Cattle of the God! I don't think that the Sun God is a very nice person. Your writeup is very well done.

I like it. I am one for the you give and you take away type of rewards. This one definitely has its good and its bad. However I wouldn't have made them completely helpless. Possibly because the mites are out of time, so then is their body so they always seem to move much slower than anyone else. Its not because they are feeble but they are out of sync with time. Perhaps they can even perceive things much faster being out of time sync but can not react to it as quickly. Another painful reminder of their curse of youth.

Once again we learn that the ticket to immortality is not worth the price of admission.  Indeed the only thing meant to live forever seems to a be repackaging of that old chestnut.    



But it seems to be a novel mechanism, and that is hard to come up with since this story has been told from the angry and scared man-child in Gilgamesh to the ennui ridden vampires (the ones that didn't date high school students).

Any interesting concept, but a bit too incapacitating to be useful in a campaign unless it happens to affect an npc the chars care deeply about and begin a quest to find the cure for.



I like Mourn's idea of the mites making the afflicted move slower, since an infected character woudl still be playable, just under the effect of a permnant "slow" spell.

Ick! A real curse for the Fountain of Youth syndrome! The only thing I would change is the Time Mites infecting the body of the nearest living being. A curse that can affect you without you doing anything is a plague, not a curse, imho. 4/5

There is something in particular that bugs me (haha... ha.) Im not sure how the mites work, but I think that might be better explained by why they exist. Is time itself made up of little insects? Are they parasites on time? I'm just having issues wrapping my mind around why they are what they are and why they do what they do.

Set it to Advice Requested until I can sort it out.

I offer this advice to all: Do not post write/post entire submissions after taking sedatives. And... Always listen to EchoMirage.

Echo, I haven't always, but I have come to appreciate your words of wisdom. As biting at they seem at times, I have realized that you always try to speak you mind. And that is commendable.

Remeron, actually. And I wasn't sleep-posting, I was just really zonked out and thought it sounded cool. As far as I know I don't get out of bed and shamble through the streets like my fishy-kin in the Innsmouth night. I will work on this one, I promise. Go to Comment

Actually, just enchanting random rocks means that a human simply cannot sneak past goblins, as a precise ring of blue will flare up around his position.
Improving this spell, it could release flashes of light when humans approach, dulling their eyes to the presence of goblins in the dark.

Withholding vote, this could be so much better. Go to Comment

Were you taking an Ambien when you posted this? An interesting idea though. Go to Comment

A decent Goblinish item, though it really dances around what it actually looks like. Seems more a description of a spell effect than an item. Go to Comment

I think he uses the wysiwyg editor, not the code. Cheka, for bold put < b > in front and < / b > behind the line you want bolded, without spaces. Go to Comment

25-Some gold nuggets



A few nuggets of genuine gold, quarried by slaves in a mountain range long settled by Orcs. No magic, they are what they are and the PCs should be able to turn them into legal money or swap them for something of value with very little trouble.

26-Some beer

This can range all the way from beer that is so good it restores PC hit points, to beer that tastes like rat piss and makes humans ill. If the PCs reject it the Orcs will not be happy. Go to Comment
