Timeless Myths Magic Item Shop Random Inventory Generator Instructions: Simply enter a number for how many items of each type the magic shop should have. If a shop shouldn't have any of those items, leave the field blank or enter a 0. Then press submit and the page will reload with a Magic Item Shop inventory listed below that fits your criteria. Or as a shortcut select a value for "Pre-fill as shop size" then submit, or customize the settings then submit. This generator uses the probabilities in the SRD as faithfully as possible with one exception noted below. (If you notice any problems let me know.) The exception is that scrolls of any power level (minor, medium, and major) have the same random chances to have between 1-6 spells, weighted toward fewer spells. Remember that except for very high magic settings, characters shouldn't be able to walk into a "MagicMart" with many items to choose between so use this tool wisely. Pre-fill based on shop size:
Lyssa Description She personifies mad rage and frenzy, as well as rabies in animals. In Herakles she is called upon by Hera to inflict the hero Heracles with insanity. In this scenario she is shown to take a temperate, measured approach to her role, professing "not to use [her powers] in anger against friends, nor [to] have any joy in visiting the homes of men." Greek vase-paintings of the period indicate her involvement in the myth of Aktaion, the hunter torn apart by his own, maddened dogs as a punishment for looking on the naked form of the goddess Artemis.

The Grigori The Watchers The Lord spoke: "Have no fear, Enoch, good man and scribe of goodness. Come hear my voice. Go speak to the Watchers of Heaven, who have sent you to intercede for them. Tell them, You should intercede for men, and not men for you. (1 Enoch) In the early days after the Fall, before the demons had escaped from Hell and before the War had begun in earnest, the Seraphim Council debated long and long about how best to safeguard humanity. Seemingly in answer, God created the Grigori, the Eight Choir. The Grigori were truly the most "human" of angels. The Grigori were also the only angels who really felt comfortable on Earth, and who didn't mind staying there. It made them very, very effective at their jobs. The "Second Fall" In 11,600 B.C., it came to the attention of Heaven that the Grigori had become entirely too human; they had taken wives, started families, and some were even succumbing to debauchery, immersing themselves in corporeal pleasures.

INC: The Grigori (unofficial version) (unofficial version) by "Kirt A. Dankmyer -- aka Loki" (email@example.com) Here is my version of the Grigori. It was raining. Fredrico didn't like the way the man had been standing there, watching him from across the street, waiting. Fredrico decided to ignore him while he locked up for the night. And nearly jumped out of his skin, when a voice behind him spoke: "If I could make a suggestion." Fredrico whipped around. "No," said the man. Fredrico looked at the chain. Outcasts one and all, shunned and heavily Discordant, there are still some Grigori left on Earth. Grigori have a resonance for fine detail. Nothing, no tiny detail, is beneath a Watcher's notice. This fine eye for detail also gives the Grigori an intuitive insight into any activity a human or Celestial might be undertaking. The fact that this part of their resonance can be applied to any activity is part of what tripped up the Grigori in the first place. Intimacy with humans generates dissonance in a Watcher. Blandine.
