Someone didn't think to use magic for this before?

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

First you can add the 30 tag to it, you have earned that. It is an "Other 30" if you want that book keeping. Now that aside.

My well known dislike for anything worthy of the silly tag means I am going to be another lower vote and a hard sell for anything better.

I never hold short against a submission, as a submission is complete when it provides all the information needed to use it in a game. And it is a scroll, which means we can add to it. The question we ask is... why?

Maybe I am old,(Okay, I am...),but I don't see the utility or the real humor on this one. It sounds like your game takes dying in innane ways like a bakka hammer in an anime. It doesn't really happen, but it is just a gag visual. That might work for you, but for the rest of us.. we are all going "huh?".

Too many whys for me. There is not enough reasoning for it. And the real killer, it is not funny enough. Go to Comment

In my opinion this needs deleting. The submission is extremely short, I can not see how a GM could ever use this at all.

Sam and Tommy at the age of eight and nine might actually find this funny as they would grow tired of an RPG game after ten minutes. "Haha Tommy, you are eating yourself and DIE TROUGH SELF CANNIBALISM". Seriously, what is the meaning of this? This is in my opinion far from the standard of what is usually tolerated in the citadell. The way I see it you add free text silly and explain to us how this list might be useful and you finish the list or this should be deleted.

Sorry but this is my honest opinion. Go to Comment

Well- the part about telling the players that they die during the sessions you gamemaster is,... a pretty narrow way of GM'ing. I am not saying that there is anything wrong with it. I am sure you and your players have a magnificent time. But here is the deal, instead of replying to my comment: Why not simply edit your submission and add what you just told me in a sensible way. Your submission needs to be something we can understand and possibly use. You are right in that a scroll is a community effort, but the community needs well done submission as base for their efforts. Do that and this might be something. Go to Comment

I cannot actually see a use for this list "in game", yes it's something that could keep us amused here in the Citadel, but you're not actually trying to kill the PCs. I suggest that you add the "Silly" freetext. That being said, I do like it. Go to Comment

This gets no love.  I think we could rework this so that it could be more useful.  Often times the gaming worlds we have are teaming with spirits.  Very often the PCs have the ability to contact these spirits to gain information about a person, an item or perhaps just ask for directions.  If you have this ability in the game you may never know for sure when the PCs are going to use it. An easy  go to list of death stories may be handy to have around when you have to come up with a ghost on the spot. When you conjure a spirit you conjure both a life and a death. You also conjure up the past and get in touch with a lost time.  The story of that person's death should be short but it should hint at a large amount of information and at a larger world.  Each of these lines in this 30 hint at a story.  I think there is use to this list of demises. I have five suggestions for what might be on that list. Check the forum.

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

Silveressa's comment on 2008-06-02 08:59 AM
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
