I like the name of the armor, I like the idea, I am just wondering how it fits the rules....

(when at minus 10, subdual dammage normaly reverts to real damage, but perhaps I should read: the armor makes sure this does not happen....) Go to Comment

The only thing I missed was a bit stronger background. Like, how was it created and the usual. Otherwise a good item. The Armor of the would-you-please-die-soon hero, comes into mind. But then...

Anyways a good item. 4/5 for the lack of background Go to Comment

This is pretty nifty, though the mechanics seem a little clunky. Go to Comment

The initial possession should cause some damage and be painful, sort of like ripping out your essence. From the outside it could look like somebody was being shot by arrows from many directions, one at a time causing their body to convulse to each new hit. It is basically a fight of mental strength, the new spirite fighting the current owner. They should have a chance to resist, albeit a low one. Once done they should be weakened (lower HP) whether or not the spirit took over.

And after a few hours, you could even say that your *true* spirit that got thrown out had to learn the ways of the spirit world so it could try and get back to their body. So the time of possession could depend on the intelligence of the person. A very intelligent person would only be gone for minutes perhaps. They being the natural owners of the body have an easier time re-possessing it so they get even more bonuses to re-entering their own body. Should be a chance to failing again though. Go to Comment

Which questions?

I would posit that the root and leaves have a similar effect when accidentally consumed, but are differently used in the rituals or secret recipes. The 'Actual Effects' are what this plant really does and can go wrong (with side effects of course).

I'm glad that you find it useful. :) Go to Comment

All hail the Vorpal Bunny!

I like the idea of special preperations giving the ability to draw a certain spirit. Say, add a piece of the intended spirit or have or use one of thier possesions. That would work great into a story line of a warrior tribe with ancestor worship. They would have a ritual of cutting the hair or pulling toenails when one of them dies and then mixing it in when taking the beast weed, to try to call on the skills and might of their ancestors. They would probally have a good sized patch of beast weed they were tending to. Go to Comment

I did not remember ever seeing this one before or after the move. I think the toxin idea is interesting. I think the side effect of your sould got booted and something else comes is a bit off, but useful.

I like the implications of such an unpredictable and dangerous plant. I can see it sprouting in places of massacre and death, as if the spirits of the slain disperse its seeds. Go to Comment

I remember this one from before the move. I always thought it had potential, and might incorporate it into my world. Go to Comment

I used this in a forum game, and never even commented on the sub?! Strange, I distinctly remember commenting on this. Weird.

Anyway, good idea! Go to Comment

I like the idea of a buff for wild creatures. I asked myself the same questions as Zylithan.

Do the root and leaves have different effects/uses? I might re-label "Actual Effects" as "Side effects."
I will keep this in the GM toolbox. Go to Comment

What? Almost two years and no comments? I know it's a bit strange, but no one has anything to add to it?

OK, OK, stop the apologies. I just wished to see anyone adding something to this "Illusions gone wild" idea.

The curse is certainly a bit cliche.

Hmmm... it is not said a big mean dragon is after the unlucky one, just that he is fated to meet him. Could be a surprise for the dragon, that ate him or burned to nothingness. A parley may be possible.

Alternatively, the character not only looks like the Illusionist, he could start to see his ghost. Or he could start to exhibit his personality traits (oops, another cliche). This could go on until the ghost is dealt with, or the book is written anew.

Or something else still. Go to Comment
