Day 27 – Favorite Curse or Cursed Item

I usually don’t do much with cursed items; most of them are designed to make a player’s life miserable by messing with her character and most players find that to be the opposite of fun. Still, in a game that doesn’t take itself seriously, some of the sillier items can be amusing, though most of them are problematic when looking back. I think the best items are ones that are not explicitly cursed, but come with drawbacks that seem like their cursed, like Evil Intelligent Talking Swords that try to force characters into heinous acts, or artifacts like the Hand of Vecna. The attached video is a good example of how such an artifact can act like a curse for an entire party, without being explicitly cursed… just replace “Vecna” with “Vectra” and if you’ve read Knights of the Dinner Table for years, you’ve already seen this story. 😀
