THe one concept that hasn't been mentioned was that he took the hoarde from Xeatoxx, unlikely but possible. I would expect that Vychan accumulated his mountain of gold by a hearty mix of Manfred's suggestions, investing in human endeavors, raiding the bandits and carvans that don't pay some sort of a protection fee, and following human leads to find lost hoardes.
As for dealing with other dragons, Vychan is no weakling. For his age he is both exceptionally large and dangerous. While he does have a large degree of respect for humans, one cannot forget that he is a large and dangerous creature. Go to Comment
The names make the post a little hard to follow, but that is a minor detail, names can always be changed to protect the innocent. The plot seems solid enough, and with the best friend murderering the would-be groom out of love, this makes th eplot less than predictable. All in all the work is nice, I look forward to what else you might concoct for us. Go to Comment
The only way I could describe the effect of the staff around humans is that the wielder will be percieved to be nasty, brutish, and boorish. This is a basic reation, not one governed by appearance, or manners, they just radiate an aura that seems 'trollish' to the average person. In game terms it would manifest as a moderate to strong penalty to social interation, or would do something like reduce their charisma trait by 50% Go to Comment
well, the basic inspiration for this item came from the racial items of DnD, such as the Belt of Dwarvenkind, and the Boots, and cloak of elvenkind. What kind of racial item would a troll have? A big stick, of course. Go to Comment
While I am all about political malefesence, there is one thing that really nags at me about the SoN and it is that there is no organization that utilizes their unique services. Are they adjutant to the Crown, kind of like a mystically inclined Gestapo, or are they freelancers? Also, I think it might help if there were some hints on how to use them, and maybe some plot hooks. Go to Comment
I think Thaxen would be a fine character, there is adequate beckground. Some his his attributes are rather cliche, especially the orphan part, did someone kill his draconic parent, of was he orphaned by abandonment? I think the fact that he is half-drow and half dragon detracts from the post, and to echo Manfred's thought, his description sounds quite fierce and evil looking, i dont imagine he would be found in most lawful, or good aligned communities. Orcs might be more forgiving... Go to Comment
How it pains me to do this...
Starscream, Transformers the Movie
The Quarsooth smack too much of Atlantian mythos, and they are too arrogant and too removed from the wet and gritty reality of Tarrod. As Moonhunter said (Though I must admit ignorance of his quoted materials) this smacks too much of another source of inspiration. Go to Comment
A treat a treat! How rare it is for a submission to be edited to answer discrepancies. The rewrite of the Kazi's personal view of missle weapons, as well as backstabbing and assassination work well with their basic concept.
