    22 KB Bad ass things to make into weapons Anonymous 11/14/10(Sun)08:53 No.12794073  
    We've all heard of the idea "using the iron in people's blood to make a sword" but I think /tg/ can do better than that.

    I heard a while ago someone had the idea of collecting fallen lightning bolts to forge into a sword, lets get some ideas like that.

    There's those strange things that happen when lightning hits the right kind of soil and turns it to glass - maybe incorporating them into a weapon could work for the fallen lightning thing.

    Umm I recently in a campaign made the deadliest weapon so far in our horror (pseudo zombie) modern campaign from the inside of a porn store.
    1. Siphoned gas from car outside
    2. Lighter
    3. Large enema tube (syringe, whatever the hell it's called)
    4. Anal Lube (i.e. petroleum jelly)
    Napalm Enema flame thrower!
    P.S. DMs hate me, he specifically put us in the porn store to make sure we wouldn't have access to good weapons, but instead I come out of it like the fucking pyro from team fortress2 (there was a rubber bondage suit that was also employed as protective gear)

    That depends. Sodium and potassium on water/wet surface is enough to heat things up a lot, perhaps even catch on fire. On top of that, they form a strong base (perhaps both fire and acid damage?). Metallic rubidium, cesium and francium are enough to do some serious damage, the reaction is explosive.

    I was in a campaign were the Mcguffin was four swords based off of the seasons

    Autumn's fire, a golden and red sword that was embossed with the first fallen leaves of fall of the tree of knowledge.

    Summer's storm, a green sword with a constant aura of dry heat about it. The weapon was cooled over the course of an entire summer of storms.

    Spring's guardian, a blue sword that could heal wounds with it's slashes, and grow life where it met the earth. It was not made, but found in the core of an ancient oak tree.

    Winter's Bite, a black and white sword that is constantly stuck with frost to the blade. It was found only after a century of being trapped in ice, a frozen hand of bone clutching at it.

    Kind of a sandbox game, and there was more to each weapon than that, but it didn't really pertain to this thread.

    In my setting, there's 6 legendary swords left by the ancients. However, they're different that when the sword is 'sheathed', it reduced itself down to the gem usually set in the pommel or cross guard of the sword.

    Yeah, it's like a lightsaber, but made of metal, and the grip of the sword goes away too.

    A sword made out of diamonds would be cool. You could use a bunch of small ones interspersed through a regular metal blade.

    It was probably forged from another, bigger sword that was too broken to be used anymore. It has no magic enchantment or fancy secrets but there is a certain aura to it that its only pulled to get shit done. It wasn't made to intimidate Dragons or slay Immortals, it is a tool. Anyone who intends to attack the wielder knows that that once this sword is pulled, there's no turning back, no mercy, no joy, no anger, just another job.

    What sized nail?

    After finding the average weight of the 15 most common nail sizes I came up with 201 nails per pound. That means you'd have to kill at least 402 people for a short sword, 804 for a long sword, or 1608 for a great sword. Assuming that all weapons are made for a medium sized creature. Íf you use the iron from just one creature you could create a fine sized great sword and enchant it with the sizing ability so that you could increase it to medium size but that's kinda gay.

    A sword of rhetoric fashioned from the distilled incitements of a hundred prophets and politicians. It can only be seen when its wielder resorts to the use of ethos, pathos, or logos in order to achieve his ends. When visible, it looks like the most impressive sword any viewer could imagine. In reality, it conforms to the wielder's skills and technique as a debater or demogogue.

    The one common theme for the sword's many shapes is the presence of the quote, "This is mightier than any mere pen."

    Directly attacks social and/or mental stats. Can be used on individuals or on groups. Once per encounter, it can be used to turn spoken words into actual sword wounds.

    A sword named "The Blessing of Innocence". On it's blade is written in ever language since the dawn of time the name of the first and most ancient of all death gods. To read the name is to come instantly under the effect of Power Word: Death. It is, in fact, the blade of the forgotten god ancient's scythe with a hilt attached to it. The hilt must be replaced frequently as it will corrode at an unnaturally fast rate.

    It is a preferred weapon of barbarians or clerics of Kord that are illiterate. Legend says it was won when the first warrior challenged the death god to a duel for the greatest weapon any man could wield with his own immortal soul on the line.

