The most interesting aspect of the original 30 entry was the hatchets, and that was overlooked on this one. All we know is that he has a sterotypical bad upbringing. It feels more like a police file then anything else. Go to Comment

Yep, it is a very fun and usable plot! You could even have a whole school of magic with that. Go to Comment

This is fun. A simple encounter that could lead to a fear of open skies, cubes, and certainly goblins. If I was to use this (and I might) I would totally go for the full-out abduction experience... Strange pregnancy or seeming impotency, hallucinations, lumps under the skin, animals being afraid of the PC (could be fun with a druid), and all sorts of other ideas come to mind. I think there is a lot more that could be done with this sub, but I like it. Good work. Go to Comment

Voting again. Solid 4. This is such a fun idea to throw in the middle of an adventure. Goblinophobia is an amazing flaw for a player to have, but I would definitely give them some bonuses to go with the experience. Maybe something goblin related, like they can now use a magical item that once only functioned in the hands of a goblin. I'm loving these Daily Highlights! Go to Comment

This fun idea has the potential for a cute sideline, but perhaps a story line as well; with an advanced world or dimension which has become completely enslaved by goblins. They are looking to enslave this one as well, and "probing" the denizens for their weaknesses (pardon the pun). Go to Comment

Very good, spiders don't have to be giant maneaters to be dangerous to people. Good for any world, from fantasy to sci fi, *real life* to archipelago. Maybe your best submission yet in my eyes. Go to Comment

Not all dangers come in the gigantic carnivorous plant category. These are an excellent example of what else can pose a threat to your party. Very well planned and thought out, I like the overall completeness of this sub. It would be the simplest of things to pull out wholesale and use without hardly any modification. Go to Comment

Well done. An understated spider, but one that can certainly cause a bit of trouble and worse. I have to say, the plot hooks are simple, yet interesting in and of themselves! Which just shows that a GM can weave a cool adventure out of the teeniest ideas!

I think I'll add them to my campaign. I'm gm'ing a solo game currently, and a blood-drenched ship, with a blood-drenched, babbling, paranoid sailor will be pulling into the harbor shortly. ;)

Good job! Go to Comment

These are rather whimsical, charming little beings as the others have described, but I do have a question. You mentioned that they project feelings of happiness in order to ''To save themselves from inter-faerie strife'', but what do you mean by that exactly? It's a bit vague. Thank. Go to Comment

Coinlake

       By: Murometz

Coinlake sits perched between two sheer cliffs in the Stigrani range, and is difficult to find, much less approach. Four miles long and two across, the water is a vibrant cyan blue. The lake's shoreline is an unassuming beach of gray pebbles, and its mean depth is seventy feet. The rare times when the sun makes its way between the cliffs and shines over the the still water, one could see clearly the lake's rock-strewn bottom.

Strangely, no fish or aquatic life can be found here.

At night, a peculiar phenomena occurs. When the night sky is clear, the moon and stars are reflected in the lake's surface, but if one were to look at the surface from a high vantage point, the reflection does not match the firmament above!

Instead the water's surface reflects the night sky of some other distant world and seventeen shining golden moons besides, each ones shimmering upon the water like so many gold coins!

Legends whisper that Coinlake is not a lake at all, but a gate or nexus, to some distant alien world.

The mystery has long remained unsolved, and only recently has the Arch-Duke commissioned an expedition to uncover the secret of Coinlake once and for all. Among the team members are several scholars of the Nascent Academy, an astrologer from the Occultists Guild, and of course the PCs, acting as body guards.
