"Are you sure?" asked the angel. "The changes will be permanent."

"I swear it!" gasped the dying paladin. A steady trickle of blood oozed from beneath his armor, and his voice was beginning to fail. "Please, divine one, give me the strength to strike down the demon!"

"As you wish," said the angel, and the paladin was engulfed in divine fire. It purged him, burning the poison from his blood, closing his wounds, and searing his torn flesh together. When the paladin stood up, a moment later, his charred face was grim. The fires of heaven burned in his chest, and he was filled with an unearthly vitality. But he was disfigured. His skin was charred and black. He would never again be pleasing to look upon.

"Thank you," said the paladin, and the angel watched him wordlessly strap on his armor and walk from the temple. Go to Comment

There's no reason this thing has to be evil. It does what it's summoned to do, nothing more and nothing less. It's just our Saturday morning cartoon morality. We see spider, gore, muttering, and we think that this thing must be evil. Probably a tool of the spider cult.

Actually, reading this reminded me of real surgery. You should see the sort of stuff that they do for hand surgery. Not for the faint of heart.

And I suppose there's this conceit that the powers of heaven are freely given out to those who are worthy, while the powers of hell are earned by sacrificing something. I agree with Scras with that one. Unfortunately, this is also one of the reasons why hell is so much more interesting than heaven. Go to Comment

Just . . . wow. Scras, I am eternally jealous of your skill. Truly a desperate tool for the insane or those with nowhere else to turn. I can imagine a character turning a bone stitcher on someone else as an act of mercy or revenge, possibly when the "beneficiary" is under magically-induced sleep. They wake up horribly disfigured, but alive and with greater physical powers. Very cool. I'm glad that val linked back to this! Go to Comment

I'm envisioning something almost mechanical, like out of the Matrix. It's awesomely gory, rediculously over the top,and chillingly frightful, but also AWESOME.



5/5

Could it make you beautiful, if you left it instructions of what you wanted to look like? If you could command it, you probably could do something like that. I know you write that it nothing is made beautiful, but with careful instructions, you theoretically could become beautiful. Go to Comment

Even a character of a reactive sort is fine, with these characteristics.


She has to be a Witch - how long does it take the people to notice she doesn't age, at least not normally?

Not so alone - gold is all fine, but Larkin is missing something: a baby. She might have been an accident... but how can she breed? If she finds out about her true kind, she could try to hire sages for expert advice on dragons. Or find a dragon herself to... try it. Or use somebody (PCs?) to find her a dragon egg. Or whatever.

A well-fleshed out character, with lots of possibilities... I wonder about but one thing - what are her goals, and interests, besides sleeping on gold? So far, she seems to be of the reactive sort. Go to Comment

Maybe she espies a PC that catches her fancy and tries to copulate. And when the time comes... she knows... it worked.

So then you have the question. What do the PC's do with a half dragon chasing after one of their party and once she lures them into her bed chamber. What happens if she become pregnant? Go to Comment

Agree with Echo - nice logical backstory but no long-term motivations - like her though - 4/5 Go to Comment

Well written extra. I think, while her motivations are left open as Echo and Dragon say, they are then discussed in the plot hook area, Go to Comment

Another great NPC with colour and usability, and with plenty of room for additions.

Fflam prostrates himself upon the cold floor of the citadel, pulling at his ears with the joy he feels at your kindness. Fflam doesnt deserve such kind praise, yes it pleases Fflam that Pariah is pleased with him.

Scrasamax's comment on 2006-12-06 02:34 PM
Well, both Dobby and Gollum were referenced when I was writting Fflam, but the real idea is portraying the most pathetic of demons, an underling so low that he is generally only summoned by goblins and their ilk and thus is desperate for attention from a real wizard and a chance to regain power lost so long ago he can barely remember it.

I guess some adventurer group brought him to his fall - what else :D
For a silly campaign, he's excellent, though likely to make the PCs show less respect and caution around the next demon they meet... an effect that might be actually desired by the GM. Go to Comment
