I was hoping for a tad more from this when I first saw the title, and seeing that I tend to not enjoy most 30 subs I began reading this with trepidation. However, with a few events happening lately this sort of hit home so I read it regardless and find it rather helpful. Someone should have put this up long ago.
I applaud you Cheka for writing this, as only a few of the original hard core Strolenties will appreciate this for what it really is. Kudos.
Oddly enough I read this two days ago and seemed to not have voted or commented on it at all. I like it, the backstory is quirky and detailed enough from a single perspective it reminds me of why I love backstory. Even though it might not be a story that the players will ever find out it is still a much needed bit of context to any sub I think. Kudos to you.
I have never been a huge fan of the 30 subs personally and there is little I can say that hasn't been said previously. However, and yes this is a blatant plug but linking one of my subs put a smile on my face and makes we want to revisit it as I said I would to flesh it out with more Travelers. Not how I would have expected possible contact of said Travelers would be but its an avenue I didn't think of when writing it originally.
Ok... I like it. It has been a while since I have read one of your subs Cheka, mainly form me just not being here. And I can see that you have improved wonderfully. The 5 room dungeon is a good choice for this idea and I give kudos for linking multiple subs within. I congratulate you even, something that is not done often enough.

The dice rules kind of turned me off but only slightly and the mass amount of hugely epic items that are up for the taking at the end. Personally I could do without the mass storage of magic at the end but that is personal and nothing to take away form the sub. However, the Sword of Fear is marvelous. Its simple has no huge munchkin effect and has a decent amount of draw back that makes this a "I wish I would have thought of that before." item.
This is a grand idea. Yes it needs work, yes it sounds VERY similar to the Forsaken from WoW, and yes it is not publishable worthy. But it has SO much potential please, please rework this. If you need help ask anyone here. Hop into chat or PM someone and we will gladly help you. PM me I have so many helpful ideas for this and would love to assist you.
