You know, Sentinel, quantity does NOT equal quality.

And while the Drow aren't hopeless, munchkins from all over the world do the same to them as they do to vampires - dres them in black and play them POORLY.
You know what? A friend of mine made how many? at least 3... Drow assassins ... they all sucked.

Not that a Drow would work for mere money for some filthy human, mind you. They see themselves as the Ubermenschen, and will not deal with such filth unless they must, if I am correct.

Drow can make for great cultured adversaries, tragic player characters (even while avoiding the Drizzt clichee) and interesting NPCs... but the heartless Drow assassin is so plain boring that zzzzZZZZzzzz

I'd give a 1/5, but: somehow the page is crazy again and states that I've already voted. Weird. Go to Comment
Bromine Lake

There could be a lot of fun if someone diverted one of the rivers feeding the lake, or made a canal that would a good deal of the water to flow away.... or if an earthquake opened a canal to the sea...
Could make for a good plot - why yes, the water would be perfect to irrigate the BurntButtocks Desert, but we cannot scorch the world, now can we?

One thing to bore them all, one thing to chase them away
from the table of the GM they will by ennui be led astray.

I like how humble Saint Duncan was - and the message, that honest well-meaning and the will to do good work can leave a legacy.

EchoMirage's comment on 2005-04-05 03:40 AM
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

EchoMirage's comment on 2005-04-05 10:36 AM
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

EchoMirage's comment on 2005-06-24 02:38 AM
I always thought paladins were busy messing with worldly affairs all over the world: "Your goodness has been found not sufficient! Prepare to be smitten in a very holy way!"

So actually, I see them annoying -eh, aiding- the surrounding lands to no end :D 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
Chimeric Ring

EchoMirage's comment on 2004-09-03 07:41 AM
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
Prince Graeme
NPCs  (Major)   (Political)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-09-02 06:50 AM
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

Why? Since when? For whom?
This is a bare-bones character, more of an idea than a complete person. I, personally, will give the author time to fill in the blanks before rating. 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
