A fine idea. Reading this makes me think about how I actually vote on subs. I think writing subs like this is a challenge for some (read: me), as some (I) tend to springboard from "fluff" to "stuff". A worthy challenge.

Like Robot Wars, but with fantasy sentients. It's a good thing.

This seems more like a stub than a sub, not because of its length but its genericalness. Nothing really sets it apart from any other acropolis.

The Invisible Trebuchet
Plots  (Crisis)   (Side-Quest)
Dozus's comment on 2012-01-10 02:23 PM

I like the plot. I'm picturing the Usurper as a Dick Dastardly, wringing gloved hands as boulders seem to appear from nowhere in the town.

How does one aim an invisible trebuchet?

Welcome to the Citadel, Brutus! Thanks for your subs.

Just a heads up about our little operation. There's a few things we always want to see in subs: playability, detailed descriptions, reasonable backstories, good grammar. Punctuation and grammar is a *must* with us. I suggest running your sub through a spellchecker before you post it (there's one on the submission page, if you don't feel like using your word processor). I'd like to talk to you about your content, but honestly I'm afraid I can't read it due to lack of punctuation and spelling :) Start by running that sucker through a spellchecker, and we'll go from there.

A great example of a a plot can be found in Manfred's "To Die For Love." Perhaps that will give you a good idea on how a plot sub should look.

Again, welcome to the Citadel! Hope to see more from you, and to comment on your completed sub soon! Go to Comment
Random Castle History Tables

Great idea. It reminds me of reading randomly generated history in Dwarf Fortress. A really easy way to generate the background for a place. Go to Comment

30 Gods of Tirexia
Systems  (Divine/ Spirit)   (General)
Dozus's comment on 2014-10-14 09:28 AM
In like with what Echo and Val said, in a lot of ways this is a slightly more elaborate divine template for a pantheon rather than a fully fleshed out one. But as is, I find it both useful and creative. Go to Comment
Gideon's Mercy

Dozus's comment on 2012-01-30 08:19 AM

The healing/merciful weapon has been done before, but this is a lovely twist on it that brings freshness to the idea.

Steampunk mace! (Well, more complicated than that, but that's the image I get) I love it! Imaginative, well-written, well explained, great imagery. Overall an excellent job. Go to Comment

Carapace Armor
Items  (Armor)   (Combat)
Dozus's comment on 2012-11-01 03:36 PM
I think I expected this to be made from an actual carapace. From reading the sub, I gather it's supposed to be nonmechanized armor in an era of mechanized armors? That makes it kind of neat, and the details work well. Go to Comment

Very nicely done, a well-earned HoH.

On an unrelated note, the "Fate smiles at us; so smile back at fate" Mantra of the Mortuelians remind me of the hackers' motto of "For the lulz". Go to Comment

Still working out the details here, but I wanted to get what I had out there for your perusal. Suggestions on spells, equipment, noted notables, and RP hooks are all welcome.
