As a side, note, I would prolly ditch the temporal magic, thing, but yeah that is me, doesn't fit well into my campaign, but I still like it, but you gave me a pretty good idea! Go to Comment

I saw the name and thought it was hilarious and their description makes them fit well. It's cute, but I wish they had some sort of function that would make them usable or interactive with players. As of now in my mind they are not useful and they're not combative so I don't know what could be done with them to fit them into a game. Go to Comment

I always like the subs that can be used as a plot point or simply to give the adventure more depth. If the locals see something they may attribute to a spirit they can invoke the name of Saint Duncan. Could leave it at that or if the PCs ask about it there is a few lines of history that they will get this info just broadened the scope of the game.

Cleric of the party is asked to exorcise a local demon/ghost in a villlage that has been haunting them. The cleric actually accomplishes it but the locals still "see" it around and see damage it continues to do. They are convinced that unless the cleric visits the church of Saint Duncan and uses his power and name that the cleric couldn't have possibly gotten rid of the spirit that plagues them.

There are people religions grow with. This saint is one of them.

A great solid post. (That could be now linked to the write-up of this religion... is there one?) Go to Comment

I was reminded of this mythical NPC today, so a hearty BUMP, and an updated vote go to it!

This is the sort of historical/ mythical post I like. It grants history. It grants background elements for the setting. It provides dramatic points for the campaign. In short really handy.

He is most useful when the setting has a psuedo christian/ monotheistic religion, like the Vicean church or The Messenger's church. It would take some work to adapt this to other things.

You really should put together a church setting (the society post) and possibly the religion (the systems post for the religion) for this post, so we can hang other things upon it. Go to Comment

I like how humble Saint Duncan was - and the message, that honest well-meaning and the will to do good work can leave a legacy.

I also like it a lot. It does a great job of blending the workings of the Catholic Church system with fantasy ideals and actions, to create a great feeling of authenticity and history. Would be a nice thing to read up on in a musty cathedral basement. Go to Comment

This, as usual, is a great sub, Scras. Might even inspire a character in my writings in the future. Go to Comment

Great story - I agree with other posters - solid, has a history about it.



Another thought is that this would integrate into some kinds of Sci Fi quite well - I'm thinking of Dark Heresy in particular.  There are religious traditions buried in that (the Ordo Hereticus and so on) where this would fit - fight Chaos and so on.



In a more mundane way, remove the supernatural and give him the role of a local priest or some other reason to be popular - e.g. resistance to the government?  Clues there in the refusal-to-politic part of the story.



Anyway, great and very useable character.

Then less than perfect players shall suffer the wrath. Like in all things, subjectivity exists.

Long, long ago, a friend of mine kept track of every notable "good", "evil", "lawful", and "chaotic" act the player performed. Notable usually meant a conscious choice, usually when it was easier to be evil or chaotic, than good or lawful. (The log was pretty darn long, as he noted every action. He also had a tabulation sheet (manual spread sheet) for everyones action.) He used it to determine if the character could use certain items or receive clerical boons.

It kept people honest, as their stated allignments were one thing and their effective allignments were another.

It is a lot of book keeping I admit, but a very useful tool. Go to Comment

Awesome. I might argue that the benefits are a bit over-powerful, but then, who is completely virtuous, eh? After all, even a righteous man may have a moment where he considers taking more than his fare share in the gold.

Can a man have some qualities and some detriments? for example, what if someone is not greedy nor lecherous, but gets impatient with people easily? can they become dragon-strong, immune to poison and kill everyone he dislikes? Sounds like a good, powerful villian to me. Perhaps a king - elected for his great qualities, but feared for his ruthlessness when dealing with those who oppose him.

Also, what if someone has a change of heart throughout life? Can a curse become a gift, and vice-versa if the people change from good to bad?

In spite of these couple questions, i give this a definite 5/5. I commend your efforts!

I take it that the first animal is the Chimaera then. I look forward to seeing the other 11. Go to Comment
