I also assume that because of his madness he discovered a way (a technique or process) to create items that no sane person would discover. He could probably kick out an item that would take others years, in a week or two. And he did have 800 some odd years to kill. Go to Comment
That is a good point. Other than the round lake where his tower once was (voop), I had not thought of any other impact. I guess the people in this area of the world would be excellent glass blowers and crystal workers. Corvis is not quite in the middle of nowhere, but you can get there from there. Perhaps I better make a land of Corvis. Go to Comment
I thought about the impact this one man could have on a world. Especially given the legacy of the Orbs. I have been tinkering with a world where you would have epic forces in conflict, with Corvis as part of the back story and that Light and Darkness are now in a clash... lead by two orbs.
For those who don't want an epic campaign, Corvus is an excuse for having thousands of magik items spread randomly all over the world. The Voop dispersed magik items everywhere in the world 1300 years ago. Go to Comment
3) He adds versimiltude, as the Great Mage made most of the world's great items. See a magic orb? You know Corvus probably made it. He adds to the history of the world. It is nice to actually know who created the big items.
4) The Orbs themselves are also Power Players in the world. These powerful immortal items have their own agendas. Their presence shapes the world. This can be used directly, or as an example for hower powerful things shape the world. Go to Comment
This is cool, a background character that influnced history. But I wonder, what did he influence beyond just magical items? How is Corvis the area effected by him. Maybe people is Corvis are afraid of Wizards after 800 years of Corvus the Mad. Or maybe they are great dealers of magical items. Myabe Corvis is the center of a mage guild because of the area's connection with wizards. Go to Comment
If you're really into Corvis as a place and you want to explore what you can do with a place that has a history centered in such a dynamic character then you could create Corvis the setting. It could be a nation in a greater world, a peninsula perhaps. Go to Comment
Hm, I think its time I post on this character. He's somewhat legendary around the citadel :P
I love it :D Corvus is the perfect explaination for any item that you just can't think up a background for - I might have to use him in the future ;)
Obviously, he is not a character designed to be played by anyone, and if he is still alive, rarely should he be put in any roleplay - but he can be mentioned many times in any roleplay ^^
5/5, of course. Go to Comment
