In the months since I wrote this post, I have found a few other online resources that run very much along the same vein.  Here are two that I will list here in case someone finds them useful:

The Characters come to town during a festival. After participating in festival events (duels, horse races, feats of strength and things like that) the players are approached by a playwright who's looking for inspiration and is planning an expedition to a nearby dungeon to find it. After seeing all of the players skills in action he offers them gold to .accompany him. Go to Comment

I never anticipated how much awesome material would spawn from The Staff of The Golden King. Dossta, I tip my hat to you. This is a great piece with a power that is not only inspiring and useful, but themed appropriately. I am greatly enjoying out almost symbiotic relationship in posting. I feel like this could go on for many more submission, especially if we take the time to communicate ideas. Good work, dude. Go to Comment

I'm absolutely captivated by this submission. I'm not sure exactly why, but it seems like the perfect combination of elements. Very nicely done.

Sounds exactly like the Upright Citizens Brigades "Bucket of Truth" skits only not funny.  In fact



"Drawing near the Mirror, you can almost hear the sound of children's laughter and it brings great joy to those who view it.  At night the colors calm and begin to shimmer like the aurora, as seen in only the coldest northern climes.  Gazing at the swirling aurora will instill the viewer with a sense of profound peace, as if wrapped in a mother's embrace.  "



 



that sounds down right unnerving.

This item makes perfect sense. To use it for paladin's vigils is a great idea.

Nicely done! Come back Dossta! Go to Comment

Thanks, man. Bouncing these things off each other has been a lot of fun, and there is so much left in this world to flesh out. We should probably consider making a codex for all of this stuff at some point. Go to Comment

I've been rolling a quest line around in my head that involves the lost fragments, but wasn't ready to post it yet. I may add it to this post if I don't have time to flesh it out properly, but it will hopefully end up being its own submission. I'll let you know when it's done. Go to Comment

Awesome! Such a great creation myth, and I'm glad I could help inspire it. I feel like the myth overshadows the temple itself but they have been intertwined in an awesome way. The temple mimicking the light as it was when they were together is just great. Good work. Go to Comment

I think expanding the temple and its typical staff, roles around the church, would be good. Maybe describe the outside appearance as well.

As for the Myth, I think describing the examples given by the faith and some of the church hierarchy would be a good start. If you want/need any help, let me know. Go to Comment

Reread it, as it is the Daily Highlight, and it's still a wonderful piece. It really feels alive and believable (for a fantasy setting). The sample scene is great, especially the dialogues between Illuminator and Illuminatress. It doesn't need any more as far as expanding the current content, what is there is complete. I do think more could be created around the church and its religon, as we have seen with the items associated, but it doesn't need more at all.



Great work, Dossta. Never stop writing.

Effort obviously went into this submission and I enjoyed the myth of the temple. I still find it lacking though. I felt that the place was empty. Who goes there? Does anyone tend to the place? What can the PCs do here? And so forth.

For me this a solid idea with a lot of promise. Go to Comment

Dossta, thank you for adding to this. It is now alive in a way that makes your first version(which was not bad) pale in comparison. I am voting again to reflect the changes.

'A  Sample Scene' stands out for me, and the rest is darn good too!



Could be intertwined into an over-arching plot or just used as is (as in the PCs just happen to come across the temple).



Good one! Congrats on 2nd place Quest win!

The Writing's on the Floor

       By: Scrasamax

The PCs encounter a strange set of artistic drawings done on the ground as they pass through a city. It has been done in chalks and no one saw who did it. Wizards might recognize the writing within the colored square as an obscure and dead language with a message stating that a prominent wizard and a retired bard have discovered how to populate Arcadia with the spirits of the dead!

Is it a local hoax, or are the PCs crossing the path of a very deranged and possibly dangerous mage?
