I would be very picky on the term projectile, so simply falling/ jumping would not count. You have to be fired or thrown.
Depends on how rules-lawery you want to go.
As for securing the ring, sure, but don't forget :)

Winged helm would quite well with it. :) Go to Comment

My intent was basically up to and including the impact, the wearer would be uninjured, even if he hit the tip of a spear or the like. Once they stopped moving, subsequent damage from the locale- acid, fire, dragon chewing, would then apply.

MORE LIKE THE RING OF THE EPIC BADASS! I can think of like, 28374 uses for this thing. So can everyone, I'm sure.

The bit about it being loose is sort of awkward though. If it's meant to balance the potentially game-breaking power of the ring, my players would just tie it to their fingers or something. If I used this, I'd make it an activation power, so the PC wouldn't be immune to all traps forever. Or a pair of rings. NO! A giant helmet that looks like a loaf of bread with rocketman fins on the top or a giant eagle face or something.

Damn, that's cool!

P.S. I feel like this is the perfect use of the 100-word submission concept. Just a great little idea, stripped down and presented in its most usable form. Go to Comment

The beauty of this is that the bearer cannot exactly control where he/she is going to land. If they are abusing it's power, perhaps its time for the dice to put them a few squares over . . . into the middle of a group of (now incredibly pissed-off) enemies. Go to Comment

I need one of these rings. They'd be very useful in siege situations- you'd be able to get soldiers inside the castle easily, since they'd survive (probably) the catapult ride.

What wold happen, though, if some dramatic-entrance-ruiner took out his spear or sword or something and tried to stab the bada** as he came down? Would bracing the spear against the floor work, or would the spear guy have to stab the approaching person? I'd assume that the bracing wouldn't work, though. And stabbing would be hard to do with also avoiding the projectile.

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

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
