I love "mythic, maybe one day in a hundred years we, the PC's may meet it" beings.
But this one is a little bit shallow compared to the impact it might have on the PC/world.
It's a good basis though and shows some definite promise. Go to Comment

I may not use this item exactly how it is but the silver body cover and the magical mark on those that are evil are pretty cool ideas.

This item may work well against the Arrow of Personal Hell Go to Comment

....I don't like using angels or angel-related items. The whole Judeo-Christian theme just kind of turns me off. Not that there's anything wrong with it, but I don't think it fits into a fantasy setting. Go to Comment

CaptainPenguin's comment on 2003-12-01 01:59 PM
Yeah.
I mean, the whole concept of "planes" comes from Michael Moorcock and his Elric series (I think). While I'm not saying that Moorcock's ideas were not good, they tend to take away from the "mythical-ness" of the setting.
Still, Pieh, it's a very good item. Go to Comment

Hmm, this sounds like a relic and typicaly the kind of item that your cleric would want to have ;+))

It is fairly powerfull though, so I won't be giving it to my cleric just jet..... Go to Comment

I do not understand the problem with having archrivals like angels and devils in a fantasy setting.

For me it is not very much a Judeo-Christian theme, it is just a name that one gives to a certain kind of creatures. After all, the whole concept of planes gets me in more trouble then is good for me, so following the logic of our dear captain, I should be wary of anything that is called a outsider, be it evil or good....

Alright then, i use "planes" in my campain worlds so it works out. If you dont (im pretty sure thats what your saying Captain) im sure you could come up with an alternate item history to fit in you world, if you want to use it of course.
... And i would think that alternate planes of existance would add more mythical-ness to a campain world, but hey every campain world is different. Go to Comment

I like how it inscribes a rune on victims' foreheads. Many other aspects are sort of standard (although why would an angel need a sword that allows him to sprout angel wings? and how likely is it that a sword for killing demons would think it would be worthwhile to convince a demon to not be evil anymore?)

I have no problem with angels and demons; I'd go a step further and say it's silly to call it Judo-Christian. These appear in hindu and buddhist religions as well, in addition to ancient Persian cultures. Even the Greeks had Daemons. Go to Comment

Well, even Thieve's World (whose religious system was most definitely _not_ Judeo-Christian, God of Rape being a State religion!) has Demons (Snapper Jo, for example).

And personally, I think pseudo Judeo-Christian campaigns (Arthurian for example) done properly can be pretty cool.

As for this item, it does appear rather strongly tied to D20/D&D - but the sprout wings and Rune-marking are interesting. Go to Comment

Strolen's comment on 2003-11-27 06:29 PM
I like the idea but would get rid of the treasure and make it more of a mystery instead of pointing them straight to the forest. Let the PCs be the first to successfully interrogate the crazies and get coherent information. They could use magical means the town doesn't have or the crazies will only talk to strangers or something, anything.

One arrow an hour doesn't set well with me either. Why one an hour? If I was releasing my demon god then I would spare no expense to try and get rid of those that may ruin my plans.

For my game I would instead find a way to give the PCs better protection from the arrows. They could discover what they are and get a protection spell from a cleric (there has to be some other good cult that knows about these Hell dudes and have some protection from them) or something. The arrows are less effective but still do their thing with proper failing saves. So the PCs have more hope fighting them but it is still gut wrenching whenever they get hit and have to save.

I like the idea of using this Hell cult as a growing cult in the world and maybe the shakers behind the evil. I would want to build up the pressure of them to a climax of discovering the ritual and foiling it. I would probably draw the Hell thing out for a long time, slowly introduce it to the compaign with madness slowly building through the country, the occasional conflict with the cult and their arrows until they become true enemies of the PCs culminating perhaps with this plot.

I like the Arrow Of Personl Hell A LOT so would want to draw it out as long as possible. Go to Comment

A lot of unanswered 'whys' and coincidences here, along with a massive escalation from investigating a mystery to a campaign-shaping event. There are neat details and it would a great base to work from.

Pieh, this sub has possibilities of being the stronghold of one of my chief baddies. Going to put it in my Favs for possible alteration and use. Thanks!

I like the idea of a rope appearing: this could be a curse or a benefit. Imagine firing at the Tarrasque or a Balrog and suddenly finding yourself holding its lead... Go to Comment
