A small tangent into the demented world of the good Captain... refreshing in light of the many would be cloaks of mystery and intrigue Go to Comment

This could stand some paragraphing. While following the typical courtly intrigue, this plot benefits from the weight of the outcome, the fate of two kingdoms. Go to Comment

Hmmm...flamboyant is certainly apt. I am curious as to how a person would go about wearing armor over a great coat. That seems to be rather contradictory.

People this colorful (orange eyes, purple and red coat, and a purple? sword) are generally either color blind, or playing at the fool.

More detail about the sword would be nice, as purple steel doesnt pop up every day. Why did the jealous mage blast the King into a fire elemental, wouldnt it have been easier to turn the slave girl into a toad, or a she-orc, or some other fate?

Being a regular Vampire player, I do have a soft spot for millenia old conservative manipulators. Go to Comment

The Balgrians sound like hippies who got tired of being oppressed by the man...man. Rousingly written for the beginings of a civil upheaval and civil war. Go to Comment
Bra of Holding
Items  (Clothes)   (Magical)
Scrasamax's comment on 2004-10-19 10:13 PM
This is a rather novel item, I must comment. It is also rather fitting as I do know a few ladies who on occassion use their bras to carry small items they dont want messed with. For the most part this is emergenct money for cab fare and such, but the concept is still the same.

One interesting fact is that the bra in its modern form is a relatively new invention, back in them there days, the common thing was the corset, which shoved those puppies right up for everyone to see. Check out a Renaissance festival for an eyefull.

As for the porno, porno music rocks! Okay, it really really sucks, like worse than the elevator music on the Weather Channel, but it is like pornos with plots, no one cares. Go to Comment

Yeah, but it's a magic BRA! Go to Comment

I like the implications of such an unpredictable and dangerous plant. I can see it sprouting in places of massacre and death, as if the spirits of the slain disperse its seeds. Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2010-06-23 07:19 AM
Overlooked, I am glad this was brought up under the sub of the day. I like the wager, being overly complex just as a pair of magic users would have done it (anyone else would have just gone with flip a coin or rochambeau, etc). I was also reminded of the old cartoon Garfield's Nine Lives. Go to Comment

A great and colossal door stands to be opened, what lies beyond that first gate? We are curious and take up torches and arms to see what wonders await us in the cthonian darkness. We will gird ourselves for misadventure and mephit vapours, and the darkest fantasies that lie ripening, newly exposed from their rocky wombs. Go to Comment
Honest Wrekk
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (Any)
Scrasamax's comment on 2006-01-31 10:08 PM
I like the description of the Golem, and the allusion to the Golem Wars. However it fell rather flat with the golem itself lacking personality or character. I can see, however, why the Captain was so taken with the Alchemical Exalted. Go to Comment
Asarth Awrun
NPCs  (Scenario Based)   (Mystical)
Scrasamax's comment on 2012-09-24 10:19 AM
Bringing forth an old spectre from the depths of the Citadel, a submission from 2003, when our standards were not as they are now. Also, one of the former members I would like to see return to the Citadel, if he is still out there, wandering somewhere.

The basic commentary on the submission would be a default link to Moonhunter's Gold standard guidelines, as Asarth is, we have a description and a vague motive and a hint of a goal.

This would be a worthy submission for being expanded on/rewritten for the Citadel at large, so long as it was done in the lofty Melnibonean/Lovecraftian style of the Good Penguin himself Go to Comment
Regal and Leon
NPCs  (Minor)   (Domestic/ Craft)
Scrasamax's comment on 2006-06-04 10:38 AM
Do Regal and Leon have families now, how do they relate to their communities, or is this a case of Brokeback Mercenary? Okay, poor taste, but I couldnt resist. Retired adventurers and mercenaries are rather uncommon in the fantasy world, but then again, their occupations isnt quite door to door cookie sales. Go to Comment
Magnus the Magnificent
NPCs  (Extras)   (Knowledge/Lore)
Scrasamax's comment on 2006-06-04 10:35 AM
This could be the start of a scavenger hunt, with the prize being the loot that Magnus has hidden across the kingdom in his travels. 1000 gp under a loose floorboard in the Moose and Star tavern in Gilmead, 250 gp, 3 emeralds, silver goblet in a waterproof sack in the abandoned well at ruins of Ranald's Village, 50 bars of silver in the attic of the gristmill in Gristwald...

While the bloody horn isnt that awesome, I would like to know more about the Fakasts. They sound like they have alot of game potential and might be related to trolls. Go to Comment
Double Agents
Plots  (Duty)   (Encounter)
Scrasamax's comment on 2006-06-04 10:28 AM
While I think this submission gets bogged down in the minutae of spy versus spy, I think it has an easily overlooked and great idea. Having a previously uninhabited barren region of land suddenly become viable again, enough that multiple claimants desire it. Myself, I would play this as a war of escalation, starting between the two barons who border the terrain, likely both having claimed it, but with no pretense of occupation. The war escalates until it becomes a matter between two kingdoms.

Not bad. Go to Comment

A good City to drop into most any medieval to renaissance setting.
