    Half scroll of wishing. To any examination or divination this appears to be a scoll of wishing, however, if it is actually cast it will give the caster exactly half of whatever he wished for.

    Ring of Dubiously True Seeing: Grants the wearer true seeing as long as he's wearing it, but also causes him to see random hallucinations, indistinguishable from what he sees via True Seeing.

    I've actually used this one several times. Got interesting results.

    NPC Of Three Wishes

    An old man who does not speak. He is only capable of answering yes or no questions by nodding/shaking his head. He knows everything there is to know, but it is up to the questioner (the PCs) to ask the questions. This NPC is willing to travel with the party if asked. Only the party, deities, and particular unique beings know he is there. Whenever any player, in or out of character, says anything along with the word "wish" that wish is immediately granted with least harm to the wisher as possible. After the third wish is granted, the old man disappears.

    My favorite wish: In a 2E game the party met a werewolf who wasn't attacking. While unknowing the nature of the old man, the paladin player sighed "I wish I could cure you." Wish granted. Paladin could expend a Remove Disease and cure the werewolf of his lycanthropy.

    Coat of Arms

    This magical coat can produce 1d12 arms per day from it's pockets, they do not include hands or shoulders and cannot be animated into flesh constructs nor into the undead. They do not have a taste and do not provide nutrition.
    They do not contain blood.


    Ring of Faith

    Once per day if the character and her party are unsure whether an action would be fatal to the ring's wearer the wearer may call upon her god to take a +2 save against fear caused by performing the action herself.

    Broom Of Sweeping

    The broom of sweeping can be used to clear dust, dirt, and debris along the ground.

    Cup of Holding

    This item can be used to hold any liquid filling a volume up to its size. This function does not prevent putting small solid objects into the cup if one desires instead.

    I had a bard in one campaign with a hat that could be changed at will to any sort of headgear. Each round I would declare what my hat was, from fedora with a roc's feather in it to a derby to a top-hat to a ball-cap to a cowboy hat, etc, ad nauseum.

    That hat went through 3 PCs from different parties as folks would kill the owner for it, creating a vicious circle of death and snappy dressing.
    Just in case, in any game I've applied to without being selected: DMs are more than welcome to use my submission as an NPC as they wish!

    Spice of Spiciness
    This spice will make other spices appear to be more like themselves, this does not improve the flavor of them but rather makes the spices used to make them more easily identified, granting a +2 circumstance bonus to know what spices were used in the food's production.

    Amulet of Drop Bear Warding - Wards against drop bears.

    Hand of metagaming - a long but small spatula shaped object which materializes from the ground and strikes the PCs of players guilty of obnoxious metagaming for damage equivalent to being hit by a human monk of an equal level with superior unarmed strike and a 10 Str. Also for 1d4 damage when the DM is pissed.

    Actually there are three versions which do SNA II, SNA III or SNA V depending upon colour but they always seem to just get sold.

    What happens when you hit a second opponent? Does it grow another new sword becoming 1d6/1d6/1d6... because that'd be hilarious.

    Helm of Ineptitude: This normal-looking helm takes its true form and manifests its powers when the user dons it and speaks the command word. Made of brilliant silver and polished steel, a newly created helm is set with large magic gems: ten diamonds, twenty rubies, thirty fire opals, and forty opals. When struck by bright light, the helm scintillates and sends forth reflective rays in all directions from its crownlike, gem-tipped spikes. The helm may be used once per round, but each gem can perform its spell-like power just once. Until all its jewels are depleted, a helm of brilliance also has the following magical properties when activated.

    To activate the Helm, the wearer plucks one gem from it an throws it at the target. That gem then crumbles to dust, and all of the other gems activate as though 10 Prismatic Sprays, 20 Walls of Flame, 30 Fireballs and 40 Light spells were cast simultaneously.

    Centred on the wearer.

    @ Lord Raziere: Read the Axe of Bar description again. That thing you describe, that would just be out of character.

    I'd like the violin. Sometimes you need the other guy to make the first move. Any witnesses will go 'He had it coming for playing the violin so horribly!' and get laughed out of court. Just don't do it too often, or word might get around.

    My entry: Magical dice that roll themselves with a command word that also requires a somatic components and has ASF. Or a chess game that announces each move in a hushed tone (possibly making comments on the history of the opening and/or commenting on whether the player is a moron for doing it), and conducts interviews with captured pieces (think professional sports people and sports journalists) if any player takes too long to move.

    It depends on the edition; 3.5, for example, allows you to stuff extra special abilities on pretty nearly any magic item for only a moderate surcharge, so a necklace that a) allows another necklace slot and b) carries its own special abilities is actually quite useful, since it can save on overall cost.

    Hey, I already thought of that one (with -4 instead of -2, but still).

    Original entries:

    Ring of Soundtracks: While worn, this ring plays soundtracks appropriate to what is happening.

    Ring of Chickens: Causes the character to have the chicken-infested flaw for as long as he wears it. If the character aleady has this flaw, he gets two chickens at a time.

    Actually there is not. A character can put as many non-magical necklaces around his neck as he can carry, but only one magical necklace will function while around the neck.

    The necklaces of necklace-wearing is as per the OP a Magic Item. Magic Items can be further enchanted. The original magic property of the necklace of necklace-wearing is to allow wearing another (magical) necklace. So you basically have two necklace slots (enchanting one will be 50% more expensive though for most enchantments)
