Rhaphi -large cave insect

Dragon Lord's comment on 2007-07-11 05:22 AM
Good one epsilon.

A nicely described beastie living in a logical ecological niche.
Exactly the sort of thing every game world needs.

Regarding the comments on usefulness.
There is a tendency amongst us gamers to assume that all creatures are either useful to humans or else evil, nasty, monsters.
This is of course entirely false. From an ecological standpoint, the only measure of a creatures success is its ability to survive long enough to breed.

A good solid post - 4/5 Go to Comment

very nice bug, epsilon!

Like val, I like the way you formatted and presented this sub. Short, concise, nice headers, and tasty morsels, errr, I mean disgusting bugs! Go to Comment

re typos.. Really erm i have the spell check always on.. I just ran it again, looks good. There maybe some grammatical and incorrect word choices tho Ill send a Rhaphi to graze through it :) ta

I left a few doors open too, some people have found :) We cant have a totally useless beastie can we. Ill leave that up to the GMs to play with.

Not bad at all!

I could nitpick on using a bit of polish in places (and what is Wild Empathy anyway?), but that is all little stuff.

To ask a question, how much remains of the Unicorn's spirit? Can the horn be used for dark purposes? It appears it can... but it would be a sad thing, wouldn't it? There should be a price... not necessarily a cruel curse, but the item could slowly wither away, for instance.

Liked the details, by the way, up to that unexpected marriage. :) Go to Comment

Yes, a word or two on the less obvious spell effects never hurts.

As for the marriage thing, that doesn't spoil the submission really, it was just a "Huh? What?" detail that kind of surprised. (Your daughter advises you with submissions? Hey, that's neat. :) )

Anyway, it is often the 'insignificant' details, that bring more potential to an item. So if there was a marriage, then the druid probably had children... heirs who know very well about the horn, and surely want it back!

There you go, a plot hook to a useful item. Go to Comment

Wow. The level of detail is impressive, though it can be a bit dense at the beginning for someone with no muscial talent. An excellent submission! Go to Comment

Very good. I think one of these made from the horn of a Dark Unicorn would be able to cast evil spells. Go to Comment

I concur with the lads(Man, Mur, Sca). This is impressive in detail but does not become bogged down. Excellent work Epsilon. Go to Comment

sorry about the marriage, my daughter made me do it :)
Wild Empathy,, yes sorry possibly too specific to 3.5? Not being aware, at this early point in my RPG travels, of other systems Its a little hard to un-specify something Im not sure is specified:) hmm even I didnt get that sorry.
Maybe Animal Empathy? Befriend animals?

Dark spells , hah you found a whole thanks.. I made sure that the "un reeded uses"
were all "nice" like things as they were directly horn related almost.
But didnt think about a bad spell on a reed being blown thru it..
My intention, in the game where it is being currently used, was as a druids aid.
Your right I must expand it to handle the dark side...

Of all the magic items that I have perused on the citadel, this is one of my absolute favorites.  The detail is rich, but not overwhelmed with fluff.  The power is unique, and the limitations on its use creative and logical.  I simply cannot say enough good about this item, so well done!  I must find a way to use this one day.

What they all said. More details would make it shine even more, and weird sects are always a bonus.

And you can't help but expect the villain, after the heroes seemingly defeat him in this little village, will show up in a town far away, having perfected his little invention. So there will be The Idols II. as well. :)

Nice. Neat idea. I like the concept of a wizard who creates a cult not for some religious reason, but as a front for a gang of thieves and a method of gathering intel. Go to Comment
