Echo approves. Elves. On the moon. Floating on a carnivorous lotus. Hell yeah.

I find the idea of a wizard getaway where they can't be disturbed quite nice. Alas, I wonder how order is kept? Is it an invitation-only secret society?

This is actually pretty good :) I can imagine using it.



What I would improve is to replace the events when nothing happens. We want stuff to be interesting, to have stuff happen.

Ah, I get it, it could be interpreted as: "Duke Calmarden used the weakening of the Tanelon dynasty during the Thirty Years war to become independent, and keep his duchy out of conflict, to emerge vital where lands around were laid to ruin."

Also the random times between events sound good. Here, have an exp :) Go to Comment

Also, PCs being usually dynamic, having a safe haven is not broken in itself. "I never leave my castle!" "OK, nothing happens."

Echo likes, Echo approves. The Scrasamax has been deployed, and exceeded expectations! Nay-sayer forces have been eliminated, the EchoMirage only took a minor hit in pride and saw a great increase in motivation.



All in all a 5 :)



Sole objection: why do you US guys have to place the bad guys in Russia these days? It's kind of lame.

My sole objection was swept away by a second barrage of well-worded explanations by Scrasamax, then :) Migou infestation of Mother Russia is well justified in this context (though I think it would be awesome if you still had normal Russians resisting the Migou).

As with Wrathbringer, I somewhat resent the mind control aspect. Corruption is so much sweeter if the mortal got to make all the wrong choices himself.



Usually, it will be sufficient to give a mortal that political acumen, let him know of the plans of the enemies, perhaps serve as a non-sentient depository of knowledge - that coupled with added charisma is usually enough to fuel pride. Once he has a few enemies, the paranoia also comes on its own.

It's funny in an "I can imagine one of my players coming up with this" way. Quirky and original, too. Not entirely practical, but for a lighthearted campaign quite useful. Have a 4/5



On a side note, imagine super magical birds being the supreme rulers, and their envoys carrying their bird houses hence and forth. Perhaps the UberBird has its BirdPalace linked to a hundred portable StaffBirdHouses!

EchoMirage's comment on 2011-12-10 02:10 AM


I'd like to know two things:



a) as Anaszt's descent into vampirism would make a fascinating tale for heroes to discover, how exactly did the switch from peacemaker to bloodsucker come about? (We all know how a poor description of a hero's fall can ruin the whole experience, see Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith)



b) what sets the Anaszti apart from normal vampires, beside the pyramid scheme of blood?

Not too original then, no?
(Also, you managed to strip them of all their vulnerabilities in the process - no mystical vulnerability, no folk remedy, and no death from the sun... I can imagine munchkins everywhere creaming their pants).

I don't mean to sound hostile, but this needs work. Go to Comment

I gave it some more thought.

You know, the concept of the vampire was very different across cultures, times and legends. Why, I read about a kind of vampire that comes into being when a woman's head detaches and floats around with the organs and spine dangling behind, sucking blood of course. People put thorny branches into the windows so that vampires would get caught by their guts in them, and not be able to enter.
That's an actual legend, from planet Earth.

You have vampires that are little more than corpses, driven by eternal hunger. You have baroque socialites and weeping emo metrosexuals.

The sole common theme is blood. So. We Strolenites pride ourselves on being original. Proceed accordingly. Go to Comment

Infiltraitor - what a combination of infiltrator and traitor :)



Am I not funny?



Anyways, I'd like more fluff here, even in Warhamster you get more fluff for units! Cpt. Penguin would have them be the vengeful spawn of the Murdered Child, who lies shackled and undead in the rotting carcass of its god-mother, sending out these abominations born of its flesh to hunt the rapist of its parent! Rrrrraaaaagh!



It needs more Rrraaaagh! I'll hold my vote until then.
