Day 28 — Favorite Cursed Item?
So many fun ones for a DM, like Armor of Arrow Attraction, Boots of Dancing, or Necklace of Strangulation, or anything that flips your alignment or switches your gender.
Cursed items can really shake up a campaign.
My most recent favorite was in the Enochia campaign and was the Crown of Koldwynt’r worn by the Lich King. It was, to be quite honest, slightly borrowed from Adventure Time.
The Crown conferred upon the wearer all manner of cold-related magical powers, you know— cone of cold, ice storm, wall of ice, and the like — but it did so by slowly robbing you of your body heat, until you became undead, a lich if you will, kept alive by the crown’s magic.
But it didn’t stop there.
The Crown of Koldwynt’r continues to be fueled by draining the heat from everything around it…
Yeah, that was a good one. I need to dust that beast off again and give it another run.
