A very simple story and idea, yet brilliant! I like the background and the curse. But I especially love the fact that it never delivers large amounts of damage. I can get a great visual of a cursed character wandering the streets, covered in superficial cuts from head to toe, with bloolust in his eyes. Go to Comment
Awesome idea, Cirruswind! A seemingly low-level magical item that, when used correctly, could be invaluable! I like the idea of using the marker stone as a "homing device" that would allow the pc's to find the target wherever he/she is. Go to Comment
I'm having a hard time picturing the armor and how it actually would function, especially with the damage reduction from piercing and slashing wounds. However, I think the idea is very creative and original, and I could see a druid wearing Derrin's Vest and nurturing the moss. Probably even having conversations with it... Go to Comment
You meet a large number of villagers, walking and weeping beside the coffin of an old bearded man (or adapt to your funeral customs). If asked properly, you learn about an old wizard, a wise man that long helped the tiny village to grow and prosper. Even after death he shows his favour: he gave most of his possesions to the poorer members of the community. All the villagers show him now respect this way. Why do you ask, are you adventurers? (As a last wish, he left a tiny case for the first group of adventurers that crosses the village).
