OK so 3.5 D&D, My players are planning to rob a wizard shop. they come across a box labeled JUNK. of course they take it because it's unsecured. unknowingly it is full of cursed items. So I need a bunch of awesome curse items
>>28328109Carvin Marvin from KODT
A cursed pair of Gauntlets of Ogre Strength.Raises Strength by +10 and makes the wearer Large, but hideously disfigures them and lowers all mental stats by 10.
>>28328109Belts of Sex Change.
One of those nose bone things that tribal people wear, gives the wearer an unresistable urge to touch horribly ugly faces.
>>28328109Try the Shadow Arm. Pitch black rust-stained metal arm, form shoulder to fingertip. Put it on, and you got great armor on that arm, AND you now have the power to use strong telekinesis anywhere that there's shadows present.The only issue is that it turns your arm to shadow. Permanently. And the only way you can use that arm is if the armor is on it, otherwise it's now a useless shadowy arm.
what about a bag of devouring? always one of my favorites
The Belt of Gender Change.You still look the same and have the same sexual interests, but you just... FEEL like the opposite gender.
>>28328109 a weapon that causes them to become incredibly fearful and goes as far as making them shit themselves if they don't pass a skill check.A sword that causes the wielder to change genders.DARK DEMONIC EDGE BLADE THAT DRAINS THE WIELDER'S LIFEA hammer that weighs 1000 lbs when being usedA staff that attracts swarms of wasps
>>28328313>A staff that attracts swarms of waspsnothing good can come of this
>>28328109Headband of the Bimbo. +8 CHA and enhances body parts related to sex and sexual desire. but reduces Int and Wis by 6 or sets them to 6, whichever is lower.
you can make them all nasty, or you can live up to what the box says and just make them lame magic itemslist was made by someone else for the record
>>28328109Orphan Shawl.It's an old ragged and slightly blood-stained blanket, always big enough to wrap up everything but your feet, it seems.The thing is, the blanket is always warm -- it will always, always keep you just warm enough to survive, no matter how cold it is. You could throw yourself down in the middle of the arctic, wrap yourself up in it, and you'll be JUST warm enough to survive. Not comfortable, especially with cold feet, but you'll live.The thing is that it has the soul of the orphan child who died wearing it still in it. When you wear the blanket, it feels eerily like a small child is somehow holding onto you, shivering constantly and breathing uneasily, which makes sleep that much harder.If the blanket is packed away instead of worn, the sound of shivering and uneasy breathing becomes worse. Not enough to be heard, but always enough to distract the owner and make them aware that it sounds like a small child dying of cold, and it only goes away if the blanket is wrapped around you, which can look sort of gross and hobo if you wander around like that all the time.But you'll always be warm, no matter the weather, at least.The only way to put the child to rest is to bury the blanket in a warm grave, and make sure it's sanctified.
The short cape of Kender charisma
>>28328658But this is just a stinky cloak with a huge neon target painted on it.
>>28328690And the words "I Stole All Those Things You Lost" painted underneath
>>28328109Staff of Whizzerdness: Upon inspection, appears to be a Staff of the Magi topped with a Gold Dragon Orb. Any non-caster touching it receives 4d8 negative levels, each of which lasts for 24 hours, after which the subject must make a DC 37 Will save per negative level lest it become permanent. Any caster who picks this staff up thinks of themself as an immensely powerful arch magi, to which all other magi should bow, and that the staff is granting him this power. In actuality, all of his spells per day are automatically expended as he prepares them, with the spell in the slot being replaced by Dancing Lights, no matter what the slot level was.
>>28328109>My players are planning to rob a wizard shopIs this even possible?There is always magic traps that could kill or incapacitate you.A Wizard that don't cast Glyph of Warding inside of his shop, isn't a Wizard for me.
>>28328927I'll take Anti-Magic and Dispels for 200, Alex.
>>28328927Of course there will be stuff to try to stop them. but by any chance if they do some how get by, I want to leave a surprise for them
>>28328978or that, that works too. but they don't have anti-magic yet and limited amount of dispels
Half and Half BeltChanges the sex of the bottom half of a persons body. Their top half remains unchanged.Frog HeadbandAnyone the user kisses turns into a frog.
A Deck of That One Thing: It appears to be a Deck of Many Things for all intents and purposes. However, no matter how many cards you draw from it, they are always the same as the one before. This ends the game.
>>28328234Kandra were here, Koloss suck ass
>>28329077That's some nice futa right there. BrB gonna magical realm my players.
