i read this article because i wanted to learn some new methods, and you guys are truly devious, which i enjoy. so i had a cruel idea that twists some areas of thought. bind victim in an iron ring, similar to the russian implement of torture "the street sweepers daughter".  next, you take a needle, with a small broadhead , similar to a bowhunting shaft, but only an inch and a half from tip to tip, in a cross pattern. put string attached to the other end, maybe 4 feet of string, and start the torture. weave the needle into the victims flesh, all over their bodies making sure to make maybe three or four passes on their genitals, but no more. and weave the needle and string all over ther body. once done with the weave, pull the other end of the string so as to rip out the needle with the head of it ripping through the flesh, making it bleed a little bit. salt the wounds, and then let them recuperate for a time to let the injuries heal. wash, rinse repeat. they will not die from it unless you put the needle too deep. truly heinous.

How disturbing and thought provoking. In a recent post, I asked how "disturbed" the Strolenites were, and I was referred here to find my answer. Pain is a sad form of torture when death is already assured. The ultimate torture is the play with hope. Take any of the tortures listed above and before the victim dies, knock them unconscious. Then have the victim wake up to a sweet, loving, and beautiful woman who will nurse him back to health and give him all the love and kindness he could wish for. After he has recovered, drug him, and let his hopes shatter as he wakes up to the same unbearable tortures that he thought had killed him and sent him to heaven. No one can truly appreciate how bad their life can get unless they have fully experienced how good their life can get. Go to Comment

Head Crusher: A torture favored by the Spanish Inquisition, it involved the victim's chin being placed on a bar, with a cap over the head. The cap would be slowly lowered by means of a screw, compressing the head. Some versions of this device had places to store the eyes, once they popped out. Go to Comment

Tub: In this one, a victim is put in a wood tub. Only his head would be sticking out. His face would then be coated in milk and honey, and he would be fed regularly. The victim's face would be swarmed by flies. Soon, the tube would be filled with the victim's feces. The flies would lay eggs in the feces, the resulting maggots and worms would eat. They would eat both feces and the victim. One victim stayed alive for 17 days. Such people decayed alive. Go to Comment

Emperor Tiberius of Rome had a habit. Yes, its grisly. What he did was sew young men's urethras shut. Before I get into what makes this bad, a quick biology lesson. The urethra is the chute in the body that carries the urine from the bladder, to the penis, and out. What Tiberius did next, which mad this bad, was force-fed them wine Go to Comment

Ashes: The Persians would stick people into a room full of ashes. They lived as long as they could stand. Eventually, they'd fall, and breathe in the ashes. They would then die from slow suffocation Go to Comment

I do believe something similar is up above, but, well...

bTreadmill with Hot Metal Sheet:b/ You have a treadmill, or some such device like that. You put a metal sheet behind it, and put walls to either side. The metal sheet is kept hot. Burn your skin off if you touch it hot. Very painful hot. The person walks along on the treadmill until he is slowly burnt to death on the sheet. Go to Comment

This character has a truly useful game function. It's presentation is unique. Once you put titles on all those rumor links, it will be great. :)

At first, I was unimpressed with Kaboo (Kaboo? Kaboo!?) seeing him as the stereotype of the old man playing checkers in front of the gas station. I guess living in Appalachia has inured me to the charm of such things. It wasnt until I clicked on the text links, leading to the singing manticore that I cracked a smile. I like this sort of character in a game, though I think that Dimwitt, and Kaboo's name detract from the post. Go to Comment

Yeah, about that. The rumor texts are the actual "meat". This Kaboo & Co. npc entry is just the bones. I first did the rumors off-the-cuff, then added this submission the next day. Kaboo is actually named after my friend, drumroll...Kabu (he's nosy). I guess this troika could have had better names though :) Wait! hold the phone Scras! I just recalled a certain archmage named "RICHBUTBUSY"!! from the Auchinduin Mine :)

Thanks to MoonHunter for all his (still ongoing) technical help and support! The rumor links now have titles! Go to Comment

4.0/5

Neat work Muro!

The Special Equipment quip sticks out like a sore thumb though.

Oh. I like this one. I really do. There needs to be more stuff like this in game worlds. It's not just the massively uber fighters-for-good and scions-of-ultimate darkness that make and leave behind magical items. Ambitious (and possibly nymphomaniacal) madames consorting with demons (I hesitate to ask, but I feel I must: what kind of demon was Poggodin of the Three Tounges?) have their toys too. Assuming one could get the box open (maybe another madame could open without much problem?) there would be all kinds of fun to be had. Everything could be sold (although I have gamed with at least one player who would have kept the hairpin). This is soo unique, and since I can't really think of anything that needs to be fixed... 5/5. I WILL be using this at some point. Go to Comment

All and all a great submission. It has history, details, and is artistically done. What more can we normally ask for? Go to Comment

An interesting set of wards, indeed.

I'm guessing the lady also enjoyed her job, from the usefulness of the hairpin to her. Go to Comment
