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
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...
The plot progresses!
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
A man is arrested for mass murder and found to be insane. Piles of corpses were found on his property, neatly stacked torsos with the skin peeled off and the limbs removed. The man readily admits the work is his, though he claims he was only chopping down trees, removing their branches, debarking them, and then stacking them to season.
The man may have swung the axe but it was a Druid who caused the delusion. This Druid is still on the loose and likely to repeat the crime. In time he may get more creative in his "punishments."
