Yeah... the fate of its inventor was really the eye-opener to how well are some secrets protected. Good touch there. Go to Comment

I like this, but the juxtaposition of greed / covetousness and romantic love seems a little off. One would think that animal lust(or even covetousness of a person, it can happen) would be a better mate between the two. Go to Comment

Mean love potion, subject to tons of abuse and causing untold grief. Thumbs up. The part about the original inventor resembles Daedalus - and the ruler's folly was akin to that tale; also, he gained naught, for there still had to be alchemists who knew the secret to make it.



Perchance was Fenberk opposed to the substance's abuse and wanted it destroyed?

I rephrased the sentence you were referring to, as you were absolutely right. I wasn't originally picturing truly romantic love, but something more covetous: Not animal lust, but a desire to possess the salve's wearer. The words that I had chosen didn't match what the unguent grew into.

I would expect the standard means of dispelling magic to work, or the sudden "infatuation" would eventually fade away naturally. Go to Comment

*shudders*  A subtle way to ruin a neighboring kingdom, or to have your revenge.  Is there a cure?

...yet a greatly atmospheric place which is interesting enough as a mere legend, and even more as reality.

And of course are there plot hooks to be found. From the good ole search for the remains of a foolish visitor (or something useful he took there), through going up and attempting to conjure a spirit of High Magus Profligas (or anyone from that ancient story), up to the need of feeling the Spirit of Wisdom because of {insert quest}.


I very much like it! Go to Comment

Returning to those submissions I know I have read but failed to comment and vote on. This one is not that old(fortunately, because not commenting on things you like is pure heresy), and I'm glad to correct the error sooner, as opposed to later.

...This is one of those that have the "realfeel" to it. You have no problem imagining it and, as a GM using it in your games. Bravo. Go to Comment

Beautiful, Wulf! This has it all. I love this sub! Its this kind of atmospheric location, that I really enjoy and appreciate as a somewhat jaded GM. It simultaneously manages to seep both verisimilitude and rich "fantasy". Wonderful!

Plot Hook ideas are invading my brain! I will have to share them here, soon. Go to Comment

Beautifully rendered and realized location. Great balance between the evocative imagery and the "real".



(The handful of frost giants still found in the region are descendants of those enslaved goliaths). 



Very nice ^. I can picture PCs encountering one of these descendants, and hearing the legends of the tower passed down from the enslaved ancestors

Hey Wulf, was this inspired by the Tarot card? Go to Comment

Wulfhere's comment on 2007-08-18 09:38 PM
Yes, it was inspired by my readings about the Tarot. I used to be fairly proficient at Cartomancy, a practice that I have since concluded is spiritually perilous and unwise: Those seeking promises of the future often lose the lessons of the present.

I didn't try to stay true to the commonly-accepted meaning of the card (Sudden reversal or catastrophic change), instead visualizing it as an example of the perils encountered by those who arrogantly traffic in spirits and seek to foretell the future. It became a place where Wisdom, if not respected, brings doom. Go to Comment
