June 14 etr

Description: A round room 7 yards across. In the center is an ugly statue of an ogre head with Opals for eyes.

Opal Eyes: If a player touches the opal eyes with a part of their body or with an object (like a glove or prybar), they must make resist a roll vs Charm cast with skill 20. The charm effect lasts for 1 minute, and the spell compels its subject to attack "Their friends, companions, and accomplices". The Opal eyes loose their effect if taken from the room.

Treasure: Two 7.5 Carat Opals, worth $3018.75 each. It takes a ST 20 check to remove them, or breaking the DR 15 HP 15 stone head.

Entrances: Three stone archways, evenly spaced

June 15 etr

Description: a round natural cavern 9 yards across. A blazing pillar of fire sits in the center, perhaps three yards across.

The Pillar: Does 4d6 burning to anyone in the center, and 1d6 on a momentary touch. It counts as essential fire

Vision: +0 (full light)
Hearing: -3 (roaring fire)

entrances: four natural entrances, evenly spaced.

Monsters: Two Fire Elementals (From DFRPG Monsters OR Living Infernos from DF 9)* with will 18. They call themselves "Scorch" and "Ash". They're rather talkative, asking about news of the outside world, and asking if they have anything interesting to burn (exotic substances that burn well are best). Scorch and Ash will happily talk and provide information even on a neutral reaction. Subjects they might talk about include the current name of the king, what the characters have seen in the dungeon so far, and what the elementals know about the dungeon... they can tell you it used to be an elemental place of magic, then some dwarves came, then constructs showed up, then elder things, then drakes, then some necromancer, then more elder things..

When Inside the pillar of fire, Ash and Scorch heal 2 HP per second.

*These are only MOSTLY similar. Living infernos can have a much nastier aura, DFRPG fire elementals have a ranged attack.

Treasure: The cave is covered in small nuggets of copper and silver: the equivalent of 206 bronze coins ($206, 4 lbs) and 32 silver coins ($640, .6 lbs). The Fire elementals aren't attached to this, but if the players didn't give them anything interesting to burn, they will get possessive of the drops, and will even fight to defend them, but give up quickly if the fight turns against them.

Entrances: The north door has been smashed. The south door is a heavy ironbound door with an average (pick at +0) lock.

Monsters: Eight Shield Golems. They have orders to attack anything that comes through the southern door. They will ignore intruders from the northern door, even letting them pass (but not return). A Heraldry or Hidden Lore (Magic Items) check will identify them as Shield Golems, made by the order of the gear to hold positions: they are fairly cheap to make, but excellent defenders.

DX    10    Will  8    Move 5
IQ    6     Per   8 
HT    12    FP   NA    SM: 0

Dodge 11 Block 13 Parry 12  DR 4
Shield (14): 1d6 cr
Short sword (12): 1d6 imp OR 2d6 cut

Skills: Shield-14, shortsword -12

Traits: Traits: Autonotom, Cannot kick, Doesn't Breath, Eat, Drink, or Sleep, Extra Legs (four legs), Unliving, Immunity to Metabolic Hazards, Indomitable, Reprogramable, No Blood, Unfazeable, Unhealing, Mute, shield-wall training
Class: Construct
Notes: The Golems may block for each other, and may attack without penalty despite using large shields. Each sword is $400 and 2 lbs. Each shield is $90 and 25 lbs.

Unfortunately, I haven't been really keeping up with all the posts, but it's very interesting to verify on occasion that Eric the Red is still so persistent: a pretty amazing accomplishment.

It gave me a cool idea:

Would SJ Games be kind enough to honor this thread by posting a room description to the Daily Illuminator?

Even better, to coordinate with Eric the Red so that the chosen post hits the Illuminator page at the same time as it gets appended to this thread.

It would be a great promotion for Dungeon Fantasy as well.

Yeah, What I'm doing here isn't actually a full-blown version of the project: I started two weeks late, and I don't do week-ends, and I've missed here and there as well. Also, I've never run a Game of Dungeon Fantasy in Gurps. I'm pretty sure ajardoor has me beat on all of those counts. And I think the blog presentation is more polished as well. I'm thinking at the end I might post the new monsters on my blog, and maybe each level as a single post, but the raw text I've got here is pretty rough.

A Post in the Daily Illuminator would be most appropriate in December, when all of the projects are finishing up (thus letting you know who will actually finish), and a challenge for the next year could be issued. This thread would also be more impressive if we had everyone who started still posting. And its best when covering a wide range of projects.

Ajardoor, is there a reason your blog isn't on Gaming Ballistics GurpsDay Feed? I can't find it when I go looking for it.

Description: A 3 yard by 15 yard natural tunnel filled with glowing green stalagtites and stalagmites about 3 feet long each. The tunnel has a slight curve to it, just enough to not be able to look strait through it. It counts as uneven footing. The whole passage gives off a lot of ambient mana. those walking through the passage will hear an eirie, other-worldly tune coming from the crystals. Prospecting will reveal that the stone is not similar to the stone the passage starts and ends in. Hidden Lore (Elder Things) will reveal this passage is a sort of elder thing, a dimensional creature that thrives on elder thing energies, and is functionally a pair of moving portals. It also has a tendency to help the elder things escape places they are bound to.

Monsters: If attacked, the passage will respond as a living pit, but its not naturally aggressive, and will close off and flee if at all possible.

Mana: Very High
Vision: -2 (glow)
hearing: -2 (music)

Entrances: Natural Stone Caverns. They like to move about every 1d6/2+1 hours. Most moves are only a couple of dozen yards, but there is a one in six chance of a dramatic move. The two ends of the passage stay in the dungeon, on either sides of the portal, sometimes connecting the drake world and players world, and sometimes with both ends on a single side. A passage end can be "Called" by playing the music found in the tunnel (usually at -2 for the wrong instrument and -2 for playing from memory). The passage end will show up in about five minutes.

Description: A 5 yard by 7 yard square cavern running along the hall, sort of like an alcove. Three smooth stone blocks form a table and two benches in the center. Several smooth white balls the size of plums lie on the table.

Monsters: eight of the smooth white balls are very tiny eyes of death! use eye of death stats with the following changes:
  • ST and HP are 1
  • SM is -6.
  • Toxic damage is 1 point, resisted by HT-1, with range 10.
  • They can't fly higher than 3 feet above a surface
  • Their eye lenses are worth 1d6*$25 rather than 1d6*$100, and have a 50% chance to have been ruined by whatever killed the eye.
Treasure: six of the white balls are fleshy, somewhere between reptile eggs and fruit. An Alchemy or Hidden Lore (Elder Things) roll will identify them as "unhatching fruit". Unhatching fruit gives 10 temporary ER for 1 hour after consumption, but also grants nauseated for the same time period on a failed HT roll. They're each worth $200.

Entrances: The hall the room runs along, and an average wooden door at the back of the room.

Description: A 5 by 6 yard room. Six raised stone platforms large enough for human to lie down comfortably on. A strange black lichen-like webbing has grown on the ceiling.

Entrances: A single average wooden door leading to June 20.

Treasure: a set of six bronze rat amulets, each worth $20 and weighing half a pound

Description: A pair of 2 yard by 2 yard alcoves across from each other in a hallway 2 yards across. As you approach the alcoves (from either direction), you'll find a bronze plaque mounted on the wall, with the inscription:

To Pass, Wear the amulet of the rat king and speak his name.

Monsters: In Each Alcove is an Ogre Skeleton. They will not attack passerby who say "Polriket" or who are wearing any sort of rat amulet.

Treasure: Each Bronze plaque is $50 worth of bronze (1 lb).

Lighting: None (-10)
