    Default Submission Thread for the "From the Playground 2.0 Compendium"

    I have culled out all the old dead links from the original (locked) compendium. All the magical items and creatures/templates/fauna in the old compendium have been lost due to the system change.

    So we have work to do, playgrounders! If you think your homebrew is worth showing to the world at large, and has been vetted and Peachified by your fellow 'Brewers, then post your submissions to this thread, and they will be added to the new "...From the Playground 2.0 (Compendium)".

    A few items of business.

    1) Please format your submissions following the scheme of the Compendium, and note what header(s) they belong under. For additional ease on my part, please
    a) alphabetize your submissions.
    b) include in the header if your sorcerer/wizard spell is necromancy, evocation, etc.

    2) Format your submission exactly as you want it in the compendium. Do not parse your links, as I will be using the quote function to copy and paste them.

    They should look like this:

    Header
    A Name of the Homebrew: Brief Description That's Short Enough to Stay on One Line [Your Name]
    B Name of the Homebrew: Brief Description That's Short Enough to Stay on One Line [Your Name]
    Do not use bold, italics, or anything else. If you do, I have to go in and remove the formatting, which makes me angry.

    P.S. If, for historical reasons, you want to see the old thread, complete with brief descriptions (but dead links), follow this link. For the old submission thread that I am not going to sort through, go here.

    Now Krimm,
    As much as I respect you and your homebrews, I'd prefer if you formatted and submitted them in the manner that I requested. Otherwise, this thing will get quite out of hand with everyone saying, "Look at such and such a link", and I'll never actually finish it.

    I'm putting these into the categories and alphabetizing them (or putting them by spell level) within the categories. I hope that's OK (and that some of mine will make it in).

    For spells, should they be listed for all classes they apply to? That's what I'm doing; please correct me if I shouldn't.

    (8) Prestige Classes
    Willing Thrall (Martial Specialist): For males who really want to show their dedication to a special drow priestess in their life [Queenfange]

    (21) 1-Level Cleric Spells
    Anatomical Precision: If your next attack is successful, you cause your target to drop what they’re holding [Queenfange]
    Replenish: Regain 1d3 hp per round, lasting one round per caster level, to a maximum of (caster level x 2) hp restored [Queenfange]

    (21) 2-Level Cleric Spells
    Vitality Tap: Inflict 1d4 Strength damage and gain the same Strength bonus for 1 minute/level [Queenfange]

    (21) 3-Level Cleric Spells
    Blood Sweat: Your target sweats blood, taking 1d4+1 temporary Constitution damage [Queenfange]
    Metatarsus Warp: Warps the bones in your target’s feet, causing 1d4 damage and a -2 dodge bonus to AC, plus additional damage if they attempt to free themselves [Queenfange]

    (21) 4-Level Cleric Spells
    Olfactory Suppression: Permanently render a selected area free of all smells [Queenfange]

    (26) 2-Level Sorcerer/Wizard Spells (Transmutation)
    Metatarsus Warp: Warps the bones in your target’s feet, causing 1d4 damage and a -2 dodge bonus to AC, plus additional damage if they attempt to free themselves [Queenfange]

    (26) 3-Level Sorcerer/Wizard Spells (Abjuration)
    Olfactory Suppression: Permanently render a selected area free of all smells [Queenfange]

    (33) Creatures
    Dire Gazebo: Gargantaun Aberration, CR 13 [Queenfange]

    Thanks for taking on the huge task on compiling this! Heck, it even prods me into remembering that I ought to work on and post more homebrew stuff....

    Sorry, I don't have any ideas, just my homebrew base class (in noparse form so you can just copy/paste):

    I posted one (or two?) others on this board but I've since come to dislike them quite a bit.

    EDIT: Actually, I reread my "Revolver Mage" base class and it seems pretty solid.

    This is what I talked to Afroakuma about when he tried to recreate the compendium, only to see it fail. I had written up an initial post of information on how to format the compendium, as well as a few volunteers to run the thing: the password was to be given out only on a "you're a trusted member of the community" basis, to prevent abuse or shenanigans. Still, it would require a Mod's permission (they might not allow the shared account), a few people willing to put some time into it, and so forth.

