The Potion of Explosive Entrails
Items  (Potion)   (Cursed)

This is perfectly gobliniod in its nature - using one of the few advantages that race has.

I see no need to into its details or how it works - its a potion in a fantasy realm. Where you trying to shoehorn it into modern or sci-fie, then you need to start wiggling.

Good job!

A reasonable item if sparse. Muro's and Moons detailed comments are good.

I enjoyed this sub. It would be an interesting challenge on how to honestly work this into an adventure. Go to Comment

A most excellent companion to the Mines. I like this magic theory and it aligns with some of my thoughts on the matter.

Perhaps they could acquire a personality drawn from the 'voices' of the books authors. If one arose from a specific persons' works, they might have a personality similar to that author and gain more then primal motivations.

I like this creature. Go to Comment

valadaar's comment on 2013-04-30 09:27 PM
This is a really novel critter. An unusual lifecycle to say the least :)


I don't agree with Moon on their size. I do not see any need to rationalize giant insects in a fantasy post however. Go to Comment
Bone Bow

valadaar's comment on 2006-10-18 01:37 PM
Not bad, if a little inconsistent (The bard who made the item is forgotten, but two of his party members are known.)

As said by others (and from my own experinces), delete the stats completely and just leave the verbal descriptions of it's effects. Go to Comment

I like the idea of the trollgut belt, perhaps as an orcish invention. Go to Comment

This is interesting - however I would assume the parasite rifle was really only useful for light or non armored opponents.

Trenchville
Locations  (City)   (Plains)
valadaar's comment on 2006-10-11 09:34 AM
I agree with moonhunter on what brings about trenches.

Now, what could bring them about would be some type of magical constructs which were analogs to Artilley/Machineguns, such as Lightning Spires (Similar to what existed in Red Alert). In this case, we are creating a situation where defence is more powerful then offense, and so stalemate ensues.

A nation with powerful magic users created a network of lightning shooting spires on their border with another kingdom. Since any who tried crossing over land to attack were fried, their enemies built trenches to get closer to the towers, with the intent to eventually tunnel underneath them to collapse the towers and create a breach. Perhaps both nations constructed similar spires and created a no-mans land between. The spires would of course be built far enough apart not to be able to strike each other (otherwise it would be rather difficult to build them.)

The spires would have to outrange all other forms of magical attack for this to work, and would be a very high magic world.

This status quo would exist until spires are destroyed (subterfuge, etc), or a mobile, lightning resistent attack form is developed (ceramic golems, anyone? :) ) Go to Comment
Welcoming Spirits

valadaar's comment on 2010-04-29 08:37 AM
I never seen this one before - it most certainly belongs as a daily highlight.

I could see these being big players in an adventure where the PCs have somehow ended up in the afterlife without properly dying.

Hmmm...
