular bean bag chair, and acts as such. Yet on a word from its master, it will firmly seize the person sitting in it, preventing any move with the soft strength of its cushiony grip.

Then, on another word, it will start bouncing and either take its prey to the dungeons, or outside to be mercilessly bounced away.

Next Magical Item: a ruler with carvings and holes of different sizes and shapes

The Geometers' Assistant

This ruler is finely crafted from an inflexible metal of unknown composition. There are a number of marks along one side spaced unevenly. Each mark has a carven symbol next to it. There are also a number of holes in the ruler in a variety of sizes and shapes: circles, ellipsoids, Reuleaux triangles, pentagons and dodecagons.

If this ancient script is translated, the symbols next to the marks are in fact numbers: 0, 5, 28, 38, 41, 49, 50, 68, 75, 92, 107, 121, 123, 127. The other symbols proclaim The Geometers' Assistant.

After sufficient study, those with appropriate training will realise that this is a Golomb Ruler and that any two integer distances can be measured accurately. Non-integer distances cannot and even trying to guess a non-integer distance proves very difficult. The unit of measurement used is the frimatum which hasn't been used for eons and corresponds to no existing unit.

If the ruler is placed flat onto a surface and one of the shapes traced with a drawing implement and then crudely scribbled until filled in, the surface glows briefly and becomes etched with the shape. This cuts a neat hole through a piece of parchment or thin metal. Because the ruler has to be flat on the surface, etching a second shape inside the first is virtually impossible. The shapes are all dimensioned in integer frimatum units.


Up next: a cracked teapot.

Kotake’s Teapot

Kotake’s Teapot heats up any liquid placed inside to an optimum steeping and drinking temperature (between 65-80 degrees Celsius for tea, between 91-95 degrees Celsius for coffee). The unique quality of this teapot is that its heating temperature is not fixed. It will always heat any item to the optimum temperature of whatever is placed inside its infuser. It does not affect unsafe/non-potable liquids. Unfortunately, this pot is cracked and malfunction. Instead, it now heats any liquid to boiling temperature. So water will reach 100 degrees Celsius, while linseed oil will reach 287 degrees Celsius, and alcohol boils at 78 degrees Celsius.

The Brainscrew

This precision tool (far too weak to actually fix a screw) enables its user to detect any flaw in another person's brain, like a shortcircuit flickering within their head. That does not tell him what the problem is, only that there is one.

If he then dares to plunge the screwdriver into this person's head, he will find that this is painless and that their brain can be repaired with a few gestures. In the eye of the surgeon, the brain now pulsates calmly. Other issues may remain, though, requiring more uses of the Brainscrew.

The tool's appreciation of a defect is very wide. Small quirks, phobias, cultural traits, and old habits may be erased alike. Worse, repeat patients will see their behavior turn more and more robot-like while their gaze turns hard and cold. Also, if the patient moves too much, actual brain damage may occur.

The Cylinder of Inferno

You wander alone in the dark. Desperation sets in.... you must deal with this precious white jewel you now hold in your hand soon, or all will be lost. But its useless in its present form. It must be properly activated before it may be combined with the sheath of honey-gold and the bar of delight.

But there is no flame to prepare this white talisman. Luckily you have your trusty cylinder of inferno! You light it up, toast the white jewel to a golden brown, place it between the honey-laden sheath along with that milky, savoury bar of delight, and take a bite! Delicious.

Next item: pencil sharpener.

Pencils of Sharpness

This small plastic pencil sharpener converts mundane pencils into weapons of fear and destruction. A pencil sharpened thus turns into a multipurpose weapon of considerable effectiveness:
Pencil Length
≥ 10cm
7 - 10cm
4 - 7cm
< 4cm
Melee Weapon
zweihänder (two handed sword)
long sword
short sword
dagger
Projectile Weapon
heavy crossbow
light crossbow
javelin
dart


The weapon created can always be wielded comfortably single handed without any loss of effectiveness. As a melee weapon, the pencil will land d10 blows before needing resharpening. As a missile weapon, it is single use but can still be sharpened anew. Each sharpened pencil is considered both a melee and a missile weapon. Thus, a pencil could be used as a melee weapon for a few rounds and then thrown at the retreating enemy as a missile weapon. Pencils sharpened in this way are considered enchanted for purposes of hitting.


This sharpener proves the old adage that the: pencil is mightier than the sword.

The Amazing jade rodent figurine

When placed on the ground and 'fed' cheese, the Amazing jade rodent figurine will animate and find the nearest direct and accessible escape path to the surface world from whatever environment it is in. The route will if possible accomadate itself to the users size. Being stone it will be impervious to standard damage. It will then revert back to its stone form once it touches the surface world.

Much like the animal it patterns, it can contort itself and fit through nearly any gap. Haste must be made if one wishes to keep up as the animate will not wait.

If there is no viable escape path it will self destruct into jade shards and dust possibly injuring those nearby. But perhaps that may be the least of the parties concerns...

The creator appears to have been incompetent or mischievous as a fair number of these unpredictably Squeak Loudly when used..or sometimes get a bit sidetracked temporarily.

The Protective Back Scratcher

This innocuous-looking brush is very handy to scratch your back, but the soothing sensation lingers for hours instead of fading away.

