I enjoyed this one. Semyon Jesk reminds me of the main mucus-guy from the Mucinex commercials, and Agathae reminded me of Helga from The Oblongs (It might still occasionally run on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim), just mute... and a were-frog. But this was a nice sub. Good work. Go to Comment
As someone who finds amphibians, and espcially toads, to be foul and repulsive in the extreme, being trapped in a filthy inn infested with ravenous were-toads would be my personal idea of hell. I find it interesting that the Jesks possess a trap-door that takes them directly to the vast lake beneath Awangis. Is their condition linked in some way to the mysterious amphibians that dwell in the lake? Go to Comment
I read this one already, and I could have swore that I commented and voted on it. I shall ammend that now. I like this, very creepy, with their large staring eyes, and the whole taste for human flesh is a nice touch, along with the dead troll. How often do people ever find dead trolls? Go to Comment
I really liked this entry and I love were-toads so well done on placement of a frog clan. The descriptions of the NPCs is also well done, the smile alone told me something was up, reminded of League of Gentlemen and the toad keeping relatives
A beautiful variation on the much over done "you come by an inn to spend the night at," encounter most fantasy Gm's run a few hundred times (at least) a campaign. The vignette intro captured my interest, but at first the idea of were toads stuck me as too silly to use in a game.
Then I kept reading, and it grew on me, everything here clicks and fits together smoothly, and has enough background and plausibility in a fantasy setting, and that spark of creativity to really make a suitable microcosm of fun in any fantasy setting.
No matter how jaded your adventuring group they will not see an inn run by were toads coming, making this an adventure location most groups will talk about for years after.
Makes me deeply regret I'm not running a fantasy campaign so I could make use of this one. Go to Comment
Repellent to the eyes, sinister in appearance and far from welcome to the average villager and yet the bards are obssessed with it. Is there any explanation for this? I'm just curious. Thanks. Go to Comment
Nice, i think that is some of the purplest prose I've seen on the citadel! I like the tumble-weed aspect, with clumps of the leaves rolling around, and no one knowing what to do with the plant. Good show! Go to Comment
