Most interesting, with nice story actually play the adventuring party, with Thera a still corporeal mage... :D Go to Comment
The Consort
Plots  (Duty)   (Side-Quest)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-06-08 02:40 PM
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
NPCs  (Minor)   (Travelers)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-06-15 05:04 PM
Perfect for a low-level party who lack the means to move continents and blast dragons from the sky ... or remove a divine curse.

It could actually be funny if the wizard succeeded in transforming the conniver into a fair human maiden *evil grin* Go to Comment

Very classic, very useful especially if you have vastly different charasters (also with vastly different bodies). Go to Comment
Guise of the Dead

Heh, in one of my campaigns, I came up with an amulet that did just the same thing - the effect is equivalent, but this is more gross. Sweet! Go to Comment
Blackwood Axe
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-06-29 02:20 PM
You noticed that it will not tear through a wooden shield?

Anyway, wonderful item, leading you finally to accomplish something... Go to Comment

See? THAT is a good item 'of berserking'. Go to Comment
Far Tragin
Locations  (Tundra/ Arctic)   (City)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-05-28 04:51 PM
The contrast is wonderful - warmth and safety within, yet marrow-freezing cold and unfathomable danger outside. Venture forth at your own peril, lad! (But I must! I have to find the Asperous Sceptre of Spectre Sparking! - Then do so, but we nay be fetching yer frozen butt outta the wastes, got it?)

This town is a perfect setting for a horror setting: the sea frozen, and blizzard cutting visibility to a mere five feet, the cold shattering stones, something has come over the ice, and it hungers... Go to Comment
The Land of the Living
Locations  (Country/ State)   (Forest/ Jungle)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-20 10:15 AM
Imagine the Land of the Living after a century or two of gathering experts, immigration permission being sort of a reward - the greatest storehouse of knowledge and Mecca of science.
It would be the greatest of privileges for a student to be able to study in the Grand University of the Khan, in a land that does not know sickness, hunger, accidents, and that no-one dares to attack anymore.

The elixer of Invisibility
Items  (Potion)   (Magical)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-05-25 03:28 PM
If you want to sum up the effects of this potion, just look up the "Arcane" Background trait in Mage: the Ascension - hard to remember, even harder to describe, when unconspicious disregarded as harmless/uninteresting.

This is but a repetition of the classic 'Another Person's Business' phenomenon, and would be more appropriate for a veil, a fan, a mask or clothing than a potion...

The City of Caulderon
Locations  (City)   (Other)
EchoMirage's comment on 2005-02-08 02:13 AM
Very interesting - I like it.
It would be amusing to playsay a Caulderonian who managed to get left behind when his air ship gathering supplies had to leave urgently, or fall of the city and saving himself with a parachute/getting caught by a griffin and carried off...

Of course, if the Caulderonians decided to be nasty, it could lead to scenes like in Independence Day, with a city floating above the royal palace, and dumping something unpleasant on it.

As for the name - what else could be a city of alchemy be named after but the cauldron :) Go to Comment
Last City of the Sun Worshippers

An ominous finger of warning for all empires to come.
A tomb of shattered pride.
A monument to man's foolishness. Go to Comment

Killing my sanity with the Droooow!

Torch Axe
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Combat)
EchoMirage's comment on 2005-01-27 04:47 PM
An interesting idea... perhaps those bladesw of lightning must be charged first as well, and Venom Blades re-filled, and Sunfire Swords left in the sun, preferably in the tropics :)

The Lonesome Village
Locations  (Forest/ Jungle)   (City)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-06-16 05:21 AM
In a fantasy world, there are so many things that can drive you mad ... you think napalm is bad? Have a dragon incinerate your village. You thing being violated in a back street is horrible? Have a demon do it. Family problems are already enough to unhinge a mind - now try and imagine knowing that one of the quarrelsome family members is possessed/a doppleganger, and find out which - they all behave irrationally already!


It does not take much to reduce one to a gibbering wreck!

Heh, the adventurers who wear it care! I(magine that adamantine was pink, mithral turqouise and meteoric iron orange! It would severely limit your choice of equipment, unless of course you INTENDED to look like a circus tent. Go to Comment
Bianca la Fiere
NPCs  (Minor)   (Combative)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-06-20 12:57 PM
A teacher. An avenger against a unsavoury party. A great story hook, or a way to show the mighty warrior that no-one is invincible.
Say, fifteen years later, a young lad/lass could appear at courst, desiring to be the duellist, much against the mother's wishes.
If Bianca found some latent magical abilites, she could fully compensate for her lack of sight - like a fortuneteller in a book of TerryPratchett, who trained her precognition to work on the present. Go to Comment

Tragic. Tortured. Tremendous potential.
