A good application of the use of an outside source for gaming purposes, ala the Magic Cards, and it does give the Stolen World a deliberately jumbled and chaotic feel. It sounds like a place I would never ever actually want to visit, but is a great setting for stories and games. I like the effective metagame, with the ley lines being hexgrid, and encounters being magic cards. Go to Comment
If you are left struggling for ideas, there are books that are simply the various sets thus far released presented in print form. This can be useful for collectors looking to complete their collections, but it is also useful for things like needing a random monster, plot hook, or whatnot, and then opening to a random page and jabbing a finger blindly to see what it lands on.

Feels a bit rushed, but I could see littering loot piles with these swords, or using them to arm bandits, mongrel militias, and others who were more interested in the number of weapons they could get and not so much the quality. With some being damaged, these aren't entirely all junk. It is the sort of stuff that could easily be found in a horde or tomb, or a dungeon that's been delved before but not defeated. Go to Comment
Some nice swords in here, some are just filler. Either way an interesting read. It has inspired me as to the theme of my first 7 themed weapons, and its going to lead off with one of the swords listed here. Go to Comment
i would imagine a SmartBed showroom to be something like a combination of a traditional mattress store and an Apple Store, all slick and cleanly put together with that spartan aesthetic going on. Like any durable good I would expect there to be trial periods, and the option to purchase a refurbished SmartBed, and trading in your old bed as part of the down payment for the new one. With the Freemium Economy model, I see a lot of transactions going more and more towards the smartphone model. When you get something new, you don't keep the old, they want that back. Refurb and resell to someone else who isn't buying the cutting edge model.
As for a viagra mod, i have no idea how that would work. I would say that erectile dysfunction has been eliminated as a disease in the CE, but it would still come around from boredom, excessive use, etc, and there would be plenty of augmentations and over the counter treatments for it.

The only problem I have is the Saber of the Sidewinder, because a sidewinder is a rattlesnake, and not a cobra. Mechanics are fine, just used to live where there were lots of sidewinders.
I very much enjoyed the themed weapon presentation, and it makes me want to make my own cluster of themed weapons. Also, these are very useful for using in a game where the theme is well supported. Cult of Assassins, snekswerd. Snake handling religious cult? snekswerd. Nightmare evil cultists, hissing snekswerd. Go to Comment
This is certainly gonzo, I am not sure if I should like it, or be a little grossed out by it. I think that is a hallmark of some good gonzo material.
The AI business is a little squick, personally I think I would make it something else, or move it into an abstract, because the thought of a group of PCs hauling around a few buckets of space whale knuckle babies is a tad more than I want to try to run in a game.
It's right there on the line of hilarious and horrible.
I would make sure one of the PCs was basically Mark Wahlburg Go to Comment
I'm not sure I understand his switching places, is his mind/spirit/anima body hopping, allowing him to possess people and then do what he wants with their body and his skill set? Are they transferred to his body for the duration, or are they repressed while he skin-rides them? Does his body lay comatose if they don't? What are the limits of this ability, and can other resist it?
What is his villainous motivation? What does he want from the world, did it wrong it, or does he merely disprove of it? Does he have a master plan?
On a more basic level, he is incredibly average, brown hair and blue eyes, WASP, marine, and that's all we know about him. I want to know more, I want some sort of insight into Castle to know who he is and what he wants. We don't know what he cares about, what he looks like, if he has any mannerisms, any calling cards or hallmarks that someone on his trail would be able to recognize.
Trapped in his tomb, but alive, the God of Pain awaits his uleashing, said to be at the end of the world, he uses his only powers he can and calls to him 2 people, a man and a women to reliquish him from his prison. The man and the women, decieved by them thinking it a person trapped, go after to help the God of Pain unwittily and let him destroy the world
