Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)
Maggot's comment on 2011-08-05 08:23 AM
I'd like to think that the Lurdi, like most scavengers that feed on carrion, have developed immunities against the pathogens that reside in the bodies of the creatures they eat. Glad you liked it. Their behaviour was actually modelled after that of actual pirahnas,. Go to Comment
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)
Maggot's comment on 2010-07-13 12:37 AM
Interesting take on dark unicorns. I have to echo Echomirage(forgive the unintentional pun) and say that the part about the Mordanfey's abilities being limited by human observation is an excellent touch. Go to Comment
The Usholal
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)
Maggot's comment on 2010-07-11 04:03 AM
forganthus, you raise some excellent questions. I'll update my sub to reflect the answers to them. As for my Tarrod sub, I promise you the Lurrdi.I think you'll find those Piranhna-men to be as interesting as the Usholal. Go to Comment

Update: Sub has been edited to reflect the excellent questions and suggestion of forganthus.My thanks to him for helping to make this a better submission. Go to Comment
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Underground)
Maggot's comment on 2010-05-19 08:04 AM
An interesting take on goblins. Even without the addition of Vega, they would still be a fascinating race in their own right. How are they seen by large races among the goblin species like orcs or hob-goblins? I'd imagine that these would be harder to supplant than goblins. Go to Comment
30 Army Officers
NPCs  (Extras)   (Combative)
Maggot's comment on 2010-05-13 08:24 PM
As usual, you've created another set of believable and distinctive 30s. Many of them would be very useful in games that involve large military campaigns and some I can personally relate to. Lazy actually reminds me of some of the officers that I served under. Go to Comment
The Uuluun
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)
Maggot's comment on 2010-05-13 10:59 AM
Credit for this sub actually belongs solely to Captain Penguin. Way back in 2004 when Tarrod was still in its infancy, he generously created this race for the aquatic world that I was working on. Since they are such an important part of Tarrod as well as worthy creations in their own right, I thought they deserved to have their own sub to themselves on the main site. Go to Comment
The Uuluun
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)
Maggot's comment on 2010-05-19 07:49 AM
I imagine the Uuluun could be cast as heroic figures who attempt to mantain an equitable balance where use of the sea's resources is concerned. They could also be cast as protectors of some primitive coastal tribe. Slave raids on such islanders by pirates or other nasties might provoke violent conflict. Go to Comment
Jirix, City of Ice
Locations  (City)   (Tundra/ Arctic)
Maggot's comment on 2010-05-13 08:36 PM
Would possession of this city be very lucrative? Given the highly valuable nature of the ice as an export commodity, I'm surprised that no local ruler or warlord has tried to bring the city under his sway. Also, would it be correct to assume that only the gnomes are citizens with humans and others being merely resident aliens? Go to Comment
Emperor Whale
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Water)
Maggot's comment on 2010-05-13 10:41 AM
A beautiful oceanic sub. These guys are the fantasy version of Godzilla. I'm definitely going to find some way of using them. By the way, are there any marine cultures that worship these behmoths of the deep? Go to Comment
The City of Teleleli
Locations  (City)   (Any)
Maggot's comment on 2010-05-07 09:57 PM
I have to agree with RGTryanor. This is a ricly detailed sub and its constant references to ties with our world bring up my childhood memories of the Narnia series. If you wrote novels based on this setting, I would definitely read them. Go to Comment
Baron Trotha
NPCs  (Major)   (Criminal/Espionage)
Maggot's comment on 2010-03-25 08:34 PM
Nothing to add except to say that this is a perfect way of making would-be-heroic PCs end up looking like total villians when they slaughter the Baron. The story is also quite well-written and this is certainly an NPC who would make an interesting adversary. Nicely done indeed. Go to Comment
Grey Reaver
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (Any)
Maggot's comment on 2010-03-25 08:36 PM
What can I add, except to say that this is by far the most fearsome type of undead that I've seen lurking within the Citadel? Awesome job. Go to Comment
The Dumuzid
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (Underground)
Maggot's comment on 2010-03-08 06:34 AM
Nicely done. I really like the way you've added some Sumerian mythology to create a dramatic backdrop for this sub. I also enjoy the touch about the Dumazid infiltrating the dreams of a tomb robber. Out of curiosity, does it slay him in in his dreams? Go to Comment
Jade Alksnis
NPCs  (Scenario Based)   (Criminal/Espionage)
Maggot's comment on 2010-01-16 03:29 AM
This is quite a well-written sub. I especially like the way that Jade attained her ambition of becoming a ruler in her own right, albeit in a very sinister manner. Does she regret the destruction of her people's entire culture or did she always revile it as backward and sexist? Also, does she realize that she is just a puppet ruler who must answer to the male Captains of the Company? Go to Comment

That's a good idea for a plot hook as AG said. I've decided to add that as a potential side plot so as to make this setting more gaming friendly. Go to Comment

That's a great suggestion, Muro, but do you know how exactly I'm supposed to go about doing it? I apologise if I'm asking a rather silly question, but formatting has never been my strong suit. Thanks Go to Comment
Mirror Golem
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (Other)
Maggot's comment on 2009-12-04 03:00 AM
This is a pretty neat beastie. I would love to use a being like this, if only for visual impact alone. Would it be possible to reduce this glass golem to smithereens by hurling large boulders at it? If so,what happens to the spirit animating it? Go to Comment

The Omen Star: In the West, in what appears to be an eccentric orbit, appears the Omen Star. The appearance of the Omen Star in the first house of the sky bodes "great things" for good or ill are about to happen. It is the rest of the stars that determine if it is for good and ill. Thus people are always looking for things to happen during the time of the Omen Star.
