The Other Wandering Carnival..

The PC's see a large caravan of more then a dozen large wagons. Some are laden with cages occupied by odd creatures. Many diverse and odd people travel either on or beside the horse-drawn wagons.

This is The Carnival of Forgotten Souls. Go to Comment

I think this is an excellent idea.
There is room for many, many suggestions with this idea. I do not have any at the moment, but I can't to see what other add to this list. Go to Comment

This is really cool. I like these book excerpts - they are so useful to populate libraries PC's encounter in their adventures and can give a world an amazing level of detail. Go to Comment

Cool item - excellent backstory.

The fact that it is a unique item and is currently in a rather unobtainable situation mitigates it's rather powerful effect.

Sending the PC's on a quest to regain the 'holy relic' from the dragon would be a good lesson for the PC's to do their research first... Go to Comment

In a word, wow! When my campaign gets going again from the summer hiatus I'll have to put this in my players' path :) (Evil GM grin...)

This is both a very specific and detailed environment, with the ability to be seamlessly dropped into virtually any campain world!

Now, the only thing is that it reminds me a little of the Dreams of Lorac from the early Dragonlance novels, but not enough for me to change my vote. 5/5 Go to Comment

valadaar's comment on 2006-08-29 11:12 AM
Wow, you would have to be _really_ desperate to use this one.

Seriously though, if the forest people are that desperate, then the success rate of this armour would need to be high to be worth it - if it killed/incapacitated more warriours then could use it, then this seems worse then simply fighting and dying gloriously.

Perhaps there are other herb or secret potion which would reduce/eliminate the pain and madness involved and so only outsiders who tried to use it would encounter the full detrimental effects of the armour. Personally, I'd take my chances using a fire-harded spear against metal equipped enemies then go through this :) Go to Comment

I think this is an excellent, well described NPC, but not the most exciting :)
As a brave old soldier, it may be his destiny to be brave once more before his days end.

I agree with Scrasamax - if you don't like the name, change it. Having it affect your vote in my mind is a little petty - so long as you don't use something like Jack the samurai, then it really should be about the quality of the submission. Go to Comment

Interesting, and really only good for ambushes. Causing your opponent to flinch is pretty important in combat, since they might not be able counter as effectively.

valadaar's comment on 2006-08-27 07:56 PM
I think that eating these should have more dangerous effects, though. I would consider all who ate of them to be somewhat tainted in some manner. Perhaps they are more suseptable to dark infuences, etc.

In any case, this is cool submission. Kudos! Go to Comment

valadaar's comment on 2006-08-27 07:39 PM
Not really unstoppable - it can be parried if someone knows it is coming. In truth it is not much more powerful then a shortbow. It's chief advantage is suprise, as well as the more precise control of a melee weapon. Go to Comment

Updated: Did not intend to make it an _always hit_ attack :) only that such an attack is possible. Again, it counts on suprise and disbelief for it's power. Go to Comment

Hmm, these would be a psycopath's dream item - to be able to show his victem his thoughts, and to let know their fear. Even Demons would appreciate this one :) Go to Comment

A Killer in Town

       By: caesar193

A vicious murder happens in a town that the party happens to pop in at. Under heavy suspicion as they are strangers, the party is forced to discover the perpetrator or have their reputations blackened, especially as more and more murders occur in the town, and mysteriously stop and restart when the party leaves to go kill off that evil necromancer who kidnapped the princess.

The only problem is that a demon, possessing one of the party, is the perpetrator. And the demon makes no signs that its living in the PC's head.

In fact, for all the party knows (except for the possessed person's), their companion is an evil murderer.

Do they try and execute their friend as he's a vicious murderer, and no evidence points to demonic posession? Or do they flee town with him, trusting him, and have their reputations destroyed?
