Zeno's Teaspoons

This is a set of four finely crafted silver teaspoons. They have a slightly dull appearance which polishing cannot remove. Two of the spoons have magical properties alone, the other two are used as a pair.

The first, Zeno's Bountiful Spoon, has the image of a cup on its handle, a slight brownish tinge to it and an aromatic smell. When it is used to stir a liquid, the volume of the liquid increases. The first stir increases the volume by a half, the second by another quarter, the third by an eighth and so forth. Even magical liquids can be increased this way, although a universal adhesive causes the spoon to stick fast in place. If this spoon is taken away and later used to stir a previously stirred liquid, the increases continue from where they left off rather than anew. Because the series half + quarter + eighth + ... converges to unity, this spoon can double the volume of a liquid after an infinite number of stirs but never more than double it.

The second, Zeno's Spoon of Alchemy, has an image of a balance on the handle. When used to measure ingredients for cooking, alchemy or similar, the first spoonful of a substance is normal, the second measures one half of normal, the third one quarter, the fourth one eighth and so on. If used to measure something else then this sequence starts anew. If it is subsequently used to continue measurement of a previous measured substance, the sequence again starts anew. By measuring and either adding or discarding the measured amount, any volume can be accurately approximated.

The final pair of spoons, Zeno's Singing Spoons, have a bell inlaid on their handles and a small flat patch worn on their rear convex faces. If both spoons are held between adjacent fingers and struck together, a pleasing tone is produced. By continuing to do this, the tone increases an octave on each subsequent strike. Thus the tone rapidly becomes inaudible. When played by somebody with an appropriate performance skill, the frequency doubling can be changed to a halving at will. This means that the octave can be reduced or increased each strike. The single chord stays pleasing throughout but melodies are not possible.

Using a spoon in a manner for which it is not intended does nothing interesting. It behaves exactly as a mundane spoon would in the same situation.

Consecration of the Beast Friend

The Consecration of the Beast Friend is an artificial claw made of gold, ornate with almost invisible spirals and waves. It is the size of a lion's claw, hollow on the inside. It sports two small gouges and tiny holes around the crown, for an easier fitting.

One needs an expert hand to fit this claw onto a willing predator: that is, a dog, wolf, bear, bird of prey, or big feline with a good amount of trust into the owner of the Claw. It might also be fitted onto an orca's tooth.

The owner must be close to the beast during the whole process, if only to keep it calm, but also to form the bond. At the end of the process, the gifter must also tend the beast as it recovers and gets acquainted with the new claw.

The claw cannot be removed until death. It makes the beast supernaturally healthy and strong, and cancels the effects of aging until the very end of the beast's natural life span. The claw's bearer grows much wiser and more astute as time passes, and will end up dominating its kin like a monarch. Last, the gifter and the gifted share a privileged mind link, being able to understand each other in the blink of an eye and to sense distress across huge distances.

A beast thus gifted is no longer a familiar, but rather a hero in its own right.

The Stick of Abundance/Rough Approximation

Tired of paying accountants for manual counts of the peasants in his kingdom and of the traitors that lined his dungeon walls, and feeling those peasants may be cheating on their biweekly taxes... The mighty King Frugallan tasked his Head Wizard to create a device that will allow him to quickly count the vassals under his 'benevolent' reign.

Bereft of money due to the high income tax rates placed on wizards (and non-wizards), the poor High Wizard struggled for an insight.

It is said her insight came when the tax collector was at her door asking for the weekly Door Usage Tax..she thought to herself ' I pay more taxes than I can shake a stick at!'

That was the lucky break, as she only could afford a branch (which although free, still had a pretty hefty sales tax to purchase) to use.

And thus with some clever Enchantering, The Stick of Abundance was created. It was a simple wooden stick, that when you shook it at something of 'abundance', it would magically tell you how many there were.

For example, the King was able to survey his kingdom and learn there were:
50,000 Squirrels in his kingdom not paying taxes for pine nuts
703 Traps laid within the week for squirrels
75 (a week later 475) traitors that lined his dungeon walls
14 disgruntled accountants no longer needing to be employed

The last thing he counted was:
14 sharpened pencils in his back

The mage became the future Queen of the Kingdom. Seeing the danger in an all knowing stick, employed the accountants back and buried the Stick of Abundance.

It grew into a magical tree thereby giving...Sticks of Rough Approximation!. They give wildly varying results especially at higher counts.

It is said though the mage has created a few other Sticks of Abundance that she has kept secret..

