Medallion of Zulo
The Medallion of Zulo is a mysterious, magical (or perhaps cursed)
medallion, that can affect physical transformations upon a
person(s) wearing (or touching) it. The Medallion of Zulo has a
propensity for disappearing, becoming lost or stolen, or otherwise
moving on and out of reach of those affected by it... usually at a
most inconvenient time.

The rules... Hmmm... Well, They are not really rules. Rules sound
so stuck in school or something.
Guidelines... yeah... that's the ticket.
The guidelines are mainly on the how the medallion works, as
defined in "AF: Juvenile Delinquent" and "AF: Disguised For Life".
I actually wrote them into the universe.
I will start with non-medallion-related guidelines. (there are only
- The medallion looks like cheap costume jewelry. No matter how well
it is cleaned up it still looks cheap. That leads us to #2.
- No one ever pays much, if anything, for the medallion. Refer to #1.
- It has a picture of an angel or a fairy holding a wand, it has also
been described as possibly something demonic, since the origin is
unknown I suppose that is possible. There is also strange writing
around the outer edge, on the front and the back of it is blank, it
looks as though there may have been writing on it at one time or
may have just been scratched up.
Part of the goal of this universe is for the reader to think in the
back of their mind,
"Could this really happen?" Or," Could this happen to me?"
By making the medallion readily available, it makes these questions
Now for how the medallion works.
- The medallion transforms the wearer, meaning that if the wearer
removes the medallion the TF stops right there. If a character
takes the medallion off during an equine TF(into a horse) and
removes the medallion while he only has a tail. He will be a man
with a horses tail for twelve hours. (Refer to #2).
- A person's body can only handle one TF by the medallion in twelve
hours. It takes time for the body to recuperate.
- If one wears the medallion and another touches the medallion it
will produce a form swap, or they will look like the other used to.
As long as the wearer hasn't TF'ed with it in the last twelve
hours, in which case, nothing will happen.(refer to #2)
- If a woman is menstruating or pregnant, the medallion will not
completely TF her and then will auto-reverse the TF immediately.
This works for someone starting as female to begin with or a TG'ed
woman. Before the medallion will work on a pregnant/menstruating
woman. She must complete the pregnancy/menstruating and her body
chemistry must return to it's pre-pregnancy/menstruating state.
- The medallion only does slight mental changes. Very minor ones can
and are sometimes done by the medallion. Stronger mental changes
can be made but there has to be a prompt from an outside force. As
in the wearer donning a wedding band, then they might automatically
believe they are married, how to please their hubby/wife. That sort
of thing. I'm not a big fan of mind alterations, but they can be
"made" to occur. Be creative.
I think that about covers it. If you are not sure if something fits
and you don't find any reference in one of my AF stories (since
there are some errors in AF stories written by other authors) feel
free to e-mail me and ask. My address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I almost forgot... Rule Number 6!
6 HAVE FUN WITH IT!!!
Additional Notes gleaned from the official stories by "guest"
- When a clothing items is touched to the medallion (while it is
being worn), the medallion will transform the person wearing the
medallion into the form of the last person who wore that clothing
item. If the clothing item has never been worn before, the
medallion wearing body will be transformed to fit the clothing item
- The transformation is set in place (indefinite / "permanent") until
the medallion is used again.
