A nice weapon, it is a great mix of utlitity, style and attitude. Three things that every good heroic roleplayer will focus on, and the history of the item is nice touch that will make owning such a weapon as PC more enjoyable. They could also become collectable items. It makes me wish my group had a focused archer. Go to Comment
The Steelbows of Senek and his line are merely the most prominent examples of these rare bows. Dozens or perhaps hundreds of others exist, whether wielded by mighty archers or rusting in the collections of decadent nobles and well fed merchants. Some of these lesser known bows may even be as well crafted as their more famous counterparts. Go to Comment
Nicely detailed creature. I like the fact that these creatures "flip". They have a number of dramatic hooks (the growing flocks, the dangerous homeland to explore, the quest for curatives made from it, and so on). A nice addition to a game world. Go to Comment
"The curse allegedly causes cramps, fever, and vomiting so severe that healthy men have died from it."
Ah, sounds like a case of severe salmonella poisoning from poorly cooked fowl!
I like this submission - it's not often enough that we get simply a believable lifeform that isn't all-powerful or with some strange quirk.
This is easily something you could find on planet earth. Go to Comment
Not bad, but if feels like it was cut off halfway through. what are the curative power's of the bird's horn, can it be taken without killing the bird, and do the birds make for good eating? Go to Comment
Oh, I do have a question: what do they spend their newly-found wealth on? :)
They make a great pair. I have a suspicion, that the goblin's amazing talent is not of natural origin - perhaps his father was not a goblin, but something else? Might be funny to expore that option. Go to Comment
I really like this - And I love the thought of a master thief calling himself the greatest thief in in kingdom bieng succesfully stalked by a goblin simply to have this 'great thief's' tale published. Go to Comment
The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.
