Just read over the “Concept Elemental” monster and had an idea for a magic item. Thought I’d take a crack at it and see what everyone thinks:
Mind Seed: There are places far stranger and far more removed from our realm than the astral plane. Infinitesimal realities born and destroyed in the faint thoughts and vague emotions of all sentient life. Mental energy crashing violently in locations unknowable, giving rise to life unobservable. Only recently have scholars begun to categorize the beings formed within these ephemeral micro-verses. Creatures known as ‘Concept Elementals.’
The brilliant point of light which now hovers gently in your palm is the unborn progeny of such a creature. Pure embryonic concept. Crush it between your fingers to infect those around you with an idea of your choosing. All it will cost is the life of a single un-had thought.
When you destroy the mind seed and make a single sentence statement roll + CHA *on 10+ sentient creatures within the immediate area will accept the statement as a truth, and will act on it to the best of their ability. *on 7-9 those affected by the mind seed immediately recognize that their will is not their own and may trace the alien thought to you. * On a miss, you’ve lost control of the nascent concept, and your statement mutates uncontrollably before infecting those around you like a virus.
