Comments: What do you guys suggest for putting cursed items in your game?
Gamer Forge Response:
In regards to cursing your items...err, I mean using cursed items for your game, the big question is, "How much is too much?" We answered: "No more than one." At least have it do no more than one thing. A bag of devouring is ONLY a bag that devours whatever passes through its mouth. Don't make it end the world or shoot lasers from its newly-formed eyes. However, that one thing can cause additional complications. The bag may decide that it likes your character and try to eat other hands that try to remove it from his/her belt. On your back? It may just try to eat your head and take over your body. Whatever you decide, it just needs to make sense and have an explanation.
Also, cursed items make great adventure hooks. Taking a cursed ring across a valley of darkness through a horde of orcs and into a volcano, all while avoiding the lord of all evil? Sounds pretty exciting to me!
