If the Gavel inspired this, then I'm glad I submitted the Gavel. I like the backstory a lot, and though I agree that it's tough to fit this into a non-Kuramen setting, I don't think that's necessarily a detractor; some items, NPCs, and other elements are made to fit their setting and needn't be anywhere else. I do reflect Scras's thought that there should be another penalty or two from wielding it, perhaps something that could be a side effect of being "consecrated" with the essence of cold. One so consecrated might become eternally reliant on miserable cold to survive, or they would lose passion and ferocity forever from their minds, for example. Overall, though, I think it an intriguing piece. Go to Comment

I've not quite seen an elemental like this before. It's extremely well done, Scras, kudos. Go to Comment

A good explanation and background for a fairly simple enchanted device. Nice work, Stephie. :) Go to Comment

Good idea. Hopefully, this will become an adoption agency for abandoned subs.

For the price of a cup of coffee a day, you can help save these poor subs. Make your pledge today! Go to Comment

156* The ground seems to end suddenly in a great escarpment to the ground hundreds of meters below. You can see a waterfall some distance away, flowing down the sheer cliff face.

157* An enormous hole in the ground that has clearly been dug out by shovels. It used to be a diamond mine, but has long since been abandoned.

158* A group of caravan traders stopped by the side of the road. They nod politely as you pass, sitting in a circle and smoking a hookah.

159* A finely carved wooden bridge that goes over a small creek. One could cross the creek without it, so it's probably just for show.

160* A series of small, grass-covered "hills" surrounding the road. Hundreds of years ago, this was a primitive village with earthen structures, but they've long since eroded away.

161* A walking stick laying beside the rode. It is intricately carved, wrapped with a leather handle, and unfortunately cracked in half.

162* Traveling in winter, a family of snowmen has been built by the side of the road. One of them is headless.

163* Little gusts of wind form tiny cyclones, blowing leaves and debris into a spiral before scattering them above your head.

164* A tall totem shrine carved out of wood. It appears to represent a shark, and is decorated with some shells.

165* This desert steppe is bitter cold. Pure white snow blows across sandy dunes in an odd contrast. Go to Comment
Spear of Light

Dozus's comment on 2008-01-17 01:42 PM
I don't know why no one's voted on it, I thought it was quite good. It has a nice Paleolithic, haunted touch to it. It vaguely reminds me of Sekkitan blood diamonds in its accursedness. The extensive backstory gives it a nice flavor as well. Kudos to you.

My only question: how does one become an owner of the spear without it hating them? Does a true wielder need to be a tribesman, or is there a way to get it and not be cursed? Go to Comment

Not terribly. Usually if provoked, they'll run off, and they're not very territorial either. But if one were to rile an aerophin up enough, it could fight back and cause some nasty bites. Go to Comment

I just glanced over this comment and read the last line as "dolphin meat." Made me think what might happen if you ate a lot of aerophin. Would the consumed pantarbe build up in one's system, perhaps even to the point where they too can fly or at least float? Go to Comment

A nice, relatively simple sci-fi FTL drive explanation. I like that it scientifically (fictionally) has a certain logic to it and makes sense. For some reason, it also seems very "standard" for me, like it wouldn't stand out in a crowd of FTL drives. But I guess I'm not much of a techie. :) I like it overall, however. Go to Comment

Dozus's comment on 2008-01-02 09:34 PM
Great concept. Reminds me of ancient Greek rites: the dead had to be buried with coins over their eyes to pay the boatman on the River Styx. Without the money, they spend their afterlife as phantoms lamenting their improper burial. Sophocles' tragedy "Antigone" is based partly on the whole concept. Adding a level of physicality to it - literally having the dead rise from the grave demanding their proper rites - is an excellent addition. Go to Comment

Theoretically, yes. There is a "key" that unlocks the Gavel to reveal its true form, but that's for another sub. Go to Comment

Dozus's comment on 2007-12-30 10:56 PM
It's primary purpose is to restore Vautu to strength after his defeat, yes. Then the "Gavel" - or, in this case, Seraph Hammer - would function as an evil weapon, but it's main purpose would be to act as a focusing point for Vautu's power. It had never actually occurred to me to have a Guardian be the one that restores Vautu's power, but that would make for a fascinating turn of events. Go to Comment

Love it. Bringing magic into modernity is a huge plus for me. The whole post seems vaguely Frank Miller-ish, in a good way mind you. Big thumbs up. Go to Comment

Ditto CM's comment. Detailed geography in a game makes it far more classy and interesting, but I feel like much more ASCII could be thrown at the topic than you've provided. I'd love to hear more on the subject. :D Go to Comment
