The Almighty Ring Of Oops

Description: The Almighty Ring Of Oops is quite
gaudy and tastless. It's made of
imitation gold, and is about a sixth
of an inch thick. The object is
studded with many small, red glass
gems, with a larg walnut sized fake
emerald dominating it.
History: The Almighty Ring Of Oops was
created by a rather insane little
man. The man, a hater of kender
(really, who isn't?), was quite rich,
and hired a mage to create the
ring for him. After it was created,
however, he really had no idea just
/why/ he'd had it made, so he ran
away without paying the mage. In
the end, the problem was solved
with a well-placed Fireball, and the
magic user just tossed the
enchanted piece of jewelry away.
How it Works: Upon being touched by a kender,
the ring has a 60% chance of
slipping onto the creature's hand.
At that point, there is another
30% chance that there will be a
burst of light, dealing the wearer
1d6 damage and blinding him for
1d4 rounds. If this doesn't happen,
however, a bright red beam of light
shoots directly forward from the
ring. The beam does 1d4 damage
to anything it hits. This beam,
however, has quite a bit of kick.
The kender will be fired backwards
2d20 feet x 10. The wearer trave;s
flying backwards at a rate of 100
fett per second, with anything up
to 20 feet thick he hits being
destroyed instantly. If the traveller
rams into something thicker than
20 feet, he will halt abruptly,
unhurt. Otherwise, he travels the
full distance, knocking any creature
getting in the way to the ground
and come to a stop unscathed.
Note: Avoid aiming ring at ground
unless you have wings.
