    Wah-hey! That medicine was not so bitter after all!

    Thanks, Zappo!

    Aww, crap, don't tell my players. So far I've kept them sated with the ol' standby: Piles of Dead Bad Guys.

    In fact I think if you are going to write an adventure with broad applicability to all sorts of heroes, you need to stick to the Big Three:

    1) money/loot
    2) curiosity
    3) piles of dead bad guys

    Those three components can motivate 99% of the adventurers out there. I hope that my Amnesia entry is adaptable to all three.

    The heck you say! So how's the bracket looking? I don't want to face Wicht!

    Thank you. And good job yourself!


    And now a couple comments on my entry, since it is judged. Nemm is right as to my 'inspiration' for the Chaos Stone being Warhammer. And likely the fact I have been immersing myself in lovecraft lately (and Brian Lumley) contributed to the madness and the bugs.

    I also had about a dozen hooks in mind for the scenario but failed to include them for the sake of brevity. (I will do better) The size of the fire beetle was one. Since the 'normal' fire beetle grows only two feet in length, a gargantuan specimen would surely be worth some money. Also, borrowing from a well used plot device, one of the dead NPC adventurers could be somebody of importance and the PCS might have the job of finding the body. Or a sage might well have discovered the existance of the chaos stone in history and by putting 1 and 1 and 1 together and getting three, the sage might well direct the party to an 'artifact' of power. Of course said artifact is more than useless. It is downright dangerous and a hazard to any that possess it.

    As for the dog, I did not mean for it to be a spoiler for the whole adventure. I merely meant to suggest that it could explain the way the first party meant its demise. That is, it could serve as a warning that magic might backfire at the players.

    And yes, I forgot to mention how crippled the rogue is. Mentally however I pictured him limping around with a slight twist, a mad leer and a bent leg. Kind of a non-hunchback igor.

    Hey! you are going to make me blush. :rolleyes:

    Modesty however makes me admit I am as prone to dumb game ideas as the next guy. It all depends on the ingredients. As I cross my fingers for undead in the next round.

    It could be worse. Willie Walsh could be playing. I would personally like to see how he does with this.

    And for what it is worth I really liked your adventure idea, I could see me using it sometime. Amnesia and subtle plot twists within the scenario make for a good fantasy mystery IMO.

    <Wulf's players go wild in the Iron DM balcony when he wins the first match>

    Ack, we know you have it in ya. I just figured you saved it all for the famous Sunday game.

    Seriously, Iron DM is a fun idea. I'm looking forward to the coming rounds. Us vulgar Americans will try not to get too rowdy up in the balcony.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, Nemmerle never replied to this?
