Moleskin
Lifeforms  (Unique)   (City/ Ruin)
Dossta's comment on 2012-09-14 04:44 PM
Eugh. A horridly splendid submission, though I wish I hadn't read it before lunch. It's the little things -- the excellent narration, the fact that Moleskin doesn't kill the women sent to him but does arguably much worse, the fur instead of the scales . . . it all comes together brilliantly to create a thoroughly repulsive villain. I wonder if he has a greater plan, coming slowly together over the centuries. Perhaps further fratricide? Killing off the rest of the healthy brood seems like the sort of petty activity he'd engage in. Well done! Go to Comment
30 Prisoners
NPCs  (Extras)   (Criminal/Espionage)
Dossta's comment on 2013-04-04 11:30 AM
I was expecting fantasy, but this is a good list nonetheless. You might consider changing the title, though, to 30 Modern Prisoners or something in order to avoid confusion. Go to Comment
What Has It Got in Its Pocketses?

Very useful sub.  I would like to see it organized a bit better, and the randomizer link updated, but overall I love this!

Ullhyr T'Lar-Yin
Dungeons  (Underground)   (Style)
Dossta's comment on 2010-12-07 10:44 AM


I had to ruminate on this one for awhile, but after chewing through the vivid imagery and "oohing" over the biting dialogue, I find that I wouldn't want to send an adventuring group down here unless they were armed . . . to the teeth.  (ok I'll stop now).



Seriously, though, fantastic dungeon.  Tightly themed, extremely useable and macabre as hell.  The only thing I didn't like were the insta-kill dragon maw "Passage of Teeth".  A solid 5/5, and I don't give those out that often.



Wins my patented "Smashing Sub of the Day" award.  Have an HoH.

30 Brigands
NPCs  (Extras-Horde)   (Combative)
Dossta's comment on 2013-04-03 06:41 PM
Kinda surprised I hadn't voted on this one yet, especially since I had long-since printed it out and added it to my GM's binder. It's a bit darker than many of the 30s, but that is appropriate given the material. Wishing you'd added an entry for the brigand leader himself, though. Go to Comment

31. The Obsessed Artist

This silent woman is possessed of a stunning natural gift for drawing, and is as likely to spend her meager earnings on colored chalk as she is food.  During the summer, she creates fantastic murals on the walls of businesses, the undersides of bridges, and even in a clear area of the market square if she can get there before the vendors.  Though the authorities dislike her flagrant "vandalism", she is a favorite among the common folk.  She survives the winter by creating portraits with chalk and paper for a few coppers apiece.

Uuthli Solen, The Island of Sapphires

A vividly imaginative setting.  I love the history of the place, and was saddened by the islanders' plight.

30 Stalwart Bands
NPCs  (Extras-Horde)   (Travelers)
Dossta's comment on 2013-04-03 11:30 AM
What a great idea for a 30! My absolute favorite here is the group of Poseurs. I would have them taking all the credit for a bunch of the party's accomplishments, thus setting them up as instant rivals. Would be good if at least one of them was a Magnificent Bastard to boot.

One suggestion: I would really really love it if you included a short list of "also known as" names for each group. For instance, I don't really see a group calling themselves "The Poseurs" or "The Madcaps" (though those are apt headings for each archetype). Names like "The Dashing Dandies" or "The Black Hearts" or "The Order of Thoth" are more in-game appropriate and would make a really nice addition. Go to Comment
40 Thieves Guild Missions
Plots  (Hired)   (Side-Quest)
Dossta's comment on 2012-09-27 12:37 PM
I found this submission to be exceptionally useful -- not just to a group of thieves, but to a party who needed to run some errands for a crime boss in order to gain her confidence. I basically needed to run them around the city for awhile and test their morality, and this list was perfect. It probably fuelled 2 or 3 gaming sessions. I also love that it's a 40 (after the 40 thieves) rather than a 30. Nice touch! Go to Comment
30 More Princesses
NPCs  (Extras-Horde)   (Political)
Dossta's comment on 2013-04-01 05:01 PM
Very, very good. There are a few repeats here from 30 Princesses (like the Duck and the Hummingbird), but the personalities differ enough for it not to matter much. Really loving this series of bird-inspired subs! Go to Comment

Good, but a little too heavy on the cliches and tropes for my tastes. Would love to see a few more original entries. Go to Comment

Dossta's comment on 2013-04-01 02:13 PM
Most of these made me smile, and I can definitely see myself dipping into this list sometime in the future. The only two who I felt could us a little fleshing out, at least in appearance, were the parakeet and the sparrow. Average NPCs are perfectly acceptable, but it'd be nice to have a little more to use in a game. Go to Comment
30 Necromancers
NPCs  (Extras-Horde)   (Mystical)
Dossta's comment on 2013-03-26 05:09 PM
Of the NPC-centered 30s lists, this is quite possibly my favourite so far. I didn't think it was possible to come up with 30 unique types of necromatic personalities, but somehow you did. My absolute fav is also the Ghost Horse. I can think of a dozen ways to place him in a game and could probably base an entire adventure or two off of him. Go to Comment
Walking Through the Forest When...
Plots  (Travel)   (Encounter)
Dossta's comment on 2011-04-22 01:43 PM


An interesting set of random encounters.  Quite a few of them serve only to increase the atmosphere of a place, but I guess that can be useful for roleplaying purposes.

30 Manuscripts
Items  (Books and Scrolls)   (Non-Magical)
Dossta's comment on 2013-03-26 04:49 PM
Holy crap, this is an actual 32-in-1 submission. I am awed, sir, and inspired. While the books themselves were a little on the dry side, the articles they link to provide a wealth of information for the player who isn't content with just the blurb. I'll make sure to have a couple of these on hand for when that "special" player wanders into one of my games. Go to Comment
30 People in a Crowded Dockside Tavern
NPCs  (Extras-Horde)   (Travelers)
Dossta's comment on 2013-03-26 03:46 PM
Normally I don't like the multiple numberings, but you more than made up for it with the various groups of sailors. You can easily change the tone and mood of the place by mixing/matching these groups as you need. Only two nitpicks: first, I'd have liked a little more about the longshoremen, to distinguish them from the sailors. Second, I would have liked to see a few more womenfolk, as the only ones here were serving girls and prostitutes. Go to Comment
30 Courtiers

Dossta's comment on 2013-03-26 03:19 PM
Wait, why does the Blue Lord count for three? Is he a set of triplets or something, taking turns at court? :P Other than that numbering mix-up this is a good list, though not really a 30 (yet). Go to Comment
30 Tomes

Dossta's comment on 2013-03-26 03:02 PM
This is why I love 30s submissions so much. When I was actively running a game, I had several of these general-purpose lists printed out in my binder, ready to whip out at a moment's notice. This one is definitely making it to the binder for my next game. Go to Comment
