How A Trap Should Really Be Put Into An Adventure
Articles  (Scenario)   (Game Mastering)
Pariah's comment on 2005-11-04 04:24 PM
Good, one thing I'd like to add though is that accidents/natural events can make just as good traps as anything else. And, if the dungeon hasn't been used by anything sentient for ages, then it's almost more likely to have these than an untriggered single-use trap. Methane leaking up though chinks in the walls/floor, a item that is magically electrical falling in a puddle, would both cause a very big boom if the PCs walk in there holding tourches. If it is known that magic enchantments will fade away over he years have a sourceror cast a "half-faded" illusion of a pit over the pit, and under that one have a good illusion of a solid floor. The more ingenious you are, the more realistic the trap becomes, the more the PCs will hate your deviousness, the more they'll understand why not every two-bit punk in the world isn't crawling around these dungeons themselves.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind see a writeup of the Ettercap. Just as long as it isn't straight outta the MM. If I remember they didn't go into to much depth on them. Go to Comment

Good job. I want a copy of this book.

That being siad, maybe, if you are exiled from the order, due to some trangression or another, your book would be burned. The hours you spent scribing the thing wold've been wasted as you watch the well oiled parchment burn. Go to Comment

Yeah, this is basicly a single player (maybe) or an NPC institution. And beyond that 10 years is a good chunk of an advnturer's life. But the death rate isn't all that high if you compare it to the survival rate of adventurers also. Killed by traps, locked up in dungeons never to see the light of day, ect. Go to Comment

Fresh Water Giving Pearl
Items  (Jewelry)   (Magical)
Pariah's comment on 2005-10-29 04:20 PM
Yeah, I like this item too. It is nice and not world shattering when theres only one or two of them. 4/5 for coolness.

I kinda like the fact that it stops giving water after about three days worth of water. It is a welcome refreshment from al the cups of unending water.

One question, would one be able to tell this apart from a normal pearl, and if not then wouldn't all pearl be, if not venerated, at least respected by the clergy? Go to Comment

I'm American, and do a lot of camping. To 'survive' you need about 2 liters, a gallon has a bit less than 4. In temperate climate you could last about a week off of one of these. However, if you are traveling more than 10 mi(16 km) a day you're going to need more than 2 liters. Thats just from experiance though, I know people who can get by on 3/4 of that, and others that need twice that to keep going. Go to Comment
True-Silver Tray
Items  (Home/ Personal)   (Magical)
Pariah's comment on 2005-10-23 09:01 AM
Good idea, One question though. You said that the owner can see the illusions, but also that to see illusions you needed to know and understand what this tray is/does. Does that mean that the owner needs to know this also or not?

Other than that, good item. 4/5 Go to Comment

Good solid idea. And speaking of Africa, there is a place in said continent that the shore is covered in diamonds. Needless to say the gov't/private industries have limited access to this beach to keep diamonds in a relative scarctiy so that they don't devalue. (It's not really COVERED but has a large amount and I'm sure you got the idea) Go to Comment

I like it, its very interesting.

5 for being so totally out there and still making sense. I could see someone invent this.

On a side note, if it did get out to the public you could expect a cheaper or one with a lessened side effect in less than 5 yrs. Go to Comment

Wow, THAT'S where the indefatiguable armies of south get all of their food. I salute your genuis Moon.

Great place, and it could be used as the object of a quest. You get employed by the opposing army to get rid of the enemy's food. Go to Comment

That and I don't think that Hardtack burns too well, you'd have to get in and get the stuff soaked after you tourched the fields and let it rot. Or you could let the worms have at it, but that would only add protien to the soilders diets so I don't think that would quite stop the army, maybe keep them healty but... Go to Comment

I like him. He's a great character wih a great backstory. The description you gave sounded an awful lot like the descriptions the neigbors give after the serial killer next door is found out. Go to Comment

Cosmology and Religion

       By: rickster

The multiple-worlds theory of cosmology allows room for every religion's Heaven and Hell and other planes to coexist, with the similar planes of all the sapient beings of all the worlds in all the galaxies...How often do the wires get crossed, as it were, leaving your paladin in a Hell for hedonistic lizards, for example.
