It all depends on when they meet her. It is only when she becomes bored with one method that she moves to another, like her garden. If early on, she is still using traditional methods. It isn't until she is older that she tries experimental things, like mixing hope into the screams by setting up SAW like scenarios where prisoners think they can earn their freedom.
What I mean to say by this is that she really does not have a signature torture method, or wouldn't really. Go to Comment
>The one thing I'm not sure of is how she manages to get away with so much. With all the witnesses to her arena, including the ones who decided never to come back, her level of cruelty must at least be whispered about.
Except for the two occasions mentioned, she comes across only as an old woman who enjoys entertaining. In her setting, gladiatorial matches are not that uncommon, and hers are a unique pleasure.
In hindsight, I suppose this is a rather large jump to assume, because it does not take place in Ancient Rome. That said, many fantasy setting have gladiators.
As for prisoners: not many people are going to follow up on those. Maybe the family would ask, but I don't think it was too uncommon for prisoners to die.
Tl;dr: Most don't really see the cruelty, and PC's would have to do quite a bit of digging to find out about anything weird. Go to Comment
5/5, but I am slightly curious about the frozen prison. Barring the mortality rate, it will be as if they never went to prison. The prisoners would not be able to tell the difference between 5 minutes and 500 years, and in fact may prefer to be frozen as long as possible to see better technology.
A possibility is that there is a traditional prison, and when they fill up they create a "queue" of frozen inmates waiting for an opening, so they still have to serve there 20 years and may also have to have 100 years pass before they do it. Go to Comment
Gave it 3.5/5, because it is a "Good Solid idea" with a little extra added. I liked it. Knowing very little about guns, it all seems to make sense to me and I can't think of any way to make it better. Go to Comment
well, it could be abused, but only if the PC's figure out that it works for weapons, too. And only if they fight their way past the giant Pillsbury Doughboys every time they want to harden a sword. Go to Comment
1) The Angry Dragon This Dragon does not care about hoarding treasure, but only wants to kill stuff. Revenge or bad temper?
2) Golden Dragon A gold mine was attacked by a group of bandits. In order to protect the mine, the mage constructed a dragon out of the only substance handy: Gold. After taking care of the bandits, the dragon now walks around the countryside doing clost to nothing, due to the fact that it is to heavy to fly and does not feel mortal urges. It is now the prize of adventurers due to its value.
3) Volcano Dragon Most dragons are fire resistant, but this one takes it to the extreme. The volcano dragon lives inside an open peak volcano. Go to Comment
Altair is the main Character from Assassin's Creed, a game for the PS3 and Xbox360.
The Whole intent is for someone who wants some basis in history for an assassin group. They have some strange points, such as not running and killing themselves. This is to show their devotion to their leader, which could make them difficult to deal with.
The game section is semi-pointless. It is mainly interesting tidbits for people who played the game to see how much the designers put into the game to make it historically accurate. It does not really have any use in an RPG, no Go to Comment
