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

I loved the intro story but then the actual person kinda fell flat for me. He is insanely difficult to use and the plot suggestions are very specific and require a lot of set-up. I like the mood it sets up A LOT and would enjoy it much more as fiction in its current state and would love to read a bit more about the crimes. Go to Comment

Strolen's comment on 2012-09-03 04:28 AM
Good solid start to a magic system. Would be even more awesome if you had a graphic with the different symbols on it to use as reference. But a somewhat normal rune system.

Where does the magic for the runes come from would be good to see. And can anybody draw the runes once they know them? This isn't that complex so not hard to memorize. What keeps others from using it, what needs to be done to complete the rune to make it active...stuff like that.

Excellent start though! Go to Comment

This was one of those ideas I wanted to write to get it out of my head but wasn't enthralled enough with it to give it the full treatment. I made a conscience decision to stop worrying about things and just do it! I will start posting more and not worry about being Scras. ;) Go to Comment

Those are outstanding questions that I have no intention of answering. ;)

1) No magic inherent in the bush. Given to it by those that use it.

2) You have to touch the bush and only the bush. Roots are useless as they are only small branches whereas the bush is the central nervous system so to speak.

3) There are empty spots between the bushes. (good plot point I didn't think of earlier) Those that understand the bushes and know the pattern of the roots in that area can use the dead zone between the bush's roots to move unnoticed. Not sure that you couldn't replant. Didn't think of that part, interesting.

It maintains a distance just cause. I was of the thinking that the roots are so invasive that there wouldn't be room for another to overlap so they avoid each other after a root probe identifies another plant. They would react somehow with each other and just naturally not grow any more in that direction. Go to Comment

I do love this idea. Great set of arrows to start and somebody who uses this idea in a game, the options are just endless. Go to Comment

Psst. Turn it into a wiki and donate it to the Horde. :)

Plus I need some subs to test that format to see if works. Go to Comment

Tower of Forbidden Cats. LOL

"All of our agent-retrievers can perform all of these stroke-passwords in merely twenty minutes of petting a cat, in order to determine if it is indeed a normal cat or a powerful tome of destruction."

Is it a cat or a powerful tome of destructions. Here kitty kitty kitty. HA!

This was a great post and had me smiling all the way through it. Outstanding idea!! Go to Comment

Creepy with an outstanding background on the change. Really liked the ability to adjust her poison. Makes so much sense. Plot hooks are fun as well. Go to Comment

This is great. They will approach them and roll around the feet like a cat looking for a scratch is a fantastic visual. I loved this idea and think it would be great fun to use! Go to Comment

My emotions are confused by this post. I find the background and reasoning gruesome and I am undecided if I think that this was a proper punishment for him or enough for the families. Maybe that is much of the point. Whacked is a good word I think. Go to Comment

Good apocalyptic cycle for a world to have to go through. One of those ticking timers you can put on a campaign or story that forces action before the coming of The Plague.

Like it for that aspect especially! Go to Comment

These little beetles have heads at both ends of their bodies. This allows them to feed on leaves at twice the rate of their normal cousins, causing great damage to crops. They look like ladybugs more than actual beetles, but have no wings. They have a funny way of moving if one stops to watch them, as both heads seem to vie for picking the direction at any given time. Their favorite nourishment is sugar cane. After feasting on these for some time, they develop short bursts of frenetic energy, and can be seen racing back and forth without purpose, which looks quite comical to onlookers. They are otherwise normal bugs. Of course the pc's might not know that.
