27-Many of the coins are counterfeit

It will take a trained eye to detect them. Spending any large amount will most likely mean a good chance of getting detected. Rulers would move to eliminate this problem as soon as possible to keep the economy stable. Not to mention the receiver of such coins would want to speak with the PC's too. Go to Comment

This will help when giving PC's a lot of loot but not wanting them to just buy everything they cane think of. Go to Comment
The Lord of Blood, Dracula
NPCs  (Major)   (Combative)
Stork's comment on 2014-12-21 11:25 AM
I have to agree with Mourngrymn about the rollercoster ride of details. I also want more. Dracula is one of the most famus (if not THE most famus) villains ever and deserves more.

None the less I give a 4.5 to this. There is a big history to this and I like that (just want more).

Ted, you opened a BIG can of worms. I would love for you to really flesh this out and not only add the detail but also the supporting cast and some level of detail on them.

I think this should be more than just one submission. After all, Dracula deserves it. Go to Comment
Legacy, Part III - Delta Company
Articles  (Fiction)   (Gaming - Genre)
Stork's comment on 2014-10-15 07:55 PM
This part just doesn't seem to flow right.

"The driver leaps from his truck. Kevin looks at his watch and sighs. He’s late enough as it is. He takes off running."

I get the feeling that he has slowed down and is ready to throw in the towel but then he is running all of a sudden. I think I know what you are trying to get across but I don't know how to change that part to improve it.

The other thing is "Kevin will never be late for anything again." kind of comes out of no where. I think that there should have been a little more build up of the being late and how he wants to stop himself from being late before that statement. This may be addressed in the next segment making this comment null and void though.

The story is incredible though. There are so many loose ends that I NEED to know what happens. Go to Comment

7 Things about Team Building
Articles  (Fiction)   (Game Mastering)
Stork's comment on 2014-08-21 11:26 PM
This is a great summery for the writer to get there characters in order before the real writing begins. With this kind of well rounded group, it provides a way to get whatever needs doing done. It always seems it is easer to find a reason to NOT be able to do something (you cant make it too easy for our heroes) than it is to INVENT a way to do it. The Tank is much better choice than the Brain to threaten a person for information. However, the Brain might be able to give the Tank information to make the job easer.

This is also a great guide for a Game Master to guide their players into certain rolls for great gameplay. Imagine a party coming into town and none of them wanted to talk to the local people (the Face) to get information, rumors, bargain for prices, lie there way into the Dukes party, exc.

This will help me greatly! Thank you very much for this information. Go to Comment

What a great "drop in" to any campaign.

This is the best reason to have PC's come up with a deeply guarded secret for their characters. The plot hooks could really hit home to the characters.

Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)
Stork's comment on 2014-06-30 06:29 PM
This is an interesting twist on the simple Zombie, making them useable again on higher level PC's.

I have to say that it was a little hard for me to read and comprehend. I think that it is more me and my ADD kicking in as my meds wear off then the way you wrote it.

The idea is superb though! Go to Comment

These type of posts are the most useful to me anyway. Being able to browse and choose one that fits the seen is so mush better than forcing the seen to fit the details encounter.
Thanks for the effort on this. Go to Comment

I do not think I would use this. But, I think that using this 'build up' to activate an item that players have acquired would be interesting. A sudden unexpected action that helps the party during combat could be played as an unexplained mystery or subplot. Add to it, the fact that the action might not be the same each time. Go to Comment

Stork's comment on 2014-03-16 09:40 AM
Even if the PCs don't befriend Goblins, one or two of these might be found in the 'spoils'. New PCs tend to want to save everything. I can see them carrying around a box of snot for weeks and getting in trouble with a passing elf party while carrying a shrunken elf head.

GM: The elves demand the shrunken elf head and all of your gear as a penance.

PC: "I will try to bribe the lead elf with my box of Goblin snot." Go to Comment

This is another that should almost be required reading. These are simple things to do and Valadaar gives excellent reasons behind each one.

An African tribe called the Ik throws their children out of their homes once they turn 3. They are left to fend for themselves with no help from their parents at all, and to survive, form groups with others their age. These groups only last a few years, and every so often the individual will join a completely different group.