>>28328109Belt Buckle of Stout StrengthCauses the user to gain +3 to strength, but they gain the obese deformity from the BoVD. Cannot be removed.Ring of Mental ProjectionAn item that evicts the mind of the user into the aether until it is removed from their body. In this state the wearer is prone to any unnatural being that can detect them from between planes and their body is catatonic as well.Lute of Rust LustA beautiful instrument that plays any tune that the individual thinks of, but the noise summons a ravenous hoard of Rust Monsters
>>28328109I think the best ones are the useful ones that have awkward side effects. They need to be useful enough to be worth keeping.Ring of Invulnerability - you take no damage from any source nor can spells effect you. You cannot move, speak, hear or see. The only action you can take is to take off the ring."whatever the special quality is that doubles crit range" Scimitar (15-20 crit range) - of oppposite gender when wielded. Give it a high enhancement bonus too then wait for combat to tell them that they aren't proficient in the armor they are wearing because it is sized for the opposite gender. Enjoy your positives and negatives.Ring of greater invisibility that doesn't work on clothes and items. You're going to have to strip. Exploding Rune Stamp (comes with ink.) The explosions is virtually harmless.Wildshape animal crackers including: lion, dog, cat, panda, rabbit, horse, mouse, etc. Once eaten you become the animal until you eat another one. The packet has directions for use and explains that when you eat the human shaped crackers you revert to your original form. There is only one of each cracker including only one human/biped cracker.Cloak of fire resistance. Creates a rain cloud above you that keeps you drenched. The cloak has no hood and every now and then you are stuck by a tiny lightning bolt.
>>28329315Those are nifty. I think I'll skip the animal crackers one. the players will force feed it to their enemies
>>28329173Here is an even better ideaDress of the Sexes+10 seductiveness+10 attractivenessUsers bottom half becomes the opposite sex.User doesn't realize that their bottom half has changed sex unless they are having sex with someone.Effects last one hour once the dress comes off.
>>28329413Look the ERP thread is down the hall since all this does is inspire obscene thoughts for what some of my characters would do with itIt ain't much of a curse if it can lead to that many fun times
>>28329413yea curses are suppose to hinder more than help
>>28329706I mean once my lady manages to impregnate half of the royal house THAT would be a hindrance, but not necessarily to her
>>28329410>>28329315Gelatinous Cube Bait. When removed from the packet. This bait attracts gelatinous cubes, causing them to ignore anything else. It works too well and keeps attracting gelatinous cubes and other oozes of all sizes, tiny ones coming out from cracks in walls. They merge ontop of the bait and beginning growing to form a gigantic ooze that begins to fill up the dungeon.Or: Medallion of the Ooze Tamer. Throw this medallion into an ooze to tame it. It makes the ooze sentient and able to speak common. Now they can tame it, if it doesn't attack them first.Doubling Sticker. Place one of these stickers on an object and it immediately doubles, giving you two. If the sticker is removed or peels off (as it does after 24 hours) the two objects fly toward each other, colliding and breaking. Stickers can be reused a few times while still sticky.
>>28329706>attracts a man>doesn't realize what the dress does>gets ready to have sex>takes off dress>reveals a cockYea, that will turn out well
>>28328531Looks like a period
>Boots of Careless yet Swift FeetThe wearer can move extremely fast, but can't control where he goes.>Wooden ShieldA modest looking wooden shield that, in reality, is incredibly durable, but only against wooden weapons.>Blade of the MasterChef™A beautiful, large blade of impeccable craftsmanship that is useless outside the kitchen.>Gloves of ExplosionStudded plate gloves. The wearer isn't immune to the explosions generated on impact.
Box of Potions of ____ (something good.) A rubber like band attaches a label to one of the potions. The label says one of the potions went a little wrong but should be harmless enough "with this." It doesn't specify with what. When this potion is consumed the users hair begins to grow uncontrollably. On close inspection of the band says Dragon Whisker and when used to tie back the hair it stops growing. If the character does not use the hair band in a reasonable amount of time they grow their entire lifetimes worth of hair and go bald.
Shield of Weapon Repelling. This shield increases the miss chance of enemies by repelling all weapons. This includes the users weapon which will not stay in his hand.
>>28330059Stealing stuff straight from anime is lame.
>>28328109Have it that one of the items acts as a beacon summoning onsters, at first the party tries to ditch it but it keeps coming back...then it turns out the monsters are not drawn to the amulet but were sent by the wizard who apparently can see and hear the party through the stone...
>>28330144It's unlikely anyone will know.
>Light-Weight Plate>No ACP but it will float away unless secured.
Gloves of TriplicateThe wearer can take any action purely involving their hands and arms three times as fast as normal, but MUST take all actions three times in a row.
