How about a little twist:
The adventurers are hired by the 'rightful owner'(the ruffians leader) to clear that mine for a meager reward and all riches they find. Let them know (later) what they have done to this poor village. Maybe the REAL owner wants to claim his legacy back. Play with it. Go to Comment
*cough* cliche unoriginal filler plot which I (and a 1000 other people) probably came up with before there was a Baldur's Gate *cough*
No apologies for this one, but it was one of the original submissions for strolen.com before it became a worldwide sensation ;) Geez, had to put something up didn't I? What is a idea site without ideas? Go to Comment
That is pretty much what I meant when I wrote this. Thanks for rewording it a bit for me.
I spent a lot of time trying to get the nuances just write so the flow of the plot hit a crescendo at just the perfect moment. I would have to say that this is my magnum opus and there is really nothing else I can do to improve on it. Go to Comment
I think the subtle depth and growth of the plot arc were perfected. They were very small changes as the original was quite complete and almost perfect. The low votes continuously amaze me but I know greatness when I write it. Go to Comment
Hmm yes, forgotten mine. Well, is it just there's a shortage of holes in the ground that has everyone worked up over it or could this be like the Dutchman's mine? A mine that was found by one guy in some naturally hidden backwater place where everyone overlooks, a motherload vien of precious metal, more than anyone could work out in a life time. But the Dutchman had distrust instilled in him so much, he never told anyone where it was.
Maybe some of the decendants of the miner who created the abandoned mine would like to lay claim to their inheiritance now that it's been found. Of course they could offer the players ridiculous sums of money that is in the mine they will be helping to clear out. And also, the mine in question could be an entirely different mine altogether, but how will anyone know that for a fact untill iafter/i the mine is empty? Go to Comment
There can be no score for sub number 1, except a 5. As far as I see it, without this first sub to start this site, there would be no other subs, so this is responsible for all the content within the citadel.
The next quest should totally be for all participants to use this idea seed and expand it however they wish into their own sub. Go to Comment
This is a funny blast from the past. Anyone looking at this and that has been here for any length of time can definitely see the difference in quality that the site has brought. From this to say Regression by Iain... classic stuff.
Remember, everything begins somewhere and nothing is original. Go to Comment
