In this place, the natural currents and thermal convection of the water would become apparent. Go to Comment

As another wild option for a campain, how about one where the PCs are from a marine race and the entire campaign is set below the waves (for the most part)?

This opens the field up for more interesting denzens for under the sea, in the darks where no sun reaches. Go to Comment

Stone Flutes
One of the few remaining artifacts of the Alun people of note are the amazing Stone Flutes. These massive stone pillars (generally 6' in diameter and up to 30' tall) pierced with carefully carved holes. Running down the center of the stone (only visible from above the stone), is a long resonating chamber.

When wind blows across the top of the stone the right way, a low tone is created (similar to blowing across a bottle, but much lower in octave). Covering the various holes on the stone will cause slight variations in the tone - if enough are covered then the changes become perceptible enough to produce simple music. It would, however, require a large number of people, carefully coordinated, to 'play' this massive instrument.

Those samples which survive of these artifacts radiate a small degree of magic, though wether this is from their creation, or represent some means of improving their ability remains to be seen. What is known is that no attempt to replicate these structures has succeeded in producing the same quantity and quality of sound.

It is thought that these played an important part in the magical rituals performed by the Alun.

This was originally intended as a Stub for the Alun in The Scratching Stone, but it grew somewhat. Go to Comment

Updated: Removed many unnecessary newlines, a couple sections have been 'demoted' and moved into suitable sections.
Open for suggestions to improve readabilty, including breaking out sub-subs :) Go to Comment

This is due to them being, at least in Neyathis, a dead race.

The Stone Flutes idea preceeded the Alun and this sub by a great interval of time. It seemed appropriate to use with this stone-age people. Go to Comment

An interesting location and I'd love to see your ideas on why the site _is_ so evil. I know I can come up with my own 'origins', but I'd like to see yours :) Go to Comment

Interesting weapon - if it can be handled with one hand it sounds like it would be spectacular to see used paired.. Go to Comment

An interesting character, my only concern is that the only reason presented for his apparent unstoppability is his intelligence. I think he needs a few more clubs in the bag to be able to kill that many people with impunity. Did he get mystical training ala The Shadow? Sell his soul? Find a mystical book of encantations? :) Go to Comment

None of us are Steven King, at least as far as I know:)

The best response to critique is to learn fromit what you can, and if it makes sense, incorporate it into your work.

I like this sub and the idea of a good, sane man trapped in the undead form. Go to Comment

You know, things like this are ideal to bury your PC's who insist on reading any book they happen to chance upon.

An interesting history with lots of intrigue and rich background detail.

The idea of an order of knights which grows into something beyond the founder's intent is a good one. Go to Comment
