I would suggest turning this into a list of cause of deaths for a random background generator, with different sections for 'serious' and 'silly' sections.

Even better would be a scroll solicting the most outrageous/ingnomious TRUE PC/NPC deaths from your campaign.

I strongly suggest putting this into In-work Advice Requested - it is not ready in any case. Go to Comment

I agree with Valadaar on this one. I would love to see this as a random generator. I'd definitely love to contribute. Go to Comment

I'm not sure whether you were trying for entertainment or utility. Either way, the sub's too lean to satisfy.

Also, you might want to give some thought to freetexts. The "Death" freetext links you to macabre, death-themed subs like the Armor of the Last Stand and Never Ending Silence. The "Dying" freetext, though... not only does it seem redundant, but it links to absolutely nothing.

P.S. Self-cannibalism? How does the game get there? (The last time I saw autocannibalism mentioned was in a throwaway line in Transmetropolitan.) Go to Comment

I really don't see much point to this what so ever; if a gm is "out to slay the party" there's really no point to playing (Although cotc games are a notable exception to this bit) since it's hardly enjoyable for the players, and I'd imagine the GM to simply flat line a pc in some off the wall manner.

Also like Micheal said, it's really too short, and seriously needs the silly free text to go along with it. Go to Comment

23. Hit by an unusually focused burst of radiation from a solar flare
24. Realizes that there was some major paradox in own life, vanishes from existence with a look of vague surprise
25. Struck by a falling dwarf while walking in the mountains
26. Struck by a falling mountain while walking with a dwarf
27. Seduce / Seduced by a Minotaur
28. Tripping while picking blackberries, death from blood loss
29. Attempting to pitch a tent on a "hill", actually the belly of a sleeping giant. Not sleeping for long though.
30. Caught in the crossfire in a running battle between Gnoll and Hobgoblin skirmishers, quilled from both sides Go to Comment

An odd idea, but it's a sorry scroll that has no... well... scrolls. Let's fix that! Go to Comment

Part of the humor of my games is telling the players that they have died in some bizarre fashion, only to continue on with the story like nothing has happened at all. It's a good way to break the tension in the air. Go to Comment

I have looked a player in the eyes and told them that they'd died in some idiotic, random inane way. Then I continued playing like nothing happened.

Ever wanted a spell idea? How about something that duplicates an item on the list (and you guys complain about a -scroll- which is supposed to be a community effort being too short- well, add to it!)?

Not all games have to be serious- having some random guy randomly fall from the sky can be a wonderful encounter.

This isn't about killing PCs. This is about absurd ideas that apply to other areas in the game. Yes it's silly. Yes it might not be fun to pull on the players. Worthless? Hardly. Humor is an integral part of the games I DM, and little touches like these (Haven't YOU gotten sick of "You kill it." "You stab it and it dies.") can add personality to a campaign- even serious Bushido followers can enjoy a quick, tension breaking moment. Go to Comment

There was a greek myth where someone was so consumed by hunger (he ticked off the wrong god) that he eventually began to eat himself... that was the inspiration for that! Go to Comment

Not bad, although i have to agree with quite a lot of what is being said, on the one hand it is slightly short in terms of description, but as you say it's the humour that counts. Go to Comment

Of course, the opposite piece can be easily made by any better leatherworker (without the magical effect, unfortunately). And one pretty day, the glove stops working... darn, did somebody make another glove?!

An okay item. Go to Comment

Drackler's comment on 2008-06-01 12:32 PM
This is a usable sub, clear, easy to read, etc. I do have a couple questions, though. First: the glove has Corran's mark on it, what does that look like? Second: The Arcanes are now in possession of it, who are they?

Also, the leather was blessed, but it didn't form into the right shape until Corran started cursing, did that affect the glove? Anyway, it's a nice sub. Go to Comment

The humor punches this one up a few notches from what otherwise be a simple straight for 1st ed magic weapon.  But hey Corran may have been a man of his time.

valadaar's comment on 2008-06-08 07:04 PM
I like the humor in this item and it strikes me as a reasonably effective item. A little to close to D&D with the reference to what happens when brought into other extradimensional places. Perhaps just leaving out what usually happens and state only what happens with this item.

I think I'd stuff these compartments with a bunch of poisoned needles. Then you shake the targets hand and fire.... Go to Comment

An interesting fellow, I was reminded for a second of Pratchett's War, who is actually a female (precisely the kind men love to kill each other for :) ).

I like the take on him, as the newest, (possibly) most powerful deity. Of course, many priesthoods would like to paint their god that way. And those fluff pieces seem to me disjointed and kind of fun... which I guess is only fitting. Go to Comment
