suggestion: format the opening poem and the later one inside "centered blocks". Get rid of the slashes.

I liked this a lot. A weird island, a weird people, and some weird gems. What more do you want? A good tale! I like Seenu.
I get a feel for him, yet he remains vague...I like that.

I also like Last Wish plothook. Its not an original one, but I have a soft spot in my heart for it. If I were a PC I would develop a strange attachment to that Old Woman, persevering through all to get the diamond to Sekkita! "Despite all my sins, in this I shall not fail! I will not let a dying woman down!" Then again, I would grow obsessed with the gem too, so umm... Go to Comment

Great idea! If they actually walk the ship on the shore I picture the ship leaning over pretty violently in order to allow the most amount of creatures to help move it. If only a few on the bottom can move it then they have the strength to do some real action in the oceon. Unless it is a flat bottom boat of course. But not only is the boat moving onto shore, I picture it rolling from one extreme to the next with the actions of the creatures sharing the load amongst those on both sides of the hull.

Forget doldrums, if these things find a rich source of food I bet they would stop a ship, even with a fare wind, dead in its track in order for to feed for awhile. Go to Comment

Thanks for another bizzare lifeform! Strange as entertaining, a good mix.


Hey, and why didn't anyone think of using them for purposes of navigation, at least in times of need? Go to Comment

I would even expect tiny colonies being kept alive on a boat directly - keep one in a jug and keep it small. With easy maintenance you could have an awkward compass. Go to Comment

If you want to know which way is what, take down the sails and wait. I mirror manfred there, an experienced sailor would know that they can be used for navigation if the compass is ruined. Go to Comment

Very original! I think a little more National Geographic type of ecology details might have put this over the top, and/or some campaign specific marching barnacles anecdotes. Having said that, I love them and the comical (and not so comical)situations these critters can cause! Go to Comment

These critters have a permanent place in my campaign worlds! The Barnacles cry out for another follow-up post, featuring their peculiar brand of mayhem!

I wish I could think of one. :) Go to Comment

Highly amusing. I can just imagine seeing a boat walking up on the shore all by itself. Go to Comment
