#16 If I (the DM) ever say "Do you really want to do that?"- DON'T DO THAT.

#17 Four ten year olds will quickly turn into an elite adventuring group, given tough enemies to face.

#18 When faking your friend's death, attacking them in broad daylight is NOT the answer.

#19 Doom falls upon all of those who would give the temple of no purpose a purpose.

#20 When the cleric starts the campaign drunk, you know to stack a little more defense into your build.

#21 While the DM is often an evil bastard who is out to kill you, being so paranoid that you take forever to get to the actual battle/trap/danger is just as likely to kill you as whatever trap MIGHT be there. Go to Comment

26: The biggest obstacles to online campaigns are timezones, sleep schedules, technical difficulties, and distractions.

#27 There are days when the dice hate the PCs.  I just love it when low level weenie monsters slaughter my high level character.  Or vice versa being accused of being a killer DM and/or having to save the party from an encounter which should have been a cake walk  (yep, the kobold just rolled another natural 20).



#28 Trying to rob someone the  DM doesn't want you to will result in certain imprisonment or death.



#29  When descibing unique methods of killing an immortal demi-god like villian NPC in most public places will result in awkward glances, people quickly shuffling away from you, and a strange willingness of bystanders to wait for another elevator (or worse another escalator)



#30 Avoiding the adventure that the DM prepared for will result in some pretty strange twists of fate in which you end up on said adventure anyway.

#35 If an entire town is out looking to lynch a suspected murderer... even if you believe he's innocent, when you find him it is best not to go running after him, shouting his name while holding aloft a picture he painted of the victim. He is not likely to believe you have good intentions and might respond poorly.

#64 When the DM asks whether you're standing to the East or West of the mysterious portal, you're on the North side.

#65 There is nothing more useful than a 10-foot pole. Ever.

#66 As a Thief, repeatedly poking fun at the Fighter for having a Cha of 3 in exchange for a Str of 18/00 is a quick way to get your nose remodelled. Go to Comment

Kult, one of the few games where you use a 20 sided dice and it is not a d20system. Kult is also one of those games where I as a GM go the extra mile in graphic and mature content as opposed to CoC. So, over to your submission, I am not a major fan of first-person narratives but this is some fine writing. I became intrigued and wanted to know more about your character and that is a job well done in my book. The fiction section is becoming a place worthy of the citadel. Well done Sil.

Murometz's comment on 2011-02-15 01:15 PM


Gruesome! That is the first word that comes to mind.



I guess the second thought is, "what happens next?", which is my way of saying, I liked the tale. Kept me interested in seeing what Dr. Vile, the fetus-implanter, was up to...

What happened next would be more of a (lengthy) campaign synopsis, the length of a short novel, which I could probably detail in installments if anyone was truly interested... Go to Comment

A very nice 30, and I like the reasoning as well - there's got to be reasons to go into those often-lethal maintenance ducts... :)

Actually, we had a 30 with this theme....



Only, it got to 101.

What about simply adding these to that list? (Also, some of these are duplicate of problems on Scras' list).



Minor issue: legionnaire's disease is caused by a bacterium, not fungus.

They're well written, and some quite inventive.

A solid thirty. Usable and inventive. I love to play sci-fi horror survival games in one night sessions, this could be a nice list to have.
