I wouldn't say we don't like stats at all. They can be useful in understanding the properties of an item, if used properly. Don't get discouraged, it's just a site policy (That I think some are overly zealous about) to remain system-neutral and try to make submissions able to fit into anyone's game. All in all, very nice first post. Keep them coming. Go to Comment

Yep, we are a stats-free site, but you can always put into words what the effects are.

I like the item. Protection for the gore-hound :) and nice quirks on the potential drawbacks. Go to Comment

I like it, too. It would be useful to have when running around dungeons and mysterious ruins. Just hope you don't run into a pack of undead. I think that a character may be well-advised to not charge it until the first creature killed outside of town, to avoid getting suspicious glances from the constabulary.



 Which brings me to a question: Does the Blood Cloak always have the same amount of blood dripping from it? Or would it gradually lose liquid as the charge is used up? For instance, if you've almost run out of stored blood, might you only appear as some sort of crazed murderer with a few splatters?



 Bonus points for providing a cursed equivalent.

Nice idea, developed well enough to be useful and with some nice hints about expansion. I know a few players who would really enjoy this.

Could you put the coat on pigs and then slaughter them to charge it?

Neat item

Now, there are few grammar issues you might want to clear up.

"When the wearer takes damage from a piercing, slashing, or hacking weapons the number of hitpoints the wearer loses are added to the cloak's hitpoints as long as that does not take the cloak above it's maximum (providing the wearer does have blood sorry warforged etc.)."

I'd break that into a couple of sentences with one specifically intended to screen out beings without blood. The provision there simply does not fit as part of the current sentence.

Just so I don't mess this up again in the future... What was wrong with the stats? Thanks. Go to Comment

Obviously, feel free to tailor to your uses. Here's what I had in mind: When it's fully charged, the wearer looks like they just went for a bath in a river of blood. As it looses charges, the points of impact are 'dried' and become the original brown color. So yes, I agree with your statement that the wearer of a slightly charged blood cloak would look like a crazed murderer with just a few splatters. If the wearer receives a cut, his own blood makes a big red spot on the cloak at the point of the hit just like blood would spread in normal clothes.

Thanks for the comment. After all these years you wonder if anyone looks at your old submissions anymore. Go to Comment

While travelling near the edge of a forest the air is filled with the wailing of battle horns. Soon a large group of mounted cavalry will gallop by in a panicked rush. Some will spot the party and shout "Flee! Flee for your very lives!"

Several minutes later, hundreds of running infantrymen will be spotted. A large group of white clad knights fiercely chanting a battle song is in full pursuit. One of the white knights carries a banner of a white horse on a black background. The horse is rearing under a gold crown, indicating the presence of the Paladin Prince. As the horrified infantrymen struggle to flee into the forest, the zealots charge into their midst and cut them down by the tens and hundreds.
