The moment that turned me onto gaming was back when I was a teen on the school bus. A couple boys a few grades ahead of me were playing D&D in the seat next to me and I listened, enamored at the story (I was a huge reader of fantasy fiction and choose your own adventure books back then) and thrilled at the idea you could make the hero do anything you wanted or tell any story you felt like.

I asked them if I could play too and they just stopped and looked at me for about a minute in silence before the DM nodded, and then they both tried to explain these strange rules to me in a rush which I completely got lost on. (THACO anyone?)

After that I was confused but hooked, and it just went from there. (although I never did get a chance to play with those two boys, I did manage to get my hands on a few rpg books and play with a some other kids during study hall and after school.)

Silveressa's comment on 2012-05-22 06:30 PM
A intriguing little village with a nice twisted undertone, perfect for post apocalypse settings.

The village can also be used without the insectile sub plot easily enough to make for a stop over or outpost to springboard other adventures from. Go to Comment

A well thought out and unique predator that additionally serves a useful secondary purpose in the medical field, well done!


Bonus points for a creature that can be use "as is" for part of an aliens planet fauna in space faring games, or fit just as readily into post apocalypse setting as well.

Nasty and creative, the perfect guardian for a necromancers lair or to ring around a cursed graveyard.

Such a cursed tree could also make for a suitably gory method of execution for a depraved (or mad) ruler. Go to Comment
Lady Evica

Silveressa's comment on 2012-05-22 05:53 AM
A unique and interesting NPC sure to pique the interest of any adventuring group, especially if they are troubled men.

I would enjoy seeing some additional plot hooks to round out the piece, and perhaps a bit more clarity on her actual powers/abilities to make GMing her easier.

An interesting 30's list, especially good for riddle contests at town celebrations or to stump the know it all wizard of the party. Go to Comment

A nice group of barmaids that can be easily adapted to cyberpunk bars/clubs for added usage. I'll be adding some of these to my next run! Go to Comment

Certainly an exotic weapon, and a recount of the battle could make for one heck of a bards tale to spice up an otherwise dull tavern encounter. Go to Comment

A nice plot thrust and development, and what sounds like some fun gun play. Something I've learned with 99% of PC's, usually they'll go down in a blaze of glory rather then surrender, even taking on no win odds to avoid giving up and being taken prisoner.

(In a few Jame Bond style games I've run, I found it's best to mention to the characters capture and escape is part of the setting trope and surrender will never result in instant execution/ no possibility of escape imprisonment. A similar conversation might be helpful to have with your players if you're planning future chances for surrender/capture by the baddies.) Go to Comment

A Fun gallery of PC's that can be easily plugged in as NPC's in most modern day campaigns with minimal effort. Reva reminds me a bit of River from Fire Fly in her demeanor and innocent charm. On a side note don't regret too much about not going with a skunk, chances are she would have gotten it descanted by a vet soon after acquiring it., Go to Comment

Interesting and certain to drive curious PC's to distraction as they attempt to find a practical use for the leech or fuss over their "altered" equipment. Go to Comment
30 Scenes Inside an Arcology
Locations  (City)   (Other)
Silveressa's comment on 2012-05-10 10:09 PM

Excellent list that works equally well in Shadowrun, or as the basic layout of a domed colony/space station. 


A companion list of "30 notable arcology inhaitants" would make a great supplement as well for anyone that feels inspired.

The Cane of Abdication
Items  (Other)   (Cursed)
Silveressa's comment on 2012-05-03 04:57 AM

An interesting change perhaps the magic of the cane faded over time and now the accidents are not always fatal; making this an interesting acquisition for a PC to get their hands on, especially if they're recovering from an injury or want a sword cane to slip past the guards into the palace or thieves guild.
