I like this. It is a nice piece of ecologic color.

It would be fun if the Dragons were one of the species that could eat them. It could be used as the folk explanation for why Dragons breath fire.

It could also be a component for a firebreathing potion used by performers and Dragon Monks. :) Go to Comment

Wow, nice :D Just make sure your character doesnt find these in the middle of a forest and try to cook and eat one.

" granting greatly reduced reaction times"

Is this supposed to be increased reaction times?

Otherwise, an interesting item.

I like it. :) A PC could take a bite of one by mistake if he/she was not careful. Go to Comment

I like it. It is different and somewhat refreshing.

But why is it called Dead Peppers? Does it grow where there is an abundance of the dead? Only grows on the soil of a battlefield soaked in blood perhaps, hence its coloration?

I like Moons idea on the dragon folklore. Gives a perfect tie in with the natural world, or unnatural in a fantasy setting that is. Go to Comment

The Folk (Fae,etc) would have fun with these as well.

Hmmm. What if you were to ferment these babies? Go to Comment

I think that I see a camp of fire-breathing Gypsies in the adventurers' future... Go to Comment

An unique ingredient,, sure to "spice up" an otherwise dull chili cook off.



Like Mourngrymn asked, what is the reason behind it's odd name? Does it perhaps partially fungal based, only growing in the chests of moldy cadavers, eventually replacing the heart?



A refined thick oil from this pepper could also be used by creative adventurers as a coating to make temporary flaming weapons or blanket a floor in fire.

A very interesting sub. I suppose that fermenting them would make some *real* firewater, Valadaar!

One use I can foresee is in the hands of either a suicidally fanatic bunch of elves dedicated to 'restoring nature's glory' to human lands, or possibly a bunch of nature-fanatics who see elves as something unnatural and revel if Twig's ability to render any elf into a tree. Go to Comment

This is a great way to give examples AND give history at the same time.

The weapon is innovative and different from the norm.

Like the idea behind the destruction of the dark moon tower, very inventive. I may be able to change this item slightly and use it for Mojena, perhaps a dagger that creates trees by taking the lifeforce of an animal. Go to Comment

This is a solid elf weapon. The "elf into a tree" is a nice touch. Go to Comment

Interesting...
I'm not a big fan of "campaign-centric" items like this, but it is fairly good...

Kassil's comment on 2004-04-20 03:39 AM
True enough. By world, I /had/ meant the entire thing - the world's star, the world's internal heat, the air, water, minerals, essential living things, etc.

And really, some of the most potent things are the most unassuming. I try to keep that true with what I do. ;) Go to Comment

I like it as well. It has great power, but not the kind that you would readily use or would unbalance a world. It is a great mcguffin for a campaign to be centered about.

An aside: Should we have a category or click box for campaign starter items? Or maybe we should make a list somewhere of them. Go to Comment

Iain's comment on 2004-04-20 03:29 AM
I like it - especially it's small and unassuming appearance. "Oh look, we've found a hard rock." You could imagine it sitting unnoticed on a museum shelf or something. There are so many ways you could base a campaign round it, ranging from just general mythic background to setting a campaign on a world in which the starseed has just been buried.

Another potential use: presumably if you put it inside an ancient star it would rejuvenate it just as it would a planet, thus giving it new billions of years of life. An ancient race whose home planet's star is dying could be searching the universe for the Starseed in order to do this. Go to Comment
