Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Tundra/ Arctic)
valadaar's comment on 2017-03-07 12:22 PM
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.

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.

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

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.

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

I find Cheka's comment here appropriate - it seems a bit too modern and cosmopolitan for most worlds I've had access to. It does conjure up the Disney feel somewhat. Go to Comment

A useful detail to be added to an adventure - just so happens that something important is in this floodplain, and of course, a flood is coming or in progress when the PCs need to be there.

An update would be nice of course, but it is still a good detail one can use.

I like the idea of reusing real world locations, but it could use more serial numbers filed off..

In a high magic world, like the Harry Potter universe, this would fit very well. It would be a fine neighbor for Diagon ally. Go to Comment

The secret for immortality has been discovered by an eccentric wizard/mad scientist. Its found you need to reapply once a month. As people stop dying, and the birth rate increases exponentially, people are forced into homelessness, because of the need for food reamins the same, and food is not being produced fast enough to feed the undying population. The PCs have to find the creator and kill him, and destroy production, to save the world from undying, unending torture from hungryness.
