Non-Euclidean Architecture: Part 1    Systems  (Architectural)   (Specific)

 

From Innsmouth to Cthulhutech, a common phrase is “non-Euclidean architecture”.  But what is it, and how can it be included in your games in a way that is interesting and fun?

Ogrish Thundergun    Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Combat)

Everyone knows that firearms are weapons only fit for orcs—smelly, loud, and unreliable.  But there are guns made for ogres, too, and the largest of those are called Thunderguns.

The Gentle Beasts    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Other)

The cries sounded like some misshapen creature being devoured alive.  Or a stillborn baby deer, somehow struggling back to life in the filthy grove where it had been abandoned, crying in infinite pain and hatred.  

As I neared the ridge, I could hear a set of shuffling, twitchy half-steps, more like pained spasms than any sort of a gait.  And when I saw it. . . Oh gods. . . It's like. . . that face. . . THAT HORRIBLE FACE!

Mondaloa    Locations  (City)   (Plains)

Mondaloa is a name shared by both a city and a deity.  Mondaloa, the city, is built on layers of crypts and tombs that are far more opulent and majestic than the city that covers them.  Mondaloa, the deity, is the god of rest, peace, and death.  There is nothing Mondaloa desires more than to see the dead buried deep in their tombs where they can rest in honor and peace.  But there is trouble: something is torturing the dead of the city, and driving them to madness and rage.  Now, 500 years of honored ancestors are trickling into the city above, seeking blood and pain and death.

Deathwalkers    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Forest/ Jungle)

There's more to the Dembraava Wilds than just deformed beasts and unicorn husks.  In that place there are also men--or something very similar to men--and no one has ever recovered one of their corpses.

Surgeon Birds    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Swamp)

A big flock can suck a cow bloodless in a few minutes, yet your doctor shows up carrying one around a small birdcage in the tip of his staff.  Maybe you're better off just learning to live with the kidney stones. . .

Dendrognaths    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)

Stay out of the woods.  It's not a place for men.  Not anymore.

Lady Evica    NPCs  (Campaign)   (Religious)

Lady Evica is one of the prides of the Hesayan Church--it shows that even monstrous, overtly sexual, colossal mermaids can be brought to worship in Iasu's light.  Except not really.

Mordanfey    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)

Only after the unicorn hunts ended did the people realize that the unicorns were not returning. Many were saddened to discover that they had killed the last unicorns.  Some wept.

But when they returned many long years later, many more would weep.

The Staff of Seryl    Items  (Wand/Staff/ Arcane)   (Magical)

Many magic staffs shoot rays of disintegrating acoustics or summon laser elementals.  The Staff of Seryl gets you pregnant. 

Unless you are a dude, of course.

The Madness of Avool    Society/ Organizations  (Knowledge/Lore)   (World Wide)

How a disgruntled con man managed to kill hundreds, become a saint among death cults, and create plagues of monsters.  All by writing a pamphlet.

Veglins    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Underground)

Veglins are fungus-goblin hybrids with a unique life cycle, all of whom are inflicted with inescapable racial dreams.  Their biology and psychology are product's of an ancient, evil wizard's plan to get someone else to build his hideouts for him.

Strange Love Affair

       By: rickster

Ursula is a were-bear; she and Stewart, the bailiff of a rural feudal estate, are lovers, sharing all their secrets as lovers often do. Recently something has been taking livestock. *He* must deal with suspicions that a bear is involved (one has been seen nearby...): *she* must defend herself if it is revealed (perhaps by a jealous suitor, perhaps accidentally) that she is a lycanthrope. The adventurers might be called in to track the hungry beast(s) and discover her secret, but be able to reveal that the culprits are a small pack of wolves that has moved in to the area. The adventurers might earn the gratitude of both Ursula and Stewart, depending on what they reveal, and to whom.
