Postfest XVIII (Richfest 2016): Figurines of Wondrous Power!

Postfest XVIII (Richfest 2016): Figurines of Wondrous Power! has now ended.

First, we have a recap of the original Postfest XVIII (Richfest 2016): Figurines of Wondrous Power!announcement:

Welcome to Postfest XVIII (Richfest 2016): Figurines of Wondrous Power!

This Postfest will focus on less well known Figurines of Wondrous Power! Here are some suggestions as to what to include in your entries:

Magic item entries for Figurines of Wondrous Power include not only the type and number of animals in a set of such figurines, but the material they are made from; usually some sort of precious or semi-precious stone. Apart from that, such entries include rules for the use of these figurines (i.e. what they do in-game). Considering the variety of rules systems out there, some people might not be so inclined to include such crunchy bits, but I think it would be helpful to include them to illustrate how each author sees their figurine (s) working in general within the confines of the game (at least one version of it that is), and people can translate such rules to whatever format they wish. Donít feel penned in by this suggestion though! Feel free to make your submission game edition specific or neutral, super crunchy (i.e. lots o' rules) or completely fluffy (background), or anywhere in between. Additionally, authors may wish to include the history of their figurines, such as who is thought to have first made them, who used them/famous uses of them, etc. Mind you, this is not a hard and fast format, but more people will find your article useful if you adhere to at least some of the above suggestions. No pressure though! Write what YOU want to write about! Now, on to the format...

Your submission should be in the realm of 1,000-4,000 words or so in length (more is fine; less not so much). That is not set in stone, but it is a good average length for any Article. As usual, be sure to not only Spell Check your article but read it over yourself, as Spell Check will catch many things, but seldom everything. You may submit your article on the Submit Article page. Be sure to write a short introductory teaser for your article, and cite any sources you may have used as well. See the directions at the top of the Submit Article page if you have any problems with the text not being accepted (this may happen if you use Internet Explorer). Even if the text is not accepted, you must still go through the process of submitting your article title on the Submit Article page. When e-mailing an article to editors<at>canonfire<dot>com, be sure that your article is in simple Word form, contains no unsupported fonts, and with no formatting of any sort (i.e. the simpler the better). This just makes things a whole lot easier for us to deal with, so please take the time to do this. When submitting your article, please be sure to put the title of your submission in the following format:
