Agreed! A great starting point for a race that is quite different. They strike me as very useful for a lot of bits and can be a nice replacement for goblins.

Another great submission! Lots of good details - I can really visualize the setting.

I find the second plot a little on the choreographed side, but I think that is just a matter of personal preference. Go to Comment

An excellent submission. Love all the details.
The plot is good except for the forced nature of the shoot-down. I wouldn't expose the PCs own ship to a forced loss - better they be on some form of McCarron provided transport that gets knocked out of the air. If the PCs are in charge of flying and defense, you may have to 'force' them to fail at defense, especially against the crap fighters. I would personally hate that.

This is a top-notch article here. Can't add more other then to say thank you for this article. I have read a lot of WWII history and although I knew what the Enigma machine was, I really did not clearly understand how it worked. This helps immensely!

I love the Celtic feel of this one. Excellent items and atmosphere!
A handful of quests, a creation myth. Awesome.
I'd like to see more Songs, but this is a very good submission.

Kicking this out of my in-work folder. My expectation is that there would be contested rolls/saving throws made to enter each stage as the possession progresses.

4. The possession is currently reversible - 5 would mean you see the horned, red-skinned monstrosity in its full glory.

I'd leave that up for the DM of course :) And yes, one could omit the safeties such as being usable only outdoors and not being able to enclose things in rock-strong cloud. Then they become dangerous indeed.

Mind Control and You.... and Them...
Articles  (Rules and Advice)   (Game Mastering)
valadaar's comment on 2016-11-08 01:16 PM
Great article. I also like the idea of treating Mind Control as basically a form of illusion. It has the disadvantage of requiring notes/private chats/etc to implement fully though.

Willingly playing out the effects of mind-control should provide some form of reward to the player, even in the case it leads to their character's demise. Perhaps some form of boon on their next character.

The Land of the Lensbearers

       By: Wulfhere

There is a land where every person wears spectacles. Those without eyeglasses are considered to be the lowest stratum of society, so adventurers without glasses are treated like outcastes. It certainly would explain those heroes wearing sunglasses for no apparent reason...
