Any specific suggestions on the histories? The LongSpear had a different style (mythic) then this one and I've been trying out a more technobabblish one here.

The histories are what I've been trying to develop for these submissions and admittedly they need work. Go to Comment

Heh, you should see the Platemail version.... :)

Yes, these items are generally one-off constructions. They are very expensive (that is why the target in the backstory was a king) and need suprise to be effective. Once mages know what to look for, these suits lose their effectiveness. Go to Comment

Heh, some people complain if there is no story!

In any case, I would let the GM decide on how well they are known. Their power is increased by their rarity. In this case, only Kagerith knows the way to make these suits (he has apprentices, but he is jealous of his secrets, so they only know part of the process). If his written works were stolen, then other mages could carry on with production. Go to Comment

Jeesh, the feedback others make to put a little more detail into the Bolt of Twilight has created a monster! :)

Seriously, when I started to read the description, I was wondering why people ever worship these things but that became pretty clear early on. This is an excellent alternative to the generic evil gods of death.

And now I'm scared of Scrasamax... :) Go to Comment

The Other Wandering Carnival..

The PC's see a large caravan of more then a dozen large wagons. Some are laden with cages occupied by odd creatures. Many diverse and odd people travel either on or beside the horse-drawn wagons.

This is The Carnival of Forgotten Souls. Go to Comment

I think this is an excellent idea.
There is room for many, many suggestions with this idea. I do not have any at the moment, but I can't to see what other add to this list. Go to Comment

This is really cool. I like these book excerpts - they are so useful to populate libraries PC's encounter in their adventures and can give a world an amazing level of detail. Go to Comment
Bolt of Twilight
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Villanous)
valadaar's comment on 2006-08-30 11:00 AM
Cool item - excellent backstory.

The fact that it is a unique item and is currently in a rather unobtainable situation mitigates it's rather powerful effect.

Sending the PC's on a quest to regain the 'holy relic' from the dragon would be a good lesson for the PC's to do their research first... Go to Comment
Dungeons  (Forest/ Jungle)   (Ecology)
valadaar's comment on 2006-08-29 11:36 AM
In a word, wow! When my campaign gets going again from the summer hiatus I'll have to put this in my players' path :) (Evil GM grin...)

This is both a very specific and detailed environment, with the ability to be seamlessly dropped into virtually any campain world!

Now, the only thing is that it reminds me a little of the Dreams of Lorac from the early Dragonlance novels, but not enough for me to change my vote. 5/5 Go to Comment
Blossom of Rage
Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Forest/ Jungle)
valadaar's comment on 2006-08-29 11:12 AM
Wow, you would have to be _really_ desperate to use this one.

Seriously though, if the forest people are that desperate, then the success rate of this armour would need to be high to be worth it - if it killed/incapacitated more warriours then could use it, then this seems worse then simply fighting and dying gloriously.

Perhaps there are other herb or secret potion which would reduce/eliminate the pain and madness involved and so only outsiders who tried to use it would encounter the full detrimental effects of the armour. Personally, I'd take my chances using a fire-harded spear against metal equipped enemies then go through this :) Go to Comment

I think this is an excellent, well described NPC, but not the most exciting :)
As a brave old soldier, it may be his destiny to be brave once more before his days end.

I agree with Scrasamax - if you don't like the name, change it. Having it affect your vote in my mind is a little petty - so long as you don't use something like Jack the samurai, then it really should be about the quality of the submission. Go to Comment

Interesting, and really only good for ambushes. Causing your opponent to flinch is pretty important in combat, since they might not be able counter as effectively.

All spell casters gain their abilities through a form of demon possession. So in order to gain magical abilites, PCs must track down and trap demons. Of course there are some pretty powerful demons, if the demon is stronger than the PC, the PC could find themselves subjugated to the Demon's will.
