This is one of the more interesting items I have ever come across! A cure for lycanthropy (sort of) and with all the side effects...man. I would be curios as to what a fully transformed person would be. Totally devoid of emoition. A Star Trek Data type perhaps. Wouldn't that be fun to roleplay in a fantasy campaign! Go to Comment
This could be the start of a series of thematic rings - take certain words and lead them to the extreme...
In my current campaign, one has a ring called Saving Grace, but it could be called Compassion - the wearer can take damage from others upon himself (1 hp per second) and can pospone all damage he suffers for a small amount of time...you guessed it, then suffer it all at once ;D Go to Comment
I'm glad to see this item standing alone, without any other items to pollute the purity and complexity of your excellent ring of stone.
Would be great to see more items like this, but on other themes and other items. Go to Comment
Said kingdom wants really to expand its borders, but plans to attack a third kingdom! Procca is an agent of it. Whatever the outcome the mission has, it is a guaranteed win:
- sabotage may stop the war entirely
- capturing them reveals the involvement of the other kingdom, so the attacker must decide whether to:
reconsider the war, attack the other enemy (who has a possible ally now), attack as planned, but leave some more forces to guard its borders and eitherway risk a war on two fronts... Go to Comment
Eh? Who submitted that? Nothing if not constructive.
Just had a thought about this character: maybe he made enemies in his career as a warrior, and believes that the best way to ensnare them is through disguise. He "injured" himself and is now renowned for being disabled, but in actual fact is just awaiting the arrival of his enemy vultures, attracted by the prospect of an easy kill, who he can then surprise and slay.
We weren't getting at you, Manfred! I think the submission's a great one. It was the not-so-insightful anonymous comment which attracted my attention.
And yes I'd agree about the secret training business rather than all out pretence. When I made my comment, I was thinking about Sherlock Holmes, and how he fakes his own death to lull his enemies into a false sense of security. Go to Comment
Alright, I admit. It is a wheelchair. Please don't hurt me... *sniff*
There was this idea about a disabled man, that does something about it. Cliche, but good enough for the background of a school, slightly better than the stereotypical old-but-still-mighty warrior, I guess. As I envisioned him, a chair came naturally to mind first, wheels following soon after, for a proud man would not like to be always carried around.
Enemies OK, but faking the whole thing?
Hmmm... would require quite some wickedness (and willpower), to stay immobile for a few months/years, to gain the advantage of surprise. Let's try the middle road:
Say that the injury was real, but it began to heal, naturally or not. Riel can move a bit again, secretly training to get his former strenght and agility. And if old enemies are likely to show up, keeping his condition secret might be good idea. Go to Comment
