Evil mischief with gremlins

By:

My group had to locate the hidden entrance to an abandoned Gnomish city.  They searched for two days before they found what they thought was the entrance.  It was the entrance…., to Kiddieland, the Gnomish equivalent of a modern funhouse for children.  Evil, nasty super-gremlins had infested the place and had warped much of the magic there to terrorize suckers, er, characters who found the way in.

My group had to locate the hidden entrance to an abandoned Gnomish city.  They searched for two days before they found what they thought was the entrance.  It was the entrance…., to Kiddieland, the Gnomish equivalent of a modern funhouse for children.  Evil, nasty super-gremlins had infested the place and had warped much of the magic there to terrorize suckers, er, characters who found the way in.  There was a moon room with reverse gravity that turned on and off when the PC’s passed a certain point in the room.  Great fun for children until the gremlins removed the padding.  There was the equivalent of a slide with potato sacks to ride on ending in piles of feathers.  Add spears, a brick wall, hot tar, something weird on each one.  Dodge ball with goblin-golems.  The PC’s get little plastic balls.  The goblin-golems get big rocks.  The winner gets to go {in a ‘Rock’ like voice} ‘One on One with the Great One.’  ‘Can you smell-ell-ell-ell, what the Gnome…, is cooking!  A roller coaster-Indiana Jones mine cart ride complete with no brakes, having to lean to one side to avoid tipping, the gremlins attempting to spoke the mine cart, and the obligatory giant boulder was an engrossing 20 minutes of sheer pleasure.  Great fun.  Think of fun rides that you have been on.  Or things you’ve seen at fairs.  And then twist them evilly with gremlins, throw the party inside, and smile wickedly as the party figures out that the child’s ride is more like Child’s Play 10 - Chucky’s Revenge!

Could even make it a twisted part of your nemesis lair. Who says all evil overloards have to have torture dungeons?

Could take any one idea and use it seperately as well. Just the reverse gravity room with spikes on the ceiling/floor would be very bad for the players health.

The temptation of a lone ore cart just sitting at the entrance of long cave. Perhaps have a rope connected to it for a means of self propelling by a pulley system so the characters have the illusion of being in control. Throw in a hill and suddenly reaching the end of rope leaves them out of control and at the mercy of the track that can end up wherever.

What keeps the creators from coming back? Why do the gremlins bother with it? Do people come there often enough to keep them entertained? A lit bit of background for the place would go a long way.

I found the one paragraphs difficult to read actually. It seems entertaining but that along with the movie comments turns me off this. It seems like a bunch of mives were slammed together to get this idea. it has potential but it needs work, to me.

Cold Comfort

       By: Murometz

Cold Comfort is a long-sword of star-steel, its blade giving off a wan, blueish light. Its grip is wrapped tightly in snow-serpent hide, and its pommel bears a single opalescent gemstone.

This blade is enchanted in such a way, that whoever wields it, begins to fall completely and irrevocably "in love" with the weapon. This love does not manifest itself as the expected reverence and bond formed between any warrior and his weapon, but as a deeper, truer love, one has for a soul-mate of the same species! The longer the wielder carries Cold Comfort the stronger and more disturbing this love becomes, and only the most powerful of magicks can potentially break the sword's insidious spell. The blade's owner will even speak to and coo to the weapon, convinced that the sword understands and returns this epic love.

If the blade's wielder somehow loses the weapon or has it taken away, they will become inconsolable, and will predictably go to "ends of the earth and back" to retrieve it at any cost. Such is the weapon's curse that even separation from it does not damper the feelings the owner has for the sword. Legends tell of several distraught and mind-addled knights who even years after losing the blade, still wander the country-side searching for their lost love. And woe be to the "new lover" if and when they find him or her.
