I didn't think a new kind of dragon was possible but you have created one. Go to Comment

This makes me want to hear the rest of "the story". Maybe someone should pick it up where scrasamax left it, just like Scras did where Manfred started it.
I like it when we are able to build and flesh out each other. Well done scrasamax. Go to Comment

A fairly standard dragon with some twists making it stand out from the usual run of the mill. Well written and well presented. Go to Comment

Outstanding, its always beneficial when a writer can take an old cliche thing and turn it into something more pliable. I can see the possibility here for a Dragon version of 'Mycroft Holmes', running a great empire from behind the throne.

I can envision an excellent plot outline in the period leading up to the collosal struggle whereby the machinations of Vychan are creating strange alliances and tensions among the human factions. The PCs would have to navigate these relations under stress.

However as Manfred suggested, where does his money come from? Perhaps rather than reward adventurers with gold, maybe his reward is the funding of commisioned work. Hiring artists to write epics about them (or make busts, or paint, etc). That way he can keep most of his gold horde. Go to Comment

Great addition to Manfred's plot, and a great submission on its own. It's interesting to see a dragon who doesn't spend most of his time torching heroes. Go to Comment

Another sub rife with potentials. Moons comment about political involvement by the dragon is sparking something.....

So where does his storytelling skill come from? He has some aptitude for it? or what? Go to Comment

Ancient Gamer's comment on 2006-02-07 02:32 PM
He is tied to the Demonic Hysteria plot, but could easily be switched over to another similar situation. As a character he is a dime a dozen, though he is believable. Heck, I know a couple of guys like that.

He could fit right into the minor NPC codex Go to Comment

He has an alright history, but I'm having trouble picturing the character. I do question why he didn't turn to story telling once he found he had a knack for it. Interesting attributes, he might come in reasonably useful to a party... can he be trusted? Go to Comment

It's not easy making an interesting character out of the town drunk, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading about James Barley. Very well written. Now I need to find out more about this "demon scare" he was involved in. Go to Comment

Decent bit player. Could be used for a number of roles. Perhaps the victim of true possession or snatched away as someone 'unwanted, unmissed' who ends up not quite being either.

Maybe a greedy pander-amulet-seller will kill one of three wittness for a better business, like the demon kill...
and hysteria is upgrading

and yess, maybe the true demon worshippers are coming to the village for investigation

I will try this

Thanx!

A great plot that can be easily played in pretty much any setting. Bonus for the Scooby-Doo option. :) Go to Comment

Kassil's comment on 2006-03-11 03:20 PM
Nicely done - it's well set up, with a simple, reliable basis for the plot, with several variations that can let a GM run any way they want with it - whether it's troublemaker PCs with a need to cause havoc, sleuthing heroes discovering the trickery, or even a genuine demon causing havoc with the mortals as pawns.

The thought that occurs to me is that demons tend to be rivals with one another; suppose another demon had already been about the town when the brothers either invented or fell prey to this one? If it's false, the real demon is going to be angry and likely wreak havoc on the trio for insulting demonkind in such a way. If the demon is real, then the one already in place is going to be itching for a fight to prove who the real master of the town is, and the entire town could almost literally go straight to hell when the fight breaks out.

Yes, nice and solid - excellent for PCs of whatever level. I'm glad you put in the "how to use it" suggestions. Another possibility, only suitable for a one-off session or the start of a campaign, is that the PCs are local villagers. The events surrounding this "demon", real or imaginary, are what could bring the group together in the first place. Go to Comment

Very good-a plot that can have a real demon brought in or do without one. Go to Comment
