A cute diversion. Let the players see shadows out of the corners of their eyes... make them think something powerful is stalking them. And let them waste their powerful magic on .... a what? Go to Comment

This reminds me of the DnD Bullette, an overwhelmingly silly creature. My munchkins loved it though, because it gave a heavy load of XP and they could LEVEL UP!

Still: I cannot deny that you have done a decent job and your imagination is good. However, this Dune Sandworm replacement does not work for me. It invokes all the wrong imagery in my mind. Go to Comment

I like it, in particular the name. I have a very good visual of the beasts, and a great one of them either coming up during a monsoon or devouring my players. Emphasis on the latter. Go to Comment

I really like the format of this post. It's not completely original, and it's not really long and descriptive. BUT, it says everything important in very few words, wipes its feet before coming inside, and leaves a nice tip after dinner. Go to Comment

I like your description a lot. One question I have...I would think they would like to live near people if that's their favorite food, and hunting strategy (which could be in jungles or cold mountanous regions Go to Comment

Not a bad critter, but I have a problem with natural creatures which specialize in human prey.
A human population providing enough food for a bunch of squirrels to evolve eating them is not very likely - the group would either move away or attempt to exterminate the squirrels. Either would not provide a very stable diet. A magical creation or unique mutation I could believe. Go to Comment

I like these creatures in a way but I also see the issues Val raised. In particular, when you mentioned that these Selvaks fall into a deep slumber after a meal, the first thing that pops into mind is that this is the perfect time for humans to go around and exterminate them. These creatures might have a chance to work, though, in a very out-of-the-way place where human inhabitants are somehow spaced a fair bit apart so that one or two missing persons might not be easily noticed by everyone.

Barbarian Horde's comment on 2005-01-17 08:16 AM
Wonderful

On the face of it just another walking statue, but the back story elevates this well above the mundane - this is no simple monster, but a complex character with strong reason for existence and a believable goal in life.

From a personal viewpoint I prefer the idea that it is solely Eliam’s love that has brought her to life, in a world with a high ambient magical field (or whatever) this is logical and works well - it is also more aesthetically pleasing.

On a more general note, this hints at a world where magic is more complex than a simple (and very boring) weapon system for blowing up dragons, ice demons, and other improbable beasties.

As for use, I wouldn’t allow her as the basis for a PC (being made of stone makes her virtually invulnerable and therefore way too powerful) but she works well as an interesting NPC - there are probable an almost unlimited number of ways she could (probably inadvertently) cause problems for anybody she happens to meet.

Here’s an idea - what if Eliam is long dead (possible since we don’t, and indeed can’t, know how she took to awaken) but somebody now living (perhaps one of the PCs) just happens to look a lot him - let the fun commence Go to Comment

*sigh* Ah, the women... don't move a finger for you, and once you give up, they would chase you through the whole world. ;)


Very nice. Another way of creation may be that a spirit of Stone (or a part of it) resided in the marble piece, and with Eliam's careful work was given another shape, fit for our world. But love and devotion is a great enough reason. ("Latent magics" are the same thing.)


Note:
- does she sleep at all? There seems to be no need; maybe she just spends the night dreaming with eyes open...
- a very neat "disadvantage" of weight. While practically immune to many weapons, she may have problems climbing upstairs, not breaking floors she treads, or getting on ships (but at least, no need to breath).


Final note:
- to add a little to the romance: maybe she is immortal(unaging) until she finds him, or finds out he is dead. Then she would start to age as mortals do. Perhaps even turn to flesh, become a truly living being.
