Blackstrap Miracle Treacle

One of the stickiest substances known to man, Blackstrap Miracle Treacle was originally enchanted to simply be used to make the most delicious puddings ever.
However, quite by accident, when the inventor tasted it for consistency, it was discovered that it can glue together two or more objects (in this case, the inventor's jaws) with incredible strength.

Miracle Treacle can be used for a variety of tasks. One careful splotch will hold a heavy boulder to a ceiling for example, until the magic word, typically Partskcalb, is said, dropping the boulder on the unsuspecting hopefully scrumptious traveller, to be looted and/or eaten by who knows what. Or it can glue a scrumptious yet uncooperative traveller onto a wall while you get the fire started. Or into a pot. But these are just some of the oh so many things you can use this product for.

Press Release: Johnny Kr'goth the Ogre is having a sale on Miracle Treacle this week only, 50% off! 1 Deep Dark Cave, Edge of Oldglade Forest, M2G 1P0.

Next Mundane Item: Pepper Shaker (to complete the set that started this off)

Peira's Perilous Pepper Pot

Tired of bland and dull adventuring rations, the mage Peira the Powerful worked a spell to create a magical artifact that would flavor any food, making even the driest of hardtack delicious. Unfortunately, the spell went slightly awry. The enchantment works on any spice or herb placed in the shaker and does indeed make any food it is sprinkled on smell and taste excellent. However, the properties carry over for a few hours or so to anyone eating a meal prepared with it. They will emit a smell that virtually any predator will find highly appetizing, and will draw nearby dangerous animals.

(Many adventurers found good uses for the Pepper Pot, and Peira made a tidy sum...after appeasing her conscience with offerings for her poor fellow adventuring halfling who just couldn't resist the taste of the spice. At least there were no burial expenses after the dragon caught his scent...)

The Flowery Handkerchief

This handkerchief is always swathed in a fine powder with a flowery scent, which matches the embroidered flowers on it.

When the handkerchief is waved in the air, the powder spreads and stays magically put in mid-air. After a few seconds, it turns invisible.

If the user comes back later and eyes the place through the light gaze, he will see which grains have been displaced and in what order. (Of course, this is not much use in a windy place.)

Another use is for spotting invisible items. The grains will outline these in a clear manner.

Next item: a pink odd-colored business suit

Xanadu Suit

This oddly colored suit (is it grey, is it green, it is just soiled?) is a finely crafted and well fitted suit that remains perfectly clean and odor free in any environment. Wine, sauce, mud, grease - nothing sticks to it, keeping the suit perfectly clean for wear every day, as long as the wearer does not mind wearing an oddly colored suit.

Next Item: Soap carving of a boat

Jessamine's Power Suit

When unworn the suit reverts to a particularly unflattering shade of pink, which turns most away from wishing to wear it. However, once donned, the suit changes to the favorite color of the wearer. When worn it imbues the wearer with a strong sense of confidence, eloquence though not the wisdom to prevent saying something horribly wrong, and the belief they are invulnerable. All of these vanish the instant the suit is removed, leaving the wearer feeling vaguely depressed and wondering where they went wrong.

Leaving this, go with the next item from above!

Shelby's Shipshape Soap

Every wizard is looking for that eureka moment, where they invent something that will live on long after their 500 years on the mortal plane are up.

Shelby's eureka moment was when he realized the poor hygiene habits of monsters.


How can a beholder wash its stalk pits? How does an umber hulk get that spot right behind the ears? Five years of research led him to..

Shelby's Shipshape Soap. When placed on a living body, it will sail over the creatures full body cleansing and exfoliating it as needed, leaving a pleasant lavender and sea salt smell. No water needed.

Although Shelby was eaten by one of his very first coldcall clients (it is said the monsters appreciated how clean he was and how they wish all adventurers took the same care), his invention has gained him some modicum of fame, so one must consider it a success.

Arezania's Memory Mirrory Tea Tray

If Shelby was very mindful of personal hygiene, Arezania was a necromancer with equal concern for proper manners. Therefore she looked for a civilized way to commune with the figures of the past.

