This can possibly be an adventure for a humanoid group:
Say the attack happened as described. Adventurers find the giant wasp hive, either by chance or purpose (say some alchemist wanted some special ingredient). Luckily, all that wasps are killed. But deep in the hive the queen remains, left behind to starve. If attacked, she transforms them into wasps, to serve her till she has enough children and the hive is full again, or they free her servants.

If you feel evil, the magic she uses is based on the pheromones. It is only a charm, so they only believe they are wasps! (cannot use their wings much, so their imagined flight is limited...) Go to Comment

This may just apply to bees, but I remember reading that bees communicated by, for lack of a better term, dancing. Now that could get interesting, especially if you made the players act it out. Hee. Go to Comment

Wow. Could you share some of whatever you're smoking?

The wasp thing is not a bad idea, but it is definately a strange one. I remember I had great fun role-playing a dog in a chatroom over several months, so roleplaying an animal could be quite fun, if done well.

First thing, how do they communicate? Telepathy is a cheap cop-out, they just talk like normal and it doesn't add anything to the adventure. You could possibly have them communicate with pheremones (scents) as I remember something about that being how they actually communicate. Cinnominy scents for anger, flowery for attraction, and so on. Set up a little set of guidelines so the players will be able to interpret what the other players are trying to say.

Another possibility would be to have the wasps be Giant Wasps and, through some mage's experiments, can talk now. They could be refugees of the destruction of their home and ask the players for help. This way is more traditional, but still an interesting exposure to an alien way of life. Go to Comment

This is a very unique idea. It sounds fun to me, but might the Destroyers be human? Wouldn't that be nearly impossible for the wasps to defeat? Or maybe it's a sort of kamikaze mentality? Go to Comment

You know, I've been roleplaying a while, and I've scarcely seen a more original idea than this. I think it's awesome. Go to Comment

An interesting concept, reminds me in of Nim in a fashion.  While not an extensive sun in itself, it opens the gateway to a great wealth of possibilities.

3 YEARS? My god! Well, it's a bit short, with not much detail, but it's a good start for DMs willing to flesh it out themselves. Which also leaves a lot of freedom for them, which could be a good thing - I just like to see a little more background and information. Go to Comment

A nice start, but I really would like to see more.

Good idea, but much too short. Need more detail on the woods, what is happening there, and the artifact that is causing it. Not enough detail to be able to drop it into a campaign.

My big question is why are the druids abducting/killing travelers between the towns who most likely are completely ignorant of what is going on? I agree the idea needs to be more fleshed out, particularly the magic item. What could druids want so badly if they are taught to derive almost everything from nature?

Ancient Gamer's comment on 2005-11-07 07:24 PM
I'd say because, while the first plot was mysterious and exciting; a puzzle to be solved on a hostile island where strange abominations roam, the second plot is basically a haphazard collection of random ideas. First they are arrested for possession of the Blue Books and are thrown in jail. Then they must escape, learn a language and MIGHT travel to a ziggurat to meet with an evil guy named Zed, who is in reality a blue dragon.

The plot is random with no red line and it is cliche ridden. I suspect that this might nave been an alright gaming session, but the focus seems to be on dungeoneering and problem solving of all kind. Such plots often end up being unrealistic even though the puzzles might be great (and having read quite a few ephe! posts, I suspect they are) Go to Comment

I think this needs to be finished - it seems incomplete.

I think what it really needs is to be subsumed into part 1 or the Blue Book. It seems rather dangling and doesn't really merit an entire submission though there is nothing inherently wrong with the ideas. Go to Comment

And, of course, as if that wasn't enough, there's the inevitable hordes of well intentioned military, mercenaries, and others, who simply will NOT understand. Go to Comment
