Personally, I like powerful items (to a degree) and a one shot hurricane item does not bother me, so long as it was dang expensive and difficult to create.
It could easily cause an "Oh Crap!" moment :)

I would have it take effect over a slightly longer period then 30 seconds. To affect miles and miles of clouds, the magic effect would need to take a while.
What if there were no clouds? I could see them appearing, but 30 seconds?

Now, this really is the equivalent to a magic Atomic Bomb and would need to be treated as such with attendant magical protections, security forces, etc.

An enemy mage could easily teleport (if available) into a city, plant and activate it, and then leave. Go to Comment

Hmm.

3 for an _ok_ plot. +.5 for the great moral discussion it lit off!

Now, just because a spider is a big, evil, man-eating beast, does not mean the PCs' can't do business with it. Business is business after all! :)

The only leverage the spider has is that it knows where the evil mage is, and evil mages are Always worth killing :)

So there could be some negotiation. And then when they are done, then they kill the spider. Go to Comment

Well, this is neat :) Am ambivalent at the poetry, but it is something to this point unique.

I like the item, and it is a true trickster's tool.

Good job!

The premise of an addictive spider bite is interesting, if a bit weird. Usually bites are intended to either disable their prey/attacker or at least drive them away.

This would make an excellent PC background as well and is a great view from the other side. Just as I prefer my white with a ting of black, so too black should be tinged with white.

This is a great villain, feels like he would be quite at home in Gotham or even Game of Thrones. Go to Comment

A good compliment to Forge. And a good tie in.

Heh, another 2.0. This one has the seed of something interesting, but the time to make it into a decent sub was not spent. Go to Comment
Shield of Blinding Light

valadaar's comment on 2010-02-15 10:19 AM
An okay item, but the submission should have focused more in the item itself and less on it's background.

Being picky, the Greeks did not use shields of the 'Tower Shield' style. I'm not sure if even the Roman shield would qualify as a tower shield.

This has echos of The Pillars of the Earth, a great TV show (haven't read the book.)

As the others have stated, this is a nice realistic plot with potential to become something much bigger.

Well, this is quite neat. The fairy tail entrance is confusing to me - not sure if it was grandma or riding hood that got axed. I like the wizard's story best anyway. Maybe because I am old and sentimental :)
