Item Seed: Nullspice.

Nullspice

Description: derived from the umbel of the root vegetable Dacus carota purgiato, a form of supernaturally-infused carrot native to the area around what used to be the Aral Sea.  The umbel is collected, dried, and carefully powered. It tastes (pleasantly) somewhat of wintergreen, and promotes a sense of refreshment and cleansing when ingested.  Nullspice is mundanely nontoxic, in regular doses; see below for supernatural complications.

Item Seed: Boots of the Beast.

Boots of the Beast

Description: crude black leather moccasins that can be somehow stretched to cover any human foot.  Both Boots of the Beast must be worn (and against bare skin, and on the foot itself, and please stop trying to get around the enchantment, because it’s perfectly obvious that they’re supposed to be worn as shoes, and by one person) for the Boots to work properly.  Boots of the Beast are more or less invulnerable, and smell faintly of burnt wood, sun-dried mud, and old blood.

Powers: when dipped in the blood of an animal, Boots of the Beast grants the wearer two random positive and two negative (only one of which will be random) aspects of that animal, without actually making any physical changes to the wearer.  For example: dipping the Boots in the blood of a moose might give the wearer a certain invulnerability to blunt trauma, and considerably more invulnerability to head injuries, but might also make the wearer fairly aggressive when provoked.  It also always makes the wearer think like a moose, down to reflexes and instinctive reactions.

Item Seed: Faberge Dice.

Faberge Dice

Description: thirteen dice: one 4-sided, six 6-sided, one eight-sided, two 10-sided, two 12-sided, and one 20-sided.  Each die is made out of ruby and sheathed in platinum; the numbers are etched in, and filled with diamond chips.  There is nothing supernatural about any of the dice.

Value: considerable — and staggeringly so, for the complete set.  Which will never, ever happen.

Item Seed: Simulation Bypass Unit.

Simulation Bypass Unit

Description: a Simulation Bypass Unit (SBU) is a set of six oblong units that somehow manage to adhere to any flat surface, without damage, moving, falling, or sinking.  The surface feels like warm metal; the oblongs are utterly impervious to any kind of damage, up to and including coming into contact with antimatter. Weight is negligible.  Power is unlimited. And good luck trying to figure out who makes these things.

Use: Set the units into a rough hexagon, with no unit more than a yard from any other: when the last unit is placed, the(SBU) will suddenly snap into a perfect hexagon array that leads one to RealSpace (see below).  People will find being caught in the SBU array when it forms very strange.  Not fatal or even really dangerous, but strange.

Item Seed: Royal Bone Jam.

Royal Bone Jam

It is unfortunate for the Candy-Cow of Altair 7 that it is, from nose to tail, a thrifty confectioner’s dream.  The ecology of Altair 7 runs heavily — even absurdly — towards sugars, and the Candy-Cow is aptly named; every part of it is deliciously sweet, with flavors that tantalize the human palate.  Additionally, the flavors of Candy-Cow meat change amazingly when roasted.  There are a lot of arguments over whether Candy-Cows taste better raw or cooked, but very few humans will refuse a plate of Candy-Cow flesh that’s been prepared in either style.

Item Seed: Justice Fruit.

Justice Fruit

citrus limon veritatis

Description: The Justice Fruit tree is a tree that produces very sweet, very large, slightly blue-tinted lemons.

Powers: The juice of a Justice Fruit temporarily (one hour per lemon) unlocks a latent human psionic ability to detect spoken falsehoods.  It’s not perfect, but even otherwise untrained people will still be able to tell when somebody’s lying to them. As for people with formal training? Well, trial attorneys absolutely love this stuff.

Item Seed: That Which Harvests.

That Which Harvests

Description: a sickle with a discolored, serrated metal harvester’s blade, and leather-covered wooden handle.  The handle will always (slightly) scratch the hand that holds it, no matter how much protection is worn. That Which Harvests (full name: That Which Harvests the Blasted Fields) absolutely registers as Evil, and scans as being generically demonic in origin, but has no formal spellcraft associated with it.

Item Seed: Gudmil.

Gudmil

Description: a garishly-colored paper-like bag, filled with the following items: a hunk of bright purple meat wrapped in a green-colored organic wrapping and covered in a variety of substances; a closed fluid container of about two cups or so capacity, filled with an extremely cold, bubbly liquid; a small clear box containing a disassembled mechanism of some sort; three sealed packets filled with an interesting smelling, thixotropic substance; and a medium box of fries, lightly salted.  The bag, the various containers inside it, and even the bubbles of the liquid all prominently feature an odd design that seems to be a stylized representation of the continent of Australia.

Item Seed: Moon Poop.

Warning: I used a couple bad language words.

Moon Poop

Description: it is, in fact, a tightly sealed container holding the organic residue of the first human solid excrement generated on Earth’s moon, where said excrement was exclusively derived from food grown and prepared on the moon.  If you’re wondering how people could possibly know that, it’s probably because this excrement (and no other) glows silver-white, with a pulse that waxes and wanes with the lunar cycle.  Needless to say, Moon Poop tests as being of esoteric origin. It has no other known properties than its ability to drive physicists mad with its mere existence.
