I would definitely say yes.

The mental damage persists only as long as the headband itself is on. When the wearer removes it, it clears away like a mental fog lifting, usually to the great embarassment of the wearer. Go to Comment

Talislanta is quite a unique setting. ;) I find that I dearly love the rule system, and particularly the way they handle magic. No more "I should've memorized (spell)!" as long as a reasonably reative person is playing the mage. Go to Comment

No Elves, indeed. Alas, it currently happens to be languishing horribly in the hands of the current company, suffering horribly from poor proof-reading and an utter lack of communication with fans. While I love the copy of the Big Blue Book that I own, I am sorely disappointed by the fifth edition of the game.

That said, the system itself is well-designed, and the setting is wonderfully unique. It's just a shame that the current producer is having difficulties with it. Go to Comment

I think this is the first Talislanta item the site has ever had. Not that it can not be adapted to other systems and worlds, but it is a first. Go to Comment

Interesting-does the mental damage regenerate if the user survives? Go to Comment

I like this item, and not knowing anything about Talislanta (apart from No Elves, right? :)) I saw nothing game-specific about it.

Good Job! Go to Comment

Um.

Er.

I simply can't imagine the first one to try this.

"What did you make Urk."
"I dunno."
"I bet you your toenails that Mikey would eat it."
"You are on."

What an explosive idea! :)

Goes well with the image of critters and cannon fodder - they need ways to survive the harsh persecution by other races... and sometimes it means to sacrifice a few of them. Go to Comment

Goblin suicide bombers, indeed. And more, if a tribe was known for explosive tendencies (and, no doubt, breeding like rabbits) when cut, the sightof one holding a dagger to his own throat would likely be enough to set off panic attacks in any locals. Go to Comment

There's no need to use magic; there are a fair number of substances that can combust on contact with others - in this case, it combusts on contact with something in the air. Go to Comment

Honestly, long after making this, my guess would be that the key component is the mixture of oxidized goblin blood and stomach acid; the other stuff is merely superstition on the part of the goblin witch doctor and alchemists. Mind you, this stuff can /only/ exist like this in a high fantasy world with a fair tolerance of absurdity.

Fireblood Elixir would likely be a less absurd way consideration of the Potion. Go to Comment

Goblin bombs, yes. I am less pleased by this entry these days. The explanation behind it is lacking. Go to Comment

If they're Kuramen goblins, the first one to try it was either the inventor, who was convinced that THIS batch would do what he wanted, or else it was someone or something chained to a table in a medical lab as a 'test subject'. Go to Comment

I see the Fireblood Elixir as a somewhat more logical and less inexplicable version of this potion. Go to Comment

Goblin Bombs. Woohoo! I like the stink factor. It is a good self deception for the humans and other races. Go to Comment

It's a very unique and origonal idea for a roleplaying setting, and I give you tons of props for that. However, the ending explanation felt a little rushed. Isn't it a little unrealistic that spider venom and goblin blood would make someone explosively sensitive to impact? I can imagine the formation of flammable gases, but for an explosion, you need not only that, but fire. Where does the fire come from?

I think this would work better if the explosion was less "James Bond Shoots a Tanker"-like, and more of a "hard" explosion. Hmmm...ok, I'm being really specific here...but if you could just hear me out - Instead of a huge fireball, think more of a huge bang and a shockwave of air. Nothing fantastic to look at from across a field, but still deadly as heck for anyone nearby.

That, or you could just use magic to explain the fireball. Anyway, despite my nitpicking, I thought it was overall good work! Go to Comment
