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.
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
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
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
Ways to die Articles (Humor/ Editorial)
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.
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
