Lightning Steel & Sundries
Items  (Materials)   (Magical)
Strolen's comment on 2015-06-07 06:30 PM
I would say that they may attract lightning as a side effect of the power they hold. Even heat lightning would be drawn to it. During any normal rain, the odds of getting struck by lightning are greatly increased. If in a thunderstorm, you can pretty much guarantee they will get struck.

The affect would be much like a discharge when getting struck. The wielder is totally unaffected except for the flash but those around them could get hit by the random balls of lightning and have to deal with the concussion.
During a fight, this would be an awesome sight.

If you are trying to sneak up on somebody or are on the run, well, it is basically a beacon to where you are.

All said, during the raining season, you would be a very lonely traveler as I wouldn't go anywhere near you. Go to Comment

Cult of Done!

Glad you put it out in the wild. It does need some work but being about a devout of Mathom in a sub about Mathom, I don't think there is any other better offering than this. :)

I can hang with the rest, but that last sentence tugs at my curiosity. Go to Comment

I enjoyed reading these as well. Inns with personalities that can help any world grow. Often times, places like these turn into player comfort zones where they will continue to return too because they enjoyed the experience of it. Go to Comment

Well thought out idea I thought. I had a few questions that were quickly answered and it all came together for me. I had a distinct Twilight Zone voice over effect in my head during the first bit and the intro. That set the tone for the rest of the piece for me. Go to Comment

Since these are magic, I just figured that the coins would understand the intent of the gift or help. So if the coins are with a person, the coins will know when it is time to move on and urge the owner to pass them to another deserving of the luck...and an enhanced version of the luck at that. If a greedy many did something to further himself then I doubt the coins will urge the passing. Pretty self-regulating as far as I could tell. You get them in the wrong fashion...bam....cursed.

The dark version of Jim Carrey's The Mask? :)

A fine cursed item. I found I had to reread a few paragraphs to get the gist of it, which affected the understanding, but overall pretty clear. I also like that you put it in many genres and simple scenarios. Not everything has to be epic and this is a good reminder of the possibility of using it in many different ways.

I think this is brilliant!

When you said he loved the ladies I instantly thought, oh hum, another whoring sword. But then you dropped the bombshell it had to be wielded by a female. Awesome! Especially in the dynamics of the land, fantastic twist. And their egos are so weak they had to hide it and not use it. Love it!

Oh, and I want to hear the story about the rebellion of the wine-drinkers. That sounds hilarious, but probably isn't. Awesome name though!! Go to Comment

Wow. That was super fun to read. Did you make most of that up or is there lore associated with that character? Go to Comment
30 Judges

Strolen's comment on 2014-02-23 03:41 AM
Another great 30 Cheka. For all the times PCs get caught by the law, I could easily use these judge's personalities as the sheriff or Guild leader that gets crossed. Most any authority figure that has the power to pass sentence for a digression. Some fun judges with good twists. Get out your dice, lets see who the law is in this town. Bonus for wrapping in some other subs! Go to Comment

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
Items  (Tools)   (Magical)
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
