Nice and simple. What if the limited common potion was limited to potions they had actually consumed with that week period which then resets with the next week. Or the turning of the moon or whatever. So when it resets and they try to summon one, nothing happens as they have not yet partaken of the potion that week? Go to Comment
I like this, it is simple and to the point. The off chaff nature of it is more akin to a few DM's sitting around a table and telling stories of "How they do things." I like. Be nice to turn this into a proper 30. Go to Comment
I am only voting because I'm not sure why I wouldn't. And I somehow find that I like this. It has given me an idea for a short side plotline in my story. A visceral idea of an oracle or wayward traveler speaking to a party member on a darkened rainy road. Go to Comment
I really have little to add or say about this that either hasn't been voiced or said already. I am finding I am voting a little higher because this sent me to another sub which spawned a few ideas so for that I am grateful. Go to Comment
I was hoping for much much more when I read the title. As it is this is a solid and simple item. Not over over-done and not under developed and it can definitely be tweaked to any use as per needed. Go to Comment
While I wish this was more fleshed out I realize that it is a great fluff piece of added to a larger whole. I like it and brings images of dark sooty weapon masters being enslaved and forced to work this hell forge for some evil villain. Wonderful.
I had originally had a lower vote but it just sparked a few ideas in me so I voted higher for the inspiration it gave me. Go to Comment
I think this as a whole is fine. I echo Moonlake only in that it has been done, but the thing I found most enjoyable is the fact it is written as you would find it in a source book of information. It gives perfect detail on what the players would find or know about said item on how well they either researched it or however the system or game your playing determines information checks.
I like it. And the fact it is simply a trap used by villains is a point winner for me. Go to Comment
Until the end I had figured it to be simply just a tale. That all of the deeds were actually done by members of a rebellion and supposed "witnesses" claimed it to be the Legendary Leg... I would find it entertaining for the PC's to be placed under a mantle of doing deeds in the name of said Leg to fuel a rebellion further while trying to hide the fact that its just a bunch of non-sense.

I wasn't as thrilled with this one in the beginning as I am now. I honestly didn't think it would pan out as well as it did, similar to val. But I was surprised at the addition of the undead in the list. As I first read it and was disappointed I then realized that some necromancers turn to themselves as beings of Undead eventually. Not all stay living and that i s when I went and reread this and enjoyed it more. Good job Cheka... Go to Comment
I like this idea, and as previously been said, I think if it was worked on for a little bit more it could have been so much more. Commenting on Goss, nowhere in the sub does it state that they require sex of any kind so I don't see where and why its necessary to have organs of such. It is fantasy after all, hell even Sci-Fi could argue races with homogeneous origins are evident all the time in books and movies. I see little issue with it and it definitely doesn't detract from sub, I honestly didn't even think about it. Go to Comment
I echo Strolen in saying I like Haukagaron the most out of it and learn little to almost nothing about him, which is fine because it is about the castle not him. But the castle seems to bland. Nothing about it jumps out at me. Ok, so this noble becomes a lich, you've mentioned it now so tell me how? Sure the marble it is made from is cool, the elemental torches are really niffty (I wil luse that) but nothing screams at me that it is outrageous. Its like there are at least three to four subs linked together and all are incomplete.
Im not saying it isnt a good sub but I would have described how the castle was pulled down into the abyss. I think that is an intergal part of the castle itself. Which sounds like if fleshed out it could make it into a different form of Hell or whatever that sub was.
I would have described how the castle is now affected by the abyss, how has it changed, has it affected the surrounding creatures any? You said, "If there is a god in this realm, Haukagaron has not met him. Perhaps a liche registers no more here than any of the other dead." Perhaps make it to where the denziens see Haukagaron as a deity and they flock to the castle.
This is a cool apocalyptic setting and can be approached in many many ways. I love how it is executed in a journal tell all but in the end I was hoping for an explanation on the Mars incident, who are Vyrtax and why they want to destroy the entire planet. It says one of their ships fell to Mars and that is what destroyed it but how big was their ship to do that and why were they there to begin with.
I realize that this information is not really part of what the sub is about but I would like to know more about the who, the why, and the how come. Otherwise this is a great way to begin a Supers campaign and the setting seems feasible to have normal citizens turn into heroes or villains. Go to Comment
So true.The only books I can recall reading about the Mind Flayer are the Forgotten Realms books. More than one of them have mention of them but they are never really the Main Main Antagonists. Go to Comment
