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?

Either way, this is well done. Go to Comment
30 Dragon Flavours
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)
Dozus's comment on 2014-10-14 10:04 AM
What a great variety. Brings the idea of dragonhood into creatures beyond big scary lizards. I especially like the mammalian dragon, ice dragon, pen dragon.

So does the woolly dragon actually shoot hair out as a breath weapon? Go to Comment

Okay, I just reread it. You said the *cloth* spun from dragon wool breathes like cotton, not that the *dragon* actually breathes cotton. Understood now. Go to Comment

It's an interesting idea, but I feel like it's too vast to explore well in a 100. Go to Comment

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

Practical, straight-forward, a little intimidating to see an opponent sprout more limbs suddenly. Go to Comment

A nice moai equivalent for a fantasy setting. I wonder how/if a Zaid could be reanimated, either to continue as sentries or be questioned by those seeking ancient truths. Go to Comment

Oh, I like this one a lot. It takes an old trope and leads it down so many potential roads. Go to Comment
Balor's Embrace
Items  (Armor)   (Cursed)
Dozus's comment on 2014-08-05 11:14 PM
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
Heraldry of the Underworld
Articles  (Resource)   (Gaming - Genre)
Dozus's comment on 2014-08-05 10:57 PM
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

A solid sub that fits the 100 word limit well. It's fairly standard in terms of mechanics - big gun, long cool down, used on craft - but you cover a lot of ground in the space provided. Go to Comment

I'm not sure either, but I'm glad it did. This has some great bones for world building. I think your categories of faiths are broad enough to extend beyond Western-style religions. I think you've covered roughly all the major world religions in here.

I like the mention of syncretism in Unified Paganism. Syncretism is fascinating to me, diverse and myriad faiths adopting each other's gods and practices. I'd like to see more of that discussed in this article, but that's probably personal bias. Go to Comment
18 Gifts from Elder Gods, Outer Gods, and Cosmic Horrors

Dozus's comment on 2014-04-26 08:16 PM
The Ancient Ones are not bound by your mortal numbers. Indeed, their 18 is superior to your human 30. You could not begin to comprehend the Cosmic 30.

A fine selection presented here. I like the the "gifts" are not so often physical things but abominable curses. Go to Comment
7 More Reasons Why Not Everyone is a Magic User
Articles  (Resource)   (Gaming - Genre)
Dozus's comment on 2014-02-07 06:02 AM
Magic always has a price. All magic dealings are essentially "deals with the devil" in that they cost the user some part of themselves or something/one they hold dear.

Magic brings age. The reason why wizards always have long, flowing beards? Using magic takes years off of one's life. Powerful users rarely make it past 30.

Magic is socially unacceptable. Sorcerers are more than just feared, they're hated, even hunted. Why risk using magic when you'll wind up cut off from society? Go to Comment
