Good morning Foodie Friends! I just returned from a farm owned by the sweetest couple who raise super cute chickens. I've bought several peculiar eggs to try out in a recipe for enchanted muffins.These large chicken eggs come in a variety of colors. The shade dictates the effect it produces in either cooking/spells or from being thrown. These are always unfertilized.
Unless fertilized, all eggs have a smooth coloration with no speckles or other patterning. They are roughly 6 inches long with a 4 inch diameter at the widest point. Their shells are hard and sturdy. They also emit a pleasant floral scent.
Each color of egg corresponds to a specific magical effect. A few produce something when thrown like a weapon. Most are meant for consumption. When used in baking / cooking, the egg will imbue the food with its effect.
Color Coded Magic
There is only one farm in Omari that raises the chickens who lay these eggs. The Fey Courts ruled that this was okay so long as Lunan didn't take any more birds from their realm. If anyone else is caught raising them, they are to be reported and dealt with. Otherwise one would have to find eggs from fey chickens in their natural habitat on their own, or convince a Feywild resident to buy theirs.
Hard to Find
Lunan Kordi's Farm
Excellent article! Just one highly specific question: what if you dyed a dark grey one red and then fed it to someone to assassinate them? Would they blow up? Or would the egg blow up when they tried to cook it?
Ooooh, that would be a tempting assassination attempt hehe. But! The effect happens upon breaking the shell, so cooking those eggs would be BAD. xD (Which is why Lunan advises people watch where they step and they are super careful with handling.) Thankfully the shells are hard enough to resist at least a little force (say, you accidentally nudge it or something), but giving it a good throw or hard tap on the counter will definitely set it off.
Then again, as long as you give the egg too the target, and have *them* try to cook with the eggs, then they get blown up. (of course, most people who get assassinated don't cook their own eggs) The fact that this plot was the first thing I thought of when reading about the eggs probably proves just how much of a DnD player I am lol.
