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
An interesting organization, but I tend to think that any vampire worth his fangs isn't going to delegate control of his blood supply to another vampire. Among the undead, blood is power, and giving that power to another would roughly be selecting who you want to betray you. Go to Comment
Explained well with a suitable background. I can see enterprising players trying to figure out how to recall the spear, and the effects that it can be put to when they do succede. An all round solid item that isn't a blazing sword of slaying. Go to Comment
I don't like the 'you can't use this without permission or nasty people will come and beat you up' aspect of the armor. AS for the Kyters, I coudl see there being kind of a goldrush on their natural supply of ivory, millionares spending a thousand gold pieces for a dozen eggs sort of rush. Go to Comment
Updated: I've had this in the Works Hidden section for a while now. It is a generic take on vampires and uses elements of my home campaign. I must admit that the text wanders about and to me lacks cohesion. Tired of working on it and it's time to toss it out to see it if floats or sinks. Go to Comment
"Binding the Life Coil" is an ancient quasi-mystical technique rediscovered to prolong one's life at the expense of one reproductive ability. It is a simple magikal technique that anyone can learn (a skill or feat). The promise of near immortality or a lifespan of a thousand years or more makes everyone want to learn it.
This technique has a price though, the amount of immortality is in direct response to the strength of ones reproductive spirit. Those that have never breed will live longer than those that have. The use of the technique makes conception difficult, if not impossible. So you trade the future of your society for the chance for you to see much of that future.
