I'm currently running a campaign set in Danamar, which is taking the majority of my creative juices at the moment. I'm glad you guys are still enjoying what material has found its way here. Go to Comment

A little specific, but not too bad. It serves as good example of a way to layout and organize a scenario. Go to Comment

It is a nice piece. It has some great details. I could use a little more explanation, but it holds its own as is. Go to Comment

Good one! I always liked magic items that can make other things, or that potential for creativety. I imagine that with some study of this fire's magic a person could make all sorts of things, I would say it only combines similar materials thought. So, for example, you couldn't mix the properties of a metal and a cloth.

Any thoughts on what could happen when cooking with this flame? This could make for a crazy chef's utensil if it allowed for mixing food textures anf flavors. Or forging small, compact, yet highly tasty and nutritious rations.

Solid idea, with some nice flavor. Very few problems (one that confused me for a moment was the use of the word "not" instead of "knot" when you said "The top of the walking stick is a very gnarled not of wood" I was thinking the top was suppose to be something other than wood) But I really love the accidental discovery of the powers, and enjoy this Corran fellow. More on him would be nice.

I like the line, "Vulcan, be he god or simple man..." Makes this a nice generic item.

A magical item for a Craftsman. I like this a lot. And its history is compact but complete. Go to Comment

Much better then a renamed wand of fire. Nicely done!

You should link this back to your cloak. Just put the sub number in square brackets, followed by a | and then a label, like this. Go to Comment

I'm a sucker for accidental magic, and this seems to be in that vein. I like this, and I have to admit I'm intrigued by the possible results from the use of this thing. Good one! Go to Comment

This is a great idea. Is there a codex or whatever for magic items which provide noncombat ability?

It is too bad this guy quit posting....who chased him off?

You know who I am looking at here. Go to Comment
Corran's Cloak

MoonHunter's comment on 2008-07-05 07:53 PM
Coran needs to be an NPC write up. Like LLorryn of The Singing Steel, Corvus, or SnO's Ironspirt, the character seems to be the root cause of many magic items (as seen in http://www.strolen.com/content.php?node=1454 ).

Now, is he the first guy to make something this cool or useful? Is this now a common enchantment in their world now?

It is an item of basic utility and need. Someone didn't think to use magic for this before? Is it just a basic spell that someone just came up with and someone else might be doing it somewhere else? Go to Comment
Corran's Cloak
Items  (Clothes)   (Magical)
Pieh's comment on 2008-07-03 11:17 PM
It's a solid and practical idea. Basically it is a very convienient cloak that does what a cloak should, only a little better, and with a minor camoflage ability. A good low level boon.

Parts of the story were amusing and likable, but I have no idea what a Walking Stick of Vulcan is... That is a problem. All I got is that i can shoot fire, and apparently that fire can fortify clothing with magical abilities. Write it up and link it to this submission, or do a short Bonus Item write-up in this one. At least a brief overview of the Walking Stick of Vulcan would be nice.

Anyway, not too shabby, I can always use a good cloak. Go to Comment

The write up is somewhat entertaining, but just a few more lines would have made it entertaining enough that it wouldn't need a qualifier. But there isn't anything strong to say about this item other then it is fluff for a fantasy setting, and useful in that what the PCs are wearing other than Armor is often ignored or unrealistic. Clothing that can't be destroyed and adapts would be a handy filler for that common gap in RPG details. Go to Comment

Vulcan is the Roman God of the Forge. Hephaestus in Greek. That should be obvious enough :) Go to Comment

What to say. If I had to vote for this now, I would vote low, based on the size and the purpose. I don't mind it as much as I see the bigger potential that has been already pointed out:

- you could go the silly route, and collect the Bizarre Ways to Die, which could be an interesting list by itself,

- or you could really gather the Ways to Die, ordinary and bizarre. You would get more help from us, as it would make a much more useful list.


Note: starting it with talking about killing PCs is a sure way to draw fire, but such is life. Make this an interesting scroll, and you may even get that random generator. Go to Comment
