Virilneus’ GS4 Idea Book

An enruned gnomish lens

I often wish I could figure out exactly how many charges a magical item has remaining. I do not want to merely know an estimate, I want to know exactly.

What better idea for a simple but useful auction item that a tool that can do just that? Give actual numeric charge data.

Short post, simple idea.

Aspect Armor

I would like to see fancy customized armors that individually provide permanent bonuses like the ranger spell Assume Aspect. So you would have a yak themed armor make with yak hide with maybe some funny yak scripts that’d give the wearer a permanent bonus like they were in yak form with the spell.

 Now sure, 650 is a high level spell, but in the end it really is just provides enhancive abilities, which already are released as auction items, so this isn’t really stealing anything functionally belonging to rangers, this is just copying their RP themes for the different enhancements. I can understand people who want to protection their profession, but I’m not one of them and I don’t agree with them. If an idea is neat, I do not care if it uses aspects of a professions high level spells, even sorcery spells. Make items that mimic my high level spells, I care not.

 Anyways, I would make 1 set for each AG/Aspect combination, giving you many different items all built off the same template, hopefully making it easier on the GMs. Or you could make them morphing between different AGs and just make 1 set per aspect.  For balance issues I’d make them 5x and unable to be further enchanted or something, so wearers have to forgo high enchants and padding to get the benefits.

I was also thinking, what if, if worn in the same group, these armors bonuses got added together. So you would get the bonus from the armor you were wearing, and half the bonus from any other armors worn in your group.

Animate Dead Jar

Virilneus shows you his enruned glass jar.

Inside the glass jar you see a miniature animated Ithzir seer pacing restlessly.

Basically I envision a magical jar that can be waved at an animate and, like a genie into a bottle, suck them in for storage. While in the jar the duration would stop. The addition of gems to the jar would be able to increase the overall remaining duration. Also if you rubbed the jar the animate inside would be healed, borrowing that functionality from the Animate Dead auction wands already out there.

To release the animate you simply dump the jar out, the animate falls to the ground and instantly grows back to normal size.

Fire Spirit Modifying Bracers

Filed under: Auction Item Ideas — Virilneus @ 10:19 am

I would like to see auction items that when worn tweak a wearer’s fire spirit spell to be of a different elemental base. Have every other aspect of the spell remain the same, just change the elemental base. So ice spirit, water spirit, earth spirit, lightning spirit.

This type of auction item doesn’t overall increase the power of the spell, just the flexibility, and it would give the wearer a relative unique ability.

If you wanted to be fancier you could do something where if multiple of the bracers are used in the same group their powers increase, but I think just changing the elemental base of the spell would be enough to make them highly desirable.

 You could also obviously theme their design based on metals, gems, and other materials with inherent elemental properties.
