Nifty - this could be a very interesting encounter to add when pcs are hunting undead. Little would they suspect this added complication.

With a little adjustment these cursed tools would work well in a Supernatural campaign, especially with the creator being part of a follow up adventure.

A solid 4/5 with an extra .5 for having immediate use to me in my gaming endeavors! Go to Comment

So this was why you asked for names of gravediggers. :)

First, I had to double check what trowels were. I was right, but there remains some uncertainty. Why does a grave digger need a trowel? To flatten the earth? To lay the brickwork in a mausoleum? That could be kinda fun, getting trapped in a mausoleum by terms of knocked unconscious and walled in. It just seems like they're going against their nature by just turning into stabby things.

Man, I really DIG this-- hmmm... no.

Man, those SPADES sure are aces-- hrm.... no quite.

Okay, I tried to be clever but I guess it's time to throw in the trowel.

Well-presented, engaging, darkly humorous. 4.5 and my HOH of the day. Go to Comment

Very evocative and useful far beyond that of flavour, as the lore found in this book could be used as clues for a whole number of things. Like the ten-step pansy (Why are there always trolls on this meadow??), hunting for a specific undead? Just look for the pink flowers!

And the flying rose and the nan's teat could spark some very interesting encounters. :)
Full score from me as well, great to see you back at writing, Muro! Go to Comment

Another well conceived, well-written piece. Plenty of interesting ideas, for casual throwaways in game, or in one or two cases for a story. Go to Comment

Thanks lol This just started as a joke...a dumb barbarian/new pc kept confusing lizard-bulls with bull-lizards. One is huge and nasty, one is tiny and harmless :P Lockwhistle offers a tongue-in-cheek primer for the braincells-challenged.

Another one was going to be a short primer on: How can you tell if the "book" you're holding is an evil magic item, as opposed to a regular book. And so on...

Let me once again address the differences between these often and sometimes tragically confused names, so that needless bloodshed can be avoided by the confused adventurer.

I will just say if forced to pick between the two as adversaries, I would have to think on it for a half-minute but probably take my chances with the big dumb birds.


A gigantic but rather harmless bird. Well, mostly harmless. The truth is it is rather dangerous. It is after all a gigantic bird so caution should be used during encounters. Literally the size of oxen these creatures act in every way as their mundane tiny cousins. Why they exist is anyone's guess. We can only hope this was not yet another one of those "wizard's experiment gone awry", or worse, a "practical joke of the gods." If every one of these (thankfully rare), dive-bombing, cottage-crushing behemoths were exterminated, the world would be a safer place for adventurers.

Unlike their (much) lesser cousins who utilize speed and quick strikes to hunt insects, Ox-swallows seem to rely on their obnoxious strength and brute force to hunt, well, anything that looks edible to their fist-sized soulless, shining-black eyes!


Fearsome chieftain and war-leader of the Tribe of the Great Boast, Swallow-Ox earned her name, and should never be confused with an Ox-Swallow.

This giant of a woman was said to have swallowed an entire roasted ox in a single gulp. The truth of the matter is that she probably ate a whole haunch of ox quickly, or perhaps a huge portion of ox in one sitting, but we will never know for sure. Regardless, this earned her name and eventually her position. Well that and the fact that her ferocity in battle is unmatched, as her skill with the long-axe unrivaled. Swallow-Ox commands four hundred mustached (the women as well), axe and shield wielding berserkers, and should be avoided at all costs. Unless your are planning a war, in which case know that the tribe of the Great Boast are willing mercenaries. Swallow-Ox always demands payment in gold.

Hmm, this would work as a vehicle for introducing various creatures on the site from a different perspective of the current subs.

I don't have a good one to add at the moment, but it certainly has potential!

I found the format used to present this idea appealing- reminds me of the Forgotten Realm books starring a travel novelist as the main protagonist but written a notch better. Maybe you could revisit this and turn it in a proper sub when you have some more snippets along the same lines and then you can change the title to Excerpts rather Excerpt. Or maybe you could turn this into a Wiki if you can't seem to let it go as a stub (Wiki Duo at it again, what is it with me and you together? It's becoming like every second correspondence b/w us involves a Wiki somehow) Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2014-01-14 12:27 AM
Update: Big debates rage among scholars who delve into such minutae, as to whether or not the "creatures" known as the Fata Morganas are Elemental in nature, or came into being from illusionary magics, gone awry.

Fata Morganas are difficult if not impossible to describe. After all,, they appear as whatever they want, and no one has yet managed to produce any Fata Morgana "essence: for study, much less a "corpse".

will occasionally remain as one "projected image" for extended periods of time, thus it is possible for a tribe to dwell on an "illusion" of an island, or for seamen to sail upon the mirage of a ship. Go to Comment
