Creepers Tavern
Plots  (Mystical)   (Side-Quest)

(Psst, it's gambling, not gamboling.)

Quite a fun romp here, including the catch once they "lay the spirit to rest".

Come to think of it, the heroes may want to do exactly that if it isn't dealt with the first time. And to feed it a living victim may be also problematic (even if it's a powerful shady character - well, especially if it's a powerful shady character).

There is dubious fun, shady dealings and a lot of fighting - unless you know how to avoid it. It's pretty okay. Go to Comment

If that is the contemporary term, then I must apologize, thought it was a typo. Okay, another old word to learn. :) Go to Comment

With that add-on about magic items, it is certainly a potent, but very usable piece. Good work. Go to Comment
Zhiatve's Chains
Items  (Jewelry)   (Cursed)
manfred's comment on 2009-07-01 01:07 PM
Mmm, an amusing punishment and discomforting to boot! Think twice, if you carry those and run into an enemy... they'll have a much easier time finishing you off. Thinking a bit more modern, some might attempt to enter a state of clinical death and have their chains removed in that way. Too bad the reviving is never as easy as it seems.

One word of caution though: not all criminals will last through this punishment in good mental health. Some will surely go crazy. Others will become unbalanced... and when they finally come free, will spiral out of control in attempt to enjoy their newfound youth. The wise captain of the guard will keep an eye out on the newly released charges. Just in case. Go to Comment

Some of them are a bit too high fantasy for me, but it is a great list, plus I like doggies!

Watch out for those retrievers. Go to Comment

This would be the perfect item to let your magician use, with the player of course neglecting to read all on its background. Next time he boasts about being the good guy, let someone point out the source. Fun item. Go to Comment

Percentages!

Gotta love books in any form - and this is a collection most fine. (And please add the 'Healing' freetext, it does apply here... for most of them.) Go to Comment

Maybe you should add a few decent businesses, to even out these 'hallmarks' - otherwise there is not much to do, except torching the whole area. :)

But this dark corner has something likeable... some of the locals may not be more than suspicious, while others are out in the open, tolerated to different degrees. I'd also wager the disease priests are the only ones to smile regularly at their customers. Go to Comment

Besides women in black, I like the general concept, too. It is a good place with a few surprises. What do these women fight for? Go to Comment

'Hornless Goat', what a sweet name for a human sacrifice. Nice club you've got here. :)

But that is also the part that surprised me - I was under the impression the Knitting Circle is a far more benign group. If they are sacrificing people on a regular basis, it becomes really hard to find the 'difference between good magic and evil magic'.


Good location though. Go to Comment

Yes; but are these particular magi the good guys (okay gals), or the bad ones? Go to Comment

Nice one! Deserves the Spirit freetext.

(Note: parts of the sentence "though the only spirits who posses them have been through many harrowing scenarios" should be probably turned around.)

It is written, how they answer on a certain question... do they actually manifest in some way? Or do they merely control the figurehead of the ship? Both options could be fun (the spirit actually moving on the ship as an unremarkable sailor no one can rightly remember; vs. the captain always having to climb to the figurehead to get a conversation and be laughed at by sailors).

Also, how do the spirits behave towards those, that are negligent to the ship or even endangering it? Would it act directly against a sailor that wants to torch it, for example? Things can get nasty on a living ship. Go to Comment

Updated: Out with ya! This was inspired by, of all things, "The Mummy". I watched it for like five minutes and wondered, how on earth would a small secretive society survive for three thousand years with its agenda intact, when there is no pressure to follow their goal (and the world doesn't stop turning either).

This spirit is an answer to this question - if you need it. Go to Comment

Thanks. Of course, it doesn't have to be an enemy - it may be your friendly supernatural sponsor you won't be aware of until it turns your life on its head. :) Go to Comment