    If you're interested, however, I could probably write up what I had prepared if you give me a day or so.

    I'd be willing to help too, to put in a little more time organizing things when no one else was available. Of course, I haven't been around much lately, so I dunno if I'd qualify as a "trusted member of the commuity." I would really like to see this get off the ground though (and I know it's a lot of work).

    The qualifications I had for "trusted" were very lax. They basically come down to the following:

    A: Are your posts neatly organized enough that you can handle the mess of forum code that is the compendium?

    B: Can you be relied upon to remember to sign off of/not fiddle with a shared account (if such a thing is even allowed)?

    C: Can you be relied upon to not do something stupid like delete the whole thing and replace it with pictures of cats?

    If you meet requirements A, B, and C, you qualify. It's just a bad idea to have 1,000 people able to alter it, so I wanted some means of (if this even works) keeping a limit.

    I dunno, C is so tempting... Well, B and C seem pretty easy, and I'm very organized, so A shouldn't be an issue. I guess for now we'll just wait and see if it's needed, based on how much stuff is submitted?

    Sorry for the double post, but I'd really like to see this get finished. Hence: BUMP.

    However, it's somewhat justified in that I have a new prestige class to add!

    One question about this compendium, is why no section for homebrew martial disciplines? Or soulmelds, mysteries, invocations, vestiges, and the rest of the flying circus? At the very least, the above five should make an appearance, people like those. Utterances and such, well, everyone universally knows that the truenamer isn't really viable because of poor writing.

    Because I, not having ToB, never think about those. I just used the categories from the old compendium.

    Submit something that doesn't have a category, and I'll create a category for it.

    EDIT: Queen, your PrC has been posted.

    i would bet that they would be fine with this. i know that shared accounts have been used in the pbp forums, so i would assume that if they were satisfied that the users were responsible about it, that they would be ok with it here, especially when it helps out with the compendium projects that are always pretty large and demanding.

    you should have some sort of review process for oncoming editors (get a few more senior playgrounders that want to be permanent members to act as a review board so that you are not the only one having to deal with requests for the password, etc).

    All is updated.

    Draco, I corrected the spelling of "Artillary" to "Artillery" and for the last class used just the "Society Member" title. If there's an issue with either of those, please let me know and I will happily go and fix them. If anyone else has noticed any errors, likewise inform me.

    I also added a category for NPC classes in the index in light if the recent submissions.

    The spelling was something that got fixed in the actual post, but never in my extended signature I think, no problem... as for shortening the name for that one PrC, I SPECIFICALLY said that was a possible course of action, so I would have to be barking mad to object to it.


    Now for some critters... I considered if the organs should be grouped together in the final list, but since they all contain links to eachother and making exceptions to filing systems is rarely a good idea, I am going to say don't do it... your choice though... (if you want me to do that, I can redo this post to de-alphabetize it into two alphabetized lists. I DO suggest keeping the sperate links to the chat threads rather than the contests threads for the contest entries. I am also going ahead and including Castor and Pollux here, since you don't have any better place to put dragons with a few character levels. For similar reasons I suggest retaining the link to the Mepholk build lay out that Keld was kind enough to do.

    CREATURES

    Accursed Conductor: comment HERE. (Incomplete still as of August 2009) [DracoDei]

    Acorn Folly: A creature with a unique weakness. Meant to be defeated more via good tactical flexiability (AKA willingness to actually retreat the first time it is encountered) and research than just wailing on it. Should only be used once against any group of players EVER, and never as a random encounter. Ideally should have an entire adventure built around defeating it. [DracoDei]

    Astral Pack-Beast: For groups using psionics to travel the astral plane. Comment HERE. [DracoDei]

    Beige Dragon: Based on an idea in a single panel comic by Richard Burlew. Avatars of Mediocracy and Squareness. Features a Mundane Presence and a Breathweapon of Pure Elemental Ennui.

