A fun sub, and perfect gods to put in on a whim to remind the players some cultures may well have religious practices that are vastly different then the players beliefs. (Big Mac and Tw'inki are perfect for a light hearted post apocalypse game) Go to Comment

Fun and imaginative. Some of these items are a little silly, but perfect for a little light hearted fun after a grueling adventure, or just for those off nights when the gm has little more planned then "a random bar scene." Go to Comment

Beautiful Brew

Also nicknamed "one night brew," and "Maloney's makeover" after the original brew master.

Fist conceived by Maloney "Pock Mark" Mckay, a rather average overweight gentleman with bad facial scarring from a childhood sickness that had much trouble finding amicable companionship for the evenings. Before long like most men, he noticed how regular booze, when fed to gals in sufficient quantities would at times change their minds about going home with him for the evening.

Unfortunately for Maloney, the amount of booze often needed for an evening on Friday night would leave him nearly broke the rest of the following week thereafter. After some careful discussion with a local illusionist and alchemist the first of his wonderful drinks was brewed, in a specially enchanted cask.

Beautiful brew, much like the names implies, makes the imbiber appear much more handsome or beautiful then normal, the sweet fruity scent of the brew working on a subtle magical level to make them more appealing as well to both genders. (Something that can cause a fair amount of brawls and embarrassment to first time drinkers of the brew depending on their persuasions) Combined with the increased self confidence only 120 proof alcohol can provide, it helped Maloney, and in time many others, to find companionship without spending a fortune.

It has also found use among those that find their remaining options for nightly companionship dwindling in appearance, and wish to at least enjoy the illusion of a night with a girl or guy more beautiful/handsome than they can possibly imagine.

Another, less spoken of use, is by instigators of bar room brawls. A few drinks before hand and their appearance is such that no one can positively identify them later as the "one who started it." Go to Comment
The God of Small Things
Systems  (Divine/ Spirit)   (Defining)
Silveressa's comment on 2008-08-29 05:38 PM
Very nice addition to any pantheon. While subtle and at first glance relatively harmless, such a god can prove to me more devilishly powerful than even one of the more well known and feared deities of war.

I particularly love the intro, it present the sub quite nicely, one of your best subs yet Cheka. 5/5 Go to Comment
The King is Dead
Plots  (Event)   (Single-Storyline)
Silveressa's comment on 2008-05-02 04:06 PM
I don;t really agree with your assessment Wulfhere of lack of detail. If the entire murder was plotted out here, along with the clues, it would limit the usefulness of this piece to GM's who's players haven't frequented this site and looked at the submission. (It would be hard to tell that until one was already into the adventure, and one well read player could easily intentionally or unintentionally ruin the adventure for the entire group)

As far as the plot goes, it's a nice take on the standard "The king is dead long live the king!" plot line. (The unique inheritance rules are a nice touch, and any gm who doesn't like'em can just as easily ignore'em.) Go to Comment

A nice fleshing out of an otherwise obscure profession nearly every town will have at least one practitioner of, and interesting plot hook.

A nice addition to the evil magic fields, and perfect to mix things up form the overseen vile necromancer. A few more plot ideas would be good, but the sub itself gave me plenty of ideas as it is, well done!

Silveressa's comment on 2008-08-30 04:36 PM
Nicely done, and not too overly detailed that more casual players can't get their heads around it. Perhaps expanding it slightly to show the increased chance of mutations/deformities in birth for the lower level exposures would be good, but over it's an easy to use plug in for post apocalypse rp's.

Endless fun, especially in a steam punk setting. I can imagine a huckster selling this as a device that grants bodily control over goblins or some such. (Especially if he has a trained goblin or halfling dressed as a goblin to help with the ruse.)

Plots  (Event)   (Encounter)
Silveressa's comment on 2008-04-29 07:28 PM
Interesting stuff that could be easily worked into any campaign, although the gm may have to deal with pc's spending several hours investigating an otherwise random natural event (such as #1) convinced it's part of some grander plot hook. (although that could also be an advantage if they have noting else planned.) Go to Comment
The Nempori

Silveressa's comment on 2008-12-19 07:48 AM
An interesting sub race to toss into any space game that needs a little "spice" to liven it up.

I would like to see more detail added as to why they are so insulting to other species during first contact, (beyond insulting their looks anyway) but over all nicely detailed. Go to Comment

ISL 9000
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Combat)
Silveressa's comment on 2008-12-29 10:57 AM
I agree with Manfred, expanding this sub to include a rough description of what the weapon looks like & how it functions would help bring more life into this piece.

Also given the weight of iron spikes (we're talking railroad spike sizes here I assume?) I'm not sure such a weapon designed to launch droves of these would weigh little enough to be man portable by most gnomes or humans without extreme strength.

Also the name reminded me a little of the bfg 9000 from doom, and not really fitting with the steampunk level, although that could just be me. Go to Comment

Another lost gem worth returning to the forefront, (especially in light of the recent quest poll) While not overly detailed, it serves the purpose of "local color" for a magi institution flawlessly, and makes any rather un-noteworthy academy suddenly very memorable,.

Excellent villain, reminds me a slight bit of Jack the Ripper. He;s the perfect guy to work in as a "trusted ally" of the PC's or perhaps their regular Dr. (Before the fire occurs of course) Go to Comment

Silveressa's comment on 2008-05-17 03:40 AM
Delightfully evil, and best of all; he can work in nearly any setting that has a dash of the occult. An update to link to the torture implements codex would be nice small addition. Go to Comment
A Poisoner's Almanac
Items  (Potion)   (Magical)
Silveressa's comment on 2008-05-14 04:00 PM
Fast Food Soda Machine Ice

This one's a real world poison (at least in the USA) that is believed to be behind many of the cases of mild food poisoning. The ice inside many fast food restaurants soda machines has been found to contain more ecol i bacteria than the toilet bowl water in the same establishment.

In it's standard form the ice crystals look transparent with small chunks, the bacteria within being virtually orderless and flavorless, with the sickness onsetting 1-8 hours after consumption.

In small doses a beverage chilled by this ice can cause stomach cramps and mild nausea followed by loose stools and gaseous bloating.

In more severe concentrations the effects can be vomiting, dizziness, and explosive diarrhea Go to Comment

A fascinating NPC, and one that coudl easily prompt the more good hearted adventures to take it upon themsevles to either heal or avenege, especially once they realize the mans capability and how his gratitude could be reapaid...

A nice variation on the "Pern" theme, and with more adaptability and variety, making it much more exciting to use as a campaign setting over the long term.



I do hope to see this updated and expanded upon someday, despite the many years long pause hiatus it's endured.

A nice predatory creature for plains and swamp lands. As a plus it could also be adapted to space faring sci-fi games as a indigenous planetary species with a little work. Go to Comment
