Axelrowes vote of a 1 was harsh, even in its incomplete form it wasn't that bad. Keep working on this idea. Hopefully he will change his vote. Go to Comment

I can see a lot of fun being had with this one. I think I would give some sort of hints about it to my players before dumping all of their gear into Hell. Maybe the interior reeks of sulfur or it flashes with an unholy light whenever it is opened. It also makes quite a nice garbage disposal until you accidentally free a corpse-hoarding demon.

The other white meat

Pieh's comment on 2009-03-22 01:31 AM
That was amazing! Great work! I look forward to seeing much more from you.

My only problem is that it doesn't really seem to have a long-term solution included. I feel like something is missing from the end of "To market, to market" or between that and the first "Conclusion".

It seems like every other loose end is taken care of except how do you stop someone from harvesting Orc children without killing them? I think the inclusion of a boss-type character behind the whole "Meat" scheme could make for a more solid adventure with a more rewarding end. You need someone to hold responsible, someone that can be brought to justice to end all of this.

As the adventure is, we have a few nameless butchers behind it and the main named NPC is just buying the meat and serving it. He hasn't actually ordered the theft of Orc babies, he seems fairly innocent from an Orcish point of view. They wouldn't just want their children back, they would probably want revenge or to be sure it won't happen again.

I could see the revolted townspeople teaming up with the Orc clan to assure no more children were taken from either side and possible bringing massive legal action down upon the butchery. This would, of course, require a bit more be put into the preparation for the game but I think it would be a more satisfying end.

But I do love most of this. Great new take on an old idea and the Orc naming ceremony is hilarious. Tootie. Ha! Well, I'm sorry if I looked too deeply into this one or I overlooked something important that nullifies my comment. I do like it. Keep up the good work. Go to Comment

I like it. The tone of the whole thing is very nice. I wish that first History section were a little easier to read, but it does contain some high quality information. Good stuff. Go to Comment

I was thinking of the Yuan-Ti as possible worshipers of the mentioned Snake-God but I don't tend to think of them when I think of acid, mostly poison. Go to Comment
Bacon Elemental
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (City/ Ruin)
Pieh's comment on 2009-03-05 09:10 PM
Good stuff! I was expecting something a little different when you throw in the farmer's daughter but the Bacon Elemental is an early morning encounter everyone can enjoy.

@ Grey: I also recall a calzone golem. It was in an adventure available for download on the Wizards of the Coast website, I believe. I played in the adventure in a one session game. The highlights included being attacked by a houseload of animated objects, smashing an Imp into a woman's face, and, of course, eating the dead (but still extremely hot) Calzone Golem! It was a good one. Will link if I can find it. Go to Comment

Pieh's comment on 2009-02-22 06:02 PM
I've been wanting to read this one for a while, and I must say I liked it. I kept getting stuck on the last line of the second paragraph: "Even the fastest horse of the plains can keep up with a run of the mill land dragon."

But I finally got around it and read the whole thing. Very nice work. Go to Comment
Edgar the Ever-Wandering

Pieh's comment on 2009-02-15 05:49 PM
Pretty good stuff here. It doesn't really fit with my idea of curses (Having more power the more wronged the mystic was and coming back 7-fold on the mystic eventually) and seems to be a very powerful curse at the least. I do like the "make the best of things" attitude in Edgar. Go to Comment
Captain Cautious

Pieh's comment on 2009-02-11 08:18 PM
Not bad. I just don't really see how I could use him unless I was running a police force game (which might actually be fun). I guess he would make a good boss-type fight for criminal PCs just when they think they're safe. Really though, not bad, but not your best. Go to Comment

Pieh's comment on 2009-02-08 08:21 PM
I didn't dislike it. But you are right about the near-cliche part. The some more on the family members and motivational details about the devils would have helped. However, it's always nice to see a new sub throw up even if it isn't worth a solid 5 and a HoH. Go to Comment

Not much to say that I haven't told you in chat. I like it, it strikes close to home. Good work. Go to Comment

Weird and usable. They remind me a little of the Cactuars from Final Fantasy. I love those guys. Good sub. Go to Comment

Pieh's comment on 2009-02-05 07:19 PM
I like it. I've always been fascinated by fire, not to say I'm some sort of pyromaniac, but I love the way it dances and sways flicking heat into the air. This take of the different types of flame is a very refreshing submission. Thank you. Go to Comment
Order of the Iron-Shod Boot

Pieh's comment on 2010-12-10 03:57 PM

A nice submission. I'm not really sure what to say about it. I don't want to insult it, but I was under-whelmed. I think I went into it expecting a gritty war story, as I usually read comments first, but ended up with not much of a story. It is a good illustration of what kind of people it takes to fight a war. *sigh* I might just be bitter because the war in Afghanistan recently hit close to home. The husband of a good friend of mine was killed by a suicide bomber on the 8th and reading about such a senseless war is depressing. You get points for evoking emotion, even if they are unpleasant ones. Good work.

Close Encounters of the Planar Kind
Plots  (Coincidence)   (Encounter)
Pieh's comment on 2009-01-28 09:57 PM
This is fun. A simple encounter that could lead to a fear of open skies, cubes, and certainly goblins. If I was to use this (and I might) I would totally go for the full-out abduction experience... Strange pregnancy or seeming impotency, hallucinations, lumps under the skin, animals being afraid of the PC (could be fun with a druid), and all sorts of other ideas come to mind. I think there is a lot more that could be done with this sub, but I like it. Good work. Go to Comment

Voting again. Solid 4. This is such a fun idea to throw in the middle of an adventure. Goblinophobia is an amazing flaw for a player to have, but I would definitely give them some bonuses to go with the experience. Maybe something goblin related, like they can now use a magical item that once only functioned in the hands of a goblin. I'm loving these Daily Highlights! Go to Comment
Twin Lotus
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Combat)
Pieh's comment on 2009-02-15 06:35 PM
OK, First off: That bad news. This sub doesn't qualify for the quest (as the quest is currently written). I think this sub deserves to be in the quest (maybe can reword the rules?). However, right now it says "Don't use your own, there are so many you won't have a problem finding something."

Other than that, I must say this is a neat little item. I agree with Muro and CM about the "The enchantment on the hammers doesn't seem to have any mirror within the maker" (Great wording, CM).

My final opinion is that i reminds me heavily of the weapons from the Soul Calibur video games (This isn't bad, I think they're great flavor pieces). The stats are a bit unnecessary and the alternate origins are nice. Overall, not too shabby. Go to Comment

I'm afraid I don't quite get this one. All I see is three unrelated idea scroll posts. I think you might want to clarify what you want in this scroll. The submission itself consists of "Insert you madness spawned ideas here" and that could easily be a tag line for the entire citadel. Honestly, I'm baffled by this submission. I don't know if I should add submissions and scrolls that qualify as "madness spawned" or just ignore it. Please explain. Go to Comment
