I found myself pausing early on, at them sprouting different body parts of elves, dwarves, gnomes, orcs, etc...



I had to think about that, and I think like it a lot! That's a weird yet somehow fitting lifeform for a fantasy world. Mongrelmen on steroids.



More to come and vote! Oh and puberty is tough for them, geez! :-)

Robber Squirrels
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)
Murometz's comment on 2014-01-06 01:09 PM


I echo Strolen, the idea of thieving squirrels trained to snatch stuff is a great one that I can run with. I'd probably push them towards a darker vibe somehow as well. Perhaps there are (silly or not) legends of a fantastic treasure hoard somewhere in the forest, belonging to the black squirrels. Things stolen and piled up after many many years of thievery. Finding it is nigh impossible. And though the hoard is huge, it has only things a squirrel can carry. A mountain of trinkets!!



I also get a vision of an "annual" unfortunate event in some town on the forest's bawn. Once a year a swarm of hundreds (thousands!?) of squirrel thieves descend on the town like locusts and steal anything they can carry.

Masgolth's Fire
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Murometz's comment on 2013-12-25 12:48 PM


The weapon reads like an artefact from Norse Mythology. Gloriously powerful yet dangerous to a fault. The tale behind it feels dwarven indeed.



Can't help but be reminded of Thor's hammer...as in, no one can lift it, etc...



A truly epic weapon for PCs to harness. Can imagine various scenarios of course...jumping into the sea to do battle, as waters boil and steam all around, melting a snow-drowned mountain, as a PC scales it, to do battle with the mountain's demon, a fire-cult stealing the hammer and erecting it in their volcanic temple, melting the landscape as the PCs traverse a harsh wintery terrain, etc, etc etc...

The idea is a great one, actually. The pseudo-biblical beast, immense beyond measure...

Fixed the bolding for you, as this version came out all bolded.

That aside, I think this is better!! Now you're drilling down a bit more into the "atmospheric detail" of the room I guess, adding a tad more flavor. Go to Comment

I kind of actually like the peculiar concept behind this piece. A location descriptor that is meant to conjure up a particular atmosphere for PCs is a nice thought. I do wish there was something more either going on here as Goss said, or some more on this Corvin fellow and/or some more stuff about the room itself. Go to Comment

Thanks lol This just started as a joke...a dumb barbarian/new pc kept confusing lizard-bulls with bull-lizards. One is huge and nasty, one is tiny and harmless :P Lockwhistle offers a tongue-in-cheek primer for the braincells-challenged.



Another one was going to be a short primer on: How can you tell if the "book" you're holding is an evil magic item, as opposed to a regular book. And so on...

I echo val's first two sentences, and will add that this deck would be a helluva lot of fun to use in a game! The options on what could happen on any given "cast", are many and delicious! Go to Comment

Re-reading over the effects, side-effects, boons, and penalties, and the many possible outcomes, I can safely say that I can't wait to see what rolls lead to what mayhem when these are used in a game setting! Also re-voting with a .5 bump. This deck's awesomeness is growing on me! :D

The name sounds like a military-themed porn movie from the 80's, but the idea is a cool one! I'd expand a bit on the "contents" and "inhabitants" of the fort, if I used this in a game, to make it a little mini-dungeon.



Nice one.

Murometz's comment on 2013-11-13 11:03 AM


The image is splendid, as is the write-up! Imagine seeing this horror from across your campfire, deep in the bog, while standing guard!



I thought that maybe the lead-in tale was just a tad long, but it does convey the horror well. Love everything about this creature otherwise, including its insidious mental assault! To me it feels like this thing has always existed in the deepest swamps, since time immemorial, but finally we have an eye-witness account and learn something of its nature.



Terrific.
