I wish you didn't have the author's note so I could be brilliant and correctly deduce the mash-up. :)

You don't talk about UW-1!

Assuming he slaughtered the elven farmers? Or was he about to when something stopped him and he spent time with them and learned how to cook? Can't imagine an orc warrior knowing which herbs to use at his orc encampment.

This one leaves me hanging a bit. Interesting back story and I want to accept it all, just doesn't have all the justification that gets him from a to b so a feeling of things missing stays with me. Go to Comment

This is a fantastic NPC template. I put it on par with the 5 Room Dungeon in usefulness on getting out a fully fleshed submission.

Will have to see about a Organic NPC quest....

I like the abandoned pass type posts. Always have liked them. Undead is a cool spin and a good base to work on. Enough here to be fun! Go to Comment

Great categorizations of them. Very easy to take this and throw it in a game and have a basic understanding of all the types. Fun concept. Go to Comment
Bird Brains

Strolen's comment on 2014-01-26 02:17 AM
Fun idea. I would call it Fuzzy Biology. Magic with a twist of science.

I did get a little confused about how it works. Not sure the bird seeing the imperfections would help when everything else the bird does is through sense and a little magic. That part felt out of place with the rest.

And I agree it is a great way to allow communication with limits. Not everything has to be hardcore magic!

Gots all the bits and pieces I need. A great character to add to your typical "I go to the bar." Have an easy backstory like this to play with is great. Go to Comment

Perhaps the plague that her parents died of lay dormant in her and her brothers. A small twist could be used that during her travels she past on the plague to a few folks that were susceptible to what she was carrying. It morphed a bit for her to carry it and the right circumstances could pass it on. Follow the plague, find the thieves and stop the spread. Go to Comment

Protect the identities of the guilty!

"Hey young, we can't play this week." "OK."

--Missing a week of gaming allows a power play by Evil Duke X and an ally is assassinated--

"Welcome back all, here is what you missed last week."

I have never played in a game where events would continue without gaming. Of course there was a time shift when needed to move things along, but you comment brought out the thought. Is that how you would work it?

This is an adventure in itself.

Have any PCs ever came into the multiple levels alive and escaped or is that impossible?

Where do the Devourers go after their "death"?

Loved the story with this. Helped bring the entire area to life for me. Pretty cool ideas! Go to Comment

Hmmm. I loved it and laughed all the way through.

I took it tongue in cheek and accepted it for what it was and I left fully satisfied.

Fun set of adventures that are easy to mix and mash. Seems that the two kidnappings would be better served together and then blend in the bombs with those to twine them all together or you could play each one separate depending on time. Good options for the scenario, nice and compact and easy for an evening or couple days of fun. Go to Comment

Robber Squirrels
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)
Strolen's comment on 2014-01-05 09:31 AM
A couple squirrels have escaped their keeper and met some other feral squirrels in the nearby woods. Over time, the feral squirrels adapted their ways to the trained ones and now they rob haphazardly throughout the woods. From pick pocketing sleeping travelers to taking stuff off of resting carriages, nobody is safe.

Because they have no master to take it to, and after they kept the soft things for their lair, the rest is strewn randomly throughout the forest, dropped whenever they get tired of carrying it or when it falls out of their mouth/paws.

Many children (and even more adults) have gotten very lucky finding jewelry walking through the woods so it has become a popular past-time of the locals. Whenever they hear of a new robbery, most of the locals sneak out into the woods to do a walking search. Few, if any, would ever tell those that were robbed about the situation. Go to Comment

When you say "parasites" on a beast this large, there will be nothing small about them. You could have entire cities and countries of parasite humans amid its valleys and crevices and it wouldn't even notice.

And the fact that it is awake for 400 years? What kind of disaster would it leave in its path as it makes its travels? It would be a swath of complete and devastating destruction along its path. Damage that would not repair itself through natural weather for 100s of years. I am not sure why there wouldn't be writings on it all over the world. At 30 miles high and several hundred miles long, it would cut a path of death during its 400 years that would announce itself to almost every living creature. I am trying to comprehend a creature the size of the state of Maryland walking around for 400 years and it hurts my brain.

The intro is fabulous, but I am not sure the size matches with the rest of the submission. Go to Comment
Office of the High Councillor Corvin

Strolen's comment on 2013-12-26 04:06 PM
I see two good uses for this.

1) As a room in a dungeon crawl. It is great to have a well detailed room with descriptions of the contents and stuff. The detail would give the GM a chance to showcase the location and give the PCs something to do for a bit.

2) As a NPC this has a good baseline of who this person is and what his personality is associated with the room. Slap a submission up on Corvin and it will all come together I think. Go to Comment

I was ho-hum till the last paragraph myself. Good legends, nice thoughts, but the kicker that tied it altogether and caught me off guard was what it truly is. "until they are too wretched and tired and magic-deprived to do anything but watch"

Awesome! Go to Comment

The PCs have been traveling for a long time down the same stretch or round with no sign of anything suspicious. As they cross over to the next hill they see a gigantic splater of blood with a bleached dragons scull in the center of it. It the dragon skull's mouth is a tattered backpack with something wiggling inside of it.
