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...

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

Fata Morgana
Lifeforms  (Ethereal)   (Any)
Murometz's comment on 2014-01-13 11:27 PM
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

He should have been called Oporr the Mad or perhaps some derogatory term or sobriquet like The Kin Slayer, or something like that. I like the idea, and rarely are dwarves described as fecund and having many children. I like. Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2012-10-20 10:29 AM
I figured that for dwarves, "the lame" already carries a strong negative connotation. Spartan-esque thinking. Born lame, he was probably a useless warrior and smith. He could not "work". What could he turn to, but evil?

Also, I did a piss-poor job describing these knives. Or at least describing the idea in my head. These knives are supposed to be reason that dwarves are in fact no longer fecund. I think I left this a stub because I didn't do a good job transferring this from the brain to the page. Go to Comment

Yes, a bit of Norse myth served as inspiration (that and encountering Ted in chat 3am in the morning).

Yep, you make sense. Aunt not mom, and don't take control of PCs! :) Go to Comment

Pretty darn good. I sense a little of Loki in his earlier days in many of these "mysteries". It could also be a faerie of some kind as well. However, since you can take these many different ways... they are totally useful. Nicely done. Go to Comment

Dossta's comment on 2012-10-05 10:41 AM
I love this kind of sub -- the grab-bag of adventure seeds that a GM can really take off and run with. There are a few which could use tweaking; 16 forces a PC to act in a particular manner and takes the control of that character out of the player's hands, while 48 could really mess with someone's lovingly crafted backstory. Why not make the person in 48 a PC's "godmother" or "aunt"? As for the shield . . . I'd make it so that an animal companion goes missing or an NPC companion is the one tranced out while looking at it. Maybe. You guys could probably think of something better to do with it.

All in all, these are just minor nitpicks on an otherwise fantastic sub. I would love to use these the next time I game. 5/5 Go to Comment

What a fun collection. If I ever get some games going again I can see using some of these as plot seeds and others as just plain evil ways to mess with the PCs. Go to Comment
