A secret meeting place for rebels, dissenters and members of persecuted groups, this is quite a busy and exotic place: you can meet the last member of the Sankha, who were hunted to extinction, various weird pairings of species, rogue psions and underground artists, escaped political prisoners and members of strange religions.
Where is this place, you ask? Why, right in the belly of Apollo Prime station, above Earth, third planet of Sol, the busiest place in space. Hidden fortunately by a bureaucratic error and a faulty calculation from feet to meters, none would suspect the Candle's existence.
Its secrecy is maintained by Abu, the founder - an exceedingly cunning telepath. He will scan all newcomers, and subtly implant a suggestion in them: if they betray the sanctuary, they will forget any and all details about it.
It's a decent sub, though talking skulls and annoying ones to boot are no novelty, especially since Morte (Planescape: Torment)
Hence, I recommend checking out Morte.
Also, as a doctor, I don't really think the name is too good. It could use one that's easier to yell, especially in combination with "shut up!", and a funny one at that.
I like their creation story a lot - they're a by-product, accidental and misguided, yet to find a place in the world.
Where I could see improvement is the following:
> Their appearance is archetypally demonic, yet uniform. I'd expect more variety and perchance a slightly more innovative take wouldn't be bad.
> I'd like to know more about their culture.
> Just curious - why the mistyped Valkyries, Shadows, Dragons (Adraghan = a dragon, yes?), Titans, Fey, Trees, etc.?
Thank you Cheka for summing up so many important aspects so concisely.
I just read this, and will read it a few times more.
As for the gift sub - methinks it may be something taking place in another player's setting, a story involving another's submitted NPC, or ...?
Echo approves. They're all useful, some of them quite original too. I especially like 26 - the Fear Scabbard, and 9 - the Tattletale Scabbard.
Still, it could use a little work-over with a thesaurus and a look at the grammar (>it's< means >it is<, >its< indicates possession by it; etc.
