Excellent Scras! This is a great origin for a great Dragon, and example of the potential Genesis of new pantheons of gods.

Oh, I like this one. It puts me in mind of Legend of Galactic heros with its germanic naming and grand scope.

This was a good movie. I saw it when it came out, so I have little specific recollection apart from liking it. Might have to give it another watch one of these days.

Twelve and Eight

Twelve and Eight tables are random tables that contain 19 entries from 2 to 20. You roll a result using an eight sided and and a 12 sided die and adding them up. The distribution looks as follows:

I first saw these type of tables in the old 1st edition AD&D Monster Manual II in its random encounter tables. The neat thing about these is you have weighted results so your common events are clustered between 9 and 13, and the further away the lower the probably, with the lowest probability in the 2 and 20 entries as roughly 1% each.

Specifically, the distributions look like this:

So, if you are looking for a very simple bell-curve in your tables, this will work nicely.

The Terra Gotcha

The Terra Gotcha golem appears as a fine Terracotta sculpture, usually of a warrior, but can take on any form.

The golem is fragile and although it can hit hard with its limbs or carried weapons, the true danger lies inside.

It is hollow, and if damaged it will shatter and release the golems contents.

Potential Contents:

Oil - By itself a slippery mess with the potential to ignite from lanterns, torches.

Phosphorous - Ignites into a massive ball of flame.

Gunpowder - Explodes if the golem is attacked by fire/electricity. Burns intensely if ignited after being released.

Acid - Area becomes flooded by a couple gallons of potent acid.

Poison Gas - Pick your poison.

Small undead - small creatures, undead bodyparts, etc.

Insect swarms

Even smaller golems

Note: The animating magic of the golem may serve to conceal magics and auras of things stored within.

Doppelganger Egg
Items  (Other)   (Magical)
valadaar's comment on 2017-03-01 02:08 PM

I'm leaning towards any significant contact. Its an alchemical object, not a spell, so it is not especially user-friendly. Use non-leather gloves (to avoid cloning a cow :) ) when handling it.

The Egg is the starting physical form of the clone that appears later, so while you could replace it with something else, the process as I see it here is a physical one. Also, the result of this item is not a Doppelganger as in a shape-changing creature, but a real copy of the subject. For example, the effect cannot be dispelled and would persist even if subjected to powerful anti-magic effects. The magic of the egg ends when the new creature hatches.

This is good, and a good example of these can be found in the excellent Ghost in the Shell anime series, specifically ARISE. They fit quite well here in Cosmic Era as well.

What it says on the box. A good listing of ranks.

Might want to link it to the Ranks codex.

valadaar's comment on 2017-02-24 10:18 AM
This is pretty cool, and made better since I love salmon. I wonder what animals would do with these memories? Maybe a bear might have unusually good info on where to find some food or gain a skill one would never expect of a bear...

Since killer whales eat salmon too, they might be smart enough to make use of memories gained in this manner..
