An old tree-man...
« on: December 02, 2010, 09:30:40 PM »
so old he  is rooted to the spot, finds it very hard to move, and has become hateful of humans and other creatures as a result. Ideas for making it more then a cliche and giving him indirect powers so he's not helpless?

Hopefully this isn't a cliche in itself, but what about giving him the power to absorb life energy through his roots? Hated, youthful humans, more hated the younger they are, become weak and lethargic after only a few minutes within a certain radius. Spend too long within his sphere of influence and watch the years begin to accumulate on your own body. So he engages any visitors in conversation, biting back the bitterness and smiling stiffly until his victims realize what they have lost by coming too close for too long. And then, when he sees the realization dawn upon their newly wrinkled faces, he cackles with glee.

The old man, grey-haired, braid hanging down.
He is clothed in faded brown robes.
His craggy face is turned up, bathed in moonlight;
He looks for his goddess to smile upon him.

It's coming into focus now-soon I can make  him into a submission.
