Ring of Controllable Urge

Ring of Controllable Urge

After an earthquake uncovered a previously unknown tomb, a group of adventurers led by the red mage Darius Gall was hired to explore its depths prior to a team of archeologists entering. All was going well when Darius felt nature’s call and hung behind for a little privacy to relieve himself. Standing in a corner with his attention focused on other things, he failed to notice the pair of skeletons rise from a pile of refuse. Surprising him completely, the skeletons wounded Darius deeply and would have finished him off if it had not been for the lucky intervention of the party cleric.

Darius vowed that he would never again be caught with his pants down. After finishing the exploration, he took his share of the payment and set about the task of creating a special ring. Within a few weeks, he finished his rituals and slipped the completed ring on his finger, instantly feeling any urge to relieve himself fade away.

During his adventuring career, Darius met many people, mostly adventurers like himself, who offered to buy his ring. He kept the original for himself, but made many more just like it, making a handsome profit off of each one. Eventually, he gave up adventuring altogether and made a rather successful business from making and selling his now-famous rings.

A ring of controllable urge is a simple band of white gold with no markings or adornments save for Darius’ initials etched on the inside of the ring. When slipped on a person’s finger, the wearer immediately feels the effects of nature’s calling slip away, providing a unique feeling of comfort. While the ring is worn, the wearer does not feel any pain or discomfort due to not answering nature’s call, though he will need to remove the ring and purge his system every few days or he will begin to feel hungry and full at the same time. An added bonus of the ring is that the wearer never needs to worry about soiling himself due to fear or otherwise, no matter how frightened he gets.
