Death from above!
Scattered around the maze are a number of traps to remove intruders from this existence. One of these is a soaking, freezing death. Above sections of the ceiling are pyres designed to melt the ice that comprises the ceiling and bring it down on top of intruders. The result varies: cuts from sharp edges of ice, bruises from chunks of the ceiling, and most dangerously, a soaking wet party, absolutely lethal in the pyramid's freezing interior. Go to Comment

Down the rabbit hole
A dungeon staple, this one is particularly at home within the pyramid's maze, because the icy surface makes sliding down into a hole very easy and hard to stop. Care should be taken whenever the floor begins to tilt. A single misstep could send someone sliding to their death, whether it be from the fall or the icy spikes at the end. Go to Comment

Updated: I think that just about does it. This should be ready for public consumption. Thanks goes out to Muro, Pieh, and everyone else who helped me flesh this place out properly. Go to Comment

Which was indeed the point. It's more useful for the majority of submissions to be lower to middle strength adventure locations, but occasionally, you just have to have a high level place. Not everywhere in the world is a safe place for your PCs to be, even when they're known heroes. Besides, would you really expect something less than this for a phoenix's prison? Go to Comment

An interesting little adventure - quite a high level one at that!

Nothing subtle about creatures as powerful as a Pheonix or the Taigos. Go to Comment

Very nice indeed! I'm having a hard time trying to think up a possible hook for this, but other than that, well done! Go to Comment

{Siren no Orakio} 10:20 pm: Needs a little note on how it gets out of Hell on occasion, though
{Chaosmark} 10:21 pm: Someone gets lucky and kills a demon wearing such armor, or makes a dark pact for it.
{Chaosmark} 10:21 pm: Same as with just about any demon-tainted item. Go to Comment

I am always a fan of Garage Sale from Hell items. This is a classic. It has a lot of uses. Good plot potential. And it has a subtle weakness (the staring) which is a great "clue" for adventurers. It is a good solid item.

The write up is a touch sort. I don't mind short if it hits everything I want. You could of added plot possiblities to this (as they are endless, you could easily toss up a few), to prime the pump of the GMs.

In some ways, I could see this item being "a class of items". While the spell or technique might be somewhat rare, I could see others duplicating this spell for their own enchnated purposes (or once the idea gets around sacrificing someone to buy the magic enchantment from a demonsoul).

No, for two reasons. The first, it's an old-type camera. You know, the huge box kind, with honest to heaven picture plates? I suppose someone could come up with a telephoto lens for one, but it'd be difficult. Second, the enchantment on the camera and plates don't extend far enough. Perhaps it might work if someone could make a telephoto lens to focus and enhance the power and effect of the camera's enchantment, but otherwise, no. Personal range only. (my conception was also single-person only, but I don't think that's essential to the sub) Go to Comment

{Cheka Man} 2:04 pm: if the pic is developed, what happens then?
{Chaosmark} 2:07 pm: I left it mostly up the GM, but I envisioned either the picture looking entirely normal, or perhaps you get one of those animated ones like they had in the Harry Potter movies,
with the pictured person going absolutely nuts inside the picture.
{Cheka Man} 2:08 pm: trying to escape?
{Chaosmark} 2:08 pm: Partially, but mostly to get attention.
{Chaosmark} 2:08 pm: No sound can escape, but lips could be read.
{Cheka Man} 2:09 pm: if you bury the picture, would that drive the soul insane?
{Chaosmark} 2:10 pm: I had also thought about what it might be like for the soul so captured, their experience inside the picture, but I definitely wanted that left up to a GM. Depending on how you
wanted to handle it, they could be fully aware and trapped within the room they were in when the picture was taken, or they go blank until reunited with a body, put into stasis.
{Chaosmark} 2:11 pm: Which is what determines the answer to your question.
{Cheka Man} 2:11 pm: if they went mad you could set them free close to the body and the person would then go mad
{Chaosmark} 2:12 pm: Mhmm.
{Chaosmark} 2:12 pm: Crafty political cultists could discredit rivals in such a fashion.
{Cheka Man} 2:12 pm: and could then be put in a loony bin Go to Comment

I like this for a Western game!! Perfect



Would fit in well, with the built-in superstition factors. From what I've read over the years, some (many?) Native American tribes were deathly afraid (against) having their pictures taken from a "soul-stealing" perspective.

The summary text is amusing and interesting - the way it should be.
Simple and concise, and quite usable for the right setting.

Does it work with a telephoto lense? :P Go to Comment

Yes, this little flower can be quite the shocker. You could see such a flash for hundreds of yards... imagine what it will do to tracking and escaping victims. Go to Comment

Indeed, it shouldn't do any big harm. Now if you want to go along this route, consider that it is a breath weapon... the outside of the body is relatively well protected, the inside of the mouth is not. There could be some damage due to frequent use (and cancer in the most extreme cases). For simplicity it can just burn the mouth of the drinker a bit. ;) Go to Comment

I'm just wondering if drinking the brew distilled from its petals is dangerous in the long run? Since sun light contains harmful UV radiation, wouldn't drinking the sunlight stored in the plant's petals have adverse effects on one's health evantually? Go to Comment
