The Hammers of Rot

A great hit with champions of the undead and the not-quite-so-living. The hammers of Rot are an interesting weapon to wield and positively deadly to face. A hit from one of these weapons will transform the struck area into dead flesh or will strip it of its flesh depending on how injured the opponent is. The more damage an opponent takes the more he prematurely decomposes. These weapons are mainly found in the arsenals of undead champions, or are perhaps held by a necromancer who prefers to fight instead of wasting time and energy summoning the dead. It isn't that rarely that one can also be found in the possesion of a military commander or officer as well as with the undead.

As with every weapon of this sort however there is a downside, which in this case just happens to be that the more the wielder uses the weapon the more he gradually begins to look like a cadaver, and in time, perhaps over a period of years he becomes indistinguishable form a real cadaver.

Today very few of these weapons remain most having been found by paladins and other holy and righteous orders and destroyed. But they will come back to the surface every now and then, occasionally in the hands of the demented and oft insane. Go to Comment

A question mark of a place... not bad. It could make for an interesting trek, and an adventure or two.


Edit: Oh, and the quote makes an excellent summary. :) Go to Comment

Interesting place, sorta Amazon-y with the healing plants and I like the conflict with the gnolls and the ogres. Go to Comment

Fun! For all the little things mentioned above that adds so much to the character. Definitely a villian in the eyes of the kingdom he attacks but his ability to be both give a great depth and useability to him!

My favorite extra is his lack of solid communication skills. I am sure he can get his point across to those that don't know the slave language, but I see some players hired to scout him out, come upon one of his grutteral speeches that would probably sound like stirring the horde into a murdering frenzy vs. him really chanting about freeing fellow slaves under the unjust mishandling of the cruel slave masters.

Echo loves the bit about the helmet, and the slave-speak, and all of Kharz. The bit about the lines in his face is excellent.

(*smile* I once had a rebellious slave minotaur in one of my games. The moment he snapped, an overseer was yelling at him and whipping while he carried a huge building block. Kamargh, for that was his name, simply dropped the block and walked away) Go to Comment

Ouroboros's comment on 2008-07-14 08:40 PM
Oh, yes. I really like this one.

Favourite bits:

Helmet stamped flat and worn as an amulet - Damn, wish I coulda come up with that.. That is so good!

Crude slave language lacking small talk - Nice, very nice..

Beating someone to death with a wheelbarrow - Imaginative, although slightly worrying...

Good job!

It really fleshes out the "I rolled a 4, I hate Orcs" concept that happens in many games. Good post that shows that even a typical history can have some flair. Go to Comment

Its well written, but there is little to make me want to use her in a game. The whole killed my whole family now I hate all orcs is a little overdone. Too many quick PC backgrounds can be boiled down to the same idea. Also, you aluded to 'what she has become'. I think she needs to become something worse to be more interesting. Go to Comment

She exists mostly to show just that even an otherwise bland character (In D&D terms, a level 1 ranger, weaponsmithing skill, favored enemy orcs) can be interesting if just fleshed out. Take from it what you will. Go to Comment

One of the PCs comes across a magical ring that grants some power but has odd aura as if cursed. Yet this curse is different than the standard curse. When the PC puts on the ring he/she suddenly feels married. There is now an illusionary woman, who he/she cares deeply for but who is also always very critical of the PC. The wife is demanding of attention and constantly giving the PC directions. The PC wearing the ring is the only one that can see and hear the bride. The curse can never completely be lifted. Even if the PC takes off the ring and somebody else puts the ring on; the PC will still be visited by the ex-wife at least once a month. During this visit she will demand money and apologies.
