Talk:Blood Moss (3.5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

I don't really see any point to this... It appears to have no benefits. To make this this better, I might make the Blood Moss help heal wounds faster. However, if you do this, you need to determine a price for this item. --Green Dragon 23:09, 4 January 2007 (MST)

It's original purpose was to stop bleeding wounds, like those delt by rogues in using Arterial Strike. It also prevented the worsening of wounds and the infections of them. Both of those things were DM specific rules with the guy who was running the game. In standard DnD, it seems to have lost most of its usefulness. --Cypresslyshra 23:15, 4 January 2007 (MST)
Amendum: Also, it's listed as being a remedy against nausea, and as anethesia (Knockout). Should I turn that into number terms?--Cypresslyshra 23:17, 4 January 2007 (MST)
I would say yes. This item has a good idea behind it, it just needs to be made a little more D&D-Friendly. --Green Dragon 23:23, 4 January 2007 (MST)
*Salutes* I shall get right on it!--Cypresslyshra 23:31, 4 January 2007 (MST)
Looks better. --Green Dragon 15:15, 5 January 2007 (MST)

Some questions[edit]

I understand it having no major viable market value because it has a shelf-life of less than a week, but in terms of knowledge and survival checks, how easy/diffcult is this stuff to find, identify, and use? Also, are the "non-fresh" forms sold commercially? And last but not least, if these things are partial to rocks, are they also partial to enchanted/magical rocks, and non-naturally occurring rocks (could I put this on a stone golem to turn him into an ambulance, or could I slap this on a castle wall)? Any thoughts? --Theophenes 00:31, 1 May 2007 (MDT)

Blood moss is blood red, and looks like the funny florecent yellow lichen that you find on trees, so I would say if you know what it is, it's really easy to find. Non-fresh forms aren't sold, because no one has ever found a use for it dry. And it grows on rock like any moss/lichen, and unless the rock in question is designed to make plants grow faster, I don't know why it would be any More partial to magical stone.
Hope that helps--Cypresslyshra 16:11, 1 May 2007 (MDT)

Northern Lights[edit]

I have heard of blood moss before... It is in "Northern Lights" by philip pullman. You might want to add a disclaimer at the end of the page (see LotR campain setting), but unlike most copyright breaches I see, I can see it working in D&D, so keep it and add a disclamer (just in case) --Sam Kay 07:01, 25 August 2007 (MDT)

Is this idea from that book or is it original? --Green Dragon 12:08, 25 August 2007 (MDT)
The idea of using it like a bandage is definitely from northern lights. I say add a disclaimer, just to be safe... --Sam Kay 13:35, 25 August 2007 (MDT)
Would you mind adding a disclaimer or would you prefer I do? --Green Dragon 12:06, 26 August 2007 (MDT)
I'll see if I can make a general template for it... I'll use the LotR one as a base. --Sam Kay 11:31, 29 August 2007 (MDT)
Now if we want to include copyright material on pages, all we have to do is place this at the bottom of each page that has copyright; {{Legal Disclaimer (General)}}. Any Good?--Sam Kay 12:21, 29 August 2007 (MDT)
I have modified it slightly (renamed, made the width 100%, etc) however I think you made a good base. Thanks. --Green Dragon 22:19, 29 August 2007 (MDT)
No problem! It's nice to be able to make D20 adaptations of our favourite books and films without legal issues now. --Sam Kay 05:00, 30 August 2007 (MDT)
