Interesting. So you're poking fun at those Nigerian Bank emails we all get? I'll have you know, that no less than a "prince" from Lagos, has offered me $16,000,000 euros if I simply first "lend him" $500 for bank transfer fees. You see, he is a political prisoner, and.... Go to Comment

I like this. It gives me a certain thriller feel, like the mysterious societies in the Bourne series. Go to Comment

Can't stop myself!! Leave me alone on my web tangent. I was hoping they were going to be the spiders that braided the beard. There is so much opportunity there. Lots of dwarves braid their beard. Having these spiders make "webs" out of their beard could be such and awesome thing to use!



      Beard braid/web contests.

      Stature could be based on the intricacies of the beard.

      Certain patterns could even determine their rank, job or position in the church.

      Dwarves with the best patter could sell their Beard Spiders for a high premium. However, each one sold would change the overall braid/web.

      Malicious spiders (or a bad batch) could cause all kinds of mayhem. Tie knots, tie beard to bed posts at night. Grapple onto any grass or strings or anything that gets into the beard and just be a general pain in the ass.

      Spilled ale into the beard would intoxicate the spiders. Some would improve, some would cause mayhem. Either way, they would have issues with the ale somehow.

      Embarrassing is the dwarf who can't control his beard spiders and they go up into his hair.

      Even worse is when his Dwarven lover has the same braids in her beard

      Maybe that isn't bad, maybe that is a sign of relationship, the same web/braids

      Hey, that Elf has the same Braids as Dunder the ThunderHammer. What in Hurl's Hammer!?

      Hey, that sheep has the same...

      Ok, enough, getting weird.

Might this make for a better stub than sub? Dunno. But they're cute and well-named. Like Beard Flies, but spiders.


 


Beard lizard?

I'm not sure there's enough here to qualify as a sub, but it was extremely amusing. I loved the concept of beard lizards, too!

Alright, since you've specifically requested that the [Law of the Hammer] be suspended for this sub, axle, I'll break my vote down:

First, the idea of removing beard-dwelling pests in a "natural way" with spiders is absolutely brilliant. You get a solid 3 for the idea alone. The story is alright, though perhaps the parts about fighting the necromancer and his undead beard fleas would be be better included as an idea. As it is, it sort of distracts from the main idea of the sub. The added information is great, you get another .5 there.

I would raise my vote higher if you added in a little more about beard spiders and dwarven culture, perhaps add in a few plothooks to make it into more than just a flavor piece. Overall, this is still a great idea, so thank you for sharing. 3.5/5

Plot Hook: during a bawdy night at the local tavern (while off-duty), the local dwarven constable nods off briefly.  He wakes to nothing amiss, other than a mild headache and a slight numb feeling on his chin, presumably from resting his head on the table for too long.  He resumes duty, only to go into a coma a day later.  The doctors who treated him think the coma was caused by bad alcohol and are ready to dismiss the case, but the constable's deputy is suspicious.  In reality, someone took the constable's inebriation as an opportunity to plant a few cold forge spiders in his beard (which are decidedly more toxic).  They look enough like beardspiders to the untrained eye, and have blended in with his colony.  The constable will remain in a coma until the cold forge spiders are found and exterminated (the aggressive invaders bite him almost every day, keeping his system flooded with toxin).