Arezania's Memory Mirrory Tea Tray must be used to serve tea. Once all the cups, teapot, and accessories are off the tray, the silvery surface reveals its magical properties: for as long as the tea is being drunk, any one of the previous users of the tray and cups will appear within the tray's frame, and happily chat with the current owner. They can be served tea and scones through the surface of the tray.

It is unknown how the tray can reach back to someone's image and memories without changing the past (some sort of recording maybe?), nor how Arezania managed to use it in the first place (maybe by adding some unknown ingredients in the tea?).

The Moon Wrench

The Moon Wrench has a pale, unsilvery glow to it. As a tool, it is moderately good, because it is cold in the hand and not heavy enough.

Its true usefulness is completely different. If one turns the worm-screw while looking at an item through the jaws, this item will be progressively reduced proportionately in size and weight.

The wrench has its limits. The more one wants to reduce an item, the harder it gets to turn the screw. Also, objects rooted into the ground (such as a house, tree, or rock) cannot be reduced. Last, the bigger the item, the faster it will revert to its original dimensions.

The Wrench remains one of the few objects known to man which can affect the Moon. True, it cannot be pocketed - but still.

Every now and then, an object from a separate timeline falls through time and space. This is what happened to a set of crescent wrenches.
Shelby happened upon them one day looking for rare magical ingredients, and not divining their true purpose, tried to come up with a clever enchantment for them.

Shelby's lesser known invention, the Heavy Metal Magic Underwater Nose HoldBreather Apparatus was by far his least successful magical invention. Although it did allow people to breathe underwater when clamped to the person's nose, it hurt like heck as it had to be very tight, and often broke a nose or tooth or fang or two while worn.

The Cosmic Crocheted Cap is another (magic?) item that somehow fell through time and space. Its strange indestructible fibers (spun by sentient spiders of an unknown dimension) allow it to expand naturally to fit any living creature's head. It gives the user insight into workings of time and space for as long as worn no matter the creatures intelligence. However, the longer it is worn, the greater the chance the user has of turning insane. Someone already insane will become even more insane.

Fun Facts:
Liches, for example, in their vigorous pursuit of knowledge, have on occasion been reduced to thinking they are chickens. Especially dangerous chickens who will guard their non existent eggs against any threat..

Somewhere out there is a truly epically insane slime mold with all the answers to the universe. If only you knew how to communicate with it.

The Mysterious Case of the Compact Cosmetics

This case of cosmetics allows one to pass compacts with the Powers of the Cosmos. Each of the 16 items within (sticks, brushes, stamps; in different sizes and materials) comes in 16 shades which may be combined between themselves.

Every time three shades are combined on a single person, this person is mysteriously abducted and taken before one of 4096 divine beings from this universe. They may someday come back, with or without major changes.

If more than 3 shades are combined, one of them acts as a key to another universe and leads to 4096 other beings from that universe, and so on.

Nobody knows what the exact combinations are, or nobody talks about it.

Thousands of years ago, there was a power struggle amidst the dark planes of existence. All that we truly know is that This Evil prevailed over That Evil. From this power struggle, many cursed demonic items have made their way through to the mortal realm. One such item:

The Rugs of D'Rak.
They are sheared every dark planar year on the unholiest of dark equinoxes from the goatlike hide of an imprisoned/chained minor demon named D'Rakaraak (D'Rak - Demon of Intoxication) by its dark rival Y'klboh (Y'Klb - Demon of Horned Animal Rage). Y'klb has scattered the Rugs of D'Rak throughout existence in an effort to usurp D'Rak's power. No one knows how many exist as time runs differently in alternate existences.

The Rugs of D'Rak provide unending, comfortable drunken warmth to any creature(s) that lies down upon them, no matter the temperature or climate. They are like sleeping blankets plugged into the depths of hell. They are usually mottled black or brown, but planar travel may cause them to appear nearly any colour.

However, the danger lies in whether the Rug of D'Rak considers the creature 'worthy'. It will suddenly broadcast it's existence and whereabouts to the remaining followers of D'Rak. Then it will envelope the creature slowly and tightly, prohibiting most any attempt to escape without additional assistance.

