I dont know how I overlooked this submission! I like the premise of the adoption of the illigetimates, but I can see there being some hostility on the part of some more paranoid nobles, since Ironspirit has ties to almost every bloodline, how could they have any sense of loyalty to their bloodline over the others?
This is a solid idea, though the whole flashing lights depending on the factor of seal breakage seems a bit over the top for me, seeming more like a sword powered disco light show. A magical verson of peace-tieing swords. Not quite as effective on maces, bows, and other weapons that do not have sheaths or scabbards Go to Comment
Something like half of this posting didnt make it from the Scholars Canvas to the front page. I had the effects of trying to repair or exploit these dang things as well as several plot hooks. I'm going to retype it later. Please dont vote on this until then.
I feel disgusted.
addenum - 03/01/06 - completed the post, feel free to vote and comment. I restored as much as I could from memory, but I feel that something vital was lost in the retype. Go to Comment
I can imagine this massive weapon, its formerly pristine white head now flaking and splitting, with the cracks stained crimson and black from the gore of those it has slain. No man alive can now carry it into battle, but perhaps one day another will rise to take the hammer. Kind of a Sword in the Stone sorta deal, but much more brutal, and much more ugly.
Just for the record, I am never going to play NWN, just like the Captain isnt going to play Dungeons and Dragons. This post is too short and as Mourngrymn says it needs a better description, and backstory. It is too open ended and lacking in detail.
The best of the trio, the gloves have some promise, though i think that each item granting regeneration is a bit much, a play could easily swath themselves in repellant troll bit magic items and end up with +3 or more regeneration a turn. Too stackable, and lacking in detail.
It is one thing to leave a submission open ended for adoption into anyone's home campaign, it is entirely another to take something from a video game and drop it in with the most minor of modification. Go to Comment
A definate improvement. The backstory gives the rest of a feel for the item, where it came from and the reason it was created. In accordance, I have increased my vote for this it from a 2 to a 3. Go to Comment
What a viciously nasty little beastie Maggot! It is vile, revolting, and its lifestyle is both well documented as it is disgusting. That being said, I like it, both it's plausible mode of feeding and reproduction as well as its exploitation by the Quarsooth military. Go to Comment
A small group of men stares intensely at something. Coming nearer, you see puppies, obviously still young, as they are small and only learn to walk. Cute as they are, the men look serious and exchange a comment here and there, making their mother nervous. But one man keeps her somewhat calm, while looking with others on the little ones.
The puppies are a completely new dog breed. The breeder hopes for better characteristics, the other men are mostly hunters and other dog-fanciers, that were called or came from own interest. If all looks well, they will have business. But now, they are just watching.
