The Tone Deaf Sword
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Wulfhere's comment on 2007-07-03 02:30 PM
It does need a name, though. A mighty blade like that one, ancient and filled with ominous power, deserves something like "Earbleeder" (Especially if it's a soprano) or "Noterender". Go to Comment

It may have been intended to sound marvelous, but then the bladesmith took an inch off the final length ("Too tip heavy!" said the soot-covered dwarf.) and altered it from the measure that would have made it resonate beautifully...

Rival schools of wizardry could each blame the others for production of this substandard enchanted item...

"Only one of those fools from the Forcimantic Brethren would be so clumsy!"

"Says you! It's clearly the work of the Radiant Coven of Jessmarch!"

I added it to the Tales of the Road codex, where it fits perfectly. Go to Comment

A decent post, but more could be done with the idea.

What keeps someone else from learning the command word and summoning the keys? Do they need to be kept for a certain length of time (to "attune" to the owner, perhaps) before they will work? Go to Comment

"+2 Holy, Silver Boot to the Head!"

One of those ideas that's just soooo WRONG!

I like it! Go to Comment

Like there were errors!

Magnetic Bolas
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Combat)
Wulfhere's comment on 2007-07-01 04:14 PM
In order to make something like this work, perhaps only one of the bolas' weights would be magnetic, with the other ends made of a non-magnetic material like bronze. The bola would tend to tangle when it hit, so the target would still end up with a clumsy, tangled mess clinging to his blade or armor. Go to Comment

Wulfhere's comment on 2007-07-01 11:59 AM
While this has some promise, it isn't on the same level as other submissions we have seen from the wildly creative mind of Pieh. It could use fleshing out to expand on its unusual power of granting improved night vision. Go to Comment

Wulfhere's comment on 2007-07-01 11:54 AM
Keebler Elves need not apply! We seem to have a pretty grim take on elves lately.

I really like this court full of scheming fae and their supernatural allies: It has an interesting Marion Zimmer Bradley vibe to it. It may not be 100% complete, but there are plenty of usable hooks and potential surprises for any band of adventurers that falls into the clutches of the fae. Go to Comment

The Rephatians are coming together well as a detailed enemy. Their legions of hideously altered warriors and engineered warbeasts could make for interesting and creepy encounters. Go to Comment
Saristreea Grenade
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Villanous)
Wulfhere's comment on 2007-06-27 12:24 PM
Perhaps not the most effective weapon of war, but certainly an interesting device to encounter! I could see such casques being used to clear enemy defenders from part of a city's parapets prior to an attack by war automata, undead, or other attackers that won't be hindered by the gas.

Such a weapon might also be carried by the handful of dark priests and magi able to force the undead to their will. Alternatively, bound undead could use such a weapon themselves, magnifying their destructive power by giving them a horde of lesser undead to command. Go to Comment
Ambassador Ku'ar'Riss
NPCs  (Major)   (Political)
Wulfhere's comment on 2007-06-27 07:26 PM
An interesting and predatory female! Your sub paints a vivid picture.

I imagine her becoming quite a celebrity and developing a coterie of followers, dedicated fans impressed by this flamboyant female alien and her charismatic sociopathy. She'd get lots of coverage in the media, with talking heads criticising her or defending her against "humanocentric" judgment. Go to Comment
The Horned Lord
NPCs  (Mythic/ Historical)   (Political)
Wulfhere's comment on 2009-01-18 02:38 PM
Thank you for the well-considered critique!

I meant for the Horned Lord's reaction to the Dark Lady to contradict his usual cold demeanor: Only she had the seductive power to shatter his reserve. The Lady's manipulations left him even more emotionally guarded than before.

Despite her resistance to the Horned Lord's control, she was not impervious to all he could bring to bear. Knowing the Horned Lord would eventually find a way to avenge himself, she fled. Had he been a lesser being, she would have remained to taunt him as you suggested. Go to Comment

A well thought-out character, with interesting details.

Rilei'Liin
NPCs  (Major)   (Mystical)
Wulfhere's comment on 2007-06-25 02:41 PM
I like the concept of the elven mage who failed to understand her limitations and was transformed into a vortex of destruction, but I was less enthralled by her personality: I imagine that she might find a conscience, even as the pain reduces her to a level of basic survival.

I suspect that most player characters finding her would try to destroy her as soon as they understood what she really was. She might be a hard one to kill, though, as a sort of "magic elemental". Go to Comment

Mortemayne has been fixed, now all that remains to be completed are the subs for the Horned Lord, the Gardein Hwit, and poor Sir Palomar. Go to Comment

I had this one almost done a few months ago, but I decided to put it on the back burner when Valadaar's Unseen Fortress appeared.

Given their similar subject matter, one could easily use ideas from one to supplement the other. Go to Comment
Sandals of the Eagle Legion
Items  (Clothes)   (Magical)
Wulfhere's comment on 2007-06-20 06:01 PM
By rights, I should have made them the "Mallard Legion" or the "Swan Legion", some sort of waterfowl, but that just didn't work for me...

"Why do these sandals have a picture of a duck on them?" Go to Comment
