Klodi’s Cursed Boots
As the dwarf fighter returned to the small cottage he noticed an odd sight; a pair of boots on the floor next to a table and chair full of coins. There was no sign of Bakra-do, although the boots looked liked the pair they had found while adventuring some time ago. Unable to help himself, the dwarf naturally poured the coins onto the table and counted them as he waited for his adventuring companion to return. Just as he placed the last coin on its stack Bakra-do appeared, shoeless, next to the table.
‘Were you counting those coins for me, or for you?’ the mercenary asked.
‘I was just counting them. Where did they go?’ asked the astonished dwarf who was confused by the recent events. Bakra-do jerked a thumb towards himself and smirked.
‘The coins became me,’ he said.
Even more confused the dwarf threw his arms in the air.
‘We’ve been in this blasted town for too long, it is time for adventure!’ the dwarf blurted out.
‘That I heartily agree too. Let’s gift these boots to a rich merchant first and keep an eye on him,’ suggested Bakra-do.
Well made leather boots with magical inscriptions up the sides. Radiate magic that seems vague and powerful.
Benefit: As the second boot is placed upon the receiving foot the wearer is immediately transformed into a pile of silver and gold coins equal to the value of what they were carrying at the time. These coins fill the shoes first and then spill over. This curse may be reversed in one of two ways; either through the spell Dispel Curse or if an individual counts the coins into neat stacks, the instant all coins are counted the cursed individual returns to their natural form. If the coins are dispersed for more than one day the person dies.
Usable by: Anyone.
