An interesting location - the old Widow's Garden.

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.

The Grey Talon Assassins

valadaar's comment on 2008-04-25 11:17 AM
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.

An interesting concept, but I have a problem with this.

This really only works with Impotent, incompetent, or Not Really Good gods. If you have a setting where the good gods are actually good, they would oppose this directly unless they were weak. And if they are weak, than evil should also be weak and a poor tool, or else evil would be the dominant force.

But for low magic/evil ascendant worlds, this could work.

I think you were reading/watching the Borne series on this one :)  An interesting idea!

A well detailed order, and it would an interesting world indeed that allowed them to openly exist at all.

Governments typically jealously guard the right to kill.

Interesting. Ghosts with firmly limited powers. I would think that if they can bear weapons, and be struck by regular weapons without harm, that they could simply attempt to seize the weapons of the intruders and struggle for possession should their own be broken. Go to Comment

WWMWBI - If a New Form of Magic Occured

Really excellent that deserves attention. Love it!

Oh, and this quote from Scras is somewhat ironic, we _did_ get a new type of magic, and that is Mobile.

"While it is significant, it doesn't offer much of a threat to the status quo, much like the OS's of Microsoft's rivals. " Go to Comment

Moonlight shines down on the tranquil scene of a slumbering inn along one of the many roads that cross the land. Trees sway gently in the night air, and the stars twinkle brightly. All is quiet as the PCs snore away, a fine tendril of smoke curlsrnunder their door. The tavern is on fire! This is particularly bad news if the PCs own any horses - the screaming they hear is probably from their mounts! Panicky people are rushing about with buckets of water, trying to tame the flames. The fire fighting effort is not very coordinated as everybody is either hungover or still drunk, including the PCs. Hurry!
