I've seen references to this for months and I always meant to read the whole thing, but, well, you know...

I don't have much to say about this. It seems pretty straightforward and usable.

I suppose a few plot hooks would be helpful to get the imagination working, but I doubt it would take much to come up with something on my own. If you have a player really willing to get into the role, you could have them find it and play up the effects until the rest of the party realizes there's a problem and have to intervene.

I like these kinds of variations that add some depth to what is normally a cliche. Go to Comment

Some interesting considerations. I was once on the player's side of the equation for most of a summer and I agree with what has been said. Game mechanics were mostly ignored in favor of heavier role-playing. I rarely interacted with more than one NPC at a time. I got myself into a few jams, similar to what has been described (no other players to reality check my ideas.) I was lucky to have a creative and forgiving GM.

Good article manfred. I especially liked ephe's idea about using solo gaming to warm up a group.

This appeals to me because it requires the players to think their way past one, rather than just charging in with weapons drawn.

Ghouls are creepy all on their own, without goat heads and intelligence. I like these and hope to find use for them.

This was pointed out to me after I was 7 days into a goal of posting for 8 days straight. I should have known MH would have something covering the idea ;)

So I'm tacking a few extra days on my goal to do the 10 in 10.

For some reason I've been more successful with "8 in 8" than "10 in 10." Going for my third round now, but I also wanted to give this sub a bump because it is such good advice; even if I am just a lazy bastard who gives up at 8 :) Go to Comment

I think 8 works for me because it's a psychological thing. It feels like a full cycle, starting and ending on the same day a week apart.

Great suggestions with the bubbles and the calendar, though. Go to Comment

I could see using this as a base of operations for an arc in a campaign.

I'm find it amusing that  "The Diety of Humanity (not the species, but the quality)" is a devious, backstabbing bastard. :)

The technique reminds me of spear drills and was not as easy to learn as it seems. It's nice to see this weapon get some focus. It was such a critical component of warfare for so long. The haiku are a nice touch and say something of the practitioners. Go to Comment

WWMWBI - Grain Went Away
Articles  (Resource)   (Game Mastering)
MysticMoon's comment on 2012-03-26 08:19 AM


It might be interesting to take this a step further. Grains have gone away, massive animal and human die-off has occurred, and civilizations have collapsed (outside of fishing based ones.) Time has passed. Now, some other plant has begun to fill the niche once held by grains. What might it be and how might it affect the development of new civilizations? The nation that first learns to cultivate this new species may quickly become a rival to the great coastal and island nations. New land would open up for exploration. Ancient ruins and lost artifacts would abound.


Alternatively, what if a group of wizards had managed to modify some sort of mold or yeast to grow as a food crop before civilization collapsed? A single nation with the ability to weather the loss of grasses would hold much power over the starving masses surrounding it and be a cause for desperate warfare.

WWMWBI - Someone Invented a Printing Press
Articles  (Resource)   (Game Mastering)
MysticMoon's comment on 2012-03-11 11:58 AM

Nicely informative. I did not know about the Catholic Church's attempt to require licensing in order to control what was printed. Reminds me of some of the recent efforts to hand control of the Web to media companies through draconian legislation (SOPA/PIPA.)

I agree with the sentiment expressed elsewhere that the World Wide Web is causing a shift just as great as that of the invention of the printing press. More than ever, the barrier against each person having a voice is shrinking (for good and ill.) This site alone is proof of that. And just like with the printing press of old, the power of the long-entrenched is being challenged.

Perhaps a magical equivalent to the Web rather than a printing press could be used to evoke similar upheavals in a fantasy world.
