That's a really good roleplaying use. I hadn't thought of that.
Another idea: the PCs are imprisoned, and the next room over is a man who is one day away from turning into an Awakened. After he converts, he spends a night whispering at the PCs before breaking out of his cell.
And yeah, 3-4 weeks does seem short. Feel free to adjust it in your campaign if you ever use this. I only wrote 3-4 weeks because that seemed like the minimum, and the shorter onset times were more menacing. Go to Comment
I love these two subs. Both are well-written, and make a very difficult subject (that we all seem to love the concept of) accessible and usable to average GMs. I love that you include lots of solid examples of ways that these concepts can be used.
I was waiting for this! Probably the best part (to me anyway) was the talk about manifolds. The difference between global and local properties is a very important topic in topology, and you can come up with some pretty crazy stuff. I'm tempted to create a dungeon that is a double torus or a Klein bottle or such, simply because of this submission. Bravo, very well done. Go to Comment
Not much to add, here. Possibly more usable than the first part of this series -- I enjoyed the pictures and examples. Playing with gravity would be quite fun, too. Imagine walking across a room and suddenly falling towards the right wall! Go to Comment
The 1973 classic "Blacula" was on the other night. The title reminds, naturally, of that film.
They sound almost comical in appearance to me, begging for blood with their sideways, toothy smiles. Basically a humanoid hagfish vampire. I don't think anyone's made quite that combination before, so kudos to you. Go to Comment
