Hi, Brutus. Welcome to the citadel.

You've got a nice submission here. I like how you added in the part about a lack of prophecies. It keeps it nice and open-ended, which can be nice. Like Dozus has already said, though, it might be better with some sort of more specific plot, so players have something to build on.

I'd recommend splitting up the submission into paragraphs that all dwell on the same subject, like MoonHunter said. It makes submissions easier to read.

Also, I think the name "Azerath" might be very similar to one used in a video game (Warcraft III, or something). While it is perfectly exceptable to make derivative names out of place names in video games, it's sort of disliked here. It's not very creative, and it can get confusing and annoying if enough people do it. Personally, I suggest you make up a more unique name. Go to Comment

Just saying, having her have that needle that's automatically unfindable is a pretty bad idea. It's like playing favorites with imaginary characters. If you're running a game with other people and they find out that the needle is just always wherever they happened not to search, they won't be impressed. I think that you'd be better off saying that it's just very well hidden in her clothes, or just taking another step and making it a magical needle. Go to Comment

What they said.

("smaller chunks" with lots and lots of Maggotesque details in each!)


Interesting aside: I initially wanted to loathe the name "The Brave People", but it grew on me as I read the piece and I now find it perfect! Go to Comment

This is Grey on a remote terminal.
Just wanted to say that I quite like this, and although I may not be able to get QUITE as much cooperation out of my players, this definetly inspires me to try more. Go to Comment

Two of Pinker's research assistants are working on ways to make the effect switch off after three days of continuous use or project a warning to others that the ring bearer may be infectious. Go to Comment

While I do understand where you are coming from and I can appreciate your points, I must say that my DnD group is keeping the dream alive. Yes, we do have 1.5 players who think nothing of their characterization, but the other 3.5 of us nearly sacrifice making balanced characters in favor of making them more interesting and quirky (generally settling for underpowered). Anyway, I hope that other people see this and think more about concepts and think more about making a slightly retarded half-orc cleric dedicated to Pelor than a tricked out rogue made up purely of stats and skill points.

Ummm forgive me if I'm wrong but if the attempted kidnapping were a prank, isn't there a very realistic chance it could turn fatal, as the PCs proceed to kill the thugs with the intention of rescuing the girl? Isn't there a ridiculously high likely hood of that in fact? It seems like that sort of situation would be instantly suspicious, because given the propensity for Adventurers on the road to use "Crossbow Diplomacy" no one would pull such a high risk low reward prank.

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
