Cursed Blades (Swordtember)


I've already contributed to the Swordtember on the Instagram, but I realized I haven't posted any random table in a really long time! Soo, prepare a d10!

  1. It permanently attaches itself to the wielder's hand
  2. All damage dealt by the sword is also drained from the wielder's Hit Points
  3. Wielder becomes deaf and mute when the sword is drawn
  4. All healing magic directed at the sword's owner drains his/her HP instead of healing
  5. Sword hits automatically but deals maximum of 1 damage
  6. Wielder becomes blind for 1d6 minutes for each natural 1 rolled to-hit
  7. Each time the sword is drawn it drains 1 HP from its wielder
  8. The blade attracts insects and vermin - also the giant ones
  9. Each time the sword is drawn it produces a very loud sound of a bell
  10. The sword deals 1d4 additional damage but if its wielder is on full HP all attacks miss

Step up in the cross-section mapping

I love cross-section maps. In many cases, they are much more evocative and inspiring than ordinary maps of the regions (I'm not talking about dungeons and hexcrawl). And Pain rulebook will contain mainly such maps.

Also, I realized that I made some progress with my maps. Here is an example from January 2012:

And here is the most recent one I made for my current project:


Of course, the second one is much more abstract. But I fell in love with artpunk.
