Cursed items.This makes me want to DM again!
"My flying carpet is full of elves."
Cursed items.This makes me want to DM again! I have only ever seen cursed items used by antagonistic jerk DMs as a cheap way to screw their players. It will be interesting to see if WotC can reintroduce them to the game without encouraging that sort of asshattery. My guess is they can't, but I'm willing to be pleasantly surprised.
Wow I've been seeing this a ton lately from players- expressing that they feel cheated whenever a cursed item comes into play. I've decided to address it once and for all!Cursed items represents everything a well-designed Dungeons and Dragons campaign stands for: unpredictability, challenge, and risk and reward. I will state, it takes a rather well experienced DM to implement them well, so players don't view them as "asshattery". A complete campaign should never be a straight linear graph to greatness to level 30, characters should be able to endure frequent set-backs. You'll have players will express relief and satisfaction much more when they find actual uncursed magical items when there is the possibility of selecting the "bad eggs".Here's some tips you might find useful using them in your campaign.
"The wooden moss covered mask the rogue had unearthed in the Bertask's crypt seemed to be nothing but a god-sent gift from Avandra. Before the cautious paladin could intervene he curiously pressed it to his face. "Ripcoil no! You have no idea wha..." But before the paladin could finish Ripcoil pulled the last leather strap over his head- securing the mask in place. "Woahhhhhhh, this is incredible!" the rogue instantly expressed in excitement. The rest of the party huddled underneath the paladin's torch watched as the rogue pranced about in the absolute darkness. A faint green glow emitted from his eyes. "I can see everything!" he further exclaimed as he proceeded to sprint between the columns of the crypt, expertly dodging each in the pitch black darkness. Boris the paladin face-palmed in frustration.A few days later the party found themselves traveling along the old gate road in the dead of night. A full overcast blotted out the moonlight. Ahead the party perceived to hear the rumbling and shuffling of a small troop- the clanking of iron and feet not far up the road.. As they further approached, it began very clear -goblins. There were four enfeebled goblins led by a single skinny hobogoblin commander. "Well this will be simple..." Ripcoil proclaimed as he was already making a move to the bushes.
"ARGGhhhhhh!"Boris turned his eyesight from the goblin troop to Ripcoil, who had not yet made it to the edge of the foliage. Ripcoil held both his hands to the back of the newly acquired mask attempting to yank it off as he screamed in pain. In aura of green mist emitted from the old wooden mask as intense bursts of green light arched from the mask as the rogue attempted to free himself."My minddd Arrghhhhhhhh!! Helllllpp!" The screams gurgled to a halt as the rogue fell unconscious. "Cheers,White Wolfac
