This jet-black cranium contains a single red candle. The handle is a tattered rope looped through holes cracked in the top. It appears to have been subject to intense heat and flame over a long period of time.
The Black Skull wards against normal fires and fire spirits. To thrust the Black Skull, held in hand, into a fire, is akin to using an umbrella to deflect falling water. It will repel flames up to a distance of about six feet, but it does nothing to diminish the heat. Go to Comment
I wouldn't say we don't like stats at all. They can be useful in understanding the properties of an item, if used properly. Don't get discouraged, it's just a site policy (That I think some are overly zealous about) to remain system-neutral and try to make submissions able to fit into anyone's game. All in all, very nice first post. Keep them coming. Go to Comment
I like the idea of a MegaMan style hand-cannon. Though I don't see why it couldn't be mounted on something, like a normal cannon. The description of the device itself is fair, the history is fair, and the idea is fun. Go to Comment
The Vitamin D was an afterthought, I did a quick google search of what the Sun provided for us and Vitamin D seemed to bne the top answer. I didn't delve too deep into the matter. It could just as easily be the UV Rays themselves that these creatures crave.
As for why it attacks the living, well, it wouldn't be much of an encounter if it didn't. But, the reason I would give it would be because of the "scent" on the living. Or, since you mentioned it, Vitamin D. The Soli can sense the Sun creating Vitamin D in the living, and it drives them into a frenzy when nearby. Go to Comment
Update: Finally got around to fixing the formatting. It got messed up when I pasted from notepad, which I had to do due to an error when originally submitting the sub. I thought it was fine, but a few people seem to think it detracts from the sub. So, voila! Also, feel free to point out an annoying typos: There is no longer a spell checker on the submission page and for some reason Firefox's doesnt like that type of textbox. I hope all is well now.

This submission was not intended to be silly, though a lot of mine come out that way. I like the idea of these snakes being what created silver veins, through their excrement or as their children. I did not know real-world silver was not generally found in veins, this is useful information.
These creatures were meant to be a rare oddity with unusual abilities, perhaps more valuable than the silver they live it. The blinding was meant to add more potential for a magical background, I was playing with the idea of a Silver Snake eye being used in a magic item that creates a powerful light effect. I suppose the blinding could be removed if you desire.
You might have overdone it with the sarcasm, but that's OK. I think I see what you're trying to say. It just doesn't make much sense. I'm not sure how to remedy this and make it a usable submission though. Would you suggest toning down the power? A different metallic/mineral origin? Or what? Let me know what needs to be changed. Thanks. Go to Comment
Very fun. My first thought was a story I read in Cthulhu 2000 (a collection of Lovecraftian stories). It was called On the Slab and written by Harlan Ellison. Not exactly the same, but it deals with a giant creature being unearthed after a storm. I like this. Go to Comment
I also liked this. The names are amusing. Though a little too blatant when seen in text, I'm sure no player would ever decode their names from sound alone. Good job, keep the submissions coming! Go to Comment
Pretty cool. I like the idea behind it. But I feel like there are some facts missing that would make it a more complete submission.
Such as: How easy is it to produce? Or how long does it take to produce a batch capable of completely wiping out an enemy? Do the Kel'Regar always produce this, or only in rare times of very threatening wars? When do they use it, and how often? Is it a secret weapon? And, you say it can end up in the wrong places, but that hardly matters if you can get your troops off the ground and just sprinkle away, especially with a 'clean-up' fungus.
I think it is too perfect of a weapon, since it will completely wipe out anything and leave nothing harmful behind. I'm not really sure how you could fix this sub (in my eyes anyway, others seem to think it's perfect). Sorry, it's not bad, but it's certainly not perfect. Go to Comment
