There is something of the slowly growing, moving ice of a glacier in the way she's written. Go to Comment

Another excellent, well-written plot.

I can see a lot of possibilities for using these rings as seeds for adventures. Two young and foolish (and rich) lovers contract with the PCs to find these rings, which have been around for a hundred years or more and play a role in many a Bard's song. This complicates things later on when one is abducted for ransom during their first anniversary. The other disappears shortly afterward (teleported) but not before pleading with the adventurers to come to the rescue.



Just having the players investigate all of the old tales in order to track down this one-of-a-kind item would be fun. Especially since so many of the original details would have been changed to make the stories more exciting and romantic. And perhaps the rings' powers have changed over time based on the attributes of their owners.

As others have said - a good, simple, and useful idea. Could be useful in a "find the dingus" adventure, where the players must track down the tuner stone so they can find the marker stone, which has been buried near the dingus.

So many ways to mess with players' heads... I like it.

As we recently observed, an assault on Strolen's is nothing more than a nuisance. The Citadel can be completely wiped and yet it will return, just as it was. :)

I like how the possibilities are laid out along with the motivations of the different players. This background could spawn a number of adventures.

I'm torn on my vote for this one. It shows so much promise and gives such a tantalizing glimpse into a larger setting. I desperately want to know more about the Wrekk, the Golem Wars, all of it. But, there's not much here and likely never will be. Go to Comment

I agree with Melvins Cat: this would be fun to play as a mistaken identity. Not only would the characters feel compelled to save a child, but it would add the mystery of tracking down the real father. Even better if there is a chance one of the characters is the father but finds out through the course of the adventure that he is not.

It is amazing how such a short sub can instantly start the wheels turning. There is just enough detail to take this in so many different directions. When I read this I saw a whole larger plot where the priest is a con man who ran off with the money, yet he is being conned by someone from the shadows who's ultimate goal is to sew total chaos. What other matches could be thrown on this already volatile situation?

For some reason "... cooked and half eaten farmers strewn about the house" cracked me up. What is wrong with me? :P



I know this is a very short and minimal sub but there is something about it that just gets the wheels churning. So many possible ways this could go.

I like the mystery. It gets the wheels turning.



Perhaps the corpse went the way of Yoda or "Ascended" and is now trying to look out for its descendants. Being non-corporeal, it is having a devil of a time. What luck for it that the adventurers caught its attention. Now it will follow them around, trying to get them to listen (unintentionally causing havoc in the process) until they agree to help sort out some injustice for its distant progeny.

A minor piece, but this could certainly be the hook for a larger adventure: "So you say you found this armor in an Orc hoard, eh? Well, I might be willing to go easy on you if you take care of this little problem I have with the kingdom next door. I can't get involved directly, you understand..."

Talk about a sub just begging for some additional ideas.



I think I would make the curse activate whenever the mage was alone and/or outnumbered.

I love how inbetween the bits of sarcasm are little gems of ideas. The sub may be too subtle for the sane soul to grasp, but the Strolenati can't help but fill in the blanks. This makes me want to start adding ideas.



I think we should do a Quest on writing a new version of a fragmentary or cliche-ridden sub. (An even better example would be http://strolen.com/viewing/Arrkrash).



I can't help but give this a 5. It's such a golden piece of history. That, and the voices tell me it really does contain clues to the lost treasure of the Templars and one day I'll crack it.
