16-Animal Refuge

Cruelty to animals easily becomes cruelty to humans. If the area is a wildlife refuge poaching, waste dumping, and smuggling could be common problems allowed by lax rangers. More sinister is the individual who takes in homeless pets for sale to science laboratories or just tortured for 'fun'. It is possible for escaped pets to wind up in the hands of such monsters much to the tears of their owners.

I have to say this because it has been bothering me. What Lays Beyond sounds like the title to a bad porno flick, I am fairly certain the correct word is lies. Normally I wouldn't make an issue of it but ohmahgah it's right there in the title.

Wonderful description, great item, not overly powerful, interesting enough to inspire someone. A great submission.

30 Dragon-Related Plots and Encounters

PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2014-08-29 01:11 PM
This is the best set of ideas for dealing with dragons I have ever seen. I know a DM who never, ever has dragons in his games because they simply are too unusable. This sub should be a must for every fantasy DM, not being able to use a cultural icon is a terrible thing. Go to Comment

Would do well in a lighthearted game. I can imagine some clever solutions involving gnomes and the first mass market brewery. This could lead to other problems such as the supply of rare ingredients.

I liked a few of these, like how the vampiric dog is still loyal to his owners. There were one or two I felt were duplicated in the article, namely the crematorium one and the torturer. Go to Comment

I see the mark of a good submission as me immediately wanting to think of ways to use it. I see the mark of a great submission handing me the tools to do it effortlessly. Truly an exceptional idea, and well thought out.

PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2011-07-27 03:01 AM

I think the plot hooks are where this creature shines, the fact that they leave people who have been consumed with hatred and evil as simpletons creates a moal dilemma. I love the little backstory about "the devil who just wasn't evil enough" but wish it was linked to some other posts so I knew more about this badass woman that tore his mind asunder.

There is something in particular that bugs me (haha... ha.) Im not sure how the mites work, but I think that might be better explained by why they exist. Is time itself made up of little insects? Are they parasites on time? I'm just having issues wrapping my mind around why they are what they are and why they do what they do.

PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2012-02-01 12:09 AM

I really like the uniqueness of this plot. Healing a large monsterous being is not intuitive, and certainly not easy. If any of the players are druids they might be morally obligated to take care of it.

The Tower of Light

PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2011-08-27 01:37 AM

I'm not sure what to feel about this submission. I like that it has several histories and several plots (one of which I like, but putting players in a save or die situation tends to make them unhappy and frustrated). I like the description and the setup alone would make for an interesting mage tower or other building. I just feel like there is something missing from it, like it's a bit too blank to be fully realized. 

I also understand why axlerowes may be upset, but isn't part of a truly great submission how acessable it is? If even a handfull of people feel they are left wanting something that doesn't make a submission bad, but it's certainly going to keep it from getting a 5.

I have an image of a bunch of skeletons of trapped adventurers endlessly falling. They could even be animated skeletons. An epic mid-air battle!

Vampiric Panties
Items  (Clothes)   (Magical)
PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2011-07-17 08:00 PM

Plot 1: A mysterious bout of venerial diseases has suddenly come to plague a city. Spreadding like wildfire and un-talked about by the community. A faulty manufacturer of the panties could be to blame. 

Plot 2: Some pervert has been stealing into the chambers of lords and ladies and sniffing their panties! Finding the criminal reveals he has been able to reverse-engineer the panties to give up blood, which he uses for more sinister necromantic purposes like creating hollow children.

Plot 3: The rivers of a far away town begin to run red with blood, destroying crops, causing disease, and fouling the water for drinking. This happens to coincide with a certian fad in panties several miles away. All the blood had to go somewhere, how can you convince the wealthy people of a far away town to care about this hamlet?

1/2. I both agree and disagree. There are some players that live to subvert the trends.
3. Even if you don't know the rules cold you need to at least be decisive. Make a decision, move on. If a player knows the rules better than you or looks it up later that's fine but your rule is law for that session.
4. You can't make them. Honestly some are just hopeless. As long as they are competent with their own character it's a system's fault that everyone goes "How does grappling work again?"
5. Cute?
6. I think you need to be more clear here. It's up to a DM to know the pulse of things and if things are deteriorating it is best to talk one on one first.

The Spirit of Urban flora
Plots  (Coincidence)   (Side-Quest)
PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2011-07-16 01:19 PM

This is quite the submission. I am not sure it needs all the text you have given it, some simple ideas as far as invading the town and the final battle might have gone farther for a DM than fully detailing it all yourself. The base concept is great, but I think the name is a bit misleading given that it is a fragment of deamon and not actually a spirit of flora. Overall thumbs up.

Highly disturbing with a good origin, but I simply do not see many applications for this in a game. The base concept would be as a foe or trap, but why not use a tentacled monster than irk your players with a construct?

Despatching A Were-Swan
Plots  (Hired)   (Side-Quest)
PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2011-07-16 12:00 PM

Quite a cute little plot, one does not typically think of were-swans or murderous swans. I think the complications are particularly good, but would make more sense if the lake next to the house was a sort of public grounds.
