Just ruin the bridge and let them stay in. If the thousands of warriors lock themselves up and you prevent them from breaking out, you don't have to battle them AT ALL.
Many fortresses are meant to guard more than just the people within... Go to Comment
If you want treasure from an impenetrable fortress, it is easier to send thieves or a band of adventurers (=thieves) to do the job. Battling 15 000 paladins holed up in a castle? Not my idea of a well-spent time ;p Go to Comment
Dear Princess, that is called 'criticism'. He's not being abusive nor rude, he just plainly pointed out the flaws of this indeed rather weak post.
Am I abusing my freedom of speech if I say a movie is boring? Hardly so.
If a speech is boring, I will either leave or point out its lack of interesting content.
By posting here, all members subject their works to the judgement of others - it would serve no one if we talked like: "Oh, forgive me my intrusion, but in my opinion, though irrelevant it may be to you, the post about the Haven Fortress could use improvement, no insult intended." Go to Comment
What will we get next? Griffon? Hydra?
the only problem with implementing such an item is that with less-than-perfect players, it would lead to endless debates about whether the character's acts are still within the bounds of VIRTUE.
anyway, I sure like it. Two thumbs up, plus happy smile on my face :D Go to Comment
Interesting. A character with understandable goals ... why let others - fools, gluttons and cretins - run things when he can do much better, furtherin the common good, and as one says, one cannot make an omelette without smashing a few eggs.
Of course, some people may be horrified by his way of seeing peasants as numbers on paper, and rivals just obstacles to be overcome (but I guess he likes it when they put up at least SOME fight)...
A very interesting character, but you COULD have omitted the Yu-gi-oh reference, to be honest :D 4/5 Go to Comment
Tell me... the S.O. of a friend of mine will assault any chocolate she sees with a flying leap, and does not break off squares like normal people do ... she BITES the chocolate off, and STUFFS her face with it. 200g in one session is NOT unusual. Go to Comment
Imagine finding a piece at the lairs of your most debased enemies, getting used to it...and them, by accident, stumbling upon one in the private rooms of your employer, betrothed or close f(r)iend. Muhaha, I guess. Nice! Go to Comment
but remember ... fear leads to anger ... and anger leads to the dark side.. *laughs* I guess the other shamen will become even more evil as their attempts at removing Irad continue to fail... Go to Comment
Now, the Academy would be a purrrfect employer for a band of itinerant thugs... eh, adventurers. Fetch me a pink cockatrice, some dragon menstrual blood and the left eye of Vecna, will you?
Wizardly intrigue, magical accidents (Resident Evil! ... or Half-Life) could take place here, as well as being the ideal place to send that kid you got from the liaison with the black dragon a while ago.
Also the ideal place to find a few rarer items, and rarer people. One of the few places where a 'weird' PC (half-unicorn half-treant half-whatever) could really find a home.
Though: what does set it apart from all the OTHER magic academies? Go to Comment