    "The Foley of the Sylvan Fool" is an ugly thing to look upon. When the elves forged their first legendary weapons millennia ago, there was one smith who could never forge a perfect blade. He repeatedly created bent or imperfect long swords that no proud elf would dare use for fear of ridicule from his peers. However, one among them, the ugliest of them all, was blessed by the god Vulcan (Hephaestus) for though the blade was bent, twisted, and chipped it was forged by a youth who put his entire heart and soul into it and created from the only supply of the metal Orichalcum ever to exist on the material plane. Vulcan, known for his love of metal and distrust of beauty, imbued the sword with powers far greater than it's form would expect. The curved blade warps the very air it cuts through, deforming anything it strikes while being a quick and effective weapon. Vulcan decreed that only an elf would ever be allowed to wield the hideous weapon, but in a twist or irony no elf has ever deigned low enough to wield the Foley.

    In the setting I've been working on, there are three god artifacts.

    All three were made from shards of the core of the first world. Which, when destroyed, fell into the infinite void at the center of the universe. They were later retrieved by the three transient Gods.

    First is the God-Pendant, which represents the ultimate power of progress, its owner can see the memories of every being that has ever touched it, and can see the history of all that is trapped within the void. They can conjure those memories into a physical manifestation or channel it into themselves as well.

    Second is the Godshield, an object that cannot be penetrated by any force in the universe, not even by the powers of the Gods. It casts any force directed towards it toward the source tenfold.

    Finally, the Godblade is the most powerful weapon in the universe. It is the only one whose shape can be changed by it's wielder. It takes the form of the weapon most ideal for its owner. It also wields the power of every element in the universe with every strike.

    The thing about alkali metals is that not only do they react with water to form a strong base, but they also liberate hydrogen gas as a side product. Hydrogen is quite flammable. The reaction between alkali metals and water is highly exothermic. You will definitely get a pretty respectable pop out of an alkali-metal-tipped arrowhead.

    The Gauntlets of Vulcan

    Legend has it that in ages past, a great fire mage swore an oath to a demon by plunging his own hands into an active caldera. The liquid metal hardened around his arms and through these bonds the fire mage was able to channel the hellish flames of the demon. When the mage finally died at the hands of some brave adventurers desperate to stay the destruction he wrought upon the land, they removed the metal from his body, only to find cauterized stumps where his arms should have been. They had been completely incinerated the day of the ritual, and it was only by the mage's chaotic will to burn everything in the name of his master that they remained fixed to his limbs.

    In an Exalted game, one of the players found a bound Second Circle craft demon. He wanted a four-dot bow that never misses.

    The bow was made of orichalcum, the blood of an untattooed lunar during the waxing crescent moon phase, the red string connecting two lovers (who had to die, naturally, but they don't know that yet), the last breath of a hunter's quarry, and the ribs of the Solar himself.

    The solar had to lie down and get his floating ribs removed (prompting many out-of-character jokes) on the spot, to be put in the bow. He spent ten minutes crafting a very careful set of directions to ensure only the ribs were taken, and that the bow would be made according to specification, without curses or flaws.

    What he forget to ask for was a delivery date. The expression on his face when the demon said to the recent surgery victim, "Your bow will be ready in a few years," was priceless.

    A halberd forged in the fires of hell, one of a set of six meant for the honor guard of a daemon prince.

    The halberd is forged not by adding ingredients, but by literally removing the elements of goodness, wholeness, light, and so on from a halberd-shaped space. You sharpen the blade by performing evil acts with it.

    Outside of hell, the blade is invisible under sunlight, as the purity of sunlight simply does not touch the blade. The blade is only visible in firelight. Sufficiently evil people can see the blade in all light, or in darkness, without difficulty.

    Naturally, that means the blade is invisible to good folks during daylight, but plainly visible to evil folks even in pitch blackness or fog.

    In game terms it allows a sorcerer to learn the arcana Create Door.

    A witch causes a couple's first born to be stillborn.

    The couple, not wanting to fuck with her, pays her off. She grinds up the fetus and mixes it into a dye, then makes a simple mountaineer's blanket which she gives to the couple.

    The next baby is born healthy, and grows up without learning of it's older brother.

    Upon graduating from whatever class training they received the parents give them the blanket.

    While sleeping under it, the character is protected from all hostile actions from any intelligent (or wild) creature. Only the DM knows any of this. To the PC it is only a blanket they're parents gave them.

In addition to the simple property of aiding in seeing that which is hidden (spot, search, ect.) if anyone is hired to eliminate the wearer and comes within striking distance, the eye glows as if on fire, telepathically warning the wearer they are about to be attacked, negating suprise. This can break through sleep spells, but not things like hold person.

