Perhaps. Then again, with the exception of certain subcultures within Western Society, we absorb a large amount of UV rays anyway, just by walking around outside. Go to Comment

I was aiming for a burning feeling in the user's mouth anyway. They've got liquid sunlight sloshing around in their body. That's gotta burn on the way down. Go to Comment

I'm not entirely sure such would be possible. The petals are extremely fragile, and the distilled liquid not much better. I highly doubt either would survive launch without activating. An interesting proposition, however. Go to Comment

A good lesson to keep in mind. This goes hand in hand with Moonhunter's Not Just Rolling Dice: A Fight Scene. Read! Learn! Apply! Have fun! Go to Comment

This particular submission has re-inspired me. I must thank you for such a good sub (though the history seems like it cut off early, and could've been enhanced more). Long live steampunk and the ideas it spawns! Go to Comment

Weapons of mass destruction inevitably are horrifying. The delivery is what makes these subs as good as they are. Go to Comment

Something to consider is that powerful countries don't necessarily have the resources to field a large number of these. Depending on any number of factors, these could result in a global Cold War, or roughly the equivalent to the US after WWII, when we were the only ones with The Bomb for a while.

Heck, you only need one to be the most dangerous world power. Go to Comment

This one is all in the telling. And the telling doesn't need to be long either. Short, well crafted, and beautiful in an indescribable way. Very nicely done S. Go to Comment

Chaosmark's comment on 2008-11-20 11:08 PM
I leave that up to the GM who uses the Melders. The Inscriptions on it help merge the metal and flesh into a seamless whole, among other things, but that can include or exclude the actual sense of touch. The body enhancements in general are fully-capable replacements for the limbs lost/replaced, but there is nothing to prevent Melders from becoming more and more inhuman and unfeeling the more portions of their body are replaced if a GM so desires.

It seriously seemed like the natural extension of divine blueprints, to be honest. From your comment, I wonder if I made it clear enough that Whrrrm was the diety, and Ailm/Kecet was simply the Leader of the Melders? Or were you mentioning that Whrrrm seemed to be a name that a direct man such as a smith would bestow upon such a hypermachine? Go to Comment

I honestly tried to make Whrrrm be benevolent at first, but I just couldn't force it on what seemed to me to be amoral by nature. I had to leave it up to prospective GMs to decide where he falls along the spectrum, whether that be good, evil, or perhaps a more Axtrami-style neutral.

Re: Artificial Head - I was more worried about PCs wanting Melder laser-cannons on their arms, to be honest. Couldn't be done (or shouldn't be allowed) with normal thaumatech, but the theotech could prove all sorts of nifty in that regard, if a GM was so inclined.

Hm...Clerics of Whrrrm being gifted with theotech spell-emitters...I see an NPC coming on. Go to Comment

The head researcher killing himself reminds me of the last frame of this comic: http://community.livejournal.com/scans_daily/4611731.html

Once again, I am stunned by your mastery of prose. I really love your submissions. They're always beautiful pieces of wordcraft. Very nicely done.

Sidethought: can the creatures exist outside of the cloud bank? I would assume that certain ones couldn't, due to the nature of various realities, but others very well might. That could be an iiiiiinteresting plot hook. Woo for "The Mist". Go to Comment