Those judged 'unworthy' will typically just benefit from a nice toasty drunken night as the Rug awaits a truly worthy soul. Yet, being evil, it may just envelope and absorb its victim in an attempt to move onto a more worthy possessor. Evil sometimes just needs to do evil things for the street cred.

D'Rak will never regain its full power (and thus be able to rage horrible vengeance on his hated enemy!) until its demonic minions regain each of the Goat Hides, and sacrifice a worthy soul upon each of them.

The Fork of Unison

When this tuning fork is rung, all the persons within earshot are affected proportionately to their feelings toward the user.

Those who are hostile will suffer an uneasiness or a pain proportional to their aversion or hate.

Those with goodwill toward the user will feel at ease, elated, or even blissful.

Those that are deaf or harbour no feelings or no inclination, are unaffected.

Beware, though, for if the fork is rung again before the first note has faded away, the effect is immediately inversed.

Morgan’s Ball

Morgan’s ball is the enchanted bowling ball of famous pin bowler, Humphrey Morgan. Morgan’s father was a sailor as was his father before him, going back many generations. As a tribute to his family history of seamanship, Morgan had an old cannon ball preserved from him great, great, grandfather’s ship converted to the core of his professional bowling ball. This 16 lbs bowling ball was much contested in professional play.

Morgan’s Ball will always pick up the spare. However, all other properties of the ball are normal. Yes, it can miss the lone pin, but Morgan is not that bad a bowler.

Morgan’s Ball does have one other feature, an enchantment originating from the cannonball center. Any person holding Morgan’s Ball can descent to the deepest depth of the ocean without suffering the effects of pressure. Additionally, the person holding Morgan’s Ball can will the ball to return to the surface quickly, bring the holder with the ball and preventing any ill effects from water pressure.

It does not provide any source of oxygen, so the submerged bowler will either have to hold his breath or have another source for oxygen.

The Tome Of Scaly Revenge

In the time when the last Natives were being driven out of the Mississipi Valley, one of their wise men conceived great anger toward the white settlers who were taking the now empty land. As a parting gift, he mixed his kin's and the invaders' knowledge to craft this small book that is covered in alligator hide. The text within is in broken English and phonetic translation of the author's language, which nobody can understand anymore. It has no punctuation nor pictures. It is clear that the paper is second hand, as an English text's dents and creases remain.

As long as the book belongs to a Native American, this person is able to shapeshift into an alligator whenever he is in a swamp area. It does not matter if he has the book with him or not (although a shorter distance makes the effect last longer), or if he can read it at all.

If the book is in the hands of any other person, this person will suffer an itch that makes the skin scaly, uncontrollable fits of gluttony or loss of appetite, bouts of laziness followed by frenetic activity, an irresistible appeal to both sun, carrion and water, and will eventually wander into the swamps to fall prey to an alligator. The book always reappears not long after.

Aspirion's Virtual Reality Helmet of Risky Gambling and What it Does to Your Brain Device

Most Mages are Mad. (Maybe it's just the ones i hang out with.)

Aspirion not only was mad, but he also was Devout, and a fervent opposer to all things forbidden. And in his mind, forbidden = gambling. (He was much more lax on many other issues).

Aspirion created Aspirion's Virtual Reality Helmet of Risky Gambling and What it Does to Your Brain Device to teach young apprentices the dangers of gambling and foolish risks.

To wear it, you must strap two large icosahedron shapes over the eyes.
When worn properly, it shows the wearer a hidden virtual reality much like the one they are in. However, as they navigate the world, everything appears much more pixellated than normal, especially earlier versions of the device.

If the wearer attempts any action at all, they will see a ghostly outline of icosahedron(s) rolling a number. Their fate in the virtual reality realm is solely dependent on the die roll. For those that find that the icosahedron model uncomfortable to wear, Aspirion also invented a dodecagon and a pentagonal trapezohedron version.

For instance, if the wearer wants to jump over a gap.. Run in place and then you see a couple of dice roll in front of you, and, too bad, you rolled two ones....Dead! * In fact, many have complained that the virtual dice in the helmet appear to be weighted towards rolling ones.

