I still love this, and it has actually made it into one of my games. The party was going through a warehouse used for covert drug-smuggling, and one of my players kept asking what was in so many different barrels. "Elven Green Tea" was the first thing that came to mind, so that's what I stuck with. Funny thing is, this was part of a plotline that involved a bunch of elves going missing, so the players actually thought this stuff was far more . . . sinister. Go to Comment
Okay. The write up was a great one 4. Plus 1 for the best darn dungeon write up I have seen in a long time. Plus 1 for filling in an empty gap in the category. sorry can't vote a 6, so I guess I just have to give you a 5 and two paws up. Go to Comment
I guess I'll be the lone voice of dissent. Why is everyone gushing about this being such an "new" thing? "new dungeon environment?" ummm "6??".
As always, it is written VERY WELL! But I dont get the uproar??? Haven't you all sent your players through ice caves countless times? Is this really a brand new idea?? My pc's have frozen their backsides off in ice caves thousands of times!
Ice caves are cool(hehe) dont get me wrong, and fun to play in. This sub does a great job describing said caves for gaming purposes, but ummm...they are ice caves! I know you've played in them before!!
I vote 3.5 which according to rankings means "Sweet Idea", which it is. Go to Comment
I like him. He is epic, without being the worlds most powerful fighter. He is a Big Bad for a story arc, a colorful figure to fill out the world. The details are good, the twists are nice, the write up excellent, and the usability is High. Thus I find it hard not to give it a 4.75, oh heck, round it up. :moon: Two paws and a tail up.

Thanks for pointing out the mispell, it is supposed to be Ouranga, not Ourange, one letter away from orange, I think that was the problem. As for the 15 squires, these trainees are responsible for everything from keeping his horse groomed, to oiling his armor, to making sure his pavillion tent is properly arranged. He had many servants as a lord, and grew accustomed to people waiting on him hand and foot. Go to Comment
He does have trouble wielding a sword as his ring finger has been severed at the base, his last words as a duke and hopeful for the throne were 'you will have to cut the ring off of my finger.' They did.
Thats the line that did it!!
This should be a template on how to make an ordinary bad-tempered "fighter" , COME ALIVE!!
he needs 10-15 squires? thats a lotta squire baby! does #15 carry his chamberpot?
and finally, is it Ouranga or Ourange? I prefer former. Go to Comment
Instant chrome and history to add to a city (or a country - they are likely to spread to other cities, too).
Plot hook: somebody started stealing the Chalices used in numerous processions. There are hints that an evil sorcerer wants to try a new ritual, 'that will make all people weep' or something like that. The basically worthless cups gain suddenly epic importance. Go to Comment
