Father Titus, Resurrection Man

Father Titus is an interesting fellow. Though I personally would like to know more about his origins (how he got that sword, for example, for I presume such relics are not standard issue), as well as how he got a angelic companion to go hunt some undead with, I presume that this is intentional to create a mysterious guy that kills vampires for a living.

He seems to me to be a tad weak, though. In a world where the vampire- and if its the classical vampire, superfast, the vampire can retreat to an open plain, wait for Titus to show up, then take potshots with a sniper rifle before Titus gets within sword-throwing range. Unless I missed his ballistic vest or his excellent bullet-dodging ability, any vampire with a brain (which you make it sound his usual targets are) can easily take him out. The combat would need to be on some battlefied that favors melee (like the vampire's office or something) for Titus to have a chance of taking out his target. I know he has training with firearms and could bring with him an assault rifle, but I didn't get the impression that he took firearms with him. Go to Comment

I needed a method for the main character to move back and forth rapidly from LA to Colorado, and other places, and driving wasn't going to be a viable option. We've got to get there ASAP! To the Hunter-Mobile, drive non stop for 2 days? I don't think so.

So from a meta level they are totally supporting characters. Piper has seen gameplay, as she has a lot in common with the MC, albeit a somewhat different skillset, and has been close to being an NPC minion to the PC. Go to Comment

This is very well written for an oekaki. Cudos for that. They do seem kind of bland, even with the supernatural influence/secret. I can see some ways to use them, however, though I'm unlikely to (prefer fantasy to modern stuff). Of course, they are support characters, so...

Anyways, good job for an oekaki Go to Comment

Good and in keeping with the Cosmic Era Vib. I would not want to get hit by a tazer wearing these...

I really like how it's a sort of adolescent/infant god coming of age, and that clerics get untempered and unpredictable powers from it. A nice beastie, and i would probably use it more as lore and for cultist encounters than a direct confrontation with it. Go to Comment

I kinda like this one as one of those things you can go see 'because it's there.' Giant fish are pretty neat, and somewhat under-represented, but then I can kind of see why - even this one looks a little tricky to use.

Two thinks present themselves, outside of your suggested plot hooks: first, the story of Jonah. Imagine what could live inside such an enormous fish. You could have a whole city inside. People could make pilgrimages there. Second, I think of the Wind Fish, from Link's Awakening, especially with the dreaming. I don't know what you'd do with that, but there must be something.

Like SE, I particularly like the nascent take on a new sea god! Also a nice touch is that Bahamoot doesn't "devour" everything it surveys randomly, but rather feeds on energy while simply breathing.

just a note, because i can't help myself... final fantasy didn't turn Bahamut into a dragon, that was Gary Gygax. The lawful-good, platinum dragon foil for Tiamat. :) Go to Comment

I was going to say the same thing Muro!

This is really cool, and use of images is excellent.

Echoing val on the use of images. Sin is one of the coolest creatures the FF series has come up with. I could definately see myself using this at some point. Go to Comment

Another of your product-ready posts - it looks like a page out of your awesome Cosmic Era source book.

Great job!

Very professional as usual. I don't really like the name though, as something that would no doubt be said a lot during a campaign it doesn't really roll off the tongue, nor does it sound very roboty.

Also, the first image doesn't work. Go to Comment

Nice! This brought to mind the old MoonHunter series of articles on Mage "tools" of the trade like the Solomontic Rugs and Shadow Shrines. The thought that seers and mystics have such hidden chambers secreted away in large cities is also an inspiring thought...

The library wall-shelf pivots and opens up into an eerie chamber of mirrored walls, floors, and ceilings. "Yes", says the Baron, "This was my great-aunt's secret room. We still do not know what she did inside, or what the room was used for..."

The imagery of a mage in a mirrored room, communicating with reflections of spirits and gods know what else, is a great one. And of course an obvious plothook, but i have to mention it, because I immediately pictured it...PCs get trapped somehow in the mirror-maze of dimensions (even though it is a communicating chamber I know). the mage has to help them get out, while they encounter countless spirits and obstacles in this multi-dimensional world.

This is an excellent place for PC's to stumble upon, or to watch while the mystic they hired does their thing.
