It goes without saying that those damn Wizard Locked Chastity belts would be in high demand when the local lords went off to the Orc crusades.  So long as there were no other high level Wizards hanging around the Castle that is . . .  :D

Here's a spell from my own campaign setting, named after the Mordenkainen/Elminster/Gandalf of that world, Brynn.  (I've eliminated the spell stats.)



Brynn's Exalted Effervescent Refreshment



One of Brynn's earlier experiments, this spell is a vast improvement upon the conventional "create water".  When cast it produces several dark glass bottles filled with strong ale, up to six per level of the caster.  The bottles themselves vanish when the liquid is consumed or they are broken, but otherwise remain indefinitely.

Can't have your fantasy *too* realistic.



Imagine the scene in LotR when Sam & Frodo etc. first meet the Elves in the forest. Frodo: "Well Sam, what do you think to Elves?" Sam: "Well sir, I thought they were both jolly and sad, oh and the singing and dancing were wonderful, well right up to the point where I caught and Elven lady taking a dump between behind a tree that is!"



Gollum "Dammit you put the damn ring down to wipe your ass and nasty Bagginses runs off with it! Not fair is it precious, he should try living on a diet of curried fish and see what happens!"



Nobody on TV ever goes to the toilet. Ever. It's Spiderman I always felt sorry for...

My interest in buying the newer TSR modules waned when the game makers started decreasing the amount of descriptive BOXED TEXT used in the modules.  I know that some DMs hated boxed text (found it too constrictive or limiting somehow), and some players did too (found it too long-winded), but I liked it --a lot.



bonk!

Elves dont have to poop.  Since all they eat is fruits, nuts, and "elvish bread" there is very little waste product.  What there is of it is passed through their pores as a gas that has an intoxicating spice like smell.



And to keep with the topic of the thread, I also liked From the Shadows and Roots of Evil for the Ravenloft setting.  Really the only two adventures from that setting that I thought were really worthy of the name Ravenloft.

Deadlord36 wrote:BOWL OF CRAPPING:



Originally created by the Archmage Gotasheeut-Nao for adventuring convenience, the Bowl of Crapping is an extremely useful item for any party. It appears as a tiny basin, roughly 1" in diameter. When the command word is spoken, it expands into a chamberpot 2' wide and 2 1/2' high. A second command word causes it to shrink back to 1". Any nonliving organic material that enters the bowl is immediately teleported to the Asstral Plane, and causes the bowl to cast a Remove Stench 10' Radius spell. Attached to the side of the bowl is a wire rack, which can be used to conjure any issue of Dragon magazine (2/day, duration 15 rounds).

30% of bowls have a cushioned seat permanently enchanted with the 2nd level magic-user spell Heat Buttocks.



XP Value: 3,000

GP Value: Priceless




Frank I promise this will make an appearance in my latest campaign adventure.  These idiots in my group (my brothers mostly) are always having their characters take dumps in inappropriate places for cheap laughs.  Now it's my turn.  Perfect!

If you want to be really mean, make it an artifact, or a cursed item. Have them all covet it.

it could be cursed, to the point that when they sit on it, it adheres to their butt and stays there, giving them -4 "to hit" etc and +2 on AC :D

Assloads of fun.

I probably have 60 pages of items I have made up during my D&D career. Not a lot of foolish ones, though. But I will add the bowl.
