I find this to be an idea that is partially fleshed out, and I like where it's going, but it doesn't quite get there. It doesn't seem to be finished. It might be the lack of plot hooks. While this might be interesting to include in some campaigns, without ideas on how to use it it doesn't come across as useful.

I can see more uses for these things now than I did originally. I do like the concept, and could see these being a good investigation source in worlds where magic users can't sense the magic of others easily (if at all). Go to Comment

I believe the entire point of this is to insert it as a random background piece into your game world, to give your players a laugh. And in that respect, it works. Go to Comment

Woo. Magic gnats to annoy spellcasters. As a general rule, I would think that these and manna fleas should be immune to bug-warding spells. Go to Comment

I know that there are inherent physics problems with doing things as said in this post, but since we're all suspending our sense of disbelief when considering extra-large creatures anyways, lets let our simplistic imaginations do the work for us.

Well, assuming that such a thing is even possible (which it isn't without magic or illusion), one would probably be able to take the strength that an animal or insect might normally have and multiply it by how large it grew.

A normal ant is said to be able to pick up 50x it's body weight. So if an ant were able to grow to ten times the size of normal, it's strength would be ten times as great as normal, making it able to pick up 500x it's own weight. So, if you wished to know how much a spider could pick up at 8', simply figure out what the size difference is, how much it can normally lift, then multiply the two together for your result.

Simplistic? Yes, but will it work in a fantasy setting without too many problems? Most likely. Go to Comment

Indeed. Moonhunter's google-foo would be helpful as of now, for mine powers are not strong...*cries* Go to Comment

A rather basic frame tale, opening up all the possibilities of the Garage Sale from Hell items/threads/etc. But, since it can be used for other stuff too, it gets a little extra boost of vote. Go to Comment

Still liking this, years later. Great idea, totally making an appearance with my next mage PC. (What, you thought NPCs were the only ones who want immortality?)

Man. The GSFH codex is a large one, and one I know almost everyone on Strolen's likes. So why is there only one vote on this entry?

I think there could be more done with it than just these few items though. Nice job on them though. Go to Comment

Of Metals and Their Uses
~by Eye Yorn Darksmith

This 56 page phamplet is one that is quite useful to a smithy and wanted by most, yet hard to come by due to each copy being handwritten. The author is one Eye Yorn Darksmith, a certain psuedonym. While not willing to publish with his true name, the contents of the phamplet are very informative, listing almost every metal known to civilization, their properties (as ascertained by him), and their common/not so common uses within a mere 44 pages.
The final 12 pages list some mythological metals and their supposed properties, as well as a few potential applications should the metals truly exist.
This is a fairly recent work, dating back only a few decades. Go to Comment

There are a few literal, word for word scroll repeats here that should be pruned. Advertisements Touching a Holy War, Of Scientific Arguments, and a few others. Go to Comment

Coupling the Flows: Power Equations 101
This is a beginning workbook for trainees in the magical arts. It teaches basic magical theory, including the scientific, mathematical side of magic. It also includes problems for the reader to work through on their own, power equations for simple spells and charms. A copy of this book will invariably be found in the library of any wizard or former apprentice. Go to Comment

No, I'm referring to the fact that there are actual, literal repeats. i.e. there are multiple scroll entries that are exactly the same. Go to Comment

Such is the unfortunate tragedy of transference from forum to site. Such a great piece of work is now comment and vote-less. But fear not, for while the dragons might return within the next thousand years, this post shall not lack a comment nor a vote for that long! 5/5 for such extensive and creative work. This is the sort of thing that will really flesh out your world if used properly. Go to Comment

Bumpage, for one of the best forum transfers around. An HoH as well. I wish there could be more added to this, but I'm at a lack for what. Go to Comment
