The idea itself is a good one, the Dhole could be the focus of an entire campaign... some destuctive sorecerer wants to awaken the ancient threat to help bring about the end of the world? Its a bit munchkin, sure, but sometimes a new twist on the überpowerful monster can be fun.. It´s not up to the usual high standards of the Cap´ns works, but not as bad as its made out to be.. I could work with this..

And of course, we can use it as a lesson that even the best among us can have a bad day..:-)

Edit: I do like the idea of a all-powerful devourer slumbering deep beneath the earth, perhaps to be awakened at the end of Creation. Yep, I like that...

Hmm

What to do about it?
Well, the pc's could help rally the surface worlders, they could help find ancient and old forces of good, reclusive forces ofcourse. Help bring regent's and kings to one table for talks, protect diplomats on there way to that table.

A brilliant idea, a bit like in the dragonlance saga when chaos returns.

Hmm the only difficult part would be to stretch the time from birth ( or return or whatever ) till the final battle but there are probably a plethora of things that could happen first.

oh and what about finding artifacts.....

hmm yeah .. this could work i think Go to Comment

Well, OK, but what to do about it?

Say the heroes can work as diplomats with that Underworld races, and they can succed as such, but...

To what end? Gods probably know about this threat, but they themselves have a hard time to solve it. Failed? Sorry, End Of World Now, in your cinema and everywhere.

It seems that defeating such a creature is impossible.

- convert every being capable into a believer, to give gods more power (if possible). So it might be defeated, or somehow restrained, or something.
- find some alternate source of Reality etc., for the beast to consume. It better be unlimited, if such thing exists. May be a philosophical problem. Say that reality and order, as we imagine it, is created in our mind (that is true in some ways: we don't see the world as it is, we twist our view to our needs). Would require a large group of people to give up something, up to dreams or even sanity. Then comes the task of convincing IT somehow to agree. Or perhaps to force it asleep, and somehow fuel what our minds produce, to ITs mind. So it will dream of consuming reality, which is born in our minds and dreams. Gods see the world as it is, so this human weakness/deformity may actually be usefull! Just don't forget to care of those thousands of raving lunatics you produce this way... Go to Comment

A great idea that could spawn a campaign!

I would take it that any blood lost would not be regenerated, or perhaps the wounds do not heal and they constantly bleed.

I would make only certain passages readable by the non-vampire, everything else a jumbled mess. Just enough to keep the victims interest in it and instead of it happening at night...probably make it just happen whenever they read the book after nightfall or something.

Maybe the book can't even be read by direct light, has to be the light of the moon or something. Go to Comment

Err... You named your son Cain? As in Cain, the first murderer in the world, according to Biblical mythology? Cain, the dude who bashed Abel over the head with a rock? Go to Comment

Well, Mikhal, the answer to your questions:
I really don't care.
It could be infinite pages long for all I care about this item.
But the blood-writing, I would figure yes, because its a ritual thing. Go to Comment

The instructional part is good, in that it could help keep the interest of the reader. It could go inform the characters about the powers possesed by a vampire, and their history, and it also could teach an incantation that is suppose to make the character impervious to a vampire.

The spell would consist of pouring the one's own blood upon the book to ensure dominance over vampires. When completed with the spell, though, the character would mentally conform to a zombie-like state where he appeared, and physically remained the same, but he would now be under the command of the vampire that wrote the book. He would have no sense of humor, nor plans to invite nor keep anyone close in his personal life.

This would be a way that a vampire enlisted minions to carryout such menial tasks as transporting his casket, finding a safe haven, and providing protection as he slept. All this without actually having to search them out. Go to Comment

I take offense to this item. My son's name is Cain. :) He is.

Seriously, it actually sounds intriguing. Question about the cutting the wrist part. Does it happen all in one night? For instance, a non-vampire opens it and befalls the curse and must then slake the books thirst with their blood by cutting their wrist. Now does it drain them completely that night? Or does this happen over a peiod of a few days. And if so, do they have an recollection of cutting their wrist? Wounds open, closed, heal over night?

edit - ok I see where it says over night now. I missed that part. But does the victim have any recollection of cutting their wrist? Go to Comment

No, I didn't name him after that Cain no. But his name is Cain, yes. And he goes to a Catholic school. Go to Comment

Nice description of him, but having his past and motivations would make him more useabl.

1) Another searcher for our Sword of Unattainable Glory perhaps?

2) Maybe he is sick of living and knows the key to his self-destruction could be in the same place that mass destruction happened in times past. Go to Comment

Hmmm...Perhaps.
I'm just not sure what I should do for his past. Use your imagination. Make somethin' up. Oh, and it has to have something to do with the sunken peninsula (See Unnatainable Glory Plot) Go to Comment

Bringing forth an old spectre from the depths of the Citadel, a submission from 2003, when our standards were not as they are now. Also, one of the former members I would like to see return to the Citadel, if he is still out there, wandering somewhere.

The basic commentary on the submission would be a default link to Moonhunter's Gold standard guidelines, as Asarth is, we have a description and a vague motive and a hint of a goal.

This would be a worthy submission for being expanded on/rewritten for the Citadel at large, so long as it was done in the lofty Melnibonean/Lovecraftian style of the Good Penguin himself Go to Comment
