I just loved reading these, one after the other, and picturing certain npcs in certain worlds (or Dr. Evil) , saying, "Yes! That's the one!" and "IMMORTALITY is mine!!! Bwa--ha--etc" or "Noooo, do NOT go down THAT path! I've tried it, and look at me NOW!"

This is required reading for evil genius types of every stripe.

That aside, love the petrification one. One of my PCs tried that once a long time ago. Fun times.

Great sub!! (Great name for a sub too!) Go to Comment

Well written and a good wellspring of ideas for Gm's that want to keep an aging/dying PC alive just a little longer.


On a side note the reference to Death playing chess reminded me of this favorite little comic:

A great collection of all the standard ways to cheat death. We've all seen them before, but it's nice to have them all gathered in one place.

Tvtropes.com lists 33 incidences of the chess thing (not counting other games). And it sounds like Omega has seen the Seventh Seal before. Cool!

I'd add Ancestral Memories/Takeover (Assassin's Creed, what was that Penny Arcade fiction called?), being turned into a constellation (mythology), and getting lost in time/space (lots of stuff). Go to Comment

"because it is usually knowledge and practice of forbidden rituals that merited the mummification" except for this strange sentence, a great sub. Go to Comment

A well-rounded list. I think most of those could be the seeds for creating an effective villain. Go to Comment

Food wouldn't be the issue it would be water. Water is the one source that every things "alive" needs. In a non-fantasy setting that is. However, a Namib Desert beetle dwells in one of the most arid areas with only 1.4 cm (0.5 inch) of rain per year, and has developed a unique technique to survive by obtaining water from early morning fogs.

Mother nature will find a way to make an area that shouldn't be lived in livable for something. Go to Comment

This is quite good, though I think you should revise it for length. There are a lot of good details, but the length of the piece defends itself from being read (with apologizes to Winston Churchill).

A nice expansion on the Unummodo sub, I also especially like the ideas Forganthus suggested, I think they would enhance the sub nice and make an even more enjoyable piece.

If you do expand/update this, please send a PM and let me know so I can come back here and re-read the new version/update my vote. :) Go to Comment
