85) Find yourself a wind tunnel (an open field in the midwest is an acceptable substitute). Try walking forward against the wind. Imagine running and fighting (or casting spells) while dealing with this sort of distraction. Fighting that Wind Wizard doesn't seem so hot now, does it?
86) Go take a first aid course of some sort (epic bonus points for paramedic training). See exactly how badly people can screw themselves up with simple little things. Imagine trying to treat horrifying wounds with limited supplies, in an non-sterile environment, at night, by the light of a campfire (or candles). Go to Comment
They also have the Chrono Trigger soundtrack, which in my opinion is one of the best game soundtracks ever. That probably why the game was such an awesome one. There's usable stuff across the entire CD. Horror, heroic, love, sorrow, action, all of it is there. I know that when I run a Tyren game, it'll use some of those songs as background music.

I love this thread. There's so much variety, I'm shocked we don't have more and more scroll entries. I myself can't push much of an opinion, since I haven't run a table-top game. Ever. Lots of ideas for one though...
I think we're looking for a slightly longer version of Short and Sweet: fully fleshed out plots within a restrictive word count; not, however, that restrictive. About 3 times the size seems right, since these are plots only.
In his defense, this was before Muro's sub, so AG was here first. I doubt this will ever make it out of in-work. Go to Comment
I read these a while ago, thought them nifty, and dismissed them (without even a vote, apparently). No longer! I find these to be one of the most unique races I've ever seen. Very nicely done Echo. Now we just need to get more submissions that relate to them. Perhaps a post or two on their society, history, origins, and notable persons? Go to Comment
Interesting. This very much reminds me of the Dresden Files system of magic. (Shoutout: the DF roleplaying game is nearing completion) For those who are unfamiliar with the books, the main character is a wizard, and the way magic works is by force of will. However, if you have a large chunk of power, but little control, you need a focus to work your magic through. The focus 'focuses' your raw power into something usable. All in all, an interesting system that keeps you from needing to learn 500,000 different spells and modifiers for those spells. Go to Comment
