and what about the formal suit over-laying from above, what's the significance of that?

and what about the formal suit over-laying from above, what’s the significance of that?

Lazy texturing? Insignificant coincidence? Law in chaos? I don’t think so! I fear that it could be prophecy; pray that it is not! Luedwig feels no impending threat of bursting-butterflies so there is hope.

I have dozens of these little gems tucked away unmarked in my folders and have considered pulling my favourites into a single post; Devs, untapped potential! Let’s find our best dozen or twenty and place a spawning trigger in front of each. What will the trigger do? I don’t care tbh. But something, anything to acknowledge the existence of these little accidental beauties would be welcome.

Reflections in a Mirror

Reflections in a Mirror


…and Luedwig is sickened by it’s stubborn refusal to simply fade into the backdrop of his day-to-day. When I say, “sickened!”, I mean it both figuratively and literally. Figuratively in that he would very much like to have a quest arc with prophecy at it’s core, to have multiple endings. Multiple endings that might then influence a character’s future quests, “24-hours” or even lives. Too much work…

When Luedwig feels “The Prophet Within” begin to stir, he gets very nervous and very sick(literally!). With a long rumbling belch, the contents of which are reported by several named Troglodytes, to be “Not half bad.” Luedwig releases his butterflies and falls asleep. The images remain but the “Prophecy Proper” is largely forgotten. Hags believe that some of the prophecy can be recovered by studying “the touchings of cloth”.

We are so lucky that I am not the DM. 🙂

Dispensation

I have always wanted a quest or optional objective that required a dead man. The two scatter-noggins, Luedwig and Jasperpoo, Jasperpoo is Luedwig’s Cosmetic Companion, a Black Panther Cub, have been brainstorming “Outside-the-Box”. This is what Jasper came up with as an objective that would be worth Luedwig’s 10% quest XP. Luedwig thinks that the shrines would make better Salt and Pepper shakers but Hot Dog dispensing shrines would be pretty cool as well. Too bad they don’t take Mysterious Remnants…

Loggin

This first sound file aired on DDOCast in October 2013. A Warforge befriends a child on the Island of Korthos. He dreams of being more than a killing machine and he changes his name to Sled. Bear and Ms. T perform O’l Korthos to close out the benefit concert that was held for the children of the Saltire District in Stormreach.

Kobold Poetry: Kobold youngsters are up to no good in the Water Works and are dreaming of becoming pirates. Warships built of prisoner’s little parts float along the sewer floor until adventurers come down and bust up the party… 😉 Have you ever seen the tiny boats floating out from the sewer grates in the harbour? Out past the hungry crabs, the crash of the waves, to the distant shores of a kobold’s scheme?

DDOCast Last:
It is said that a great Seer once veiled his vision of What-Was-To-Come in a sort of prayer to the powers that be;

I would live to see,
Do I to dare to ask?
One hundred Thirty-Ton;
Tarrasque, Cerulean.

………………………..DDOCast 394, go listen! 😉 The guests all have some really great ideas. Maybe too large for a Free to VIP pack but still; great ideas!

Poor puppy dogs. This quest in the Cerulean Hills has the Blues written all over it. If Eberron had any bard-builds that could actually sing, of course. The underlining message of this segment, I believe it was my 5th, is actually right in line with DDOCast 394. I find Patrick’s choice of the Cerulean Hills Slayer Zone to be bang on with my own thoughts for what I might like to see in a future raid. His desire to see an awakened Tarrasque laying waste to the Hills is inspired, if perhaps out of reach. One open zone that is host to both beginning and end-game content? Nice! Could it be pulled off? Not convinced 😉
