The Blackwings
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)
Dozus's comment on 2014-02-07 10:18 AM
The caste system is well thought out. Like you describe, they do seem a very cold-hearted race.

You mentioned it's common for Blackwings to keep slaves. Do they enslave fellow Blackwings, or other races, or both? Go to Comment
Trash Golem
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (Any)
Dozus's comment on 2014-02-06 05:53 AM
I think this is great. Making golems out of non-standard stuff isn't brand new, but this take on it has a good story, good mechanics, and is just a good idea over all. Great first sub, Pete. Go to Comment
Trash Golem
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (Any)
Dozus's comment on 2014-02-05 03:05 PM
Are the limits on the length of time this spell is active? Say in a city in the midst of a barbarian sacking, a wizard enchants a bunch of random junk of his as trash golem seeds. Would adventurers rediscovering the city a century or more later find roving trash golems guarding the place?

What about size? Could a golem seed that gets thrown into a junk yard assemble all debris around it into a giant trash golem? Given their regeneration ability, such a golem would be extremely difficult to bring down.

I can see a sort of street wizard-thief using this spell to stalk prey in the night, having trash golems jump out from alleyways and mug passerby. Go to Comment

Very well researched article. One can imagine such a thing might exist, terrifying though that fact may be.

The CogNet
Locations  (TransWorld)   (CyberSpace)
Dozus's comment on 2014-02-06 04:50 AM
This is a logical, if daunting progression from our Information Age into the Cosmic Age. I like the sort of mystery of the unformatted beyond and the hidden presence of arcanotech.

Looking over the themes, it's interesting that only Necessity makes the CogNet really, well, necessary. The rest are manipulation of human urges and mass media. Not unlike the Internet of today, I suppose.

You mention that the poor Netizens lack the luxury of rich real goods, enjoying only synthetic stuff. I wonder what the demographics of the CogNet are; or, more specifically, how many people of the Cosmic Age have access? The most recent stat I have on modern day Internet access is only about 34% world wide; does the ubiquity of the CogNet mean a larger percentage of the population are on the Net, or is it still a limited number who are in very deep?

One typo I noticed in the second full paragraph of Behind the Curtains: "Humans who enter the CogNet enter do so by..."

All in all, an very interesting take on the future of the Web, and the addition of other Cosmic Era lore makes it quite unique. Go to Comment

I find the idea of magnetic weaponry appealing, particularly in the face of limited resources as you suggest. This is a nice handling of the concept. Go to Comment

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

Barathra
Locations  (World)   (Any)
Dozus's comment on 2014-02-06 08:05 AM
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

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

Dozus's comment on 2014-01-22 10:32 AM
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

Dozus's comment on 2014-01-22 10:28 AM
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
