Great categorization. Ranking and organizing unfathomable monsters seems an attempt to tame them with our words, no matter how feeble that attempt may be. Go to Comment

Wow. There's so much here, and the presentation is lovely.

I'd love to see a write up on Devourers. What happens when they die? Do they go into Congeria as well?

The whole cycle - life in Atheus, to afterlife in Barathra, to magic in Congeria - is wonderful. It's like the Law of Conservation of Energy, but with souls.

Excellent work. Go to Comment

Kind of reminds me of Ghostbusters, when Gozer created the giant Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.

I feel like an experienced adventurer would know better than to read an ancient dungeon inscription aloud, but it makes sense as a trigger. Go to Comment

This is an interesting little trap (get it?). If one exits through the trap door, are they restored to their proper size, or do they remain tiny? Go to Comment

I like the sense of mythos you have with these items. They seem like something Sir Gawain might hear about on a quest, or stories that were passed down through the ages.

I'd love to see some more plothooks here, but it binds well to your Ahkti myth. Go to Comment

A very interesting progression. I like the duality here, and the idea of binding evil to do good. Excellent work. Go to Comment

The evolution of Ahkti is great, showing the changes over the eras. I agree with Val re: religious practice. The basic theology of Ahkti is here, but I wonder what rites and rituals were carried through the ages, or how they were changed over time as well. Still, it's a very fine base. Go to Comment

Sorry to hear Kingmakers go. But it is good to be so self-reflective on what happened. Go to Comment

Not only well-written and complex, but excellently presented. I can see how the system would be a turn-off for some, but it feels organic as part of the sub. Well done. Go to Comment

Two Minerals

       By: Murometz


Also called "pale-yellow witch" by alchemists, this mineral is known to possess a peculiar attribute. When found, a Yupiorite will appear the palest yellow. Rather than crystalline in structure, Yupiorite occurs in weird, smooth, ovaline shapes, as if already carved by skilled hands to serve as ring or necklace ornaments. Yupiorite somehow detects and reacts to mood. When the wearer of the gem is content, calm, and happy, the stone will remain the palest yellow. As the person gets more excited, angry, or otherwise stimulated, the mineral will darken progressively to a dark corn-yellow in color. Why the gem reacts this way to sentient mood swings, is still debated by gemologists and alchemists alike.

It is said that the Elven Halls of Vala-Aluduwy are resplendent with wall-sized mirrors of pure Yupiorite, showing plainly and ironically, the emotions of everyone present, despite the Elven love of restraint and stoicism.


"Cave-grass" or "cave-pine" is a deep forest green in color, rare and often mistaken for other minerals, though otherwise mundane. Crystals form into tiny, ultra-thin, needle-like clusters by the hundreds of thousands, creating vast dark green bursts and structures, resembling evergreen conifers, if viewed by any sort of light. Despite its ephemeral shape, Aragdulose is only second to a diamond in hardness.

Dwarves are said to keep these mineral "trees" in their homes, putting them up during festive family holidays, leaving presents beneath them, for kin to open.
