Well, you flat-out told me that the cursed item may not stick around as the game is supposed to be light-hearted, but then asked for community input on the item. I was under the impression that I would be allowed to add some flavor to the character, but apparently not.
Someone else then put an item on the character that you immediately shot down, saying "I still feel inclined to say no to anything like this". That tells me that you are in control of what does and does not happen with the character, taking the decision to let us add stuff to him/her/it/whatever out of our hands. If you aren't trying to control the character, then you are doing a good job of not doing just that.
Just my 2 cents. I don't want to be a dick, so I'll stop with the thread-jack.
