You type the command into the console. "Insufficient Guineapigs" the computer responds. Baffled, you retype the command. "Insufficient Guineapigs" the computer replies again. You decide you should start smaller, with a simpler command. "Insufficient Guineapigs" What does cycling the spaceship's airlock have to do with a now-extinct Peruvian rodent? View

Fedolf, the notorious headsman of Iddland, is known as much for his beheadings as for his operatic arias of doom. A tower of power, standing nearly seven feet tall, and weighing in at almost four hundred pounds, Fedolf strikes fear in all onlookers, especially when he dons his executioner's hood, and goes shirtless, wielding his gigantic double-bladed pole-axe, on his way to the headsman's block. He possesses a beautiful singing voice, and will often send off his charges into the next life, while belting out baritone dirges and antiquated arias, usually involving death, destiny, and duty, in heavy doses.

At regular intervals, a god takes control of your world's weather. Choose the gods at random each turn of the interval and begin applying their effects subtly. Their power will depend on the strength of those who worship them. For civilised people, worship of a god actually wanes during that god's month in an effort to reduce their potential destructive effect. View

In some virtual forums going AFK is the equivalent of passing out drunk on the couch at a fraternity party. Everyone from hackers to everyday participants will take shots at you, and you can expect your avatar to look very different when you get back. Hopefully you will notice quickly. View

101 Player Character Quirks By: SamVDW
   1 Day, 4 Hours, 10 Minutes ago

Character quirks can be little exercises in roleplaying that make things fun for the player. They can also have major game implications if the character is faced with a dilemma where two of their values come in conflict. Here are 101 player character quirks that can be used in many different types of settings. These quirks vary from small quirks (small effect on game play) to big quirks (potentially large effect on game play).

Swamps 101 By: Silveressa
   4 Days, 11 Hours, 20 Minutes ago

The classic swamp, filled with a purveying dampness and faint mist. Clouds of buzzing biting insects drift over vast expanses of soggy marsh and brackish water. Lone trees tilt towards the sky, struggling against the purveying rot.

Swamplands are a unique environment and therefore offer you unique game play options.

This article will give you ideas on how to bring your swamps to life and make the most of these interesting settings - regardless of how powerful the PCs are.

30 Chinese Archaic Names By: Moonlake
   5 Days, 16 Hours, 48 Minutes ago

An companion to my 101 Chinese Modern Names sub, but for an ancient setting. This is an etymology centred piece with more extended entries compared to the earlier one which is in list form. Spelling is based on Mandarin unless otherwise indicated (the other variation offered is Cantonese which is easier to pronounce given that it is spelt from the English alphabet, at least the HK version that I’m using, rather than the Chinese pinyin)

Attack on Titan/Tales of Symphonia Campaign Hybrid By: SplatterBox
   5 Days, 18 Hours, 30 Minutes ago

People live inside a series of walls. Outside the walls, there are Titans (giants, unless you actually want to use the Titan, which are fetching powerful). There's a spell that needs breaking to return everything to normal size. That can only be done by collecting the elemental devil arms. Hot dang.

Primal Essence, Primals, and the Creation of the Realms By: Arracor
   1 Week, 6 Days, 17 Hours, 33 Minutes ago

An origin story for the main setting I build in. There are aspects missing, and certain things need proper names. In addition, there are related topics I'll write about in other, related submissions, and the whole setting has a 'phase 2' (or sequel setting) in a hypothetical future where certain, massively world-changing events take place. I'll list related submissions again at the bottom, as actual links.

Halimath the Wanderer By: Tusserk
   2 Weeks, 1 Day, 11 Hours, 4 Minutes ago

"Would you prefer I run my sword through your spine and leave you laying here for the wolves to gnaw upon or to just burn you alive with my magic? I would prefer to collect what I am after without the use of violence, but make no mistake I will kill you to remove this trinket from the hands of humanity."

How about a dragon how cheerfully rules over a kingdom; his people all know him for what he is, and dragons are looked upon as wise and benevolent creatures. Dragonslayers from other kingdoms coming to free it from 'tyranny' are likely to get beaten to death by peasants with cast iron skillets.
