I would've said it before, but I just noticed: did you custom make those bills pictured at the bottom? Extra kudos for that gem. Go to Comment

Dozus's comment on 2012-12-19 06:40 PM
Very clever! An actually practical methodology for the burial and retrieval of pirate treasure. It's simple, straightforward, and quite employable in any setting.

Well done, sir. Hope to see more like this from you. Go to Comment

You should really make a "Gyde to ye Lands Surrounding Abodroc, and Oyer Regions" with all this pseudo-knowledge stuff.

What's a "crawling mountain"? Is it just a phrase that's above my head, or something different? Go to Comment

Wild accusations abound here. It's a nice bit of rumor for these strange folk. Go to Comment

Idea: A "30 100-word Subs" sub, that all follow the same theme. 3000 words, evenly divided, on a similar yet diverse topic. Go to Comment
Lifegiver; holy sword of Linn.

Dozus's comment on 2012-12-11 05:55 AM
Interesting. I think the story really illustrates your inspiration: the Grand Hero who comes charging in against the Undead Lord, waving a sword and shouting the names of his gods. I like that aspect, the corruption of (blindly naive) good.

As for its actual magic effects, it seems almost mundane from a necromancy standpoint. But that doesn't bother me much, as I like the story a lot. Khalran seems a very practical sort of lich, which I can appreciate. Go to Comment
The Way of Divine Wealth
Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (Regional)
Dozus's comment on 2012-12-10 10:45 PM
Kindred spirits, to a degree. Followers of the Way of Divine Wealth might see the usury Priests of Mammon practice as stifling commerce through excessive debts, though someone would praise the practice. They would also probably suggest charging a fee for usage of the churches, or at least setting up a shop or two within. Go to Comment

A neat challenge to your high-ranking PCs. It can be hard to get a devastating personage with an interesting story and setting, but you've given it a fair go. Go to Comment

Dozus's comment on 2012-12-08 04:48 PM
This has a nice, classic feel to it. I can envision this as a nice, low-mid level quest for a party. The detail you provide are very nice, but loose enough that it could be adapted for any setting (e.g., instead of a Taoist temple, it's an elven shrine that some sylvan elf clan is attacking). For a random-word sub, you've put together something very clean and usable. Go to Comment

Well-written, this reminds me of some dark comic book character for some reason. As SE said, she is very powerful for a teenager, but the writing's enough to keep me interested. Go to Comment

Clever. It does remind one of some of those 19th and early 20th century artistic societies. But with more corpses. Go to Comment
Non-Euclidean Architecture: Part 2

Dozus's comment on 2012-11-30 05:52 AM
Very nice! It does boggle the mind, but you explain it well enough to encourage usage.

Bonus points to someone who effectively creates a non-euclidian monster for a campaign. Go to Comment

The 1973 classic "Blacula" was on the other night. The title reminds, naturally, of that film.

They sound almost comical in appearance to me, begging for blood with their sideways, toothy smiles. Basically a humanoid hagfish vampire. I don't think anyone's made quite that combination before, so kudos to you. Go to Comment

Interesting take on stronger zombies. I wonder what might happen to a vampire who drank the stuff. Would he try to suck the steel from armor? Would it give him iron fangs? Go to Comment

Dozus's comment on 2012-11-26 07:02 AM
Gross. I like the imagery of a giant, armed worm crawling about, adding more dead to itself.

You mention necromancers making use of corpsemakers. Are they exclusively artificial undead, or can these creatures be naturally occurring? Go to Comment

You know, I had actually intended #2 here to be the standard: shrines are used but once, and are then merely stones. Never did state that, though, huh? Go to Comment

This is a worthy attempt to blend Street Fighter into the post-modern setting in a balanced, realistic way. Praiseworthy. Go to Comment

You realize a group of men is going right to you. The man in front has a hard determined look on his face, the two men behind follow him with some uneasiness. He stops before you, holding the handle of his sword in one hand, and slaps (choose person carefully) with leather gloves he carries in the other hand. "Rhadagald Thinvoice, I challenge You to a duel to dea..." Stopping abruptly, he realizes this is the wrong person.
