A different item, a nice, non-overpowered sentient item that could easily be linked into other things.

This is something good to tuck into your bustling city. A nice contrast and a good reason for it being so.

I like the idea of the threat being purely psychological, perhaps tied to a sort of mass hysteria. No actual undead walk here, except on very rate occasions, so it is not an undead game preserve.

This is a little gem. I love the source of traditions. This would especially work for alternate history worlds where society fell back into medieval just before the 20th century.

This feels like suburbia in many places. We've got places like this where I live. Most annoying - I'm usually trying to find places at night, when its foggy, and I'm late...

I second Scras. Would love to have seen more.

Those laws could also push folks to build _down_ into the ground, potentially creating opportunities for dungeons.

Why can't they be found?

This is missing far too much detail.

What strategies do they use to avoid detection? How does one contact them? What role does the illithid play? GMs are supposed to be able to use this, so you need to provide the background details, not just what PCs might know.

Format wise, there are inconsistent capitalizations and spelling errors.

Using demons and summoned monsters to perform assassinations is a bit interesting, especially if the victims are PC's. Go to Comment

I love the idea of magic items occuring spontanously, rather then engineered like most game systems.

Pearl Spider Economics

       By: Murometz

These rare, fist-sized spiders do not make webs, but rather excrete secretions which harden upon contact with air. These "droppings" resemble barley-sized spider eggs, or even lustrous pearls, once the slime coating them, dries up. In fact, dried Pearl Spider "drops" are indistinguishable from the marine varieties produced by mollusks, and hence of identical value on the open market!

Several centuries ago, they were studied by naturalists, and several observations were made. Firstly, was that these spiders "lay" these pearls for no apparent or discernible "natural" reason, and secondly, the naturalists had discovered that the more these spiders ate or were fed--and they were true omnivores--the larger the spider pearls came out.

A cottage industry began. Enterprising merchants hunted and collected these creatures across the lands, erecting spider-farms for the manufacture of Spider Pearls. It wasn't long before someone got the idea to force-feed the spiders, ala foie gras geese, and soon, the fattened spiders began pooping out pearls of great size! (relatively speaking). The regular pearl market came to disarray, and prices and value fluctuated wildly.

[b]Plothook[/b] The Mermen Mercantile Alliance hires the party to eradicate all terrestrial Pearl Spider Farms!
