I agree with valadaar... while having an item able to mimic its opposite is interesting but I fail to see exactly how this could be used in combat effectively. Seems rather confusing. Go to Comment

I think a little more description on how it would be used could help - how could I fight with it unless I stood in an area just as wide or wider then where the staff was located?

It seems that it would be difficult to use without additional telekinetic powers to position it properly.

I too would like to see some clarification.



Apart from that it's a neat idea.

I rather like this.  Having a second stave that mirrors one's motions could be a really nifty combat trick.  At the very least, the second stave would be causing general mayhem about 10 ft away while you engage an opponent directly.  Just watch out for friendly fire.

I agree with the masses on this one. This is another refreshing item that is far to simple to pass up. Its back ground is detailed and fulfilling, yet one thing I miss is why was this entire summoning happening? And who was Bu’Atalar before he was trapped? All in all though I like it. Go to Comment

I like it. You did a good job of giving us a good item to use, as well as some good tips on using it. The whole thing feels just a bit tongue-in-cheek, but in a serious way (that doesn't make sense, but don't mind.) Good job, Pieh. Go to Comment

This is...odd, but in a good way. I like it.

But it made me think of some other interesting scenario. Suppose that the PCs find some way to communicate with the demon, such as a spell or if the demon has telepathy. Suppose further that the demon is confused enough to not remember what evil is, only that he enjoys committing it. He would be encouraging the PCs to do acts of 'evil' as he believes but these acts aren't truly evil, or they are completely opposite. "Yes! Give the money to the orphanage. Evil incarnate; aha ha ha!" Go to Comment

This is a nice gateway item and the scenerio is a good starting point.

This could easily be the start of a plot far larger then it appears currently. Perhaps all this was supposed to happen in the plans of some other villain.

Thanks for picking that one up, Val. I was toying with various terms to describe what I wanted. Looks like I didn't make a choice. :P

Trench, is what I decided on. I considered trough, gouge, bore, and a few others. Just to give you an idea of what I mean. Sort of like an indented rift of purple gemstone. Go to Comment

A good application of the Quasi-souls. Also an interesting goal for the party when they need some information. I would love to see what tidbits my party brings out to barter for what they need. Go to Comment

Excellent NPC and as Drackler said, a great illustration of this type of being.


Missing word:

Would the taste and consistency be enough to trick a full vampire. Could end up being the key to weakening one in order to actually have a chance at defeating it.

Very unusual, definitely needs to be sold in the garage sale. :) Go to Comment

The garage sale from hell is alwys welcome.

Note: the thing will be especially unpleasant and hard to explain if spilled.
Getting blood stains out of clothes and carpets is quite difficult and evokes suspicion, after all. Go to Comment

I like it. I could see this being given to some red-herring NPC by mistake, and then the party would start thinking that he was some evil necromancer/demon/lawyer that drinks the blood of the living for breakfast. Go to Comment

The journey had been a long one and now they had entered the mountains. After an entire day spent on paths cut into the mountainside and through moss covered coniferous woods, they encounter a desperate young mountain tribal. He is searching for his beloved wife and his elder brother, both of whom he got separated from after an unsuccessful attempt to kill a cave bear. The last thing he saw was the cave bear in full pursuit of his wife. He could not help her as he had been knocked to the ground by the raging beast, and was struggling to regain full consciousness. The tribal will be clearly nervous and urges them to look for his wife during their travels. He will stay in his village a couple of miles to the north and pleads for assistance should they recover his wife, whether she be dead or alive.

On the next day of travel, they will journey upon a dim track in the forest and while they are preparing to ascend another path cut into the mountainside, they hear moans of lust from somewhere nearby. Upon closer inspection they will spy a young tribal woman in the heat of the act with an elder tribal male. They are consummating their forbidden love on the cold mountain moss, and beside them lay the skinned and slaughtered carcass of a huge bear.