    Scythe of Cowardice

    The shaft is made from the dood of a tree where a solider hid while fleeing from battle. The tree caught fire and burned, killing the soldier, so the shaft has a charred appearance and occasionally makes weeping, pleading sounds.

    The blade is made from a sword that, prior to enchantment sealing its properties in place, had only ever inflicted wounds on targets' backs.

    The two parts of the scythe hate each other with a fiery passion only unintelligent, empathic weapons bonded together can feel.

    The scythe inspires terror, and can make ranged attacks against anyone who succumbs to its fear effect.

    'till death do us part' is a blade made out of what appears to be human bone. normally it exists as a pomel, which is a skeletal forearm and hand with a ring upon it. to draw the sword is it gripped by the hand and pulled up from the ground, and a blade of bone comes out with it. The blade can only be used by those who who have lost thier loves. the stronger the love between the partners was, the keener the sword. sometimes the user seem preternaturally skilled at combat, almost as if there was someone else helping them.
    [probably shitty fluff, ignore if you want]
    The story of this blade is long and sad and revolves around an unamed couple from a small farming village. legend has it the village was attacked by a conquering warlord during a wedding feast, and the bridegroom slain. the villagers barely had time to bury thier dead before fleeing. the bride was filled with grief and swore revenge as she left her dead husband and homeland. Years later she returned when the attacks in the region had stopped. In the ruins of village she searched for the grave of her husband. finding a skeletal arm with her husbands ring on it she pulled it out of the ground to try and give him a proper burial and was suprised when instead a sword of bone appeared. filled with icy resolve she knew what she must do. travelling to the castle where the warlod Ulric Thalbane ruled over his small kingdom, she slew the warlord and several of his men. she then returned to the village to lay her husband to rest properly. Unfortunately she had a bounty upon her head for her deeds and was slain.

    The Weapon begins as a stone. Hard, heavy, but not too unwieldy. Perfect for cracking skulls. And that's exactly what the caveman does with it, and later his children, and his children's children.
    After several generations, a new technology emerges: the biface, a crude blade that can be held cupped in one hand. The stone is fashioned into one, and its edge continues to draw blood for many, many years.
    A particularly crafty individual discovers what we call leverage, and what better head to use for the first ax than the Weapon of his ancestors?
    In the white-hot union of fire and ore, bronze is discovered, and it is at this point that the ancient stone becomes obsolete. But the handle of the ax is turned into that of a knife, and the essence of the Weapon remains, now killing not by smashing or hacking, but by slicing and stabbing.
    When its handle is replaced by the shaft of an infantry spear, the Weapon encounters a new phenomenon: war. Up until now, it has served in murder, single combat and the occasional skirmish between feuding clans, but this is different. Formations of trained soldiers clash, organized bloodshed of unimagined scale, and the Weapon is right in the middle of it.
    Iron is the metal that kills stars. When the spear's bronze tip is replaced by an iron one, its aptitude for killing is once again increased dramatically.
    The sword is said to have no practical use out of combat, making it the perfect shape for the Weapon. There are countless varieties of it, and the Weapon has been them all. Whether made of iron or the more sophisticated steel, whether in the form of a longsword, saber or rapier, the Weapon moves from owner to owner, periodically being reforged and leaving bloodshed in its wake. It has participated in millennia of killing, and its owners always end up using it for its original purpose.

    [Has the effect of the Dirgesinger's Song of Sorrow, and continues playing for as long as the user makes a weapon attack every round. On a successful perform check, the song is instead a Song of Grief.]

    The lute was owned by a mute and illiterate bard who spent his whole life building it. Eternally locked inside his own head, the only way he could communicate with the world was through music, but no one ever understood his intent. He created the instrument from the vocal cords of people who had the ability to speak, but never said anything worthwhile. He was caught just after finishing his life's work, and as he was hanged he sang his first and last song.

    That's one story, anyway. But some disagree. They say...

    The lute was an ordinary one, owned by an ordinary bard who was extraordinarily love-struck. His love scorned him, and when he swore to do anything to win her love, she sent him on a fool's errand. She asked him to travel far to the north and pluck a pear from a tree growing on the highest mountain. He reached the mountain, but there was no tree. He sang one final song as the cold claimed his life, and the tune was frozen into the instrument for all time.

    But that's just another story. Some tell you that it really happened like this...

