The Histories of the Spiked Sea
Locations  (Regional)   (Water)
Dozus's comment on 2014-03-02 04:10 PM
This is good stuff. By reading the multiple histories, you really get a feel for the different peoples and attitudes in the Spiked Sea. The tale of Saulke stands out to me in particular. The one thing I'd like to know more re: the Favorim is the reason for the specific measurements. They remind me the Thirty-two Excellent Signs, the external characteristics that are supposed to mark a Buddha. Those each had a specific purpose; e.g., His bodily hair grows upwards, from his having engaged in constructive practices and having inspired others to do the same. I wonder if there's a specific reason for Favorims to have such perfect measurements, or is Saulke just extraordinarily picky?

The formatting does leave something to be desired, and some of the grammar is stream-of-consciousness sloppy. But the meat is here, and it is succulent. Go to Comment

I actually kept picturing one of the first scenes of Firefly, where the crew is salvaging cargo from a derelict, but imagining what would happen if they salvaged from a far older and more alien ship. But I can see this working well in the Star Wars universe, too, like salvaging Sith artifacts from Korriban. Go to Comment

Reminiscent of a reverse Cthulu, if that's a thing. An interesting concept, though I'd like to see some more detail. What are some hooks for in-game use? Who are these Huska folk? Etc. Go to Comment

I would pay good money to watch Dino-Knights.

As with your other Cosmic Era material, this is some great color stuff that demonstrates what society has come to in the period. Go to Comment

I would've said it before, but I just noticed: did you custom make those bills pictured at the bottom? Extra kudos for that gem. Go to Comment

Very clever! An actually practical methodology for the burial and retrieval of pirate treasure. It's simple, straightforward, and quite employable in any setting.

Well done, sir. Hope to see more like this from you. Go to Comment

You should really make a "Gyde to ye Lands Surrounding Abodroc, and Oyer Regions" with all this pseudo-knowledge stuff.

What's a "crawling mountain"? Is it just a phrase that's above my head, or something different? Go to Comment

Interesting. I think the story really illustrates your inspiration: the Grand Hero who comes charging in against the Undead Lord, waving a sword and shouting the names of his gods. I like that aspect, the corruption of (blindly naive) good.

As for its actual magic effects, it seems almost mundane from a necromancy standpoint. But that doesn't bother me much, as I like the story a lot. Khalran seems a very practical sort of lich, which I can appreciate. Go to Comment

Dozus's comment on 2012-12-10 10:45 PM
Kindred spirits, to a degree. Followers of the Way of Divine Wealth might see the usury Priests of Mammon practice as stifling commerce through excessive debts, though someone would praise the practice. They would also probably suggest charging a fee for usage of the churches, or at least setting up a shop or two within. Go to Comment

A neat challenge to your high-ranking PCs. It can be hard to get a devastating personage with an interesting story and setting, but you've given it a fair go. Go to Comment

This has a nice, classic feel to it. I can envision this as a nice, low-mid level quest for a party. The detail you provide are very nice, but loose enough that it could be adapted for any setting (e.g., instead of a Taoist temple, it's an elven shrine that some sylvan elf clan is attacking). For a random-word sub, you've put together something very clean and usable. Go to Comment

Well-written, this reminds me of some dark comic book character for some reason. As SE said, she is very powerful for a teenager, but the writing's enough to keep me interested. Go to Comment

Clever. It does remind one of some of those 19th and early 20th century artistic societies. But with more corpses. Go to Comment

Very nice! It does boggle the mind, but you explain it well enough to encourage usage.

Bonus points to someone who effectively creates a non-euclidian monster for a campaign. Go to Comment

Dozus's comment on 2012-11-28 05:43 AM
The 1973 classic "Blacula" was on the other night. The title reminds, naturally, of that film.

They sound almost comical in appearance to me, begging for blood with their sideways, toothy smiles. Basically a humanoid hagfish vampire. I don't think anyone's made quite that combination before, so kudos to you. Go to Comment
