Ettercaps Traps

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
Golem Moss
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)
Roack's comment on 2016-11-05 12:42 AM
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.

Coincidentally I read this in the middle of writing a world-pack for one of my campaigns. They're a neccesity for any GM that has an even slightly exotic world. Go to Comment

I like the Idea, and I appreciate the originality, but why does it grow on once organic rock only? Perhaps the Saliva promotes grwth in the surviving lichen. Go to Comment

Something about it seems.. wrong. Nonetheless it remains beautifully done, creative, solid, and flexible (literally!) Go to Comment

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

I like it, but, I'm not so sure about the screaming of death/muderer. It could use a bit of refining, but otherwise: BRILLIANT (as usual) 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

Order of the Moonbeard

       By: valadaar

Among the assortment of organized criminals who live in the great city, few command greater fear the Moonbeard Order.

They of course do not call themselves that, but have earned the moniker from their fashion of dying their large beards with lye to produce a distinctive crescent shape running from earlobe to earlobe. This is meant as a taunt for their enemies, for it clearly outlines their throats.

They also wear garb similar to the northern tribesman, carefully tooled leather and showing multiple, colourful glyphs.

They are feared due to the intense discipline that their group maintains, due to their origins as a warrior-sect.

They serve as paid thugs, enforcers and assassins within the city, with the client simply ordering a service from the organization, not hiring an individual. Apart from making the request and providing payment in full in advance, the order completes the assignment themselves.

Their order has many moles through the organizations of the city, and more than a couple of nobles. As such, no organized move has been made against them since their chief activity is directed against other members of the crime world. It is said that their services have been useful for those in power as well, further protecting them from persecution.

Their religion holds that their time in this world is vanishingly brief, and largely unimportant except as training for the Great Battle.

The order is very utilitarian with weapons choice - they simply use the tool needed for the occasion, though not without having trained extensively with it beforehand. Daggers, garrottes, swords, bows, battle axes, polearms, wagons, even siege engines have been used to carry out their contracts.
