At least you are not rabid about it. I've blocked about 30 people on twitter because they acted like the MLP or furries in general were a plot to blow up the planet! Anybody pushing that kind of hate garbage needs meds.

141. Fox's cunning pill on the black market

[i]Bongo the barbarian did a face palm as Wizzo said it. "I can't enter the wizard competition. I always use the pill to boost my intelligence, and they detect for that.!"

DM Briefing: Pushers are now selling a pill that functions as the restricted spell fox cunning. It is high tech and while it doesn't detect as magic, it does as a mild poison. For ten minutes it boosts intelligence by 4, then for 10 minutes intelligence drops by 4 below their normal intelligence. It sells for twice what Owl's Wisdom costs per dose. While it grants bonus spells and higher level spell ability, it then causes the loss. Thus using it may cause the temporary loss of some spell slots and ability to cast higher level spells. It radiates very high tech if you have a way to detect that.

PS: I may have been confused by the core rulebook not having a write up for the spell. Further research has shown it to be referenced by items and the Sorcerer/Wizard spell lists. Sorry.

PSS: If there are no spell slots to temporarily subtract, the user becomes dazed till it wears off.


Junky Monkey: Using big six potions before the most encounters in a row. Potions such as Owl's Wisdom or Fox's Cunning. Fox's Cunning isn't even in the core rulebook.

Dash Morsecode!


258:The bean planter is now subscribed to Celestial Times. There are inspiring articles and stories(If read aloud you can inspire courage with a DC15 perform check). There is a good aligned ritual or spell(can replace or fill an empty spell or ritual slot). The know your enemy dept.ment provides an adventure hook and a pertinent knowledge check +4. The adds in the back sell healing potions, various cure scrolls, and a used staff of life and death(Half priced, empty of charges).

The first issue falls on the bean planter's head. There is 1D8 points of residual healing energy in the issue. It fades after 10 minutes. Every issue arrives that way. Each issue also includes 3 magic stamps that allow envelopes and packages full of coins and such to be magically plane shifted to the upper planes. The lantern acheron making a pickup is most impressive.

259:Like 258 but thoroughly evil. Play Devil has horrific monster centerfolds, singestive articles, and a thoroughly evil spell or ritual in every issue. Sometimes it pays to have the undead plant the bean. The issue comes flying up at the planter's face.


250A:String bean plant.
250B:Kidney bean plant.
250C:Pinto bean plant.
250D:Butter bean plant.

On the other hand, if you play on a summer "out there for fun" softball league, and you sent on the bench constantly while the team wins every game, no, it's not a lot of fun.

the rules of softball involve competition and keeping score. if you don't do that, technically you're just knocking a ball around with a stick not "playing softball". not that there's anything wrong with that; it's just not the same, and i think it's misleading to refer to it as the same thing as a sport with competition and scorekeeping built in.

You're making things extremely black and white here. Of course we keep score in softball games. But, not all softball games in which you keep score are the same sorts of things. Simply because you're keeping score, it does not mean that "win at all costs" is the goal. That the final score is the one and only thing that matters, or even that it's the most important thing. In some games, sure. You're at the Olympics, you're in a professional league, then, yeah, you do everything legal you can to increase score. But in a summer fun softball league, it's not the same thing. And, players who want to play who get benched simply because somebody else would contribute more to the score are not going to be having fun, and are not going to want to be there.

The score doesn't have to be the absolute most important thing to still be something that matters. Just how important it is depends on the context of the game. You're making a big mistake if you think that the presences of a score that's kept means that the score is the one thing you should be focusing on. In a collaborative game like an RPG, for most people that's not how they want to be playing.

...

If they play softball on "The Biggest Loser", losing weight is the most important thing.

For me, having my character make a difference, which I cannot do in IRL, is the most important thing. Several times I have played a bard/rogue. You can optimize for something besides being the combat star. When I played the paladin, I used smite based on obvious evilness, cause the final monster of the day might be a golem.

