Btw., did you name the mage 'Pubis' on purpose? You know it means 'genitals' in latin...? Go to Comment

Certainly an interesting piece ... a tiny ring with a great impact (a brownie point for including its relevance for the social ranking of trolls) Go to Comment

A 'mushroom' is just a special sort of fungus, Sentinel... Go to Comment

Well - just to fill you in...
When you see a champignon, that's not the true fungus. Its true self lies beneath the ground, it's called the 'mycel'... a tapestry of fungus threads.
The mushroom you see above ground is just the fungus' means of procreation, meant to strew spores far and wide. So, when you order a Pizza Funghi, you are actually munching the fungus' ... pubis ;) Go to Comment

She does not stir sympathy in my heart, to speak true - a woman unthankful, discontent, without a real goal in life, short-sighted and selfish... many a promising man was brought down by the likes of her.
Beauty is wasted on her, every man's affection as well, and most of all, all the water limes she picked.

Actually an antagonist to PCs - they might need a hero to do something, but her petty demands are dragging him down.

Still, she is tragic: The only valuable thing she has, love to Avoti, is slowly slipping away from her.

Welll, I personally would add:
*More personality
*People who influenced the course he took
*More history
*Past relationships who can still interfere with his actions today (golems, demons, dragons ... all don't age and can still be around) Go to Comment

From a certain angle, they might seem primitive, but aren't they just seeking a release, being ... free?

This is intended for a setting with a rather animistic worldview. Go to Comment

Small metal items...
like lockpicks. Hairpins. Small daggers. Keys. Files. Screwdrivers. He likes nifty stuff like that himself, and collects it ... while of little use in nature, he managed to learn a few new tricks since he started living in the city, like "food lying around was laid there for SOME reason" or "how to kick a groin - selfdefense in three easy lessons". Having nifty stuff handy is but another of them. Go to Comment

The Black Spear
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Campaign Defining)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-03 05:19 AM
This item shoul be used only in a campaign where the objective is to stave off the return of the dragons - in all other campaigns, it removes the respect and fear the dragons should evoke in all who face them, or just see them flying overhead.

I just wonder - what is the dark god doing with all the dragons in his realm? Perhaps his aid was not all that selfless.

A good one. 4/5 Go to Comment

Other side effects could include exhaustion after use, and general emaciation - while it could reduce appetite, it makes the body spend far more energy than usually.

Well, it has got no background at all, and is not that different from all those "ignores armour and is nasty" items.
Bad one. Go to Comment
The Green Sword
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-11-29 02:39 PM
Actually .. a good and decent item, with an intersting story, a tool of balance.
Less suited for campains where NPCs range all shades of gray,and the pure white and midnight black are rare.
I'd give a 3,5 - I rate a 3, and beg the next one who rates to improve his rating by one point...

What could prove interesting: whatif the sword collects all souls, or replaces those captured with new ones... if it kills one more time, the oldest victim is set free to travel to the afterlife, while the new one must dwell in it.
Also to be considered, what if only a good person can call upon a good victim and vice versa, or, for a twist, what if only a good person can call an evil victim? Who, reluctantly, must serve, to the letter of his master's wishes... Go to Comment

I think that being unconventional and caring for people is a weakness itself, given the deadly environment of the court.
As well as that, the men whose game she's playing might resent her intrusion upon their territory... she's walking a thin line. Go to Comment

Rare metal from northern trolls, where a lizardman would freeze his buttocks off. Very credible.
He's not a person now, just a generic aggressive lizard.
Whatabout the impact his twin brother had (to have) on his life?

A weapon of mas destruction used without means to control it - does it remind us of something? With nuclear, biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction at our command, we must learn reason, lest we too perish under a stormshroud.

Paradoxically, mages could use the area for negotiations, as none of them would dare to cast a spell there... Go to Comment

A friendly human hunter has a talk with you about what you are doing here, and how is the weather. He advises you to not disturb the animals, tend to any fire you set, etc. This is actually a werewolf checking his territory, and if you are not to his liking, he may ambush you with his pack later.
