Some good and some bad on this one. He is from a Snake Rider clan who has a bird totem and wears seal and otter pelts and uses darts made of whale bone. 3 out of 5 fit this character. Ditch the Snake Rider bit. Why not the Whale Riders? Two totally different climates. If not and you are hooked on snakes then you need to come up with something to explain away the need to ride tiny snakes from the north. The colder it is, the smaller the snakes you know. Also, where does this famous paralitic poison come from? I'm guessing from some sea creature but it would be an interesting detail. I laughed at the idea of a cormorant being the totem bird of this fierce tribe. There must be some already established history for this in your game world. A mini-pelican like bird isn't the first bird I would jump at when creating a totem creature for a tribe of cold climate coastal dwelling barbarian warriors. It did change from being a Snake rider at the beginning to a Serpent Rider at the end.

Also didn't like the weapon description. Mostly because from what you describe it would not be useable, especially with a crippled leg. It is just too big. Maybe it just needed more description as to how big this Vantu really is. He would have to make Conan look like a dwarf. A weapon that long and with that large of an iron head would pull him over on his face each time it was swung unless he could brace with two legs. Magic involved with this?

Also, nice to have the character background going to childbirth. Is this something that will be public knowledge outside of his tribe? He doesn't seem to have a reputation if it is possible for a stranger to not know about his bad leg if stories of his size and weapon of choice do not identify him.

Quite intriguing. I've been tossing back and forth between a 4/5 and a 5/5 for a couple minutes, but this time, I think its worth a:

5/5

I'm glad you like it guys!I thought it might be intereseting to create a kind of magic unqiue to a certain race reknown for it's wisdom.I settled on the Uluun which seemed to fulfill that requirement.You can learn more about them under the ''Races of Tarrod'' section in the Eshal thread.

To aswwer your question,the Uluun are a very deeply philosopical people that don't crave power the way most other beings do.This is why they would rather teach inferior races than rule them.The post on Uluun should explain everything. Go to Comment

Ancient Gamer's comment on 2004-12-12 06:08 AM
First and foremost: I really, really like the idea Maggot! I think I have to plunge into the Eshal thread and see what it is all about! It'll be my little Christmas project. (Along with the other 4 settings currently in development)

One question does come to mind: "If they have these amazing and powerful abilities, how come they aren't all powerful rulers?"

I am also suspended somewhere between a 4 and a 5, closer to 5 actually. So I let ShadowEagle's vote count for the both of us ;) Go to Comment

Hmm, this is neat. Imagine if one of these held a secret you wanted, but would not impart to you willingly. You could wait, a looong time.

You need to link the Uluun to this one.

Ruha Goo

Strolen's comment on 2012-03-24 12:38 PM


The more often it is used, the more of the goo is needed to get the same effects yet the recovery and exhaustion effects are greatly increased. 



Additionally, after the initial exhaustion wears off, the goo could have an addictive nature that results in mored days of sweats and extreme weakness that lasts longer than the initial recovery. That would make the goo a dangerous thing to use unless they have enough quantities to keep those that use it going and are relatively sure of the safety for the two recovery periods.

A nice item, usable even for non-amphibian races, but still harder for them to get.

A solid 3/5. Go to Comment

I would bet it would smell quite foul also. It would likely be hard to hide the fact that a said character uses the ruha goo. In more rare cases, the goo might attract ruha slugs, if there is one in the area. Just and idea.

A solid item.

Other side effects could include exhaustion after use, and general emaciation - while it could reduce appetite, it makes the body spend far more energy than usually.

Perhaps if its also a neuro-toxin, the user feels a sense of invincibility. It benifits the Ruha this way to. Go to Comment

Barbarian Horde's comment on 2004-12-21 12:49 AM
I was feeling a lot of themes from the Song of Fire and Ice by George RR Martin. Courts of deception and political games. King getting killed while out on a wild boar hunt. The person rising to the throne not really the direct descendant of the King. Etc. I got the same feelings while reading an earlier submission about a Drow named Drizzt who is good instead of evil and lives in the Forgotten Realms and wields two swords at once and falls in love with a party member... It doesn't feel like you developed this character from your own original ideas. Go to Comment