Bookmark of Stylish Magnification

Centuries ago, a stranger walked across the land. He went by the name of Jörge or Börge. Old-looking and clad in worn-out clothes, he said he was looking for a place to hide a treasure he was carrying: though he would show it to nobody, it allegedly was a disk with but a single side to it.

He had more treasures with him, including three small marble dice so heavy one had trouble lifting them with one hand, and a single word which summed up all poetry in his own mouth - but, in someone else's, was just meaningless.

Many people sought him out for his wisdom, his tales and his treasures. To one, a woordcarver, he gave the gift of a branch from a tree that grew in a far away land.

The woodcarver decided that the branch was so thin he could only make bookmarks out of it, yet that was to be his masterwork. So twelve he did, each ornate with a figurehead. The twelve figureheads are: a crowned king, a crowned queen, a male commoner, a female commoner, a fair maiden, a hooded figure, a side-looking hawk, an owl's head, a swan's neck and head, a rabbit's head, a square filled with (unmoving) clockwork, and an oval filled with elfic-style interlacing. Below each figurehead are three hand-long, rounded out blades of lacquered and gold-laced wood, between which the pages are pinched.

A book with a Bookmark of Stylish Magnification is no longer ordinary. Its pages become infinite. No matter how many you open, there are still more against the covers, and between the bookmark's blades. The book is still about the same topic, though - so if you use the bookmark on a love novel, you get an infinite number of scenes from the same love story; if you use it on a treatise, you get the same topic explained in infinitely various ways, for infinitely various cases.

The moment the Bookmark is taken out, the book turns normal again. One cannot open an infinite book twice at the same page.

While this may seem trivial, having an infinite repertoire of texts is immensely useful to artists, teachers and law-makers. There are also some who have gotten an obscure book and used it to sell oracles or to make themselves into prophets. And some people just love to read the same story again and again, never having to see the end of it.

A less refined use would be to get an infinite supply of used paper...

"Oh So Wise Blinky the Wandering Storyteller who dresses so keen in bells and pointy boots, Where did the phrase 'Cook The Books' come from?"

I'm so glad you asked.

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away, newly ruled by a tyrannical tyrant named Frugallan (you may have heard of him), taxes and exemptions were so complicated that an enterprising young mage was taxed (heh!) with developing a device that would ensure that wealthy nobles everyone could save every possible dime they could.

The young mage developed the BookCook™, a magical oven of sorts. You would bring your books and ledgers in, slide them in the BookCook, and it would magically 'cook the books', filling in numbers and deductions as needed - to save. you. money!

The longer you put it in the BookCook, the more deductions would appear.

It came with several settings that few ever actually used as usually just hitting 3:00 was enough for most things:
FopCorn - That new hat that is taller than your body? Tax deduction!
Pizzazz - Fluffs up your expenses. That yacht? Written off as a gardening tool!
Leverage - Suddenly owe people for strange expenses, thereby lowering your tax bill. It's magic.
Food Plate - Write off expensive meals.
Potato - When you want your book to completely disappear, put in the ledger with a potato. Press the button. Blam! Start up new business.
Frozen Vegetable - No one really knows what this one does.
There are several other buttons but no one really remembers what they are.

As said earlier, to be honest most of these buttons pretty much just did what typing in 3:00 would do. Although it was touted as being a wonder device for all classes, the noble class definitely enjoyed its use the most. In fact, all theses deductions simply increased the tax burdens on those unfortunate enough not to be able to afford to use it.

The BookCook had a very successful first few years, before it was banned by the King. The King, very miffed at the Mage, gave her a choice, become Head Mage of the Realm, or rot for years in the deep underground prison cells.

Compass of Cleansing

The Compass of Cleansing was created as a tool for use by the fastidious adventurer. It features several needles with two dials and a slot on the side. The compass is primarily composed of brass and unicorn horn.
Developed by Rothgar the wizard, the tool incorporates several features. Unfortunately, Rothgar did not understand the meaning of cleanse and so incorporated the dictionary entry into the spell this has caused several unintended side effects. There are numerous hands and dials that can be adjusted on the compass which are listed below:

Red Needle: points north. Non magical.
White Needle: points to the nearest clean water source.
Blue Needle: given a heading and distance on the appropriate dials, the compass can lead an adventurer to a spot by the cleanest road.
Black Needle(s): if a sample vial of blood or other tissue is inserted in the slot on the side, black needles will point towards all members of that species.

