Fun idea Echo, I could have expanded upon it, but I felt the humor over misconceptions would wear thin rather quickly. If anyone feels like continuing with the theme, by all means, go for it. :) Go to Comment

It took a google search for me to decipher the unintended innuendo, and now I find it too funny to change. :P (I'm more familiar with the terms "caressing the flower/double clicking the mouse" ;) )

I like the idea for another 30 sub, I'd enjoy reading some of the inspired bardic tale concepts others come up with. Go to Comment

The poetry passaged are supposed to be fragments from each song, thus the meter is slanted more towards how it would sound if sung in particular lilt or speed rather then plainly read.

(much how some real life songs sound poorly metered when read, but beautiful to the ear when sung) Go to Comment

Aye, I have musical variations as well, a couple of them in finished form, others as rough drafts some still a jumble of notes . Given I only play the violin, the couple I have compositions made for are set to various violin styles.

(Since bards play a variety of instruments I mixed up the musical instrument descriptions to make each piece more unique/fitting and realistic.)

If anyone *really* wants me to, I can post the complete lyrics for a few of the songs, although I honestly doubt more then a scant few (if any gms) would use them in their entirety. (After all, what player wants to sit for several minutes and listen to the gm recite, or attempt to sing them a song?) Go to Comment

Ah I completely overlooked the similarities in the name Valador to Valadaar and assumed you were referencing my other unintended reference.

To clarify for those too lazy to Google a quick explanation:

Slay the dragon: Slang, A euphemism for male masturbation.

Caressing the flower/double clicking the mouse: Slang, A euphemism for female masturbation.

In light of this confusion it makes Valdaar's original comment, and the lyrics as written all the more amusing, beautiful! Go to Comment

This one I had trouble posting the first time due to a "name already exists error", the original is still on the front page, no worries :)

Lousy website formatting removed all my paragraph indents, I tried replacing them with line breaks and now every line has a line break! Will update again when this is fixed down the road.... Go to Comment

Aye, back when Kult was copyright of Metropolis ltd and still on its 1st edition.

I'll see about uploading the others sometime, although they do get more graphic and disturbing with each novel. (Which, in the case of a Kult game, is usually viewed as a good thing. ;) ) Go to Comment

Silveressa's comment on 2011-01-12 07:04 PM
I really like the idea you and Echo have of a mans dreams tying the fog to him as he tries in vain to destroy a kingdom, threatening the entire continent on his mad rampage. It could work well as the focal point of an entire campaign if done right. Go to Comment

Silveressa's comment on 2011-07-29 12:44 AM
It's unlikely someone with half the powers of a god would even need the mist. (Unless you mean someone like Hercules, in which case it would likely depend on what he was attempting to gain, and even then the cost would likely be taken from his human half because the god part would be pretty much untouchable I would assume.)

Silveressa's comment on 2011-01-13 11:09 AM


Wow in depth, with enough info to base an entire campaign around. It's nice to see an unusual enemy that has a fresh approach to achieving their goals, and really make players struggle to get a grasp on their capability and motivations.



A couple quick ideas to improve the appearance/presentation:



Putting the headers such as appearance, confrontation etc.. in bold would help a bit  to highlight the different sections of the article and make it easier to find a particular area when skimming during a game session.



Also, putting a line break in between each plot hook and bolding their titles would make the last text area a bit easier to read/navigate. (as it is it's a bit of a wall of text towards the end)

An interesting npc to accompany the traveling snake oil salesman and draw a nice crowd of interested onlookers.



Perhaps seeing some plot hooks added to the sub would make for a nice enhancement?

Gnomes of the Singing Wood

Silveressa's comment on 2010-12-24 10:05 PM


A unique take on a gnomish subclass, and can make for a refreshing change in the usual wilderness encounter.



Perhaps giving them some type of musical related magic would help fill in the missing gap? Perhaps they have found a way to combine bardic magic with that of regular mages?



A song of burning passion may possibly set a target on fire, or one of a raging river make those enemies in ear shot feel as if they are drowning?



Giving them a little bit of offensive power (which they learned so they don't suffer the same fate as their ancestors) could make the odd group who looks at them as little push overs rethink their assumptions rather quickly. (Having a group of singing gnomes come to the rescue from a bandit ambush would also make for a fun encounter.

@Dossta:



 



It's integral to the setting. Basically humanity was all humans until a virus, combined with the reawakening of magic across the world caused a % of humans to mutate into either Dwarves, Orcs, Trolls, or Elves.



The history of the setting goes on to mention that occasionally two parents one race will give birth to a child of a completely different race due to latent genes. (referred to as "spike babies.")



There's also a small % of people that undergo mutation during puberty from human to a different race because of the same latent genes.



I'll see about working a brief "as you know Watson" explanation into the back story for readers unfamiliar with the setting, thanks for the suggestion.
