Wonderful ... I've always wanted to play God :D not as a PC, you know but, ... you get the idea ;)
I certainly grant 5/5, two thumbs up, and will write a starseed-themed poem if Kassil wishes so (just mail me :)
My current campaign is taking place in an old world on the brink of an apocalypse, and I first wanted the solution to be an escape like Raymond E. Feist's 'golden bridge', but this sure can be an alternative... Go to Comment
The last plot is a work of genius... "To save my people I will kill them..." -the drama! For each invade r who falls to the helmet's malice, the life of one citizen is sealed. *shudders*
Now imagine that in his fury, the king killsall of the enemies with the magic, but... the invaders outnumbered the citizens considerably - and as the defenders of the last castle die, the dark power makes them rise and sally forth to claim lives from what is now known as the Blighted Land...

When I read posts such as this, I rejoice. But: when i think of series like... Charmed, for example, it makes me wonder. For those writing the script, it would be far easier to browse an RPG forum and gather ideas, that to put their unelaborated creations into the series. Go to Comment
Liked that series too...
The character is good - believable, and useable as an NPC - no super-villain, but dangerous enough, and I can imagine him right out without having to try much.
And yes, the players hate nothing more than an opponent who FORCES fear upon them... Go to Comment
Wonderful. The university of Vienna could have become something like this if the Habsburg Reich had lasted longer! I happen to be studying there, and truly, many strange figures creep along the corridors, and who knows what happens in the forgotten cellars and laboratories... 5/5 Go to Comment
Sweet, the classical "at what cost power?" item, letting the wÃzard ascend to a great height before being toppled from it into the deepest abyss of oblivion...some players might not even object, seeing how powerful their 'mere 3rd level whizzard' has become in the end :D
I wonder - if the wrait's host body is killed, will he return into the ring? Or once having possessed the victim, is he free again?
Could the ring be taken of and re-set to the original 'intant' effect after a period of waiting, thus letting it gain power, reset, put on again? Go to Comment
This is actually much in tune with the Staff of Mozrak Maggot posted today...
Be what you hate, experience what you deny...
How nice would it be if those white supremacists had to be black for a few months, warmongers forced to live the life of a peasant in a war-torn country, misogynists had to give birth an the like. Go to Comment
Now this post is more interesting for its social effects than the consequences for combat...
A detective plot could be about someone finding an alternative entrance and stealing food, while a troll lumbering into the cave and threatening the supplies could be a challenging encounter, especially if you have to watch out where exactly you throw that fireball.
The tribe politics about the Cave of Eternal Food could be quite enjoyable as well. Go to Comment
At least for once, the one who must prove themselves is not an NPC so that it is considered to be worthy of the adventurer, but the heroes will eagerly try to show their best side, building up a reputation, risking their life, even being well-behaved and all that for the possibility of fighting the princess for the right to court her ... nice. 4/5 Go to Comment