    A great wizard wished to make the perfect instrument, so he advertised a singing competition with "immortality" as the reward. Singers came from across the land and competed for days, eliminated one by one until only the greatest singer in all the world remained.
    "So," the wizard said, "You are the greatest singer in all the world. Then you shall form the final string! That shall be your immortality!"
    The wizard snapped his fingers and the singer felt his breath being pulled from his body. As he suffocated, he saw it wound into a cord and bound to a lute. He begin to sing, though he had no voice, and the string that had been his began to resonate. Every string on the lute (the voices of other singers in the competition) hummed in harmony, and as the singer faded from the world the instrument began its dirge. The wizard, seeing the horror of his actions, threw himself from his own tower.

    But that, again, is just another story.

    "The Ender of Small Tyrannies", an axe made of pure distilled anger.

    This isn't directionless fury though, or rabid psychotic rage. This axe uses the anger from every voice that screamed against the oncoming night. From every person who raged against apathy; against basic; everyday evil that tarnishes the soul of everyone who experiences it. From every man who died furious at how unfair the universe is.

One of the combatants plunges their dagger into the heart of the other, the stream of blood and steam as it exits the wound freezes into a longblade.

    I always liked the idea of having a smith modify a sword so you could insert a single thunder stone into the tip. When you strike anything, it'll set off the stone and make a loud bang. Scare the shit out of the opponent. You could wear ear muffs or maybe take reduced damage because you know its coming.

    A legendary dragonslayer of ages past once commissioned the creation of artifacts out of each of his kills. The full list is lost, but among others, the full set was known to contain a dragon tooth crown and necklace, greaves of dragonbone, scale armor and shield, a tabbard and cloak out of dragon wing, two dragon eyes set in rings, and a sword who's blade was made of pure dragonfire.
    For an unknown reason, his hatered an loathing of dragons was so large, he hunted all dragons, good, evil, those that hid, or those that terrorized the country side. A curse was laid upon the slayer, by a dragon god, or mage, it is unknown, but it was powerful none the less. When all the artifacts were donned, they permenantly transformed the bearer into a dragon. The slayer was so distraught by this that he killed himself, when it happened, doing what no draconian had yet been able to do.
    That is distant history, however, and what was once a tool of vengeance and punishment is sought as a tool of life and potential immortality.
    The collective artifacts are known most commonly as the 'Dragon's Clothes'.

    Dissident: A strange sword, haphazardly made of scraps of junk metal. It is somehow more stable and balanced than it looks, and has an edge thinner than a razorblade.

    A slightly over-sized adamantine warhammer covered with engravings of locks, said to destroy any barrier in its path.
    It is called "The Dwarven Key"

    That sword was forever known as 'What now, Bitch'.

    A Vorpal Kukri called the Testicleaver.

    The Stilling Blade
    This blade is a rather hefty oddity. It is large, cumbersome, and only barely able to be held in a single hand. However, as you enter melee range with an opponent, it's use becomes apparent. No thought need be used, and no energy need be lost to parry, riposte, or disarm your foe. While wielding the Stilling Blade, their weapon will be just as slow to move as it is. That is to say : Not at all.

    The Deadfall Shield
    This shield seems to be made from a boulder, it is round and brown, and fairly large all around. When a hand is in the strap on it's back, it is quite easy to move and functions as a regular shield.. however. When there is no hand holding the handle, it becomes as heavy as a real boulder. As such, it's wielder's often follow it's name by learning to position it over their opponent's heads.

    This strange pair have been wielded together since time immemorial, although their natures suggest they were forged separately.
    The shield is large and strange, its edge sharp and its face made up of many concentric rings, all edged with teeth. In battle, it takes in the wielders rage, and turns it into rotation, the teeth creating a whirring grinding circle of death, capable of tearing weapons from hands, limbs from bodies and life from foes.
    The sword is almost the opposite of its friend, long, thin and almost blunt, its edge dull and notched. When attacking, the most it can do is a mild bludgeon, leaving a painful sting. Its true strength is in the parry and the riposte, and there, it is unmatched.

