A Dark Moon over Sagranz

Very atmospheric, with the trademark disturbing parts. :)

If there is anything to point out, I'd expect the Father of the Frozen Dead have some cold or frost-related aspect to him; or is a more descriptive title, with the dead becoming stiff and frozen after their passing? Go to Comment
The Kebah-Di'i, students of the White Sand God
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Plains)
manfred's comment on 2009-11-08 08:49 AM
They are a fun people! Friendly with reason, holding their own when necessary. That they are lightly disturbing helps even more!

(Aside: feel free to use bold, it makes the titles stand out much more.) Go to Comment
Chapter 6: The Sabatallee
Society/ Organizations  (Ethnic/Cultural)   (Country/ State)
manfred's comment on 2009-10-24 05:19 PM
Love the details about the fat and social ranking, a great description overall. With sverigesson's note aside, it is a solid ethnographic description with quite a bit colorful history and essence packed in. Me likey! Go to Comment
The Bagabond
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Swamp)
manfred's comment on 2009-10-25 06:52 PM
I thought about this creature for a while, and its vague, peaceful, somewhat absurd nature has amused me. It is mysticism personified, one of the many products of blind natural forces or unknown purpose. Definitively worth using. Go to Comment
NPCs  (Mythic/ Historical)   (Political)
manfred's comment on 2009-10-18 05:24 PM
And out is he, the first of his race. I had to look up Lifthrasir, the name is indeed appropriate.

I like the little difference between him and Lillith. :) Go to Comment
Lance of Hades
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Combat)
manfred's comment on 2009-10-18 03:54 PM
And if there was a picture of the Lance, it would be even better. :) Go to Comment
Passion Purge
Items  (Potion)   (Cursed)
manfred's comment on 2009-10-18 03:14 PM
Now of course, the potion would be after some time metabolized... the question is, how long will it take, with a potion designed to last long? Months, years? And who is safe from his own emotions for such a long time?

A very neat and destructive creation, and a first submission even! Welcome, WIM40. Enjoy your stay. Go to Comment
Flame Fowl
Lifeforms  (Third Kingdom)   (Any)
manfred's comment on 2009-10-12 05:37 PM
I would expect they are like chickens, just a bit more firey. :)

Finally the right fowl for a Hedge Wizard! A drop of silliness can create great creatures. Go to Comment
Fire Flies
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)
manfred's comment on 2009-10-12 05:33 PM
What a decent little bugger, exactly right for those high-fantasy jungles. Avoid them or kill them fast, or you might end up roasted.

+1 for Muro's image of a running PC on fire... classic. :) Go to Comment
Prometheus Amulet
Items  (Armor)   (Non-Magical)
manfred's comment on 2009-10-18 03:38 PM
You make a science-fiction item, you get to hear from science fiction fans. :)

But I do like the general idea. The workings can be changed, the basic function can stay... a shield, that protects against heat is always handy. Go to Comment
Grand Pyre of the Phoenix
Locations  (Other)   (Mountains)
manfred's comment on 2009-10-12 05:20 PM
Solid imagery! You could blame some of the confusion on its chaotic nature, in that it appears different from various angles, not quite a place of this world after all.

(Seeing the healing of the Queen of Storms, I'm slowly wondering, what happened of the other god - would he also recover and come back one day? Sounds like a good base for a pantheon.) Go to Comment
The Holy Firestick
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
manfred's comment on 2009-10-12 04:51 PM
Quite a decent stick! One note: the staff is said to reach to its owner's shoulder, but is given to him in childhood - is it magically grown to account for the owner's maturing? Maybe that is how its powers come into effect in the first place... it has to mature as well.

(Oh, and don't forget to link to other relevant posts from your world, there must be something related. :) ) Go to Comment
Alexis the Vampiric Priest
NPCs  (Scenario Based)   (Criminal/Espionage)
manfred's comment on 2009-09-30 03:00 PM
That 'living off his salary' bit would quickly reveal him to anyone in search - his own church in the first place.

As another plot hook, he could easily find a target too big for himself - and would do the perfectly logical thing: tip off some PCs to do it! Few seem to doubt a mysterious patron who finds them employment. Go to Comment
Items  (Wand/Staff/ Arcane)   (Magical)
manfred's comment on 2009-09-30 05:24 PM
I have to concur, this one is worth it. Short and very much to the point.

Thus one can sew the own soul in by mistake, or any random passing soul, both to a great danger to anyone around... a proper danger to such a powerful tool. No more simple resurrection spells. Go to Comment
The Golden Spiral Door
Dungeons  (Other)   (Doors)
manfred's comment on 2009-09-15 06:51 PM
That would depend on the construction of course. Everything can be broken down, the question is what you get of it.

The Fibonacci sequence is simple enough to make people guessing, and rises fairly swiftly, so anything beyond ten becomes too impractical for use. You could encode something like an elevator with this, the destruction of the mechanism could destroy the whole cabin and drop the passengers down a _very_ deep hole.

Basic, but it has its appeal. Go to Comment
Items  (Potion)   (Magical)
manfred's comment on 2009-09-13 03:17 PM
Maybe too hastily written, but the idea is there. And yeah, why not? The perfect healing potion, healing everything, even the parts that don't need healing. This is the kind of medicine, that is with great enthusiasm brought into use, only to be rapidly limited when the horrific side effects were shown. Hard to get that point down about magic being unpredictable? "I have this potion, it will cure all your wounds..." Go to Comment
Quicksilver LTCAM 4-12
Items  (Armor)   (Combat)
manfred's comment on 2009-09-13 03:07 PM
Okay, this is the first mecha controlled out of a fetal position I came across - and that ironic detail alone is worth something. :)

Otherwise it looks like a fairly respectable member of its kind. Let others judge it on its technical merits. Go to Comment
Glider Bombs
Items  (Transports)   (Combat)
manfred's comment on 2009-10-18 04:15 PM
Imagine the evening sky, sun setting, the night is almost here... and a host of triangular things slowly floating upon a city. Soon they will be invisible and find their targets.

Surely they have their weaknesses, but they do fill a niche, as said. Go to Comment

Fun with kobolds! And a major location to up their potential too. Me likey. Go to Comment
The Hub
Locations  (TransWorld)   (Space)
manfred's comment on 2009-09-12 05:52 PM
Linked to FTL drives and put into the Science Fiction region. Good solid idea it is.

Perhaps it might need a little more personality, but it does characterize its function well. One doesn't want to imagine, what would happen if some rival attacked this system as a primary target... even if losing, the empire would be shaken to its core. Go to Comment

Rain slowly builds, thunder and lightning continue to roll in. Road muddies, horse/wagon getting stuck in the mud. Thunder strikes coinciding with a deep hole a horse just walked in, horse panics, breaks its leg (maybe just sprain?). Horse is decompacitated and the rain just went from pouring to an all out monsoon. Shelter needs to be found, horse needs to be taken care of, covered in mud, add the posibility of items being lost to the confusion with the wind and dealing with spooked animals.
