Can't stop myself!!

Leave me alone on my web tangent. I was hoping they were going to be the spiders that braided the beard. There is so much opportunity there. Lots of dwarves braid their beard. Having these spiders make "webs" out of their beard could be such and awesome thing to use!

  1. Beard braid/web contests.
  2. Stature could be based on the intricacies of the beard.
  3. Certain patterns could even determine their rank, job or position in the church.
  4. Dwarves with the best patter could sell their Beard Spiders for a high premium. However, each one sold would change the overall braid/web.
  5. Malicious spiders (or a bad batch) could cause all kinds of mayhem. Tie knots, tie beard to bed posts at night. Grapple onto any grass or strings or anything that gets into the beard and just be a general pain in the ass.
  6. Spilled ale into the beard would intoxicate the spiders. Some would improve, some would cause mayhem. Either way, they would have issues with the ale somehow.
  7. Embarrassing is the dwarf who can't control his beard spiders and they go up into his hair.
  8. Even worse is when his Dwarven lover has the same braids in her beard
  9. Maybe that isn't bad, maybe that is a sign of relationship, the same web/braids
  10. Hey, that Elf has the same Braids as Dunder the ThunderHammer. What in Hurl's Hammer!?
  11. Hey, that sheep has the same...

Technically it is the "L" and it is elevated...more or less. But it goes under occasionally, if only into darkness in many cases. I grew up there and memory is fog as you take some things for granted. Go to Comment

Man, that was really cool. The backstory went against my thinking too but I think it is all the better for it. Just shows what you can turn a simple idea into. A knife that makes zombies. And look at the level you brought it too. Sweet! Go to Comment

I like the church war plot aspect of it. Having a demi-god, of that sort, actively going against his Aunt's church makes for great indirect conflict in the world! PCs would be affected by odd parts of this war and may, in scenarios, even get involved. Decent history and reason for coming into being as well. I find this very usable. Go to Comment

Normally I try and leave comments about spelling and structure alone but this is a rough draft. An excellent rough draft, but in dire need of another read through. I see the voice you are trying to get out and I love it, however if you read it out loud you will find many errors that make it difficult for me to get through.

I think you can up this .5 to a point with a quick rewrite to make things more clear! Go to Comment

Took me a second to get the hang of it but your description explained it very well. Will have to put this together with my eldest and see how it turns out!

Excellent background on the game as well. Felt it was perfect and gave a lot of personality to it. Great sub! Go to Comment

I would call this more of a "General Submission template". We would do well if we all followed them to a point...or at least asked all those questions.

Sweet.

Once destroyed would be a royal pain. I like the idea that gargoyles in this world could be those in that trapped situation. Magic is able to allow them to take other sigiled statues forms but they would remain stone. Once destroyed they could continue to inhabit others. Slim to nil ability to communicate or write because of the difficulty of using the other statues. Perhaps they can even be summoned into the new styled gargoyles by wizards. Perhaps an incentive for a wizard to trap somebody in there too.

Is each styled rune a different "room" then? That is how I envisioned it. Go to Comment
