VireGoron Sword

Pieh's comment on 2003-10-02 10:13 PM
A goron is a large rock eating creature from the Legend of Zelda video games. Dethl mountain is a rip off of Death mountain in Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time. Rustus is the very non-goronish name of the goron who uses this sword and apperently sells it. Those spells and (at least some of them) taken from a DnD book and the others are words thats sound like they would cause fire damage. and this entire Sword and npc and who knows what else is rip-off bs.(just so you know).

I'm not sure there are any redeeming qualities in this one. I think the last line hits it on the head. It's almost like I was handed an overly generic, staple, cookie-cutter, bland, stereotypical wizard, then given some totally useless information. When given the information I looked up and said "Whut?" then I was told: Oh... Just act like Gandalf.

Titans are cool. I don't see the word 'Apogee' nearly as often as I would like to, so kudos to that. It feels like someone threw Lord of the Rings into a blender with some extremely watered down Greek mythos, then poured this interesting piece into a sippy cup. Meh.

It has been said many times but I'm afraid it must be said again. This site is for ALL role-playing games and this looks to me like a Dungeons and Dragons style item. You should look at other entries and develop a format so that people who dont play D&D can use the item, because its actually not a bad idea. And definetly mention exactly what any spell you mention is capable of.

Shadow Walk - Allows caster to travel via shadows up to 100 +50ft/level at a speed of (I dont know.).

or at least something like that so people can use it. Please fix. Go to Comment

Nice one. A bit of religious conflict is always a fun thing to put in a game, I like this little adventure that could easilt be expanded.

Nice one. I have a bit of trouble with the part where it assumes players are signing an oath into a rebel order and then pick up a stone involuntarily. It's not a huge issue, it can easily be remedied by providing a proper hook into the rebel base. As for the stone, I'm actually certain at least one PC would try to pick it up. I like this. Nice and concise, with lots of room to expand. Good work.

Armor of Huran
Items  (Armor)   (Combat)
Pieh's comment on 2010-10-09 08:31 AM

I liked most of it, with the exception of the very last line. I got a good visual of  Huran and his armor, his precious armor. However, I don't think his dying words would be enough to add a lightning strike. Especially dying peacefully, but not all tales need to be tragic.. Solid submission!

I love the title on this one. Though one has to wonder why a Necromancer would summon a Demon? Makes me think of undead infused with Demonic essences, powerful and unstable, hungering for the souls and flesh of the living. This a great oldie, thanks for dragging it out of its grave, Cheka.

Nine times out of ten, it’s the undead that do the running.

Not strictly animal or vegetable, the Corpse bud is a peculiar individual that shares characteristics from multiple kingdoms and species. In appearance, all corpse buds bear a shape of a large rounded top bud divided into four lateral segments, and a much longer, narrower bottom bud, also divided into four segments. Between the two halves are a set of four radial limbs, rounded on top and flat on the bottom, covered with tiny serrated hooks facing towards the body. In overall size, it’s limbs reach as wide as a spread hand, with the body being as thick as a fist. It is as long as a human hand from top to bottom.

Internally, the top bud of the corpse bud contains a bacteria filled membrane that produces the hydrogen that the corpse bud uses to stay aloft, and a series of fungal gills for the dispersal of spores for reproduction. The lower half of the bud contains a number of fine filaments, as well as a sharp barbed stinger containing a powerful local anaesthesia.

The Corpse Bud mobilizes by inflating its top bud, and steers by rotating its arms rapidly about its body. The corpse bud ordinarily drifts with the wind, orienting towards the scent of recent decay and death. It preys on the recently dead, burrowing the lower bud into the victim, using the anaesthesia in case the victim is dying, and not truly deceased. Once embedded, it releases its filaments into the body, replacing the current nervous system. This gives it full animation of the body, and allows the corpse bud to direct it.

Corpse buds are not a malevolent species, being primarily concerned with breaking down the host body for food, and infecting the reproductive cycle with spores in order to mate with other corpse-bud bodies. To preserve the corpse for this purpose, Corpse buds will seek out dry locations to prevent bacteria from destroying the corpses. This often causes a large number of corpse buds to gather in a single location.

In culture, Corpse buds are used to repair broken spines or degenerative diseases, as the sentient mind will easily overcome the mind of the non-sentient corpse bud. Once infected by a corpse bud, however, removal is usually fatal, and the infected individual cannot reproduce, or risk infecting another. Thus, it is a technique often reserved for the elderly, or a last resort.

Necromancers and other dark sorcerers will often preserve the corpses of their victims magically, and infect them with corpse buds, creating traditional undead as well, so as to seed their lairs with undead both offensive and non, in order to throw their enemies off balance. They will also enslave the rudimentary minds of the corpse buds, and transform the docile things into a plague. There have also been accounts of magically transformed corpse buds with stronger minds and a taste for living flesh, but thus far all accounts are unproven rumors.
