Imagi...Imagi...whut?    Articles  (Humor/ Editorial)   (Gaming - In General)

When was the last time you truly used, focused on, for any significant length of time, your imagination; your active, conscious, willful, artistic creativity, to get back in touch with that ability to appreciate the wonder that you yourself can create and bring forth, all from within yourself? Were you ever able to do that? Did you ever do that? Can you still do it? Do you do it when you game, as player or GM? Will you do it? Could this be missing from a lot of the newer, younger RPG'ers of today?

The Silent Mage

       By: Wulfhere

A powerful wizard that the PCs encounter is completely silent. He does not speak and cannot be heard as he moves. Even his spells are silent, but his magic is just as potent.

He has a tendency to summon invisible chairs, place foes in invisible boxes of force, and other "mime tricks".
