Can't say I like it. The writing needs improvement, much so - remove word repetitions, correct grammar, punctuation and spelling. Also, several of the vamps could use a total overhaul.

This gives a whole new meaning to "giving somebody the finger."

I am absolutely uncertain what to think of this :D

Must ponder.

Actually, this would find its way into the courtroom after the first incident, if it survived.

30 Starship Air & Maintenance Duct Problems

EchoMirage's comment on 2011-01-16 04:31 AM

Actually, we had a 30 with this theme....

Only, it got to 101.

What about simply adding these to that list? (Also, some of these are duplicate of problems on Scras' list).

Minor issue: legionnaire's disease is caused by a bacterium, not fungus.

They're well written, and some quite inventive.

I can't help myself, but I'd have welcome a more extensive sub, with more misconceptions aliens could have about us. Luckily, it is a scroll.

Not necessarily the "girl-eating-girl" theme, but generally ways human behaviour could be misunderstood by various alien species. Go to Comment
30 Bardic Tales

This is pretty good!

There are some issues with punctuation, and especially with meter in the poetry passages, but it's a worthy addition.

Ok, now I'm curious - have you actually made musical versions as well, or did you just think "there might be a melody that could be good with this" ? Praytell :) Go to Comment
The Sanguine Mist

EchoMirage's comment on 2011-01-10 03:01 PM

With the right kind of players, this can be an interesting plot hook.

Though, the mechanism of wish-granting could be subtler in some instances - at time it reads like a marketplace ("What does a leg get me?"); also, I can envision it sticking longer to one wishing person who has a great dream, helping him but consuming him in the end.

Plot hooks are good.

All in all, a good sub.

Hm, intended this for the last quest, but did not post it in time.

EchoMirage's comment on 2010-12-22 05:43 AM

Rather than painting a picture, it throws up questions.

As for their dimensions, they'd have to be disproportionately thicker than a simply enlarged human, as strength of bone increases with its cross-sectional area, but the burden placed upon it with the volume of flesh. Hence, why elephants are so stocky.

NPCs  (Scenario Based)   (Combative)
EchoMirage's comment on 2010-11-28 04:54 AM

While quite single-minded, with a sole purpose, sole course and thus sole dimension, this is a very tragic character - and may even be suitable as a protagonist if one adds a desire to combat the madness and goals beside killing.

What you might add are details of his schemes, how he goes about his quest for vengeance, for personally hunting a cult spread amongst the stars is stylish, but ineffective.

Sentinent Trickster Bush
Lifeforms  (Unique)   (Swamp)
EchoMirage's comment on 2010-11-28 04:23 AM

Well, DnD is full of trap-creatures like mimics, man-eating walls and floors and pants that are basically defeated by one roll to "sense whether there is something amiss" - if you don't you're screwed, if you do, the trap-creature is a sitting duck.

Thus, I suggest re-making the bush into something more original. Keep the name, but perchance... what about a sentient labyrinth of shrubberies, for example?

So far, a 2/5.

Horng Poh-Buh, The Bloodiest Cloth

EchoMirage's comment on 2010-11-25 02:50 AM

While it's nicely written, I think of it more as a piece of background color, an one-time purely descriptive encounter, not something one would build an adventure around.

EchoMirage's comment on 2010-11-22 04:08 AM

The monster is interesting, the introduction quite difficult to read, though - and most of it does not pertain to the topic.

I echo Black Jack: a group of possible explanations is better than just one answer.

You Can't Go Home Again -- Thomas Hardy

       By: rickster

An adventuress, Semma, has returned to her home village, but something has gone badly wrong: it's the furtive glances, the conversations that stop when she approaches, the childhood friends who now have no time for her. She returns to the town or city and enlists your party to help her find out what's going on.

The party must find out what is wrong: something (perhaps a Cthulhoid monster, perhaps a gang of vampires, perhaps just a bunch of bandits) is extorting obedience from the villagers by threatening their loved ones with at least death. Once the source is discovered, Semma and the party and a few brave yeomen (and women) must deal with the threat by finding its base and defeating it, and then deal with the remnant corrupted villagers who willingly served the Evil Force. These may prove to be the most difficult foe...