351.) If you say turbo bass, and someone makes a fish pun, the jokes on you.(Goes Turbo Bass fishing)


347.) Please put out any burning orcs. Only you can prevent dungeon fires.


Well there was the famous fairy godmother.


You would have to limit damage and AC of monsters, and damage done by traps. Many beloved modules and adventure paths would have to be ruined or discarded. If someone already said this, I'm agreeing with them.


344B.) Female dwarves can have mustaches and beards.:)


Stop talking about reality!

The medieval Christian church forced stuff like souring milk and wilting crops on people to the point that the fey left and never came back.

As for changelings, The Fey court probably never respected the institution of marriage. Changelings are all possibly half Fey. I'm so unlucky I may have the Pugwampi bloodline.

I recommend playing the Fey as having a different set of rules and ethics. Maybe they have no detectable alignment.

By definition, players roleplay PCs. GMs roleplay NPCs. If an enchanter charms a goblin, the GM still roleplays him. They may not think of fire as a threat, and that could be of weal or woe.


342B.)Unless the actual definition makes no sense. With damage reduction, they take the damage and then it is removed. Thus if a stone golem has taken full damage it crumbles and you cannot put the hit point back.:p


341.) Creatures with damage resistance now suffer additional damage from any weapon that bypasses that resistance, equal to the resistance. Thus a werewolf with DR 1/silver suffer an additional point of damage from silvered weapons. They suffer 1 point subdual from the touch of silver on their skin. This does apply to PC lycanthropes.

I'd also redo some of the DR/Cold Iron that a lot of Fey have and give them Cold Iron Vulnerability (sp). Have them take an extra 1-2 dmg due to the cold iron burning their skin/flesh. Trolls were part of the Unseelie Court. Make a troll subrace with the fey type...goblins too. Give them a fey typed subrace too.

A flat extra damage equal to the damage resistance for anything that bypasses the resistance might be a good idea. It would go a long way to players who want to spam lycanthropy.

245B:A lawyer from the greylands shows up and says,"This power is beyond the scope of this item. You cannot destroy the entire plane of existence with a non artifact. Here's some cookies". This is a magical tin of cookies. While the 18 small sugar cookies(3 layers of 6) are perfectly ordinary, the tin refills at dusk. If there is no dusk, just call it bedtime.

Except it wasn't to save money. It was to ignore the massive groundswell against 4th edition. They can restart their message boards now that they have a decent product.

Smurfs are more free with their product than Hasbro. That's why the MLP characters will never appear as Avatar choices.


The halfling paladin with a holy sword was fine. The smiting, laying on hands, and such made up for the size difference.

Spiny the Gnome was like a mini tank. He was a favorite with elvish archers because they could fire over him while melee based enemies couldn't get past him. Also, his armor spikes discouraged evil monks.


Also, don't just spam traps.
Like monsters, a room or area should have one major or a few minor traps.

If an abandoned temple was trap happy, maybe the residents tripped most of them, and died in the process.:p


I put, in the Cleaves, an unsafe safe. If someone fails to pick the lock, it teleports to above the other party members cowering behind.

What if the illusionist sends in an invisible silent image first. It radiates magic, but isn't solid. It's pretty much just a wad of magic.

225: The bean grows to huge size, then the rasor hand slasher bursts out, ressurected. If you kill him, you wake up in a town having killed a random citizen. If he kills you, you wake up with slash marks all over your body near where the planting took place, with 1D6 hit points left. The only way to stop him is to find a reaper and help capture him so he can be taken back to the lower planes.


Last week, I saw curucu beast of the amazon. A huge aquatic bird, with vicious claws instead of wings. In the movie it was a tropical bird monster but a temperate version is as likely(not much).

584.A hundred wishes This book contains one hundred carefully worded wishes. If you have any wishes left, this helps you use them without dire consequences. One brings a named person back to life, not dying, and not going to make the same mistake. Another asks for a map to treasure worth at least 1000GPs, not legally owned, and not infected. One big chapter lists things you should not wish for such as what happened to a god who simply disappeared.

Note that if some idiot wishes for 100 more wishes, they will receive this book, which they should read before they waste any more wishes.

