Fun D&D Item ideas:
The Stick of Sturdidity: A totally impervious metalic 2 foot long rod. cant be damaged or transmuted in any way shape or form. No other special effects, magical or otherwise. Literally just a completely indestructible stick.
The Masked Mask: A Mysterious mask that, when worn, is impossible for other people to see. When worn, the wearer appears, instead, exactly as they were before the mask was equipped. When not equipped, the mask appears as a rather ostentatious fancy feathered and jeweled masquerade mask.
The Forget-Me-Knot: A necklace with a round stone pendant. when not directly addressing this amulet, it is immediately forgotten about. The wearer is not exempt from this effect.
The Staff of Substitution: This staff, emblazened with the sigil of Gordon the Cowardly, when activated, switches your position with a randomly selected person from literally anywhere in your current plane, the person can be anyone, from a king, to a peasant, another adventurer, an angry giant or even a child. It can be reactivated to switch the positions back, but will automatically reverse the switch after a time limit of 1 hour.
The Pen of Poor Reception: This magical pen is able to write in such a way as only yourself and one other intended recipient can read whatever is written. However, anyone else who reads from it, will instead read it as a very personal and needlessly vulgar series of mean insults, inflamitory comments and generally very unpleasant commentary.
The Timepiece of Reflection and Introspection: Appearing as a a jeweled pocket watch with mirror like polished metal, engraved with with images of hourglasses and the sun, this magical item accurately tells the time through magical means. In addition, when broken, will cause time to freeze, everywhere, for everyone, for the equivalent of 3 hours. In this time, no one can move, no one can use magic, no one can take any action, however, characters will be allowed to think during this time. After the time runs out, time starts again as per normal exactly as it was.
The Hat of Convienient Bird Purchasing: This tall flat topped hat hasthe ability to transform gold, into birds. The more gold placed into the hat, the more interesting the resulting bird will be (refer to the list below). The resulting bird will not be under the control of the buyer, will likely be startled to be pulled from a hat, and will react as a bird would in that situation.
1-9g: A small wodden chicken
100g: A Bird of Prey (falcon, eagle, owl, etc)
500g: Cassowary, Emu, Ostritch
1000g: Medium or smaller dinosaur or monsterous bird.
2000g: A Large or larger dinosaur or monsterous bird.
10000g: Huitzil, Lord of all avian, Ruler of the 9 skies. The Bird King.
(Note: Specific birds can be summoned, but an appropriate amount of gold must still be given to the hat. If a bird you wish to summon is not on the list, pay an equivalent amount of gold as decided by your dm.)
Superior Boots: These tall red leather boots have no beneficial effects on the wearer, but any other creature who views the boots will know their own shoes to appear drab and boring in comparison. The individual will not necessarily be compelled to want the Superior boots, but may if they value style highly and desire your boots for themselves.
The Net of Hair: This Large (approx 20 square foot) net seems to be made of long hair from an unknown creature. when tied down to the ground, anything contained within is considered a to be in a seperate area to the world around it when regarding the area of effect on spells, auras or environmental effects. If the Net is damaged in any way, this effect dissapears in one round.
The Token of C’fung Mif: This Monolithically Magical token takes any shape it’s user desires, once a shape has been assumed, the user can regail the token with a legend, tale, story, prophecy or forboding ill omen, which the token will then create a visual representation for, to be played when it is next picked up by another individual.The Token, after sharing this vision, will then fill the new users mind with a task, a direction, or a general sense of urgency as decided by the original user. Once parameters set by the original user have been fufilled, the token will become inert until recollected. When the original user collects the token again, it resets to it’s original form.
