I love the stages format presented here! Makes it really easy for a GM to utilize the series of events. Also, well done on making "The Event" change the city permanently afterwards. Many scenarios leave out the, what happens after part. The bit about some demons remaining and 'hiding away' after the portal is closed is also a nice touch for an ending, and another beginning (follow-up visits/adventures) Go to Comment
The Guilds of Efeterthrop

Murometz's comment on 2013-10-04 11:56 AM


The Hanseatic League on steroids :)



Some really interesting and original names for the guilds too, which is cool. I like this, there is some originality here, despite the familiar refrains. Could use another edit, as it is slightly rough around the edges as Gossamer mentions.



The first plothook of course is quite fitting. The PCs become in essence campaign managers, bodyguards, civic-planners, etc...and have to deal with the countless machinations of the guilds. Nice city-campaign scenario! And who knows, if the PCs manage the impossible, it would be an interesting follow-up campaign with one of the PCs becoming the True Saviour King...now what? :-)



"Here, no one yells; “Thief!” with any expectation of action." That line made me pause to chuckle.

Tight, detailed, technical and direct! I would run this scenario. I was just hoping for more info on "one of those right-wing militias" to somehow differentiate them and breathe life into the adversary (maybe some npcs?), but I figure that is going into part 2? Also, some twist or other (also Part 2?) Go to Comment

I have to say that the first image is awesome and inspiring. Really enjoyed reading this one. It has your standard-issue "Cosmicness", yet is easy to follow without stumbling over techno-jargon. I got a strong sense of verisimilitude as I read it as well. South Africa, the doctor devoted to restoring the ravaged biosystems of Africa, the techno-nervous system tie-in...it all makes sense! Plot Hook #2 is a nice one, generating suspense and paranoia. Last line is intriguing, regarding them knowing that their species has already been eradicated. Trippy. Finally, I want one!



Well done.

Desert Rose
Locations  (Regional)   (Desert)
Murometz's comment on 2013-09-17 01:00 PM
well-told tale with little clues to give away the surprise ending ("spit the pomegranate seeds anywhere, give each a chance to sprout..."). I do so love mysterious anomalies and legends of the desert sands.

The ending ever-so-slightly reminds me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vORsKyopHyM . If you haven't seen this yet, do so.

Interestingly, this could probably be linked to the Songs of Fantasy codex as well, since Sting's tune seems to be an inspiration. Go to Comment

I like this a lot. The primeval mythology flows simply and elegantly without complications or unnecessary drivel. The Godknife...sacrifice the living en masse for the god's return, or, go thee forth and slay yourself a god. Go to Comment

As someone who has gm'd several (ancient) campaigns in the Nine Hells, i find this a refreshingly original way to get there, as opposed to your standard "gate" or "pit"!

Also, as opposed to Roger Corman, I see this as a perfect Dario Argento movie!! With blood and boobs of course. And nuns. And Demons. And an ever-so-innocent, young and naive American concert pianist, visiting Florence or Rome. He becomes infatuated with a mysterious woman who is on the run from some demon-loving-cultist types, as she is in possession of a bizarre musical composition notebook.... Go to Comment

Reads like a fantasy-world's version (polemic) of the discovery of atomic power, as Scras mentions. That part of it for me, seems to be laid on a little thick, BUT, i LOVE the brave new underwater world you've created here! Some very original ideas and images. Go to Comment

I'm not sure why I never commented on this. A. Its dwarven and B. I love it. Great amount of detail and just the right amount of dwarvishness. I have one of these somewhere in an old notebook, but this one is so much richer! Go to Comment

To echo the others, really cool take on Moon religion, with a strong sense of... "Yes, I can see this religion happening!" Love it! I find myself wanting to know more. The nuances and minutiae and such, and some answers to the questions asked. This has a great inspirational spark to it. Go to Comment

Many of these I've seen before, most of them even right here on the site, but its a well-rendered list with some thought put into it, and it managed to give me a few new ideas besides. Go to Comment
Vitralara, the Mongrelmen
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (City/ Ruin)
Murometz's comment on 2013-08-06 12:25 PM
I've always loved the dnd mongrelman and their vague mythologies. This is as good an expose of how and why they came to be as I've ever seen. Tremendous detail!! I want to immediately experiment with the possible combinations!

The vestige populations of Vitralara is a great touch...men growing antlers, women sporting tiger-tales.

caesar brings up an interesting question. Do they or do they not want to procreate? Go to Comment
Dorgen's Hammer

Murometz's comment on 2013-08-06 12:00 PM
I like the fact that the hammer and write-up seems both "classic" and yet offers something "new". Love the delayed effect. Also love the visual Strolen created of running down a hallway smacking walls (albeit a loooong hallway)

I think my favorite bit is that it is made from a 'hard' (petrified?) type of mushroom rather than wood. And not that it matters I suppose, but I'm digging your pseudo-eastern European dwarven names and the braids/beards/hairstyle descriptors.
