Ratwood Tree    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)

The hardest part about dealing with a ratwood tree is by the time you find it, there are dozens more you haven't found yet.

Edotown, The City in a Briefcase.    Locations  (City)   (CyberSpace)

Moderators of the wildly popular VORPG, Polyworld, had no idea that one of their most famous cites Edotown had been stolen and for quite some time. No wonder there were so many complaints and bug reports coming in.

Seeking Vengeance; Adventurers Needed    Plots  (Hired)   (Single-Storyline)

A man approaches you with a proposition; a cult that seeks to only protect the weak; plots mingling and causing destruction.

Death, it seems, shall stalk the land of Merthia tonight- unless, of course, the PCs can stop it.

Oh Give Me Wings To Fly    Items  (Other)   (Magical)

To fly. One of man's oldest and fondest dreams. To soar above like a bird, for the joy of it, to explore, or to strike at one's enemies. It is only natural that magic would be turned towards granting this wish.

Spiritskin Drum    Items  (Art and Music)   (Magical)

A well-loved and somewhat crudely hand-crafted tribal drum owned by the Tribal Half-Orc, Somnak. It is said that Somnak possessed the ability to call upon the spirit of any creature whose skin was pulled over the drum to aid him and his allies in battle, as well as curse his foes.

Efeterthrop’s Pyrus Patch, Toll Gate    Locations  (TransWorld)   (Forest/ Jungle)

In a world where teleportation magic doesn’t exist, the opportunity to travel a few days journey in moments is beyond value. With only a simple toll, you can be practically on the doorstep of Nizul-tibi before you know it.

Maw of the Daemons    Locations  (Other)   (Underground)

How long they carried him through those back tunnels, illuminated only by the flickering of torchlight, he had no idea. Then light seemed to explode when they reached the massive chamber. All around, unbelievably large red crystals captured the light of the flames and seemed to multiply it.

The Sea of Sand    Locations  (Regional)   (Desert)

There are few places more treacherous than pools of quicksand save for a sea of quicksand. Those who tread here quickly find that the lust for adventure or coin might leave them with a sinking feeling of despair.

A troupe of players has made a rare stop at the local fair. There are plays, fortune tellers, games of "chance", and more! Great fun for all.

The City of Efeterthorp    Locations  (City)   (Mountains)

Efeterthrop is one of those places that may well be a bottomless pit of sin and squalor to most who speak of it, but to those that live and raise their own there they can see no freer place in existence. Ironically, cloaked behind a fierce sense of freedom is a strict social code none break thoughtlessly.

       By: Scrasamax

Purple deer have begun to appear near the ruins of a fallen city, or other place of power. Hunting the deer is absurdly easy, as their coloration makes them easy to see. The heros prepare a feast from a freshly killed deer find out several hours later that the meat of the new purple deer is poisonous. This can range from cramps and vomiting to the truly sinister and lethal.
