Those are all great ideas Zylithan and I do llike them. Perhaps in a rewrite of the item or if I create another one of it's kind it may have a similar effect. Thanks. You are more than welcome to use it and abuse it as you will for any game you plan to run. Go to Comment

I see that as being the perfect reasoning behind the history of traditional rose gardens. Why are they so popular? Why are there so many? Could it be that long ago it was rummored ot have magical or healing properties? It is very possible and feasible.

Also, as manfred said, being a gift from the Gods even something as mundane as a plant could not be exploited in the manner with which you speak. Thinking of real terms trying to destroy every rose in the world would be a dauntless task that I would think, fail. Unless you flash burned the entire planet but then nothing would be there anyway.

There are always consequenses for rash actions. Being that it is still a random growth, even if there was only one bush, it is still random whether it will grow or not. Go to Comment

This was my very first submission to the site, back when it was forum only and held a dear place to me then. Sadly I had forgotten about it until it just popped up in my email. Thank you for enjoying it Moonlake, I'll need to review it some to see if it needs another edit. Go to Comment

The Coast Is Not Clear
Plots  (Nature)   (Single-Storyline)
Mourngrymn's comment on 2012-03-17 08:25 PM

I echo most of what has already been said. This is a round and round good throw in plot for any scenario. It can even work in a sci-fi setting like Firefly, Fading Suns, Babylon 5, etc with minor modifications. Such is the role of a good sub and plot. (just for thinking that I threw in another .5 for its functionability)

To me what makes this such a good plot is not that it is a basic, enter bad guys, thwart bad guys, find out good guys could be actidental bad guys due to motives but that it could be a one or two shot side plot thrown into a much larger game or it could turn into a grand scenario when the players only intended to stay for a few days in this waylaid town. Kudos.

I love the idea of evil protecting itself against good, portraying it as being good vs evil. Go to Comment
Here Be Spiders!

Mourngrymn's comment on 2006-05-04 01:09 PM
I think this shows definate promise. I would like the spiders to be detailed more, as well as the venom spider.

The illegal portion of this is that someone is milking these spiders for their venom, not illegal there, but they intend to use it and sell the drug illegally. Any drug, regardless of where it comes from can be seen as an illgel operation in certain kingdoms, countries, etc. Hence, why it is illegal. Go to Comment

I generally like this. Having watched Pirates of the Carribean last night gives me a sense of oddity for a woman pirate but I'm sure it could happen, right?

Not a bad job. Hmm wonder what happened to her father? And since he went missing with all the deck hands, how did his journal make it back to his daughter I wonder? And why when she was taken to be executed did they not retrieve the book, if it was what caused them to come looking for her? Just curious. Go to Comment

While I would tend to agree with fellow strolenites, the thing that bothers me the most about this is the formatting. I can always look past been there done that type of submission as long as it is written well, punctuated, and formatted in a legible manner.

The non-spacing of each paragraph is rather bothersome to read for me as well as some of the names used look very familiar to me. I can't put my finger on it, or my minds eye so to speak, but I have read more than one book with some of those names filtering in them somewhere. Could be a coincidence...

The Braclet of Salinin

Mourngrymn's comment on 2007-02-16 04:10 PM
Again, I realize this is very old but needs to be dusted off. It has promise but I dont know where it is. It is very choppy and sporatic to read as Zyl said. It sounds to me like it can be a good post but tehre are more negatives to it than positives.

Fix the spelling/ grammar/ and sentence structure and it would remarkably be better. Go to Comment
The Seeing Stones of Asthmir

Mourngrymn's comment on 2006-04-21 05:00 PM
Ok, while the grammer kind of killed me I think I like the beginning of this item. It has some spelling and grammar issues and is far to short a description for something of this magnatude but I think it has definate promise.

A little more history into why they were made, how they were made, did the gods kill the king in such a manner because he had them made? Ripping out his eyes seems to me like it was a punishment for seeing what he shouldn't. The future isn't for mortals kind of thing. Go to Comment

Nice job Ria... Go to Comment

I have so forgot about this in the conversation to the new site. I always wanted to vote but failed ot do so.

This one has so much potential for gaming purposes it is scary. I would love to see my players faces when I describe the ice crusted people hanging from the poles. Kudos Mike... Go to Comment

Simple yet interesting all at the same time. I like the difference of making it fantasy creatures instead of your basic horse race. Kind of like the Triple Crown meets Quiddich. Go to Comment
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Mourngrymn's comment on 2005-11-03 04:39 PM
I really like this item/ weapon. I agree that the first ability while explainable is a little excessive. Auto hitting has never been a liking to me. Now giving an greater descreased ability to defend against it may be a better option. The bigger/ heavier the weapon the harder it is to defend against the BlackHeart. While a smaller, lighter weapon may have a bonus to defend/ attack agaisnt the weilder of the BlackHeart.

I like Strolens idea of the gem showing the inner nobility/ honor of the weilder by how bright the gem glows. If a gem is dull and has no shine or glow, then you know the person weilding it will possibly show no quarter and is only out for on thing.

4.5/5 I love it. Go to Comment

Dubious Instructions

Found written on a torn single page…

“Lay thee patiently and still upon the ground, contemplating the Leper Star in the firmament, 'neath a crescent moon, ‘midst the graves of a boneyard 'til the G’na-Shennu come crawling up from the foetid earth. Fear them not. Let them rage about thee, casting ghoul-dust from their chalky talons and scalps,'til they calm, and so begin to whisper their secrets. Then shall they solemnly withdraw into the earth once more, in peace."
