Standard thaumatech gear. This needs to go into the Tools of the Trade freetext. I'm also fairly sure there's a scroll or codex for the same sort of thing, but I can't find it for the life of me. I'm sure Moon will know exactly where, and most likely have the number memorized for ease of insertion. Go to Comment
It can be the manifestation of three things, only one of which is bad.
Post whoring, for pure xp and sub recognition, is the bad, and should be discouraged with brutal mockery. However, it could also be simply a major enthusiasm for the flow of ideas, as well as the simply outpouring of ideas in an attempt to stimulate more, both amongst the author and the commenters. As I said, only the first is bad. The second two are commendable. Go to Comment
I like it. The creep factor could probably be turned up a bit more for extra effect when actually used. I also like the explicit inclusion of, "These are not undead, they merely have similarities." Go to Comment
Does it pass through like a current of electricity, or does an object have to be in direct contact with it? (i.e. does it need to be moved through magic, or can you just use a pair of gloves/tongs?) Go to Comment
Hm. An interesting piece of scenery to place here and there in your sessions, perhaps as a reminder to the PCs that there are always those greater than they. Sidenote: I love the imagery evoked by the fact that he can dent Aphex. That sort of interweaving (verisimilitude?) is what makes worlds like yours so great. Nice work. Go to Comment
Is there a constant tide of pilgrims who spend an entire day of their year performing this act of worship, or do all the worshipers come at once and carve their rune in a designated 'box' marked out by the priesthood? Go to Comment
Likewise, my steampunk ideas (what few I've done) have been inspired by your setting and work. It's an infinite loop! Arrrgh!
Edit: The thought occurs to me that a steampunk/thaumatech quest would be interesting, but not get anywhere near the level of response that most quests get (and even those can be all across the board with the number of submissions). Go to Comment
I'm still not sure what to think of these guys. They remind me a lot of the Zerg, but they definitely aren't. They're interesting definitely, but I'm just not sure if I can take too much of a stance on them. Go to Comment
Remember, there's no point in going to all the effort of raising the undead if they aren't going to be lethal foot-soldiers. You want to make them more like the Terminator than brain-eaters. These augmentations are perfect for spicing up the undead your players face. It'll keep them on their toes. Go to Comment
The main thing with that is that people in-game probably won't make that distinction. To them, growth is growth, whether it's organic or mechanical in nature. Heck, how often do we talk about the "growth" of other non-organic things, like viruses or systems? Why should the distinction stop at something that was once living, but isn't anymore? Go to Comment
Depends on how much water we're talking about. One of the small $.50 pistols? You'd get the normal effect. A Super-Soaker XXL MegaStrength UltraWet? You're going to create a superbeing for a very short period of time. Go to Comment
