Yeah, there are some bad ones in here. But there are also some good ones, too, and you can always use them to come up with other ideas, which is what I think can make lists like this so great. And it costs what, a buck? It's certainly worth a buck.

But I was thinking there might be a little more setup, something that would give some atmosphere and context to a given situation. Something like: "when a certain party member orders their drink or meal, and for the first time they start to drink or eat and a few random times after that, revulsion and laughter can be heard at a table on the other side of the tavern..."

I won't mention the good ones -- and there's plenty to be had -- here for obvious reasons. But I did also feel that the wording on some of them just didn't feel right. For example, it's a little awkward to say, "Oh look, the travelling carnival is back!" ..wouldn't it be more realistic to overhear something like: "Someone looks briefly as the group sits down, saying quietly, 'Travelling carnival's back.'"

You could certainly combine these two ideas. Lies or private details that could draw the party in to a side-quest (or trap!), like "as you walk by, you hear someone speaking about a party member: "And they think he stole *that* from the Guild, too..." ("Guild" or other organization one or more of the party belong to, such as a smith's guild, a mage's group, or a thieve's guild, or something else.)


LIKED: Lots of variety, more different kinds of descriptions than I expected

DISLIKED: Missing some realism, would be nice to have a little more atmosphere.

There is some great stuff here. And there are a few that miss the mark. But overall a well done product. Have some fun with your NPC's and smarter monsters, have them hurl some insults along with the damage.

A list of short comments that may or may not be about the characters. Some are suitable just for idle convos between npcs.


LIKED: It's only a dollar...that's a penny an insult.

DISLIKED: The border is blah.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied

Very disappointing. I thought there would be some witty and colorful insults to use but got things like, "#37--Dwarf tossing anyone?? or "#56--Oh, here comes the nightly entertainment.?


LIKED: Nothing.

DISLIKED: The lack of originality and sense of humor.

QUALITY: Disappointing

VALUE: Disappointed
