An excellent idea, although I don't know if I could actually have ogres distilling rum in my campaign. However, the article you linked at the bottom has given me substantial heeby-jeebies, so thanks! Go to Comment
Pretty cool. I like the aspects of their culture that you mentioned, particularly their labyrinths. I suppose if you could convince them to stop using the grain, you could cure the fertility problem, but given their pride and disdain of humans, I don't know if that would make them friends or enemies.

A very nice new take on a classic race. You could link it to the new takes. I like the way they are incorporated into the world. I like the changes that they have go through. There are some great plot hooks there. Good job. Two paws up. Go to Comment
I love this, shame on me for not commenting and voting before. And perhaps I should not not mention that this is the second time I have read it. Sometimes I simply forget to vote. Ach Mathom has me in his cold grip.
But to move on- This is so full of goodies and hints that I almost drool when I read it. I can think of a million ways to use this and I shall. Too bad we only have one word for labyrinth in norwegian, so I can not point out the difference for my players. I would also like to think that some human landlords are aware of the reason for decreased ferility but fail to mention it because of greed for their lands. Go to Comment
This one did it for me... few of them make me reread a post before i am done because I want to enjoy it.
I think some of my favorite parts of this, other than the Unmentionable One (hehe funny stuff) and the passage of manhood, or would it be Taurhood?
I find it rather funny that Mur only thinks I would give a 4.3 on this (or 4.5 in the voting sense). Perhaps I am too hard on my voting practices but this one rates a full 5 out of me. Ill give you a lower score next time. Go to Comment
Remind me very much of the Tauran from Blizzard's World of Warcraft, but I think the traditions and ceremonies you give here have a more "authentic" feel to them. The trial of the freezing river and the "yodeling" are both colorful touches. Perhaps a human druid/ranger could discover the source of their lowered fertility and restore peace between the two races. Go to Comment
The Petty Kingdoms is a region consisting of hundreds of small states. Some are kingdoms, some are city states, some are large farming communities, some are duchesses and baronies and so on and so forth. Within a few miles the PCs might reach a new "country" with completely different rules and norms than the one they left behind. "What do you eat here? Humans ye say? Lets turn around fellas."
