I like, but agree with Murometz; at first I was going to pass this by because of the name. "30 cool curses?", perhaps? Overall, some really unique and off-the-wall blights to throw at PCs above and beyond penalties to their rolls. Go to Comment

43. You incite covetousness in others; when anyone is around you for more than a couple minutes, they start eyeing your possessions greedily.

44. You exhude a strange odor which members of your own sex find highly arousing.

45. You are incapable of lying

46. Healing magic restores your health normally, but has the side effect of leaving you incapacitated for several minutes.

47. Excessive and noisy flatulence makes it impossible to hide, mask your whereabouts, or catch anyone by surprise.

48. You develop extremely powerful vision; such that you can see in all but the most overpowering darkness. However, anything more brilliant than a candle effectively blinds you. Go to Comment

Good solid sub.  I especially like that there are a lot of extra added ideas.  That way there are still lots of choices no matter what the campaign direction.

61.  You can only tell the truth.



62.  Any water you touch becomes bitterly cold.  Good for ice-cold drinks, but say goodbye to hot showers.  Rain sucks, too.



63.  You have an annoying song stuck in your head for all eternity, causing distraction and possibly insanity.



64.  You hear all of your actions narrated by a disembodied voice with a dry sense of humor.



65.  You can't enter a forest without being tripped by tree roots, hit on the head by falling branches, or possibly crushed by a wayward tree.

I also find this useful, and have added a few more ideas.  Good job!

77. Hiccups that last eternally and are impossible to cure.
78. You can only eat and derive nourishment from raw pine cones. Every thing else cause "bodily regection."
79. You have constant allergy/sinus problems for the rest of your life.
80. An town crier that no one else can see or hear constantly announces your business both public and private.
81. Same as 80, but everyone can see and hear him. Go to Comment

I kept waiting for the portal creator to come by and do something horribly sadistic as the players keep whooshing by.

Interesting, though these very expensive traps do not make as much sense for me as they did when I was younger.. Go to Comment

Ted's comment on 2010-11-14 01:53 PM
The recursive portal trap is inherently different for a few reasons:
1: The portal is entirely harmless without any ammunition fired into the trap.
2: Players are not physically disabled in any way, besides arrows and bolts sticking out of their bodies.

As to it being a "Straight copy" from the game portal, the differences between a game where a player can create an endless loop of portals and an object within a game that is an endless loop of portals the player characters have no control over is pretty large. Portal did not originate the idea of one portal leading into another.

It popularized it.

A similar historical example would be the creation of calculus. (http://xkcd.com/626/)

Sure, Newton did it first, but that doesn't imply that Leibniz was working solely off Isaac's work. Go to Comment

I will have to be honest here, and say that this trap bugs me for a lot of reasons. I don't believe that it varies significantly enough from your Recursive Portal Trap submission to justify putting it into its own sub. And it also loses points from me for being a straight copy from the game Portal. You didn't add value to the basic premise, other than the 3rd portal variants, and you didn't give any justification for the existence of these portals in a fantasy setting.

I agree that it would be neat to see portals used within a dungeon, but this submission leaves me wondering how they got there in the first place. Go to Comment

As I have seen AG do on many submissions, I must now give a disclaimer: when commenting, I try my best to be as honest as possible rather than be as uncritical as possible. I never mean any offence to the author personally. In fact, I respect a lot of your work, Infested; this sub just left me feeling lukewarm on the first reading. I guess that Portal has trained me to view any pair of matched portals as virtually the same thing -- a nifty tool, but hardly worth writing up all the various combinations thereof. Hence my comment that this and the Recursive Portal Trap are really one and the same.

Still, I read through this again and tried *NOT* to view this through the lens of Portal and you know what? I kind of like it after all. I would still like some explanation for the existence of the trap in a dungeon -- I can't imagine that they would be common in a fantasy setting. Maybe there was a wizard who always wanted to skydive . . . probably met his end in his own harmless-looking trap.

I will re-vote. Go to Comment

Euu! Endlessly falling but never impacting! After awhile it would be full of corpses and insane people! A gruesome trap, if I ever saw one. Go to Comment
