I like it! The dual nature is very interesting and Moon's suggestion on possible explanation is quite cool.

Nice job! Go to Comment

I love the picture this presents. How to get here? Magic of course. That's part of what magic is for - to let us play with reality and go places reality would deny.

A great bit part that can be pulled out to enliven a street scene, even if no plot is involved.

As another wild option for a campain, how about one where the PCs are from a marine race and the entire campaign is set below the waves (for the most part)?

This opens the field up for more interesting denzens for under the sea, in the darks where no sun reaches. Go to Comment

Stone Flutes
One of the few remaining artifacts of the Alun people of note are the amazing Stone Flutes. These massive stone pillars (generally 6' in diameter and up to 30' tall) pierced with carefully carved holes. Running down the center of the stone (only visible from above the stone), is a long resonating chamber.

When wind blows across the top of the stone the right way, a low tone is created (similar to blowing across a bottle, but much lower in octave). Covering the various holes on the stone will cause slight variations in the tone - if enough are covered then the changes become perceptible enough to produce simple music. It would, however, require a large number of people, carefully coordinated, to 'play' this massive instrument.

Those samples which survive of these artifacts radiate a small degree of magic, though wether this is from their creation, or represent some means of improving their ability remains to be seen. What is known is that no attempt to replicate these structures has succeeded in producing the same quantity and quality of sound.

It is thought that these played an important part in the magical rituals performed by the Alun.

This was originally intended as a Stub for the Alun in The Scratching Stone, but it grew somewhat. Go to Comment

Updated: Removed many unnecessary newlines, a couple sections have been 'demoted' and moved into suitable sections.

This is due to them being, at least in Neyathis, a dead race.

The Stone Flutes idea preceeded the Alun and this sub by a great interval of time. It seemed appropriate to use with this stone-age people. Go to Comment

An interesting location and I'd love to see your ideas on why the site _is_ so evil. I know I can come up with my own 'origins', but I'd like to see yours :) Go to Comment

Interesting weapon - if it can be handled with one hand it sounds like it would be spectacular to see used paired.. Go to Comment

An interesting character, my only concern is that the only reason presented for his apparent unstoppability is his intelligence. I think he needs a few more clubs in the bag to be able to kill that many people with impunity. Did he get mystical training ala The Shadow? Sell his soul? Find a mystical book of encantations? :) Go to Comment

Found on the Road Dead

       By: rickster

Just off the road a man lies dead, pierced through the heart from behind by an expertly thrown and ornate dagger which remains in the body. A long strip of cloth torn from the man's shirt has been tied around his neck; on the tag end an unknown hand has written a cryptic inscription: "For Djaygo."

When you get to the next town, everyone is talking about a mercenary woman found slain in exactly the same fashion in her room at the inn where she was staying.
