It is traditional for two warlike countries to each give their first-born royal prince as a hostage to each other to prevent war. One of the princes has been murdered, and the PCs have a few days to rescue the prince in the other country to save him from being executed and a bloodthirsty war from breaking out. View

Since the local baron's wife died, to keep himself happy it is Christmas ( or the equivalent festival in your game world) every day in his castle. View

A certain country allows most civilians to carry weapons, but only if they are potentially deadly. Pepper sprays, stun guns/tasers, batons, and dart guns are banned. And if you kill someone and are not acquitted at trial, the punishment is to be hanged the day after you were found guilty. The message here is that if you want to go armed, you had better be prepared to risk killing someone and being executed unless it was clearly self defense. When it comes to combat spells, again, only the highly dangerous can legally be cast with the same possible consequences if cast wrongly. View

Many weapons buried with the dead are buried for a very good reason as they have had a potent curse placed on them making them dangerous or near-useless to the living. View

A certain tribe in a valley believes that the soul remains trapped in the body after death and is aware of it. So they treat their dead as if they are alive, talking to them and keeping them at home. They are used to the stink and for some reason are also immune to the diseases that this practise causes but outsiders are not so lucky. View

Tannia Castle-the Outer Limits By: Cheka Man
   1 Week, 2 Days, 12 Hours, 17 Minutes ago

Like a grim eagle upon it's nest, the great black block of Tannia Castle looks down upon the city of the same name. Despite the fact that some of those brought within it's walls never come out again, the castle is still looked upon well by most of the city's inhabitants, a place of protection rather then a place of terror.

30 Sceptres By: Cheka Man
   1 Week, 4 Days, 11 Hours, 53 Minutes ago

Thirty Scepters, some of them items of great magical powers, others mere symbols of office, and one or two that are more a bane then a boon to their owners.

30 or more Inferior Swords By: Cheka Man
   1 Week, 6 Days, 16 Hours, 46 Minutes ago

Not every sword robbed from a tomb, picked up on the battlefield or brought in some out of the way shop is going to be a Master Sword of wonder. Far from it....Here are thirty or more swords that lack that certain something...Some have problems with them in combat, others are good weapons but cause other problems, legal or otherwise, for their owners.

30 Mountain Encounters By: Cheka Man
   2 Weeks, 1 Day, 16 Hours, 31 Minutes ago

Seven highly magical and dangerous blades of the Ocean, all of them in the hands of the green-tail merpeople of the shallow seas.

30 Hidden Weapons By: Cheka Man
   2 Weeks, 6 Days, 19 Hours, 3 Minutes ago

Whilst there may be times and places where it is perfectly legally acceptable to swing a sword around and other such weapons, at many times in history weapons have either been limited to the nobility only (as in the Japan of the Tokugawa Shoguns) or outright banned for almost everybody (as in most Western countries today.) Even in more weapon-friendly fantasy worlds, there may be times and places where weapons are banned for most people (such as at the court of a noble, or in certain taverns whose owners really don't want sword fights in their establishment.) With this is mind, here are 30+ items that can be used as weapons.

7 Types of Rulers By: Cheka Man
   3 Weeks, 1 Day, 12 Hours, 19 Minutes ago

So the PCs need the help of the ruler/s do they? It makes a big difference depending on what kind of rulers they are appealing to. What works well in one case may not work well in another.

30 Lawyers By: Cheka Man
   3 Weeks, 2 Days, 13 Hours, 25 Minutes ago

The actions of PCs can often land them in court, and having a good lawyer to represent them can mean the difference between freedom and a death sentence.

30 Soldiers By: Cheka Man

30 Problems With Swords By: Cheka Man

7 Medics By: Cheka Man
   4 Months, 1 Week, 4 Days, 1 Hour, 35 Minutes ago

Whenever there is conflict or disease you will find medical men and women trying to heal the sick and the maimed. Most are perfectly good people, but by no means not all of them. Whilst many live to serve and do their best for those who they treat, a minority will harm or even kill them, accidentally or otherwise.


7 Canyons By: Cheka Man

Seven twisty canyons for the PCs to pass through and explore on their way to carry out their main quest.

There are no scrolls in this world, but there are crystals of various sizes, colors and qualities. Every spell has a requirement on the amount and characteristics of crystals that must be held in order for the spell to be cast, crystals which would shatter should the cast be successful. Now picture a land where crystals are scarce except for high concentrations of them in specific spots throughout the land. A number of scenarios could occur, such as benign companies selling the mined valuable for cheap, a region in constant magic-intense war zone, an area of crystals in the quicksand, or an undiscovered patch next to a town...
