I've also been pondering a Trollish Bris ceremony, and I have realized something. No matter what they chop off or how much, would not regeneration quickly do its work, defeating the Bris' purpose?

Teaser rocks. "They have a cave-troll" is right up there with "We're gonna need a bigger boat" Go to Comment

Bump. I just love the idea of troll leashes. It has a 'classic item'  feel.

"What would stop a human/elf from capturing an orc, and simply forcing/torturing/magically probing him into spilling the secrets of the Troll Leash?"

Got to leave the PCs something to do, but this would make a great RP scene.

Murometz's aspiring mage stands along the wall at the council of mages as they discuss methods for preparing the Regent's Army for battle with the Duke. The job of the pages is three fold learn from example, keep the goblets full and block the drafts. Murometz's young page shivers, rattling the metal tray and metal pitcher in his hands. The noise was louder than he thought and all the mages turn to look at him.

"DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO ADD, CAUSE WE ARE TRYING TO SAVE YOUR KINGDOM, SO PLEASE IF YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE NOISE TACK A USEFUL IDEA ON THE END OF IT" snaps Lord Hokum Rokum-demon bound mage of east.

"Why....why....don't you just ask the Orcs how the leash works......."

Hokum stands and draws his arms as if to cast, but stops and a quizzical look crosses his face. The Elven delegation looks at each other sideways and the Arch Mage opens his mouth as if to speak, but instead just nods his head and says nothing. Hokum sits down and says "Very good, thank you" Go to Comment

That assumes a D&D centered troll, not a Tolkienesque one :)

I like this, I do not use Halflings in my games usually. But these bad boys can easily be transfered to any setting or people. Well not ANY, but you catch my drift. Good work. Go to Comment

Love it! The world's in the details, so to speak, and you've handled them well.

I am only half-way through, but this definitely gives me a sense of the culture of your world's halflings and certainly a window is opened on their values as well.

Holy cow, if this is any indication of the level of detail and wonderful minutae your world entails, I'd like to RP in it. Love it.

I am a big fan of these labors-of-love. Although no one in their right mind, would ever *need* to know all this, it is awesome that all this information is there, for when you DO need it.

Great sense of verisimilitude!! They are all believable halfling holidays. Every one.

Well done and I agree with Dossta about the links. You can also use the link widget of the editor to do links as well.

A thoroughly enjoyable read. Many of these holidays can be turned into mini quests or adventures for travellers to halfling lands, so the list is also very useable. If you could fix your numbered links ( type the full name of the submission between square brackets eg 30 Exotic Birds ), that would help with the flow.

A day for the elders to complain about how things nowadays are horrible?
A day celebrating the clever defeat of ogres?
A day for a game that lasted 27 years this one time?

It is well worth the golden vote I just bestowed upon it. 5/5 Go to Comment

As an external examination of these mysterious structures, this is excellent. Teds point holds as well - though it is possible to fill in the details oneself, it is always nice to have option of a ready made examination.

As for the fabrication of molten stone structures, magic would almost assuredly be needed. Getting enough fuel to melt non-trivial volumes of stone would be ruinously expensive.
