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

The story, if indeed it is one, is difficult to follow, and lacks a true climax. The characters should be explained better... there are great holes in their description.

'Tis a post I cannot take liking to.

I wonder - is it usual for one child in a family to have a Japanese name and one an European one (Danielle/Sasuke)?

The idea itself is not bad, though it lacks formand a spelling checker would do it some good.

The 'revenge for dead family' thing is a bit old, though. Go to Comment

Most interesting, with nice story actually play the adventuring party, with Thera a still corporeal mage... :D Go to Comment

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
Lexicon Mortis
Items  (Books and Scrolls)   (Magical)
EchoMirage's comment on 2018-05-14 08:02 AM
A) Limitations? Can a possessed human still use it, or can only those with free will cast the spells? Any limits to spells cast per day?
B) Direct mind control is somewhat heavy-handed, but understandable due to the overly powerful nature of the item. Perhaps more interesting would be a book with tons of occult lore, but sapient, and subtly manipulating the players into acting according to its agenda. Go to Comment

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

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

You noticed that it will not tear through a wooden shield?

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

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

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...

A world where, instead of aging in years, the people age in knowledge. So, instead of dying once a general age was reached, they die once they achieve a certain amount of knowledge. A man could live forever if he never learned anything, or could die after reading a few choice books. Of course, the knowledge of the land would be regulated, like medical drugs.
