These are great, and I see no reason to limit them to being rewards for out-of-game activities.

A strange but interesting magical tree. Does it radiate heat as a result of its capturing magma?

No, he didn't - the material becomes internally very hot by absorbing heat from the surrounds - cooling them.

I like magical materials, but something seems off using them to create hot springs.

So access to the correct substances essentially disables its physics-bending features, turning it into simply really hot stone. This heat would transfer to the local liquid, heating it. This would continue until the stone was out of latent heat and matched the water's temperature. Unless the water was subsequently removed, it would not gain any additional heat and everything would return to normal until the water left in some manner.

Now, if the algae were killed when the water got too hot, and began to grow when it cooled off again, then I could see a sustained cycle occurring, keeping the water at the desired temperature for the algae.

This is great - the one-shot use means they must be carefully used, but that is not a detriment in my mind.

Nice visuals!

An excellent and very reusable location!

This would be a great place for a McGuffin to be found. Go to Comment

Agree with the comments. Token typo:

"Others would retrieve lost goods and others still would carry out political assignations on behalf of the people."

I assume you meant assassinations :)

Good sub. A nice example of a Kleptocracy.

30 reasons why magic is mostly used for good
Articles  (Humor/ Editorial)   (Gaming - In General)
valadaar's comment on 2013-10-09 08:22 AM
Interesting. This actually could be written as an article without the use of the 30 format.

That might have provided a stronger discussion, and there would be less pressure to fill in the full 30 with weaker entries.

That said, this is an excellent collection of impediments on black magic - nicely done.

A good explanation of the demons of your world, though the first section is a little rough and needs to be reread.

Some is a little confusing:

eg:

Likewise, though the daimons will usually be a minor threat as they can't rejuvenate themselves in their home, some were originally powerful enough to be a significant threat in their time spent as a daimon.

So, even though they cannot recover from injury while on Atheus, they start off powerful enough to remain formidable for quite some time?

A great workup, but he seems rather vulnerable to those that would simply blow him up.

In which case, his clues would go poof too, so there is that. Go to Comment

It would be interesting to see a king arise that held power not through his impotent army, and figurehead status, but through ties to the underworld. Blackmail, careful manoeuvring, intrigue. Keeping to the appearances of a lame duck, he would actually hold significant power. How the PC's play a role in this, perhaps they could give the impetus to change.

Its pretty good, though I would expect there to be more than one door between room 1 and the outside world, ideally with all access points provided with an airlock.

This submission is like the universe itself - pulling in bits and pieces everywhere into a cohesive whole.

These are great and form instant adventures for the game. Playing a mechwarrior/battletech campaign in this world would be wild fun.

Another great element for the Cosmic Era! I do like the old-school transformers a bit more then the current ones.

I really like the strong story-telling side to your submissions, and I like plant related submissions quite a bit. Good job on this one! Go to Comment

A great tale, either to use as actual history, or at least a local legend.

Well written and I see how it ties into the Order of the Ivory Tower.

Shardis, the Shining City

valadaar's comment on 2013-09-20 08:51 AM
The Eclipse certainly makes this submission - the city as it was was a nice high-magic city, but not overly remarkable. The transformation into the war zone gives it a desperate air and like Gossamer said, having the PCs there when all hell breaks loose would make the greatest impact.

Well done! This would make a very interesting mini-campaign. Go to Comment

Very, very good! Love the tale and the idea of a perpetual storm.



This appears like it would be compatible with the Shards of the Storm set of items, from the ancient days of Strolens.
