No it counts anyways. It would be nice if you did the Sovereign's Finest and the Grphon Knights. It would also be handy if you explained what you mean by battle magics: Arcanum of the Swords, RQ battle magics, Jedi powers, or something else. Go to Comment
Cool background item that got that .5 boost because I love attention, detail and ordinary-yet-special stuff. Had you added a short historical anecdote and perhaps a plot hook or two, I would have rated it far higher. Go to Comment
It's good, I like it. I think it is a better one than my first post, because it gives you something to build off of. A string of items/people linked together is good, it gives you an idea what the writer was think when they did something.
In a long-lost age, a party of adventurers are frozen into stone by the stare of some gorgon-like creature. An unscrupulous rogue, coming across the frozen party several centuries later, decides to haul off two of the statues to decorate his den. Upon his death, an artisan friend of his claims a statue and sells it to a rich merchant, passing it off as his own work. Years later, the merchant gilds the statue in bronze and re-sells it at a much higher price. After passing through the art markets for many decades, the statue ends up in the hallways of a mage academy. Imagine the chaos and confusion when a young mage's spell happens to break the curse of stone, returning the adventurer to life several centuries after his petrification! Is he interrogated by historians? Driven mad by the change of times? Or does he set off on a quest to find and liberate his other frozen party-members?
