There is silliness, but it is alright; just the right side effect most magical items should have. Me likes! Go to Comment
Ring of the Pure
Items  (Jewelry)   (Cursed)
manfred's comment on 2008-12-28 04:03 AM
Nice and perfectly plausible indeed! I would imagine that a monk can put it down when in perfect harmony - either during meditation or after achieving the status of a true master. Sadly, most don't find out quickly enough. ;)


For a third, the ring could be mischievously placed on someone shortly before their wedding night... it could be a fine joke, or actually ruin the marriage. Go to Comment

Added to Generic Magical Items as well. Good reminder. Go to Comment
The Star Hammer

manfred's comment on 2008-12-25 03:13 PM
Where is that Siren guy when we need him? I like this delicious evil thinking on such a cosmic scale, but there are two questions that need answering:

- how much iron is needed again? I find it hard to believe, that a random asteroid out of its orbit couldn't deliver the same dose of iron or more. Suns should be dieing left and right. Or is it in the method of delivery, that it has to reach the core of a star?

- how long does it really take? I would rather imagine it works in geological timescales... giving the fuse a duration of millions of years. Go to Comment

Thanks to Siren and Kassil.

Now, of course throwing lots of iron may be more effective when applied on a planet. But there may be other reasons. Maybe the attackers wish to make a truly lasting impression, destroying a whole solar system instead of just a planet. Or the planet is too well protected, but its beleaguered inhabitants don't protect the sun. Even if whole planets are hurtled into the star, this is still a fairly crude method of attacking, so it could be used against a more advanced civilization by a primitive race that doesn't mind the expense. So it is usable. Go to Comment
How to Write Fictional Military Hardware
Articles  (Character)   (Gaming - Genre)
manfred's comment on 2008-12-25 02:31 PM
Not sure if I find use for it, but it seems like a pretty exhaustive checklist and a guidebook for writing up military hardware. It seems as well, that the recent technical submissions from Scras could serve as examples of following it. A list to remember. Go to Comment

The Circle of Pharisrak
Society/ Organizations  (Criminal/Espionage)   (Regional)
manfred's comment on 2009-01-13 06:08 PM
Now that is an interesting idea. Smashing old bones may not be enough, of course, but a proper ritual, burial or the like should do. Though Scrasamax' warning applies... Go to Comment
The Circle of Pharisrak
Society/ Organizations  (Criminal/Espionage)   (Regional)
manfred's comment on 2009-01-13 06:11 PM
The first thing I can think of, is they wouldn't reveal their identities, so it becomes the question of who would they take control of.

And they would probably pay, having just the right twisted honor (plus the PCs will make excellent suspects if anything comes out). Go to Comment
The Circle of Pharisrak

manfred's comment on 2008-12-25 02:52 PM
They are a fine exercise in misdirection, they don't let anyone know what they are in the first place. Surely ghosts don't behave in this way... except for those three. I got the picture of the PC's finally tracking down the killer's contact, only to find out it is some insane homeless person. There goes your detective work.

I wonder, are they gathering the wealth for some actual goals, or is it more symbolic, to prove they are on the top of this murderous game?


With them, there is nothing new in the world, just the old stuff applied in a novel way. Makes a good mystery. Go to Comment
Seaman's Fruit
Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Plains)
manfred's comment on 2008-12-25 02:36 PM
As has been noted, this is really a simple, regular, normal fruit. Not all fruit needs to be special.

Although Muro's addition is pretty cool, too! Go to Comment

Seconding Murometz, I would also end the story with the master learning something from the young monk. That would seem appropriate. :) Go to Comment
Purvis Swamp
Locations  (Area)   (Swamp)
manfred's comment on 2008-12-21 11:28 AM
Fully agreeing with Scrasamax here. You may also include some of the Sproggans' biological details in their sub.

You can never go wrong with a filthy swamp. :) Go to Comment
Sproggans
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Swamp)
manfred's comment on 2008-12-21 11:19 AM
With silliness, I can take them. It is a nice surprise effect, that would make you laugh the second time, but probably not the first. Very fitting for swamp-dwellers. Go to Comment

What a great thirty! I liked Breathing Wind and Qysa's Tomb, even the Hellburner was intriguing.

A good list we have been missing. Go to Comment

Not bad at all... a good characterization of the Shadow.

Short and shady. :) Go to Comment

Amecylia
Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Water)
manfred's comment on 2008-12-14 07:13 AM
Whoa... that was a surprise jolt to me as well! A simple effect with major consequences. I would imagine it could get quite rare, some foolish girls could be made to pay good money for any similar red flower.

Short and provocative. :) Go to Comment
