In Russian myth, there are two Grain spirits. One to give thanks to while eating bread (the good one) and the Pan-like one, the Spirit of the greatest thing that has ever come from grain, vodka. He's a bit unruly, this one. :) They would be fun in an RP. Dueling spirits, so to speak.
I digress. I like your take on some of these spirits, and very much like the Corn-Dolly detail on the Grain Spirit.
Good work! (it must be, manfred wishes to cannibalize it into his setting..one day.) :) Go to Comment
my favorite genre, horror fantasy. Do continue this work, Moon.
Just one obvious comment: the most imperative thing in horror fantasy, or any othe horror genre, is that there are always HINTs and CLUES that speak of great evil or horror. Sounds, visuals, general creepiness are the keys. Ambience and the right atmosphere... The 'monster' almost doesn't even need to make an appearence for this type of GM'ing to be effective (and hopefully blood-curdling), not until its LEAST expected. Fantasy horror, as Moon says is difficult to pull off well. I for one will stay tuned for the rest of this post! Go to Comment
Wow! I didn't see this one, until Cheka just voted on it. Regardless of the sound and heat science involved, it's great! And the first time my players hear that sound (if I get it just right) they will freak!
Thanks for the instant encounter for next session!! Go to Comment
