Including, perhaps animal personalities.



I could easily imagine shaman binding beast spirits into a medicine bundle, paid of sandals, war club, or etcetera, to imbue them with a skill or strength that the creature had in life.


This could be FUN.

Oh, yes. I love my Fleet Antelope Sandals, but they get all twitchy whenever I pick up my Spear of Lion Courage.

I am now imagining a world where ALL magic items have personality - they are powered by what the wizards call demons - and whenever you don an item you take on some of its aspect. If you use more than one magic item you will be subject to occasional paralysis of thought unless the items have very similar goals.

Items want to be worn, so a 4/IQ roll might be required to take one off. Certainly you can't depend on being able to casually remove one as a battle starts.

Perhaps demons/elementals (or maybe the souls of people?!) are bound into items? This accounts for personality/Talent...be an interesting ritual to create the item too.
