Love them! Remoras of magical force. Love that they are generally harmless, yet appear dangerous. Just imagined a tragic scenario for PCs. They finally reach and enter the great treasure vault, chock-full of magical items, only to find that Spellseekers have managed find it as well, years ago, and have "drained" the hoard dry, duplicating themselves many times in the process.
Just to clarify, a magical sword would "damage" them with a "hit", even as they drain a bit of its magic? Go to Comment
One of the blind spots of the CE is the over reliance on technology. The drones and other surveillance systems that sort through the data would certainly spot Bereingianus, but the systems would register him as nothing more than a bear. Sure, he is a bear in a harness wearing a scout device, but the majority of systems wouldn't register the harness. He is almost never armed, so no weapons are detected, so no matter how absurd a bear in a vest might be, no flags are set off.
If a person actually sat and sorted through all of the data, they would totally notice a bear with gear, but most data is never seen by human eyes. Go to Comment
In the inaccessible plateau of Hor-Nushan, there was always little crime. But in late autumn comes a maddening wind, that can drive the best man crazy, if only for a short time, make him turn on himself or others. For murder, the locals have devised a special punishment: the murderer has to dig a well for the family of his victim. The area is very dry, and having a good well is a source of wealth and prestige. In this way, the murderer atones for his deed and repays the family; perhaps they even find peace.
