This post should be rated a bit higher than it was. It was the first "NPC of the "Extra Horde" variety on the Citadel. At the time there was no "category" for such things and it was competing against stellar single person posts. Nobody really knew what to make of it. So it has languished in the bowels of the database. Now in Strolen's V2.0 it has found a place and hopefully a better score. Go to Comment

The fact that the orcs are seeking human help seems to be inferred rather than plainly stated. An interesting concept, Go to Comment

Well, it is not that great, but... you are right!

Quite the standard cursed item. The numbers seem ugly, but at least they give the impression of the pluses and problems associated.

Depending on my mood and need, I would give the item a 2-3 vote. The author should really improve it some day! :D Go to Comment

Of course, it was supposed to be for a small group, just not written there. A radius will do just fine. :)

Thanks for the BUMP! Go to Comment

It is easy to simply swap the numbers for "a decent bonus", "major bonus" (or penalty). I have considered changing the writeup, but frankly, there is no particular need for that. It shall stand as an example of old craftsmanship. :)

On the brighter side, I noticed it wasn't linked to the plot/group that originally spawned it. That was fixed. Thanks for the Bump! Go to Comment

Aaah! Stats! It Burns! It Burns!

Hmm, wonder if we should adopt a generic stat system - ie,

minor - %Percentile 5-10% D20 +1/+2
moderate
etc...

As for the sub, an okay item but I would 'destat' it somehow... Go to Comment

Well, I didn't let it affect my vote, though it is my preference that the sub be completely usable without looking at game stats... Go to Comment

An item like this one would be hard to detect as cursed, as the wielder gets bonuses from it. I like the "sneaky" nature of the shield: Someone trying to detect its magic would be likely to discover that it is powerfully enchanted without understanding the full nature of its curse.

Of course, if the shield's owner DID figure out the curse, he could arrange for one of his enemies to get it, and "hose" the guy's whole group.

The item should have a limited range of effect, perhaps 15' radius, otherwise, the effect could be awfully potent: "The 1,200 men in your legion have a -2 to their saves, but you're not sure why...." Go to Comment

I noticed the stats as well, but didn't see them as a serious issue in this case. The shield's description is comprehensible, even if you aren't familiar with those systems that scale in the +1 (minor bonus) to +5 (major bonus) range.

The subs that I have trouble with are those that don't suggest what they mean before they start slinging out obscure spell references and numbers. (E.g.: "This +5 Sling of Seduction gives targetting bonusses equal to the Randy's Smarmy Slingboy spell, but also gives a +5 bonus to Occupation: Courtesan rolls when worn as swimwear...")

I like this: unconventional! When you said about "detect magic" do you mean that, say, the torch-flame burns a different colour in the presence of magic? Go to Comment

No, spells and abilities that easily detect dagic, have a hard to time to find this one. It is a way to tell them: You have something that is magical, but you just don't know what. Simple torches would be the last things suspected. Go to Comment

These torches are a sweet idea. Perhaps there are a good number of torches scatter across the lands being used as prisons for water elementals that were defeated by a fire elemental. Once reunited, they could make a bid for their freedom and try to defeat him. Go to Comment

Gotta say, one good idea! I agree with ephemeralstability; VERY ORIGINAL! Maybe when using THIS torch, the PC might get a -4 penalty using it, instead of the +2. Go to Comment

Another thing,

Perhaps, if the PCs are going to light the torch, and notice they are being held back by something, they may burn the torch, thinking that its evil and out to get them. At this time, it may act like the ring of power (LOTR), and possibly control the person trying to burn it, or one of their companions, to either light the summoned torches, or stop the torch itself from being burnt. Also, when you said that the torch could control fire, (of torches) would that mean if the heros were walking down a corridor with unused torches on the walls, if the torch wanted to, the torches would light up as they walked along the corridor, and maybe light a torch that an enemy was looking at closely (ow! my eye!) , or wearing??
