I know this was written as part of the Let There Be Light quest. Why is it no longer listed there? I believed then, as now, that this was a worthy quest submission! (ditto for Veracit's Furball) Go to Comment

This certainly is food for thought, and I will be sure to consider it when planning my next adventure. Go to Comment

I just noticed the name Danamax on that paper, I will be revisiting the Danamax Rapiers shortly. 



This is still an interesting article. Food for thought, as I said before. And the pictures are a nice addition to this solid submission.

Running a cocktail party of NPCs can be hard on several levels, first it is often hard to get he PCs to interested in NPC details and furthermore you have to play each NPC with enough distinction so that the PCs can keep them straight, because after all it is only you at the end of the table. I had one GM that would put up pictures every time a NPC was around, and that was helpful, or he would hand outs of pictures when we were in place with a lot of NPCs.

I would try to go over Pwr Pnt presentation of the NPCs every couple of games, aided by pictures. I would also try and give all the NPCs a sharp (if not exaggerated physical trait) that the PCs could recall. But I have tried the web technique before to keep track of characters and it is helpful in the planning stage (you could also try a family tree type setup), but in actual game play it is not much use for referencing. I would like to very much to read more about this plot and how the implementation of this went in the game.

I like this - feels like it could stand expansion, but it is a neat article.

+.5 for pics :) Go to Comment

I'll see about a summary of the campaign and how the web was used. See, next week they're going to get tasked with dismantling as much of that web as possible- since they hate the city and most of the people in it, they should approach it with glee. Go to Comment

I honestly wouldn't have posted this without the pics- there's no other way of capturing my manic attempts to map out social relationships. Go to Comment

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

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
