Not a particularly playable version, but well themed might be:
I love @j3st3ri's idea, but may I point out that for it to have any chance of winning, AT really needs a major token -- and AT really looks beautiful for the item! (..despite it showing a sundial instead of a compass..) I agree that it'd be nice to have an "Impetuous" kind of card, (mandatory/trait of some sort,) probably in place of Telekinesis (because Maze is just so great for the theme!), but what rare silver-to-gold card could replace it? Indeed, Spin Around might actually be pretty funny for it -- and weird to have on an Arcane item. (And even if an elf wizard is crazy enough to use EM or Pathfinding to draw it, it's still a tempo loss to cycle, thus not exactly OP -- even moreso for wizards who *usually* don't need to worry so much about facing.) Oh, but Spin Around is common. $:^ \
To go with Scarponi's extension of the idea (which looks like an Elf Skill instead of an Arcane Item)...
Maze | Pathfinding | Forced Rotate
...might be too annoying to ever play, even at uncommon and tokenless (level 6ish), but...
Spin Around | Pathfinding | Forced Rotate
...might be too annoying to ever, ever play, being uncommon and minor (level 12ish).
And just fwiw, Spin Around | Maze | Forced Rotate would be uncommon tokenless (level 3) and still probably too useless.
However! I did get an idea while typing that last sentence. $:^ b
Compass of Xorr
...might just be sick and wonderful. $E^ D
What if the Compass of Xorr had Prestidigitation (hope I spelled right, at work, can't check)? Symbolizing taking the turn to "check the Compass".
This could leave us an Arcane Item with:
(Can't add links from work, but you all get the idea).
I like the idea that the Compass would be used like a buckler. (it can't be bigger than that, right?)
I also really like the idea behind Prestidigitation. If the item needs to have a major power token, like @PKB suggested, how about this:
This would be a lvl 18 epic arcane item.
Looks fun and awesome, @j3st3ri, but I just don't expect Maze of the Mind to get anywhere near items. What's that lesser Maze of the Mind card in leagues? It still would probably be too powerful... And really, between AT and Prest, they feel like they await some other flavorful item together instead...
Makes me think of a fun item themes - putting Accelerate Time together with Prestidigitation is a great start for something like a Timestutter Shroud (Robes, Lvl 18 Rare, Accelerate Time, Force Field, Prestidigitation), or maybe the Amulet of Temporal Distortion (Arcane Item, Lvl 18 Rare, Accelerate Time, Reflexive Teleport, Prestidigitation). I'm sure there are other fun combinations out there too.
Obviously, the Compass is designed to reveal the hidden path to find the treasure, so...
Compass of Xorr
level 21 uncommon Elf Skill
Elvish Insight, Pathfinding, Rich
Let's see what else we can put in that third slot...
Unfortunately, Spin Around and Escaping Run are also silver quality, so...
How about this?
Compass of Xorr
level 17 uncommon Elf Skill
Pathfinding, Elvish Insight, Scouting Run
My submission lacks a bit badazz, so im throwing a more daring idea out here i had:
Martial Skill, lvl9, 1 minor.
The idea is that even a warrior picks up some tricks when hes adventuring with priests and mages long enough, and the humble teachings of his friends are resurfacing in solitude.
Crusher is pretty much exchangeable, should be something representing the warrior class though. Also i like the artwork, three classes, three hands.
Here's my submission. Never go anywhere without your trusty multi-tool. Trying to create an decent tokenless tech alternative for warriors. Feel it's got a good range of weak tech attacks. Never know what you'll need when you're out in the unknown. Not sure if Wimpy kills it for play-ability but I thought it fit the them perfectly!
Wanted to put buzz saw on it and change the sundering strike into a nimble strike but I didn't want to risk putting a monster only card on my submission
Lv 6 Tokenless Rare
I like it and the wimpy is obviously there because of the awesome image
Oh, and it's not lvl 7, it's lvl 6. (weapons with a level of x.5 can be rounded down to the lower level. However, it's worth noting that lvl 13 and lvl 13.5 weapons have different token costs, so keep that in mind if creating an item around that level)
Insipired by @Zugon's entry:
Palm Frond Parasol
level 15 epic divine item
Soothing Darkness, Soothing Darkness, Combustible
I did it in case Flax didn't get the reference. I wouldn't mind someone adding a small thing explaining their entry, although it makes it weaker if you have to explain the obvious.
The downloadable spreadsheet still lists FG as the old paper quality and Tongue Grab as the old bronze quality. (I don't know about the online version.) Yeeaah, sorry to say, but your item is something like level 33. $E^ D ~~Would that cost a or only a ? lol $E^ b
For future reference, there are exceptions, but for a quick guide without Vakaz, just do this:
...count, then multiply by 3 (then divide by 2 if a 6-card item). Therefore, for yours, I just said gold -> 3, gold -> 6, purple -> 11, x3 -> 33.
That is what I know but this item fits the theme perfectly. I have updated changed version.
This is pretty silly, but people seemed to like my umbrella, so I thought I'd see if I could make a Soothing Darkness item that people would want to play...
Shroud of the Vampire Queen
level 8 legendary divine item
Soothing Darkness, Savage Curse, Sapping Spear
I see no one has posted The Compass of Xorr in any of its forms. $:^ ]
I considered posting mine (since that post got more likes than any of my other ones), but I felt it would have problems due to needing custom item art and also the issue of whether it should be a guaranteed drop from that module (my version was level 17).
Seems like most people did "deserted island theme" more than "item to grab when about to be on a deserted island."
Granted, I think the "deserted island theme" item is stronger thematically for a cool item, but that isn't really what Flax was asking for. I came up with a few good ideas including monkey related things, but again that's not really what he was asking for. Unsure if I should go with what is cool or what better fits his theme goal.
Decided to just go for a fun entry, since I don't think I'll win twice in a row :-P
Basically boots that let you control monkeys and act like a monkey. I assume if the island has monkeys you'd be set for life having monkey butlers and everything.
Isn't Raging Drunk already better 2 x Everybody Drink! Dwarf Skill? (I take Blind Rage over Slowed everyday)
