Thats a whole metaphysical debate Muro - are our souls impacted by our phyical brain structure? Or is a damaged brain a distorted lense for the soul? :) Go to Comment

Well, the real life savant which inspired me on this post does not forget music he has heard and can replay pretty much anything he has heard after the first occurance, so I did not see this as being too game specific.
One can forget specific details of spells and cause spell casting to fail so this can be applied to pretty much any system - for non-dnd it would mean his chance of succesfully casting a spell becomes higher.

I tried to avoid any specific game references and thought this was oblique enough not to set off alarms. Go to Comment

I like it! The dual nature is very interesting and Moon's suggestion on possible explanation is quite cool.

Nice job! Go to Comment

I love the picture this presents. How to get here? Magic of course. That's part of what magic is for - to let us play with reality and go places reality would deny.

A great bit part that can be pulled out to enliven a street scene, even if no plot is involved.

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.

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

The party wakes up in an inn around a table with wine goblets near at hand. They have forgotten all that happened the last day. As they seek to find the truth they come in contact with a man that gives them a job which pays quite nicely.
When they have finished with this rather dubious assignment they are invited to dinner by the the man...