Someone holding the Compass of Cleansing will:
- recover from poison and sickness effects at a 4x rate
- Feel an obsessive need to keep themselves and their belongings clean
- Desire only a liquid diet of water and fruit or vegetable juices.
- Feel no guilt for misdeeds
- Feel an overwhelming urge to kill any and all members of a species whose tissue is inserted into the slot.


The creation of the Compass of Cleansing coincides with the subsequent extinction of the unicorn.

The Cursed Fork of Bokkuz

In the time when the world was created, the Gods found that they could get the best for their own creatures by trading with their peers. Of course, that led to some abuse, as several gods threatened war if any god's creatures ate on their own creatures' lands. As a result, many mortal races began starving.

Seeing this, Bokkuz, a minor God who had been remotely involved in creating tiny races such as the Gnomes, decided that he would gift the mortals with an item that would make it easier for them to survive the growing strife among the gods.

He crafted a tool which had a handle and four points - one for each element in the world. By using this tool, each mortal would be able to pick at the food (grain, fruits, meat etc.) without the Gods noticing. He allegedly said, "with this, you can have free lunch."

Incidentally, it was found that it coud also be used on gold, gems, and anything of value to a God - and that means a lot, since there are Gods who prize garbage and some who prize foul air.

But Bokkuz's plot was uncovered before he could make copies of it. He was put to trial and chained to a high hill where little birds would come and chip at his liver - and that tickles a lot. The gods wanted to break his tool, but divine craft is nigh-unbreakable and so it was only bent.

Many copies of the Fork have been made ever since, in an effort to recover the lost gift, but only the original one could still yield power over the riches that only the Gods bestow.

Religions erased Bookuz from memory, and today, it is often said, "there is no such thing as a free lunch", but it's a lie from the Gods.

The Whistle of Delayed Gratification

Appears as a two inch long ivory cylinder with a diameter of half an inch. It is decorated with 7 bands of rose gold and a small inlay of jet in the shape of a raised hand. If the whistle is active, a small red gem will appear on the third finger of the inlay.

The Whistle of Delayed Gratification was initially constructed to summon a djinn to grant wishes. It was unfortunately linked to a djinn who was down on his luck and lacking in magical transportation. As such, he must wait until he can hitch a ride to our realm in order to grant wishes. Times it takes for him to appear vary wildly from 2 hours to 37 years. Median time is around 17 days. Each user is limited to one wish.

Because of unpleasant interactions with prior masters on his appearing after they wanted him, the djinn now makes it a point not to appear but to read the whistle owner's wish directly from his mind. The owner of the whistle will be granted a wish as soon as he thinks of one, even if they were not the person who blew the whistle. If a call is already active, subsequent blows will not result in any further calls until a wish is granted.

Historical events linked with the whistle by historians include:
- The elevation of the beggar Sha-kith-al to king of Corawyn
- The destruction of Marth Ingel under a mountain of various food
- The marriage of Rengial to Withesin
- The destruction of Hoei palace by a giant rat
- The lack of fleas anywhere within Staper City

The Leather Leash of Cerberus

Upon stumbling on a lengthy leather leash near a wooded dogpark, you determine it is connected to a seemingly friendly tri-colored chihuahua.

"What's the matter, pupples? Where's your owner?" You say, not realizing the dog is now your familiar. As such, the wee dog starts walking with you, taking the Alpha spot, front and center.

In an encounter, the leash magically transforms the wee pup into a multiheaded beast, the size of an Irish Wolfhound or Mastiff. This mystical creature has equally scary teeth, but more incessant barking.

On an encounter, the leash enables the creature to manifest different results:

Scary human, distant: human gains +1 humor
Scary human, close: human gains +1 terror
Scary small dog, distant: other dog gains +1 humor
Scary small dog, close: dog-creature gains +1 terror
Scary big dog, distant: other dog gains +1 humor and +3 ignore
Scary big dog, close: other dog gains +1 humor and +5 ignore
Squirrel!: dog-creature is distracted...

Superbowl

This crudely made wooden bowl bears no ornamentation, save for the many woodknots in it. It has many dents in which tiny pieces of food are usually stuck.

The purpose of the bowl is to connect its owner with a seemingly infinite feed of power. When using it, one must wear the bowl like a cap, and press upon any of the woodknots (which requires either practice, or a mirror). Each knot is related to one different power, and two Superbowls may not have the same connections.

Each knot confers one superpower. Activating a new power requires to press on another knot, thus cancelling the previous one.

People nearby may find themselves lacking energy in related departments as a result of the pell tapping into these, but that is rare.

The effects of the spell last for as long as the bowl is being worn, then they wear off in a few minutes.

