The 1337 Passphrase

Strolen's comment on 2018-02-05 04:18 PM
I like the idea and concept but not sure anybody would be able to unscramble the letters and come up with this. I would supply us with another version of all of them in order but perhaps separated in octets or something. So it is still challenging and 1337 but perhaps more near the realm that a non-techie could figure it out.

Great concept! Go to Comment

A nice idea with lots of details added in for multiple scenarios and options. Perhaps overly explanatory in parts (you could do this or this or this) but it does show how versatile it can be.

Almost wondering if the plot and the location/people could be separated for added value. The port itself with the locations and people is pretty much a stand alone and not at all required for the kraken side-plot event. In this case, if you stuck with the main kraken idea you could point to a myriad of other port towns on the site and connect them to this. That would expand this submissions reach and give more options on the location of the shipwreck.

All this is to say, lots of things to do with this which is a fantastic thing!!! Great submission! Go to Comment

I like that idea. Made me think of hedge mage types but with some actual training. Fun idea and useful. Spreads it out a little too so some folks can do some cantrips or enhance some skills magically to add more depth to the magic system. Now anybody can be a magic user! Go to Comment

The idea of using the sun like this is a fantastic idea.I am not as well read but I don't recall anything using the sun to this extent. That would be a fantastic world to try and comprehend, game or even write about! Go to Comment

I want to hear of a description on how they are used. How long do they last. That kind of thing. The idea is very generic without any visuals to what or how it exactly works. Newton's third law and all that. Go to Comment

And there we sat, us seven droogs, in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with our yarbles for the evening.

A little Clockwork Orange and American Psycho action. I like it in a twisted, cruel and psychotic way.

Easily usable and transferable to any setting. Go to Comment
The Staff of Man

Strolen's comment on 2017-12-03 08:43 AM
As I read this I saw a vision of a wizard in bonded servitude, much like a queen bee in the middle of a hive. While the staff can create 1000 a year, and I assume that would be at one time in a short time span, I was more thinking like this bonded wizard was sitting in a dark central cell/cave/dungeon creating 0-10 beings a day in whatever configuration the "master" wanted. They wizard would give the geas to follow the command of the true master and the master would give "orders" to the wizard depending on the need.

For what purpose, I didn't get that far, but they entire idea of a renewable source of servants is pretty fascinating! Go to Comment

I got the sauce.
No ketchup.
Just sauce.
Raw sauce.
Boom.

Sorry, had to be done.

But I absolutely love the idea. Food is a vital thing in many stories/games so having something defined like this as a continuity and an indicator of culture is awesome.

I have been playing a bit of Clash of Clans and the builder base has a sweet ass Night Witch that summons bats in a radius. Favorite attack. I can picture this very nicely. Also a good wedding trick.

Strolen's comment on 2017-11-28 08:46 PM

The village of Ashen's Fall has always seemed to attract an eclectic bunch of spirits and undead. The village was named after an epic battle that took place on the south end of town. Thousands perished as the old kingdom of Ashen made its last stand and lost hundreds of years ago. There are priests permanently assigned to the village because it is such a nexus of paranormal activity and undead creatures that move through their small streets and bustling market.

Over the years a Banshee Willow has grown deep in the woods north of the town. Over time its power has expanded and drawn restless spirits and even animated skeletons from the battle of Ashen's Fall. They are raised from the battlefield in the south and make their way north...directly through Ashen's Fall.

Can you feed the sleeping/dead animals to others and they are put to sleep just the same?
Is the poison in the thorns (blow darts) or once removed they don't retain it?
Non-coagulating so handy putting on blades to keep those wounds seeping.

Nice additional danger for any world!! Go to Comment

Executioners need love too!

       By: Murometz

Oazduke's Vengeful Head.

The head haunts all headsman and executioners.

A floating, bloody head, long separated from its body, is a particular legend among a very particular group of people, executioners, specifically those that chop heads from a block for a living. It was that infamous highway robber, Oazduke the Vengeful, who when finally captured and put to the axe, screamed his foul hex, seconds before his head flew off.

"You will know it is me when I'm through
A curse on your ilk and on you!
May my severed head haunt you eternal
Frightening you headsmen infernal!"

Years later, not one but two(!) weary, puffy-eyed, spooked, headsmen, haunted day and night by Oazduke's insufferable severed head, approach the party cleric in order to hire him to exorcise the ghost head once and for all.
