Thanks, I'm glad you liked it.

You bring up some good points that I would like to address:

They were not originally villains, no. But years of being cursed have driven them mad. Are they victims? Certainly. But for all intents and purposes, they act like villains. They kill to keep themselves whole with no differentiation between innocence or guilt. They kill because they are insane and hate the living. For me, that defines a villain no matter how it happened. Tragic, yes, which I think makes the tale more pressing.

I don't think there is anything inherently wrong with them being treated only as tactical challenges. But I also don't think that that is all they are good for. Understanding their history might make characters sympathetic to their plight; working to release the knights' souls would make for a far different campaign than just defeating them and making sure the armor is good and buried once again.

I would chalk Ugreid's actions up to capriciousness. Mortals are fools to live and die by his whim. I imagined he laughed as the once-noble knights turned upon the priests they once swore allegiance to. And then he would foment outrage against the knights for their cruelty, placing them even further from their noble beginnings.

As far as replacing armor, I would go with the buddy system (I like Echo's description.) Go to Comment

That's one of those details I think are better left up to the GM and how this is being adapted to the particular game. You could make it a sizable army, putting a clock on things; the longer they take to be stopped from amassing, the more powerful they become. Want something on a smaller scale to fit into some other storyline? Make it a few dozen or less. Maybe they can only find a few and the rest are too well hidden. Go to Comment

I like the idea of undead armor running around slaughtering armies. What I would like to know is the numbers involved. How much armor is out there? If there's a lot, it would take a while for that thief who put on the armor to put it all together. Go to Comment

I like it! I almost asked for more but I am not sure what I would ask for. The core idea is solid and would be fun to play. Since there is no huge affect on the world it is rather benign and more like a novelty...a really awesome novelty. Just one of those awesome things you come across that continues to puzzle you way after the experience. Go to Comment

Reminiscent of Tanelorn for some reason (in a good way)! I'm going to use this as a legend in an upcoming campaign. The Three Ghost Cities. Except I'm renaming them Dawn, Dusk, and Noon (Ha! You thought I'd say Midnight).



Anyway, the idea piques (is that a word?) the imagination, but I wish to know more. More! Especially the esoteric bits.



As is, great stub or in-work, on its way to more.

I didn't actually want to write this one but it kept pestering me while I was working on The Lost Imperial City. I finally promised that I would at least do a short writeup if it would leave me alone until I was finished. So, I'm not really sure where to go with it. Any ideas are welcome.

I'm not familiar with Tanelorn. I was inspired by Ultima III (oh, maybe just a few years ago...) Go to Comment

Very interesting follow-up post. I can totally understand the struggles of pushing out an adventure and the want to just be done with it, but I still have to agree with Scras that it falls a little short of the original. I guess it feels a little too hopeless at times (such as the snakes) and too ... Can't think of a word for it, but the problem being that it relies of NPCs surviving, and ones that don't have a very good chance of it at that, to complete the adventure. All of the information to be gained is presented in NPC-reliant format, with Godfrey's visions, then the wizard's knowledge that they won't pass on. I wouldn't want to be a player in this adventure, as I would feel lacking compared to the NPCs.

Interesting, but somehow it falls short of its companion submission. Still, well done.

Really good indeed. I love your atmospheric descriptions, I love the 5 room set-up(have never attempted it myself though) and I enjoyed the plot. 



Good job MysticMoon!

I enjoyed this adventure, and can appreciate the work that went into the atmospheric descriptions.  It nicely complements your other quest submission.  I will, however, agree with Pieh about the hopelessness for the PCs at certain parts.  The snakes, especially, are a difficult conundrum, and I would probably omit them if I were going to run this.

Is there anything specific you feel could be improved upon? I really struggled with this one and only posted it when I felt I'd done as well as I could (plus I could barely stand to look at the thing by then.)

Adventure design is not one of my strengths and I'm open to any feedback that could help me to improve. Go to Comment

Some good food for thought. I will go back through this from the perspective of the PCs and see if I can make improvements. Go to Comment
