I think the academy mightb ecome a mere pawn if it sell it services too often and does not show some backbone - its voice no longer commanding respect but rather provoking a smirk or frown. Go to Comment

EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-28 02:02 PM
Could it be something more than a gator? I wouldn't go intothe "horror from beyond" category, but imagine the terror when the PCs finally put down a poor gator, only to have a THING emerge in a gush of sewage behind them just as they were about to rejoice in their victory. Perhaps some tentacle thing connected all the bodies of the murdered who were tossed into the sewer into a single malicious mass, or ... anyone saw Dogma? The Golgothan Shit Demon! Go to Comment

Now, this is an example of how an assassin can be written well... now, Scras, you wouldn't mind a bit more of personality? Go to Comment

Don't forget places to waste cash, man! Theatres/gladiatorial arenas, a noble casino or two, an extra-fancy auction house...
the major banks should also be housed in the vicinity, perhaps this area of town could be surrounded by a second city wall, creating a true forbidden city... Go to Comment

While a love interest can spice up a character, it should by no means be mandatory...
The enemy here is not a person, but rather the turns of events he must face. His pride, loneliness and the compromises he must make are the enemies to be faced, not a man in a black cloak.

Interesting... so this is a way for two members of the party to meet, yes? A rogue and a mage, on the run together? Go to Comment

A munchkin's dream - a psionic warrior mage serpent githyanki whatever... ack. And I though learning to pronounce stuff like 'phosphoenolpyruvatecarboxykinase' was tough.

All he's missing now is ... style. A reason to exist. A motivation. Playability. Background. Background. Background.

What he does not need is a +5 Vorpal Sword of Ultimate Killing and Shooting Lightning out of Several Orifices. He does not need to be immune to all energy attacks and everything. He does not need to make me *yawn*...
Where was I? Yes, we all can make up a super powerful bad guy who keeps Cthulu as a lap dog and eats candized archangels for breakfast.
With a fraction of the power and some spark of imagination, he might be a nice character? This way? At leastyou will draw a lot of replies, like many of the less-than-perfect posts do. Go to Comment

EchoMirage's comment on 2004-12-26 08:34 AM
Well - some sorces make it look like a lion centraur, while others depict it as a serpent with a human head... though this overlaps with the DnD Yuan-Ti... confusing, right?
And yes, add a halo of evil, because all Lamia are evil for evil's sake.

EchoMirage's comment on 2005-01-19 02:36 AM
*sad grin* No. Veng is only interesting as the answer to the question: "How far can I stretch the rules?"
He does NOThave any personality, and would make a poor appearance in a novel. Now, I could think up a character in GURPS who was able to make 132 melee attacks per round, or to cause armor-ignoring damage without fear of retaliation, and that over large areas... for a meager 150 points, mind you! We're not showing off here who can make the most uber bad guy, we try to provide interesting personalities to incorporate into our games. Go to Comment

This is vastly original... from the 'kill the wizard' clichee to a race against time - one surprising twist after another...

I certainly will try to use it and give credits to you ... after all is done. Go to Comment

I guess I will hold my vote back to see if vlad does change it.

Cursed weapons are a staple of fantasy, especially berserker swords. It will not be easy to make an exceptional one. Go to Comment

Vampires. Drow. Assassins. Combinations of those three. All suffer from being considered "cool" by the masses.

It would actually be interesting to PLAY the kid once he grows up.
"Hey, boy,whatcha good for?"
"Well, I learned elven swordplay from Tiramisu the ranger, the high art of Summoning from Methaqualon the Warlock and the ancient tongues from Sclerosis the Sage!"
"No, anything of use?"
"Well, I'm good at patching up wounds, if you think that might prove useful..."
"Great! A medic ya'll be!"

Imagine what situations he might get into - he knows well how to fend of the Soul Devourers of Xrt!Bk'y-y, but when something else catches his soul, like a girl, he'll be like a fish out of water.

"Whatwill we do today, uncle?"
"Farming, boy."
"But we did that yesterday!"
"Well, and so we will. Today and tomorrow and the day after that..."
"Boooo-ring. I will try to summon an earth elemental to plow the fields for us, and we'll go off adventuring, ok?" Go to Comment

A god must have imagination to create, and what is imagination but a waking dream?

Come, learn from the greatest mage of all, who lies dormant in the chambers of the temple...and bring back the dream t'was lost...

Very good one 5/5 Go to Comment

Foot Coral. It attatches to a foot like moss, almost gluing itself to an organism. It gets its food supply from the ground, and does not leech off the host in any way. It is not a malignant organism, and is entirely harmless. But it only grows on human feet, and even then, never on the left foot. An organism that it grows on can feel touch through the coral, but not pain. Removal of the coral is painless, but why would you want to?

Texturally, if fells like a dry, non slimy amoeba.
