Battleleaf Armor

Considering the time and focus it takes to grow and prepare this armor, I imagine it only goes to the finest and most dedicated of warriors. Knowing this, I'm sure others give a healthy dose of respect to any elf they see wearing it.

Relentless Kiss of Molten Rage
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
MysticMoon's comment on 2011-03-28 03:40 PM

Nice. I do enjoy elemental creatures and powers and this delivers, while also adding in characters that feel rage, loss, pride, and love.

My favorite part is the Fury Invoking Mantle: The wielder is not immune to this blast, and as such it is only ever used once. Then the sword gets a new bearer.

A sword that can vaporize its wielder in a suicide attack has crossed over into a new class of uber. :)

The Serpent's Teeth

This could make for an interesting recurring villain. A knife that continues to find and strengthen a succession of bad guys, with the players not realizing right away that it is the weapon which is the real enemy.

I heartily agree that content is king.

As for the rest, I am still trying to find the most effective approach for my own writing. I have sat down and written stuff from beginning to end without any attempt at organization. Some of those were received well and others weren't. I have tried doing bullet points and filling in the details but those never do well for me (I suspect that it creates an intellectual distance between me and my writing that shows through; writing code and writing subs are two very different things.) Lately, I've been doing an initial 400-600 word intro and then iteratively adding more to the end over the course of a few days. Then I go back and look for holes and do some minor tweaking and editing. I've found that if I don't finish something within a week, It'll never happen.

I think the journey to understanding how best to organize writing is an individual one that we all must travel down if we wish to improve. There are no simple formulas or easy steps. However, subs like this are helpful because they provide food for thought on this journey. Go to Comment
Edgar the Ever-Wandering
NPCs  (Minor)   (Travelers)
MysticMoon's comment on 2011-03-16 05:55 PM

I really like this. There are enough little details about Edgar to highlight his personality and how he has responded to adversity.

Possible plot hook: Edgar is wrongfully imprisoned. He fully expects to be exonerated, but only after his trial, which will be in about six months. How can he prove that keeping him locked up will only spell disaster for the locals?

Excellent. The important members section adds a nice level of depth. This situation creates the perfect level of tension for a great story or campaign arc.

I really like the image of lotus hammers. Wish there was a picture to go with it.

The backstory is great and adds the kind of depth that I like. Go to Comment

Good points to keep in mind.

"Fools Rush In" is a particular weakness of mine and something I fight against (trying not to go too far in the other direction where I get so lost in the details that I lose that initial excited energy.)

Even though my focus right now is on pure fantasy, your work is so evocative that it makes me want to read through all the Locastus subs.

There are so many ways the mayhem these critters cause could bring about difficulties and misunderstandings, that they are sure-fire conduits to adventure.

This sounds like an item that a thief wouldn't want to boast about - I could see it making the rounds as each successive thief steals from the last. Probably why the thief was sitting alone.

I like this item and can see a few ways of using it in my own game.
