Plots  (Duty)   (Side-Quest)
Silveressa's comment on 2011-07-16 11:11 AM


At first the plot seemed a little railroadish to me, until I got deeper into it and noticed there was a lot more freedom of choice (and consequences from those choices) then first apparent. 



The plot as written can work great to introduce a thief NPC to the parties group, or even replace the thief NPC with a player character rogue if the GM is feeling  especially creative.



The extra system less stats for the NPC's involved were a nice touch and makes it easy for a GM to quickly give them more system specific attributes without needing to come up with them from stats and the initial description.



For those running a higher tech campaign a similar basic plot concept and adventure based off of this can be used with minimal effort. (I can imagine a similar plot unfolding on one of the rim worlds of Firefly or back water markets in Star Wars.)



Nicely done, and a plot I will be using in my Warhammer Fantasy campaign rather soon.

A neat addition to any alchemists arsenal, although I do agree it could stand to be a little longer. Go to Comment

A great way to spice up an otherwise dreary township, and the kind of hidden in plain sight villain most players will never suspect. (or even believe when they find evidence incriminating the woman)

Nice Christmas themed sub. Perfect for the generous angel, and Grinch in all of us. 5/5 Go to Comment

Interesting, however a bit more explaination into the nature of the crystal would be be nice. Can it be undone of the owner wills it? How many souls can the crystal hold? More importantly is the crystal indestructible? If it is destroyed does the soul (or souls as the case may be) return to it's original bodies or go on to the spirit planes?

(Perhaps just detailing the crystal as a separate sub would be better)

This does offer some nice adventure hooks though, especially if another thief manages to steal the guild masters greatest treasure and then accidentally break it... Go to Comment

A nicely adventure to spring on the party after they have become attached to a helpful NPC that accompanied them on adventures in the past. For a variation one could also substitute a relative of one of the PC's to add a more personal touch to the adventure.

Like others have said, this character has potential, although she does seem very powerful for her age.

I agree with what Ancient Gamer as far as her "perfection" is concerned. Perhaps increasing her age to 140+ (she is an elf after all) would help explain where she gained such skill with magic and steel?

The idea of her being unable to control her magic makes for a nice start, perhaps maybe add in a few minor scars from her training with a blade and battles up to this point? (maybe even an old injury that acts up once in a while?)

Some more detail into her personality and emotions would also help round out the character more.

A few questions to help inspire you:

-How did she feel about selling her self out for assassination missions? Was the first kill easy? Did it bother her she was perhaps making someone else an orphan just like she was? Has it occurred to her she has become no better than the person she is seeking vengeance upon?

-Why did she do assassinations for so little coin? (depending on the setting, usually 7 silver is barely enough to cover a hot meal.) Was it because of her morals and being choosy on the contracts? Her inexperience? (One would imagine a spelling slinging sword master for hire could command solver hundred gold a contract easily)

-Have any of her contracts effected the political atmosphere of the surrounding kingdoms? (perhaps causing the war you alluded to?)

-Where did she meet her true love and how? Did he willingly leave to fight in the war? Was he drafted? (some kingdoms were known to draft peasants into militias to defend their borders) Or were they separated when the enemy forces ransacked their town?

-Why did she not fight in the war herself? (With her combative capabilities she could have marketed herself as a mercenary with ease) Was it due to beliefs? Fear? Other obligations?

-What has she done during the years of her travels? Has she met anyone of significance that has changed her outlook on life?

If you can cover some of these questions and flesh her out into more of a fully developed
character I'll be happy to change my vote much higher. Also run the spell check option before submitting to help iron out any more spelling errors. (This character has the potential to be a 4.0 or higher with more detail and a good overhaul.) Go to Comment

Nice update, the changes make her feel much more "real" and give some nice plot hook ideas. (I could imagine the PC's traveling with her as she searches the war torn kingdom searchign for her lost lover.) I've also re-voted to reflect my approval of the changes. Go to Comment

A nice place for some lighthearted adventures, and likely to make most characters (and players) rethink their views on goblins being "little better then rats and other vermin."



Good plot hooks as well, and quite a memorable main character, I can see his accent and mannerisms sticking with the party for a long time after the visit.

More Plot Hooks



One of the more prominent merchants in town accidentally left his wedding ring (or other bit of precious given by his wife) in his clothes when turning them in for a wash; and now he's desperate to get it back.



The hunt is on for the halflings and rogues within the party to sneak in and find the ring before it gets tossed out in the wash water and before the merchants wife notices it's missing.

Simple, twisted, and scary once people realize the depths of the items power.

Having this item be cherished above all others by a well known rogue could easily lead to many greedy chars attempting to steal it for themselves. "If the leader of the thieves guild value it that highly it *has* to be worth a fortune!"

I am curious though if the demonic possession of the creature makes it indestructible or if it simply teleports away when damage to itself is imminent. Go to Comment

A sweet idea, perfect items to reward a paladin, or any other character with a mount. A few of these will be making an appearance in my Fantasy campaign. Go to Comment

This kind of place works perfect for a "lost valley" on the outskirts of the explored territories.

Very nice, I've been needing a lich for an upcoming adventure and this one fits the bill nicely. Given he is so close to a human skeleton I can imagine him posting as just another corpse in a dusty corner of his mansion, or one of the mindless skeletal horde he doubtlessly controls. Go to Comment

A fun idea and can make for an amusing curio at the local alchemy shop. One small nitpick, is the misspelling of "balloons" as "Ballons."
