Music Box Inn

A music box displaying a top-down view of a quaint tavern scene in impressive detail, including a bard strumming the notes of the song played when the box is opened. At will, someone holding the box open can enter the Music Box Inn, a self-contained microdimension where one can enjoy the trappings of a crossroads inn in peace and safety for as long as they wish. To leave, one needs to simply walk out the tavern door and they will reappear standing near the box. While visiting, however, the music box remains where it was in the ordinary dimension where it could be lost, picked up by someone else, or smashed. Who knows what would happen to those remaining in the Inn if this were to occur.

Scroll of Higher Order Displacement

This lengthy scroll describes a powerful spell that is mostly complete and understandable only to those who are well-versed in the arcane arts.

When you attempt to perform the spell described on the scroll, Roll+INT. ◾On a 10+, you have successfully cast the spell. Your dimensions - height, width, and depth - are moved from the first through third dimensions and are moved to the fifth through eighth spatial dimensions. This effectively renders you invisible and incorporeal to mortal eyes and magics altering only the base dimensions (most basic spells). ◾On a 7-9, only your depth is ascended to the ninth spatial dimension, leaving your height and width on the first and second as normal. This renders you two-dimensional in the mortal world. You can still be seen and felt, but not from the side. ◾On a 6-, part of you is transposed to the to a dimension of time rather than space. You will not be able to return to the lower dimensions at the time of your choosing, but rather earlier or later than desired. You also return noticeably aged, lower a stat by one, permanently.

Forget-Me-Not Scroll

An old but pristine scroll made with velvet-smooth white paper and rollers made from gold with inlaid gemstones in the shape of a purple, bunched flower. Whenever a passage is written on the scroll, it is seared into the memory of the writer: they are unable to forget whatever was written even through magical means. Once copied elsewhere, the writing on the scroll vanishes and the memory acts as a normal one.

The Shimmering Orb

A soft and slightly squeezable ball about the size of two fists put together, it sparkles and shimmers like sunlight filtering through the surface of a pool.

When thrown at a surface, the ball will burst and a knee-high water elemental in the shape of an ocean creature emerges. This elemental will understand and attempt to perform any simple tasks given to it, and can reshape its form as needed. If the surface tension keeping it together is ever broken, the water elemental will pop and die leaving behind only an inert puddle.

The Wave Ring

This simple silver ring has a repeating wave pattern in the metal. When worn, the ring imbues you with the endless endurance of the ocean waves. You do not need to eat, nor do you feel tired. You can ignore the effects of stunned, weak, or sick. However, while worn you cannot be healed by mundane or magical means, and removing the ring requires a defy danger+WIS and the return of exhaustion.

Green-black coral is arranged in layers to make a seahorse vase that comes filled with saltwater. The seahorse rests on its tail when placed on a flat surface.

The Seahorse Vase can continually supply any liquid it has been filled with. Each time after pouring, regardless of the amount, roll a d6. On a 1, the vase has emptied and will suddenly feel lighter.

Taishi Mountain Grass Tea

This fine tea powder is made of long grasses cultivated in the high reaches of Taishi Mountain where the grass is watered directly by the clouds themselves. The dried tea is often kept in a fine stone jar. It can be brewed as a soothing hot tea on cold days or mixed with cool water to make a refreshing beverage during the summer. It tastes bitter and earthy before giving way to an aftertaste of fresh mint. Taishi Mountain grass tea is said to provide clarity of mind, much like a deep inhalation of the cool mountain air that the grass grows in.

When consumed, Taishi Mountain grass tea provides +1 forward to Discern Realities, or it can be used to clear an affection of the mind such as Confused or Stunned.

Toadstone

Everyone knows toads are all poisonous creatures, but somehow they avoid poisoning themselves. Of course, the reason they are able to do so is because of the small stone in their head. This stone has been taken from the head of a poisonous toad and carved to resemble its toadly form. Kept in a pouch pulled shut with a leather thong, this toadstone can be worn as an amulet or kept on one's belt.

The toadstone will absorb the ill effects of any poison inflicted upon the wielder one time before crumbling into pieces.

Horn of Villmund the Enlightener

A curving horn of ivory and gold, carved with a scene of monks meditating under a waterfall of demons and vile things. It has a large crack running through the far end, but seems like it will hold.

When you blow the horn in your time of need, roll+CHA. On a hit, WIS+2 ethereal warrior monks billow forth from the end of the horn and fight alongside you effortlessly. On a 10+, they also bestow some wisdom upon you about your situation, take +1 forward when acting on the information. On a miss, Villmund's warriors find you lacking, mark 1 box in addition to what the GM says. Once 3 boxes have been marked, Villmund's spirit will come to you to collect the horn. He will suggest a course of action to improve your wisdom; if you do so, mark XP.

Living Clay

This blue-green clay is easily altered by hand and can never be hardened. It will attempt to move around in whatever form it is given; if made into a ball it will roll around but if made into a small horse it will gallop instead. It cannot be commanded or controlled, though maybe if you had a way to communicate properly with it...

Candle of Dismay

This grey candle sparkles softly with silver even in utter darkness, although the blinking light is not enough to see by. It is carved into the shape of a huddled person, warped and half-melted from use.

When lit, any intelligent creature in its light will be overcome with an overwhelming sense of despair, though the candle burns down quickly. Those affected are incapable of acting or rationalizing. Offering to blow out the candle counts as leverage for Parley.

Earth Dragon Powder

Earth Dragons are able to burrow through even the hardest stone as if it were soft clay. This powder is said to be made of an Earth Dragon's body after it was slain, dried in the sun, and ground down. It is chalky and will stick to stone. Natural stone or metal material that it is applied to will be pliable with just your bare hands. One use is enough to coat a wall or dig a deep hole. Small applications such as rolling a sword into a ball of bronze does not require a use.
