    Default One of the Least Known Netherese Magic Uses

    As a "smell-a-scope". Kind of like a scrying device (which let's you see far things as if there were right in front of you), only with odors.

    From the fearsome depths of the shadows of Shadowfel comes the greatest of all Netherese innovations, an unparalleled magical artifact of unlimited potential, a device few have heard of and fewer have seen... I present to you the unknown, the mysterious, the amazing... Magic Spork!

    The Netherese are a magical culture. What's one of the least-known ways they use magic?

    Not to be outdone by House Orion's Mail system, the Netherese use their command of shadow magic to send mail across town and across continents as well as across plans.

    There motto "Neither Rain, Sleet, Snow or the Light of Day will prevent the mail from its daily rounds"

    Default Enchanted Nose Rings

    One of the least-known ways the Netherese use their magic is through the enchanted nose rings fitted to each of their orc slaves.

    These colorful rings can be activated via magic control crystals worn on chains by the Netherese nobles.

    When activated, the rings send a thought-suggestion to all wearing the same color of ring, such as "Move those heavy stone blocks from the quarry to the building site three miles down the road.".

    Although not an actual charm or compulsion, the rings glow warm and give a forceful (and somewhat painful) tug to the poor orc's nose if they fail to comply.

    Orc slaves who manage to escape are generally too embarrassed to ever mention the rings, and thus few outsiders ever hear about them.

    At the height of Netheril's power, the archmage Notserp Mero developed a method of shearing the tops off of cakes, flipping them over, and building fruit and candle arrangements atop them. These floating "upside-down cakes" became a huge hit at Netherese birthday parties, and became more and more expensive and elaborate over time.

    Unfortunately, at the time of Karsus' Folly the great Netherese floating cakes came crashing to the ground, ruining birthday celebrations everywhere. The Netherese survived by shunting themselves to the anti-plane of shadow where they began celebrating their un-birthdays with tea and symmetrical crumpets (which were neither upside-down nor rightside-up).

    To this day the Netherese are dedicated to stamping out birthdays and the confetti-filled, pinata-like phaerim who celebrate them.

    It's always a shame when the hammer of poor design choices smashes the fun of player tactical adaptation.

    Hopefully the Netherese can use magic to give half-elves some facial structure.

    Default Umbrella replacements

    A modified ring of water breathing creates an anti-water shield over the individual which deflects rain drops before they hit the wearer. These can be had at any corner store for between 1 and 5 platinum pieces.

    Unbeknownst to many is the magical spell Winesight, which enchants a subject's vision so that women appear substantially more attractive than they are in reality.
