Hmm, I wasn't familiar with that story. Interesting.

The "hear me roar" quote is actually from a Helen Reddy song in the 1970's. Go to Comment

This one works for me. They could in many places without an issue. Mostly they are color, but still could be the focus of a submission. Go to Comment

Lovely! A fun band. Quirky and quaint. Great names! Sample tunes and "Entourage" are nice touches as well. Does Bron-Y-Ar Stomp sound anything like the Zep tune? :)

Couatl Jackboots and The Gallant Argosy. Nice. Go to Comment

Yesser - excellent and multipurpose. Add some more hooks and I'll update my vote. The roadies have better hooks so far. Go to Comment

Yeah, I couldn't resist throwing a little Zep in there. There's one other "band" description somewhere that makes heavy reference to the Grateful Dead, so I figured, why not.. Go to Comment

The effect seems minor, but it is quite a potent and useful item! Well targeted too - you even hinted at some limitations, and I like all of that.

I just can't shake off the feeling that a guaranteed source of prophecies won't have some nasty side effects in the long term. The space-time continuum doesn't tolerate stress very well, so using the item too often may yield some nasty surprises. Also, I would think that anyone with power over weather will want to have the globe (and that means very powerful people).

As said, I like it. :) Go to Comment

The write up is a little sparse in terms of details. The description of the item itself uses a lot of "implied" ideas.

The history, was okay. Nothing spectacular, but nothing bad.

It begs the question, why hasn't anyone else made one of these? It is terribly useful and a common need. Is this the innovator who created the enchantment? Is it just one reason why someone would make one? Go to Comment

But they already have The Storm Globe :)

They may not know it exists. Once they do, there will be any number of "relic hunters" and other "aquisition agents" after the item. Go to Comment

This is cool. The clear limitations of the item with the short preview timeframe and the small area observed regulate it to a convenience item rather than an earth shaker.

To make it more generally usable, perhaps it attunes to it's location, with the sculpture within changing over time as it's scale increases.

Attunement Period Radius of Effect
1 Day 300 feet
1 Week 1 Mile
1 Month 3 Miles
1 Year 10 Miles
10 Years 100 Miles
100 Years Kingdom

Perhaps also the preview time could also increase.
This increase of scale is two-edged sword, since the details would be lost and only broad area predictions could be made.

Now, there would be immense vested interest in keeping a globe of this nature stationary, since if it were moved substantially (perhaps 10% or more of its radius) it would begin to attune anew. Go to Comment

If it is not filled with water and insoluble white flakes, then it is not really a snow globe.
On the other hand, I like the thought of a device that can predict the weather without the mage having to cast a spell. I thought your sub was well written, with a clear description, and a good history.
This item is something I can use in my campaign, Good job. Go to Comment

That was just a minor observation. And yes, it works well as a visual aid.. Go to Comment

Well, yeah, I guess you're right, it's not *really* a snow globe. But aren't most magic items something other than they appear to be? I use the term "snow globe" simply so the reader can get an instant visualization of it. Go to Comment

Not sure if it should be two submissions,one for her one for the inn, but I am good for this one.

Nicely done. Has a twist. There are potential plothooks hanging out. *golf clap* Go to Comment

I like this. If the PCs didn't know that she was psychic, it could cause a lot of speculation, and in some groups, paranoia. Good job! Go to Comment

I agree with Moonhunter that this could be two seperate subs. Other than that I like this idea and sub very much and will probably use it at some point. Go to Comment
