Dozus's comment on 2008-04-02 09:30 PM
So far, it seems like an eccentric retelling of a classic vampire. I like the personal aspects, but I'm more interested in the "To be continued" part. Why should I be more interested in Cred than the average "Undead with wanderlust searching for a lost love" story? What makes him stand out? I think this has great potential, and I'd love to see what you can accomplish with him, Cloud. Go to Comment

The visual I get in my head of these guys is phenomenal: white bone wrapped in green and brown, colorful flowers bursting from eye sockets and in between ribs. Big thumbs up. Go to Comment

White Rock - A fishing village
NPCs  (Extras)   (Agricultural)
Dozus's comment on 2008-03-11 11:02 PM

An immigrant of Kition, Adeo arrived years ago as a young man seeking fortune away from his small village. His dream: become a rich merchant, sailing up and down the great rivers of the land, dealing in spices and rich fabrics.

That was twenty years ago. Adeo has since resigned himself to running a small fishing business, trapped in the heritage of his fathers. His prime fishing craft, Azure Heron, is a familiar sight to most in White Rock. Adeo still dreams that it will one day be a boat of great importance; he often tells the story of the time Heron acted as a tour boat for a foreign diplomat (it's a lovely tale, even with its heavy embellishment). Aside from Azure Heron, Adeo operates a few other small fishing boats. The Kitionan likes to pride himself as having the most skilled and professional anglers on the creeks. His crew, however, is a bit of a motley one. Adeo is known to keep them close to his heart, however, and he pays and protects well his loyal mates.

Adeo himself has the demeanor of a common boat captain: slightly gruff, always moderately irritated, but generally lenient and kind. At one time he had the body of a strong longshoreman; as he reaches closer to his 50s, he has put on some weight, though there is still muscle behind it. On shore, he can usually be found going about town, lecturing his fellow anglers or bandying with friends and acquaintances. It's no secret he's after Olyssra's heart, nor is it a secret that she has repeatedly dismissed his offerings. Adeo seems to take it in stride. Go to Comment

Hm. It appears my reading comprehension skills are lacking. I'll retcon the whole shipping thing out Adeo's plot shortly. Sorry for causing chaos, it's a bit of a hobby of mine. Go to Comment

Nature's Toll - Weathering and Decay
Articles  (Resource)   (Gaming - In General)
Dozus's comment on 2011-05-06 11:44 AM

This is an interesting compilation of material, and something I'd love to see processed and polished. Might also be interesting to note the potential for impact in a game world. For example, say a you have a time-traveling wizard or whatnot. Would any of these effects be experienced by him or outside of his spell? How might magic that ages or prevents aging react to some of the particulars of weathering and decay? Really interesting stuff here, Pariah, can't wait to see more added to it.

Extensive tables galore! A very practical guide that I'm sure will come in handy for anyone GMing with land-owning characters. While I'm sure there's similar systems like this elsewhere, it's the practical details like terrain type and taxation that earns my favor. I approve. Go to Comment

Ditto the above comments. It's a great item idea and a more than worthy stub, but it needs to be shinier for my tastes. Go to Comment

The Parched
Lifeforms  (Third Kingdom)   (Desert)
Dozus's comment on 2008-03-10 11:02 PM
It is an excellent nuance on a classic idea and I'd love to see it implemented. For some reason, I keep picturing a Parched dragon or somesuch beast: a massive, dry, desperate thing that collapsed in the deserts long ago and devours the fluids of any transgressors of its sandy domain. Makes me thirsty just thinking about it. Go to Comment

A really great idea. It kind of reminds me of my cartogramancy sub, but beat it by a few years. And this idea of the mind affecting the world at death is totally unique.

I'll have to ponder an idea or two to add to this. Go to Comment

Love it! Who doesn't like to wander the beach looking for random items? A thoroughly useful scroll.

On a side note, it appears there is some error with the suggested submissions here, as they fill up about a screen-and-a-half of text. Someone wanna fix that? Go to Comment

I actually thought of these as some offshoot evolution of chimps. But yeah, with the big feet and short stature, I can see these as halflings. Go to Comment

Wooha! An excellent and thorough setting. It's got a nice vintage flavor to it, like a great classic campaign. My favorite part was the maddening fog. Good show, sir! Go to Comment

Diseased people, (leprosy or any other such fear inducing disease) when traveling, will often times wear a cloak that entirely covers their body and ring a bell as they travel, used as a warning for any others to stay away. Could be used for a disguise or safe passage.
