Still a good idea, for a saint and the society it inspires. I would like to hear more about him and his tenets. Being members and trying to clean up the citywatch would make for a challenging campaign, more focused on interaction than on action. Of course, if your PCs are rouges trying to become Made Men, the society and its saint would be ideal adversaries.
The saint does remind me of Saint Cuthbert of old D&D though. Go to Comment
"Who is Rincewind?" I do hope somebody has already told you, if not you definately need to read some Terry Prachet.
Meanwhile, this is a good character, very likely an unwilling guide to PCs who need to go to that temple. And what if familly of Silverman or of the other gentlemen seek out the only survivor of the expidition? Also, your North-America sounds as an interesting place (as in the old curse), though the absence of the USA is going to make your 20th century have a completely different history.
Any chance he is familly or named after a certain Captain Steve Rogers? Go to Comment
Wow. Simply wow. An excellent character, with many details and links to other articles, yet generic enough to get included in a lot of different settings. The best of the background is the description of his descent into evil, step by step, after disappointments and setbacks. I bet that if the Raven queen proves to be a capable ruler, and if Weldon shares a little of his alchemical expertise, many of the common people might see the sacrifice of a chouple of youths, especially obnoxious ones, a reasonable deal (though hair bleaching is going to get popular).

Wow. That is some truly wicked predator, and well descriped too. I just miss the connection to the rest of the ecology: what do the Moadi birds hunt to need such a com plicated manner of hunting, are there any species that can resist this psychic attack or even hunt the hunter? Go to Comment
Would human, or whatever sentient race you use, psychics be able to detect, resist or decieve these psionic hunters? That would make such powers very necessary for any convoy or settlement near Moadi territories. If there is a way to "break" a hive to its singular bird, that would nullify the threat greatly. Whatever species is regularly the prey, would seek any possible advantage. Go to Comment
Yikes! A very scary tree. What makes it more evil than an ironmaw or similar is it deviousness: it does not fight it's prey, but seduces it with a 'nice' treat. That 'fruit' must be a valuable commodity for poisoners. But I would not dare bet on the willpower of the PCs of my gaming group... Go to Comment
Reading this, I had a big "D'oh!" Moment: I wish I had thought of this. Modular tank building has been a feature of RTS games for a long time. I bet every Rubicon ace has his own preference on modules. Go to Comment
Indeed, this plant is likely to get associated to vampires and necromancers, an unofficial rose of the undead. That anti-coagulent will be sought after by both healers and assassins, though collecting it is likely to be a very unpopular job
Nice detail of that adage: "Pushing up the daisies" indeed! Go to Comment
Good alternative explanation for the origin of sorcerous powers. For a more convential sorceror, make the prophet a demon or a familliar, with or without a body. Only big minus point: what is the agenda of the prophet? Are they divided into factions with opposite plans? Why does mankind fit in those plans? 4/5 Go to Comment
I can not help it but this reminds me of a certain critter of a certain tv series. But otherwise a nice critter to summon. This is going to make our geomancer happy, it is often felt he loses in damage-potential of the pyromancer, this will even things a bit... Independently, it makes a great elemental defender of unspoilt nature. Go to Comment
I do not see a voting button, but I would give this scroll a full 5/5, for excellent backstory and realistic technical details, without being limited to a single setting. This would be the Mecha for a futuristic Warrant Hussein or Kim Il Sung: impressive in parades, effective against the masses, utterly useless against serious military opposition. Go to Comment
A shape-shifter of some sort has taken up a post at the War College of an enemy realm, where he secretly picks off only the most promising officer cadets, arranging bizarre accidents that gradually debase the leadership of the hostile army. In the long run, this will improve his nation's chances when the inevitable conflict comes.
As a shape-shifter he can impersonate superiors and peers alike and send the target candidate to the cleverly-prepared site of his (or her?) execution. As long as he is successful, no-one will ever know about the deception--even necromancy will only implicate the one impersonated...
