From the Book of Corvus (The Later Volumes part IV), "The experiment to make a shadow orb failed, though it did make an artistic splat upon the walls when the sun shined early in the mowning. Stopped staff from cleaning it up by turning one into a Wombat. I hate repeating myself. "

"I became visable today. Perhaps trapping Shadowclots in a glass globe is not a great idea." Go to Comment

It is the very lubricant that allows the shadow realm its ease of movement, slipping and sliding between all of those other dimensions and planes. Devilish stuff! Go to Comment

This is one of those semi-mundane items that a character of mine loves to collect, not to mention the uses he could find (not the most morally implicated) Go to Comment

Can't slay gods, it has only a bonus ;-)

The being IS god-like, but is it really a god? And this thingy has weakened it before, so it may weaken it more, if someone lives long enough to combat and harm it.


...just to ask, how many campaigns are based on horrible deities, that were weakened and imprisoned, and it could somehow return... Go to Comment

Many, many, many campaigns.
But this specific deity was not imprisoned. It just takes a really long time to fly through space.
At least, that's what I got from reading it. Go to Comment

It is not YET imprisoned. Because, if you can weaken it, but not kill, what else to do with it?

...that could be the follow-up campaign, let the heroes retire, move the time forward a hundred (or a million) years, and voila! Instant campaign with evil imprisoned deity attached. Go to Comment

I just now thought of something: Even were humans to find some of this crystal, how could they even dream of destroying Zal-Ghombvis? Even the Dorlyans couldn't do it, and they had these weapons, plus they were like demigods of war!

Oh.

Right. Well, I haven't really played the Call of Cthulhu game, which is surprising. I've only read the stories. Go to Comment

Actually, no.
You can't slay gods with it. It merely has a bonus. And it's not a weapon, it's a material for making weapons. Go to Comment

It's not imprisoned. Read the Character entry "Emperor Zal-Ghombvis". Go to Comment

This sounds more like a basis for a campaign than a single item.

It also sounds like Fantasy call of Cthullu, as mere mortal are fighting off Extraplanar, extradimensional, extraterrestrials, which can slay gods if they awake.

Also, why do these crystal effects extra terrestrials? ETs have the same vibrations as people of the world? And to these crystals, which are from another world, people are the ETs?

I have to give this one a big XXX third strike AAANNNNNNNKKKK and give the opposing family a chance to steal. Go to Comment

Actors on a Stage

       By: MysticMoon

The PCs come across a town with a strange curse: Every morning, those who have grown up here wake up with the memories of someone else. They do not find this strange and have no idea it is happening. They calmly wake up and start these new lives as though they have always been that way.

The cause: A wizard who lived there was spurned by a maiden he was infatuated with. His attempt to manipulate her memories into believing they were already together and that she loved him went horribly awry.
