I liked this idea when you first presented it, and I love the presentation here. What if a wizard tried to befriend it and turn it into his familiar? Go to Comment

Creative and innovative. I think these could be a useful addition to any generic fantasy world. Go to Comment

It took me a little bit to get used to the large blocks of text, but the content of this is substantial. I like it quite a bit. Go to Comment
The Knights of The Lady
Society/ Organizations  (Combative)   (Country/ State)
Chaosmark's comment on 2008-10-07 10:50 AM
I honestly find this to be a good example of a non-traditional order. After all, not all fantasy strives to be a direct replication of the Middle Ages, and this group gives some explanation and backstory to an Order that likes women, which I'm sure a number of GMs would like to include, but simply can't decide how such an order would come to exist.

Alamras' Laboratory
Locations  (Fortification)   (Any)
Chaosmark's comment on 2008-10-06 02:29 PM
As it stands, I agree with MJS: it's a bit too short. This is more of a sidenote that you'd toss into the histories your players are rummaging through. Some encounters, a basic layout, all that good stuff would immensely improve this. The basic concept is quite good however; I just want to see more out of it. I'll refrain from voting until it has been retooled and expanded a bit. Go to Comment
The Book of Remembrances
Items  (Books and Scrolls)   (Cursed)
Chaosmark's comment on 2008-10-06 02:21 PM
I think the way to solve val's problem would be to make it either a cursededed evil artifact, or perhaps an artifact with the blessing of the Knowledge god, whomever that might be, who negotiates with the other deities to 'lease' the souls of the faithful for a short time (in the "grand timescale"). Said souls very well might know of their death, and the pious ones would consider it their final act of service before their final reward (assuming they are informed of the terms of their stay within the book), whereas the evil ones might be scheming and plotting within the book to try and remain immortal (the means of which would be as varied as you like).

An interesting item such as this always opens up new avenues of thought and idea. Nice work sveri! Go to Comment

I think you captured just about everything needed within this post. Very nicely done. Go to Comment
Away From Table Chart
Plots  (Travel)   (Side-Quest)
Chaosmark's comment on 2008-10-10 08:27 PM
A bit too contemporary for a "What is the character doing?" chart. Light and funny is perfectly fine in my view, but some of those simply didn't have a feel of anything but modern filler. Go to Comment
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (Any)
Chaosmark's comment on 2009-01-24 01:59 PM
angryscot hit it right on the head. I couldn't shake the feeling of Brave New World the entire time I read this sub. An interesting concept, and always something that gets brought up in scifi, but I very highly doubt I'll ever use it. Go to Comment
Blimp Dragon
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Other)
Chaosmark's comment on 2010-05-30 10:25 PM
Epic. Biology.

I don't care so much about the physics of it. This is just so out there and so awesome that now I want to see more worlds break away from the norm and have truly strange creatures.

Flying jellyfish. What a concept. Go to Comment
Monastic Religious Order Ranks and Titles
Systems  (Societal/ Cultural)   (General)
Chaosmark's comment on 2008-12-15 02:48 PM
Instead of focusing on the actual titles themselves, and the fact that they're Catholic in nature, perhaps we should be looking at the fact that specific designations were/are needed for those stations within monastic orders, and create parallel titles/ranks for our own monastic orders?

Even though this is decently done, however, I must disagree with other commenters as to how useful it is. Economics states that the consumer pays for value added: what value was added here? Simply organizing such ranks together into a list with categories isn't good enough to be worthy of a write-up, in my opinion. Is there honestly nothing we can add to this to make it more than just a list of rankings? Go to Comment

This is a concise, well thought out and well written article covering a topic that does raise some questions when considered. Nicely done. Go to Comment

Izal Apt, The Puritan

Chaosmark's comment on 2008-10-27 09:56 PM
This is amazing. I cannot think of a single submission that matches this one. The depth and scope of this piece, to say nothing of the amazing prose, is astounding. Kudos for you, you most definitely deserve the First-Place this piece was awarded.

Regarding inspiration and the feel of the character, I had gotten a Voldemort vibe near the end, but mostly the name that came to mind was "Hitler". Go to Comment
The Book That Thinks Foul Thoughts
Items  (Books and Scrolls)   (Campaign Defining)
Chaosmark's comment on 2008-10-07 05:24 PM
I find this book's actions to be quite in line with most supremacists, who aren't above harming even their own for "the greater good." I do think just copying the spells out of nearby spellbooks would be enough for the book, though eating magical items of any sort would certainly be allowable within the supremacist motif.

Misocaine Utility System
Locations  (Ruins)   (Underground)
Chaosmark's comment on 2012-12-02 11:24 PM
Excellent! This is simple, to the point, and perfect for its purpose. It can be dropped in just about any location, even in a more fantasy-oriented campaign (in which case the PCs are probably going to be a bit confused by the pipes if they haven't hit steamtech yet, but the players will recognize maintenance tunnels...probably). I love the simple horror of the unknown here. It's so simple and uncomplicated, yet it reeks of terror. Go to Comment
Helen of Grond
NPCs  (Major)   (Political)
Chaosmark's comment on 2009-04-11 02:11 PM
I'm impressed with this one. It steps far outside the boundaries of stereotype, while at the same time retaining the entire feel of a fantasy princess. Well, one with tusks anyway. This is an entirely plausible character and story for any world where orcs are more than just brutish monsters. Go to Comment
