Fire wizard named Danius in an Empire of the Petal Throne game in the mid70s. (Yeah, "Danius" isn't very Tsolyani, but heck.) He was a devil-may-care guy who wasn't much into the power politics the DM loved; mostly he just wanted to destroy things, which fed into him being a Vimulha worshiper. Fun times. Go to Comment
thats funny you both mention "short". I am challenged when it comes to that. Always adding more details and information. I actually TRIED making this short and sweet. Wasnt easy, almost went off on an entire Ojjiwa tangent :D Go to Comment
Wow. Just... wow. It's beautifully described, and could be either a legend that the PCs hear, an otherworldly place that they hear about or encounter... or a hotbed of plot points, assuming they can find it. One that occurs to me right off hand is... what if the legend is true, and that once the last whale dies, Mother Ocean will end the world? Maybe the PCs have to protect/reintroduce/save the whales from extinction, in order to save the world... (Shades of Star Trek, yes, I know, but it's a good idea, and one that would work better in a fantasy setting than in the movie.) Go to Comment
Short should never be a problem. A submissions should be as long as it needs to be. That can be 4 lines, that can be 400. As long as the writing gets the point across and answers what you need to know about the subjects, it is long enough.
Remember, long does not ensure perfection or completeness, but it might improve your odds. Go to Comment
Brings up some great images in my head. A great post with many gaming purposes.
I would love to hear about the dream that inspired this. Let's hope Muro has more dreams like this everyone! Go to Comment
Once again Mur, after reading the first submission of yours I have read nothing but impressive stuff.
I wanted to vote 4.5 on this as I am trimming back my 5/5 votes... but I honestly could not bring myself to do it. While I may never use this entire idea, the concept of it being just a rumor that passes at a tavern around a few drinks and a warming fire, or a sailor on a still watered ship... impressive my friend.
