I like the writing style, but this is incomplete to me.. like an appetizer with no main course.
Cube is very cool, if that's what I am thinking about (minor spoiler) the main premise is that people are put inside of a room thats like a box and has doors on all 6 walls. There is a large array of these boxes all linked, and together they make a giant cube. It is like a Rubik's (sp?) cube, and like that item, it moves, so you can get chopped if you are between when it moves.. make every room have a little special something (some monsters, traps, a room where no magic, or an antigrav room, etc.) and you've got a nice little dungeon. And because it moves, going back through a door is not guaranteed to bring you where you started. Go to Comment
It's a good post, with some strong parts and some weak parts. THe obvious question is why the title? Any time people are left with that question, you know you should have answered the question. Other than that it's a normal and good post I would say. Go to Comment
There is some description of the history, but a richer description of its history and of the device would be nice. It's a pretty standard item, so you need to inject more creativity into ths post I think. Go to Comment
It's a simple idea, but I like it a lot. I wonder if your GM ever read the DarkSun Tribe Of One series ... the main character has multiple personalities that he is not initially aware of, but some of which take over when he is in stress, and then he can not remember what happens, etc. I liked it (but I'm easy to please with the fantasy books).

I like it and I like the two notes at the end. Maybe its not completely original, but honestly almost all the posts here are taken from/strongly inspired by something else... it's how we come up with ideas. Go to Comment
Once every decade on the eve of St. Poskov's Day during mid-winter, the coastal city of Tiyabon experiences a horrific event. Quool's Tide rolls in, depositing hundreds of bloated, fish-eaten corpses upon the pebbly shores of Tiyabon's wide bay. This singularity is to this day unexplained, though countless theories abound. It is said for example, that these corpses are not eaten by the myriad fish of the seas completely, due to the fear all creatures of the seas hold for Quool.
Named for Quool, a terrible, antediluvian god of seas and storms, who no longer exists for he has no worshipers, the Tide chokes the beaches and surf with the countless rotting bodies of those who had perished at sea in a violent way.
Almost immediately, the lifeless corpses are fed upon by crabs, gulls, and worse things that await the horrid feast. The townsfolk let nature take it course with disinterested disgust, though lately some enterprising adventurers have taken to searching along the beaches of flesh for former deceased companions, with intentions of raising them again!
Surprisingly no undead ever rise from among the many corpses. This is also a mystery.
