Snowflake

By:

Snowflake is a white-scaled dragon that has gone slightly mad: not only does she like people (not for lunch,that is!), but she wants them to be happy and fine, even if it is not to their liking…

Appearance:

A white-scaled dragon. Legendary, but almost never seen, for she is too shy.

Background:

History unknown. For the last few hundred years regularly performing for ‘the poor little people’. She became a legend in its own right, known by most children.

Roleplaying Notes:

If you are a dragon and like people, that is a serious problem. The best solution may be to help from afar, letting them have at least some joy in their short lives.

Snowflake knows only one thing worth sharing: the joys of winter. So, whenever she wakes up, and there is not enough snow, she simply makes it.

Effect: in random intervals (let’s say 3d20 years), a random city or village will be visited by the mythical Snowflake. Be it summer or winter, a snowstorm comes and covers everything in knee-deep wonderful white. ;)

Is a nice whimsical dragon for throwing a red herring on the players. Thier knee-jerk reaction to a sudden and mysterious winter decending on the land will be to seek the forces of ultimate evil at the center of the storm. I can only wonder at their puzzlement when they reach the village at the storm's center and find snow men and sled races.

I am curious on how snowflake handles the disagreement of the farmer whose crops she freezes, merchants whose goods are snow bound, and other unwanted side effects of winter. Pay them for thier troubles out of her horde? Eat the grumblers? This would be an interesting and unusual puzzle for the players to clear up.

Manfred, this should be a really great enterpraise for beginning characters after hardly survived battle with goblins, to come to the city to have some rest and meet the Snowfall - maybe they start to believe that their game is only meant to let the Game Master have some fun / but not as US means that /...
You should than switch play mode slightly to LARP, maybe ???

Nice. She probebly kills a few people without meaning to.

Good solid idea for some humour relief and a red herring. But a "white dragon" is a bit too DnD'ish for me... Aaand now I see how old this actually is;)
Glad you're keeping the oldies Manfred.

Not exactly DnD, but almost there. But white is a good color for such a dragon.

And: you have to keep even the oldies, especially if they are useable.

Censeo ergo sum. I vote therefore I am. This submission is proof that not ALL of the original submissions were that bad.

We like to keep them for sentimental reasons. Thank you!

Is the snow permenant? That is, will it last until it melts, or will it disappear the next day, leaving no trace of its existence? If it did disappear like that, the farmers would still be happy.

2002, wow, I didn't realize the site stretched that far back. I thought '03 was the starting year?

The accounts differ. According to the venerable Slemastene, the Citadel was founded in the spring of the Year of the Fly, after the battle of Remadrin. However, the sage Tracan notes...

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.
