I think adding these to some of the existing curse list subs would perhaps have been better. This one feels a big random.

Criticism like this is what Strolen needs more off. Why not add some ideas yourself, however? Go to Comment

76. Sources of illumination giggle madly in your presence.

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."

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

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
