A neat creature with a good mythic feel. Go to Comment

A good detailing, but as others have said, this is ground that has been trodden before.

What makes these guys different then your other soul-eating undead? Go to Comment

Great Codex - I'll need to work through the massive number of connect subs, though in my random, haphazard way. Go to Comment
Hewdamian Trolls
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Mountains)
valadaar's comment on 2015-09-16 02:38 PM
A different take on Trolls, it feels slightly forced (Trolls, but good!) but good nonetheless.

Cups and Rings

valadaar's comment on 2007-10-19 01:22 PM
Agreed. It should be voted upon, and added to, so now on my favorite list for contemplation.

Based on the first image Moon posted, I thought they could actually be the marks of some type of grinding operation (wheat?) but with notes that they also occur on the sides of stones blows that idea. Go to Comment

I like Arctic creatures, and this is certainly an interesting one. Odd for a carnivore to have the frame of a herbivore, I personally would have these as omnivores like brown bears. These could easily be used as creatures on an Alien planet.

Hotheads
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Tundra/ Arctic)
valadaar's comment on 2014-03-17 10:52 AM
A very odd creature - and I would have to say if the head gets hot enough to melt ice quickly, than it really is a magical creature - trying to obtain enough calories to do that would be prohibitive. This also helps do away the issue with all that heated air/steam in their tunnels.

That said, its an interesting critter - I do have a thing for arctic creatures in general.

True Trolls - A New Take On Trolls
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)
valadaar's comment on 2013-04-19 01:15 PM
I like this discussion and the back and forth discussion of the trolls. The fae nature of Trolls is something I'd adopt as well. The rubbery regenerator of AD&D is so much more shallow then these folks.

What a great submission and discussion. It would be neat to see a new artical which summarized and expanded using the commentary.

And what price is paid for casting the Detect Magic?

Perhaps you should apply the uncertainty theorm as well - casting a divination spell will always have an impact of some sort on the target. Go to Comment

Okay, I'd echo Zylithan, but with more force. There is so little different between the white and red that a second post really is not warranted. Go to Comment

Hmm, this one at least feels as if a middle portion has been gutted out from it.

Perhaps transplanting some of the answers provided in the comments might help this post out a bit. Go to Comment
Two Twines - The Elven Embassy
Locations  (Establishment)   (Forest/ Jungle)
valadaar's comment on 2014-03-10 08:55 AM
I like this place a lot - and if you have difficulty integrating elves this odd, than simply add them as a different type of elf different from your traditional ones.

I expect these elves would view Tolkienesque elves as no better than half-elves if elves at all.

valadaar's comment on 2017-04-05 12:16 PM
The piece that stuck out for me was the description of metallurgy and mining as Dwarvethurgy. I like the idea that some basic technologies would have been perfected by other races before humans, and that as a result, their naming may be quite different. The word for Mining in common could be different.

Interesting to think about. Go to Comment
