Bank of Sharmaprastha

The effectiveness of this bank will depend on the type of currency used - as will the need for it. Does the government mint it's own coin? Does it print paper money? Are there inflationary or deflationary pressures? What is the form of taxation? Are there "asset taxes" that that bank can automatically remove from customer accounts once a year? (the last could be very useful in controlling the amount of cash PCs have while still allowing them to gather outrageous amounts of loot.) Go to Comment

Mixed bag of things - some good, some not so much. The torch expansions mentioned in the prior comments would be fun. The thing is, some of these items (the wallet, for example) are just things you would expect from people in some settings, and aren't really items in their own right. There is nothing special about the wallet - just the contents. Go to Comment

Nice, difficult thing to pull off. I'm impressed with the concept (and the translating!) The fox should be fairly easy to use - and could be expanded quite a bit (what can one of the "extra" tails be used for? What triggers the form shift?) Looking forward to seeing more. Go to Comment

Nifty story - I agree with S's comment about discovering that Cal can actually perform magic being a bit of a let down, but not a terrible one. Go to Comment

very interesting. Lots of ways this can be customized. Members might be deliberately misinformed, rival cults could find them and trash each other, the local authorities might change and feel a need to eliminate them... Go to Comment

This is one of the best pieces I've read to date. I laughed out loud several times, scared the cat and dog, and got some extremely funny looks from my partner. Go to Comment

These are great. The tunnel-hound in particular could make for some great byplay in a scenario. Go to Comment

Odd reactions to this one - I find the "real world" details less believable than the shapeshifting. First - Children's Protective Services is a state-based agency - there is no way a child taken by CPS in one state would wind up in another. Secondly, CPS would have no jurisdiction on the Rez, or among the Dineh. Third, education requirements would come from the tribal council, not state law. Fourth, cocaine isn't a problem in Northern New Mexico or the 4 corners region where the Navaho Nation's lands are. Heroin and alcohol are.

Quibbles, perhaps, especially given that you've drawn a strong character. They bug me a lot, though - about on the level of having New Amsterdam in the Hanseatic League. Go to Comment

Nice - I can think of several ways to use the examples - the court/law one is especially good. Go to Comment

Sweet, and lots of ways it could be emended for different campaigns. Love the idea of the contents changing with the moon - of course, in a setting where the planet has more than one moon, things could get really complicated. :) Go to Comment

Fantastic for gazetteer-type documents when describing a world. Every city has it's own sets of characteristics, social and physical. While the terrain around it will determine a lot of it's economic and social character, that's not something that residents boast about or mention much - cultural events and landmarks give NPCs something else to talk about, aside from their plot importance, if any.

Why only a cutlass? If it's for naval warfare only, that makes sense, but wouldn't light cavalry find this useful as well? Go to Comment

Very, very good. I've been working on some glass-related ideas, and this gives me a lot more to work with. I'm thinking of riffing on the Shattered Orb sect - perhaps some of them have migrated to a more conventional city on the edge of the desert, and run a luxury business. Go to Comment

Raspu10's comment on 2013-07-05 12:51 AM
Alternate plot: Whodunnit?

The PC's are present at the fateful sermon. The local lords (responsible for funding) are deeply concerned that someone is using arcane or religious powers to thwart the cathedral. The timing of the wall collapse suggests an unnatural cause, and they hire the PCs to find out what happened.

Munir's ghost can appear, and proclaim his own innocence. Alternately, the Gods could send a message that something is amiss. Go to Comment

Very funny item. Of course, you could drive a player nuts if Shump gets especially chatty at times... Go to Comment

The lengthy process to do something necessary or a magical scroll needed is inscribed on the other side of a great tapestry and can't be removed. For more fun it could be in the kings throne room. Try to hide in shadows with a 20*5 (yards/meters) monstrosity!