+2 Smarmy Sword. Laughs at you and pokes fun when you miss "You swing like an Elf."
>>28328331You seem to be mistaken sir, I believe ONLY good can come from this.
>>28328234Don't people die if one of their stats drops to 0? Or is that just constitution?Could be a remarkably effective assassination tool against the stupid, unwise, or uncharming.
>>28328429>That resolutionYeah, because I really enjoy spending 10 minutes scrolling to read a single sentence. Seriously, what's wrong with you?
>>28330217Just Con kills you. I don't know if 0 Int makes you braindead though.
>>28330246I run is at0 Str = ragdoll0 Dex= ragdoll0 Con = dead0 Wis = retardation0 Int= brain dead0 Cha = cannot speak and/or look like something that a zombie pooped out... I'm not sure never ran into that one
>>28330246Yeah, Con 0 kills you, anything else at zero and you can't act for one reason or another.
>Cursed double edged sword of entropyThis needs a little bit of prep and a lot of alcohol.Its stats are marginally better than any other bladed weapon the party has at any point. But with a 50 / 50 change that anyone hit by it ALWAYS has to roll any defensive rolls twice and choose the worse result for each hit.But you'll not want to use it. Every time the blade inflicts damage, add and record the total of all dice scores rolled by defenders - the double rolled dice.At the end of the encounter, that is the total number of randomly determined pages that get torn out of all rule books in use in the campaign during its continuation (not literally. I hope.)If the only mention of an item or rule or player class is on that page, its gone. Forever. Like it never existed.
>>28330246Having your Wisdom lowered to 0 makes you so prone to distraction that SQUIRREL!Having your Charisma lowered to 0 makes you incapable of mustering the force of personality to do anything.Having your Intelligence lowered to 0 makes yoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
>>28330374Oh, right, the alcohol.Optional drinking game rule: if a player doesn't take a shot every time the sword wounds something, the DM doesn't have to randomly determine which pages get ripped out any more and can instead choose freely.This is how irresponsible drunken ur-gods make races extinct,
>>28330344>>28330468Charisma 0:No one can express empathy towards you.You're considered a "thing", not a person.And not in the way a slave is "a lesser person" in some juristictions, or a beloved childhood toy can evoke sentimentality enough to stir empathy either.Whilst lawful people would still consider your unlawful killing murder, they'd first have to be reminded by someone who is concerned with interpreting the letter of the law, rather than the rights of people.Also, frenzied monsters interviewed for word association games will respond to your name with "smash!" or "destroy!" but not "kill!" because they don't quite associate you as fully alive either.
>>28330662wow that seems harsh but appropriate
Headband of Bombastia: +2 to intimidate checksCannot be removed.Anything said by the wear is done in a LOUD AND OBNOXIOUS VOICE if it can be. This causes a -10 penalty on all CHA rolls, except for Intimidate. Unless the character is 'Small' or smaller. Then it's always.
>>28330188Combine with Iron Boots.
A belt that makes your pants fall down at the worst possible times (e.g. running away).
>>28332364or you could have a belt that makes your pants Never come off. The belt also Never comes off. "Never" doesn't necessarily apply when dangerous and/or magical means are attempted.
Do a snapping teapot like off Harry Potter
Belt of Eternal Period.Cramps. Menstrual flow. Bloating. Mood swings. The whole shebang. Continually, for as long as the belt is worn. Individual aspects of a period come and go, but it never completely stops.Functions regardless of wearer's gender. (Enjoy pissing blood and chunks of tissue, men!)On the plus side, it's 100% effective contraception.
>>28330220What are you talking about? Open the image, zoom in, read each line and scroll down when necessary. It's a big list, of course it will be a long read.
A staff that looks like a totally not cursed item every once in a while the staff gives insight on the enemies or the environment, at the beginning it gives good advice, but as time passes 3 things happen, first the character using the staff will grow needy of it even feeling a strong sense of dread when no in direct contact of the staff, second the user begins to trust the staff's unconditionaly even ignoring his best judgement, third the staff progressively gives worse and worse advice (yeah dude that orc is totaly lvl 5 you could so much kill that dude in a single blow)off course you could rework the exact workings of the object or even what object is it
>>28332538My understanding is pretty much all cursed items have a tendancy to not 'look cursed'
>all these recommendations involving sex changes and then you people complain about /d/ms
>>28332569No they don't. Did you really read everything?
