Heh, much unlike a guy I played with once... He put down some adversary, and I explained: "All that is left of him is but a hollow scream..." and he answered: "Great! I pick up the scream. Now I got my own scream!" Go to Comment

Well, and? What happened to the novels? Were they published, stayed unfinished, or are lying in a dusty drawer somewhere? Go to Comment

Well she IS a Yuna ripoff... someone wanted a cute goody-good character, he (she) made it. An avatar of an idealized self. Go to Comment

EchoMirage's comment on 2004-06-19 08:19 AM
This is one cool item, better than all the "Swords of the Infallible Gods" and "Legendary Kick-Ass Wrist Blades of Nobody-Can-Use-Us-Except-True-Masters"

Believable and amusing, witrh campaign potential. 5/5 Go to Comment

EchoMirage's comment on 2004-06-19 08:21 AM
There could be others, like Bilukka, a tasty spicy sauce that enhances fertility, or that really exquisite ChocBanaKiwiMint fruit that you can't get enough of, but that gives you a 5% chance of fumbling up any spell. Go to Comment
Egg Cup of Summoning

EchoMirage's comment on 2004-05-25 03:54 PM
Most delightful! That is how magic is to be done - not with the wink of a hand, familar, come to me, be my slave, but with tradition, ritual, song and incantation!

Makes the familiar feel special, too... Go to Comment

Also, a nice way for amazons not to have to cut off a breast...
Just keep them out of the way until action is over... Go to Comment

Well, as for the character, she needs some serious re-working to be consideredat least marginally interesting. Go to Comment

Four Arms
NPCs  (Mythic/ Historical)   (Mystical)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-05-27 07:16 AM
This is actually nice, most nice.
And as for your worries - it will never get weird enough! Just keep getting weirder! The players will love unique opponents.

I agree with the suggestion that, while he is a positive character, Four-Arms should be an antagonist for the weak men hiding behind the false shelter of civilization, forfeiting individual power for the might of the masses...

Cauldron of Hatred
Items  (Home/ Personal)   (Magical)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-05-28 04:10 AM
Don't be dismayed Captain, you have posted much better items, you will again.
About the item:
It is just like with nuclear weapons - if it is there, some fool might just use it, and if its ONLY danger is that it might kill the user inside an inferno it released, taking the whole surroundings with him, and it has no limits on activation (one does not need that much to set off a working nuclear warhead) it WILL be used too often - I suppose the cauldron is not consumed by its own rage, right? A reusable nuclear weapon? Imagine what certain folks, say, in Palestina, Iraq, Ireland or Basque would give for this...their very souls, and their grandma as a bonus.

Duh, I don't like nukes that much, except when dropping them at the Zerg... 3/5 Go to Comment

Actually interesting, if a little short. I'm surprised that the Capt'n would ever use such a term as 'neutral good' ;) Perhaps you could edit him a bit and flesh him out? Still, I like it. Go to Comment

Besides a few spelling errors, there's nothing I'd change. A cool twisted plot (how come I never voted on it?)

Sword of Unattainable Glory
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Combat)
EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-21 05:00 PM
Well Capt'n, the problem with this is the same we have with nuclear weapons - some idiot might use them without considering the consequences. Like if you gave a nuke to some fanatic - he hight set it off in the centre of Tokyo or London or Washington, or the little capitol of the little country I live in, just to show 'them', whoever they may be.

Without fixing it, it should be reduced to a legend: "And once, upon a time, Sendar the Vaillant drew the SoUG and the hordes of the demons as well as the army that lured them to the Tomb of Gods was consumed in a blinding flash. It was where the Circle Sea is today..."

It needs a little tweaking, and, to be honest, I like my fantasy without nukes.
And yes, "lhb/hlllllllllllllllll" sure is great. Some live their lives without ever hearing such a wise saying ;) Go to Comment

Look, if we try long enough, we will find that many a word means something vulgar in some other language, present or past.

For example, in Polish, 'sukat' means 'to search', if I am correct. But the very same word means 'to f**k' in Czech or Slovak. So, iamgine a few Czech tourists entering a polish church during the mass and hear the phrase "We search for you, mother of the Lord". I guess they could not help it and HAD to burst out laughing.

Another example: The turkis word for 'Rose' means 'Whore' in German. Poor girls named Rose I guess.

So I gues, if I name a character Ponglitlaxi, some Aztec will mail me informing me that it means 'Spoogy Jaguar' or 'Hand-cuffed Senate Member with a Condom on his Head"
So it is pointless to point out such bu!!$h!+ Go to Comment

Under the sewers of a large town ancient burial chambers are discovered. If the PCs investigate they fill find that a pale white flowers grows amongst the graves, in the dark.
How do they survive without light? What is their origin? Why in a burial chamber and not just in any old cave?
Can they be sold or do they have any special quality at all? It is up to the PCs to discover.
