    while I very much appreciate your input, as is it seems very much similar to Chit Of Choking Smoke. would glob of flame not be considered more powerful since it has similar effect with a higher overall damage?

    As others have pointed out I was wrong about flame spit not being on any arcade item.

    Here's my current idea:

    Winged Mount
    level 11 uncommon Martial Skill (minortoken)
    Barbed Platemail, Flight Aura, Fumble
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Are my reasons obvious?

    Martial Skill because I consider mounts to be mainly a knight thing. It may still be more appropriate for Boots, but I really want to see a handicap martial skill usable on the low level quests.

    Barbed Platemail because your mount protects you and attacks anyone trying to hit you. I considered using Spiked Mail, but it sucks (and it would still cost (minortoken)). I could rename it Dragonrider to justify the card better.

    Fumble was the closest thing I could think of to an upkeep cost: every couple rounds your mount eats one of the cards in your hand, most likely one from this item.

    If I'd be you, I'd rather post something that has at least a tiny chance of winning; At the moment, none of these cards are on martial skills and a possibility to put two Barbed Platemails in one deck is just too powerful.

    IMHO more plausible cards for your winged mount would be Fly, Tough Hide and Bite, even though most of these are monster only cards.

    @Kalin: I like, but yeah, "Dragonrider" or "Dragonmaster" or something might be a clearer name. Pretty daring trying those cards in that slot! But Fumble is kind of a nasty one, especially with important armors involved. (Dropped Guard of course would be even worse, for whatever that's worth.) Yeah, Dragonrider sounds the very clearest so far.

    @j3st3ri: Fly is a player card as of AI.

    That was my thinking too, but j3st3ri still has a point: sometimes you'll get lucky and draw two Barbeds without fumbling one.

    Here's another idea:

    Gliding Garments
    level 14 uncommon Robe (minortoken)
    Flight Aura, Sparkling Cloth Armor, Hover

    Crusher on a weapon is a big no-no. Might I suggest replacing it with Bash? (you get an item with the same level and somewhat similar benefits)

    I see people get bolder, adding all kinds of explanations and linking explanatory content in their submissions.
    Seems to be fair game, given Stexe won last AA while providing the funny comic he based the item name on.

    except last AA was literally something that's supposed to be somewhat tied with Jim and Co. Not everyone browses Penny Arcade comics, so linking one sounded like a fair game.

    In making my own item (which I'm under no illusion is prime for winning, but we -were- asked what one item would we want if stranded on a desert island, and that was the best I could do within the CH confines while still being a remotely viable submission), the longest item name I counted in my quick search was some 28 chars long -- or if I don't recall that correctly, then I'm sure 27 chars for a few times. Yours is totally fine. (I could easily see "Why the rum?" being the short name, too.)

    I didn't click your "?" but I say funny movie reference anyway. $E^ J Especially since it's a clear allusion without any IP infringement issues! $:^ b
    (Answer: "Because it's more important to trash your (trash) stash for our rescue! Stupid rum." Heh. Heh heh.)

    Has anyone else ever thought on creating the Compass of Xorr as an item? Now would be a good chance.

    Obviously it would be an arcane item. (it is an enchanted, sentient compass after all) Funny cards for it would be Quick Rotate, Spin Around and Forced Rotate. (obviously MOST of these are not cards that are meant for arcane item slot, nor player characters)

    I'd like the compass to be at least an Epic item, just like the other "sentient" items in the game. (the famous trio from AotA expansion) This is what I came up with:

    (lvl 16 epic arcane item)

    I've already posted my item idea for the AA#10 so if anyone else is interested to refine this idea to the contest, please go a head and use it.
