It's a fantasy game. If your equipment is suffering wear and tear, you've got gremlins. It would also make a cool curse for oracles.

I honestly envisioned Santa Claus as a 9th or 11th level human with enough mythic tiers to gain immortality, not a 20th level outsider. It doesn't make much sense for him to be beyond 11th since he doesn't do any adventuring or combat.

So you think sneaking into homes and leaving presents isn't worth experience points? He also has to subdue vicious guard dogs, disarm alarms and traps, and pilot a land vehicle through the sky, all around the world.

The necrotic blob didn't get to the war in time, so it craws into worm mountain and sleeps. My cultists are gathering up the dust of the destroyer and making pilgrimages to worm mountain to throw it in. If they are good enough at controlling undead they can survive the trip.


#56 A glossary would be nice, but a Pathfinder dictionary would be even better. I'm pretty sure the Webster's dictionary doesn't define level as "The strength and power of a character, monster, spell, or area of an adventure."

When I get a chance I will have to create a construct worm to reanimate and control ruined constructs. My worm people were not up to that task. Of the ones that chose druidism, some fled into the earth while about half of them just excepted the wrath of the nature god. The worm people who were separated through the segments became 2 young worm people.
Of the carrion of the battle field, it has gained some sentience, and this undead blob seems to be rising out of the river to seek the destroyer. This is how it remembers it's original mission as a legion of undead. The blob can "spit" horrible necrotic acid, probably at the destroyer's minions.


I didn't understand 51.
Green Tea Gamer you must have 52 because everybody was discussing how previous entries should be worded.


Let's take an example. You are running a game set in that world where casting spells require killing something. Human or animal sacrifice, or you turn some plants into desert. Someone does research to find a way around that. At a cost of 30 research, they rediscover the riches method. For 100GP of precious metal and or gems per spell level, they can cast spells. It costs them a feat, but they can teach others. The valuables are destroyed at a subatomic level.
Similarly, you could tell them, that spell is unavailable but these other spells are. If they don't take one of what is offered, they retain the points. They can spend them on designing a catapult, a gun, or getting the party rogue the feat for critical striking undead. (You pry the neck bones apart at the joints in most cases)
This is a version of the carrot and stick approach.


I got caught in the flow of conversation. Instead of a non specific roll, how about Research Points!
An hour of general research gets you one point, whether reading texts, talking to an expert, dissecting a monster, talking to a monster, conducting an experiment, ect. You have to make a knowledge check to identify a thing before you can gain research points from it. Modifiers include, but are not limited to...
Wizard reading texts +2
Tome about a spell they can cast +2
In their wheelhouse means it's something within their school, bloodline, relating to their deity, ect. +5
Interrogating or dissecting a favored enemy gets the favored enemy bonus in points.
The list goes on.

Spending research points is similar.
Learning how to prepare and or cast a standard spell. 10
Rare spell(non-core rulebook or alien to game world) +10
Finding how to make a standard item. 10
Rare item (non-core rulebook or alien to game world). +10
Spell or item is in their wheelhouse. -5
Racial item or spell. -6 if their exact race, -3 if half
Favored enemy bonus is subtracted from the cost for bane spells and items against the foe.
Spell or item is of same exact alignment -2
Spell or item is of same facet alignment -1
(If the researcher is lawful and making a holy avenger for a friend)
Spell or item is of opposite exact alignment +2
Spell or item is of opposite facet alignment +1


More like...
PC: I would like a version of fireball, but with sound.
GM: No source for such a spell exists
PC: Ok, I made my roll to research it.
GM: You found out you have to consult with a monster or outsider that uses sound as a weapon. There are rumors of a purple dragon living in the faraway mountains.
This isn't realism, it's fantasy cannon. The wizard has to call up or contact monsters to research magic.


How do you integrate the Insanity Spell that makes characters long term confused with this point system?