    Castor and Pollux: A pair of VERY well equipped wing dragons working as a border patrol. Winner of the First Alchemyprime Monstrous Contest. [DracoDei]


    Dark Hearts:
    Literally pulsing with negative energy these repair the undead near them, and damage the living. Comment HERE. [DracoDei]

    Devotion Bower: Firmly rooted but with mobile limbs and launchable thorns, these servants of Allurehn grant refuge to star-crossed lovers (of the True rather than Flighty kind) in an extra-dimensional space inside themselves. Comment HERE. [DracoDei]

    Empty Skin: Macabre, but not always aggressive. Freak your characters/players out without a single die rolled... Intelligent servants for the necromancer just starting to come into his true power.[DracoDei]

    True Fairy Dragon: Fairy Dragons done as True Dragons, with 12 age catagories and so on. Currently a work in progress (as of August 2009). [DracoDei]

    Favored of the Traveler God: What Lichdom is to the Death domain, this is to the Travel domain. Comment HERE. [DracoDei]


    Fiend Fungus:
    BMCM (Bio-Magical Counter-Measures) for evil. No direct threat. Just an Evil Alignment and lots of HD. [DracoDei]

    Floating Lungs: (based around the Shout spell). Feel free to suggest a better name...[DracoDei]

    Free Spirit: comment HERE - The ultimate observers. [DracoDei]

    Gut Snake: Undead intestines that fight with constriction, filth, and odor. [DracoDei]

    Giraffe-a-pump: A creature both for completists(sp) (HOW is there a massive city in the center of the barren desert???) and those who like a little bit of innocence/cuteness in the mix. [DracoDei]

    Hopping Stomach: Spits acid. [DracoDei]

    Pez-Ants: Suggestion I came up with to be commoners of Candyland. [DracoDei]

    Rolling Eyeball: Scouts, spies, and roving patrols. Zero offensive capabilities unless taken from something with a gaze attack or eye-rays. [DracoDei]

    Smokey Floater: comment HERE - A way to keep the Smog down in large settlements... just don't let them get too greedy... [DracoDei]


    Soda Vulture:
    A scavenging elemental based on a pun on the term "Sotto Voce" (meaning "Under the Breath"). [DracoDei]

    The First Word and The Final Word: Two unique outsiders sprung from the ponderings of gods and mortals alike on tactical trade-offs. Comment HERE. [DracoDei]

    Lord of Rest: (discussion thread is HERE.) Animated beds of unequaled comfort. [DracoDei]

    Martyr Flitter: A gift from the Heavens that can be used to store up positive energy to be released (by killing it) to heal the living and damage the undead. [DracoDei]

    Masooze: Intelligent Oozes that are specifically designed to give spa treatments. Another one of my pun creatures. [DracoDei]

    Mepholk: Snuggly anthropomorphic skunks... a SMALL spin-off of my most in-depth creation ever (the wereskunks). Comment HERE. Keld Denar was kind enough to do a 32 point optimized character build lay out HERE. [DracoDei]

    M.I.R.V. Griffon: A Griffon that can split into smaller ones as it dives... a joke that should be well enough executed that your players will be challenged despite the underlying pun. [DracoDei]

    Warp Hog: Like a wart hog, but after it hits something it instantaneously Dimension Doors away to do it again. [DracoDei]

    Wing Dragons: Masters of aerial speed and skill Comment HERE. This is my second to most detailed work (the most detailed will not be posted for a while, if ever). For specific examples see Castor and Pollux. [DracoDei]





    P.S. Set aside SEVERAL posts for critters in the thread... I think Bhu and VT alone might be pushing the characters per post limit for one post... maybe even two.

    Is there any room for 4e Homebrews in this new Compendium? If there is, then I would be happy to add all the stuff I've made. If this is going to be 3.5e D&D only, well then that's too bad .
    My Homebrew
    Currently DMing: Heroes on a Sea of Swords - IC - OOC - OOC II - OOC III
    Many thanks to the very talented Kymme for making an Avatar of my incredibly-specific D&D character!