Nota: the bowl must still be used for meals once in a day, otherwise the wood dries up and loses its powers.

Malina’s Flowers

Famed glassblower Bela Malina created twelve class flowers, one each of a rose, tulip, carnation, iris, daffodil, orchid, foxglove, chrysanthemum, gerbera, lily, gladiolus, and a daisy. Each flower is made of delicately colored glass in exquisite detail. These were original presented as a bouquet for a royal wedding between Prince Caspar and Princess Jioina. Unfortunately, at the last minute, the wedding was cancel and war erupted between the two kingdoms. The bouquet of glass flowers was lost.

If found, each glass flower bestows a persuasion bonus when gifted at the same time. While in possession of the glass flower, the recipient is charmed by the giver. Multiple flowers do not increase the persuasion bonus.

If all twelve flowers are found, the persuasion bonus is doubled when gifted at the same time and the recipient is charmed by the giver permanently.

Hubrack's Blessed BBQ Apron

Hubrack was half-orc, all chef, with amazing taste. His Spiced Boar was talked about in no less than twenty kingdoms and won the Cinder Cook Championship for ten years running, partly because no one else could get away with burning a house down in order to get that authentic pillaged flavor.

Willing to go to extremes for his art, and completely uncaring of fashion, he asked a Wizard to make him an apron by which the world would know him. And the Wizard rose to the challenge. Gathering bones from every type of creature Hubrack had ever cooked, the Wizard Tallisham used enchanted thread to embroider each bone onto the apron. As long as a creature's bones were on the apron, Hubrack could not be hurt by that creature while he was cooking.

Of course, the Wizard Tallisham was no fool, and left off the bones of her race. Which is why a mere year after gaining said apron, Hubrack was ingloriously killed in his own pot of stew by his own daughter...

The apron was supposedly lost in the scuffle. But if found, it still imbues the wearer with protection from against all manner of creatures - but not against orcs.

Lamp!

In the beginning there was darkness. And Akthal looked upon the darkness and said "I can't see a thing in here." So Akthal summoned his godly powers and created Light. And Akthal and his siblings were pleased for they could see each other.

Light was a finicky thing though and flitted from place to place. So Akthal thought and said, "I must contain the light that it will do my bidding." So he gathered his siblings together and the created vessels for the light. Some were large and some were small. And Light was contained in many pieces from the stars of the universe to the motes of phosphorescence in plankton. Akthal was most proud of his creation Lamp which allowed for light to be easily transported.

However, Sibjonin the brother of Akthal was jealous of Akthal and the power of light. He worked in secret to create Lamp! which was obviously better than Lamp because it had an exclamation point. Sibjonin created Lamp to contain all the light in the universe. Akthal discovered Sibjonin's treachery and struck him down, but not before Sibjonin hid Lamp! away.

Woe to the finder of Lamp! When activated, Lamp! will consume all visible sources of light leaving fires that burn but give no light, striking the stars from the sky and the glint of passion in a lover's eye. Take heed and beware!

Scarf of the Stranger

The Scarf of the Stranger comes in many different designs. They can be anything from a raggedy and musty wool rag to a very fancy and ornate silk cloth with gold and silver embroidery. The variable appearance of these scarves makes these objects hard to detect and identify. These scarves are highly prized by both spies of the realm and bards, especially actors.

Each scarf is imbued with the power to change the wearers voice. The lower quality scarves can only alter the sound of the voice in one way, determined at the time the scarf is made: deeper, higher, raspier, or smoother. Medium quality scarves can alter the voice in any of the four ways the wearer chooses. And high quality scarves can absorb the voice of anyone who is wearing it when its command word is activated, allowing ant wearer afterwards to use the same voice.

Some scarves carrying a specific voice pattern are used as keys for voice coded devices.

Brush of Fastidiousness

This brush consists of a small shaped wooden handle with some short stiff hairs of unknown type on one face. It is always immaculately clean and well presented. When the brush is used to clean or polish any surface, it leaves behind a reside of the most common contaminant appropriate to the surface. Clothing gains a layer of lint, shelves become dusty, metal slightly tarnishes, curtains stain, etc. In no case is the produced residue harmful or detrimental, just visually unappealing.

These insipid items were originally was created by a wicked crone who used them when visiting others so she could later point out the uncleanliness in a rude and obnoxious manner. That many servants were beaten and some even killed never seemed to bother her conscience.

