This may need to be a scroll, and it could certainly use an expansion. A change of title may be nice as well, considering Ettercaps aren't that well known, especially since we don't all play D&D. Well that, or you could put them up in the life forms, preferably with a twist. Go to Comment
This is a great idea, but it needs to be fleshed out a little more. Unlike our esteemed ancient friend, I think the Dhul'Gholam are actually the prime interest here. I think they have the potential to effect greater influence on the lives of the golem's creators (and certainly are the more likely candidates for player interaction. I think this may be better off as a post about the Dhul'Gholam themselves - the moss simply being their noted genesis.
I love it. Personally I would question the all-pervasive time, but that's merely my own preferences. It could use a little embellishing on the Waking/Staring Dreamers, so 4.8/5, But I'll round it off to 5/5 Go to Comment
It sound too me more like it has a MAJOR enchantment of fascination, which would just make it all the more appealing to a wizard.
I can see one of my party members becoming obsessed with this, he's the sorcerer and de facto leader, it will really hamper them. Go to Comment
Could start an ogre religion too, which only makes it more dangerous, not only do PCs have to deal with a big ogre that will beat them with a lampost, they have to deal with his fanatic ogre worshipers. Go to Comment
I was planning on adding to it, but I'm short on ideas at the moment. If you have any, please let me know. As for the Alishtar/Emera part it's very campaign specific, and for all I know anyone here may be gaming it sometime. I'll try to link it to a setting post ASAP though. Go to Comment

An example of a mythological worldview misinterpreting scientific practices occurred in Africa, where an aid organization, focusing on slowing and stabilizing population growth, distributed abacuses with red and white beads corresponding to a woman's menstrual cycle. Women were instructed to move one bead a day, only having intercourse on days represented by a white bead. However, the experiment failed, and the population grew in the households using the abacus. The women believed the abaci were magical, and that they would be protected from pregnancy by moving a white bead into the place of the red bead before intercourse.
