This is an insanely cool idea. My mind wraps around an entire campaign with the characters just trying to figure out, and fight, this new enemy from the far reaches of civilization. (weak man's prison is great!)

I like the idea of a small group of these that continue to morph and the opportunity for more to be created if needed. The characters may meet, and almost defeat, an enemy in one shape, it gets away and heals and in the process morphs something else that may make him less familiar until the truth is revealed somehow. The joy of the unique battles fighting never before met creatures that have the power of the Fey and have united an army. Man, this is a whole campaign waiting to be played. I love it.

Could even maybe have the characters find a place where the Fey can effect them, maybe not 4 arms but something. By that time, the fear of mutants should ravage the land. The character may get some kind of benefit but is forced to hide it when visiting civilization and must be careful when they use it otherwise they get lynched by the fearful mobs. Go to Comment

Maybe characters like this could give rise to myths about abandoned children being raised by wild animals. It would probably seem like a logical conclusion to people who don't know about genetics. Go to Comment

Of course, I should say that you could also present the "weak men" as the antagonists, but it would be more difficult. Go to Comment

Ya know, I didn't know there would be such a positive response to this character. I thought that he may have been deemed "too wierd". Hmmm... Go to Comment

Hmmm...Well, Anonymous....
It was my theory that it was the tribe's tradition for the new chief to eat the old chief. Go to Comment

This is actually nice, most nice.
And as for your worries - it will never get weird enough! Just keep getting weirder! The players will love unique opponents.

I agree with the suggestion that, while he is a positive character, Four-Arms should be an antagonist for the weak men hiding behind the false shelter of civilization, forfeiting individual power for the might of the masses...

A great idea for any barbarous tribe, human, orc or otherwise. He could indeed be the product of infernal congress.

> Elven lord Ianthal Serevemon was an up and coming leader in the Elven community of Lereshala.

Though he'd likely be amused to be thought an Elven Lord, Ian Thal is actually a writer and performane artist in the Boston area. http://ianthal.blogspot.com Go to Comment

Nice idea, but a bit grandiose and apocalyptic for me! Go to Comment

Yes, come to think of it, it has too few limits. If you're going to use this item, please, please, PLEASE put more limits on it. PLEASE! Go to Comment

It is just like the One Ring. A little to powerfull and much to destructive. But I like that. Go to Comment

Don't be dismayed Captain, you have posted much better items, you will again.
About the item:
It is just like with nuclear weapons - if it is there, some fool might just use it, and if its ONLY danger is that it might kill the user inside an inferno it released, taking the whole surroundings with him, and it has no limits on activation (one does not need that much to set off a working nuclear warhead) it WILL be used too often - I suppose the cauldron is not consumed by its own rage, right? A reusable nuclear weapon? Imagine what certain folks, say, in Palestina, Iraq, Ireland or Basque would give for this...their very souls, and their grandma as a bonus.

Duh, I don't like nukes that much, except when dropping them at the Zerg... 3/5 Go to Comment

This is a big cauldron of woop ass. Some of these items from the ancient days of Strolens are a window back into our early days of gaming.

Definitely a stand in for a nuke as EM suggests, to be treated accordingly. Go to Comment

This is soooo different from the CP subs that we have seen more recently. I imagine that if you were to write a similar item today, it would only vaguely resemble this. Go to Comment
