Deacon Rogue

Maggot's comment on 2009-02-04 05:52 AM
An interesting NPC whose rage against symbols of clerical power has a rational and feasible explanation. Could his loathing for rich nobles be explained by the fact that they have as much to do with the slave trade as powerful clerics? Go to Comment
Martin Kendall (30-The Hedge Wizard)
NPCs  (Character Sheet)   (Travelers)
Maggot's comment on 2009-02-01 03:31 AM
Why exactly does he insist on avoiding the royal court even though the man who ordered his execution, is long since dead? Does the order still stand? Or is he simply wary of being betrayed again by the royal court? Go to Comment
30 Rods and Staves
Items  (Wand/Staff/ Arcane)   (Magical)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-31 08:52 AM
Splendidly done! Almost all these various staff-like implements are excellent items can that make an exciting adventure for a PC who finds himself confronted with any one of them. From the slaver's goad that can inflict searing agony on adventurer attempting to cut down a slaver, to the Clovern-hoof staff that the Minotaurs will pay a handsome staff to retrieve, these are all objects that I would love to encounter in a game.

As a matter of fact, the Maoist Communist who terrorised large swathes of the world during the Cold War, were actually the inspiration for this NPC. I wanted to channel revolutionaries who weren't stereotypical ''good guys'', so to speak. Go to Comment

Would you like me to add those details? I could expand the Roleplaying notes section quite a bit if you think that doing that would result in a more well-rounded NPC. Go to Comment

Updated: I have taken what Scras said into consideration and have added additional details to give him more depth as a character. Go to Comment
Helk the Hatchet
NPCs  (Minor)   (Combative)

Not a bad NPC as far as psychopaths go, but how did he accquire his skill with hatchets? I'm just curious. Go to Comment
Princess Amelia, Princess of Lovebirds
NPCs  (Minor)   (Political)
Maggot's comment on 2009-02-01 04:35 AM
This is not a bad sub. However, perhaps due to the frivolous nature of the entry inspired that this NPC, I have to agree with Val that I can't exactly see her playing a dramatic role. As far as plot hooks go, I have a suggestion that you might find useful. Perhaps the princess's attempts to find true love for a royal sibling, results in a full-scale war as it derails a union meant to strengthen ties between two nations? Go to Comment
Edward Bailey
NPCs  (Minor)   (Criminal/Espionage)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-27 09:16 AM
An interesting NPC with details that make him stand out from the run-of-the-mill pirate. Nicely done. Does Edward Bailey ever find himself yearning for his original home on dry land? Go to Comment
The Dreamwalkers
Society/ Organizations  (Mystical)   (World Wide)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-23 06:54 AM
This is a pretty interesting sub, with lots of potential plot hooks. It is concisely written and is farily easy to understand. I also like the fact that the current order of Dreamwalkers were not the first to discover this ability. Is there any reason why the higher ranking members of the order refuse to divulge the existence of the previous Dreamwalkers to the current one? Go to Comment

I've fixed that part about the female shamans. Is there anything else that needs to be sorted out? Thanks. Go to Comment
Shababa the Orcish Dancing Girl
NPCs  (Minor)   (Artistic/Performance)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-23 01:36 AM
Quite an unfortunate individual. Her predicament is really quite dire. Among her own people, she was seen as an eccentric who had a bizzare obsession with dancing. And among humans, she's seen as a freak that's good for a laugh, but not much else. Stuck between two cultures, neither of which can appreciate her talent, she serves as a good reminer of what happens to those that dare to differ. Go to Comment

The Toads of Lichenbridge
Locations  (Area)   (Swamp)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-23 03:44 AM
As someone who finds amphibians, and espcially toads, to be foul and repulsive in the extreme, being trapped in a filthy inn infested with ravenous were-toads would be my personal idea of hell. I find it interesting that the Jesks possess a trap-door that takes them directly to the vast lake beneath Awangis. Is their condition linked in some way to the mysterious amphibians that dwell in the lake? Go to Comment
The Vénat
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (City/ Ruin)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-19 06:17 AM
Not a bad sub. I can see them inflicting a terrible punishment on any arrogant mercenary or adventurer who thinks he can amuse himself by trying to catch one. As for their penchant for eating human eyeballs, do they just attack anyone at random or do they only eat the eyeballs of those who try to kill or capture them? If they were to go around attacking just anyone for their eyeballs, I imagine that most humans would declare open war against them. Go to Comment
Baugl the Lost
NPCs  (Major)   (Criminal/Espionage)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-18 11:39 AM
A creepy and somewhat unsettling individual. This skulking marauder really reminds me of Gollum. Might he indeed have been the inspiration for Baugl? Go to Comment
The Knights Medicus
Society/ Organizations  (Combative)   (World Wide)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-14 03:33 AM
I like these guys! They would fit seamlessly into the most post-scop settings that have been overrun with the infectious undead. However, I do have a couple of questions. Firstly, how are fresh recruits obtained? You mentioned that the knights are trained from infancy onwards for the roles that they will evantually play. Can I take this to mean that the currently existing Knights are the descendents of the original group of survivors that made it to the Himalayas? Secondly, why is the Plague decimating their numbers? Is it due to the Knights becoming infected after coming into contact with the undead? Go to Comment
Talking Eyeballs of Petrification
Items  (Other)   (Sentient)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-12 11:21 AM
Both gruesome and comical. I guess that fact that Anima has to rely on them for his sole source of conversation, speaks volumes about his lack of a proper social life. I want to know why they have been enchanted to petrify the people they bump into. Are they intended as guardians who protect the mage's stuff from would-be thieves? Go to Comment
30 Slaves
NPCs  (Extras)   (Domestic/ Craft)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-12 01:52 AM
One of the better thirties. The entry about the unemployed slave is the most chilling, especially in light of the current economic down-turn. :) Why are the unemployed instantly enslaved though? Is this to prevent them from becoming a potentially subversive force? Go to Comment
