An interesting idea the centre of a local religion or cult perhaps

Does the Stump gain anything from all this attention? If so, what?
Does it really care for the affairs of humanoids? Or even notice (beyond their effect on the forest)?

Do the villagers gain from this (beyond peace of mind)? If so, what?

Thanks manfred that all makes sense

A minor cult might develop based on what the priests (i.e. the humanoids the Stump likes the company of) believe that it wants this might be genuine (they truly believe they are communing with a divine entity of some form) or fraudulent (they use the fact as a means of conning the local villagers into doing their bidding)

Either way, there are plenty of role-playing opportunities Go to Comment

I like this as a minor local legend with potential for much more. I would have liked more details on it but as it is, it's at the high end of my 3.5. Go to Comment

I like this idea. I am developing a roleplaying game and could use this to help characters get acclimated to the environment and the opponents therein. Go to Comment

It is going to be a lot of work to incorporate this into a campaign, as you can not just throw in some information on the fly, but besides that, I love the idea and it may be very usefull to both PC and DM. Go to Comment

Nice submission, and I think I will use it in a new sub i am writing. I love the scathing aspect of the book, plus the fact that it is not cursed. Go to Comment

This is quite cool - its something that some monestaries may make required reading to reinforce humility.

There are magics that make one forget something. Sure they need some kind of a saving throw, but those that are willing to undergo the spell would have an easier time to forget. The cult naturally cannot cast the spell on everyone, it is but a way in the last stages of THE plan.

It might eventually come to a situation, when they know they all have chosen to forget something to free their god. God not coming? Hmmm... the high priest should have some reminder somewhere, just in case.

If the mountains are a deity, we could turn the whole plot on its head. Would mean they want to destroy it. Or, turning on its head once again... They destroy their expected deity with that saving attempts! Head starts to hurt now. Go to Comment

Agar's comment on 2003-02-03 11:21 AM
I wonder how the cultists handle talk of the upcoming mass suicide? They should realize that all thier efforts to drive any mention of the mountains from thought is making those mountains the center of thier focus and hamstringing any hope of it being forgotten. The only way for them to actually erase it from memory would be to destroy all mention and then kill everyone who knew about it.

Perhaps more than just being mentioned in the binding of a deity, perhaps the mountains ARE the deity. Mining would be next to out of the question, unless the diety did or still can instruct them to aid themselves with the buried riches. Go to Comment

I think it is interesting that this is more a plot than a location.

This could easily be the centerpiece of a campaign - there are so many directions this could go.

Any reasonable plan should work but keep in mind that his little boy is quite heavy.

NOTE: Father doesn't want to look helpless to his little boy and the humanoids should appear as mere tools to take care of the dirty work of his own great plan. Go to Comment

Another nice simple plot - straightforward, though may not line up with ones views on dragons.

I agree with valadaar, though I think that is part of the charm of the submission. I like how usable it is in that you can just plop it anywhere so long as it thematically fits the game. I also like that it is a short submission, I feel those are underappreciated.
