Fun and twisted. Combined with a pc that has the curiosity flaw (or better yet a player with it) you have every excuse to send the pc running across the world in search of know-it-all sages, magic keys, and anything else they think may open it. (Of course once they *do* manage to get a deity to open it or find out there's nothing inside they may well try and fit the gm in any conveniently nearby box, depending on their sense of humor.)

Oh and Pieh, do me a little favor and put your idea up as a sub linking back to this one so I can give it a proper vote and comment (+1 is too little for the idea). It's good enough it it's own right to stand alone.

5/5

Edit: One little question, Why isn't this a golden submission yet? It certainly deserves to be one. Go to Comment

Deserving of HoH as well.

I can see PC's frustration. *Grins with manic intent* Go to Comment

A fun idea. Not sure it's a great one, but certainly a good one.

Love it. Perfect to stall players after they do something you did not expect and need a little time. Go to Comment

I like that orb by itself, and it seems to fit in with the other orbs that Moonhunter has presented.

Good submission, although we might consider saying "please" to the author before submitting derivitive works. As long as no one has any problem with what we're doing, I don't see how it's an issue. :) Go to Comment

I gave everyone permission to do it or play with the idea. If it is an official orb, I will link back to it from Corvus's page. Go to Comment

We should see more of this - the resources of the Citadel are ripe for building upon.

Hmmm. Saddening. I like it because it strikes a chord of emotion. I'm going to go and cry about the evils of prejudice now... Go to Comment

If your world has some horrible forces alien to the human mind, this might be the result of meeting them. But we don't need Cthulhu for this. Even in a 'ordinary' war, some cannot bear the burden of things they have seen and maybe commited themselves. Also, some special monsters can drive you insane.


Why there are relatively many? Hm, good question. It may through the presence of these horrors. It may be a quirk of the world, that makes many who suffer horribly into the Lost. Maybe there is some spell or curse (possibly divine), that disrupts one's mind in this way.


If this happens from time to time, and adventurers are prime candidates, I can well imagine an adventurer's guild to be among the sponsors. Maybe someone wealthy hopes in curing of a close person. And the village can cover a part, if there is food in surplus. Go to Comment

A little bit like Vietnam vets after the war. They didn't even get recognition, and most of them suffer from emotional problems (i.e. Shell-shock, depression, alcoholism, amnesia) Go to Comment

A neighbor to Asylum or a smaller scale version, easy to put into a campaign.

What causes one to be lost? More specifically, why are there so many that someone had to make a special place for them?

Was there a great Evil that came across the land?

If monsters were responsible, then a number of ex-adventuring types would be there. Perhaps they are the mcguffin that brings you there.

What noble ruler (or was it a church) that ran/ runs the hospital/ asylum? And why do they run it? Is it guilt that motivates them or is it altruism?

Questions, Question, and more questions. Nice concept and easy to impliment Go to Comment

EchoMirage's comment on 2004-06-16 04:21 AM
In a fantasy world, there are so many things that can drive you mad ... you think napalm is bad? Have a dragon incinerate your village. You thing being violated in a back street is horrible? Have a demon do it. Family problems are already enough to unhinge a mind - now try and imagine knowing that one of the quarrelsome family members is possessed/a doppleganger, and find out which - they all behave irrationally already!

*shudder*

It does not take much to reduce one to a gibbering wreck!

There are days where I would like a place like this. This could be a good place for a sometime mentor to dwell, and the PCs must come and go occasionally, getting to know the people and perhaps appreciating it.

They may even care if it were to somehow come under threat.
