Dream-Flea & Garrek's Kiss -Generic Creatures for any setting

Dream fleas are tiny creatures that can almost not be seen with the naked eye. Silver in appearance during the day and with a slight bio—illuminant glow at night the tiny creature is extremely easy to kill if found. However, the problem comes in that the Dream-Flea likes the region of the body most covered in hair; in most humanoid creatures this means the top of the head.

 Once attached to their victim, the Dream-Flea injects a toxin that causes the person to see images and events that are not real. As time goes on the victim slowly gets pulled into a pure dream state seeing whatever images the toxin creates and not reality itself.

The Dream-flea is not a deadly creature, and after it has finished feeding from its victim flies away. However, residual toxin remain in the victim’s system for the rest of his or her life causing rare but potentially powerful relapses into the dream state.

Garrek’s Kiss is an insect from the rain forests of the south, a large chitious creature with a long, stinger and quad mandibles. Garrek’s Kiss got its name from the Dwarf who discovered and who was its first victim. Garreck’s Kiss will ambush its prey and attach itself to the face of its victim. Once attached the Garrek’s Kiss will stab the victim multiple times with its stinger and during this has a 30% chance of laying its eggs in the victim’s stomach. Once impregnated (and if it survived the Garrek’s Kiss’s attack) the victim will die within 1d4 days when the Garrek’s Kiss larvae burst from his or her stomach. The only way to rid yourself of the egg is through Cure Disease spells or spell-like ability.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
