When I was a kid I had a toy monster truck that had a ramp and a little mold you could press colored foil in to make little foil cars for your truck to smash. of course after the first 5 minutes the foil is useless but you could still use regular old tinfoil to make the cars.

a card game could implement a destruction element similarly. create a process where you go through steps to "build" cards, like a simplified version of model kits. cutting to correct size, drawing out borders and rules, applying stickers for artwork ect. basically encourage kids to make their cards from scratch, and if they happen to want it to look like the pictures on the box, why yes we do sell custom card stock and sticker sheets...

hell, take it a step further. Sell booster packs of stickers, include rare stat stickers that come along with a "sticker licence" card saying you're allowed to use that stickers effect on your homemade cards. but of course that licence can only be applied to one card at a time, better buy some more boosters.

Yeah, I really dig the open ended style, its like a fantasy Hitman map, multiple targets with their own routines, opportunity for disguise antics. its even got a bathroom for you to stand in, mowing down mook troops as they bottleneck at the door.

Wait, so liesel just sits around playing tiddlywinks or something, waiting for a national disaster? The ritual is every five years, but there's no way of predicting when one happens, or if one does occur whether it will have a lasting impact. Does she have a sleeper cell ready to mobilize a sacrifice with strike force precision and timing at moment's notice?

If it didn't cause final death you'd get situations like a harvester teaming up with a reborn to come and euthanize him every hundred years or so.

wait, how does harvesting even work with reborn? do the years the reborn spends unaware of their abilities count? what about the time between incarnations?

I forgot to bring it up back in the Berlin area, but if Levec's got resistance hiding out in his holodeck, why not just turn the loving thing off for a second?

Also: His Hitler patch disappears between the portrait shot and the comic panel, which means he apparently gave himself a holographic mustache.

Oblivion contains the most ludicrously bullshit setpiece 3/4ths of the way in. The beginning of the module is kind of a cakewalk then the second quarter only really has one fight. Then comes the setpiece that will probably kill half of the party, no joke, and is a series of skill checks rather than combat so the problem won't just keel over and die. Then comes the boss fights. It's legit like a false sense of security thing.

Anyone want to take bets on what dumb mechanic they'll use for the setpiece? My guess is on the party having to run through a operating factory belt.

I took a crack at making a model of that kitchen appliance in barrier peaks.



I guess they're meant to be counter-top vending machines?
The other thing described sounds like a scaled up version, with the buttons replaced with a intercom since its for larger items.

Atrabilious
A low-level (3-HD) fiend which looks like a skeleton surrounded by insects. It sets traps in remote areas then dares adventurers to go and get the treasure there, which is at least a neat hook for a tempter-type devil. It enjoys watching people getting hurt by its traps too, so it's always got an excuse to be hanging around when the PCs finally twig to what's going on and turn on it.

Good for low-level adventures!

"Why are we climbing down this ravine, again? I don't trust these footholds to support our weight."

"It'll be fine! Besides, that guy we passed by down the path said we could keep his sword he dropped down there"

"... That was a corpse covered in ants."

"Yeah! That guy!"

THE GUIDE
The homeless guy who helps new bums find dry places to sleep is as much a guide as the financial advisor making 500K a week doing success seminars for Fortune 500 companies.

TABOOS
Guides only have one, but itís a biggie: They cannot walk the path they teach. A boxing coach can never step in the ring, a business advisor can never join the company, the matchmaker can never find love. Guides must teach but cannot do, or else they step outside of the role and lose their connection to the archetype.

Isn't being a homeless guide contradictory? unlike the other examples it's physically impossible to not practice what you preach, because what you're advising is how not to literally die on the streets.

Iirc the running theory behind greenskinned Frankenstein is they used green make up for the black and white films to add contrast and it just stuck when the switch to colour was made.
