Bumping the controversial giant scissors! :)

Hmm, if the outer edges are instead sharpened, this weapon would gain more usability, being usable somewhat conventionally as a normal, if heavy, sword. This is especially important since the mechanical complexity of the blade could fail after a hard parry or the like. Fully open, the blades would cover a wide area and might even serve as a weapon-breaker.

Odd, flamboyant with definite downsides, it still has value. Go to Comment

Very impractical, but wonderfully different. I like these a lot, despite how impossible they seem to use. Go to Comment

Little idea here; takes scissors closes them and proceeds to thrust them into opponents neck, theeafter wrenching them open.

Sick I know but entertaining nontheless. Go to Comment

The core idea, I don't love it nor hate it, unlike others before me. The write-up is good quality and has added realism and extra spice to an otherwise plain and (to me at least) quite boring write-up of a particular type of weapon (I know there's weapon enthusiasts on this site but I'm just not one of them). So a score of 3.5.

Eeeek! The Jackass for fantasy. Personally against my tastes but I do see such types are sometimes necessary. I like that he doesn't take his loss of dignity so easily.


Plot hook:
Cleaners - a small gang of pickpockets has started to visit his performances regularly, of course not for the fun. Teldus or his manager will naturally want them to be removed, but can't call on his buddies for it could start a guild war.

Problem - during one of his exploits, Teldus has broken something _really_ important. A piece of ancient art, a holy relic, whatever. Promptly sent of on a quest, the heroes are hired to prevent him from getting killed. Go to Comment

Okay. my original comment was "too long". It may yet be. I did smirk and snort through the entire piece, which was a bonus.

I find him kind of like Joxer the Mighty, but without the warrior aspects. He is comedy relief for the campaign.

I found the roleplaying notes kind of short. Sure the rest of the pieces explains it, but I like bullet points in the rp notes. Go to Comment

Point taken on the length, Moon. I've noticed I tend to go overboard on explaining things. Perhaps my new goal should be shorter posts with equitable quality. I also added a few more role-play notes, though I'm afraid they're most reiterations of each other. Go to Comment

I love this, as the Moon said, it got me to snicker and snort.  It has a sort of classic roleplay feel to it, back when we kids roleplayed bluffing fighters, burely dwarves, and irreverant gnomes, before the days of vampire enui, the emotionally fractured detective and other such darker themed characters.  And it isn't too long, too long is rambaling, the writing here stays on topic, it is all about Teldus and his antics. I so glad this came up on the daily highlight and i got to read it.

A good NPC, made even more possible through the existence of healing magic. Could you imagine what some folks would do with that? Hell, some people do just the craziest things _without_ the benefit of magical healing...

You know, from the description, I was expecting something else. Like somebody who causes failure in other peoples projects (like a priest of Mathom, for example).

But Teldus is great. I like how he is forced into doing something he hates- being a professional idiot. Go to Comment

One more golden nugget here: there are already several comments (and views close to mine) that dragons should be seen as truly majestic beings.

Not so in some game worlds, where the Dragon is too often the prey of Man. If that is the case, this order can be employed to restore them to their former glory. What if the boneblight has actually for long plagued dragonkind, and only recently has the disease adapted to humans. Now that they are cured, they are much stronger than most people remember them; and they also have a useful ally in the monks. Sounds better?

---

Just an idea on the side: some would-be-dragonslayers will undoubtly try to mask as monks of this order. Not that they would succeed, they may just need to fool a dragon for a small moment, to gain a tactical advantage. They could succeed with the kill. How will the Tagma Drakontas (and dragons) react to such impersonation? Not too friendly I guess. Go to Comment

Well, "munchkin" refers to a player with very strong power-gaming tendencies above all else, generally with a disregard for coherency and good storytelling. "Uber" would probably go more with what you say... But you got it anyway. ;) Go to Comment
