This was a quick toss off, well written and cute, and I was drawn into the character immediately. But then he never showed up.

It is okay for a minor character,
but most GMs already have shatner in their pockets. A few magic items and a barebone catalog of military service are not very enlightening points nor are they great launch pads for in character roleplaying. Go to Comment

The best ideas would can offer a fellow roleplayer are the ideas that will be spring boards for ideas and concepts that will be fully realized by somewhere else and/or adapted to expand an exisiting work of fiction...such as the game world. Ma-O is a wonderful concept. Go to Comment
Powlgraff

I would enjoy this idea regardless, it is fun one, what I love here is the travel log approach to it.  Thus type of write up focuses on players interactions with the setting, and thus make the setting more accessable and something the player would like to visit.  



 



Plot Idea:  A young thief, brash creative and lucky he may be, but he is not smart, talented or careful. He has, amazingly stolen the hen that lays golden eggs from a Fae queen.  Born in Vandergraff he thought what better place to hide the bird than Powlgraff. "I'll just tie white string about one of her feet so she is easy to find."  Then he goes about his buissness bragging and longing for the agents of the mytiscal queen to catch him so he can say "I don't have your bird, search me you will see, where could I hide a bird like that."  Ah..the hubris of youth.  Of course the Fae aren't fooled, and golden eggs are being found around the city and all of sudden their is an explosinon of activity.   



Ossidra didn't like the boy, but his uncle's den of thieves did pay their protection money monthly, and he may some potential if he could hiest the Fae queen's palace.  She best get him back.



Tourists are flocking (heh) to Powlgraff for the golden egg search, and the Duchess in thrilled.  She wants that chicken.  



With a Fae bird in their midst the chickens of Powlgraff begin to commune with the great oversoul of poultry.  A bird hive mind is emerging, with the Fae chicken as it lynch pin. (there is reason you don't you breed these birds unless you  are a Fae Queen and know how to handle these things.  Think The Birds with Chickens.



Finally the agents of the Fae want this bird back, they want the boys soul and they want to make sure what the boy learned about Fae Queen's palace in forgotten.  The Boy saw something he didn't understand or recognize, but it could mean a great deal of trouble for the entire realm if that information gets out.  The boy has a bomb he thinks is a toy.

Great character, and I like that this great mage of morality and duty is both evil and cursed by magic. The drama of this guy's blind spot or hypocrisy (depending on your perspective) is great. Great character.

I would have preferred few a more personality details and the prose is little stunted and blunt in the first few paragraphs. It reads like list not a story: He did this, he did this, he did this. Go to Comment

I like this, a lot of the ideas can be used in part and the item has a nice surreal quality for games that lean that way. Go to Comment

I love this, as the Moon said, it got me to snicker and snort.  It has a sort of classic roleplay feel to it, back when we kids roleplayed bluffing fighters, burely dwarves, and irreverant gnomes, before the days of vampire enui, the emotionally fractured detective and other such darker themed characters.  And it isn't too long, too long is rambaling, the writing here stays on topic, it is all about Teldus and his antics. I so glad this came up on the daily highlight and i got to read it.

I really liked this one.



 



Have you, just for yourself as a GM, worked on the mind set of demon yet?