Ria's Kazoo of Wealth

Ria's Kazoo of wealth can appear in a multitude of colors. It cannot be distinguished from an ordinary kazoo by non-magical means. If played in the presence of another, the beguiling tune will prompt the hearer to hand over all of their wealth after only five minutes.

This artifact is constantly sought after by street urchins after the story of Eldrik the Rat Boy spread. The wealth he accumulated allowed him to purchase and run the best inn in West Greenhaven. A side effect of playing the Kazoo of wealth is that the user's belief in their own musical skills will rapidly rise and they will inevitably discard the Kazoo at some point.

Given the relatively long time frame for the effect to complete, it is common for wealthy listeners to either silence kazoo players or give them a pittance to "Go play that somewhere else."

The Purple Clay Marble of Certain Rolling Doom.

The Purple Clay Marble of Certain Rolling Doom is a small light innocuous looking marble that many wealthy people use to guard their most valuable of treasures.

To activate, the wealthy individual simply puts the marble on top of something they value highly and there it will sit. When a thief breaks in and attempts to steal the item, the marble will fall onto the floor with a heavy ominous thud, and start rolling toward the user making loud suspenseful sounds.

It will roll along, rolling through any barriers and following the user non-stop for at least a day, growing in 'magical weight' into the tens of thousands of pounds (but not size). It will turn and follow the thief no matter which way they go, going uphill, downhill, left..right...up and down walls..

If it eventually catches up to the thief, it will roll onto the thief, pinning them to the ground, crushing them under the immensity of the marble's magical weight.

It is a truly embarrassing 'weigh' to die but possibly quite comical to onlookers. Chased then crushed by tiny marble. A good thief these days will look for marbles before taking said treasure. An excellent thief will look for marbles on top of marbles before taking said treasure.

Also, for the brave soul willing to pluck one of their eyeballs(or only eyeball, in the case of cyclops and similar creatures), the Purple Clay Marble can be inserted into the eye socket with a big wet slurping sound. The marble being magical will shrink or expand as needed to fill the eye socket.

Why would someone do this ?
The Purple Clay Marble of Certain Doom gives +5 in staring contests.

Bartel's Pin of Irrevocable Unraveling

The Pin of Irrevocable Unraveling was first created as a prank by Bartel the wizard when he was seven years old. He disliked the washerwoman who would always starch his shirts too much so he made the pin and slipped it in with her other pins. The pin appears quite normal and can only be identified by three very faint green, concentric circles on the head of the clothes pin.

When the Pin of Irrevocable Unraveling is attached to any woven object, it will coat the individual pieces in a frictionless substance that will cause the individual threads to have no hold on each other. Depending on the stress on the object, fibers will start to fall apart within minutes. The effect spreads across the fabric from the pin at a rate of 12 inches/minute. The pin can not be removed until the cloth it is on completely falls apart. The only remedy is to cut the pin and any affected material out before the effect can spread.

Garrick's Instant Fire

Never worry about not being able to start a fire again with Garrick's Instant Fire. Garrick's Instant Fire is composed of pre-burnt kindling. that's right! Pre-Burnt! The fire is already in this kindling. Simply select one of the charred sticks from the bundle of Garrick's Instant Kindling, snap the stick in two, and drop one the ground where you want the fire to be. Each charred stick can create its own small campfire. Need a bigger fire? Simply snap more than one stick. Snap five sticks at once for a massive bonfire. Disclaimer -- snapping one stick may be easy, but each additional stick does become harder to break at the same time. It takes a very strong person to snap all five sticks at the same time. Tools may be used to snap the sticks. For your convenience, and safety, Garrick's Instant Fire comes in a handy metal case to prevent accidental and premature fire starting. Each metal case holds up to five sticks of Garrick's Instant Fire.

Earmuffs of Ice

Created by a self-conscious sorcerer, when wearing these earmuffs, they create a 20-meter hemisphere of snow and ice which centers around the wearer. The sorcerer who created them had perpetually cold ears and the winter weather was merely an excuse to wear them... while making it seem like they were necessary. Of course, when people began to realize the unseasonable weather followed that particular sorcerer around, the sorcerer had to make a hasty escape. Where the earmuffs are now is unknown, though people are on the lookout for that distinctive shade of powder blue.

Evanard's Slotted Spoon of Safe Serving

Evanard was a paranoid wizard of meagre power. She was forever fearful of being poisoned while eating so she created an alliterated spoon that filters out any harmful substances and leaves them behind. Size is no limitation, the slots expand to bypass the noxious and retain the nutritious. Poisons, diseases and the like will never pass your lips with this wondrous utensil.
