My players immediately acted like a cat in a bag and focused almost purely on escaping rather than researching anything in the Library. Go to Comment

Players take cues from the GM about what is important. The GM is the only true source of information players have, and it is painfully easy for players to latch onto unimportant details.

I see it as a question of consistency. What are the consequences for killing a man? Is there a difference between murdering a random serf and a noble?

Beyond that, Players will follow the GM's lead over what details are important or not. The work to make the consistency work has to be made, but random mooks can be made to be more than cannon fodder or cardboard cutouts. Go to Comment

I'm finding it hard to keep up posts with the pace of the campaign- we play twice a week most weeks. But since I've heard from various people, I'll attempt to keep up best as I'm able. Go to Comment

I think you'll find that Strolenites are suckers for long boring backstories embellished with all sorts of details and quibbles about where various people, places and things come from.

They like meat on them bones.

I am voting on this, and voting honestly. Polish this submission a little, give it some meat and I'll gladly revise my vote to a higher one. Go to Comment

Hmm. There's a fair chance such a place might get placed somewhere in Machias- probably in the Slants. Go to Comment
The Wraith: Duke Levi Bosner
NPCs  (Character Sheet)   (Criminal/Espionage)
Ted's comment on 2013-03-03 01:25 PM
The Wraith is a creation of his mind, as well as the title used by others (both in the know and in rumors) to talk about his actions.

Levi truly was an empty and devoid person, even before the brainwashing. Without it, his first action would likely be to ruthlessly try and kill the Locust for using him.

Levi has a very penetrating view of human emotion- it is critical to how well he can manipulate others- a view that does nothing to persuade him that humanity is worthwhile. His own feelings, urges and goals are more important than the feelings of anyone else. Understanding others is a means to control and manipulate others, nothing more.

I may create such a servant at a later time. This is an aspect of the character I probably really should address. Go to Comment

Wow. For a first submission this is impressive. It is well conceived, the idea has that spark of originality that makes it shine, and it is very clear that you've put a great deal of thought into this submission.

If I were to include this into my campaign (Disclaimer: I run GURPS), I would likely emulate his abilities using a different system, but I find the explanation of charges and how they affect his abilities useful for creating him within the system, if I were inclined.

I'm also interested in more non-antagonistic uses for this character, as well of the possibility of other elementally-aligned entities who function along similar lines. Go to Comment

Session 16 was an extremely short session that got aborted early due to some player difficulties outside of the game. Very little of note got accomplished.

Session 18 happened tonight. I'll probably have the summary out sometime over the week-end. Go to Comment

I'm starting to find that carefully going through with the HTML editor can do a lot more than the WYSIWYG editor- because the later will often butcher things as you get further along and render incorrectly once all is said and done. Go to Comment

Visions of Secret Plants Dance in Your Head

       By: rickster

You receive a vision of a rooftop "somewhere close by", where a rare moss grows; in the vision, you know the moss is suitable for greatly enhancing the effects of certain types of potions. Now go and find that rooftop. Don't fall off. (Of course, rooftop runners *will* be taken for miscreants by the local City Watch....)
