Frodo McKraken's Most Useless Magical Items Shoppe

Postby Qray » Sat Feb 10, 2007 7:00 am

Wand of Bubbles. Nice at bath time, not so good against a Dragon.

Ring of Nostril Hair. It might come in handy if your adventuring party is short on rope.

Rope of Grease.

Tome of Lemon Juice - This magic book (empty, but can have spells enscribed into it) will give whoever opens it a paper cut every time they open it. No HP damage is taken, it's just really annoying.

Enfernal Spawn of Evil- A wooden figurine of a bunny rabbit, pretty useless but makes a great Christmas tree ornament despite the name.

Wand of Music Conducting - This wand causes the user to have his hair become quite messy, but the only way to get the magic to work properly is to wave it in wide, regular patterns, in the presence of a group of musicians. If done properly, it may help them to stick to the music script, so as to be able to create music that, if the style of written music is pleasing, will sound pleasant to the listener.

Shim of Knowledge - A tapered piece of cedar about an inch wide and twelve to sixteen inches long. Can be used to copy down important information on, but the most important piece of information will always seem to have disappeared from it's surface when you really need it. No matter how many times you swear you wrote it down.

Bulletin Board of Confusion- it looks like a regular bulletin board, but items pinned to it randomly vanish.

Fuzzy Bilbo's Pants of Pocket Lint - Anything put into the pockets of this fashionably sexy clothing item has a 1 in 4 chance of turning into pocket lint. Dispell magic, remove curse, ect. will restore the changed item back to normal.

There's a 50% chance that the pocket lint will magically stick to anyone's hand that is put in the pockets. Dispell magic, remove curse, ect. will allow the lint to fall off.

Ring of Dark Light: A classic silver ring that shines dark at night and makes you blind during the day.

Ring of Dork Light

A huge ring of pot metal and plastic that uses C batteries to power the glowing lavender glass globe that takes the place of a gemstone. The ring comes embossed with such statements as...

"Frodo Forever!"

"D&D Rules!"

"Tab, the soft drink of champions!"

"Mad Magazine rocks!"

...and more!

Ring of Duck Light

A flock of ducks, mysteriously racing around in a circle, generates enough energy that a nearby town is provided with light.

[b]Wand of Shrinkage - A magical wooden wand which can cause a magical piece of wood (a wand, rod or staff made of wood) to shrink as if it was a piece of flesh that is cold and wet. It will not effect the wand, rod or staff in how it works, other than making it more difficult to aim (since the item's now a bit more flexible, temporarily), and, of course, making it somewhat smaller. The effect will last for between 5 and 10 rounds, at which time, it will re-enlarge, and if in a place where it cannot re-enlarge, it will bend as it grows, so as to fit the available space. Note: will not effect wands, staves or rods that are not made of wood (example: a wand made of bone, metal or obsidian).
