Made up Stuff

Postby people » 2017.03.14 22:31:40

How keen are DMs on made up stuff? For instwlance, let's say someone gets a ring, the description on this ring implies there are several other rings, and this ring rules them all....

Should or could a player just go off of this vague, item description to push a plot?

!Warning! Personal opinion here, other DMs can chime in:

What your character BELIEVES to be true about an item/object can certainly be pursued. Whether that IS true is another story. Adds a little probability for failure and some fun to the mix, you know?

Does that help?

It does, thanks. I mean, I'm going to do whatever the hell I want anyway, but understanding the DM mindset helps.

Thanks Arkham!

Made up stuff is cool, but it is good to let the DMs know you made it up! Of course, I would advice some modesty, can't say write up a whole new history book about something MAJOR and believe it will be taken very seriously ;)
