A god must have imagination to create, and what is imagination but a waking dream?

Come, learn from the greatest mage of all, who lies dormant in the chambers of the temple...and bring back the dream t'was lost...

Very good one 5/5 Go to Comment
The Music box of Mordalin
Items  (Home/ Personal)   (Villanous)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-11 04:36 AM
I just wonder ... if more could be made, the conquest of darkness might be difficult to stop.
This has got good potential, (a plus for being a creepy music box, not a sceptre or crown etc.) but I'd welcome if it was fleshed out more. Go to Comment

I like the way Siren has made the wyld personality impact on her choices (wolves mate for life, pumas don't...)
I certainly am glad that a piece of my work has sparjked such a good post. I guess in one of the next adventures my PCs have to brave, a young lady named Alia will show up. Go to Comment
The Mask of the White Witch
Items  (Clothes)   (Cursed)
EchoMirage's comment on 2009-04-16 05:38 AM
Somehow, it seems to me that only the beauty effect and the perception twisting are necessary for this item to function - the stench and especially pain it causes are somewhat superfluous; I'd actually omit the pain bit, as it can ruin an adventure revolving around the mask. Go to Comment
Magenta Rose
Items  (Other)   (Campaign Defining)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-09 02:37 PM
From the text i did not discern ... does it do anything special? Like thriving when the elves and humans are at peace, or withering when armies march to war? Go to Comment
The Pen of the Fox
Items  (Tools)   (Magical)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-09 03:57 AM
a, it is too powerful an item... even today, the war between forgers and mints/banks goes on and on - perhaps it should make forging easier, or have you acquire a large sample of writing or something else from the person whose writing you have to forge. So, it falls in the same category as 'Boots of Ultimate Stealth' or 'Nipple Ring of Total Invulnerability'.
b, It was made by a magician. Okay, it happens to a lot of items, but ... ther'e nothing special to its creation process.
c, It has got no quirks, and thus is not different from all those other 'Pens of Perfect Forgery' Go to Comment

Btw., did you name the mage 'Pubis' on purpose? You know it means 'genitals' in latin...? Go to Comment
The Troll Nose Ring
Items  (Jewelry)   (Non-Magical)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-08 03:54 AM
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

EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-11 04:21 AM
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
NPCs  (Campaign)   (Political)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-05 04:50 AM
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.

Kellen Tavador
NPCs  (Minor)   (Combative)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-05 04:44 AM
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

Ruha Goo
Items  (Potion)   (Combat)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-11-30 06:41 AM

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

A plague has hit the local area.

In humans it affects only the most vulnerable, the children and the very old, and even than it's little more than a summer cold. 24 hours of sniffles and then it's gone, barely noticeable really.

To sheep however it is fatal and the whole economy of the area is in serious trouble. If this keeps up the area could well be facing famine.

Somebody (enter the PCs) must find the rare herbs needed to make a cure.
