Wekufe The Wekufe also known as huecufe, wekufü, watuku, huecufu, huecubo, huecubu, huecuvu, huecuve, huecovoe, giiecubu, güecubo, güecugu, uecuvu, güecufu; is an important type of harmful spirit or demon in Mapuche mythology. The word wekufe comes from the Mapudungun word wekufü meaning "demon, outside being". Concept In the Mapuche language, Mapudungun, the word wekufe can be attributed to any person that tells lies or is deceptive. Since that time the idea behind wekufe has broadened to include multiple meanings, either as a subject, quality or agent depending on the speaker’s reference point or the situation that it is used in. These beings can have solid, material bodies, evanescent ghost-like bodies or be extracorporeal spirit-like entities. The missionaries who followed the Spanish conquistadors to America incorrectly interpreted the Mapuche beliefs regarding both wekufes and gualichos.

s Citadel: 100 Unique Town/City Properties By Redgre I have created this table plus, as a fantasy RPG resource. The idea is to assist in quickly mapping out an area of the adventure and be able to tell something unique about each populated location. Some of the following entries are reliant on location, others are not. I have created enough entries that you may want to use percentile dice to randomly determine each location. Due to this, I have created a separate table to assist with the randomness for your convenience. – The city is famous for it's baked goods. Pies Cakes Bread & Scones Pastries Cookies & Squares – The city has an ample supply of leather from local ranchers or ranchers from other settlements that have no other location to dump their hides. – This city had discovered an elephant's graveyard in it's backyard (or something similar). - A legendary or almost legendary sword smith had settled in this city many years ago. - This town honors a great hero, long dead, whose favorite weapon was an axe. – This city is in a slump.
Meet the man who invented the emoticon ... in 1879 In 1982, computer scientist Scott Fahlman became the first person to suggest that typing the characters ":-)" or ":-(" could be used to express a happy or sad face, and therefore display a sense of emotion. On that fateful day the now-ubiquitous emoticon was born, but that shorthand we now know and love (or loathe, depending on your point of view) actually started more than a century earlier, when communicating long distances meant using a lot of dots and dashes. In the late 19th century, just about the only way to quickly send a message over long distances was by using the telegraph. These then-innovative devices used Morse code to translate text into long and short beeps (dashes and dots), which were received and retranslated back into text on the other side. Telegraphs sped up world communications in the late 1800s — they were much faster than mailed letters, after all — but they had a few key drawbacks. They were expensive (each letter mattered) and they still took time to transmit.

House Rules: Parry,Toughness, Pace, and Charisma – Radiation Sings… You may not have noticed, but two of the many things I enjoy are math and consistency. By and large, Savage Worlds is math-lite, which is often a good thing when creating characters or running games on the fly. I appreciate and enjoy that. Savage Worlds is also very consistent, setting a standard target number and applying bonuses and penalties to players’ rolls. This keeps things from getting too complicated and further reduces the math load on our poor brains. Touche, mon ami! There is, however, one very specific section of the rules which is not consistent: Parry. First, divide your Fighting die type by 2, as normal. Then, subtract 2 instead of adding 2. Multiply by negative 1. Note that all Edges, Hindrances, or other bonuses which would have affected your Parry still affect it as expected – the only difference being that bonuses now enlarge the Parry penalty while things that lowered Parry now shrink the Parry penalty (possibly turning it into a bonus for attackers). Wait, salsa?
