Naylor's Ring of Silence
Items  (Jewelry)   (Magical)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-07 09:11 AM
Not a bad item. It would certainly make for a lot of amusing scenarios, I imagine. Go to Comment
Thomas Thorne, the Unfortunate Mage
NPCs  (Major)   (Travelers)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-08 10:35 AM
This is quite succintly written and I like the sardonic, wry sense of humour that pervades the story. But is there some hidden reason as to why Thorne's spells keep causing damage that he has no intention of inflicting? Surely a competant mage like him would able to prevent such disasters.

The Temples of Stoneholt
Locations  (Area)   (Underground)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-11 08:06 AM
I must agree with Muro. The idea of a gigantic, sun-phobic humanoid race that practiced mysterious rituals and underwent bizzare phsyical transformations within the confines of cacoons, really adds to the overall atmopshere of the city of the brooding bizzare city of Stoneholt. As your narative seems to imply, do feral bands of Caretakers indeed guard these places against inturders? Go to Comment
30 Were-Creatures
Lifeforms  (Third Kingdom)   (Any)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-09 01:55 AM
Exceptionally well written, although as Val pointed out there are a couple of weaker entries among this particular collection of weres. Nevertheless, it is still overwhelmingly an amazing collection of critters and for this reason deserves a HOH. By far and large, I have to say that the Were-Scorpion and Were-Jackal are my favourites. Go to Comment
The Chair Of Life
Items  (Home/ Personal)   (Magical)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-07 06:31 AM
I don't have much to add except to say that this is an aamzing sub. Well done! Go to Comment
Lancet Fluke Seal
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Water)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-03 04:43 AM
Intriguing. Is there any explanation as to why this seal is so radically different from others? It's a mutation or abomination, perhaps? Go to Comment
The Fringe Lands
Locations  (World)   (Any)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-31 02:58 AM
Not bad. Will you be expanding on this setting a little more? Go to Comment
Dolmens Of Swaiar
Locations  (Ruins)   (Any)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-30 07:05 AM
Creepy and sinister. But visiting the dolmens is a good way for those weary of life to kill themselves, I guess. Do ordinary folk, those not suffering from mental illness, regard these dolmens as a place of evil? Go to Comment
The Hand of Ma-O
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Combat)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-30 06:55 AM
If its powered by a battery, how long can it operate before it needs to be recharged?

Apart from that question, this seems to be a neat enough sub. Its logical and useful, ready to be used by anyone planning to abduct someone. Would the cult sell one of these devices to criminal elements? Go to Comment
Spennymore's Skating Boots
Items  (Clothes)   (Magical)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-29 02:59 AM
This is actually quite a potent but deadly item. The fact that if your fear stops, you might very well end up dying at the hands of your enemies, makes it a rather sinister item. Was the slippery effect over a wider radius than normal when the wearer is afraid, an intentional or accidental effect? Go to Comment
Yogran
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Water)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-26 10:41 PM
They would remind one strongly of old, rotting cheese in terms of flavour. The flesh is both vile tasting and extremely tough, making it a less than suitable culinary ingredient. Go to Comment
Yogran
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Water)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-03 04:41 AM
You're essentially right in saying that they're just a variant on pirahnas, but I thought I'd just create a fish that is both highly prized as a pet as well as being totally dangerous to humans. Ya know, just to create some excitment for NPCs or PCs looking for fairly popular but challenging pets. Go to Comment
Blackice Pick
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Villanous)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-26 02:01 AM
This item is actually pretty cool and not just in the literal sense. Instead of wielding this weapon and thus becoming uber-powered munchkins in the process, the PCs would have to destroy it or otherwise prevent an ambitious forst giant from getting his hands on it. That should make for a lot of cool plot twists. Go to Comment
Sproggans
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Swamp)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-27 10:20 PM
It is rather silly as befits most goblin subs. Whimsical and amusing, the Sproggan would certainly be a nice suprprise to spring on any thuggish NPC who thinks that he can get away with bullying a helpless little goblin. Go to Comment
The Waresian Armoire
Items  (Other)   (Cursed)
Maggot's comment on 2009-01-02 03:11 AM
Nicely done indeed. I'm guessing that first image carved into the back is that of the little child who was the first to die within the wardrobe? Go to Comment
Rot Beetle
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-27 02:32 AM
Updated:
This is the updated bug, with some modifications and additions made. I've incorporated the many useful suggestions that both Scras and Silveressa made. Go to Comment
Rot Beetle
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-27 10:25 PM
Well, just to clear two things, by the time the beetle exits its host, it's the size of a small mouse as is stated in the sub. Anything that size which crawls out someone's bum is gdefinitely oing to leave some damage in its wake. Plus, at this point, the beetle is nearing the end of its life-span and so dosen't really care if it ends up killing its host as it makes its way out.

With that that said, thanks for telling me about parasites latching onto the intestinal rather than the stomach walls. And I guess the secretion wasn't probably that neccessary. I might make a couple more modifications. Go to Comment
30 Beers
Articles  (Campaign)   (Gaming - In General)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-15 01:31 AM
It certainly adds some flavour where tavern crawling is concerned. These fantasy brews out to make stopovers in pubs a more interesting experience for PCs. Well done. Go to Comment
30 Divine Concepts
Systems  (Societal/ Cultural)   (Defining)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-17 09:35 AM
This a true gem. When it comes to devising a system of belief for any world or country, your sub offers a myraid range of options that could make for an interesting environment to RP in. I especially like the ''Secret Names'' idea. Superbly done indeed! Go to Comment
Sunflower
Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Any)
Maggot's comment on 2008-12-13 09:42 PM
I'm just wondering if drinking the brew distilled from its petals is dangerous in the long run? Since sun light contains harmful UV radiation, wouldn't drinking the sunlight stored in the plant's petals have adverse effects on one's health evantually? Go to Comment
