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
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.
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
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 clichés, occasionally throwing a few twists into the works. Go to Comment
Okay. I missed this one long, long ago. Well, that has been fixed.
While this is not of the Avontix series ( http://www.strolen.com/view.php?node=free_search&free=Aviontix ) it could be. She is the perfect substitution for the Cat Goddess in the pantheon of the Aviontix Gods, as she would be right now in Aviansis. There it would be a somewhat secretive cult, perhaps a lone tribe out in the sands and dry lands. Or one or two members in every tribe/clan.
Thank you Siren for a well placed HoH too. This is the kind of thing I like seeing HoHed, something from the way back that people haven't seen in ages... brought to the fore. Go to Comment
A typical iron ore mine, the Irongate was closed some years ago and the entrance was closed off with a heavy gate of oak and thick iron bands, the Irongate. The mine itself was abandoned because it was a breeding ground for dire rats and many of the miners suffered from giant rodent bites as well as diseases from said bites. The mines are haunted by the ghosts of the men who died in dire rat swarms, adding to the mine's unpleasant character.
