30 Curses
Articles  (Campaign)   (Gaming - In General)
PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2011-08-27 03:03 AM


These are some very good and well written curses. I wish there was a list of curses that would be good if placed on towns instead of just people for ye olde plote device.

Reading through this I didn't put all the pieces together, but "drow" really pulled it all together and made it something special. I would have liked some inkling as to how he managed to 'punish' people as he does, is it connections? Psychological manipulation? Drugs? D. All of the above?

Why have you not added these to the bottom of the scroll? You need to! *heapings of XP* Go to Comment

I understand that people seldom go to bars by themselves, but that doesn't mean each number is representative of a person but a type of person, and that's why people feel a bit cheated by this submission.

A great scroll, though it looks like it needs a wee bit of cleaning. Go to Comment

I agree the end is cliche but that can always be changed as the DM desires. What really makes this a good piece as the setting and in many ways good settings are harder than good plots (good plots are always tailored to a group of players anyways). It is so well described and atmospheric, as well as able to be used in any swamp.

A very cute idea but you really have to be careful with these sorts of things around players. I don't think it should just give something for free, perhaps the tip pouch is populated based upon how generous you are with your time or compliments. I agree it should be a sort of minor divine artifact. Go to Comment

Now I'm going to go against the grain and say that the toxin is sufficiently powerful. Granted 'instant death' is rare in nature but there should be more dangerous poisons. The creature itself is really rather unique. I would like a subplot where the PCs inadvertently wipe out their food supply and visit a previously safe area to find it has become a minefield.

I feel like this could be a scroll in itself, with a list of interesting insects that would be of use to a thief. Go to Comment

Scavenger's Daughter



This device is the opposite principle of the Duke of Exeter's daughter, more commonly known as the rack, and was created for the Tower of London as the rack was too difficult to move up and down the stairs. Instead of stretching the body, the victim is forced into a compressed kneel and the clamp tightened.

The Breaking Wheel (Catherine's Wheel)



The victim is lashed upon a large wheel, with joints in paritcular places. They are then beaten with clubs, which combined with the pressure points of the spokes easily break bones and joints. The rubbery usless limbs are threaded through the spokes, and the wheel is placed up high for the victim to die of dehydration days later while being pecked at by birds. Mercy may be extended by strangulation of the victim after several blows, or a coup de grace. 



A seventeenth-century chronicler wrote the victim looked like, "A sort of huge screaming puppet writhing in rivulets of blood, a puppet with four tentacles, like a sea monster, of raw, slimy and shapeless flesh mixed up with splinters of smashed bones."

This submission makes me want to vomit, and I'm dissappointed that I'm able to contribute. Good work everyone?

The scroll of secrets

PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2011-07-17 03:06 AM


I like the idea of this as a sort of treasure hunt, a way to encourage players to explore places more thoroughly than they otherwise would. The submission needs some polishing, some sentences don't read as clearly as they should and some words didn't get spell-checked (libaries, buchered). I think the backstory could be more detailed as to why they were so interested in secrets in the first place, but the core idea is solid.

Small. Functional. Usable. A little on the cliche side with the woe is me. Would prefer it be subsumed into a single submission about the three since there is no point in putting one in the game without the other two.



How could anyone not pick up on that pun?
