Synths
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (Any)
Forganthus's comment on 2012-06-01 01:09 AM
This is awesome. Indentured slaves, made to order, wedged between robot and man. And the idea of talking to a branded Coca-Cola man is pretty good, too. Great flavor. You've left me to speculate on their psychology, though. (What do they do for fun?)

A couple of thoughts. If they all must be paid enough to have a fair chance of buying off their contracts, the 4yr synths must make a good amount more than the 40yr synths (10x the discretionary income).

Second, the Dolly Effect sounds like the short lifespans that somatic cell clones have. These are caused by epigenetic effects (activating/inactivated 'tags' on the genes) and telomere shortening. I can imagine both of those problems being solved in my lifetime (well, maybe not dynamic epigentic imprinting), but definitely before we have terraformed planets hundreds of years in the future. If you want something to kill your synths with, I'd go with cancer. Overactive telomerase is how cancer cells don't die of old age, and nearly everything that speeds up aging/growth can be teratogenic. There's a lot of thought that we evolved old age as a defense against cancer, actually (our own form of planned obsolescence). So yeah, cancer.

Sorry for the ramble! 5/5! Go to Comment

Awesome stuff. I'd like to hear if there are any related creatures. Stuff like this usually isn't made/evolved in isolation.

Blimp Dragon
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Other)
Forganthus's comment on 2012-06-15 03:29 PM
Hmm. I was thinking about smaller versions, actually. Little ones that float around forests, eating an apple, and then retreating to the atmosphere to slowly digest it. Or ones with long, nearly invisible tentacles that eat birds. Or maybe birds that nest only on adult blimp dragons, and clean it of parasites? Do blimp dragons get fleas?

I've seen a lot of flying jellyfish before, but armored is new. Do they land during heavy storms? Could you escape a band of orcs by riding a young one up, up, and away (after cutting its tethers)? Lastly, there must be some sort of food you can make out of these things. I just googled "horse recipes" and got ~50m hits. I'm thinking: dragon jerky. Like tough tofu, it needs seasoning, but when one of these things dies, it'd be a shame to waste it. Go to Comment

It's not worth it, Northern Dudes! Go paperless! Live in mud huts! Have one of your dudes merge with a fire-axe and go nemesis! Go to Comment

Forganthus's comment on 2012-06-12 01:29 AM
Wonderful stuff. Great names, great flavor. Leaves you wondering how their shadow fell over these chilly streets.

But why would they rape you?

Anyway, 5/5. Go to Comment
The Altar Of R'gu

Forganthus's comment on 2013-06-10 11:32 AM
Beautiful, lovecraftian, and mysterious. the only thing I didn't like was how the PCs were automatically captured. So, I'd give it a -0.5 for that.

5.5 - 0.5 = 5.0 because Cthulhu ftaghn. Go to Comment

Could be expanded (in many ways), but overall, a really good idea. Go to Comment

Forganthus's comment on 2012-05-22 04:27 AM
I'd throw in a ghost. Maybe a zombie squid. Maybe make the treasure cursed, and the pirates are begging you to take it. Maybe the captain can control the ship with his brain and makes it do all these crazy barrel rolls during the boss fight. Why should he care if he sinks it? He doesn't breathe anymore, and he can bring it back to the surface just as easily. Go to Comment

You should make this an official post. It's quality!

Are the townsfolk more advanced than their neighbors? Are they going to show up in airships and steam cannons? Go to Comment
Daughters of the Slug

Forganthus's comment on 2012-06-05 09:40 PM
Awesome!

I love the little poem. I feel like it would be best used if the PCs heard it before they knew the whole story (wtf -> oooooh.) and the images of them eating the slug are pretty great, too.

I just wish that the sisters were "up to something".

And the names are awesome (Infinite Soup! Sgoloch!)

Forganthus's comment on 2010-05-18 12:55 AM
It's like a Frankenstein's monster I can feel sorry for. Unique, but still easy to transplant into another campaign. Good flavor, too. Well, except for the yak poop, which can't taste too good.

But if the Yak-Jak is developing sentience, shouldn't it be developing opinions about the whole "following-orders-slavishly" thing? Go to Comment