    The Watching Stone had stood there as long as any could remember, and obelisk of grey with white lines striking through its otherwise boring facade. But that wasn't the focus of the event- at least, not yet.
    The fight was fierce, with rain pouring down and lightning cracking the sky. His opponents axe swung down, splintering the weapon in his hands like tinderwood, pushing him back and back, towards The Watching Stone. Perhaps something saw him.
    Lighting cracked down from the sky, a bolt of incandescent blue energy striking the stone, and stunning all those around. Slowly, almost ceremoniously, the stone fell in two. Within, huge and terrible, a spear of brilliant steel shone, standing straight and tall, still crackling with the lightning that had freed it from its entrapment. On its head, ancient and unknowable scrip told tales no living man could ever read, and the ornate engraving on its haft described beasts and land long fallen to dust. It has been waiting, and watching, oh so long, waiting for a hero worthy of wielding it. Now, it has chosen You.

    The Sword of Storms
    Forged from iron mined from the bottom of the sea with ancient magic, melted by called lightning and forged by the hammer of a mountain, cooled in the waves of a Tsunami. The blade is a mix of different hues of blue, all flowing together. When it moves, it sounds like water, whether a stream, rain or wave. When it strikes, it sounds like a thunderclap. When it kills, the very air rises up in a dark mix of celebration and mourning. It flows around any defence, and those it hits are struck with the force of a tidal wave and the power of a lightning bolt, their ears torn to shreds with peals of hideous thunder. If the user dies, then a watery grave awaits them, as the very ground sunders and the deep earth attempts to recall the sword to it- but, as yet, has proved unsuccessful. What entity waits deep beneath for the return of their blade remains to be seen...

    The Well Used Sword
    Once, it was just a sword. Just a simple tool, made of metal and leather, designed and intended for a single purpose- ending human lives.
    And it was put to that use. Again, and again, and again. It changed hands as one owner fell, and another rose holding it, changed nations as one army overran another, and one king replaced the next. And still, it did its duty. Not once was it taken home, to wait, dormant, by the fire, or rest in an armoury. For century after century, this sword of war, within days of the last battle, found itself in the heart of another living soul.
    So much war, so much battle, so much blood. The blade changed. A simple sword became... well, still a sword, but more deserving of the title Sword. More than just a tool for ending lives, it came to embody that very purpose. In a man's hand, it had no shining glow or magical fire. It simply gave him the only too he would ever need to fulfil its purpose- to end lives.
    No matter how mighty the warrior or wise the wizard, great the leader or brave the hero, this sword would find their flesh, and cleave into it, and they would die. Because it is a Sword, and all it knows is its purpose. And its purpose, is to Kill.

    One day, a cave man finds a piece of oak lying on the ground. He picks it up, admiring its iron-hard toughness. This caveman puts the branch to good

    use, and his clan prospers. Soon the clan grows in prominence, the cave-man as its leader. Several generations down the line, the club has become the

    symbol of power for the clan. Strapped with the teeth of their fallen prey, its imposing image strikes fear into all who would oppose them.
    Thousands of years pass. This terrifying weapon gets passed from generation to generation. During the bronze age, the club gets a head, carved from

    bronze and in the image of a ferocious mouth, signifying the teeth of all those that have been embedded in its terrifying length. It is never

    mentioned in the history books, but wherever there is genocide, the club is not far behind.
    The iron age comes, and swords become the weapon of choice. The club is forgotten, stolen by some savage barbarians, and out of the public eye for

    millenia. Warfare becomes civilized, heavily armored troops form ranks with which to better defend themselves. However, the club does not sleep. One

    day, a horde of barbarians numbering over ten thousand appears on a battlefield. Both sides watch in amusement as these semi-naked men wielding

    nothing more than a club and an animal skin yell their rage at the better armed an armored combatants.
    One man walks in front of the crowd, holding a savage looking spiked club. He holds it up for all to see. With a savage yell, he directs the men

    "Kill!", to which they begin to surge forward. But as the club comes down, they are no longer men. Hideous, brutal teeth fill their mouths, as their

    jaws distend to open large enough to bite a mans head. They become more animal than human, as they surge down on the well-trained, well-armored feast below them.

    A short spear, slightly longer than a man's leg, so old that the 'wooden' shaft is petrified and stone-solid, though the ancient blessing worked into it prevents it from being broken. It is often found with superficial decorations on it far less old than the weapon itself, which may be one of the first mortal-made magic items. If it's millenia-old activation word can be rediscovered, the spear's power awakens, warding away demons and attracting environment-appropriate game animals for hundreds of miles around over the period of months and years, a subtle migration that could effect the entire world.
    Even before this, the carrier may occasionally be struck with the odd urge to hunt for his own food, even if they have never done so before in their life.

