A key location in a campaign if I ever saw one. Nicely done!

I'd like to see some specific NPCs - either short and included in the sub, or new ones linked, would help flesh it out more. Go to Comment

The Standard Love Potion

The standard love potion must be consumed by the person who is to fall in love with the next person he or she sees. In stories much hilarity and embarassment ensue as the lover-to-be lays eyes on the wrong person.

This sort of potion would certainly be illegal since it is tantamount to a permanent or semi-permanent life-rape drug. Marriage vows would be destroyed by a single dose, free will is subverted to the command of an unknwon substance. While oftentimes the Cauchemar may mean well, the end result is someone being forced to another's will, regardless of their own. Is this not one of the core themes of evil? Go to Comment

The Cauchemar

Voyeur, peeping tom, pervert. The usage of the term Cauchemar is just as derogatory. A Cauchemar is a person, generally a male who uses love potions, or charisma enhancing magics/spells to seduce women to his own ends.

The Cauchemar is a taker, and generally is bound up in his ability to have any woman he desires. The most famous have been the villians of epics, where they attempt to seduce a noblewoman but are thwarted by the noble knight/hero. Go to Comment

Arranged Marriage
Political ties have been formed, alliances forged and all that has to happen is for the young ones to marry to seal the deal. Unfortunately one or both are unwilling, having found love elsewhere (with an adventurer perhaps?) and extraordinary measures must be taken. Just before the marriage a servant enters their private room carrying decanters of wine (love potions) for both.

Twist #1: The vain female (or male or both) looks in the mirror as she sips the wine.
Twist #2: The servant sips from one cup before entering the room (for hilarious sequences)
Twist #3: The female/male sips from the cup and looks at the servant before he exits Go to Comment

I liked the last bit, about the 'mistakes' of the 'arranged marriage' ceremony. Haha.

An overlooked subject indeed. I'll have to spend some thought on the presence of Love Potions and such in my own world. Go to Comment

"And what's over there?"
"Oh, that's where the Death Giant is."
"What???"

You could easily make a "Death Giant" Neighbourhood, which guards this powerful creature. Guards, and an assigned priest and/or wizard which take care of the wards, and the occassional fool that tries his luck. Go to Comment

...and don't forget the occassional visiting necromancer, er I mean sage, who wants to study the beast. Of course NOT for making another creature of the kind. Go to Comment

Ah here it is, I've been looking for this one! Sends wisps of smoke from Poe's and Hugo's graves.

Tragic, grisly, short and sweet! And deserving of a BUMP. Go to Comment

Hmm, this one is interesting - a view on what happens once the hero's leave. Somethings do not end cleanly.

"a zombie filled with the pain of rot and water damage"

I just love the idea of a neighborhood with a giant, drippy zombie roaming through it. I'm sure desperate people still try to pass through it, even if its walled off. It'd also be a good place for brief, clandestine meetings.

I'm curious why the city hasn't just brought in a magical SWAT team, though. Good real estate is worth a lot. Go to Comment
