War Fan of the Resplendent Burning Phoenix

Scrasamax's comment on 2005-04-30 10:16 AM
I like the rich description of this item, and can easily imagine it. Now, I dont particularly care for the power, wafting about miniature fireballs and such. If I might add my idea, such as it is...

Once the fan is activated, one needs only to fan the Fan, as it were, and...ithe edge of the fan is illuminated in a wreath of celestial flame. This flame causes no damage to the weilder of the fan, but deals devastating wounds to the corporeal undead, as well as driving away spirits of illness, the dark, and evil. Such spirits and persons of exceptionally evil character must overcome the radiance of the fan to attempt to attack the bearer.

If folded, the fan can be invoked, and will wreath itself in phoenixflame, but instead of causing injury, the folded fan can be used as an aid in attempts to heal the sick or injured. The great Hero Youhei touched a man burning with fever, and spoke the seven words of the whole body, and tapped him in the seven chakras with the folded fan. The man was alieved of his fever and sprang to the Hero's said completely cured of his illness./i

A fairly solid assassin, generic enough that she can be used in another game just by changing the names around a bit. I like the fact that she took the road of musician over the courtesan's path. Go to Comment
The Isle of Crustaciano
Locations  (Water)   (City)
Scrasamax's comment on 2004-08-07 07:37 AM
This is certainly an interesting setting. I would have given it a higher rating, but I would like to know more about Crustaciano as a character other than being a large crab-like entity.

I do also have a few questions for you to consider. Since the island is mud and silt, what keeps it from being eroded away by the action of the ocean. This might also be what makes the island have a viable port, since a viable port will need to offer respite and protection from storms and rough seas.

I imagined the palaces and shops having an organic look to them, as if they grew out of the mud made of gleaming gold and jewels. I could also see two foot long shrimp like creatures that saw to the daily maintainence and cleaning of the island. The more I think about it, the more I put the animals associated with a reef into the island, a half-moray sherrif, loyal to Crustaciano of course. An octopod creature as a rival, since octopus eat crabs and such.

Just my two cents

This is a very well written plot, and I like the genuine and honest motive of the merchant as compared to the much more common fraud, greed, or trickery that is all too common among merchants these gaming days. When in doubt, follow the camels they know where water is. Go to Comment

Several unique locations, a solid amount of history, some enigmas and an evil copse of trees. How often has the all ranger/druid game been played? Not enough If you ask me. I also like the protection of the trees as the rangers think any of them might be a surviving scion as opposed to being hug the trees love the trees trees are out friends sorts. Go to Comment
The Desert Temple...

Scrasamax's comment on 2007-07-02 09:05 AM
This is certainly an eerie location, one that could set alot of characters and players on edge. Surely something terrible and evil happened hear, a demon, a horror from beyond, the entire place could be infested with ghosts, it wouldnt matter. They wouldnt stay long, they wouldnt wait for me to spring the trap on them. But in this case there would be no trap, the place is simply empty now, but it's magic and enchantments remain.

Scrasamax's comment on 2007-07-02 09:01 AM
I echo Zylithian's comment, I love the way this post comes across as a rumor in a back tavern, and without so much as a single bit of description I can imagine Keep Silence in all of it's crumbling splendor. Nicely done, though I would put some spaces between the various speakers lines to make it easier to read. Go to Comment

I like the prophet, the cursed sword and the Madness of the king. This could come around again, with the PCs seeing the second coming of the mystic bearing peace and a sword. Can they react in time to keep their homeland from being blasted? I wonder about the mystic himself, and would like to see more about him and his apocalypic gifts. Go to Comment

An old sub from the v1.0 citadel, I love the idea of the Pirate's daughter. I can see the lustful and energetic PC and associated player's look of surprise when they discovered that the bonny lass they were giving a good roll to was the daughter of the infamous Pirate Lord Captain Phillen d'Blanc.

Definately cracked, and the stroke of lightning could have really invested her with phantasmal memories dredged together from childhood stories, or might have even carried the dissembodied essence of Porthos the Electromancer! Or she could be as cracked as her shield. People hit by lightning really are a bit off...things just dont click the way that they should. Go to Comment

Next on Iron Chef Armorica, the secret ingredient - Xoct's Sauce.

Looks like the challenger is going to open with a light fennel, sunflowerseed and mandarin orange salad with a dressing of vinagrette and Xoct's Sauce. Oh my, that's fifty GP a bottle, and he's already used two!

Looks like he is going for a Xoct smoked ham, using a mixture of cloves, honey, and Xoct's sauce for a glaze. Using the dragonite chips in the smoker is a great way to smoke food fast. Oh, I agree!

Oh, looks like the Iron Chef is retaliating with a Xoct brulee, notice how he scorches the top of the brulee before adding the schnozzberries. Now that is a master's touch.

But he better be ready, looks like the challenger has added a mixtuire of honey water, cream, and XS to the elemental bowl of ice, looks like hes going to be making blue ice cream and decorating it with a sprig of Misteria blossom, how pretty!

3.5 but +.5 for the Iron Chef play by play this inspired 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?
