Heretic Fork

This two pronged fork was strapped to the victims neck in order to prevent them from sleeping. They would either have their hands tied behind their back or suspended in air. It would also prevent the person from speaking further and was usually used post confession.

Judas Cradle



This device was mostly used in 16th century Spain. The victim would be placed in a harness atop a pyramid-shaped seat with a sharp point. The victim would then be slowly lowered onto the device, which would protrude into their genitals, often ripping them open. Death would occur from tears in muscle tissue that would become infected, or the victim would simply be impaled.

Lead Sprinkler



The Lead Sprinkler was a ball with holes in it attached to a long handle. The punishers would sprinkle the contents of the Lead Sprinkler onto the victim's mouth, anus, vagina or eyes causing intense pain and even death. This device would contain boiling water, hot oil, molten lead, or molten silver.

Crocodile Shears

The crocodile shears were used to punish those attempting to assassinate the king. The device consisted of a tube with spikes at both ends that would be clamped down onto the victim's appendages. The arterial damage that would occur often resulted in agonizing death. Go to Comment

"These days, only a few Ink Drinkers remain"- why? what happened to them?

"Should the Drinker be gorged on ink, the object or body part passed through it will be soaked and splashed with it"- LOVE IT!

"Some Drinkers have even used this to their advantage, flying into other's faces and dousing them in ink"- so is the ink sustenance for them, or "just their job"?

"Ink Drinkers are not the feared swarms of destruction they once were"- why?

SparK!- I only ask these questions, because I love the concept!!

I understand your idea completely, I think, but could use a tad more explanation to wrap it all up and make it complete. Go to Comment

ask some questions, get some answers. Insidious creatures! Next weekend's game session revolves around a library. I might have to introduce one of these bad boys, just as the PCs find that ancient, dusty tome they have been looking for. Go to Comment

I was going for a 4, until I got to the 'Orders'. Great addition, and great overall detail on submission. You have just officially inspired me to make my own homemade "One True Faith" into a submission.

Theology section is very nice too!

"His words had been captured by several of his followers. They came together to morn his death and compare notes"

This all reminds me of early Christianity of course, the Time of Prophets and the Apostles...before the tenets were codified and set in stone. Go to Comment

Yeah, about that. The rumor texts are the actual "meat". This Kaboo & Co. npc entry is just the bones. I first did the rumors off-the-cuff, then added this submission the next day. Kaboo is actually named after my friend, drumroll...Kabu (he's nosy). I guess this troika could have had better names though :) Wait! hold the phone Scras! I just recalled a certain archmage named "RICHBUTBUSY"!! from the Auchinduin Mine :)

Thanks to MoonHunter for all his (still ongoing) technical help and support! The rumor links now have titles! Go to Comment

I LOVE LABORS OF LOVE!! and taken as a whole with every link included this is breathtaking!

I like the history and the hierarchy...Details are key, and this has details aplenty! It also has a grim feel!

My favorite is Hillbreaker.

Maybe some plot hooks on how to interact with the Clan, but thats just nitpicking.

I also have a fetish for names..and these all fit perfectly. Oh and Annealing is great!

Terrific! Go to Comment

I actually had to read this twice for some reason. After the second reading I realized I loved it! 'an edge' for the city guard is rare. Obviously helps curb crime (thats not why the city is named 'cerb' is it?) :)

one nagging thought. It seems that there are no issues with the amount of these items that can be created...correct? mass production so to speak.

Is there anything stopping Cerb from farming these out to any city that orders a shipment? I mean which town wouldn't want these right? So a cottage industry forms perhaps. Does Cerb become the most prosperous town in all the land? :) Am I making sense, or did I miss something?

these are not criticisms, just thoughts that come to mind.

overall great idea!!!! I have a pc, that refuses to 'check' his weapon at any city-gate regardless of the consequences. This weekend he will be going to Cerb. Thanks! Go to Comment
