Red ink is perfect for faking a fatal injury too, and black ink can be used to convince someone you're infected with the plague (and perhaps keep those street bandits from getting close enough to rough you up.) Go to Comment

Extra pairs of ocks are invaluable in a jungle environment for helping prevent jungle rot to the feet.

Other uses are:

-Filling them with rocks or coins to create a makeshift cap or club

-Polishing Rag

-Emergency Gloves

-Bunching up and putting under your shirt sleeves for "muscles" or padding your bosom.

Pantyhose can be used in a similar method and also for the following.

Silveressa's comment on 2008-12-29 12:34 PM
Wrap a rag soaked in oil around the head and light for a quick torch. (It is advisable to drive the spike into a stone wall, floor, or companion you've got a grudge with first.

109. To satisfy the desire for male companionship. (Everyone was think'n it, I just said it! :P )

110. In place of wooden stakes to secure your tent for the evening.

111. For makeshift tapping a tree to get sap or syrup from it. (A bucket would come in handy here) Go to Comment

An incredible sub, truly epic and memorable, a real shame the author no longer frequents Strolens :(

An interesting species that  can make for a memorable encounter. With a little adaptation they would work great as an alien species in some far off corner of the galaxy in sci-fi campaigns as well.

Nasty stuff, I particularly like how it;s non lethal yet of a serious nuisance.

on a side note, other places on the human body are also of similar moist wet conditions as the mouth, so a surprised adventurer could well find this growing in unexpected places after a trek through some. (Between the toes or the groin area, which would be extremely unpleasant for females.) Go to Comment

Handy for not just a bar, but festivals, or any large gathering of crowds, from the jousting tourney audience to the market you;re likely to find at least a few of these people/groups wandering around.

An excellent resource for not only mages guilds and training academy's, but helpful for  mercenary companies and the hired magical muscle some groups need to acquire form time to time.

A great history behind an alchemist that could lead to some fun adventures as characters try to piece together the missing pieces of the mans past and what lead to his demise. (Either because they are his descendants or are hired by one of his colleagues to investigate the mans passing.)

A nice compilation of armors that help flesh out the admittedly generic ones found in most sci-fi rpg's.

An excellent and exhaustive underground area to replace the generic "dungeon" so many kingdoms have are of little interest to the residents, and characters simply scoff at being  thrown into.

I like the plot hooks at the end the second one in particular. Similar to "Escape from New York" except with a lot more excitement and a lot less familiar territory.

An interesting NPC, although she feels a little Mary-Sue to me. I like the over all story arch and premise, it has a fun appeal for those looking for a "future tech in modern day" game.

What's in a Vote?

Silveressa's comment on 2008-04-28 10:15 PM
Useful stuff, although I admit to being mystified on why someone would try and manipulate their subs rating. (Really, a lousy 1 star sub that they manipulate to a higher rating will still be just as lousy as the day it was written so what's really the point?)

One suggestion I do have to improve this thread is to add in a bit of details about how one goes about voting and how many times per day one is allowed to vote.

Other than that pretty handy. Go to Comment

The Clockwork Rat

       By: valadaar

A weapon of war created by an extinct race, this rat appears normal but is a simulacrum - beneath it’s mangy fur is a body of bronze. Commanded by words in a lost language, wherever it goes a virulent and lethal plague follows. The cure is similarly obscure.
