Magical items sold at mysterious "Spells R Us" shoppe
The mysterious Spells R Us (SRU) shop is usually found in random
malls or shopping areas, it is owned (and normally staffed) by an
"old man wearing what looks to be a bathrobe". The shop is filled
with varied trinkets and sometimes potions, the shopper always
seems to choose the item that best fits them, as though it were
destined they be joined.
Strangely, the proprietor or his staff always seem to know more
about the shopper than they should, and their chosen purchase
always seems to be equal to the money that the shopper is carrying.
Sometimes the shop remains in the same place for a short while,
while other times it will vanish unnoticed.
Synopsis provided by Mr. Ram
Spells 'R Us is a small shop located in the mall and run by an old
man who more often than not wears what looks like a bathrobe. In
the shop, magical spells and/or items may be purchased. It is a
universe, where, quite obviously, magic works. However, few people
believe in magic, which in turn leads to careless and sloppy
spellcasting. And when you add in the shopkeeper's somewhat warped
sense of humor, just about anything can and does happen. Simply,
this universe can be described as: "What you see, ain't necessarily
(or usually) what you get." It is also a universe which is easily
carved into sub-universes. The "Animal Crackers" and "People
Crackers" stories by Michael Rich spring to mind. Each originate at
the Spells 'R Us shop, but then each set of crackers takes on its
Open for new stories:
Guidelines researched and submitted by Mr. Ram
- The stories should revolve about the store in the mall "Spells 'R
Us" and/or the wizard(s) running it.
- Since the universe, is a spin-off of my "Strangeness at the Frat
House" story, don't mess with the characters in it. They may appear
in your stories, but nothing permanent may be done to them. It's my
job to mess those characters up.
- Any possible transformation is acceptable.
- With the exception of item 2, just about anything is fair game. The
only limiting factor is the limit of your imagination.
