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.
Both vibrant and down-trodden, growing in prosperity while the empire has collapsed. Very much a dynamic location, and one destined to carry the torch f the old power by virtue of it's economic status and its easily defensable location. Plenty of opportunity as the nobility has yet to cement into place, and the old power structures of the Sohar dissolve. Yes, plenty of room for intrigue and adventure. Go to Comment
