short and sweet I like it. Blackmail with this thing could be quite embarrassing for the "dreamer". Go to Comment

30 Drugs from the Cosmic Era

Murometz's comment on 2017-03-24 07:47 PM
Soooo, this is very good! I've always had in the back of my mind to do a 30 drugs submission, but felt I couldn't come up with 30 of them that were interesting and/or different enough. No such issue here. And LOVE all the names and "other" names. Automatic "will use these" score from me. Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2017-03-07 12:21 PM
Fun one! Feels like an old-school magic item. I also like that its an alchemical process as opposed to a *poof* spell effect. For some reason, I find myself recalling that Chimera Quest from a few weeks ago, and figuring that a "Chimera Egg" could also be a "thing." Go to Comment

This was a fun read despite its workbook type of format. I like where this is headed. Particularly like that you mention how things won't be all *that* different because human nature will be what it will be and that history will repeat itself amidst the stars. Go to Comment

Liathghorm Salmon, or the Salmon of Knowledge

Murometz's comment on 2017-02-24 10:22 AM
This is great! Love the write-up. It has that Gaelic flavor obviously which adds to the enjoyment. Love the bucolic feel to this too. Plus what axle said, subtle yet dramatic!! Can go so many different ways with these fish! Go to Comment

Even before all the other info, I really like the white horse with wispy dragons head visual. I get a whole "Questing Beast" vibe with this chimera. Go to Comment

I echo Scras here. Good writing and a clever way to share all this "world info". I was fully immersed in the tale of the sandwich! (which seems to basically be haggis with a shmear of horseradish)

So after watching Westworld, this has a whole different vibe for me than inspector gadget.**

(The whole...leave them alone and they're fine thing, but mess with their code and...look out.)

**Not that there's anything wrong with inspector gadget :)

They remind me of Melniboneans naturally. I'd like to know more about this Snowfungi in the sewers. Go to Comment
30 Mountain Encounters
Locations  (Continent)   (Mountains)
Murometz's comment on 2017-02-07 12:14 PM

Hi ho Hi ho, up the mountain we go!

Some good ones here that make perfect sense! (rope bridges, waterfalls, avalanches, mines, tombs, etc) but I would change up a few such as "other adventurers" (who can be found anywhere) and banjo player (same) to more bring out the "mountain theme" of the submission, and adjust some of the others for the same reason. Maybe the "brigands", are experts at rappelling for example, and attack the PCs from above as they crest a narrow mountain path.

I have to say I didn't love this. As the #1 fan of "unusual" and "odd" locations in the whole world (thatsme), these didn't particularly resonate with me. They're weird yes, but they don't strike an ummnm, "verisimilitude concordance" with me. Ok so there are lots of scorpions (pretty cool). Why does everyone "run around"? Scorpions aren't that fast. Not sure how some of these mesh together. I find myself liking Oxhead best, for its mundane-ness. Go to Comment

No need to be sorry. If you're players enjoyed these locations, that's all that matters! On second read, the town of pathological liars can certainly lead to fun hijinks. :) Go to Comment

As the PCs cross a brigde/tree over a deep river they see the glimmer of gold and jewels lying at the bottom. At further inspection they notice that it is the skeleton of a man still holding on to a sack of treasure. Will the PCs try to dive to get it? What killed the man? Did he simly not let go of the bag he could not swim to the surface with? What cleansed his bones so? Are there flesh-eating beings that dwell in the deep? Can the players resist the chanse of being wealthy for once?
