Pretty sweet.
How did the wizards fight off the Kedions? Did they just cast a spell that made them all explode from the inside? Because that would explain the blood.

But anyway, pretty good. I would expand on the Hel aspect of it- how is Hel involved in the whole thing? Go to Comment

"Hordes of Kedion, who wreaked their path of destruction and chaos upon any who happened to be in the way, in pursuit of as yet unclear goals" The Hordes of Kedion the were the PCs weren't they.



"To be especially feared are the vampiric mosquitoes... unless precautions are taken to prevent it." It is best to use blunt weapons against the undead mosquitoes, slashing weapons can wound the beast and there is nothing more dangerous than a wounded mosquito.



"the illustrious Discipline of Safety, a legion of undead soldiers much more powerful than the creatures around them. " Even more powerful than the mosquitoes?! But I imagine it Also illustrious in whose eyes? I mean do the other less undead see the Safety guys marching by with their 'Green Plus Sign' uniforms and Walk/Don't Walk hand signs and just die from envy. But I guess the Discipline of Safety was a prestigious group ...people were just dying to join.



"...are taken into the center of the Moor by well-prepared and brave souls, all of whom must be attired in Gremos heraldic symbols for fear of being attacked on sight" So the undead fluke worms can see...



I don't know what cheka meant by been done before. I mean if every bug that dies in this area comes back than after a few years the sky over the Moor is going be to a sun blocking cloud of undead swarms. Do the higher undead have some sort of society? Cause maybe you could set some sort of up lifting prison drama in this setting, where the witted undead don't escape but they learn to love themselves again.



Anyway, honestly, thought it was ably written and fully realized. Well done sir.

I wasn't that in to the article at post, but it definitely grew on me as I kept reading. The hooks and parting thoughts are what make this stand out to me. The towers are a curiousity, but provide a GM with excuses for virtually any adventure idea. I like the suggestions you give - detailed enough to not be unoriginal, but open enough for flexibility.

A high quality piece that effectively serves its purpose. Good write-up.

Not bad.

I would be interested in ways how to make players play along without revealing the bit about magical charming (most would be likely instantly suspicious). Is it enough to state they somehow like him? Or is it, "he reminds you of an old friend..."?

A small point: there is little system oriented stuff, so we can handle it. (Hopefully ;) ). But it seems the game system had an unnecessary impact on the character's design:
- never learning new magical abilities because of some rules. A much better explanation is that he has largely abandoned this past to a new profession. But at the same time, his magical potential is not wasted - he concentrates on a single spell that gives his life more substance... you may add some bonuses if you see fit, as he specializes on Charm and the covert casting of it.
- the other spells are mostly for colour, ones that he could bother to study again... and he probably won't do so anymore. It is possible he has completely forgotten them over time. Go to Comment

EchoMirage's comment on 2005-07-10 12:53 PM
With that sort of obnoxious personality and rudeness, I doubt that he'd have survived on the streets so long - evoking the ire of anyone he tries to panhandle from, being the prime target at fights and brawls, not admitted into a gang 'cause nobody likes him...

Also, tell me what he will live for after bringing rightful vengeance upon the wrongdoers? What is his motivation besides revenge? As he is written, he cares only about revenge and his order, which in turn is all about revenge. And being mighty. Of course that all DnD PCs want to be mighty. So we can strike this, leaving the revenge as a sole goal.

Not convincing. Go to Comment

Lengthy read, but well written and reads well. Interesting character, puts a more flavorful spin on an old idea--the orphaned character.

For me its the casual use of the Charm Person spell that bothers me. Sure, he needs it due to his downsides, but societies that have access to such magic is going to react to it.

I share Echo's sentiment, the two-weapon fighting and the dislike of giants screams Dungeons and Dragons basic Ranger. The background is rather longer than it needs to be, and there are some funny characters studded in the sub that need to be weeded out. (âfind her wayâ) Go to Comment

So, 'tis the backstory for a ranger with giants for enemies. DnD, I suppose. It's quite one-dimensional but not all too bad.

A note: a morningstar is an extremely stupid weapon in a forest - it gets caught in wines, branches. Think before choosing a weapon just because of its game mechanics. Go to Comment