26: Blood Curse/Enchantment. A person or object is cursed and enchanted forever. During the ritual, a specially prepared bell must be rung, a book(or otherwise non magical scroll) detailing the curse/enchantment must be read, and a special candle must be lit. Then the being leading the ritual must cut their finger and touch all 3 objects(1D4 damage).

Success: A person who is Cursed/Enchanted will hand the effect down to one offspring even if born previous to the ritual when they die or are cured. The passing on of the curse ends only if the person who led the ritual and all their descendants are dead. Remove curse only sends it to the next valid decedent.

1) They can be cursed with Lycanthropy of any kind. They must will save every night of the full moon DC of the ritual's success.

2) They can be turned into undead of any kind. When they die they turn immediately. Magic which prevents rising as undead is only temporary. If the magic is removed, and the body is not destroyed, they become the undead.

3) Death Prophecy. The target can only be killed one way. Any other way and they stabilize automatically, or make their save against any permanent death, ect. It can be ridiculously rare. A target might be vulnerable only to death by squirrel bites. It is up to the GM to put the death back on the table. Perhaps a swarm of rabid squirrels.

4) A magic item could be created with a horrible drawback. Perhaps a Staff of Life that is rechargeable only by striking a deathblow with the staff. One charge per death.

5) Story come true. The Daughter of the Evil Queen cursed the story book so each generation, one member of each protagonists family would relive the story. Pinocchio's daughter became a living puppet till she performed a completely selfless dead. Snow white's daughter found the 7 most incompetent Dwarves in history came back to help her. Both she and Sleeping Beauty's daughter fall into a deep sleep if exposed to poison. Only a kiss from royalty or true love will wake them.

Failure: The[/b]...

Curse/enchantment rebounds on the being who led the ritual. I should be in the worst way possible. In the story example, she would have turned into a hag and heros would all start coming to kill her. With the cursed staff of life it would keep reappearing in his hand till he died. In all such cases no save is allowed.

Difficulty is 30 plus 1 per DC of any creature involved.

Modifiers: Craft(of the makers of the bell, book, and candle), Knowledge Arcana, and Spellcraft)

Costs: The 3 objects must cost a minimum of 5,000 each. Another 5,000 in miscellaneous costs.

Special: to remove the curse/enchantment completely, you must recreate the ritual, but you must ring the bell, close the book(or roll up the scroll), and blow out the candle. You may have to repour the wax from the original candle.

27: The Becoming

Success: Causes the drug induced delusions of the designated dreamer, to come true.

Modifiers: Craft(of art), Performance, Knowledge Arcana, and Religion)

Costs: The drugs(Can be alcohol or caffeine) must be at game effecting levels. +1 to chance of success for each 10,000GP used. Base cost for ritual is at least 20,000GPs as performers, art, and sacrifices are necessary.

Failure: Madness. Some cults have, locked away, a raving mad previous dreamer, who suffered from the ritual failing.

Difficulty 40 plus 1 for equivalent spell level. Thus if the effect is greater than any spell, it's 50.


47.)Nature Cat: The GM, in the voice of Nature Cat poses a quest to each player, outside. They must go, pick up litter, find an interesting rock, collect 2 kinor more types of fallen leaves, follow the stream to the edge of town, ect. They really only have to be outside for a half an hour to win a wish for their character. If they succeed at their quest they get an unlimited wish instead. An unlimited wish lets you true res a character irretrievably dead or send a truly vile NPC to Battor alive and carrying any items. The wish can be held onto but cannot be transferred.


You want to have it in just in case.
Better to have it and not need it.


See Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.
A humble man bows and thus avoids the blades.
Characters should only die in these games if they are being stupid.

The OP shouldn't add lead after the fact. Maybe they still read these topics. Maybe they are slowly starting to realize why they got dumped from the gaming group.

I resent the 2 flame war groups. While some trolls give people a hard time for going along with the OP, the others attack anyone who disagrees with the OP as if they were off topic. Then when I offer a compromise, both groups attack me. Usually I just hide the topic, but since most of the posters have been discussing this intelligently, I won't report it and recommend it be locked, yet.


