"Impress your friends with your wand of wonder clone! Scribble this Glyph on a flat peice of metal and let the choas begin! Great at parties! Be the first on your blck to get one!"

Wand of wonder clone. not original at all.

I want to give you a two because it's well written, but it's just so over done.

Blech.
This sort of item (random effect, what could be better? Wee!) has been done to death.
On the upside, fairly interesting presentation, though one would think that people would come up with something more interesting to represent chaos than shifting colors. Meh. Y'know, just my cantakerousness speaking.

So why would the universe create a run of cosmic power run amok? Rune/ Glyphs have very specific purposes in every mystic tradition that has them... much like letters have specific sounds/ meanings.

This is just a way to create random effect charts for people who just like to mess around and feel powerful?

Besides, if it takes no skill or knowledge to make one of them... the world should be filled with them as traps and such. Don't like someone, slip this on their chair?

It would soon become against the law in most places to inscribe one of these (or have one). Go to Comment

No background whatsoever. No sense or theme to the powers. Go to Comment

Understand that I love glyphs and such, and they are of importance to my setting. They are, to me, what orbs are to Moon (or what I presume orbs are to Moon :)).

Why on earth would anyone create such a glyph? Unless it was the very god of insanity and chaos himself who created this rune, out of some mischievous whim, it seems entirely illogical.

And... Have you read Dragonlance lately? The writhing runes reminded me of when I read about Raistlin, an "evil" twin brother in that series, and when he tried to decipher a tome from another "evil" magician. The runes were silver upon black leather and they were writhing, defying logic and causing him a headache.

Just curious. Go to Comment

Ouch. I was thinking of labelling this as an expansion to a wand of wonder, but decided to tie it in to a campaign theme. Guess not *grin*. Go to Comment

I hate random tables in games, but that is just me, I know some people that love them. This post just got run over by gaming snobs at the corner of dogma and bias. It is okay. Go to Comment

I do thing random items have their place, maybe not in a serious campaign. I've seem some pretty funny episodes come from these types of items (Wand of wonder & Deck of many things).

If there was more to the item then just a list of random effects, I think it would be better received. Go to Comment

Well, I guess I don't really have much to say. The improved version is much better.

3/5, though it really should be a 3.5/5. Go to Comment

There is promise in this. However, it is a common, touch below average post.

Its a "bad guy" with a fairly basic, almost cliche reason for being one.

I do like the semi-mysterious way he got the powers. However, just because he never talks about it... the GM should know how he gained them... so he can build upon it. It is the whole narriator/ GM, reader/pc bit. It is a slight cop out not to explain this.

A little more explanation of Bloodsmithing would be nice for those of us who do not have all those new D20 books.

To make your next set of posts better, might I suggest...
1) Increase the amount of description in the post... help us see, feel, hear, smell, and so on the character and its history.

2) Increase the amount of explanation in the post. This one skates through some important aspects. Remember that you need to explain fully, or imply a great deal, in your write up.

3) Remember to touch on where the character came from, what it is doing now/ recently (in this case... what is he doing while travelling from village to village), and what he will be doing in the future (showing his motivations).

4) Check out some other posts, those that were four and five stars and try to emulate that level of posting.

5) Your work shows promise. Let see an improved version of this post soon AND a new post taking this advice into consideration. Go to Comment

I agree. It is vastly better. Thank you very much for making this post live up to its potential. Now lets see what your next couple posts bring us.

I wish some of the other new members would read this post and understand what we are looking for. Go to Comment

This is pretty interesting - there are some good ideas in here. The name seems to me like naming your cat 'kitty' though - flind being a type of gnoll.

I like the idea of bloodforging - is this a D20 specific element? Go to Comment
