I like the open-endedness of this. This devil could be real, or it may just be the superstition of the folk living in the area. It could be a malicious devil in avian form, or it could just be a smart bird!
it could even be a rumor started by a hermit who lives in the mountain and wants to dissuade visitors. He feeds the rumor by snipping the occasional rope... dropping the odd rock... leaving the odd animal corpse around.

Sorta disagree with Shadoweagle - this one is just a bit too open-ended for me. I feel like I would need more details before this would really spark my imagination into something interesting - as is, it's not much more than a horror movie monster.

Maybe 100 Word Submissions just aren't really for me.

It could, I suppose make a pretty solid session for a horror game. In that way, I like it - very less is more. Go to Comment

I found I liked him better as soon as I started thinking of him as just a colossal jerk who happen to be a magic bird. As opposed to, say, Bald Eagle Satan.

Otherwise, very good stuff. This devil, though minor, would make for a memorable campaign. Eagles see everything, man! There's a million ways they could mess with you. Go to Comment

Strolen's comment on 2013-04-10 02:18 AM
I like the progression of paladins and to know they are all corrupted or being corrupted is probably the main idea I came away with. Otherwise it is a bit confusing and not fully explained so after a single read I really don't understand quite a bit of it still.

So the sword gives them evil powers somehow that corrupt them? If a paladin doesn't wield the sword, are they still affected? I guess my main confusion is in the "deception" because I just don't get how it works. And the link to the throne seems important but not really revealed...as well as the spirits around it. Seemed cool, but didn't get those either. The children are the Paladins?

Seems like there is a cool idea there, but I just can't put it all together in my head with the evidence given. Sorry. I didn't even get the euthenizing part, although I see it where that could have came from.

I need some of it written with big letters and crayon for me. Go to Comment

It took me a couple of reads to ubderstand what was happening in here properly, but that's probably because I'm on my phone and i missed a part :p

So the paladinhood or priesthood offer a euthenizing service for those who are downtrodden, with a fictional reward on the 'other side'. Very manipulative!

I would imagine that this church will be -very - into the death penalty too, for even minor crimes if they can get away with it; through beheading with the blessed blade, of course. Perhaps with the reasoning that "they have strayed and are beyond redemption, so we give them another chance in the green fields of paradise" or something to that effect.
I like the idea behind it, and also the idea of the tiered paladinhood, with different levels of knowledge of the Ruth. Go to Comment

Looks like a rewrite is in order - someday :)

Germ of idea - god (?) is empowered by souls of those slain by a unique blade. Builds church around it to gather more victims, and also collect that sweet, sweet Faith. Even lies to paladins and they follow him for a while, until they find out the truth and either join anyway or are slain.

I can't say I've ever seen a trifold order of paladins before. It's very cool that three differently-aligned warriors can serve the same god AND derive powers from him.

The intro could use a little cleaning up, even just a sentence or two giving us the basic concept up front, because it's a little confusing as is. In the third paragraph, for instance, where you are talking about "perishing on the blade", I thought that you were referring to *any* blade, and that ALL deaths by a sword were in Krununth's domain.

But seriously though -- kudos for the idea. It's one I haven't seen before! Go to Comment

MysticMoon's comment on 2013-08-26 07:26 PM

I had to read through it a couple of times but I think it finally sunk in. I like the idea of an order of Paladins fighting for good while unknowingly working for an evil entity. It's the kind of twist a skilled GM of evil intent could do much with :)

The plot hooks seem like good ways to get the PCs investigating something that would otherwise remain hidden to them. A party could fight their way up the food chain after they learn the truth. Tactically minded PCs, however, might seek to turn the lowest order of Paladins against their god.

I especially like that Krunuth holds his followers in such low esteem. It's a nice touch.

i like this idea. You've given enough information to make an whole campaign and one that could keep your PC's thinking and working together. Go to Comment