For as long as the scratching is felt, the user's back gets the ability to sense approaching assassins. When anyone closes in with the intent of stabbing you, you will feel that the scratching gets stronger in that person's direction, even when you cannot see that person. The closer the dagger, the stronger the scratching.

Of course, this is a bit less handy if you consider that you can only locate your murderer by turning your back on him. But still, it's better than nothing.

A Wheel of Cheese

This wagon wheel is green, smelly, and rubbery. It doesn't get stuck anywhere due to its porousness. Thus, a wagon with four wheels of cheese is never hindered in movement, no matter what the weather or road material.

A secondary effect is its smell. A wheel of cheese smells bad. It smells so bad those not familiar with it either fall ill or escape the neighborhood. There are no random encounters with a wheel of cheese, unless the monster is specially drawn to the wheel itself.

Dipping a biscuit in the wheel produces an iron ration.

This scarlet scarf provides protection again the cold. The wearer of this scarf is immune to the environmental effects of cold weather. It also grants resistance to cold damage.

The Ancestors' Bear Necklace

Nobody knows how a necklace of bear claws made its way to this remote planet so many light-years away. Yet it was already with the first settlers and they made it a cornerstone of their culture when the great wars cut them from imports and brought them back to a simpler life.

The necklace is worn by the Advisor, who constantly tours the main continent to assist the many clans. It is believed that once in one of the planet's long years, each claw may grant one blessing upon his people. The tales speak of immunity to cold and insect bites, lower food requirements, strength in battles against the indigenous lifeforms, luck in exploring the underground, luck when fishing, and sure footing when migrating across treacherous ground.

Given the price of Terran antiquities, the Prime Directive Committee is wary that the Advisor may someday be robbed of his necklace. No native guard could stop space-age criminals.

Paintbrush of Concealment

This crude paintbrush has seen better days, the bristles are thinning and encrusted, the handle is worn. Despite this, the brush is a boon for the owner. Whatever the brush paints over becomes effectively concealed.

Remove script from a scroll? Cover a crack in the wall? Hide a hole in the road? Run the brush over it, no paint or ink required. Whatever is thus painted becomes blurred and stealthily hidden. The effect is illusionary and visual. The hole in the road will still be felt, a water drip still sounds, etc.


Next item: a piece of half eaten jerky.

Jerky of the Hunted

This remnant of a stick of jerky is best used when planted on an enemy; speak or whisper the command word and an appropriate (for the closest area) cunning carnivore of sufficient size appears 60 feet away from the victim. Even if the jerky is discarded after the summons the carnivore will still target the victim, to kill and devour, leaving no trace. The creature will then disappear.

If the victim still had the jerky on them, it will be devoured as well. The carnivore is a normal creature for all other purposes and can be killed normally.

Next item: A Chainmail Gauntlet.

The Iron Fist

This chainmail gauntlet is designed for a six fingered hand and is incredibly uncomfortable for everyone else. When worn, the user gains the powers of command and punishment. They can command a creature if they accept a punishment metered out by said creature. Conversely, they can submit to a command from any creature in return for bestowing a punishment in return.

The commands can be literally anything, the punishments can never be beneficial and the gauntlet will attempt to balance the two.


Next up: a tennis ball sized peanut.

Planterrs Peanuts

Sometimes a starting enterprising young mage simply doesn't have the 30 coppers to pay off each of their henchlings who has delivered their quota of cadavers and rare animal parts.

When given as payment, the recipient will be fully convinced that the Planterrs Peanut they now hold in their hands is actually the full sum due(or gem). In effect, they have been paid peanuts and don't even realize it.

The length of time this deception will last can be quite long except for one small caveat. It only works once. When the recipient heads to the bar and tries to spend the 30 coppers on some tankards for them and some very best buds ..they will quickly realize after being kicked out that they've been duped. For that reason, most bankrupt young mages will have a good supply of these peanuts to last them until their current research is over. Also it helps if their hirelings are especially dimwitted.

Sometimes people bury them unwittingly believing them still to be rare coveted gemstones. Although they have grown rather nice gardens sometimes, they of course will not find that gem when the day comes.
(edit: stupid typos)

The Crystal Comb

This weightless, diaphanous comb is not really made of crystal, but it sure does look the part.

When used on someone's hair or fur, the comb fixates every thread into the shape wished for. This form is hard as stone, tough as a bulletproof vest, and (if shaped into a blade) cutting as a knife, yet it does not hamper the wearer's moves.

The effects vanish after a full night's rest or if the hair is soaked, either by rain or by a shower.

Next : a mountain bike

I did. Thanks for the clarification while I was away for the holidays. I have always had a weakness for that strange little movie weapon.

Good luck with Mountain Bike.

Mountain Bike

This devastating creation of an insane wizard eons ago is a bane to any town or village it approaches. Any animal this mountain sized bike of wasps encounters is attacked without fear or retreat until it stops moving. Eggs are then laid in the body which hatch with a magic rapidity. They proceed to consume the animal's flesh as they burrow their way out and emerge fully developed so they can join the swarm.

The bike is vast beyond comprehension, no matter how many wasps are killed, more will replace them. The only escape is to get where the wasps cannot: a sealed room or underwater.


Next: a pot of treacle.
