Agar's comment on 2003-11-18 08:13 PM
Good posting, but I would like some details explained more.

What do you mean by "slam" attack? Is that a slap, or a ground pound or a body slam, or something else?

"serious penalty to anything effected by weight" - Does that mean the character can carry less equipment, or is more likely to snap part of an old bridge, or something else?

I also assume these gauntlets cannot be removed and are bonded to the wearer, otherwise, why would the character be considered a half golem? The inability to remove something might be considered by some to be a curse, but you might consider that to be a magical side effect.

In all, I like it. Go to Comment

This character is not really an original work. The character was mentioned breifly in the Earthdawn game, but never appeared in any scenerio I'd seen or was ever further fleshed out. This is my take on that character. Go to Comment

Agar's comment on 2003-11-07 03:29 AM
I also want to learn more, assuming your done posting what story you had.

What where the swords used for before? What makes them heirlooms? How did Hathil prove his fighting skills? If he's the head ranger, why doesn't he have some rangers under his command? Do both swords do the same thing or do they have seperate powers? Are the swords good? How can you tell and evil sword from a good one? Do swords that are good or evil have to be intelligent, have a soul, concience or otherwise; or can inanimate objects be good or evil? Will these swords scorch evil rocks or twigs? Go to Comment

I'm just happy these swords don't kill anything in one strike.

I just want to know more about the background of the item. Good submissions are thought out, they have stories surrounding them. They aren't something just smacked out on a keyboard in between classes. Take some time to develope ideas and the submissions will show how much better that time was spent. Go to Comment
Staff of Dragoonias
Items  (Wand/Staff/ Arcane)   (Villanous)
Agar's comment on 2003-11-05 02:45 AM
How do the dragons and griffions react when the control ends? Just confused beasts that fly off puzzling over why they were leveling a town?

Internal, not "eternal", organs really aren't that sensitive. I mean, really, have you felt your kidneys flexing lately?

When the staff is "harful"??? as a dry stick and hit repeatedly, will it cause a slight bruise on the target, or will the staff get the bruise?

And please, spellcheck. I apologise if you're not a native english speaker, but your post is hard to read. Go to Comment

If your writing skills do in fact need no improvement, your time management does. Don't rush to put stuff up, either have the time to contribute, or do it when you do have the time.

Ring of Wit
Items  (Jewelry)   (Cursed)
Agar's comment on 2003-11-05 01:05 AM
Did anyone ever think to take the ring off, or did the mage live alone?

This might be a warning for players to check out magic items before just casting them about, but any party should be able to take care of anyone putting this on.

That doesn't mean it doesn't have uses. It'd be a great way to subdue a person for capture. Leave the ring for them to find, or as bait for pick pockets, or even present it to them as a token of respect. They put it on, and you have instant passivness from tweedle dum.

Other possiblities exist... Go to Comment
The Box That Cannot Be Opened
Items  (Other)   (Magical)
Agar's comment on 2003-11-05 03:05 AM
Great item manfred! Us vetrans showing how it should be done! Yhea!

Even if the player gives up on opening the box, they still have a one foot cube of unbreakable stuff. That could be put to use in remakable ways. They can't work it into anything more useful, mind you, but it has a purpose.

Some unintended uses could be:
Battering Ram head.
Jam the mechanism of a crushing trap.
Trebuche stone - if it's heavy enough.
Chopping block.
Maul head. -mauls are big mallets Go to Comment
Canteen Stones
Items  (Other)   (Magical)
Agar's comment on 2003-11-20 03:10 AM
I wonder if other types of stones exist that would affect things besides water. It could be useful, at least in a puzzle solving sense, to have other stones affect other elements. Maybe an air stone to hold in winds, a fire stone to hold fire, and an earth stone to hold, well, earth. How would the players react to a stone that would ooze dirt when squeezed?

This is still a great item and has many more possibilities. Go to Comment
Canteen Stones
Items  (Other)   (Magical)
Agar's comment on 2003-11-05 12:54 AM
I really like this item.

