There used to be a tower there, but it is gone, along with the rest of the city. The only remaining link in that pocket world is the pentagram where the ritual was performed, and that is buried beneath the hill. I probably should have included more detail on that.

Otherwise, you are correct. There is a tower in every other pocket world and they are capable of acting as gates (if anyone could breach them.)

I am working on a follow-up submission, a 5 Room Dungeon that should clarify some of this. Go to Comment

I find the first paragraph a little confusing. I think it could benefit from more detail. If I understand correctly, the famed brewmaster was revealed to be the bastard son of the king. But, by who? His father, the king (and, if so, why did the king abdicate?) Or, his father, the one who raised him (and why would he be taken seriously?)

Aside from that, I like the piece overall. A fun, non-campaign-shattering quest. The kind  that I would like to throw at the players just to see how creative they can be in finding a solution. I would probably throw in a rabble-rouser who was going around and telling the commoners that the king was still brewing but the nobles were keeping it all to themselves. 'Cause who wouldn't want to riot if all the good ale was being horded by the rich? :P

I like how the plant is so incredibly powerful yet so limited in practical use. The history is creative and believable. There is enough loaded history behind the plant that any rediscovery will bring up past conflicts. I could see spawning a number of story arcs off of this one plant.

4.5/5.0, but only because of the spelling/grammar errors.

"ewww", yes.

I am in awe of the quality of the prose. A whole lot more showing than telling, for sure.

Lots of potential ideas to mine here ;)

A nice array of items that reveal the culture they came from. I like the nasty surprises for players that just put on random items, like the gold torc.

And "Owlongwilyouphuck"? I'm lucky I wasn't drinking when I read that, or my keyboard would have been decorated.

Nice. I've found that I've become a fan of rules-lite games as I've gotten older and have to juggle around the rest of my life. On first glance the system seems good, although I'd have to play it to say for sure. The zombie aspect is good and gives it a strong focus.

And, I agree; clowns are creepy.

A nice, fresh take on dragons in gaming. This is the kind of adventure that would really push the players to be creative (and the GM, too, as he works to keep things interesting.)

Honestly, there were a couple of ideas I left out when I wrote this because I didn't want to overdo the gag. There was the history of the pioneering war leader who invented the tactic and then there were special padded leather jerkins used to cushion their landing (which they were trained to quickly release).

Of course, I hadn't considered the efficacy of pissed off crocs :) Go to Comment

I know I'm easily amused, but the image of a croc sailing through the air as a projectile just tickled my funny-bone and I had to run with it. Go to Comment

I like it.

I couldn't help but hear golem's voice from the old Rankin/Bass animated rendition of the Hobbit speaking the "time" riddle while I read it.

Getting the honey then flame jars in a row would be quite the shock. How diabolical.

My favorite quote: "Getting a foe to generally criticize Sallvian personal hygiene or cooking appears to be equally effective and is perhaps less difficult."

My favorite item is the Violent Sandals of Golan.

This is an excellent sub. I agree with EchoMirage and Silveressa (I would probably go with option "B" if I use this.)

This would be a great plot starter - freshly loaded with loot, the group's warrior buys the "best" liquor of the house, only to wake up the next morning in jail with no memory of the things he's being accused of.

The only other thing I would add is to make the sub more system-agnostic by rewording the parts about making a Will DC check and inflicting Constitution damage.

Hooper McFin's Two Shot Portal

       By: dudeington

Now, this ol' ramblin fellow tends to walk his talk a bit too far down the train sometimes.. So I'll be brief in my recantin' of how it was my Tavern "came to bein'" on the multiverse as a weave of it's own spell.. And how I'm even alive to tell the story!

You see it's simple really, trust me.. that's my specialty, keepin it elementary. And you can trust this old Bard.

Anyway, this one night these wizards get a ramblin' on about the temporal exististance of space and time and how it could be manifested in a weave of super dimensional space. whereupon the folded space would give rise to an infinite number of entrances and exits to one or many spaces. Now, seein' how my talkin' sometimes get's locked into the way us folks used to talk back in the ol' west. These wizards didn't know I was a master of the word. and I had heard everything they said. They were also a bit over the wagon, while I was steerin' the show.

So that's how it came to pass, I struck a bargain with the wizards. They come to me in the morning and conjure up their idea into reality and I'd pledge them my life, my existance.. in essence my soul. but in a much nicer sense of the word. So they came by in the morning a half remembering our talks the prior evenin'. And I recanted their words verbatum, and that's how it came to be. The spell was complete that afternoon. My tavern would be the super dimensional cube that would exist in this weave of space and time, folks could come and go as they please, knowin in mind some of the rules and limitations set forth.

A few of 'em as follows.

No feller can be causin a ruckus inside any of my fine establishments, as always rule number one god damnit.

n' second the portal works kinda tricky. When ya outside ya cast the spell and lend your will to luck a bit and regardless the doors to the bar will appear, the windows a luminescent amber.. you can hear the chattee but ya can't see in. And the catch is the door might be locked, in which case you chalk it up to lady luck and go walk off and try again in an hour. Now most times the door pops right open and from the outside you always come in the front door, immediately greeted by myself or one of our many fine patrons of Hooper McFin's Ale & Steakhouse.

Now when ya cast the spell from inside the Tavern, another catch comes up. The back door is mainly a secret for the non-initiated staff and the regulars but for sake of the prose let's assume we all know there's a secret door in the back with a portal there. Now when you go on through this one, you got two scenario's you oughta be aware of. One is ya pop outside relative to the same spot you came out. The other is, you walk back on into this one or another of our many Hooper McFin's Ale & Steakhouse.

so it's a clever quantum railroad I got my tavern and my people's caught on. But, Hey the show's sure as always goin. ohhh' rutin tootin skidoodle -

** And that's it.. that's the only notes I found on the spell, apparently out there somewhere is a Tavern caught on the mighty ebb and flow of the multiverse. Well. at least I can put to rest my torment as to the condition now referred to as "Hooper McFin's Teleportation Paranoia".
