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.
A nice enough straight forward plot, nothing really wrong with it, but nothing to really draw you in. A reasonable honest group of PCs could get through this whole adventure with two roll playing encounters and a spot/search check. Getting the item out could prove a challenge, but an experinced group of gamers should move straight through that.
Disclaimer: I strongly dislike the proclivity in media to portray developmentally dissabled people or autistic individuals as child-like. Developmentally disable people often do present many traits that appear child-like; a dependence on routine, an enthusiasm for what we might consider unsophisticated pleasures such as simple Christmas or Easter games or self-centered behavior, but it unfair to call them six year olds. I think it is more nuanced than that and I think those nuances are important. To ignore them is to be disrespectful.
That said, solid NPC, represents the danger of munchkin characters no? I also liked the story of the demon entering the mind and not finding a route for corruption, really good that part. I think this mage school you are describing here could be something excellent.Go to Comment
