Now, I am rather offended, and I know I shouldn't make a comment but dammit I'm going to. I have spent a good deal of time coming up with the Falhathian setting, and I will be damned if I see this idea get shot down because I used a German Dictionary to name some cities in it. And as a side note, all of the German named cities date back to the Imperial Era, I was going with a theme there. Aside from the use the name, there is nothing German in Falhath, there are no beer drinkers, no lieterhosen, and I am really mad that Echo pointing out that the name is German has turned my work into Jack-German.

not bad, but I dont see much use for them outside of setting color. I like the detail given to the reproductive cycle but I would like to know what kind of prey they slice in half before eating. Go to Comment
its manipulative, its deceitful, its the sort of thing we look forward to seeing! I like the beads being of limited quality, perhaps Nurin will have been working on some other things with his unlimited budget, or has he gone completely political? Go to Comment
Wow. I didnt imagine that the brainstorming session over a magical staircase would turn outthis good, but then again I guess I should have remembered who I was talking to at the time. I absolutely LOVE the story of the Kiebral, I love the name, I love the scorn and hatred. I also like Chakada the alternate peak and the pool and blessing.
Long Man Death and his refuge were an awesome side quest, the only question I haev about him is how did he get in that situation in the first place?
I would venture that the Knights Templar, and their ending at hand of the French King were an influence. The name is certainly a tongue twister, trying saying out loud. Good item supplementing the Galron stones. Go to Comment
The Bosques Society/ Organizations (Ethnic/Cultural)
There is a pleasant difference in this delving, the PCs are exployers, cartographers, rather than going in for the loot. I think that is a nice touch Taronga.
Some natural hazards within the mines...
Poison Gas - aka methane, leaks up from the earth, miners would take canaries with them into the mines because the poison gas would kill the small bird quickly, and give the miners a chance to escape before they were overcome with the fumes. (This is not the case now, there are mechanical gas detectors) The gas is also explosive!
Scaling - similar to a cave in, this is a large piece of ceiling deciding it needs to be floor. Can partially block tunnels, squish people, that sort of thing.
Darkness - there is NO light underground
Small squishy bite-y things - more than likely white and eyeless, poisonous to nail rare prey, certainly enough to make an explorer sick.
There are some more mundane ideas, I am sure some of the others can help with the more fantastic, if they don't I will. Go to Comment
The telling is good, while the mechanic (mass production) is rather modern in thought. I think there could be a key weakness, say there are 12 first generation sun swords, destroy them and the other 2,000 copies are all going to fail? Seems like a highly viable target of a quest. Go to Comment
i would define a Knightly Order as an organization of fighters who operate under a lawful code and have standing within the lower ranks of nobility. Mercenaries are out since they are paid in coin and do not serve king/country. Good or evil is moot, a knight is a knight. Go to Comment
extra point for the vulture popping. Looks like a few good ways to kill the fungus would be to drink vinegar, its acidic, and should do a quick number on the fungus. All you gotta do is close your eyes and think happy thoughts about not dying. Alcohol might also disrupt the fungus in the airway. This fungus could have been created as a weapon to use against a rival kingdom, by a reckless mage or vengeful fungi-druid. Go to Comment
No, rather than wearing such decoration, the shrouds are worn under their armor and their helms hide their identity. Should a Knight be killed, they are buried in their shrouds, an action that displays their conviction, no mercy, no quarter. Go to Comment
well, it is this potion that some guy in a dark robe gave me. it cracked my mind and made me dig up junk from the 1.0 forums. I was thinking of submitting 30 bar wenchs, 30 children, and 30 horses Go to Comment
That is a good question Cheka. I would say that one of the provisions of the blackmailing, which I did leave really vague would be a life insurance policy. One of those 'If I die so-and-so is going to recieve alot of incriminating evidence' things. THere could also be an agreement that so long as Simeon gets his stipend he will make sure that the lords indiscretions go unnoticed into the pauper's unmarked graves. Go to Comment
Aside from a few typos a very good submission. I like the machivellian nature of the Copo, and reading about the Sarahi, but I think that Texaco's name could stand to be changed. There are Texaco Gasoline Stations where I live and I can't read Texaco and not think of the Red Star. Go to Comment
Sneezing Sickness - A strange plant infection that causes its victim to spread the plants seeds by sneezing them about. Larger lumps of phlegm or saliva sprout is spat out in a sunny place, producing more of the plants. As the Magical version of seasonaly allergies the affliction is limited in term and non-life threatening.
