So, this is a bit of a nitpicky thing to be discussing, but I wanted some input before I give the final verdict in my game.
A very rotund halfling player in my campaign recently recieved the "Wings of Flying" - which for our visualization purposes was described as being hawk-like in shape, coloration and plumage.
Now here's the crux. The wings will change shape to fit it's wearer proportionally - but our halfling player expressed a strong desire to have these wings take on a tiny, almost cherub-like appearance. Do I go along with this?
I'm usually all for rolling with player ideas, but for an item that's already this powerful, I'm a bit more hesitant to flex the rules, even if it's seemingly "only cosmetic". I don't give a crap about the physics of it all - it can be explained with magic. I'm moreso concerned with what if the wings themselves were targeted by an offensive spell or similar scenarios - accidentally overpowering these wings just by having them made smaller so suddenly a bunch of new exploitable possibilities and scenarios "just makes sense".
What are the consequences, or pros and cons, in modifying the size of the Wings of Flying? Had any previous experiences with resized items like this?
