I was a little vague in the write up, but "filling in the gap" here means murder, or at least I intended it so. The idea that he would counsel the penitent as a priest of Dawn Lord toward suicide as a sacrifice to Rope Woman is certainly an intriguing one. I suppose it calls into question his dedication to the two gods, whether he is more "truly" a priest of Rope Woman and his Dawn Lord priesthood only a facade. Go to Comment
I really like this. The idea of a city that only appears during certain times isn't new, but this is a great spin on it.
To make sure I'm understanding it right: is the night city, which is made of "light and magic," able to be interacted with by physical means? Could I go into the wizard tower at night and browse the lab? Or is it illusory, just a holograph of sorts?
An origin story in the classical style, done very well.
I agree and disagree with Aramax. He does sound sort of heroic - his motivation isn't that different from, say, Captain Planet - but that begs the question as to the difference between a hero and a villain. Is it intention? Motivation? Action? Costume? Goatee? Go to Comment
Can't speak for Val, but for myself, the following come to mind:
- Who's Balor? Yeah yeah, evil god, but they're a dime a dozen. What makes him stand out?
- Who's Waylan? Why is he hexed?
- Once Waylan made said armor, who used it? How? What became of it? Go to Comment
I was going to ask in what capacity a thieves' guild or the like would even use heraldry. I should think those in the underworld generally don't want to be caught and would avoid using distinct symbols for themselves. And where would they put it? I can't see a thief with a banner.
But Val and Cheka give some solid potential uses. I could also see it used in a crime lord's parlor (crime lords have parlors, yes?) where it could show his or her prestige.
At the very least, the ideas are thought out and interesting. Go to Comment
