Alright, so in the interest of keeping things simple so everyone might have a chance to participate, the challenge here is to create a magical or psionic item that speaks. This could be an intelligent item that telepathically communicates with the person holding it, or a giant Moai head guardian that asks riddles of any trespassers or anything in between. The only caveats are that the item has to be magical or psionic in nature and that the item has to be able to hold at least a rudimentary two-way conversation. Other than that, the world is your oyster.
Let's set a closing time of midnight EST on Saturday, April 30th on this one. It's a relatively simple challenge, so two weeks seems like a fair timeframe.