    The Hornets Sting is a blade worthy of mention. A cold greatspear, its head a dull shade of red, like dried blood, and its haft somewhat thinner than usual, although no less strong. It is said to have been taken in the primordial times of the world from a great and terrible beast, forged into a weapon in payment for some great task. Now, all are forgotten- beast and slayer, forger and wielder. Now all which remains is the blade. Passed down from warrior to warrior, death of one allowing it to fall into the hands of another. Its powers are vague, described in many different tales in many different ways and, perhaps, unique to each wielder. Or perhaps exaggerated by an overly imaginative bard. Whoever tells the tale, however, the blade finds itself a wielder worthy of its legacy. And, the tales of its most recent champion are fascinating indeed...

    A morphing weapon that may eventually become impossibly large and powerful according to the amount and focus of the weilder's RAGE.
    Normal form is that of a small crushing weapon in low-tech, or something like a magnum in mid/high-tech.
    The weapon will revert to this form once all rage is gone or character loses all focus.
    Note: the weapon's greatest weakness is that, it may be destroyed/defeated/avoided by a level headed enemy. Low-tech, a very calm man of strong will may shatter the huge club coming at him by sheer force of will and calm. Higher-tech, the weapon becomes easier to predict.
    Note: the user is never hindered by the weapon, no matter the size or actual/apparent mass.
    Note: this weapon is FUELED BY RAGE< and as such will calm the user sa it is used. It has the ability of ALLOFMYRAGE, which will produce a literally impossible attack with literally impossible effects of varying degrees of improbability; immediatly after the attack, the user will be drained, and the weapon will revert.

    This is, indeed, supposed to be the RAGE equivalent of SPIRAL ENERGY.

    >An ancient liche's bones, fused onto a gruesome set of plate mail.
    Better yet, do a Kel'Thuzad and have it be a pact with a (un)living lich, who agreed to become the armor of his would-be slayer.
    The upside for the wearer is the lich can still cast, and is a living history of methods of death and destruction.
    The upside for the lich is that the soul of the wearer will be his if they die while he is on them, and that said travels will continue to empower the lich.
    The phylactery is stored in a compartment in the helm, but if one wants to make a pact with the lich, they undergo a ritual which causes it to be infused into the wearer's heart, granting the lich greater strength to do his voodoo.
    The lich armor may animate itself as a ghostly warrior, though this is expensive energy wise, or upon the body of a skeleton.
    The lich is normally only able to communicate with the wearer psychically, or anyone else who wears the helm, but may focus it's thoughts and will upon others, or even dominate the wearer itself, using the energy of the wearers body to create a stable energy loop of control; this is what normally happens when the user makes the phylactery-pact.

    Blood is it's usual fuel, but it consumes it at the same rate as gasoline, and in this case it gets whatever mileage the DM decides it gets.
    Flesh chunks small enough to fit into the fuel tank opening act as NITRO.
    Capturing a demon and using it as a source of infinite blood acts the same as leaded fuel, causing occasional engine problems, building up to a complete engine clog/failure.
    Doing the same with an angel or other celestial being purifies the engine while producing an impossible boost of speed, turning it to normal, before subsequently clogging it.

    as I am trained as an auto-mechanic I should say that early engines needed leaded gas and were designed to run on it, it was used to prevent engine knock before the current series of lead free additives was produced.

    The blade of the dreaded Demon Lord Cordyceps.
    Originally a minor nature spirit, a dark ritual in which a sorcerer bound and sacrificed him to the beings of hell for a few reagents of rare quality, this nature spirit became corrupt in servitude to his hellish masters, and eventually learned to absorb unto himself the dark properties of hell's flora, leading to his eventual rise to power.
    The blade is a manifestation of his will to dominate, corrupt, and destroy.
    The sorcerer's tower can be found now, as a place of death and brimstone, as strange and horrible fungi and moulds bring death and disease to all who are exposed.

Owns many hats which allow one to temporarily take various roles. Socks can be put over fists to increase punching power. Pants cause others to see the wearer as a figure of authority. Tie can transform into constricting ropes. Boots allow magical ejection from a building. Etc. etc. Sort of like some kind of superhero. Probably a gnome. Pic only a little related.

    This is a weapon I wanted to make that ended up ending the game we were playing.

    We found a scroll written in whatever the hell language out of the Book of Vile Darkness is. Hurt you to read it, etc. And we took this scroll to an alchemist in town because we didn't know what it was. He did a lot of things trying to decipher it and make it less dangerous, and one of those things ended up transferring the words directly onto a sheet of glass.

