+1 for excellent adventure seed idea. Clearly, a third lord must enter the fight wanting the coconut shells to mimic horses...

comment Which level for this spell?
Oh, so the spell cannot be turned off... Right, that makes sense although you would have to live near people who had the same spell make permanent otherwise, you cannot have human interactions of any kind. Not that attractive a prospect.

Why minus two charisma? I like pale people with weird white hair and blue lips... Maybe I'm just a goth... ^_~

comment Film Noir D&D Setting
I liked Noir. It had a large background and was well researched. I cannot comment on the rule set since I did not even bother reading it.

comment How do I construct an individual session as part of a larger campaign?
+1 I used to do things like that before I swapped to what I do now. I found that it took too long and I did not have the time to do a good job of it.

"No plan of operations extends with certainty beyond the first encounter with the enemy's main strength" -- Helmuth von Moltke the Elder, Prussian Chief of Staff under Bismark during the Franco Prussian war. I do not recall a similar paraphrase from Sun Wu but it has been some time since I read it.
