I'm looking for interesting spells and items that allow for a lot of interesting creative applications and munchkinry (as opposed to just dealing damage or boosing stats).
Here's the list I've collected so far.
A sentient piece of rope. 50ft. As smart as a puppy. Obeys simple commands (coil, uncoil, tie a knot, crawl).
- Anti-Gravity Potion
Drinker isn't affected by gravity for an hour.
- Horseshoe of Attraction
Turns into a powerful magnet when activated. Strong enough to move a person wearing armor within 50 meters.
When spilled attracts all the cats within 100km radius.
- Ring of Crawlies
Allows you to control any single insect within your line of sight.
- Mini Lighthouse
Creates a small beam of light that can be seen for miles.
- Bottomless Mug
Can hold a swimmingpool-w**orth of any liquid.
A magical letter, will scream it’s contents once delivered.
- Alarm Pebble
A small rock, will alert the holder when anything comes within 15 meters of it.
- Unlabeled package
Mysterious package. When you unwrap it, you can declare what was contained inside. It can be anything, as long as it's no more valuable than a horse or a good sword. If you name something too valuable/powerful, the box returns the closest thing that fits into the value range (if you ask for a potion of immortality, it might return a health potion or a spell scroll).
- Ring of Tracking
The owner of the ring always knows it’s location.
- Silver Fly
Send it anywhere within 30 meters from you, see and hear through it's senses.
- Potion of Body Switching
When two people drink this potion, it swaps their minds freaky-f**riday style for 2 hours.
- Portable Direwolf
A small wooden figure of a direwolf. When activated, turns into the actual animal.
- Orb of Illusion
Records the environment around it, when placed on the ground plays back the illusion of the recording (like a hologram).
- Chalk of Doors
Draw a door on a solid surface, it will open to the last door you’ve stepped through.
- Snake Tube
Conjures one snake per day.
- Resizable Crate
Big wooden crate, when activated it shrinks itself and it’s contents down to the size of a coin. Can fit up to 2 people.
- Conman’s Paper
A sheet of paper that can be transformed to look like any official document.
Floats 30cm above the ground, frictionless, supports any weight.
Stores a friendly or defeated animal.
- Jacket of Useful Things
Can produce any small cheap mundane item from it’s pockets.
Allows you to glide through the air.
- Teleportation pyramids
2 small pyramids. Activating one pyramid teleports anyone who touches it to the location of the other pyramid.
- Can we please remove the wallhacks from bots?
- Rogue thinks outside the box
- Rebalancing Deckard’s Ruby
