As Dozus said, this reminds me of Japanese Oni.

I really like these kinds of demons. They fit into the broad category of evil and monstrous, yet they also represent a specific archetype.

Definitely an assassin's friend, although I would expect it to be smaller if it was originally used for vivisection. Good backstory.

Fountain of Goats

MysticMoon's comment on 2011-04-05 04:34 PM

I can see a few possible uses for this.

First, a player agrees to start out with an insane character, someone who just finished up their time as a goat. It can be tricky, but having a character who is mad can add all sorts of fun and complications to a story.

Second, what do the players do when they discover that their bounty (who must be captured alive) has been turned into a goat? Especially if their employer is not the forgiving type.

I would love to see how players deal with trying to get close enough to examine an artifact that has such a nasty effect based solely on proximity.

MysticMoon's comment on 2013-08-25 09:27 PM

I am always impressed when someone can base a culture around one central thing, such as glass, and have it come out feeling internally consistent and really creative rather than forced. This is well done. I can't wait to read the related Ouzquin Dremorix subs.

There's enough detail here that I can really visualize the culture and their tools.

I like it; the powers are focused and balanced while the history gives it depth and fully explains its existence.

I love mythical feel. The language rather effectively paints a picture not only of the mythology but also of how cultures can meld together.

I suppose that a priest can only perform that ritual once, though.

Another gem. A horrid, disgusting, assault of evil and madness upon the senses; a fruitful method of tormenting heroes; a vision into the mind of the insane. That kind of gem :)

I must find some way to use this! Such a twisted spout of creativity must not be wasted.

5/5 and an HoH.

As has been said, this is short and to the point. I've been exposed to these ideas in numerous other ways, so I was a little disappointed that there wasn't anything new in here for me. Having said that, this article would be perfect for someone who has been blindly picking up +25 Holy Defenders of Dancing Vorpal Snickersnackiness; something this succinct and well stated should be just the thing to get them thinking about all the things they've taken for granted.

One additional example I was immediately reminded of: the notch at the base of a Kukri's blade is said to be representative of Shiva.

Also: these points are perfect jumping off places for new subs.

I really like this. It's just enough to fire up my imagination. I'm actually kind of happy about the lower level of detail; sometimes it's nicer to be inspired than handed a full platter and this sub fits that bill (follow this partial/mixed metaphor at your own risk :P ). Go to Comment

Lots of very usable ideas. I don't see how I could give it anything but a 5/5.

My First Character
Articles  (Character)   (Gaming - In General)
MysticMoon's comment on 2011-04-18 11:57 AM

I don't remember many of the details of my very first character. Just that he was a Vrusk (think giant ant body with a humanoid torso) from Star Frontiers. My older brother finally gave in and taught me how to play (but only because he was bored and his gaming group wasn't meeting that day.)

I consider my first real character to be a Barbarian from 1st Ed AD&D, built from the wholly unbalanced and completely fun Unearthed Arcana rules. I was probably about 12 or 13, his name was Grunt Slash, and he excelled at wenching and brawling. The biggest danger to his health and sanity was a halfling thief who resembled Tasslehoff Burrfoot in many ways and had "picked up" a startling array of dangerously wild magic items (I think we took his wand of wonder away after he sent someone to another dimension.)

We usually had the radio playing during that long campaign and so a lot of 80's pop songs make me wax nostalgic. I found it is decidedly not romantic to tell a woman that Cheap Trick's The Flame makes me think of a bloodthirsty barbarian. :)
