Red P'nash Berries

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

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

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

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

A nice (um. maybe not the best word) idea. Not likely to be used in many adventures I think, but original. Go to Comment

I'm curious about the nature of the stone. Is it an actual rock, or like a kidney stone, or what? Go to Comment

Nice idea, I really like it, but honestly do you think women would really respect men any more eating this flower. I doubt it because they still have the "I carried you child around for 9 months" card to play.

As for use in game, my last group played a lot of in game pranks on each other. And I could see a nice salad of these flowers being served to numerous characters. Go to Comment

ouch. Points for originality. Good defining item, and I could see it as a good trick to really mess with a foreigner.

Princess Albretta of the Andalonic Consortium is a virtuous lass, a paragon of what a lady should be, in all ways. Physically, she is stunning, with an hourglass figure, long, flowing locks of auburn hair, and dainty, delicate facial features that only the most purebred nobility could offer. She is second to none in the College of the Consortium, first in her class - a shining example of a good student. And she is virtuous - attending all the necessary ceremonies to Vashjar, the local deity.



But perhaps a beautiful mind and spirit are not enough to fight off the alluring call of the physical body. As of late, the princess' gowns fit a bit tigher, as the hour glass has slowly but surely yielded a bubble in the midsection.



The king is furious, for the Duke of Onderhol, who was betrothed to Albretta, has suddenly become adamantly opposed to marrying said Princess, robbing the Consortium of promised prestige and wealth.



Now there is a witchhunt - or, more appropriately, a man hunt. Ten thousand Sovereigns to the one who brings in the culprit. Rest assured, the minor courts have turned into snake-pits. Everyone is looking to frame someone. And they are willing to pay to hear what they want. All eyes are turned to Nefaris, the King's local court Wizard, who is allegedly all seeing. He would surely be able to reveal the perpetrator, for the right price of course.



((and of course, Neferis also has a basket of curious Green Flowers from a far off land. Neferis is responsible for the "impregnation" - but his fraudulent fortune-telling scheme is sure to merit him with a great deal of money.))
