I thought 5e had curses, not drawbacks? AngelicBahamut (talk) 21:15, 22 January 2017 (MST)

It does have cursed Items, this is true. Page 143 of the DMG also details quirks and minor properties as a way of adding distinctiveness to the item. In the Sanctuary's Lot setting, magic items show up quite a lot, to avoid some of the "Monty Hall" syndrome, quite a lot of items have drawbacks or nuisance effects like those listed in the DMG to add a bit more flavor also to keep items from just being a sort of equipment. I don't know, to make magic items more...magical. And a little more dangerous. A quarter of the items in this setting have something that makes players think twice about using them casually, or taking them for granted.

I think its really a function of the setting itself. --Eviltenet (talk) 21:24, 22 January 2017 (MST)

Why not try something like the robe of eyes, which has a drawback, but doesn't have a tag in front of it? AngelicBahamut (talk) 17:33, 5 February 2017 (MST)

id like to draw attention to special rules like that. truth be told, id rather do it the other way; informally add the drawback tag to the robe of eyes. --Eviltenet (talk) 17:52, 5 February 2017 (MST)
