84. Candle of Imprisonment
If these candles are placed around a person, then a magical barrier keeps them confined. The prisoner cannot blow out the candles, only people outside the barrier. Go to Comment
Been done (the Mafioso-pizzeria angle), but redone well.
The best thing is, that he won't be suspected of any connection to those deeds... or, if actually proven, he would shed a few tears, and point at some random henchman, saying he was forced into cooperation, which everyone will believe. And he'll be clean again. Go to Comment
I love it! Only one line bothered me:
"all so that the one he hunts might make a mistake"
Actually, it didnt bother me as much as make me want to know more about his ultimate goals. Reading this line, I assumed that some sort of rival, ancient betrayal, or "Target" was coming. But.. it didn't come.
Also, You never mentioned the Piemaster as being cabable of magic. Yet he is able to keep a brilliant sorceress trapped in an animal form?
I like the idea and its a very well-written sub, short and to the point. A spymaster communicating through pie deliveries is one of those ideas tah readers and players will remember. Good job! Go to Comment
Odd but very cool. Just plain kooky frankly, but that's good as far as I'm concerned, and again, original and very usable. Well done. I give it five banana custard creme pies for success (and hope I just didn't inadvertently signal the death of an entire hamlet...) Go to Comment
To the south of The Diamond Desert are the fertile planes of Vallermoore which until a few years ago wasruled by the formidable Queen Yocasta . With her best troops, The Eyes of Yocasta the Queen kept order but at the price of any sort of political freedom. When her daughter died, the Queen's ministers hired the evil Dracia Eldren to force other girls to take on the role of the dead princess.
This led to a revolt and the evil Queen was overthrown. Sadly in the short term the region was overrun with criminals and societies like the White Knights formed to stop them. Go to Comment
At the center of the world sits the Citadel, perched atop the rocky crag known as The Godspire, which in turn juts forth from the region known to many as The Diamond Desert.
Here, knowledge of the world's most fascinating and frightening locales is gathered, as well as tales of the land's greatest legends. Scholars the world over travel here to partake of this font of information, and it is a popular destination for adventurers, as well. Is it not said that one should know his enemy as himself? Yet, only the boldest and most competent can overcome the rigorous journey to get here, for the desert is a place of great danger, and the Godspire is no easy climb. Those who complete the quest, however, are rewarded with one of the finest sights in the world - the sunset over the glittering sands, as well as an overview of the world, which stretches forth from the peak in every direction, rushing towards the ever-distant horizon.

I think your kingdom might be better off as its own submission.
If you want to link that submission here, then by all means do so, but this isn't a place for developing entirely new posts; it's more intended to link together other submissions in a useable format. Go to Comment
To the east of the desert sits the mountainous Land of the Yale Riders. To those seekers of the Citadel who come from that direction, the mountains are the last place of hospitality one can expect before facing the dangers yet to come. For those too foolish to enjoy the respite offered by this friendly people, paths have been marked about the mountains.
Though this mountain range rises to great elevations, one can stand at the peak of one of the highest mountains in the range, and still need to gaze upwards to see the top of the Godspire, which serves as an ever-present reminder of their ultimate goal to those who pass through these valleys and heights.