My takes on AmbassadoroftheDominion's suggestions.

-an insect based aberration that actively seeks out sentient beings to lay its eggs in
Like the tiger fly or Xill

-a "walking Skull". basically a creature that slinks onto a battlefield looking for a severed head to inhabit
Hermit crab

-humanoids physically corrupted by the presence of an outer god or great old one
They have them for Cthulhu and I think Yog Sothoth. Yeah, more of thoes.

-whatever created the black blood
Who wrote the X-files? They called it black oil.

-an aberration that is biologically representative of algebra
How about an aspect of Nyarlotep that comes and destroys anyone trying to divide by zero.

-some aberrations based on Hieronymous Bosch
Like the Vrock. What's missing is a head with a popes hat and wagon wheels on either side. Possibly with psionic powers.

A: Rocks fall, Everyone Dyes! If you get a result that is bad for your campaign, substitute this. Theliah Strongarm(or someone else you are unhappy with) appears standing atop where the bean was planted. Rocks fall only on them. All the other characters find themselves dying Easter eggs for a half an hour. All the materials are provided, so they may be eating lots of hard boiled eggs that day. Some may be saved to provide a material component for stinking cloud.

B: Like A but Theliah Strongarm's body has been changed into gold. It may be worth it to move the rocks and dig it up, just in case.

C: Like A but everyone tie dyes tabards, including Theliah Strongarm, who has risen as a ghoul.

205: Rocks fall killing the nearest Kender or Darkling. If the character's later try to dig it up, they find a rock.

My friend Charlie had a cat that was always climbing up on his shoulder and riding there. I called it their long john silver impression. Thats more of a passive riding situation.

A Drow on a wyvern hurling spells might be a passive riding situation. The Wyvern might be in control.


Wand random treasure is normally minimum level.

If you are custom designing a dungeon, feel free to use a higher caster level.

In a homebrew game you can add 1D6-1 to the caster level. Just be ready for the extra book keeping.

198: A stone appears. It has magical runes written all over it. It hums when approached within 20 feet of it, like a bomb. When approached within 10 feet, it explodes in a 300 foot radius, dealing a hundred force and fire damage each. Anyone hit by the explosion (including objects) fly thirty feet backwards or, (in the case of structures and plants larger than Larger size), are flattened. There is no save of any kind for half damage.

199: A stick the size of a Medium well-polished quarterstaff pops out of the ground and has the properties of a +1 smiting Shock darkwood quarterstaff.
200: A car appears. It runs out of gas in three miles. It goes 160 feet in a round. Use the chariot rules in Ultimate Combat for the rest.

The runes say, "Damaging effects with no saves may cause all players to leave the table and never return."

To the OP, as every party has a battle leader, a social leader, a mapper, and a lantern carrier, the players should each have a task. Wash, wipe, sweep, pick up, maybe clear up the table top.

Some good game space ideas here.

188:There is a fountain of glittery yellow sparkles. Everyone in a 100 foot radius must fort save DC20 or come down with glitter psoriasis. Glitter is always falling from the hair on their body. Their hair is also itchy. A lotion of cure disease only works for 24 hours. This defect has a 50% chance of being passed on to children.


18 contains the tape backup in case the central computer needs restarting. Occasionally a memory crystal has been destroyed and the lost files need to be reloaded. All robots and androids automatically know how to change tapes. Anyone else it takes an intelligence check 20. 15 if they saw someone or thing do it. If this room is unattended, one of the tape drives is open waiting for a tape replacement. A row of 10 alien characters is flashing in red. The many tape racks against the other walls all have tapes labeled with similar characters. If someone uses read languages or something, the tape being asked for is B000000006. (BINGO!)

Every time you successfully replace a tape, a random credit coin (roll 3D20 for the value) falls out of a hidden slot in the wall.

PS: I used to work as a computer operator, so I know how these work.


Kitsunes in both natural and humanoid form would be perfect for one of the monsters in The Cleaves.
