One thing I wonder is this - if the swamps are so difficult to pass through, and the island is fertile enough to grow food on (clearly not a rocky outcropping), where do the monks get their metal from in sufficient amounts for some of these listed things, like the gate and such? Do you arrive, tell them what you want, and they send you to fetch supplies? Do they have a secret mine? Does their god provide the metal? Go to Comment
Bump, a joyful place for PCs to visit. I can picture an adventuring band sitting around a campfire, several days still away from the swamp, feverishly sketching ideas to present to the monks. Go to Comment
People are always dragging my first subs back up from the past. About time I return the favor to someone. :)
Fun one though. I always enjoy these kind of race targeted things. Continues to allow magic weapons to have that unknown to them making the PCs always nervous to be the first one to try a 'new' magic weapon they come across. Go to Comment
Yes, thank you very much.
How could you think it's awful?
The only thing I have to remark on is that the backstory for the item is fairly bland, but that can be remedied.
Hope to see more from you, dude! Go to Comment
A cult's theology is binding on the god involved: it is possible for that god to believe (and see, just like Winston Smith in 1984) that other gods are mythical, or jumped-up demons, or failing older spirits, even while those gods actually exist and thrive and act in the cosmos, even while working against him.
