Very nice, but wouldn't a frying pan with a face-shaped dent have uneven heat distribution and potentially make face-shaped pancakes? Either this allow is extremely malleable or Mariem has one helluva arm! It would make an excellent addition to a treasure hoard and it gave me a laugh. Go to Comment
Mathom, the God of Delays

I would praise Mathom... but is now really the right time? Yeah, I will praise Mathom... when the time comes. Just... not right now. I think.. maybe.. Yeah, I'll wait. Go to Comment
Beltane's Portal
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Magical)
Pieh's comment on 2010-12-07 02:38 PM

I don't think I quite get it. Is this just a big picture frame that flings random items, but if you're really good at magic you can somehow fling fireballs and ice arrows? Where do these things come from?

You mentioned that be called a crossbow bolt through, OK, so desired objects can be selected, but where does one pull a fireball from? Is this a multi-planar item with completely random function ability?

I really don't like this very much, and can't see it being a useful weapon, even in the hands of a powerful magic-user. Does the Lich mount it on his wall and command it to fling fireballs or objects he needs to scry for? or does he wield it as a shield that spits magical effects? Either way, I'm sure with the power you need to use it, your own power would be more effective.

This isn't a bad item, it's just really strange and not clearly defined. You know, I can't even see it being a potent tool for theft because of, in my mind, a crystal ball would be used for remote viewing and you have no control over where the item comes from with this portal. It does give me a few ideas though.

I just found this one and all I can do is echo the previous comments. Good job, MoonHunter, another fine piece of work. Go to Comment
Valois the Vermin
NPCs  (Major)   (Political)
Pieh's comment on 2005-12-14 12:33 AM
It's nice and long and descriptive all right, and I just like thr sound of "Swamp Orcs". The grammar is a bit rough and made reading a little difficult, but its not a bad entry. I also dont see myself using it anytime soon, its a bit too, uh, fantastic.. for me. The idea of this great powerful protector of the Orcs appearing and cursing Valois just doesnt do it for me.

Music during a game
Articles  (At Table)   (Game Mastering)
Pieh's comment on 2005-12-08 11:31 AM
Personally, I love music in a game (especially as a GM). I feel it relaxes me and it helps to ease the pressuse that sometimes arises. Most important of all... when your busy trying to work something out the players will listen to it instead of talking to each other and then arguing (at least my players to) and distracting you. We dont use music much but when we do its a much better experience.

Some of my favorites are:
Blue Oyster Cult -Dancing in the Ruins
Blue Oyster Cult -Astrology
Blue Oyster Cult -Ballroom Blitz (for a barfight)
a few other b.o.c. songs
some Anthrax
Aerosmith -Kings and Queens
and Enya works well

Heh... I was just reminded of the time all we had to listen to was Adam Sandler. To say the least, we had to turn it off. Go to Comment
Luzori Mushroom
Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Mountains)
Pieh's comment on 2005-12-07 07:38 PM
Interesting. I never thought a mushroom could have so many uses. I like it and might use it just as something to serve up in Inns and Taverns. But, what type of materials are applied to Luzeroint to make it glow different colors? Go to Comment

It's just a snazzy name for the submission, they would probably just call it a Tunneling Machine, or something practical like that. Go to Comment

The Banjolele is a mix of Banjo (the body) and Ukelele (the fretted neck) with 4 to 5 strings. Some Halfling musicians have been known to decorate them with small noise-making rattles, bells, and miniature cymbals for extra noise. Listeners liken the sound to capturing the worst qualities of the Banjo and Ukelele. Go to Comment
The Dunshar

Pieh's comment on 2011-02-05 02:30 AM

These guys are a lot of fun! Good work, and: We want more of them!

Note: Jaegarmond as played by Chaosmark in Respite was great fun to interact with. These guys definitely make for good role-playing.

Ok, thanks. I touched it up a bit and it should be good to go. Sorry about the reanimator referance, I've never done anything like that in one of my posts before and decided to try it. Anyway, thanks for the feedback. Go to Comment

Individually I wasn't very interested in these items but put together like this I really like them and would love to hear more about anything Ankorrillian. Bravo. Go to Comment
Haio-Mano (Shark tooth weapons)
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Non-Magical)
Pieh's comment on 2005-11-21 05:15 PM
I like the idea of a weapon imbued with the spirit of a shark. Might be interesting if my players went against some kind of shark spirt barbarian that fights like a shark. Circling and charging, maybe biting one of them. Go to Comment
Cruaunte Sword
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Non-Magical)
Pieh's comment on 2005-11-21 05:06 PM
It could really be nasty to get cut with a notched blade like this but I wouldn't give it more damage, just make it harder to heal the wound. It's an ok idea, nothing too unique though. Go to Comment

Purple deer have begun to appear near the ruins of a fallen city, or other place of power. Hunting the deer is absurdly easy, as their coloration makes them easy to see. The heros prepare a feast from a freshly killed deer find out several hours later that the meat of the new purple deer is poisonous. This can range from cramps and vomiting to the truly sinister and lethal.
