This reminds me that I think there was some sort of rumor in my group's setting that halfling blood has a silencing effect, especially when used on door hinges.

So an idea I had today was borne of scanning through the spell list for a Pathfinder Cleric. The spell Enemy's Heart would make a great enchantment to put on a dagger, and I thought of making a mission objective for a quest out if it.

I figured I'd make a +1 dagger with 3/day uses of Enemy's Heart, and the PC has a mission to assassinate a target using the dagger.

This got me thinking of other items that could be turned into objects which a PC must use to complete a quest. What things do you guys reckon would make good quest items, not as a McGuffin to find, but as a tool to use to accomplish your objective? I'm really struggling to figure out stuff to use that's not a weapon or a weapon analogue, such as a wand.

In the final quest of the Thieves Guild line in Oblivion, you have to bring an arrow with a key as its head that you have to shoot into a lock from across the room. The same quest also has you use magical jumping boots to survive a long fall.

And if you're looking for items to use as tools for a quest, why not actual tools and trinkets? A silent hammer. A bottle of special perfume to Charm a guard. A belt with a coded message written on it. A gnomish recording phonograph to eavesdrop a confession. A pair of goggles so dark that they make you blind to everything but a monster that otherwise shines like the sun.

A Hand of Glory, in any form of the myth, would be useful for a sneak (whether it turns you invisible, shines a light only you can see, entrances anyone but you looking at it, or whatever).

I still like that idea I saw one time of a sword that causes emotional wounds.


Want a quest item? How about an important person is inflicted with an ailment that can be cured with a chunk of mellifed man? I suppose that's a bit McGuffin-y though...

Dimensional needle and thread? Use it to stitch reality rifts back together.

Pathfinder has a spell for that, sort of. Enchant your gimp suit with the Sadomasochism spell.

This is a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild tabletop game. I have not read much of the manual, but what I have seems interesting.

Interesting indeed. I have a pdf that contains 5th Edition versions of Hylian races, but a proper LoZ tabletop game could be very cool.

Yeah, I've been looking over the core book. It looks rather nice, especially for a fan project, and the mechanics don't look half bad either.

We've been running Fire Emblem games on this very forum for years and Nintendo hasn't come knocking. Yet.

* Sirus knocks on wood

I think as long as it stays relatively quiet it should be okay. Besides, it'd be relatively easy to convert the system to a more generic setting if worst came to worst.

That is quite clever. However, it takes a second spell slot, and takes up your action to move 30 feet, so the spell Fly is all-around superior.

Actually, a warlock with an imp, or pseudodragon, familiar can have the familiar carry up to 30 feet of stuff, so he can just carry a full-size gnome at all times, or nine Reduced gnomes, and without an action.

All of this, however, does not work if you actually have the gnome's equipment count, unless the gnome has bare-bones equipment.

Doesn't the arcane trickster get a special mage hand though? That could work...

Wait, can tricksters even cast reduce? That does sound like something they should have access to, honestly.
