Please critique my item!

Pickled Orc’s Feet

And here we go....

The usual suspects beat me to it, and they have some very valid points.

My take:
Too many formating mistakes (aura, template, italics)

Why caster level 6? Because 3rd or even 5th level would be cheaper and cheaper sells (price to buy).

It is really heavy, understandably so, but heavy!

It has been a while since voting, but I recall seeing this, maybe even voting for it.

Your problem is that it is somewhat jokey (is that even a word?) based upon its name. Luckily it doesn't require consumption ;>

Very good description, the first three sentences are quite good. And then, BOOM, hello save adventuring item! That kills you in my book, if it violates Sean's list, then your item better be damn good!

The last few sentences actually save the item somewhat, giving it some extra things to do. But as I write this, it occurs to me that that is sign of poor design => if you have to give an example it is not clear. Wondrous items never ever should have an example.

I actually think that the feet are salvageable, they shouldn't trigger traps but maybe do bull rush or trip attacks as an ork could. The feet combine with an ork-like force?? Making it more dynamic and less save is key here.

Anyway, this is way better than last year's item, so good job.

Soulvine Seed

Your list making work should be rewarded, but not pulling any punches.

Good introduction

And licking, yeah, that lost you votes right there. The rest of the paragraph is very confusing, I really don't know what the effect of the seed will be, only that it might give me a drawback.

If you have to provide an example in your item description then you are NOT being clear. Also, your effect is very hard to get, why am I paying 9k for this again?

I understand what you are trying to do, but it takes far too long to get to the good stuff. My suggestion would be to focus on clearer mechanics and don't bury your lead.

COAT OF THE ETERNAL VAGABOND

I liked it for the murderhobo vibe it displayed, it does make it somewhat harder for the GM as it can derail adventures...

Hey, I just saw a torc that was pretty solid. Don't be hatin'.

But voting is hating, it's anger, hatred, suffering, so much suffering...

Also saw the RPG Superstar 2014

But the real question is: where is my item, I want to vote for it again.

Well the cull might not happen if we keep op the momentum of voting, if however the momentum stops Paizo can trigger a surge by colling.

Everyone will need to check if their item is still there.

In full disclosure, I read it second hoping it was better than the first item I read, so I have no guilt voting for it.

People must really hate the rogues in their party.
