  • Christian will not leave his vigil at the tavern as he waits for his daughters, so the PCs are sent to a grove he knows of to collect spices. A knowledgable character might realize that this spice (I used star anise as my model) has two varieties, one poisonous the other safe. They may find the remains of someone who was killed.


  • Eva is in constant demand and cannot leave her forge unattended besides. She requests they search for a black liquid (I used naphtha as my model) which is flammable (for her forge) and used as a solvent (for her metalwork). The group will be offered a wide array of hunting knives setting out on their expidition, as no other weapons are made. 


  • Allie resides in the temple at the center of town, which is where the cemetary is. Only a quarter of the cemetary is occupied by bodies, and the remainder is an open area where the 'wedding' will be held. Clearing out the weeds and rats gives characters an opportunity to discover what is amiss with the cemetary.


  • It's custom in the village for a boy to go into the forest and bring his lady a token to show his bravery for her. Jessie is less than physically inclined, so Allie will send them to the most dangerous portions of the forest when they start becoming suspicious and the new moon draws close. 



The ultimate goal is that on the night of the new moon the players are being hunted by crazed villagers, and run to the village to find it in flames with half the population dying of poison thanks to them.

I agree with Cheka. I would be more interested in a story of how the cloth came into being than how it was found, but the writing and the idea is great.

30 Bases Of Evil

PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2011-07-18 06:16 PM


An infinitely practical list with some good extra thought. I'd like to see some places that are not typically thought of as bases of evil. None really come to mind at the moment though.

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.

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

I try to scroll past the current sub's rating without looking at it because I don't want to be influenced by what other people think of the sub before I read it. I would rather develop my own opinion. Like you, I would feel bad. Go to Comment

I have always been unclear what a HOH is, and how or why I should use it. I think it may vaguely be like the Gold on reddit, but I have no idea. Is there a sub about this somewhere? Go to Comment

As long as your sub is not too old.

It's not just crawlers that can up the view count - I know that when I publish all my subs have 10+ views already. I Edit them, submit them to my private workspace often, leave, come back, look at them, re-read them, refresh the page to make sure the chat is still working... etc. so by the time I publish it has a lot of hits from *me*.

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.

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.

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.