Some enterprising wearers have taken the time to build elaborate tables based on the rolls provided.
Odds of surviving a y foot cliff fall for average height humanoid. x%
Odds of surviving a y foot cliff fall for above average height humanoid. x%
Odds of surviving drinking y cups of poisoned potion for someone of a vigorous constitution ..x%
Odds of next room in a dungeon having a slime mould on the ceiling..x%

Although most consider Aspirion's Virtual Real.. more of a novelty, some philosophers have theorized that Aspirion has tapped into some hidden universal probability matrix. Unfortunately, Aspirion disappeared after he defaulted on a huge loan (apparently betting on horses isn't gambling), so he won't be answering any questions soon.

* Each death results in a lengthy diatribe condemning gambling in all its forms by Aspirion. Experienced users find that pulling the goggles slightly off your face reboots the magical device, and thereby avoiding the annoying comdemnation.

Abstract Game

Description: The wooden board is square. It is a grid of 16 colored squares deeply stained into an alternating pattern. In addition to the square checked wooden board the game includes 42 stone tiles in four colors. The goal is to place tiles to make chains of colors in various directions. It can be played solo or by a pair. Among the 42 tiles is one of a different color.

History: 41 tiles in four colors are the ones used by most players. As the wooden board passes from owner to owner, in various ways, the most common play is to set aside the off color stone tile and play with the remaining 41. That is more than enough to make patterns in various directions. As the game passes from owner to owner the instructions vary, but players try to form pattern chains and manipulate.

Overlooked Tile: The key to unlocking the magic is using the off color stone tile. When used properly, at the center of the board, the game opens up portals and paths to other realms.

Universal DNA satchel

This professional-looking medical satchel, adorned with the seal of a nondescript hospital two snakes figuring a DNA helix, holds the files from five distinct DNA tests.

When the satchel is left in a single place (not moving more than ten meters) for twenty-four hours, it will begin to soak up the DNA profile of all persons within a two-kilometers radius. The process takes from 24hrs for a homogeneous sample, to one week for a diverse and moving sample.

After this, each of the five files will show one of the possible average DNA profiles for the whole sample. (If the sample was a single person, only this person's profile appears on all five sheets.)

Looking at one of the files closely for ten minutes enables the reader to take on the innate features of this profile, including body and face features, sex, height and special traits (lactose (in)tolerance, immunities, thresholds for pain/heat/cold/hunger/anoxia, genetic diseases and so on). On average, a trait needs to be in at least 20% of the sample to show up on a sheet, yet the numbers are only 5% for diseases. Unless you are a geneticist, you may only estimate what the result will be like.

The effects of a file last for twelve hours and one may use only one file every twenty-four hours.

The satchel resets after a full week without use.

There is a catch, however : if, during the absorption process, mammals in the area outnumber humans ten to one, the profiles will instead inflict erythropoietosis, a disease which makes you look a lot like a werewolf.

(The trough must have thrown everyone off. )

Gruzmeam’s Trough

Named for the famous Dwarven Baker (are there really any famous dwarven bakers?) Lommas Gruzmeam, this baker’s trough is an adventuring clan’s treasure.
Dwarven Bread is already notorious for its long shelf life. But dwarven Bread, any bread for that matter, made by kneading on Gruzmeam’s Trough will have double the normal shelf life. A side effect of kneading dough on this trough, depending on who you ask, is the caloric value of the baked bread is cut in half, which is fine for dieters and elves, but not for those who need energy to sustain them on long journeys.

The Tongue of A'(n)Rak

This bedroll is the tongue of an ancient anteater like demon named..well...it is incomprehensible. We mere mortals call it A'(n)Rak for short. We believe A'(n)Rak (legend says it is D'Rak's 3rd cousin twice removed) is another victim of the great Demon Wars mentioned above. Like the Rugs of D'Rak, its followers are attempting to reclaim all the Tongues to bring their master back to power.

And like the rugs of D'Rak, the bedroll unfurls and is nice and comfortably warm in the most coldest of weather, stretching to fit the user as if the finest parka. It is sticky though and will leave an icky residue that is hard to wash off.

