I love this, shame on me for not commenting and voting before. And perhaps I should not not mention that this is the second time I have read it. Sometimes I simply forget to vote. Ach Mathom has me in his cold grip.
But to move on- This is so full of goodies and hints that I almost drool when I read it. I can think of a million ways to use this and I shall. Too bad we only have one word for labyrinth in norwegian, so I can not point out the difference for my players. I would also like to think that some human landlords are aware of the reason for decreased ferility but fail to mention it because of greed for their lands. Go to Comment
This one did it for me... few of them make me reread a post before i am done because I want to enjoy it.
I think some of my favorite parts of this, other than the Unmentionable One (hehe funny stuff) and the passage of manhood, or would it be Taurhood?
I find it rather funny that Mur only thinks I would give a 4.3 on this (or 4.5 in the voting sense). Perhaps I am too hard on my voting practices but this one rates a full 5 out of me. Ill give you a lower score next time. Go to Comment
Remind me very much of the Tauran from Blizzard's World of Warcraft, but I think the traditions and ceremonies you give here have a more "authentic" feel to them. The trial of the freezing river and the "yodeling" are both colorful touches. Perhaps a human druid/ranger could discover the source of their lowered fertility and restore peace between the two races. Go to Comment
A golem who broke away from the chain off command and became sentient, as a PC, might be interesting in this setting.
A golem re-emergence as sentient, peaceful and "reformed" might be also fun! Go to Comment
After saving Princess of Pearls from the dragon Sangia, the warrior Falha took his bride and built her a home on the banks of the Agares river. After a time, that one house grew into what looked like the preeminent city of Falhath, Daurus. Daurus would quickly be overshadowed by economically dominant Ozea and its place in the great play of things would fade.
Daurus has a very long history and is often referred to as the Cradle of Falhath, and the birthplace/home/tomb of its first hero Falha. The city itself speaks of its heritage as many of the streets are very old, the stones worn flat by the tramping of centuries of feet. The architecture is pre-Old World as a great deal of effort has been expended in restoring and maintaining the old buildings. This, tied with the lack of violence or battles near the city has given it a feeling of sanctity.
Daurus survives on flax crops and pilgrims who visit the Shrine of Falha, the hero's tomb. Go to Comment