>>28332558I guess it's but, you know like totally not cursed
Classics unremovableBracers that attract projectilesBoots with permanent grease cast on themEndless flask of mexican water that gives the flu
>>28332582Sorry my bad I guess I just saw a couple of sex changing items and my internal "fuck those dudes that try to implement their fetishes in roleplaying"clicked in
How about a returnign throwing axe that also hit you on the return, or one that isimbalanced and so does pitifull bludgeon damage by hitting with the handle
The Mostly Accurate Auspex.a lens that acts as a Scry and as an Identify Item spell, depending on the users preference. It's mostly accurate.Scrying will show things that are *just wrong enough* to give pause. Three beings in the next room--Whether they're actually bandits, or beholders is anyones guess.When used to identify items, it will either slightly misidentify items (+2 sword is actually a +1 or +3), or be completely off base (that Belt of Giants Strength is not actually the Girdle of Masculinity/Femininity.)
>>28330344Retardation is more int, wis is more sensibility.The RAW work like this:0 Str = ragdoll0 Dex = statue0 Con = dead0 Wis = you fall unconscious and have nightmares0 Int = you fall unconscious and stop thinking, you stop counting to potato and became the potato.0 Car = you become catatonic, expressionless and do nothinghttp://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/SRD:Ability_Score_Loss
>>28332600>Boots with permanent grease cast on themBetter, boots of speed with permanent grease cast on them. You move fast, but can't make it through a doorway without crawling.>A returning throwing axe that also hits you as it returns.Not bad.And finally, a handful of potions of stone skin that also permanently turns any carried gold into stone.Perfectly useful, but it'd give the players a fright when they next tried to buy something.
>>28332472What if a vampire ties someone down and has them wear the belt?
>>28328297if I lived in the dungeons and dragons universe I would be pleased with tis outcome.
>>28332907Sucks to be the victim! Vampire just has to pick the lumps out of its morning cup of blood, is all. (Something tells me they wouldn't be much for eating uterine tissue.)
>>28328109A ring of invisibility that only works so long as no one else is looking at you.
A sword that invokes 1d10 immortals ducks (which follows you for all eternity) when you land a strike on a foe.
Gloves of Gripping. They grip onto anything and *will not* slide. You can still pull them directly away from whatever it is though, so you're not stuck like superglue. But it's really, really hard to fumble or be disarmed while wearing them, and they're a big help when climbing. The problem is that they won't come off, and this makes everyday life very difficult. Throwing things is very difficult (you basically have to open up your hand all the way and just push whatever it is away from you as hard as you can), and this makes most ranged weapons basically useless. And forget masturbating or making love (unless you wrap your hands in sheets or something).
>>28333066A ring of invisibility you can only activate by putting it on when somebody is looking at you. You are only invisible to that person/people.
Lenses of Unending VisionsThey appear to simply be lenses of minute seeing, but upon wearing give X-ray vision.At first, you can use them to see through things at will. After a predetermined period of use, you start to see further than you really wanted too, however.Quickly you start seeing into other planes, scenes of merciless slaughter from Warriors Rest, demons torturing souls on the layers of the abyss, unspeakable abominations from the far realm, blinding energy on the positive material, etc etc all burning themselves into the wearer's mind, Will save DCs each minute or the wearer is driven insane by the rapidly shifting scenes.
>>28333066I remember going on a kender d&d page and there was a ring of invisibility. When you put it on the ring (and Only the ring) turns invisible. But I think of that as more of a useless toy than a cursed item.
the cap of fast friendship.wearer gets +2 charisma, and no longer enjoys PC immunity to social checks.
>>28333393Put it on in the middle of a fight while your allies close your eyes for a second.
>>28333622Yeah. It could be useful. But you'd have to take a round to do that, so it'd be tricky.
>>28328236That don't even work.
Black sword that kills enemies on even a graze (no matter how magnificent or great), and feeds the life energy into the user.But it makes the user slowly kill all his friends, he can't turn it away because he needs the life energy to sustain himself and in the end the blade will kill him.
>>28334959A belt discretely labeled 'belt of sex change'. When put on it become irremovable and giant neon pink letters saying "I PUT ON A BELT OF SEX CHANGE" appear and hover over th wearer.
>>28328978Half assed wizard shops maybe. You don't enchant a door to stay open, you enchant a plate of solid steel to open like a door or be transparent like a window. Same with the chests and display cases: absent magic they're solid boxes without openings bolted firmly to the floor.And the antimagic field triggers the windup alarms. All that was holding it off from triggering was a level 1 spell with permanence.It goes downhill from there.
>>28329805>>atach two stickers to each other, sticky sides first>>??????>>grey goo ending
>>28333066Reverse Ring of InvisibilityWhen you put it on, nothing happens. When you take it OFF you turn invisible.It is horribly flimsy.