Meeting with other wizards in a secret club, named after your school, where you copy spells from each other's books.
#43 First edition style things are called primordial. If a primordial Troll gets chopped up, the pieces all start to regenerate. After the 5th generation of this it becomes a normal, less magical, Troll. A Primordial Potion of Poison is save or die.


That's why I planned for my residents to cast the spell to expand it.
He or she also said the castle was the exception to the ceiling limit.

Some of my worm people have studied druidism. While they weren't invited to join the ritual, they have come out of the earth to control weather. Everyone is just now noticing all the dark clouds they were pulling in to call lightning from. They are now making it rain.

Puss the Worm meanwhile is bringing in more than a legion of walking, worm filled, zombies to attack the hunters from behind. Destruction is right in my wheelhouse. The tree's council of gods let me join and the enemy of my friend is fair game. :)

The mad, metal, hydra meanwhile has started chucking big, hunks, of bedrock at the destroyer yelling, "Rock Fight!" It's radiating a rage spell for miles.


Thanks. Even for a homebrew item I'm going to reduce the word count. While a good PC Drow will probably have black fur, that is possibly better left inferred. I could say the muffin acts as a tangle foot bag and does 2D6 sub-dual. I'm not sure what Microsoft Word didn't catch.
Is this any better?
Rod of Reckless Casting
This rod grants Quick and dirty casting 3 times a day.
Quick and dirty Casting.(Metamagic)
You cast a spell quickly, but you set off a random magic flash.
Prerequisite: Non-lawful caster, non-book memorized spell.
Benefit: Sorcerers and Savage Mages can cast a spell as a swift action. The Random Magic Flash, which could be good or bad, happens 100%.
Normal: Sorcerers could not cast quickened spells who's casting time is more than a full round action. Quicken spell adds 4 levels to the spell.
“This particular rod is made of a strange silvery metal. On the side is an engraving of 10 known gods bowing down before a goddess on a throne.” Knowledge religion check 20 to recognize Eris, and tell that the command word is “Hail Eris”.
Construction/sale cost: 100,000/200,000
Effect chart (or use any similar)
All saves are DC20.
1) The rod channels positive energy 5D6.
2) The rod channels negative energy 5D6.
3) It rains copper pieces for 5 minutes around the rod user. Total of 1000 copper pieces. They are slippery like a grease spell, do a point of subdual each combat round, and will instead distract anyone wearing a metal helmet.
4) A 5D6 Soundball (like a fireball but sonic) shoots out of the end of the rod.
5) The nearest dead creature rises as a ghoul till the rod is used again.
6) Everyone within 50 feet must Fort save or become a squirrel for 50 minutes. Living or dead, they will change back at the end of the effect.
7) H sized muffin falls on random being. The muffin acts as a tangle foot bag and does 2D6 sub-dual.
8) The spell takes solid form and acts out its purpose. Feather fall would be a feather stuffed pillow that carries the subject gently to the ground.


Next year I won't post my entry anywhere else. I didn't get that from anonymity. I never use my real name on any boards. This frequent using words to mean something different than their actual definition is a topic for one of the general boards.
What did you think about the item it's self?


I'm 4 hours, 11 minutes too late.
Arrrrrrg!
I can try again next year, so any suggestions? Is it balanced? Would it have been rejected anyway?

Where do I submit this?


The ritual I devised lets the summoned persist till the contract is fulfilled. Bodyguard duty gives them the chance to collect the souls of assassins, and carve the beings summoning name on every skull. If they can convince the summoner to name their kid the same name, the contract can become inherited. A vain summoner might never realize that their soul wasn't that important. In the case of some demon summoners, they were already headed for the pit.

That dragon, which looks more like a metal hydra, isn't hunting the Dogarr anymore. The conflicts of it's original substance, crystals, and my worm people, have driven it delightfully mad. It is now trying to cut a great hole to let the crystal people out. This will destroy the planet, but rebuilding is not in my portfolio. I am already sending select creations to other planes where I am establishing a toehold. The worm people who have been swayed to other gods, and the worm riddled undead who have been dominated by evil clerics, are on their own.
I joined the nature god's council of gods, because they let me. Some of my worm people have even embraced druidism. All the other Deities and things can fight and or prepare for the apocalypse and new world building as they see fit.

