Thinking about what Mourngrymn said at the end of his post, that might be something for an adaptation: use the campaign's villian to do this. That way there is a personal stake in it for both sides. The villian has a very good reason to imprision the heros within his mind to leech off of them, and the heros have a very good reason to try and kill the villian again. That makes it easier to push them in the right direction. Go to Comment

Go Coldforged gaming! *side note to AG* Mayhaps we should encounter the Dreamer Cult in the forum game once it gets back together? I know that I certainly would like to see some of this stuff work. I've always liked the concept of it, even back on the original site. Go to Comment

El mucho wow. I find this submission quite interesting, not the least of which is the turn-around assassin. I, for one, never thought the woman was the assassin until she murdered the necromancer. The weapon itself is quite interesting and unique, however, I'm not entirely sure why it gained the properties that it did. I understand how, but not the why. Was the assassin using it to manipulate the necromancer?

Good sub, but it left a few questions in my mind. Go to Comment

A very good adaptation of history to suit our own worlds. After all, why make something new when you can adapt something real? 4/5 Go to Comment
golden golem soul coin

Chaosmark's comment on 2005-11-08 04:09 PM
Perhaps this was the result of some erratic wizard who happened to want a way to store and protect his money, but didn't want to have it all stuck in one place where a thief could get at it easily. Hence the money golem. The spells? Well, the wizard didn't quite want any thieves pummelling his defenseless golem because they all have the same spells. So he varied things up. Truth be told, this sounds like a Corvus item... Go to Comment

The air had grown chill the minute they descended into the strange valley, which was unmarked on any of their maps. It was so strange here, devoid of animal life and completely silent. The horses were nervous the entire journey through the vale. As they set about to collect firewood for the campfire they could hear their own voices as dim echoes through the eerie silence.

The food didn't taste anything that evening and their sleep was cold and troubled by nightmares. While they are clearing camp the next morning, one of them stumbles over a piece of stone jutting out of the ground nearby the horses. On closer inspection there seems to be runes engraved into the polished surface. The symbols true meaning is no more known among mere mortals and if they decide to dig deeper, they will discover that it is an ancient altar buried within the soil.

Any historically oriented party member will recognize the largest symbol to be the insignia of the powerful warlock who ruled this realm several centuries ago. At their departure from the area, something will seem amiss with one of the party members and all will remember the stories of the warlock's thousand curses.
