Not overly drawn out. They are solid one dimensonal villians that a group of heroic PCs could really sink their teeth into. Go to Comment

Is the animal intelligent?

But I like the idea as whole, these animals could also be a form pest. Imagine your PCs are giving an ogre chase through the forest and accidently startle a heard of Enori.

This could also be a great tool for a DM desperate to keep their PCs from doing something stupid. Go to Comment

I agree with Muro for the most part. Overall there is rapid fire laundry list of places but I enjoyed that you didn't present them as a list-lists are the the citadel's greatest vice-and stuck to single narrative flow. You have a created vibrant and energetic setting. Thanks Go to Comment

Updated: Updated: People mentioned some changes that should be made. As for the term generic, I meant it was associated with no specific world. But I will never try and get into symantics agruement on a message board. So I changed the title.
As for this Eliminster clown, when did he enter print. Go to Comment

As a whole do you feel the depth of the Forgotten Realms world has been good for gaming? Not the business, but the way hobbyists approach and play the game. Go to Comment

Excellent comment.
You know have every philosophy has to have core conceits on which to ground the philosophers logic. I was trying to set up the core conceits of the game world This was written with a in game perspective so I didn't step back to explain my goals here and maybe I should have. The fate of the Watcher and the Being is a message that the state of being worshipped, which creates a hierarchy, no matter whether the God is Good or Bad, is a negative and destructive state.

The Watcher represents the first step in the Being's self awareness. Thus creation in this set up is about consciousness. (The whole world could be some brain in a jar in somewhere as far as the logic is concerned.) The first step of self awareness herein is child like, it is self love. (love is tricky word to use here because I trying to distinguish between different types of positive directed emotions throughout this piece: adoration, passion, love and so on. But indulge me with the broadest meaning of the word love here. ) The Watcher arises out the intellectual step towards self love but as the intellect matures it begins to expose the flaws in the Being. Because the Being is no longer everything with self awareness comes knowledge of limits. The chief flaw of this early Intellect is doubt as to whether the Intellect can know itself. Secondly, a chief conceit in the game world is that allowing yourself to worshipped is a flaw. Change the word Watcher to Worshipper and you now have a parable against the self satisfied state of being worshipped. The next step is when the Being then moves on to start interacting with and wrestling with the intellect. This appreciation for intellect (represented by the Watcher) gives rise to the first wave of creation. You could also progression of the Being, as being a mind gaining an Ego that then gains a Super Ego.

Creation herein is all driven by outward intellectual and emotional expression. This differs from the self propagation of biological life which is a self serving and imperative that doesn't occur in this system until the Yaw'naw character shows up. Go to Comment

One-bad mother:

She has never had much ambition. Oh she has dreamed of things and imagintined things; her oldest daughter marvels at how creative her mother is, but she never really sought to better her station. As a young woman she realizes in retrospect that she was waiting for a caretaker. She was never a beauty, but she had a honest face with eyes as warm and round as her face and a smile so sweetly shy that men soon found comfort in her. They just never found a wife in here though. So by the age of 34 had given birth to eight bastards. By 35 was mother to five and gravetender to three. The broken promises of minstrel boys, the loss of her youth and the tragic loss of her babies to plague and hunger left no room in her heart for anything but her children.

She found she could make a living as a mother; at a brothel. The whores had their own bastard and many of the girls were little more than children themselves who didn't know what tits were for. When one day a john refused to pay up and slapped on of the girls around, she found it soe easy to slit his throat. The family ate well that week. Over time she found she had a skill with poisons, blades and traps, and nobody saw this broken down middleaged mother as a threat. Now her sons go to school. Her daughters have promising marriages in their futures and for a few days of work a month.

As a killer she is cold and meticilous. Often planning her day around as
9am take boys to church for leason.
10am drop off Kara's lute at the repair shop
10:30am pick up Lucina's shoes at the cobblers
11am pick up hand crossbow at "one eyed petes"
12noon "meet" duchess at rose festival
12:30 take boys their lunch. Go to Comment
