Updated: This is a very good creature to use as a bane against worgs, winter wolves and the like if they are in a setting that you may be using. Any non-natural creature is seen as as prey. Go to Comment
This is a perfect simple creature to throw at any unsuspecting troupe who think they know everything there is to know about the world.
The Gar-monkeys are simple yet an annoyance at the same time. I can only imagine what a small flock of these could do to farmlands. This is a nice touch to add a non-combative creature into a world. Go to Comment
The amulet gives the living control of the undead. Not the undead control over the undead. Once the wearer/ user is turned they loose their ability to control that which they have become. A double edged sword.
But I do love your idea... perhaps I could change it a little. Go to Comment
I see it as the undead, mostly, do not want to be undead. They wish for their eternal release from their state. And anyone who commands them and keeps them from that state are their enemy. They just can not do anything while they are under their control. Go to Comment
The work is detailed enough to be visually graphic which I enjoy. I have used a very similar piece in my own world.
I tend to have books and tomes add experience or skill knowledge to the person reading, should they read the entire book/ tome and let me know they are doing so. It is simple things like this that add flavor into a game. Who needs hordes of treasure all the time. Throw in the unsuspecting book and you have an entirely new form of treasure.
Not only is it inciteful, but it may lead to possible hooks as people may not want that book to be out.
Ah a nice take on an old favorite. The Maltese Falcon if I am not mistaken. A decent version. I will need ot view the real Malachrite Falson to see if it holds up to par with the fake version. Well done Moon.
Unfortunately I read the swords description first and this now seems lacking as I learned most about this group from the history of the sword submission. Still, all around good group and ideal. I love the Templaresque mentality and historical association. Good job Moon. once again of course. Go to Comment
As I stated in the copy of submission. I like it. It takes an old story and adds a very nice fantasy detail to it. It is a refreshing item and idea and definately one that I will attempt on my gamers. If not this, then one of my own design. Once again Moon top notch. Go to Comment
I read this a while ago but this just popped back up. While the idea is interesting to bring real life to fantasy, we all have done this, I really fail to see what is special about the information here. I am voting on the concept of pulling this informaiton in, not of the entire submission itelf.
I know I could do a search on these guysmyself, but that defeats the purpose of detailing a submission on the site. It should give me enough information to want to go and do research on them because I want to learn more, not because I want to learn about what was submitted. Go to Comment
This is a parallel category to water. There needs to be food for these creatures, insects, and plants to be able to survive. Now plants will be food for insects and small animals, while the food chain increases larger animals eat the small plant eaters and so on.
However, in an environment such as a dungeon or cave where there is no light source, very unusual and sturdy plants will be the only few to survive in the dark depths. Will all of these plants be edible for a normal human or non-cave/ dungen dwelling denzien? Probably not. Care must be taken on what food source is gathered in the depths. It could be your alst meal for many reasons. Poison is most common, while it may not kill you outright it may hinder you long enough for another predator to come along and feast. Possibly the result of your death revitalizes the soil bringing nutrients for more plants, drawing more animals for the hunter.
Also to add on that, where there is a food source for one animal, another larger animal will be close by. Before stopping and marveling at the seemingly clear river flow, or the large patch of mushroom stalks standing three feet high, remember something probably uses this underground oasis as a hunting ground.
