I like. I would want to know the *why* of the vampire, but that's not to be included here, that's for another place.
where can i get it? i can handle blood being drawn, since it's not a needle lol Go to Comment
The NPC Railus will be a seperate submission and so will the history of the rings. At this time, I am not ready to make such submissions, so that is why the extra information has been included. Once I am ready, I will post the additional submissions and come back and clean up the rings. Go to Comment
While Constitution is a stat in the D20 system, the literal definition is the aggregate of a person's physical and psychological characteristics. I agree I could have worded it a little differently as to specifically state the changes made to the person lucky enough to don the ring, but this was written as an idea, not a guideline. I wanted to allow for as much room to fit it to another persons game world as possible. Stating that damage is done was a basic way of stating that a negative change is made.
I do not agree that the focus should be on the fact that the item turns beings into vampires. It is the final price to pay, but the benefit of protection and the leeway to additional powers that hint at vampirism is just as important. A suit of armor you can summon at will, without the need to take time to put it on is quite valuable. The fact that it makes no noise and weighs nothing is quite a benefit as well. It also does not impede spell casting, making it usable by almost anyone in a fantasy setting. I am not downplaying the curse, but it seems to me that people are downplaying the benefits.

It is 1 of 3, not all the same. Each does something different. The history of the Circle of Blood is more in depth than what I have put, I only included the important parts that are relevant to Bloodmail. Go to Comment
Well, there is only 1 ring of its kind in a set of 3 different rings, each with its own unique power; I dont really think its over powered. Seems like you'd have to be pretty powerfull to make good use of it anyway. I think in the right setting the ring is just fine. Go to Comment
Found this when I was looking for stuff to use in a game I am about to run, could be an interesting side plot and I think I could easily adapt the backstory with some slight changes. Can't wait for the rest. Go to Comment
Anything I could say has already been said. Some comments seem harsh and elitest, but I guess that is what happens when you ask people for their opinions. I think I will hold off on submitting anything for now, but I like your stuff I have read so far. Go to Comment
Of the three rings, I like this one the most. Definitely a double-edged sword, considering that most mages want the extra protection *because* they have lower fortitudes or weaker constitutions. It's perhaps a tiny bit overpowered, but that can be fixed by letting the mail start out relatively weak and get progressively stronger as the character does (maybe a straight conversion from a character's general health to the increased armor bonus?).

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.
