30 Disasters!
Plots  (Event)   (Encounter)
Silveressa's comment on 2008-04-29 08:28 PM
Interesting stuff that could be easily worked into any campaign, although the gm may have to deal with pc's spending several hours investigating an otherwise random natural event (such as #1) convinced it's part of some grander plot hook. (although that could also be an advantage if they have noting else planned.) Go to Comment
The Nempori
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Space)
Silveressa's comment on 2008-12-19 08:48 AM
An interesting sub race to toss into any space game that needs a little "spice" to liven it up.

I would like to see more detail added as to why they are so insulting to other species during first contact, (beyond insulting their looks anyway) but over all nicely detailed. Go to Comment

ISL 9000
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Combat)
Silveressa's comment on 2008-12-29 11:57 AM
I agree with Manfred, expanding this sub to include a rough description of what the weapon looks like & how it functions would help bring more life into this piece.

Also given the weight of iron spikes (we're talking railroad spike sizes here I assume?) I'm not sure such a weapon designed to launch droves of these would weigh little enough to be man portable by most gnomes or humans without extreme strength.

Also the name reminded me a little of the bfg 9000 from doom, and not really fitting with the steampunk level, although that could just be me. Go to Comment
Tohm Bones

Silveressa's comment on 2011-01-18 10:06 AM

Another lost gem worth returning to the forefront, (especially in light of the recent quest poll) While not overly detailed, it serves the purpose of "local color" for a magi institution flawlessly, and makes any rather un-noteworthy academy suddenly very memorable,.

Silveressa's comment on 2008-04-28 09:42 PM
Excellent villain, reminds me a slight bit of Jack the Ripper. He;s the perfect guy to work in as a "trusted ally" of the PC's or perhaps their regular Dr. (Before the fire occurs of course) Go to Comment
Oni, the Sorrow of Torment
NPCs  (Minor)   (Criminal/Espionage)
Silveressa's comment on 2008-05-17 04:40 AM
Delightfully evil, and best of all; he can work in nearly any setting that has a dash of the occult. An update to link to the torture implements codex would be nice small addition. Go to Comment
A Poisoner's Almanac
Items  (Potion)   (Magical)
Silveressa's comment on 2008-05-14 05:00 PM
Fast Food Soda Machine Ice

This one's a real world poison (at least in the USA) that is believed to be behind many of the cases of mild food poisoning. The ice inside many fast food restaurants soda machines has been found to contain more ecol i bacteria than the toilet bowl water in the same establishment.

In it's standard form the ice crystals look transparent with small chunks, the bacteria within being virtually orderless and flavorless, with the sickness onsetting 1-8 hours after consumption.

In small doses a beverage chilled by this ice can cause stomach cramps and mild nausea followed by loose stools and gaseous bloating.

In more severe concentrations the effects can be vomiting, dizziness, and explosive diarrhea Go to Comment

A fascinating NPC, and one that coudl easily prompt the more good hearted adventures to take it upon themsevles to either heal or avenege, especially once they realize the mans capability and how his gratitude could be reapaid...

Silveressa's comment on 2011-01-09 03:19 AM

A nice variation on the "Pern" theme, and with more adaptability and variety, making it much more exciting to use as a campaign setting over the long term.

I do hope to see this updated and expanded upon someday, despite the many years long pause hiatus it's endured.

Silveressa's comment on 2009-01-03 06:44 PM
A nice predatory creature for plains and swamp lands. As a plus it could also be adapted to space faring sci-fi games as a indigenous planetary species with a little work. Go to Comment

A fun easily adaptable npc, once again able to fit in any high or low tech campaign with minimal adjustment. Well done and inspirational. Go to Comment

Silveressa's comment on 2014-04-08 08:31 AM
Don't know how I missed this one, but it's useful and has a bit of a timeless quality in that many of the items can be used in modern and sci-fi campaigns with a little alteration. Go to Comment

An interesting npc, and sure to add intrigue to any forest based adventure.

Silveressa's comment on 2011-01-15 08:37 PM

 A nice touch of background to the most common item in any fantasy setting, good for adding a bit of extra detail next time someone takes some coinage to get exchanged.

Silveressa's comment on 2008-12-18 12:36 AM
Indeed, a little polish and I'm happy to toss my vote and a HOH nomination on this sub.

A nice race to add depth to unexplored regions of the world, although a little detail on northern varieties woudl be excellent. (Given winter woudl either put these people into hibernation aside form the ever green ones, their culture would be someone seasonal in nature.) Go to Comment

Subtle and handy, useful for those mages recovering from grevious bodily injury as well.

Bone Island
Locations  (Area)   (Water)
Silveressa's comment on 2011-07-15 04:35 PM

A nice island with lots of potential, fits into the Hewdamia setting quite well. With it being an island it's easy enough to plug into other settings just as quick and with minimal modification.

One could also use this in a space faring campaign as an abandoned grave site of some long dead race, perhaps with bizarre high tech psi emitters to help dissuade would be grave robbers.

it can also be used to cure meats so they'll last longer before going rancid. Go to Comment

There are those as rich as kings but dress as peasants and worry not about funding. To visit their true homes one would see wealth of untold value scattered as dirt is in a hut. They know the monetary value of their possessions but they have long lost any true value to their owners. Experience is their currency and their curse. They dispense secrets of the ages as if discussing the weather. Few things have they not experienced so that very little gives them joy. They are the lost ones looking for new life while humoring the mortals around them.
