Two thumbs up. A very thoughtful and intelligent quest.
You could also include philosophical/theological debate because of an incompatibility of beliefs the warrior held in his life and those of the Vale guardians. I am moved, and grant a 5. Go to Comment

Hey, this is positively cute! And can be lots of fun - especially the escape clause is great.

btw., didn't Squingle think about moving far, far away and changing his name into something like Max Power the Unfathomable? Just nitpicking... :D Go to Comment

I guess dear mOsOg was over-reacting ... some of my posts I thought earth-shattering and great recieved 3s and so on ... yes, I was not happy, but then, by posting an item here, I subject it to the judgment of others, whatever it may be Go to Comment

EchoMirage's comment on 2004-09-21 03:18 AM
A priesthood of death can be essential in easing the fear of death or dying, and helping overcome the pain ... they could even be experts at concocting drugs to ease pain, or help the dying spend their last days in a pleasant dream. "It does not hurt. You just fall asleep" ... and let me tell you, the relatives would be much happier to see a smiling great-grandfather in his deathbed, than one half-mad with the pain of cancer devouring his body.
They also could teach the old the way of the underworld, and how to plead before the final judgment, or for a better reincarnation.

While Sima's assassinations are reasonable (she sends them to be judged by Anubis for their misdeed), I rather doubt that she'd murder them brutally - I think she'd make one clean cut, or use a garotte, or poison, but she would not want to see them suffer. Go to Comment

Excellent. A villain should have a good reason to be so. Dehumanized mad killers are boring, while Forge has a vision... through evil bring forth good, through death life. A rotten forest that burns down only fertilizes the soil for new growth, right?

EchoMirage's comment on 2005-05-04 02:33 AM
Well he is interesting, but quite difficult to interact with. There is a limited number of purposes he can be used for...
He can be: scary, pitiable, repulsive
The plots are: buy his service, protect his victim to be, and: help him be free.
Certainly a good alternative assassin, and a strong image that will burn in player's minds...

A thought... it will display the nearest valuable thing ... valuable to WHOM? Unless the user has freat self-control and wisdom ,it might show teddies lost by (now helplessly sobbing) children, displaced wedding rings - or even a heap of dung, if the patch picks up the needs of a dung-beetle or fly. It was meant to serve Mr. Evil Eye after all... Go to Comment

Thanks, thanks a lot! Next, we want to see... the Paladin... yesss, my precioussss, the palladin.

As for Esther - she is not as lost as Regdar and Mialee. It could even be a great roleplaying opportunity for a PC priest, pally or monk, either a very reasonable man or a strong lady, teaching Esther that the perfection consists of an unity between mind and body, Just bodily perfection is not enough.

Or, the PCs could try to achieve a delicate mission, with combat being absolutely useless, even detrimental to it, and with Esther interfering.

A well-written char, thus 4 of 5 Go to Comment

Interesting. Most interesting. A little uber, but a great way to kill a power gamer... the monk could be an undead, but unthreatening. Just holding the lantern. Why? :D Go to Comment

Well then, that's the risk, isn't it? hehehehehehe... no, I mean, I'm rather hesitant in killing off PCs, but THIS would be amusing. For the GM, of course. Go to Comment

you know, this is the same tune you played to Regdar. I know, they fit well together, but the similarities are too great (most of all the 'a wizard doing most of the spellcasting for her') - I'd say she might be a competent wizard, prone to flaunting her power and humbling male wizards ('you call THAT demon summoning?! I will show you the real stuff...' - this could lead to a great plot is a few seconds later, she said 'oh, ... crap') Go to Comment

Laugh-out-loudly! I certainly enjoyed this one, moreso given the fact that you used the default DnD warrior's name :D

I certainly will try to use this one to put a dent into the pride of my PCs one day.

Hey, most magic items will be made by wizards, as there is little risk of Joe the Farmboy suddenly enchanting his plow. Thus, the 'wizard made it' is the default setting, and unless you want the very creation of the item to be special, assume 'a wizard made it'.

But the spin on the classic story is great! We should make more such things, like screwing up Snow White or The Little Mermaid... Go to Comment