    It ended up being a prophecy of the end times of that world that if delivered to the wrong people would end the world and given to the right people would save it. I knew who the right people were and who the wrong people were, the problem was, the right people were dicks. So I thought fuck it, I'll just destroy this shit.

    I quickly found out that the glass was indestructible, and in the process, the glass found some blood being spilled on it. The letters started glowing red with power and it didn't fade after the blood went away.

    So, here I have an indestructible sheet of paper sized piece of glass, with glowing evil runes on it, and I'm being hunted by two huge organizations.

    I decided that the best way to handle it was to go back where we found the scroll, and get a branch off the most corrupted tree i could find and make an axe out of the glass.

    The DM ended the game before I could murder with the very essence of the apocalypse.

    The Black Book of Secrets
    Mindrapes the reader, even if they only have a parting glance at the pages.
    Usually used as a weapon once an encounter, as the player shouts 'Look at this!' and hold the book open in front of her.
    May also corrupt angels or other celestial beings.
    Will normally cause demonic creatures become aroused and go on a raping rampage.
    Has mixed results of demon-possessed humans.

    The Little Black Book of Secrets
    Usable as the perfect blackmail material, as the user may request of this item to show them the secrets of any person they know the name of.
    Does not reveal anything that is not considered a secret by the target person/entity, so a completely brazen or innocent being is largely immune to it's effects.
    If you only know the nickname or otherwise false name of the target entity, it will only reveal partial secrets, usually taking on the appearance of a classified document that has been mostly or partially blacked out.
    This item also shows images, which may be censored according to the above condition.

Whenever you begin to battle screeching sounds of some unholy beast fill the quiet void provided by the earmuffs which invigorate you, compelling you to feats of martial prowess you did not have before.

    From the Book of Vile Darkness:

    Angelwing Razor: This long, thin blade is not made from angels’ wings; rather, it was honed on them—on the wings of dead and captive celestials. This hideous process, conducted by the elf warlord Urgatil before going into battle against the gold dragon armies, sharpened the blade to an impossibly fine edge. Angelwing Razor is a +5 vorpal longsword that ignores damage reduction and hardness of any kind. It can even cut through a wall of force or similar effect.

    The following is partly NSFW due to textual content.

    Despoiler of Flesh: This short staff is made of human
    tongues sewn together end to end. These tongues are slightly animated, so the staff occasionally bends and curls of its own volition. Despoiler of Flesh has been in the possession of a particularly twisted and powerful nalfeshnee named Tapheon that lives in a place called the Fortress of Indifference. It has also been in the hands of a mortal despot named Multheasan, a human in love with his two daughters. Rather than force himself upon them, he used the Despoiler of Flesh to reshape captives and slaves into the likenesses of his daughters so that he might have his way with them instead.
    >> Abdul Alhazred, the Mad Arab !Jagyd/33aU 11/15/10(Mon)17:36 No.12810176
    The artifact allows the wielder to reshape the flesh of any creature, as with a polymorph other spell except that any shape that the wielder can imagine can be bestowed, whether a creature actually exists in that form or not. If a form is bestowed that is unwieldy or untenable, or that was created without careful forethought, the creature simply dies. For example, the wielder could change the form of a wolf into that of a human known to him. He could then (using the Despoiler of Flesh again) give that human purplish
    black skin and tentacles for arms. If he attempted to also give the victim six spider legs and batlike wings large enough to carry him aloft, the form would simply collapse under its own weight into a pile of fleshy goo.
    Victims may resist the effect of the artifact with a Fortitude save (DC 25). The wielder can make one change per round, with a victim getting a save to resist each change.

    Turning a creature into an existing kind of creature (as
    described in the polymorph other spell) counts as one
    change. Systematically adding or removing body parts
    counts as one change per addition or removal, unless multiple identical changes are made (such as removing both of an ogre’s hands or turning all of a dragon’s teeth into short, stubby toes).

    Item: Utility hammer (claw or ball-peen hammer)
    Appearance: a larger-than average utility hammer, like one that would be found in a craftman's workshop. No astounding features adorn this hammer, though it is found in a baggy silk pouch colored yellow and black, adorned with gold edging.
    Ability: STOP!
    When the target is hit with Hammertime, the target may be temporally frozen for 1d10 turns.

    Appearance: (if scythe, metallic with clock adorning the end of the handle) A sword in the form of a clock hand. (i.e. Nox's blade from Wakfu)
    Ability: Split Second
    Temporally displace your attacks by striking a few moments before your foe reaches you, only for a sudden glowing blade to arrive a second later to catch in him unawares.

