That's a good idea. I think my next NPC will be an Acquan Kraken that has developed a taste for Jurokang flesh. Go to Comment

Maggot's comment on 2008-10-07 08:52 PM
It's funny that sverigesson mentioned Rincewind, because that was exactly the famous fantasy wizard that came to my mind when I started reading this sub. As the others have said, this a great comic NPC. I bet though that in a fight where nothing but the strength of your pure magical ability mattered, Daymen would easily be able to overpower and vanquish most highly skilled mages.

P.S:Is Daymen a master of controlling organic elements? Many of his abilities seem to involve summoning various body fluids or different types of food. Go to Comment

Maggot's comment on 2008-10-07 09:24 PM
It's certainly well-written and very useful indeed. I would certainly be thrilled to lead a party of adventurers in storming this lab.The rewards in term of obtaining texts of great intellectual value would be incentive enough. And as for facing a vast, re-animated dragon within the narrow confines of a moving arena, that would be a challenge that I'd love to see PC's new to the adventuring bussiness face up to. Well done!

P.S:Is there any way that the lab could sense the presence of oncoming adventurers and then react by fleeing? And will it obey anyone other than its creator? Go to Comment

Like all your Thirties, this is entertaining and detailed. There are a few errors though, in terms of sentance construction. These somewhat muddy the meaning of a few of your sentences. Moroever, I feel that the Riddler could have done with a little more detail. Apart from that however, these are all believable and useful minor NPCs. Go to Comment

Do they really look the way that the comic depicts them? In your imagination, that is. All in all, nice work. Why exactly do they miners though? Is there a concrete reason for this? Go to Comment

A skillfully crafted item which can feature prominently in a variety of plot-hooks. The addition of defective and potentially dangerous tablets is a lovely touch. Go to Comment

I have to agree with Cheka. This is a quirky little item that might have some very unexpected but potentially comic results, should it ever fall into the hands of some naive hero or king who's under th delusion that this is a fearsome uber weapon that will allow him to single-handedly destroy a foe. Also, this is probably the only sub here that has ever depicted goblins in a noble and heroic light, which is something I like. Nicely done. Go to Comment
Suicide flies
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Plains)
Maggot's comment on 2008-09-24 08:43 PM
Interesting little creatures. Their biology while unusual, is certainly plausible. Do small predators of the nature that you described, avoid eating bonded suicide flies due to the lethal consequences that might follow? Go to Comment

Maggot's comment on 2008-09-24 10:50 AM
I like it. As Cheka said, it has a suitably mythic origin. And as much as a curse as blessing since it cannot be removed, by either physical or magical means, making it an item that I would not want to be saddled with. It is however, an excellent way of allowing a mere mortal to challenge a powerful mage to a duel and to live to tell his tale. Certainly a must have for any warrior that specalises in ridding his masters of dangerours magic users. All in all, excellent work! Go to Comment

A simple, morally devoid and saddistic thug who would nevertheless make a formidable enemy for any fledgling hero taking up the sword against evil for the very first time. As bad-ass as they get. Go to Comment

But didn't the Vikings excel in carrying out raids against defenceless settlements rather than standing up to actual armies? This is a nicely detailed submission, but I share Moon's misgivings as to how a population of peaceable farmers can stand up to legions of hardened orc warriors to whom battle is a way of life.

What MJS said. A pawn of a diabolcial deity that can be used to stir up great chaos and terror. Can be used in non-Acquan settings as well with a little modification. Go to Comment

This is an excellently written sub. Kudos for unelashing the self-loathing pentinential necromaner that seeks to eradicate sin and with it, the whole of humanity! That said, I'm afraid the backstory dosen't really explain exactly how Ambrosia became a necromancer. To be hoenst, in compaririosn with the rest of the sub, it was a bit of a let down. Go to Comment

A small, primitive village has yet to discover fire, which is a good thing because there are highly flammable (but not otherwise dangerous) gasses in the air. The heroes, blissful in their ignorance, don't know that and think it a wonderful idea to show the locals open flame.
