Better than what TSR came up with, at least...

It's an intentional science joke.

And it’s awesome!

Fair enough. I didn't read what they did, just the names.

I like this idea for the Turkey Legs. Better than what I was going to say about the original point of people using Turkey Legs.

I was thinking a snake ball, like this but tighter with different dragon colored scales

Love the idea of all 0s and a 1 or 2. These also shouldn't give a bonus to hit.

Can we swap art for 3x and 10x?

Maybe Alkaline greaves rather than Basic and Very Basic? Neutralizing (though that implies poison to some)?

If Charm of the Champion is Volunteer, it is basically Greater Onyx and Greater Quicksilver combined, in the same slot. Just a thought.

I think Elder and Eldest should have names that are not so similar. Grand and Elder? I guess the idea is to demonstrate one is strictly better than the other without confusion, but I think it might be better another way. This one will require some time to find the correct adjectives.

I'm assuming Ghost Accelerator might be along the lines of Orion's belt? Or something to do with all these hitchhiking ghosts? Either way, I like it, though it doesn't feel like it's going to actually work very often.

Interesting idea to have the arcanum set piece be equipable rather than slotless.

Ghost Accelerator will ONLY function on a nat 1 as currently designed. If it's linked to a saving throw it will never be useful, the natural saving throw bonuses of monsters at Nightmare/Epic make them save on everything but an autofail.

Oh, absolutely. I'll be holding on to these as much for the joke as for their utility.

The closest I'm going to come to an Orb is fawning over one in coaching sometime, but this would be a gorgeous token to own.

Agree. As is the token is not useful.

Agree that the Turkey Legs should be nerfed. The appeal of the Turkey Leg is that it's a joke weapon. These are actually good, which defeats the purpose.

Maybe turn the +1 Leg into “Overcooked Turkey Leg” with a damage wheel of 0 0 0 0 1, and the +2 Leg into “Desiccated Turkey Leg” with a wheel of 0 0 0 0 2. That would eliminate the + to hit, and still keep the idea.

Sure, and just get rid of the relic
