1. I would make the assumption that the basic spells of necromancy were originally created by Mastere, with (pulls out PHB for Matan) with spells like Soul bind, Create Greater Undead, and Finger of Death being the equivalent of signature spells. She was the basic founder of necromancy in my setting and the current repetoir of spells are either hers (Animate dead) or were built on her work. Finding a book of special spells, her custom grimoire would be something that the Church would work very hard to make sure didnt happen!

2. Mastere came from no book, only my demented imagination. I have a picture that I call Mastere and when the gallery is working I will post it. (not my artwork) Go to Comment

Well, the 'cutting of the breast' struck me as a sensible idea after I read this line..."After learning the so-called lessons of discarding attachment to the flesh"

Anyway, she's perfectly memorable! Its all the wonderful details that seperate her from the pack of necro goths!

I'm playing next weekend for the first time in a month. My PCs will learn of her! And they will learn about Masterectomies as well! :D

And I love Thanatologists! Thanatos ('Death' in Greek) was the name of my first ever character (summer 1983), and he started a cult of Thanatologists. Go to Comment

Solid ideas with a lot of detailed background for conversion into other peoples game. This is good for a reusability factor. Just place your needed faith and necromantic cabal in those slots and it is easy to transfer

Not my cup of tea but a solid post. I have two questions.

1) Do you have any details about specific spells that she used to evolve the field of necromantic magic?

2) Is this based on some novel you have read? I would like to read more about her motivations than what is presented. Go to Comment

Fun idea. The power of it is in the description of the attack for me. Not something you can just wear around though. Wonder how well it does to be covered up. Go to Comment

An okey submission. Nice write-up and all, just misses to me *that* little something. Go to Comment

I liked the basic execution, the idea behind it, and that it showed process. There were some annoying spell check and capitalization errors, but I cast no stones at anyone for those little things (especially after finding a number in my posts today). Still plothooks and useful story elements make this a good one. Go to Comment

Spell checked, went over my caps, and caught a continuity error. I mistakenly wrote that Mastere cast off the mortal coil and gave up the cloak when it was Lashrac! Go to Comment

Interesting-possibly dangerous to the wearer to use it's gas powers in confined spaces. Go to Comment

I like a lot of the details given in the post. The cloak has a good history and will be usable in a number of venues, but I especially like it for the necromancer NPC.

The notes about it becoming less affective as the wearer became more (powerful/experienced) is a little unnessary as this happens with all PC's and their eqipments, except maybe for equipment that can gain power and experience also.

Overall well presented and thought out. Go to Comment

Excellent as a story to leave you wonder "There can't be such a city, can it?".

Precisely the thing you wouldn't believe as a fiction, but tends to happen in real life anyway. Amusing. :) Go to Comment

Quite interesting. Not sure what I'd do with it... Especially since it is destroyed... :D But still.

It is more of a metaphor than a place... a piece of story, rather than the reflection of a place past. I am sure there were colonies trying to be exotic and individual, but this one goes too far into the satire (and the satire codes could of made it a bit better.

It is an intersting story, but I don't find it nearly challanging enough... just odd. Go to Comment
