Tuesday Toot – G+ is
closing gone. When it was alive things happened. Things unexpected. Great things. Whilst my creative output is only modest, I thought I’d hold something up into the living light, something that came about purely because G+ existed … This is a toot to G+.
The Master’s Hoard is a compilation of quirk-some magic items which I posted on my G+ page over a period of weeks. The compilation of magic items can be downloaded for free here: Link
:: Amulet of Unseen Minions ::
The item can summon a weak force; or (only once) a mass of weak forces
Once per day – the item can summon an ‘unseen minion’.
The minion is in fact a ‘soft force’ that obeys the user’s will. When focused, the force can exert a force of up to about a pound. It can turn a door handle, lift a latch, knock over a vase. The force is not hard enough to do inflict HP damage directly. But, a knocked vase falling on someone’s head is another matter. The force only works in line of sight of the user.
Once, and only once – the item can summon 100 to 1000 minions. This action completely depletes the item of unseen minions, thereafter rendering the item useless.
This mass of minions could be used for example to:
• slow the passage of a foe through a corridor as a plethora of minions grasp at them;
• slow/break a deadly fall; minions grasping and pulling against gravity
• form a ‘human pyramid’ for the character to climb;
• combine together to generate enough force to nudge a heavy object, e.g. nudge a boulder down a ravine
