And another entry! Excellent work!

Coming up is bishop. Ranking priests can be interesting people - their power may be very different from secular power, but there nonetheless. Or, perhaps in a fantasy or futuristic world, something different entirely. In the Middle Ages, some bishops were great warriors. How about mech pilots in the future or powerful sorcerers in other worlds?
I follow Johnn's gaming eZine and most of the time it's no big deal since I rarely if ever have time/group to game with anymore. There are quite a few things that have tickled my muse and made me want to write something for it, even if it never panned out.

Challenge 1: The Genial Monster

Write an NPC from a traditional monster race, and that NPC is a non-combatant. Johnn's example is a group of murder-hobos who befriended a gelatinous cube. The monster needs to be a monster, and not a friendly humanoid or demi-human, so orcs, ogres, trolls, etc, are right out. Crack open the Monstrous Manual and actually find something weird or ridiculous, like a grick, grell, mimic, cloaker, etc.

Challenge 2: Skill Items

The item adds to a specific skill, such as boots for stealth or tracking, a hat for spot checks, and a saddle for riding skill. The obvious stuff is too easy, and things that add to murder power or armor class should be avoided. For more interesting items, the item in question is known, so no one is surprised when the guy with the hat embroidered with the third eye finds things. Why you wearing a thief hat? I like it man, suits my face. Yeah, a thief face

Challenge 3: New Location template

A. Method of Defense
B. Style of Governance
C. Local Economy (what does the location do)
D. Local Legend/Interesting Hook
D2 - add name of nearby point of interest related to hook, rumor, or gossip
E. Resident (who lives there)
E2 - sample resident

you should be able to just add them when creating/updating your subs.

If you want Regions, then we can do this too, but there should be a good volume of subs first.

eg. https://strolen.com/regions/World_of_Neyathis

It is a mind blowing piece of speculative sociology. It is  a difficult read and I needed to read it twice to fully grasp what he was saying .So worth the difficult read. Don't let this languish, it just might blow your mind too.

I had my eye on it and eye-scanned it actually but then decided to leave it for another day. I don't really have a longish one that I want looked at now though. All of them have pretty much got at least 3 votes and the ones that haven't I'm okay with the response I got.
