I'm absolutely captivated by this submission. I'm not sure exactly why, but it seems like the perfect combination of elements. Very nicely done.

You beat me to this idea, and man am I glad you did! I was considering something roughly akin to this as a sidenote submission to enhance my own quest idea, but your implementation is much more detailed and thought out than my own. Kudos! Go to Comment
Augment Trees
Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Any)
Chaosmark's comment on 2010-08-26 10:41 PM
This is quite eye-catching. I love the idea of the quickly shifting thorns protecting inherently magical stones that possess nifty properties. The randomness of the stone effects is almost detracting from the idea, up until you remember that this tree only grows and thrives in areas contaminated with chaotic magic.

One thing I might like to see is the life-cycle of the trees. Do normal trees start slowly mutating into Augment Trees, or do seeds from normal and Augment Trees fall to the earth and soak up the contamination themselves, sprouting and growing as Augments instead of normal trees? Go to Comment

Update: Added the thaumatech and steampunk freetexts. At first I didn't think they really applied, but this is a location suitable for both. Go to Comment

How in the world did I miss this? An excellent fragment of dystopia to include in a setting.

Chaosmark's comment on 2010-05-27 10:38 PM
Ahoy, Dresden Files! Seriously, this one is played to great effect in the aforementioned book series. Any prospective GM who uses this needs to at least read a handful of those books to get a feel for how this can truly screw up a mage's world. Go to Comment
Hill Turtles
Lifeforms  (Third Kingdom)   (Plains)
Chaosmark's comment on 2010-05-30 03:30 PM
I must echo the other comments here. This is truly a unique and original idea. Earth elementals being solid, slow moving turtles of gigantic proportions Just Plain Works. It has a rightness to it that I'm sure every player would understand it intuitively, even if they don't fully comprehend everything about it.

Very nicely done Scras. Go to Comment

I laughed more than once while reading this, and smiled many more times. I need to add this to my ToDo list.

Chaosmark's comment on 2010-05-30 07:23 PM
I'm left shocked and awed. This is apocalypse the likes of which I've never seen or heard of. The style it was written in is cold and mechanical, just recording history. The writer is obviously numb, and that just adds to the horror of such destruction.

A solid idea, and one that shines from excellent execution. Go to Comment
Claws of the Emperor
Plots  (Event)   (Multi-Storyline)
Chaosmark's comment on 2011-12-20 11:14 AM
It might have worked better to have done some foreshadowing that shows the reliability of the oracles and necromancers. The PCs likely didn't take them seriously because they just didn't know of their reputation.

In the real world, that sort of thing happens all the time; in the game world, we probably need to give our PCs much greater hints. Go to Comment

As usual, an AG plot that twists my brain in strange fashions. Well done.

The story gave it a bit extra flair beyond the interesting material. Not sure why it's got such a huge hype, but that's why we each have our own votes, ne?

You might find it better to make this a scroll and add scroll entries if you're going to be continually adding new material. That was the entire reason for scroll submissions, and it'll help the rest of us locate the new material. If you're not wanting others to add to it, you can set it to be so when you make it a scroll.

The crunch was decent. The style was good. But the flavor...beyond words.

Cloak of Dusk
Items  (Clothes)   (Magical)
Chaosmark's comment on 2009-02-15 03:48 PM
{Siren no Orakio} 3:26 pm: I have decided that I hate the word 'overpowered'
{Siren no Orakio} 3:27 pm: It's firmly rooted in the 'you're a level 3 peasant with no ability to change the world!' mentality
{Chaosmark} 3:29 pm: Very true.
{Chaosmark} 3:29 pm: Epic people sometimes need epic equipment.
{...}
{Chaosmark} 3:31 pm: Jedi are a good example of "overpowered equipment isn't"
{Chaosmark} 3:32 pm: A laser sword that can cut through almost anything, and kills in a single attack.
{Siren no Orakio} 3:32 pm: Heh.
{Chaosmark} 3:32 pm: Extremely overpowered. However, GM Lucas was smart in controlling it.
{Siren no Orakio} 3:33 pm: Well, the other thing is this:
{...}
{Siren no Orakio} 3:33 pm: When I am RPing or GMing, my feeling is that it's a story in which the PCs are supposed to be heros
{Siren no Orakio} 3:33 pm: They should be capable of heroic things
{Chaosmark} 3:34 pm: Of course. Why play if you're just going to be a peasant farming a field?
{Chaosmark} 3:35 pm: We want extraordinary.
{Chaosmark} 3:36 pm: Re: Overpowered - I think the word itself has valid applications, but most of the time ends up just being used as an excuse for GMs to not have to be creative in their GMing.
{Siren no Orakio} 3:36 pm: Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader had Light Sabers and the Force. King Arthur had Excalibur /and/ its sheath. Thor had Mjollnir. Kera gets.. the cloak of death
{Siren no Orakio} 3:38 pm: . A weapon which, technically, does 0 HP of damage.
-------

Excalibur was overpowered. Lightsabers are overpowered. Overpowered compared to what? The average, common weapons wielded by average, common people. A hero needs heroic equipment. The Cloak of Dusk is no different. When you think about it, how hard is it to actually wrap someone up completely in a cloak? Normally you can only do it when they're sleeping or drugged. Newsflash: you can get the same effect with a knife. Overpowered? Not hardly. Besides, this has the lore to back up it's power.

Nicely done Siren. Go to Comment