When unfurled at an enemy, it wraps around the opponent and makes them completely immobile, and then springs them back very rapidly at the possessor who may get bowled over if they are not nimble. Size of enemy does not seem to be a factor and it does extra damage against what it perceives to be antlike and grublike creatures.

As evil as D'Rak is, A'(n)Rak is more of a prankster demon. Anyone who uses the Tongue of A'Rak as a weapon will be doomed to speak only in bad puns for a week. Anyone who uses it to sleep will unfortunately be cursed to speak in alliteration for a full week. If they cannot come up with a bad pun or speak in alliteration, then simply they will become tongue tied and speak nonsense.

It is possible that the Tongue of A'(n)Rak is addictive, i know of at least one case of a totally tongue tied twisted toddler telling tall tales...


Legend has it the great crusader Colan the Ceaseless Cleric of the Country of Cambon years ago used the Tongue of A'(n)Rak against a decidedly deathly dangerous dragon. Although it successfully wrapped rings right 'round the ruby red dragon, Colan was caught considerably chagrined when a 35 ton dropping dragon came raining down on him. Colan is still somewhat stuck somewhere between the back 3rd and 4th claw, so we will wait awhile to see who the valiant victor is.

(ack. it IS addictive!)

The Hidden Divisions

Last year, during Christmas, an unknown empire from another dimension tried to take over our world. Before the oh-so-unexpected defeat of their power-armoured goons at the hands of a squad of brace-toothed nerds and cheerleaders (plus one Labrador dog), they did manage to infiltrate their costly war machines by camouflaging them as cardboard boxes.

After sitting in warehouses for a few months, the boxes were labelled as abandoned and sold off to several nationwide delivery companies.

The boxes transform back into a warmachine when correctly disposed. When they are open face-up and you sit in them, they turn into jet planes. When they are face-down and you are looking through the handling grips, they turn into tanks. When you put several of them together, they form a fortress.

The boxes are small, probably because the invaders were short-sized. Therefore, only a bunch of children have found the secret so far.

The Safe Cracker’s Watch

This complex wrist watch has an exposed view of the intricate gear-works beneath the crystal. The watch indicates time in second, minutes, hours, days of the weeks, date, and months. An extra blue hand, similar to the second hand, remains at the 12 o’clock position. The leather wristband shows no wear though the watch appears to be quite old.

An engraving of a many-spoked wagonwheel on the back of the watch is actual an engraving of a circular vault mechanism and identifies it as one of the rarest watches in the world. When these watches are found by law enforcement agencies, they are often destroyed, while criminals and spies jealously guard these watches.

The Safe Cracker’s Watch can unlock any mechanism following a simple activation procedure. First, the wearer of the watch holds the device to be unlocked with the hand the watch is on. Depressing the crown completely activates the second blue timer. The timer attunes to the locked device and counts the time till was last unlocked. Second are hours, hours are days, and so on. Any interruption during the attuning resets the timer. This informs the wearer when the device was last unlocked. The owner then unseats the crown, and winds it in reverse to the time when the device last unlocked, which will cause the attuned device to unlock. If the hand bearing the wrist watch break contact at any time during the process, the attuning t must be restarted.

The Safe Cracker’s Watch is a quick and easy tool to unlock devices that were recently unlocked, but only the patient one can crack open a device that has been sealed for a long time.

Wail of the Banshee

The bone plectrum known as the Wail of the Banshee is often found near water - on the bank of a stream, by a puddle in a dungeon, by a goblet at a banquet. A savvy bard would drop the plectrum in the water - if the water turns blood red, it is the Wail of the Banshee.

When used on any stringed instrument, the tune becomes a haunting melody that steals away all agency of those hearing it except for the one holding the plectrum. Instead, those listeners become locked in their past, and relive one terrible event from their life over and over for as long as the music lasts. This can lead to extreme mental breakdown, unless a series of willpower saves are made.

However bad the bone plectrum is, it pales in comparison to the Harp of Insaile - a harp made from the bones of an unlucky lover. The harp is malicious and vindictive. Should the Wail of the Banshee be used on the Harp of Insaile, cities have been known to lose their inhabitants overnight from mass suicides.