It's not too big, but could still be used to bash someone with. It's not made of anything too exotic or do anything to powerful, but it always of use to any character. It has plenty of possibilities that a creative DM could talior to his game.

One thing that I'd like to be cleared up though. The stone does not need to be immersed in a liquid to absorb it, just be in contact with it, so does it draw the liquid in like a vacume cleaner?

Some things DM's might consider doing could be alter how much the canteen stone can hold by a factor of what it's made out of. Ordinary rock would be the one gallon, but slate might hold two or three, marble could hold five to ten, a fist-sized chunk of quartz would carry quite a bit, precious stones would be ridiculously huge and hold a ridculious amount.

If the stones don't need to be squeezed by hand they could be used to create a running water system. Also, some interesting and creative effects could take place if they are broken, making them possible siege weapons as well.

This is an good example of how items should be. They can be more powerful or less, but those of you posting items of late should take note of this submission and use it as a benchmark. Go to Comment
Flute of Vaxtar
Items  (Art and Music)   (Heroic)
Agar's comment on 2003-11-05 02:36 AM
A good item, especially for bards.

What is the "falueth" song? What does that mean, and what does that do? Also, do you have some examples or tales of the tests of Vaxtar? Go to Comment
skull shuriken
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Combat)
Agar's comment on 2003-10-31 01:11 AM
I agree with Strolen and Captian, and I have some of my own observations to point out.

How much of a threat could this dragon be if he can be killed with throwing stars?

How mortally wounded could the mercenary be if he was assumedly far away throwing shuriken?

How can a mercenary in possesion of throwing stars that never miss the heart ever be in such bad times he needs to sell said throwing stars?

How mortally wounded can a guy be when he can still manage to skin and masterfull carve a dragon's skull?

This is an interesting, but illogical and broken item. I do not like it, but I DO like the original thought put into it. A little less munchkin, and a little more thought into character's abilities, and you could make a great item. Go to Comment
skull shuriken
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Combat)
Agar's comment on 2003-11-01 02:18 PM
Where to start?

Flinging a 10 inch star would be a good way of avoiding those nasty mortal injuries.

Shuriken are not 10 inches across, large ones are typically 4 inches wide.

Shuriken cannot be used like daggers, they have no handle of which to hold.

Please try to draw your inspirations from more than Final Fantasy video games. If you come across an idea you like, do some research into it to find out what it's about. Google is your friend.

Warhorn of the Forest Lords

I also want to know what a Forest Lord is, but I do like the outline of the concept so far.

The horns are allowed to be blown in the midst of battle, right? Or else why load them with herbs to harrass the enemy with? Go to Comment

Good item and a good way to get the players to go where you want them. Have somebody they'd believe tell them the marker stone is in some treasure or with someone they want found, and off they go. Go to Comment

How bad a riding check to they have to make to leave their horses saddled overnight? Does the fern still use sunlight for food or does it scavange food from travelers? If it is smart enough to make wrong turns on a map, can it write or communicate at all, and what would it have to say? Go to Comment

They do grow old and die of old age, how competent they are is up to you, as is their veiws on society and culture.

One small thing I considered but forgot to post: The mist effect only works on the way the cells interact with each other to heal each other. Otherwise, single celled oraganisims would also be as hard to destroy and the people would either have super immune systems or be carrying superpowered diseases to let loose when they leave their land. Either way it's not a good thing to have or encounter, so single celled organisms and bacteria get to die here just as they would anywhere else. Go to Comment
Gloves of Immaculate Grooming
Items  (Clothes)   (Magical)
Agar's comment on 2003-10-17 11:21 PM
Don't forget getting rid of those incriminating notes and plans. Just wipe the paper and Presto! Could rather inconvienient, and maybe illegal to own them, in countries useing paper money.

Why stop at gloves? Larger versions could prove just as useful as the gloves. Like a travelling cloak, always appear at your destination looking fresh, or a saddle blanket, never worry about grooming your horse, not to mention the multiple versions that could find use in a house of ill repute. >:) Go to Comment
