I had a campaign this would have been great for back in 2006-2007. I really like this, and I enjoyed the writing and tone. Go to Comment

Is there a very developed and sophisticated sub genre of gaming that gave birth to this.  Why does it also feel kind of creepy.

Anyway always nice to read something both accessable and really really different.

This gets no love.  I think we could rework this so that it could be more useful.  Often times the gaming worlds we have are teaming with spirits.  Very often the PCs have the ability to contact these spirits to gain information about a person, an item or perhaps just ask for directions.  If you have this ability in the game you may never know for sure when the PCs are going to use it. An easy  go to list of death stories may be handy to have around when you have to come up with a ghost on the spot. When you conjure a spirit you conjure both a life and a death. You also conjure up the past and get in touch with a lost time.  The story of that person's death should be short but it should hint at a large amount of information and at a larger world.  Each of these lines in this 30 hint at a story.  I think there is use to this list of demises. I have five suggestions for what might be on that list. Check the forum.

The humor punches this one up a few notches from what otherwise be a simple straight for 1st ed magic weapon.  But hey Corran may have been a man of his time.

Again the *concrete* argument for good content. Gaming is a cross genre medium, anything you could do in a horror movie or nightmare you could do in a game. So the poem has a much to do with gaming as anything that is not explicitly written for GMs or players. That said it is not an inspiring poem. Go to Comment

5. Material Component: Many spell require a few mundane items to complete the ritual. A wizards staff, made from properly selected wood, carefully rendered and personalized can allow the wizard to cast his or spells without these items. Go to Comment

I can buy it, could use a little more finesse in the delivery, but a nice idea. I am a sucker for hive minds. Though we learn painfully little about their back story or personality. If it is indeed intelligent, we are not sure about its intelligence either, than it may have personality worth discussing. Go to Comment

Bridgeton Asylum

First, I just want to share one little journey I went on with this story. I first thought it was silly that the reporter was carrying a pistol in a shoulder harness and I thought it unreasonable that she was then shocked at Luther's shotgun. Then later when she shot Luther in the leg by accident, I realized that the character having a gun was silly and stupid. The catch was she didn't realize it. I always enjoy it when a story engages me like that. Thanks.

It is was interesting choice to write it as a series of really short paragraphs. That probably helps internet readers and young readers who tend to skim things. Some physical descriptions of Luther and Rachel would have helped me get into the story, but I also understand the choice of keeping the character's somewhat blank so the reader can more easily relate to them.

The only thing that holds me back on this is that you didn't finish it.

Also is it Bridgeton or Bridgewater? Because at one point Rachel mentions Bridgewater and we can't be sure if she is talking about the asylum directly or some larger organization like say the county or city government. Go to Comment

The pulling of the 1 of 20 to 200 (depending on the campaign)  arrows from a 30 sp quiver smoothly and without error has always bothered me.   PCs would have to spend hours carefully loading their arrows.  I like anything that makes the game easier  for everyone without sacrificing depth or detail.

When you ask somebody what there favorite sub is and they point you here...well you really know what page you are on after that.

Games need gags like this, gags that can be both useful and horrible. A nice item, I can think of half a dozen players who would love to have this item. I am sorry I didn't see it years ago. Go to Comment