Ring of Ringing When worn, produces the sound of church bells, localised to the wearers hand. Take 1 sonic damage a round while wearing it, otherwise an extremely effective signaling device. The ringing can be heard for miles.
>>28332675This would work very well with all the other cursed items they would want to identify.
Onomatopoeia Ozrick - An intelligent weapon that is completely harmless unless the wielder actually shouts out and appropriate onomatopoeia, to which the sword functions like a +2 weapon.Barf Bag - Appears to be a bag of holding and functions like one, but whenever one pulls something out of the bag, it's coated in unidentified vomit, sometimes dangerous! May require fort saves vs. disease or person may simply take acid damage!Warm Fuzzies - A robe of fire resistance that causes the wearer to suddenly take on the appearance of an anthropomorphic animal or an actual animal. A favorite gag gift among rangers!The Decking of Many Things - appears to be a deck of cards, whenever a card is drawn, a random single natural attack of a random creature is rolled from an appropriate random encounter table. An appendage or limb of said creature pops out and punches the user in the face!The Boots of Leaping and...? - Provides a +30 competency to jumping/acrobatics on the initial jump, -d20 to stick the landing.Tome of Magic Theory - While it seems like a spellbook at precursory glance, all of the spells' instructions and descriptions are actually filled with comments on the spells from other spell users. "Fireball sucks, use Summon Monster III instead," "I Wish I was dead..." "More like Tensor's Floating DICK,"
Rod of Bee CallingCalls every bee swarm in a 10 km radius. All the bees will move towards the holder. Once they arrive the bees does whatever angry confused bees does.
>>28335638The effect ends automatically after 24 hours but cannot be ended prematurely.
Boots of Infection DanceA pair of boots that have the uncanny effect of making anyone watching the wearer want to dance in sync. Unfortunately the same is true for the wearer and they have to dance if they see anyone else dancing. **Warning tag: May or may not have caused the collapse of several major cities.Music Box of the Ear WormThe music box has a snappy little song recorded on it and after listening to the entire song you can't seem to not whistle, hum, tap, ect the tune for 1d4 weeks after listening. Playing the box again causes it to reset another 1d4 weeks.The Fez of Cryptic WhispersThis delightfully pleasant looking fez grants the wearer a +3 unamed bonus to all Knowledge checks and Local checks relating to mysterious and spooky things.It also grants a +10 Percieved Bonus to Sense Motive checks as the Fez whispers to you about all the horrible things the people around you want to do. Even after taking off the Fez, just being near it makes you hear the whispers.Book of Heretical Lore: Diablocus Hereticus Volume XXIVThis is a small book bound in black leather and held shut with several locks and a pair of chains. The keys have been lost or possibly destroyed to prevent anyone from reading whats inside.Anyone in possession of this book can't help but want to know whats inside but is also immediately branded a Heretic by a random Good Aligned Religious Orginization that will stop at nothing to recover the book.It might just be someone Popes little black boot of booty calls or possibly holds the names of several Devils or Demons. Who knows? You sure don't but you damn well want to know!
>>28335144You'd want to be a pretty successful businessman to afford all that malarkey.
The tongue of languageThe holder of the tongue must pass a DC20 will check, on picking it up, not to tear out their own tongue and place this one in their mouth, where it bonds. The wearer exchanges all knowledge in their native language for one in Demonic.
A bracer.Once it is put on, it grants a small amount of regeneration, but disables the use of that arm due to spikes shooting out from the inside to the bone.Can add other things to it if you want, bonus strength or allow two handed weapons to be one handed, dunno.Probably extremely painful.If someone puts it on without knowing it is cursed you might be able to enjoy their face when you evil grin and ask which arm it is on.In my opinion, cursed items should have a powerful benefit to make you want to use them, but then a nasty drawback to make you reconsider.Should never be something game ending like >>28334986 though, unless you are completely prepared to watch your level 3 players run off to quickdraw stab a god before murdering their party.Also cursed item generator here: http://www.d20srd.org/srd/magicItems/cursedItems.htmYMMV but could be some interesting stuff there. Even minor effects, like just having the item add a tattoo when used, could make a player stop and seriously consider using the item fearing that the effect is much worse than it is.Curious, OP still watching for ideas? See anything good yet?
Staff of piranhas, it is a staff that spouts piranhas out of the tip. Can only be used when staff is upright. If you attempt to get rid of the staff, the staff will show up in front of you. The piranhas attack friend and foe alike. About 40% of the piranhas will land on the caster. The staff also disallows any other spell to be cast.
Cloak of ObfuscationConceals the wearer, their name, and any other identifying features from everyone, including themselves.
Staff or Raise DeadLevitates dead bodies
