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
I think this is a great sub, I like the duality of the small goblin skulker and the towering human bard, mixing subterfuge with purple prose...I love it! The excerpts through the text are what did it for me. Good work Wulfhere. Go to Comment
Adventure Idea: The PCs meet Kranno and Vonyich and they become fast friends. Maybe even have an adventure together. Kranno then hears something he shouldn't and Vonyich publishes it. As soon the story hits the public the powers that be put a hit out on Vonyich and Kranno and the PCs have to help them get out the Kingdom
Adventure Idea: A PC becomes their new favorite subject. The PC finds that he know has undserved reputation, a fan base and further more can't take a leak without finding it public knowledge the next day. This all becomes a problem when the PC become associated with the backdoor man/mistress of a local Warlord and at the same time is contracted to carry a subtle spy mission. Go to Comment
I like it, it's a bit "high fantasy" for me, in that everything is ensorcelled (and that magic seems to be pretty common).
ON the other hand, I love the setting details... It seems almost steampunk in a way, and I like the details about the free cities and the Hegemony, and the spell names are great.
However, the description seems a bit short.. I'm not sure what other details you could put into it, besides perhaps a more detailed description of the thing, and perhaps notes about its crew, but it ends quite abruptly.
Good text, nice flavor elements, good explantions, and some nice dramatic areas. It is a bit high magic, but I love it. I like the bound demon corrupting the crew and the existing powerful "airship" ruling the skys. Truly a great submission. Go to Comment
Dustwood is technically not a wood from a specific tree. It is an created fuel for fires.
Starting with the sawdust from a sawmill, adding a mixture of wax or pitch, and a few other things, the mixture is pounded or pressed toghether tightly. It is normally smashed into a round container, so when it is slipped out, it looks like a small perfectly round "log". (actually a lathed log, but you get the idea). It can either be used as a log or slices of a log can be used for a fire.
