Well, it's not to my taste, but it's an alright idea. I am curious to know what a Howler Demon is, and the backstory leaves some thing to be desired. Go to Comment

I think it's a very well-thought-out look into the realities of space combat, though I would say that space combat probably wouldn't be all that fast... It'd be sloooooow. You'd probably never even see your enemy.

But still, I think it's great. Go to Comment

It's definitely interesting. And I think bat-like creatures are a bit more interesting sometimes than say a dragon-like or bird-ish beast. Go to Comment

Great Cthulhu!
I am adopting the above ideas for golems in Ageratos, absolutely!

Can you imagine how cool it would be for players to go up against such a golem? They expect a dull, boring man made of stone or something...
What they get is gruesome amalgamation, a thin human skin stretched over iron muscles with copper veins. There is no head- instead, there is a warrior's helm sewed into the flesh, and filled with a mass of tentacular tubes for a head-structure. The stomach contains an iron box containing the magical tablets which animate it. And it is somewhat intelligent, and moves fast as lightning, and is incredibly strong!

How cool is that?! Go to Comment

Perfect for a group of tough mercenary bastards like our heroes. Everything Manfred said. Love it!

My only issue is the magically-reinforced back cliff wall... But I am allowed to change that. If you ask me, it's a pretty mundane use for something that's meant to be awe-inspiring and, well, magical. But that's just my personal preference, and it's not even a major part of the plot, so to hell with it! Go to Comment

In a high canyon in the mountains, the players find a skeleton in a cage suspended from a pole. A few miles further, they find another, and a third contains a partially rotten corpse. The fourth contains a living man who looks as if he hasn't eaten in days. Turns out to be the local way of punishing criminals. Go to Comment

The only thing I didn't like was that the king's name was... Corleone?!
I'm all for the Godfather, but not in my fantasy, thank you.

Good list, nice references...
Though I might say that people are very uncharitable to the memory of the Cardinal Richelieu! He was not the scheming evil devilish character everybody paints him as, unless you view him through the lens of the moralistic, antinationalistic views of the aristocracy of his era. He was a patriot, first and foremost, and did what any modern politician does every day. Go to Comment

Well, "BUH-mah-kar" works... it's really up to you how you want to pronounce it, though I was thinking something more like "b'MAW-kar" Go to Comment

A rather large armed group slowly walks the road. Unless you get to see what they transport, you could think it is a caravan with expensive goods, or the soldiers escort someone important. But this is a prisoner transport, on the way to mines, criminals on their way for punishment.

The soldiers may be willing to talk, the captain will have a few questions on you and the road, but they will keep distance, and part soon.
