I guess I would want some idea of where this snake came from? It's power indicates definite divine intent but why? Go to Comment

Excellent sub - a ready to use mini-module in my opinion.

Two points:

1. Too much of the sub is stuck in bold.
2. King Gygax - this a deliberate reference to poor old Gary? :) Go to Comment

Ah, battered dice.

I had some D20s that were so battered, they were more marbles then anything else. The poor quality may have had something to do with that too. Go to Comment

Wow Wulfhere!

Do you do something related to this for a living? I have yet to see a sub from you which fails to deliver. Go to Comment

I would grant that - I've only been DMing since 1986 or so :), and much less frequently these years. Go to Comment

Good luck getting close enough to do so :). The winds are hurricane force and debris could smack you necromancer before getting close enough. The souls are also damaged and individually incoherent, the effects of the Soul Rending wands used against them. Go to Comment

It could be limited by powerful, probably artifical, weather conditions. The strength of this composite being is such that conditions which normally control hurricane movement (water temprature for one) do not have a great effect. It will not stray too far inland, but since so much of humanity generally lives on the sea, this still provides ample opportunity for destruction. Go to Comment

I did not mention sky ships - it was a pure blue-water battle.
and yes, the Aldruku ships are a minor variant on a longboat. They were a lower tech level then the Nyoran fleet - more tribal vs the greek/romanesque.

And to be honest, I had more fun writing the naval battle over the storm. Think I'll need to add toit sometime. Sigh. I keep saying that :)

This is interesting, though it falls into cliche with the powerful sword that feeds on souls, ground which has been gone over a few too many times.

The text is rich with unusual adjectives and adverbs - feckless, myopic, etc but needs work on general structure and spelling.

It shows potential. Since its been more then seven years since this was written, It would be awesome to see what you can do now.

Fortress Bricks

These small bricks appear as small stone blocks 8" inches long, 2" wide and 3" high.

Magical Properties

When a command is given (generally enscribed on the top of the block), it will increase in size up to 4' long, 1' wide and 18" high. If it encounters solid material (including flesh) while expanding, it will cease expanding in that direction. Where they touch stone, they will meld into it. The expansion is actually a restoration of their original size, and so cannot be reversed (except via the magical process that created the small verisons in the first place).

These bricks were originally intended for use to build field fortifications and bridges, as well as to repair stonework. They found that these stones were used for many other purposes, including:

1. Being dropped from castle walls (and flying mounts) onto enemies - the command to expand given prior to impact.

2. Walling in enemies (Ala. A Casque of Amontillado)

3. Booby trap contruction (much easier to create deadfall traps)

4. Capsizing ships (An infiltrator could bring a number onboard and unbalance the ship once expanded)

5. Choking large monsters (Thrown into the monsters mouth before activation. It will stop expanding when it hits the sides of the throat,but has a good chance of choking the affected monster. Go to Comment

Pike of the Hedgehog

The pike of the hedgehoge appears as long, bronze-tipped spear of ancient design. A short spike has been fitted to the butt end of the weapon and numerous bronze-inlaid runes run the length of the shaft.

Magical Properties

When base of the weapons is thrust into the ground, a ring of pikes (10' radius inside the pikes) will appear around the user. The pikes appear in 3 layers, similar to a phalanx, but are 360 degrees around the user.

The pikes extend 10' from the ground and so the total area forms a 40' diameter circle. It takes about 10 seconds for the phalanx to form.

If more then one such pike is used, the rings will merge, allowing a larger protected area. Each Pike provides about 60 linear feet of pikes.


The pikes will not thrust but will move to block any attempt to penetrate the ring. An attacker would need to destroy a large number of the pikes to be able to bypass them.

They provide no defence to the user against missle attacks, but could devastate a charging opponent. Go to Comment
