#AtoZ: V is for Volute

This post belongs to the #AtoZchallenge 2024, where I attempt to turn a word a day into something that can be used in Role Playing Games.

A volute is a spiral, scroll-like ornament, a compression spring or a curved funnel in a pump.

How to integrate it into your typical fantasy RPG?

  • Of course, as a dungeon ornament. Feel free to use it plenty, especially in Greek themed dungeons!
  • It could be a spring that stores the physical energy of former attempts to be released on an attempt of utmost importance – burning itself (and its user) on the occassion (perhaps 1d6 damage per stored attempt, but also causing increasing damage by 2d6 or jump width / height by one increment or running speed by 30 feet.)
  • It could also be a cursed item that ensures regardless of what a user does (walking, running, jumping) he won’t get quicker or farther, the item cancelling out the increased effort.
