The Leech Cloth, or The Cloth of Souls

Silveressa's comment on 2011-07-19 05:30 PM


Memorable, and intriuging, I would of enjoyed a more in depth retelling of Tibers fight with The Hounds of Blood, it would be a memorable battle to be sure!



The addition of the origns of the cloth really helped bring the piece togther for me, and gave it a bit of "legendary" status. I can see a few adventures involvign a scholar/wizard attempting to uncover these origins for either intellectual, or more nefarious means.



I also noticed the hint at the origins of Blood Duelists, any chance of seeing this as a seperate sub?

I like the addition of the blood duelist history, rounds out the piece nicely :)

An interesting tale, but liek others have a said, bit  rigid in it presenation and limting in the responses of the PC's  in any given scenario.  Perhaps as the recounting of a tale or as a prelude to the beginning adventures it could work well?

No need to apologize, the only way to get better at it is to practice, and this sub does have potential and is a great quality submission. (Hence the solid 3 rating )



I found to make adventure subs less "railroady" it works best to leave things loosely detailed and simply create the scene for the action to take place, or the event that unfolds for the characters to react to/interact with as they see fit without scripting a specific expected response from them. (Similar to how I presented the plot hooks in my shipyard quest sub)

U.S.S Endurance



A older destroyer dating back a couple decades, this ship was sent into permanent retirement after a new radar and missile guidance system malfunctioned, burning out the wiring on several decks and creating a repair job that simply wasn't cost effective.



Now all but lost among larger vessels, the ships enhanced radar suite and IFF transponder are unexpected prizes for the lucky (or curious) salvager.

Aye indeed, it wasn't my first choice of title, but it seems there was a sub with your suggested title years ago that has since been deleted.

(When I attempt to rename it I get this error: "There is already a title called "What Lies Beyond" weird eh?)

Still you bring up a good point, so a different title seems in order. Go to Comment

Excellent concept, I would recommend keeping an offline copy as well for those times when the internet or wiki service is unavailable and you still want to game. Go to Comment
Organizing Your Campaign On the Computer

Silveressa's comment on 2011-07-11 03:06 PM


An excellent option for when you have continual online access. Unfortunately for those of us out in the sticks regular access to online resources is rare. (most people I know don't even own a computer let alone wireless internet) When going to game at someone else's house it's usually a lap top and whatever files are put on it and no chance for online updating until I return home. (We also have the added fun factor of the net being down for days at a time in the winter after a nasty blizzard, making it even more of a headache to keep a campaign online.)



On the upside the organizational method I outlined will work just as well in Google docks as anywhere else given it's a simple directory structure, (well as long as you have a good connection and don't mind uploading all of the campaigns music files and pics to the site.)

Ram, the Dread Castle Incarnadine.

Silveressa's comment on 2011-07-11 08:59 AM


An interesting place to toss into the local surroundings and watchthe PC's run themsevles ragged tyrign to learn all they can about this "mystery" and make sense of it. 



I would like to see mroe about the Ram and his dire deeds that led to his entrapment within the castle. Perhaps having the PC's helping to free the Ram so he may rest in piece could lead to a small series of adventures or even an entire campaign?

Nice to toss into the loot list of the next random enemy the PC's strip naked looking for valuables. Other then a passing curiosity I don't see it being all that useful or featuring prominantly in any adventures, but for a evenings distraction when the GM has little else planned it could be fun.

A wonderfully creepy sub, and eerily accurate in some parts of real small towns, this will make a nice random list of  oddities for my next Kult campaign, well done!

Some interesting ways to spice up otherwise dull visists to villages inbetween adventures. When combined with a few picks from the Small Town Horror Thread it gets even more intriuging.

An interesting and well thought out sub, with some useful concepts. One can easily drop this into  a fantasy campaign with a little effort, or use the race in something more futuristic. Well done!

An excellent take on unique magic, I don't know how I missed this one the first time around, I can see this being of excellent use in any sea faring games, and perfect for an NPC that will be useful to the group without overshadowing their own areas of specialty. Go to Comment

No matter how skilled your character is in combat, or how ingenious their plan, nothing can overcome the shield of GM immunity. (especially when it's strong enough to prevent the rolling of dice)



#70



No matter how laid back the player or forgiving the character, having said god NPC belittle and otherwise act overly un-intimidated by the character will cause a sharp spike in player (and character) frustration level.



#71



Compounding said action with links to "zero fucks given" posters to better portray just how unaffected by your char they are, will in no way alleviate the frustration.

#31: Saying "Here piggy piggy," to a 12 foot tall troll Lone Star police officer (common in the Shadowrun setting) when you are an unaugmented human and all you have for a weapon is a light pistol will result in the need for surgery to remove said pistol from ones posterior. (Granted the character had the overconfident flaw but there's a fine line between overconfident and stupid.)



#32: Offeirng to tell a dumb blonde joke to all female biker gang is a great way to stop them from immediately beating you senseless.



#33: But will restult in your painful death when, uponn finding out a half dozen of the bikers are blondes and ask if you are *sure* you want to tell the joke, you respond with "Nah, not if I'm going to have to explain it six times."   



#34: When exploring a dungeon If the Gm goes out of their way to describe in detail a seemingly harmless rat, mouse, roach, or other common inhabitant; either run away or hit it with your most powerful weapons/spells.