While other deities were busy retrenching, some of my most gifted worm people performed the ritual deep in a mountain(Worm Mountain). Some adventurers attacked, but their low levels made them more sacrifices. When the magic died down, I was remade, as a full diety, and one rogue lived to tell the tale.
I have 3 forms and names. Kyuss is more or less property of Hasbro and is returning to Greyhawk to demand a place in the pantheon. All the previous gods who wronged him are more or less dead and gone. This is the only one who can take his original human form.
Puss the Worm or The Wormlord can appear as a Worm that Walks(humanoid shaped swarm of maggots) or as a worm animated baby dragon. If a pantheon forms he wants to be the chaotic evil god of all things being destroyed by worms so they can be remade by other gods.
Primevia seems a fitting name for the place where I rose again.

I am altering some of the Dogarr, into naga like worn beings that can spit acid and lead their still living cousins into the mountains. I think I created worm people before, with higher intelligence and wisdom than the stock they came from. When I am restored to my former glory, I will have a better idea what I am doing. A few of my creations are even going to try to burrow into the dragon and take it over. A monster after my own heart. I wish them luck.

The great flood and the earthquakes have only swelled my armies ranks. If the dragon dies, I call dibs on the body. Also, if I can get the pendant, it's sacrifice will aid in the ritual to remake me.

The surfacers are gathering for war. So be it! The Destroyer is bound and blockaded, thus we may turn our attentions properly to the rest of this miserable prison. We will send forth the gets first, their chains clenched in the claws of our kyton minions. Once they have bled the opposition, we will send our champions and centuries to join the fray.

To war, my gemstone guardians and crystal cavalry. To War!

My Dogarr can easily destroy the gets! I need to know now if you are with us or against us?! Make your choice, Culex! I am sure the worm riddled dead of Puss the Wyrm will have fun with the gets! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Even dead demons can rise as undead. My army joined the Dogarr forces before the first attempted ambush.


I was some sort of deity, before a party of adventurers destroyed me. A small shred of my essence found a home in a dead baby dragon. Puss the Wyrm I now call myself. Now I have found a planet where the new races do not burn their dead. By turning all unprotected dead into worm riddled, contagious monsters I am raising an army. I am also creeping into the dreams of adventurers and teaching them rituals. Especially The Open Grave, which will allow the cult I am fostering to return me to completeness.
Puss Worms. Fine vermin. Can cast animate dead on a corpse. Can kill like a rot grub. This can be added to any corporeal undead including mummies and Morge.
Puss the Wyrm is an insane, CE, undead, demigod. As it is concerned more with itself, it is open to Alliances.

Possibly an alternate Glorion where there was a war involving magical nukes. Joe got lucky and further exposure causes faster splitting or additional mutations. It could be the result of devil fruit, so Joes cannot swim. Another idea is OJ was actually a GI Joe and they pretty much wiped out Cobra. Many pursue military training fearing Cobra will rise again.


2: Clouded Vision The mutant has something wrong with their vision.

1st level) They can see nothing beyond 30 feet but if they are an Oracle or Mutant up to 30 feet they have apparent dark vision.

5th level) Oracles and Mutants have up to 60 feet apparent darkvision.

10th level) Oracles and Mutants have blindsense out to 30 feet.

15th level) Oracles and Mutants have blindsight out to 15 feet.

Special: If they use glasses to improve their sight to blurred, they must take the glasses off to use any ocular powers. A generous GM will grant beings with neither class microscopic vision out to 5 feet.

147: Grandma got run over by a reindeer. You saw it happen. She showed up under the tree, bandaged up, Christmas day, but you know Santa exists. After that you got some great Christmas presents, including a wand of stabilize, and a wooden sword that's bane to undead.


