As Kassil said so many years ago: He must be an unnerving and somewhat intimidating person to be around for some.

A handy minor NPC, which could be used as both villain or friend. Go to Comment

Mebbee they're regulars who go anonymous to say bad things :P

Anywho - Just because something is similar to something you've seen on TV doesnt mean its a direct copy. And it certainly doesnt mean its childish, just because something like it was on a chidrens show.

Fairy tales have killing, magic and betrayal. Is killing, magic or betrayal childish?

Personally, I think its a pretty good item - 4/5 Go to Comment
Tarquin
NPCs  (Major)   (Mystical)
Shadoweagle's comment on 2003-12-24 08:30 AM
Well, his lust for power and knowledge is motivation enough to impart on some 'epic quests' or whatever, with the desire to become more experienced on his journeys, perhaps steal a soul or two of the foes he comes across. And yeah, Part of the motivation WAS from Raistlin (perhaps my favourite book character of all-time). I wanted to make a character that could be as cold and calculating as him, but first I did not want to directly copy the typical Raistlin 'black mage' idea, and second, I wanted more of a twist with this character, hence the soul-stealing and knowledge of the mechanics of souls etc...
He is my character designed for betrayal and manipulation ^_^ Im sorry, I dont think my description explains him well enough, plus the fact that he was brought from a different RP place made me not want to shuffle around too much stuff.

If you wanted to see the pic I used for him, go to the following: http://www.epilogue.net/cgi/database/art/view.pl?id=23777

A brilliant pic. I usually find a picture, and then create a character using the picture as the centerpiece. Go to Comment

Mmmmmmm, Perfect in that shes weak, annoying, arrogant and childish - Just like a great character should be! :D

Loved ones accidentally murdered by thieves is slightly cliche in my books, but all in all, not too bad.

Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Shadoweagle's comment on 2013-05-05 01:11 AM
I know it's not really an item made for general use in a game, but this does seem somewhat overpowered nonetheless.
I feel there should also be something more in place to prevent someone from giving this weapon to another, who doesn't know the backstory or the price of the weapon, and telling them, "Visualize the foe, all you need do is want them dead and they will die; and you will be the hero!"
Or something along those lines.

Either way, this is still useful for backstory/lore. Go to Comment
Corvus
NPCs  (Mythic/ Historical)   (Mystical)
Shadoweagle's comment on 2004-07-05 07:13 AM
Hm, I think its time I post on this character. He's somewhat legendary around the citadel :P

I love it :D Corvus is the perfect explaination for any item that you just can't think up a background for - I might have to use him in the future ;)
Obviously, he is not a character designed to be played by anyone, and if he is still alive, rarely should he be put in any roleplay - but he can be mentioned many times in any roleplay ^^
5/5, of course. Go to Comment
Doom Tea

Agreed! It should be the next quest: Doom Tea! Everybody put their own take on it!

It's new to me; though i'm not as versed in fantasy stuff as some others! I like it! Very insidious! Go to Comment
Bronze Visions
Items  (Home/ Personal)   (Magical)
Shadoweagle's comment on 2015-01-27 07:58 PM
Kinda cool, and some nice imagery with the waves of water. Probably best as a 'single, quest use' kind of item before it accidentally gets broken by the GM's will.

Bloody Raflond, the cheeky bugger!

I love this book. Anything to confound players is great in my eyes! Go to Comment
Sword of Belwar
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Shadoweagle's comment on 2015-01-27 07:46 PM
For all it's simplicity, I actually think this is great, and could easily be added into a game to confound a player who is getting a little bit too big for his britches. Strolen's thought of having the GM do the rolls and keeping the stats a secret is a great idea! Go to Comment
Slavina Plate
Items  (Armor)   (Magical)
Shadoweagle's comment on 2015-01-27 07:44 PM
This is quite basic, but has it's roleplaying uses. The general theme i'm seeing in my time traveling is: More info wanted! Go to Comment

As said above - We need flesh!

I'm stepping back in time! These are perfectly fine lockpicks, but today's Strolenite craves more! MORE! MORE!! A richer back story would be fantastic! Who is O.N!?!? Go to Comment

Shadoweagle's comment on 2013-09-02 03:37 AM
There can be no score for sub number 1, except a 5. As far as I see it, without this first sub to start this site, there would be no other subs, so this is responsible for all the content within the citadel.

The next quest should totally be for all participants to use this idea seed and expand it however they wish into their own sub. Go to Comment

Balance Rather than Conflict

       By: Spark

A world based not on light and dark in conflict, but light and dark in balance. A world governed by a giver and a taker, rather than a creator and a destroyer. A world where evil is as much a corruption of light as it is darkness. Conflict arises out of a will to upset the balance.
