The Art of the Orcish War Drum
Systems  (Combat/ Warfare)   (General)
axlerowes's comment on 2009-03-24 06:15 PM
does it give bonuses to your Tauren troops as well?

well this has a little more video game style and wargame style than RPG style...but that is a matter of taste I supposes

I agree though this an extremely powerful item, it would need to be countered with an equally powerful item. Pretty soon your armies will just be throwing vases for the god like generals on either side.

Plot ideas:

The PC have to find a way to counter the war drum so the human lands will not fall

The PCs have to make there way through a valley filled with Orcish war drummer's in order to sue for peace.

The Gods have had it with those Orcs and their constant drumming. A holy war is declared to get those kids to shuddup. All drums in the land are destroyed save one, cursed by the dying shaman of the Gripfang clan to bring ruin to the humans and their gods.

The undead attack and the human, orcs and (night) elves need to unite to defeat them. Of course the wardrums are the only way it can be done, but they have been lost. The PCs must seek out first a callow Orcish slave boy with hella rythem and then take him to a special band camp in the waste lands. Go to Comment

The structure of this is fantastic and brief. As others have noted this is way out into the field of post-gaming fiction. It requires that the reader has a Castle Wolfensteinish or WoW like view of things like mummies, vampires and Liches since it does not attempt to define these creatures within its text. Very nicely done, I am glad this came up in the daily highlight. Go to Comment

one of the better 30s I have ever read, reminds me of that quote:
"the more personal, the more universal"

this is very personal for a 30, we get a line of dialog and physical description, this superior to just a list of archetypes. Go to Comment

A nice idea I like it, 

There was similar version of this in the following story.


This could use the 100 word treatment.  Because a lot of the information (NOT ALL) given is useless in terms of interacting with the item and the mini world developed for the item lacks personality or wit.

Looking over some of Cheka's older scrolls and BANG! a mystical yellowstone. Nice, an excellent place of PC or villains to plan a showdown, or I could also see these being used as a meeting place for spies or members of the underground. Putting this location into a game would go a long way towards setting the tones of utilitarin magic and government regulation. Nice and as far as I know original. Go to Comment

Better than a random encouter table, you could adapt to a sci-fi setting with ease or increase the scale.

I use to have an ascii game that allowed you to play out WWII naval engagements. Used the same letter code, I didn't have a manual. This would have been useful in that respect. Go to Comment

Well lets hope the super villians or worse the super heros don't start wearing these. Worst of all there could be a queen bee starfish that can use these starfish to enslave those wearing starfish into some hive mind collective. Go to Comment

Concise, clear and written in fashion that suggests more than it gives, such that for me at least , seeds a desire to explore the characters further through gaming. Nicely done.
They are a lot like dwarves. Maybe they are dwarves.... Go to Comment

First of all I have group called the Theosians in one of my campaign worlds. There home is Theosia not Theos. It wasn't very digital campaign so not a lot gets posted here but still I guess some words just sound the part.

Second, this is excellent, I love the story of the naturalist, the uneaten, everything

Hungry Siberian Hippos, fun and well fleshed out.....


for every extraplanar uber beast we should have ten of these quasi-mundane but developed creatures that suggests to the characters that the fantasy world is more than just string of encounters, singular forces (light, darkness, evil, nothingness etc) and quest items, but a deep and complex world.

"Tohm is merely a very smart bone construct with no apparent evil or malicious intent. "
Yay, what is so strange about that? He just a reannimated human corpse. Stop being so judgey!

I found this charming, I was little dissappointed we didn't get a story out of it or a little depth. But overall thought this was a solid and fun idea.