Either convert it to trained wolf now, let it take levels as a monster, make him wait till he can transform it into his animal companion (summoned creature), make them take a separate animal companion(summoned, undying, ect) and treat the dog as a friend, or consider the german shepard as a hireling because he feeds it. You can roll a D6 and reroll 6s, Hail Eris.


If a spellcaster has a charm spell, and one of the "monsters" has a very low chance of saving, give the caster that creature for the day. They will only tell the charmer what they know of troop movements and environmental changes, but your charmed goblin will distract the big bad's human shield. When the charm wears off, a lone goblin will panic and run off.


Another poster is doing a modern campaign. If wizards lose control of their magic by over using it, Then they can only cast extra spells using quick and dirty magic. I'm going to add to my Magic Flash topic too.


Look at my Savage mage, and please consider the related tables for Wizards losing control of their magic.


Llamias of various power levels may have worked with Baal on the premise that only humans would be affected. They are not happy with deity loving humans coming back. That wasn't part of the deal!


I was looking through the topic to see if I already posted 512. That's how I found this...
237. Belts through the ages. An in depth treatise into the development of belt-making across the centuries. Potentially could give some small bonus should the pcs ever seek to identify or craft a magical melt.
The book obviously has this misspelling several times, so if the reader just assumes the author meant belt every time the book is still useful.


Ritual 23: Wake The Dead. A form of raise dead that involves getting outsiders to give someone back, along with things you don't want.
Success: The remains become the living being, with consequences.
1) The now living person is minus 1-4 temporarily lost levels, which can afflict a volunteer at the ritual. The levels return one a day.
2) Undead of at least equal CR are created somewhere in the same plane. 3) The deity or monster can pick one living person to die, apparently by the same means the now living person died. Someone may suffer spontaneous combustion or drown in an otherwise dry room.
4) The person is depressed because they spent time in heaven. Treat as distracted till they can unload emotionally to someone. This can be the one who brought them back, a bartender, or someone.
You can roll randomly or have all take place because this ritual is done frivolously.
Failure: The remains become an undead, carrying whatever disease or poison killed them. Thus if mummy rot they become a mummy.
Modifiers: Knowledge religion and the planes. +3 for every wound a participant takes during the ritual. Difficulty is 10 plus 3 for every level or hit dice the creature being raised had.
Cost: 1000 GP for every level or hit dice the creature being raised had. Livestock sacrificed counts.


I like it.


512 Spells to Kill the Ignorant by Divivch. This traveling spellbook contains Magic Missile, Cone of Cold, Cloudkill, and several other spells of the GM's choosing. If anyone tries to burn it the fire goes out as it generates a cloud kill spell effect. The book won't even be singed.


I once tried to create an abusively realistic dungeon, and all the weapons were rusty and could cause lockjaw. I'll try to find where I've statted it up.


5-Ecumenical Church of the Hour. This is a sort of inclosed plinth. All the clerics who can't afford a separate church work here.
Resources- for 10,000 GP worth of items or treasure, you get all the clerical spells cast in an hour you can use. Material components such as diamonds must be provided by the customer, but focus and expendable items count against the fee. The feat that speeds up the casting of a spell is known and taught to any who work here.

507 is about the computer game. Some argue about what a computer is, while others claim Glorion is a computer game and thus you cannot have a computer within it.

I would price it as pearl of power and have it made using blood money and the spell needed so that if you use one with a component cost greater than 1gp it gives you a paper cut, and the cursed version of it gives bleed damage that removes spell levels prepared and then causes regular bleed and scurries off with a +15 stealth and finds a place to hide. Remove curse turns it into a single use rescribing scroll.

You don't have to use this in games you GM.

The monster scroll you describe, however, is a lot of fun. Just needs hit and XP points.

Maybe the homunculus' creator was trying to do something very bad. The homunculus might be targeting adventurers. He might be going after inns specifically. He might also be trying to raise his creators remains. As normal homunculi are not casters, he is seeking an item or artifact he can use to wake the dead.


Vellum is lamb skin. Some maps and things from medieval times have survived to the present day.
