There are rumors of a hidden glade deep in the forest, ringed by dozens of towering oaks, each with dozens of eldest lupine dendrognaths leering from their trunks. And in the center of the glade, stairs downward.This only explains the possibility of why they are in this one area not the rest of the wilds.
I don't think it explains it enough to make sense. If that is the only place these things are found then its perfect but by reading it it seems they are scattered throughout the wilds in a random half hazard order. It still doesn't give a reason why they are made or why they only attack once. Unless I am simply missing it somewhere.Go to Comment
This bespeaks a bit of Final Destination where death itself causes random almost innocent events of chance that cause the most horrific ends. Wonderful item. A tad bit interesting and flavorful. To bad it usually ends up in death, I would make it not so detrimental unless kept for a very long time. Perhaps the random accidents get increasingly worse the longer the item is used. All in all though I liked it.Go to Comment

I like this but am not blown away by it. It bespeaks of prettmuch an any guided just with a bit of background. The excerpt from the retired guild member is good though. It brings out that normally adventurers are frowned upon and the guild is seen as a grand thing. However the inner monologue of the guild is the exact opposite. The guild is seen as a bunch of lazy thieving a-holes that their only compunction is to sit back and take money from those who actually work. A typical union of the modern era if you ask me.
Its good I just dont see it as being epic.Go to Comment