    Item: Shield
    Description: An enormous clock face in the style of a grandfather clock, with it's working gears sticking out of an opening along the equator. There is a large-ish hole in the front for Grandfather's winding key. Said key also hooks in the back to normally act as the shield's main handle.
    Ability: Tick-Tock
    When activated, Grandfather will cause time to slow for everyone and everything in it's field of effect. This does not effect the ability to think, but the trick lies in having more time to plan in battle, as well as having finer motor control as you are able to observe your own reactions.
    Ability: Overwound
    After spending a few turns turning Grandfather's key, Grandfather will forcibly self-destruct in a display of deadly shrapnel of gears and fine metal and glass shards; with the unpredictable side affect of a randomly generated field of temporal distortion.

    >Dissident: A strange sword, haphazardly made of scraps of junk metal. It is somehow more stable and balanced than it looks, and has an edge thinner than a razorblade.
    To expand on this idea:
    "Don't be fooled, it may look like a heap of junk, but you'll never find a better blade in the mortal world.
    Long ago, in some long-forgotten fiefdom beset by foes, the greatest blacksmith of the land was ordered to churn out weapons by the dozens and the hundreds to arm the defending troops. As the war raged on, he perfected his skills, until at last, as it drew to a close, and defeat drew ever nearer, he reached the pinnacle of mortal craft, and passed it, and kept going. Whatever it was that happened, it drove him into some blessed madness, in which he worked nonstop, stopping only to eat and drink and sleep the bare minimum required for survival. Each weapon he produced thereafter was greater than the last. And it was said that each one singlehandedly delayed the opposing army a week longer on its march towards victory."
    >> Anonymous 11/15/10(Mon)17:49 No.12810267
    "When iron ore and coal ran out, and the other blacksmiths ceased production and waited for death, he toiled on, forging weapons seemingly from nothing, that looked merely like bits of junk cobbled together, but cut down their foes better than any mortal blade could ever hope to. This blade was his last completed work, and the finest of them all. It was said that he had just completed this blade as the opposing army broke down the walls and marched into the city, and was just laying down the plans for the next as soldiers broke into his workshop. This nameless blacksmith, despite never having received military training, was said to have cut a swath through the soldiers, raging at his work being disrupted. As to what happened next, the accounts vary. Some say he was eventually cut down, but that it cost the invading army an entire platoon to kill him. Others claim that as he fought, his wounds poured forth fire, until he was sublimed into a column of fire and vanished, leaving behind not even ashes.
    In any case, no living soul ever saw him again, but the blade -- this thing -- was left behind as a testament to a man who reached beyond the realm of mortals and into that of gods."

    Had the idea of a savage feral race of albino humanoids in the northlands, faces contorted in such a way as to appear rather ghoulish - like a Tzimisce vampire. They'd take the usual motifs you expect of the noble savage and take out the noble part of it. Bones, hide, fur, flesh predominating in their weaponry and equipment, especially bone.

    That's not really unique but I liked the idea of some cannibalistic savage fucker with lamellar/scale bone armor, some Yeti-thing's skull as a helmet, with flayed human hide for a buff leather coat.

    In the feywild, a necromancer had finally been caught for his heinous crimes, and although deserving, he was not slain outright. Tortured for twelve days without food, water or rest, the necromancer was kept alive through it all with the aid of healing magics. At the very end of it all, with a sack over his head, he was lead to a swamp. Forcing his head under the murky, insect-egg laden, slimy sluice, he was raised for a breath every minute, with the promise of freedom if he could last an hour. Through sheer force of twisted will, the necromancer survived an hour of the horrible drowning, though his captor was infuriated. In a fit of rage, the captor drove his longsword through the back of the necromancer's head, pinning him to that putrid bank. Centuries past, and the tortured, crazed soul came to inhabit the blade, though all it could recall was it's final end.

    The sword speaks as if one is quite sick, as if one is speaking with a lungful of mucus and expectoration. The blade is dripping a sickly-sweet smelling putre'. The sword only seeks to infect those it strikes, and nothing more.

    Will infect a large water/food supply if left submersed/buried for an evening.
    Upon first strike will deal an extra 12 damage, and will continuously deliver 5 damage each round, with a difficult Con save. Leads to actual, non magical infections.
    If left in the same place, will turn an area the size of a farm into a bog/marsh in two years time.
