Thank you, anonymous.
Just what I was going to say. Your characters seem very one-dimensional because they have no defects.

Don't get discouraged, though. I didn't have that great a start, either.

By the way, you didn't have to say 'her mother' ever time, you could've just said 'she': "one day when her mother left to go get some magical items her mother never returned. Now at the age of 20 she searches for her mother and for the person who kidnapped her." Go to Comment

Kay. Like I said, don't get discouraged. Just go with it.

Slow down, turbogenics.
Drop the controller.
Step away from Final Fantasy X.

Now, where are the defects in this character? The character is nothing but good things. It's somewhat unrealistic in this way. Perhaps just something, like a weakness to pain, or an intense fear of bugbears, or something like that...

Interesting start though, Holystone. Go to Comment

An interesting idea, but I don't play D&D. What do the various colored arrows do ("as per prismatic wall", which I assume is a D&D spell)? Go to Comment

That's the whole point. Besides, if the players were intending to cross the desert, they should have been ready for it. I never said it was an easy task. Go to Comment

Doesn't that seem like the way. The first plot in a series I make, and everyone likes it. But the second one fails utterly. It makes me sad.... Go to Comment

Right.

Not that it all really matters. It is less of a plot than a disturbing little interlude in the course of a larger adventure into Daemonland. Go to Comment

It's more of an idea, but it can be improved.

The cliche "Evil for Evil's Sake" kinda guy is just boring. Leave evil for evil's sake to Demons, who are it's epitome.

Nice start though, terra Nova. Go to Comment

First, the PCs think that it's just the ogres pissing in the stream. But they learn from a local wizard that running water eliminates pollution. Then, they discover that the ogres have dammed up the stream, for some reason.... Go to Comment

Pearl Spider Economics

       By: Murometz

These rare, fist-sized spiders do not make webs, but rather excrete secretions which harden upon contact with air. These "droppings" resemble barley-sized spider eggs, or even lustrous pearls, once the slime coating them, dries up. In fact, dried Pearl Spider "drops" are indistinguishable from the marine varieties produced by mollusks, and hence of identical value on the open market!

Several centuries ago, they were studied by naturalists, and several observations were made. Firstly, was that these spiders "lay" these pearls for no apparent or discernible "natural" reason, and secondly, the naturalists had discovered that the more these spiders ate or were fed--and they were true omnivores--the larger the spider pearls came out.

A cottage industry began. Enterprising merchants hunted and collected these creatures across the lands, erecting spider-farms for the manufacture of Spider Pearls. It wasn't long before someone got the idea to force-feed the spiders, ala foie gras geese, and soon, the fattened spiders began pooping out pearls of great size! (relatively speaking). The regular pearl market came to disarray, and prices and value fluctuated wildly.

[b]Plothook[/b] The Mermen Mercantile Alliance hires the party to eradicate all terrestrial Pearl Spider Farms!
