Very good, although sometimes people do just meet (I'm going to start out a game I'm working on with characters meeting at a pizza place (which is being attacked by the bad guys...but anyway). The characters definitely should have something that links them together or at least a reason to trust each other. Go to Comment
I really like this idea. I have actually done something like this for the villains a role-playing game(kind of, hard to explain) with my best friend, except the mirror characters were dark versions of the characters from an opposite dark dimension (much like in the star trek episodes). A very good idea. Go to Comment
Good idea, I'll add just a little information on my family's real horse, maybe that will be helpful:
His name is Fatboy(well, now it is, he used to be called Bugle Trill) and he is a retired race horse with bad ankles. He eats too much and had to go on a diet and wear boots(for his ankles) once. He will run around our back yard, but refuses to be ridden, when someone attemps to ride him he will take them to the nearest tree and try to knock them off of him. Now, why isn't anyone's noble steed like him? Go to Comment
I would definitely agree with you. I mean, why not use a broom handle, much cheaper, and easier to find (although, a fantasy hero would look kind of silly caring around a broom handle) :-) Go to Comment
This is probably the most useful world building thing I have ever seen. It is a bit long, but it is one of the most informative role-playing articles I have ever read. I'm using this for my campaign world, Definitely! Great post :-) Go to Comment
Khor are a monsterous and violent race. Within five years of being born, they grow to about half human size and are very, very inteligent. As they get older, they get larger... unfortunately they become less intelligent. After their adolecesence (about seven years), they grow to human size and are of a low human intelligence. As they age, they grow larger, slower, and stupider. Most of them end their lives 3 to 4 meters in height. Khor have been reported upto 10 meters tall, though those elder giant Khor do little but hit anything that disturbs them.
As they age they get larger, they don't seem to ever die of natural causes.
