An original trap, but I fear the consequences should the party not make it. The TPK potential is too high, so I would have lowered the difficulty a bit, for instance by allowing idea checks to help them out with the quiz, or as val said, by allowing magic dispelling and such.
Good trap, though things like 'no escape' bother me. All illusions, the product of fallible mortals, can be broken with sufficent spellpower or other attributes/resources. Extremely Difficult, yes. Impossible - no. Go to Comment
I need a little more structure on how the organization works, rather than an interview of just its purpose. Is it cells like a resistance networks or are they more "up front" and have actual public meetings and such. (Then they work through various fronts and such). I need to know how they generally work.

One of the best and most realestic societies here.And I'm not just saying that to be nice.Any magic rich society would have many members who dislike the danger that crazy or evil wizards can bring to those around them. Go to Comment
Actually, I find this to have more in common with Socialists and Communism than with Religions. The whole "Work with us or die" thing just strikes me as Communistic. A good society though, quite similar to my own Order of Kren. I think it could be fleshed out a bit more though, with specific players and/or plot hooks. 3.5/5 Go to Comment
An excellent way of explaining one of my major gripes about that excuse for a world. It doesn't explain a few other details, such as why, with a thick atmosphere, the night side cools that rapidly, or how the surface is something that can be crossed safely "as long as you stay in the shadows" even during the daylight, but it does do a good job of explaining the atmosphere being breathable.

Hehe. The King has done it again!
I must add: I marvel at the way you play with language. Words seems to flow from you with little or no effort. Where CaptainPenguin is unrivalled for his poetic style, you excel in the art of well formulated and intelligent posting. If you chose the path of an author, I believe you will excel and prosper. (just believe in yourself. You have a gift - I hope you use it!)
Well, by now you probably understand that I think this post, as are all your posts, is well written. Why do I award it with a 4?
-Because I cannot think of that many relevant uses in most RPGs. A true 5 is like "YES, I wanna use this and I CAN use this. RIGHT now as a matter of fact"
-Because it is nearly, but not fully, up there among the stars. Go to Comment
A nice idea and well-written. The way this is written makes me think you have some science background (do you?) which is cool (but b/c this is all fantasy/sci fi not critical). As always I'd love more info but overall a great post. Go to Comment
