Woodwise was designed for a RuneQuest III campaign I ran many years ago. The sorcerer character wanted a familiar, and in RQ3, familiars can be designed in any of a million different ways. I made Woodwise to tie into an overarching plotline relating to the elves; ultimately it would be found out that there were elvish sorcerers who promoted the attack to seize the knowledge and lore of the Gray Seers, and then later fell into the study/worship of Chaos.



Woodwise's soul was the spirit of a daughter of the elf goddess Aldrya, twisted and warped through foul Chaos sorcery. I came up with a number of possible outcomes: Woodwise could become something of a rogue woodland element, supporting rebellious elves; the PCs coud end up on the run from the remaining elvish sorcerers, undying magical abominations; or, the PCs could try to restore the spirit of the daughter of Aldrya, truly an epic feat worthy of heroes.



I needed to write that better in the submission; ah well, I'll know better for next time.

BBQ World?

       By: Redgre

"The world has an immovable dark red sun in the centre of the sky that produces very little light. The heat is totally unbearable and the aroma of delicious cooking meat is in the air. To look around it appears as though you are surrounded by giant black mountains with no vegetation anywhere. The ground is soft and an oily liquid flows into your footprints. Travelling reveals nothing else."

Any character without some resistance to fire or heat is slowly being cooked. The ground if you haven't guessed it is the cooked meat.

I've wanted this world to be part of a dimensional hopping "chase". I thought maybe to populate this world with giant carnivorous beetles or perhaps this could be a "Nirvana" for deceased or living (but dimension travelling) fire dragons.

Perhaps I've just been grilling a little too much meat or perhaps there are some great ideas out there on how to spruce up the place. Any suggestions?
