Thanks for the input, CP. You're right about the names; I was trying to loosely connect the item with a couple of my previous posts, with results that were a bit discordant. I hope to detail Senek and the history of the area in future submissions. These will reveal that Senek was originally a foreigner, who introduced advanced ideas of warfare and governance to the region in the course of his rise to power.

Unless a better explanation occurs to me before then... Go to Comment

Eventually, I will be able to tie these together, but not yet. I need to complete some more posts first. One link that was established is that the Dwarven Steelbows were also possessions of Senek's dynasty.

The Druid-Magus Cuthbad Mac Corhan gained his supernatural wisdom from The Eternal Witness when the druidic mysteries were celebrated there, and indeed, the test that he devised to find the Warlord of the Clans may have taken place in the sacred grove dominated by that ancient, haunted tree. (Eventually, I would like to detail Cuthbad as well as his king.) Go to Comment

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

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.

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
