This is a perfect Garage Sale item. It is subtly cursed, and some might not see it as a curse at all. This one has picked up a negative reputation, which I would like to see downplayed... otherwise no one will want to have the cloak (thus negating its effect(. Go to Comment

Interesting Idea. I like it. It isn't an epic Item, but a very nice piece of work to throw in.

Suggestions: Fill out the story of the paladin. Make his story really epic. Then I would add in something about town gossip blah blah blah. Fill it out some you get the idea. You don't have to though. Not every item in Strolen's citadel needs to be a 5.0 item.

Hope that helps

Subtle yet fashionable, plus it plays on the basic desire for sympathy combined paradoxically with a moral superiority. Nice work. Go to Comment

Anyway, I like the change :) Go to Comment

REVISED: I decided to flesh this one out more and add a more sinister side to the cloak's history. Go to Comment

I rephrased the rumor angle to make it seem less well known; only a few people have connected the incidents. Go to Comment

In my mind's eye, I envisioned a sorrow-filled family member bringing the cloak to some sort of commercial mage, sadly asking that it be enchanted to ease the wearer's sorrow. The enchanter brought forth the magics his client requested, but lacked the ability and discernment to notice the malignant undercurrents within the cloak's comforting presence. Go to Comment

A twisted piece of clothing for sure.

I love how subtle it is, something that seems so innocuous and really is... mostly. Is there a particular reason for it to be the way it is? It has a history with the paladin's wife but I feel there should be more to it than that.

Wow, you've been quite prolific as of late. Good tip of the hat to the olden days of the battered dice. Go to Comment

A great old skool plot. Made me feel all Forgotten Realmsy again. Nice! I remember the reign of King Gygax by the way! ;) Go to Comment

What everyone else said!

I like the old-fashioned feel of the piece. Everything is tidy and cleverly phrased! I too miss the days of King Gygax. Long live Old School!

Love the "Things Go Wrong" section. Realistic and entertaining. I also like the names here. They all fit. Go to Comment

This is a really fun submission, and I like the demonic creatures impersonatting archetypes of girls we all knew in high school. Everytime, you start gaming for the day it takes a bit of exposition for everyone to get into character. This would be a great place to remind everyone that "hey it is D&D time". If I use this I will take your advice and inter-weave this into a larger quest. Go to Comment

Excellent sub - a ready to use mini-module in my opinion.

Two points:

1. Too much of the sub is stuck in bold.
2. King Gygax - this a deliberate reference to poor old Gary? :) Go to Comment

Ah, battered dice.

I had some D20s that were so battered, they were more marbles then anything else. The poor quality may have had something to do with that too. Go to Comment

UPDATE: OOPS! I had a typo in one of the headings. The bold is fixed.

Of course, a dignified fellow like myself would never poke fun at an icon of roleplaying like Mr. Gygax... How many years ago was D and D first published? (scratches his head and pulls out the notepad and pencil...)

If people like this one, I'll try to make it part of a series of subs that revisit all the hoary old RPG clich├ęs, occasionally throwing a few twists into the works. Go to Comment
