I was looking for a good dungeon to use as a search for information..

And this covers it! NICE JOB! 5 stars! :)

I totally missed the demon bit.. Holy cow this fits perfectly into my current adventure/plot line.

This IS actually funny! And very feasible. And original, as mentioned.

(Aside: and you know, with some work could this be turned into a 'troll bar' scenario for us fantasy-ists.)


Great submission, DLM. You made me smirk through the whole thing.You made me smirk through the whole thing. Go to Comment

I LOVE IT, SERIOUSLY, I LOVE IT.
It's simultaneously funny, cool, and very original, and I'm definitely gonna' work it into my next sci-fi style game somehow. Two thumbs up. Go to Comment

I wasn't overwhelmed when I started reading, but by the time that I reached the dance competition, I was impressed. You found an original way to approach the "tough bar full of tough guys" meme, and for that I congratulate you.

At last, I have a way to punish the player I have that invariably takes "Perform: Dance" as one of his skills and breaks into a jig at the slightest provocation. Go to Comment

Or maybe if several reach maturity they'll all collaborate to seize the throne. Go to Comment

Whoa. Now this is a mind-blowing plot. Kudos for thinking of such a story.


You can bet the king won't be loved, the more babies he has killed, the more precarious will be his situation. You can expect people to flee his kingdom, and others scheming to overthrow him. Those, who know of the curse (and that knowledge will spread), will have some hard choices indeed. Go to Comment

Wow, I really like this. Definitely gets the "Wish I'd Thought of That" award. So much possibility for havoc, so much fun. Intrigue and madness with a pretty nifty twist. I'm going to have to find a way to use it, I think.

It's entirely possible as a Nemithia grows to maturity, fewer new ones will be born. After all, she's interested in the throne, not in competing with herself. I also have to wonder... did she arrange for her husband to become king? Go to Comment

An incredible piece with a great deal of detail. It has history. It has drama. It has dozens of ways to be plugged into a campaign. A truly worthy piece. Go to Comment

As a strong proponent of the Princess freetext, this submission just blows me away. I like the mechanics behind how the similar births and and slow change to a similar form is explained, as well as the social responce to the king getting batty and kill-happy. Very well done! Go to Comment

EchoMirage's comment on 2008-10-02 08:37 AM
I am impressed - this is a memorable piece, and creepy to the extreme. With multiple Nemithias, I can see the stronger killing the weaker ones, in true highlander fashion, to absorb the power within them.

I have to use this someday. Won-der-ful! Go to Comment

The King is not going to be popular with the people. What happens if a general's wife has a Nemithia? Go to Comment

Dragon Lord's comment on 2009-01-26 11:03 AM
Egads, this is simply brilliant - how did I ever miss it???

Here is a kingdom just begging for a rebellion - let's face it, no population, however loyal, is going to stand for this kind of oppression indefinately

After all, killing all the girl children before their second birthday is something no realm can stand for long

This king is most definately going to lose his throne sooner or later - and, unless he's really careful, probably his head as well

Think I'm wrong?
The French revolution and teh English civil war both started over less

So, rebellion and civil war are comming. Under these circumstances it's probably unavoidable and everybody, including the PCs, are going to have to choose a side.

There's a whole campaign arc here

Great stuff DLM
