I like this Scras... I wish it had a little more detail in the order itself than their desire to murder.
My one question is why? I realize you stated that the knights have lost everything and are punishing the world for their pain... why? Even if they changed their perspective and started down the darker road, why would they be hell bent on murdering commoners, raping, killing? Would they not take up their anger against those who caused them pain? Their family died in a war, they kill those responsible for the war. Their son was killed in a bar fight, they go and murder everyone responsible to include the bar keep and the sailors and all their crew that were involved. I find it hard to fathom they would go and poison innocents just because. It is still a good idea though.
Go read my Tenets of Shadow to see if this would fit in with them... Go to Comment
I like that you impart a lot of information with few words. One of your skills that I appreciate most. Not my favorite band of knights, but then again, everything about them makes sense, and comes together. I like that they are always dressed for death. Nice touch! Overall though, I've read and come across many similar groups. Go to Comment
Agree with Muro on this - the shrouds are a nice touch.
A travel book I have from the turn of the last century (pre WW-I) indicates that certain orders of monks (Trappist I beleive) work a few minutes each day at digging their own graves in the morning. Go to Comment
Perfect to give somebody that every player looks for in every town he ever visits. Acn only stand so many loud bartenders that yell "Wench!", spill your drink when serving it and are happy to pass you the latest town gossip.
These are refreshing! Bonus points for being crazy useful. Go to Comment
well, it is this potion that some guy in a dark robe gave me. it cracked my mind and made me dig up junk from the 1.0 forums. I was thinking of submitting 30 bar wenchs, 30 children, and 30 horses Go to Comment
Scrasamax, that's a great idea. I'm printing off your article as I type this, looking forward to another entry from you. This is better than a lot of the junk people buy in .pdf format on the web. Go to Comment
When was the last time a character caught a cold or flu? Real people get them every now and again even with solid heating and dry interiors. Your characters are out in the cold and wet, and even inside is not always dry and warm. Imagine having to stop your dungeon crawl, sitting in a tight defensive position, while you all are feverish.
