Good posts never die, they just used to get lost in the data base. So now we can find them again, and begin to build upon them.

And now I get a chance to vote on it again. :moon: Paws up! :moon: Go to Comment
Helping the Grazuul Tribe
Plots  (Discovery)   (Single-Storyline)
MoonHunter's comment on 2004-03-01 05:39 AM
There is a nice plotline, but it really does not have a "dramatic ending". Here is one I thought of.

As the group travels, it will have its share of encounters...
Old men thinking they are being invaded, the 15 year old wannabee hero, wanting to slay them with his rusty old sword, local militia ready for attack, plus a few other strangers on the road. One thing that should occur is having ghostly or even undead humans attack the tribe. These ghosts/ undead died in the great orc wars centuries previously.

The undead occurances should happen with more and more frequency as the tribe moves on. One of the Tribal elders, who is advocating peaceful co-existance and wanting to move, is having awful dreams.

Towards the end of the Journey, the tribe reaches a wide open space. Centuries ago, there was a great battle there. As the Tribe approaches, the sky goes dark, the world gets evil, and the undead army rises. They attack as ghosts, spectres, and zombies. Eventually some undead/ ghostly orcs will come back. A great war will occur, with you and your poor tribe in the middle.

Oh, the peaceful Orc Elder is specifically being targetted by his ancestor, the blood encrusted Orc Warlord who invaded this land with his horde.

How to resolve this... it all depends on the Orc Elder really, how he responds to his ancestor and the army against them. If he opts for peace, eventually peace from the Orcs will come. If he talks to the undead humans, they might listen. If he says we must attack, then it will be a fight to the finish. Go to Comment

This post should be rated a bit higher than it was. It was the first "NPC of the "Extra Horde" variety on the Citadel. At the time there was no "category" for such things and it was competing against stellar single person posts. Nobody really knew what to make of it. So it has languished in the bowels of the database. Now in Strolen's V2.0 it has found a place and hopefully a better score. Go to Comment

I voted this one quite high when I voted on it oh so many years ago.

I had, to be honest, forgotten about it. Had I seen it come up on a random list, I would of HoHed it too. Go to Comment
The Deterrent
Plots  (Mystical)   (Multi-Storyline)
MoonHunter's comment on 2003-09-11 04:23 AM
I like this. It is really more of a campaign idea than a single scenario, since it requires a very specific game world to make it possible. The GM who runs this will need to create said world and have the players encounter both sides, so they can make this campaign altering decision.

It works well if the players are from another sphere, teleported/ travelling here for some reason. Go to Comment
Blades of Majesty
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Campaign Defining)
MoonHunter's comment on 2004-05-06 01:51 AM
An item of destiny. The sort of thing that is incorporated into a fantasy book, rather than a game. It would take a great deal of GM finagling to make this item work in game.

This item is not cursed. It does what it does, propells you to power. So there is war and bloodshed along the way. How you handle that war/ bloodshed/ innocents in the way, would determine how long you are in power.

Then again... if you take a page from Hamlet, this item is cursed. It gets you there. There is nothing in the write up that says, you stay in power for any length of time. So soon after you "win", depending on how you go to power, you will soon find yourself deposed (by assasination, by revolt, etc). Go to Comment

I think I voted for this a long time ago. But it allows me to do it again, so I am :P

Setting or Campaign items: Yes, they are not things you can just drop into a campaign. The world has to be build around their existance. People with uber-enhanced skills (and drives and egos to match) will push the course of history. So history must be set up. Go to Comment

It is a very nice character. The cliche of noble girl giving it all up to become a theif/ bard/ wizard has gotten old for me. Still, for what it is, it is nicely executed. It has some good color elements. I like it, generally speaking. I do have some questions. ...

Okay.

I don't remember this one, so I am commenting this on anew.

Nicely balanced, a minor power with some minor complications. Actually the disadvantages can be converted to advantages in certain situations.

In many ways, this reminds me of the Magic the Gathering Cards or Vs cards that add certain Type Line keywords (make all your humans count as animals, thus subject to animal magic). That kind of "change" makes certain abilities easier. Go to Comment

A powerful magic item (and that is coming from me... maker of Orbs). Still the item has history, texture, and a good campaign purpose. And it has limits. Two thumbs up. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2004-03-19 02:40 AM
Worldwalker, the mage could easily defend themselves by use of indirect magic effects. While the attack spell will not effect the owner of the sword, they will quite nicely effect the wall/ floor/ ceiling. The sword does not protect from falling debre, telekinetically thrown (rather than controlled and used to hit), or dropping a story or two to a lower level. While the earthquake spell would be pretty desperate, the ground shaking would effect them. So it is not the end all, if the spell caster if intelligent enough.

Also an owner of this weapon would learn to fight smart as well. By applying tactics and some thoughts to the time and place of the attack, they would not need healing magics.

Magic should not be a crutch, it should be an edge. The sooner a player embraces that philosophy, the sooner they will achieve greater effectiveness for their characters. Go to Comment
