Not to mention the fact that you can put it in your mouth as a deterrant against being poisoned when you suck venom from a wound.

I certainly did not learn that from Snakes on a Plane.

Other than a few minor grammatical errors (I don't know what a 'li' is, and the spelling of nearly), this work is executed with a definitive flair of the imagination.

It's also written damned well. Kudos. Go to Comment

Geez Cap, too high a praise. The only edge that I have is the thesaurus open in my lap at the time of the writing. You have the advantage with, say, everything else. Go to Comment

I have no idea how to respond to this torrent, other than saying-

Thank you, everybody. This started with a cool title, and has evolved into something that has transcended my wildest hopes of success.

That being said, it's still a work in progress- if you have any suggestions at all, please leave them. After all, it's not like I'm at a shortage for words or anything.

PS- Anybody who read it the whole way through without stopping has far too much mental fortitude. Go to Comment

Aah. I love the idea of a squid in space! Social, thus intelligent. They can communicate, are naturally adapted to freefall, and are smart enough to be able to control 8 different sets of controls at once.

Now that is a good idea. Go to Comment
Dragon Crossbow
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Combat)
Incarnadine's comment on 2006-06-28 02:28 PM
Well, I'm not much of an expert on crossbows, but here's my take.

A longbow can be between 60 and 160 pounds worth of draw- so you may want to change the stats of the draw, as each string could feasibly (if horrendously difficultly) be cocked manually. This would undoubtedy take a while, and be so cumbersome that dryfiring would be all but certain, but it probably would take less than 5 minutes. Go to Comment

A solid take on an old idea. While nothing is particularily unique, it is well fleshed out and, perhaps more importantly, very versitile. Go to Comment
Malicious Archeology
Dungeons  (Underground)   (Rooms/ Halls)
Incarnadine's comment on 2006-06-26 07:10 PM
Well, yes and no Iain. Given that the size of the room is never given, it is entirely possibly that arcing a ballistic shot from a bow would actually do some damage.

However, at the size that I was imagining (the passage is, say, thirty feet long) any attempted arc shots would either hit the wall above the wolves, or have to be drawn so weakly it'd do no damage.

Regardless, this is definitely up to the GM. Go to Comment

Well written, detailed, and a veritable wealth of quests- if not original, than simply mind-boggling with potential. I agree with Cheka wholehartedly. Go to Comment

I agree with Moon. Compared to the Minotauri, this post just sort of lacks the level of flair I normally associate with your stuff. Go to Comment

Whoa, suddenly an explosion of commentary. Thank you for the suggestions- as always, being your own critic never turns out right. Alas, I was afraid of the cliche storyline, but I couldn't think of anything better- any thoughts on how to improve that in particular?

Thanks again. Go to Comment

I'm not sure if this is intentional or not, but the name pronounced purely without silent letters and whatnot sounds a lot like 'canyon'. Minus the n.

I thought that was a nice touch for an animal that can quickly open up a huge avenue of oppurtunities for players. Go to Comment

My only comment is pure oak bows are really, really, really hard to use. So unless there's some symbolism in that that I'm not getting, I'd change that to yew. Go to Comment

Non-intelligent, photosynthesizing plant.

Remarkably unremarkable, Sawkins are dangerous plants that can easily kill any unwanted pests. Small, leathery red berries are located near the stem of the plant, and are surrounded by a thick tangle of serrated leaves. The branches of the plant are remarkably supple and strong, and are difficult to bend or break.

When a Sawkin is disturbed, it lashes out with several of its tough, saw-like leaves. These can cause great gashes and rends in the skin by repetitively rending flesh. It is not uncommon for victims to die later of blood loss or infection. Go to Comment

Mist Flower:
Intelligent, carnivorous plant.

Thankfully rare, a Mist Flower is a large, rose-like plant a meter in diameter. It is perpetually surrounded in a cloud of mist. The mist is actually millions of tiny, hair like vines that extend directly out of the central flower. When a person walks into the mist, he or she is engulfed in a web of tiny tendrils that slowly and inexorably deliver a potent nuero-toxin directly into the victim's system. The victim only becomes aware of his/her predicament when they try to leave the mist- the millions of tendrils hold them fast, paralyzing him/her with brutal efficiency. Within a few minutes, the person dies of asphyxiation and is delivered promptly to the base of the flower as fertilizer. Go to Comment

War of the Roses as a campaign plot. Two noble lines converge somehow, each line thinks it has the rightful claim to the throne. Deciding this long ago was handled by some divine intervention, requiring both houses to come together at some point. They aren't so willing to get together this time. Civil war, or a new king?
