An interesting and simple addition to any steampunk/high magic campaign, but fraught with enough weaknesses to prevent it from becoming too over powered.
Also Ria, umm... Not sure how to put this, but imagine the object being used in a similar manner to a belaying pin, or candle stick for the purpose of satisfying a womans desires for male company. Now imagine such a device being hollow and able to be filled with water then heated up to the approximate temperature of a living person rather then icy cold metal. Go to Comment
Seeing this, I can't help but be reminded of http://web.mit.edu/2.009/www/experiments/steamCannon/ArchimedesSteamCannon.html
Apparently, this kind of weapon is a little more realistic than we probably thought. Go to Comment
The PCs realize that the demons are thriving from the fear and desperation of the village. In an idea of sure genius the PCs realize and try to convince the village that if they overcome their fear and act happy they can weaken the demons and perhaps drive them way.
Little did they know that this action would only draw Cholek himself from the cave for an attempt at total annihilation of the village. Hope the PCs are ready. Go to Comment
Hmmmm.... So they can make everyone happy and bring down the wrath of Cholek upon the village, or capture a mini demon of Cholek's, and bring it to Daerun, but then, if Cholek knew of this, and Daerun, he might slaughter the village and get he h*ll outta there. Either way, the PCs are in a tough fix. Of course, if the PCs are quick about getting the demon to Daerun, then the village may be saved.
Hmmmm.... The setting is perfect, now for the perfect villain... For the question of WHO, why not make it the one in Seceret life of the assasin. That would be sweet. Now for why........ Lets look at the possibilities... A third party wanting to overthrow both religions and become the dominant one, The local insane anarchist, someone that thinks more attention should be paid towards town security and is willing to go to extremes to prove their point, etc. Lots of Possibilites.

Despite the fact that I don't like multiple religions and sets of gods, this was a good solid quest that could easily be modified to one's liking. It's a nice tense city atmosphere for the PCs to do their work in, too. One complaint - if it's apparent that someone is setting up the two religions for war, then why are they still mad at each other? Go to Comment
Remember that evil may not be just putting in input like, "Kill the peasant and take the horse, trading is for fools!" But it may also be deceptive andmake defeating or even finding its force difficult. Go to Comment
May be quite tolerable if you manage to defeat forces you do not like. If strongly Good aligned, you surely want to defeat that Evil overlord, and once you do that, the Evil voice stops. May have other powers which might make it desirable(or not so). But what is the item's History? Go to Comment
If it takes too long to get rid of the crown, or if some of the voices aren't silenced, it could drive the wearer insane. ("I do what the voices in my head tell me to.") Or it could just make everyone else think the poor sod is severely schizophrenic. Especially if the character starts conversing out loud with the voices. Go to Comment
This is a quick but not so simple set up. Got a little overly complicated with the addition of the aborted child and all that (had to read it a couple times to figure out which assistant we were talking about) but the sub has a good twist and mystery even without that. Could be simple greed that there can only be one Holy Man/Witch in this here town and so the competition had to be dealt with.
