Ascention Ceramony of the Burgan Tribe

Your description of the ceremony is good, and this adds nicely to the p'nash berry posts. It would be nice to know more about the ceremony - why do they do it? Does anything happen as a result?

I imagine players watcing this, being like, huh... and then leaving. There is no obvious reason for them to get involved. Go to Comment

Same comment for this and the other berries (I'd have made them one post I think).

I like the concept, and I like the application we discussed in chat where you had a group of "harmless" monsters become very deadly by using this.

In my campaigns, monsters would not often readily suicide, although some would I reckon. Fanatics... But most animals tend to have a decent sense of self preservation... so I would see this being used more as a last-ditch defense than an attack. Also, in a world with gunpowder or flash powder type item, this possibility already exists, but just isn't used by DMs much. BUT, I like your creative use of berries to do this... it gives it a different feel, and I like that.

I wonder how genuinely one must feel "euphoric" about being about the explode... maybe they drug themselves up to help. 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

Easy: On the bottom of the page is a "Suggest a submission" field. Type there the name or node number of the submission you want to link to. So "Ascention Ceramony of the Burgan Tribe" or simply 1844. Click Suggest. Done. Go to Comment

A creature covered in paste does not experience any change in mental state. Drinking the berries and being covered in there paste is two seperate ways to use the berry.

Frenzied as in highly excitable. Four year old with a double expresso and a fist full of lollipops.

Activated paste is only active while exposed to the frenzied mental state. If removed, it is only paste again. If the person losses thier mental state, it is only paste.

Roughly equal amounts is ideal. A drop of one paste on another will only cause a drop of the other paste to react. If the person can maintain thier mental state, they can keep the rest of the paste active. Go to Comment

CrimsonShadow's comment on 2005-11-30 10:51 AM
I think this is an interesting idea that has potential. However, I have some questions:

-What is the mental state required for the creature? How do they maintain that state if the berry changes their mental state?
-What exactly do you mean by “frenzied” mental state? Do they become crazy, violent, or just highly excitable?
-Once activated, is it possible to remove the paste and store it in some other fashion?
-Is an equal amount of each paste required to create the explosion? Or will one drop of activated red paste cause an entire humanoid covered with white paste to explode?

Just some thoughts… 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

Remind me to wear full armor when tramping in fantasy forests.

Another bit of useful knowledge for ranger-types, and a plant even druids would consider destroying... solid idea. Go to Comment

Once again, a very Moonish post. I like this one though, since there aren't very many predatory plants available. This one is quite possibly getting used in Tyren. Go to Comment

I would recommend making the barb very hard to remove, but perhaps the posion not immediate. That way the animal would run away from the tree before dying. I say this because you don't want to have baby oak trees growing in the shade of older ones. Also, I think a predatory plant would want to spread sprasely, otherwise the outer ones would kill animals and the inner ones in a dense grove would not get fed. But that's only a minor detail.

I LOVE the idea. I would change a couple things to make it more useable in an actual game instead of just a wonderful idea.

I would change the gestation period to a shorter so that the effects could be better appreciated during an game. Some game last 9 months+ in character time, but a shorter time would make it more useable.

I love the idea of drinking at the wedding. I would say that there is a chance of the blossom not causing the expected affect. So perhaps the blossom doesn't take and he feels no ill effects. If this happens then the husband will be required to take the drink again when it is proven that the wife is pregnant.

No doubt that the female would have a very respected role in this society! Go to Comment

I held the idea up to my player group and all of them found that it was rather a silly idea.

In the real world, it might do nice, but in the game world.... what is the use?
Especialy if you are still in the stage where your adventurers are on a traveling path and well ehhr in my group sex is not an isue... I see them flirt a little, but that is just about it.

Maybe in the real world, we would be very happy to have this, but I think most men are too chicken to ever take it. If they would, you would find out that they would never impose a pregnancy on their wife again.... Hmmm would be good for the world population. We do need to decline the human numbers to about half of what they are now... Go to Comment

This should be given to teenage fathers in rl. It would certainly encourage safe sex. Go to Comment
