Particularly I liked how Saarmach lost the Switch, trusting in magic versus magic and forgetting mundane dangers. Otherwise, this is an okay high magic item. Go to Comment

I plan to detail the Artificer as an NPC (not a unique lifeform :) ) soon. Go to Comment

Personally, I have a thing for high-magic campaigns :). In the campaign where this came from, it was used by Blackthar as an NPC, and only occasionally. He did not, for good reason, trust it very much. Go to Comment

Good history.

That could be quite a potent item. I could see the Artificer secretly manipulating the switch's destinations in order to control its owner's travels. Perhaps we could hear more about this mysterious creature? Go to Comment

I LOVE the mail/delivery service thing since it roams between villages. Awesome Idea. Great write-up! Go to Comment

Great stuff. Lutazum would make this particular tribe stand out in the memories of your players instead of just being a random tribe they encountered.

I have to second Muro's thoughts. Play around a bit with formatting and spelling, this is an pretty weird idea that just screams to be used. Btw, how long does it take for it to travel to the next village?

And: both options are good, whether a divine creature or freak mutation. It is likely the Hanaset will never know. Go to Comment

It looks pretty after the update!

Plot hook: Spring time

Magical research can be different than collecting strange ingredients. Heroes are sent on a delicate mission: go find a female turtle of a similar type, dope it with a large dose of the enlarging potion, and then let it mate with the mighty Lutazum, getting the eggs as a reward.

What a simple plan, and what many problems it can hide - from the simple question, how a turtle's gender can be ascertained, through the numerous 'issues' or a terrible jungle (not counting natives), up to finding out that Lutazum is not interested (or is actually a female itself... but how could you know?), and more.

The PCs may be the protagonists of the story, or just come upon them and have fun. Go to Comment

Nifty. I like the idea that all of the neighboring tribes deciding to use this as a mail service. And giant turtles are always great. You said that it was a gift of the tribal gods. Is it really a divine creature, or some freak mutation that the local tribes just assumed was a gift from the gods? Go to Comment

Nicely done. This giant divine turtle has changed its ecology and the villager's social ecology, thus the critter has impacted its world. Go to Comment

How does the beast understand commands given to it? Is it able to truly understand human speech? I would just to like have that little mystery answered. Go to Comment

Nice work val. I love the image of the slow and deliberate tortoise and its novel usage and near veneration by the local races. Kudos on the names. Go to Comment

Love it. LOVE it. The Image of the Giant Tortoise, covered in leather satchels, just sort of plodding along, grazing from its gardens; the relationship that he has with the Hanaset; even the sort of Native American feel of the Hanaset themselves- everything just seems to come together on this. 5/5.

BTW- The Hanaset fascinate me- I'm imagining them as a sort of North American Indian-style culture, with limited technology but really complex politics and philosophy, a la the Tlingit/ Haudenosaunee/ Cherokee- that right? I wouldn't half mind seeing a write-up on them, valadaar, if you ever get around to it. Go to Comment

valadaar, this is my favorite post of yours so far.

Love the lead-in, the quirky details, and the Great Lutazum itself! Love the 'Tili' part!

What does it eat? I'm guessing obscene amounts of vegetation

Wow, I have a soft spot for big-ass weird creatures, tribes that revere them, and all the mysteries and unanswered questions that swirl around them. The only reason I dont give top marks is that I needed just a little more info on this beast. Otherwise, its great!! I will use Tili Lutazum in game-play. Thanks! Go to Comment

hmmm..well, just more info, you know? :D

Plus as manfred mentioned, some tightening up of the formatting and spelling and stuff.

Otherwise, Great! Go to Comment
