I like it... a sound elemental (sort of). I don't know why they would drive players away if they feed off of their heat. A lot of things in this bizarre things codex seem to feed from heat. What if they fed off of sound? The players would all be muted or silenced? And the echoes would try to keep characters IN the valley, by making noises and vibrations worse if they try to exit. The echoes try to bring people in to make noises to feed them. Go to Comment

Wow! I didn't see this one, until Cheka just voted on it. Regardless of the sound and heat science involved, it's great! And the first time my players hear that sound (if I get it just right) they will freak!

Thanks for the instant encounter for next session!! Go to Comment

I've always liked this one. Its that spooky, perverted sound I guess. Nice scenario, a hidden sound elemental! Go to Comment

I like it. The idea of a sound elemental is great. Go to Comment

How would they react to explosions (such as fireballs and the like?) we have both heat (which they like), and sound (depending on your take on Fireball and similar spells - Boom vs Woof!). Go to Comment

If something had a fitting size (remember the hobbit rogue cliche), it could camouflage as an Observer. May work, may not. Go to Comment

Players seem so convinced that things have a purpose sometimes!

All so true...

Is does sound a little cartoonish, but if they were actually constructs, or aspects of a god or powerful wizard they become less cartoonish and more fantastical.
They are constructs... from a God, an Alien Probe, or some wizard... nobody knows the reasons. Go to Comment

Great idea though the description is so-so. These creatures sound too cartoonish for my taste, but in another wrapping they would be a pure 5.0
Very, very good MoonHunter. Go to Comment

I love these guys! I loved Element Master. We had one follow our group until people started crouching to take cover behind Guppy, because he was invunerable.

The next one could go desolid. Imagine our suprise when that trick did not work again. Go to Comment

I can imagine a whole day long session of the PCs poking and prodding one of these trying to figure out what's going on. Players seem so convinced that things have a purpose sometimes! Is does sound a little cartoonish, but if they were actually constructs, or aspects of a god or powerful wizard they become less cartoonish and more fantastical. Something is watching and observing, you can't shake it, you can't hurt it, and it never takes any action. Go to Comment

Ouch, I hit a vein of sketchy MH ideas transferred from V1. I like most of these, but this is YET another partially finished post. Needs more work. Go to Comment

It is pretty minimalist post, but I like the idea. I remember the rust monster from D&D long ago (I actually found a plastic rust monster toy in my sandbox when i moved into a new house when i was 4!). Anything to take away the players' treasure. If your party gets too rich, an enemy could easily obtain a few of these and make them quite sad. But this makes me wonder how much could they eat? Given enough time, a lot right, but that makes me wonder (i'm serious).. what comes out the other end? I mean, the PCs come back to a vault with no gold, but full of... what? How does on digest gold? Or does it come out ionized (like a gold ion salt solution). Go to Comment

Kind of nifty. A little bare bones, though. Are the hosts aware of what's going on, like they can see themselves doing something, they just can't stop, or does the thing interrupt their consciousness? Do the hosts remember what went on after the goo leaves, assuming they're still alive? Does the goo do permanent damage? Once they take control of a host, do they know how to replicate human behavior sufficiently to pull the deception off, or is it obvious something isn't right? They percieve electrical impulses, magnetic waves, and vibrations. Could a big enough disharge (lightning, HUGE sound blast) harm or disrupt them? Go to Comment

This would probably be based on the skills and the need of the Black One. Manipulating the mind of the subject takes time and effort. Perhaps if they grab someone while they are asleep, and keep them asleep while they are using the body. Maybe they neutralize the mind, triggering any number of biochemcials.


Do the hosts remember what went on after the goo leaves, assuming they're still alive?

See above.

Does the goo do permanent damage?
It does not have to. It is really based on their actions. If they are careful, then no. If they are not careful, they might ignore diabetes or some other issue, so cause damamge. Perhaps they will "over use" a body to meet their needs. Thus burning the host out.


Once they take control of a host, do they know how to replicate human behavior sufficiently to pull the deception off, or is it obvious something isn't right?

Most probably can do a good job, if they have been here for a little while. Duplicate a specific person well... that could take some time and effort.

They percieve electrical impulses, magnetic waves, and vibrations. Could a big enough disharge (lightning, HUGE sound blast) harm or disrupt them?

It would probably dazzle their senses for a little while. An EMP pulse might actually do true harm to them. Go to Comment
