Maybe it is a gender thing, but I really like this. It is just plopable into a place. It includes bits of description that I don't have to make up. My only thing is that it is a little short. Go to Comment
I remember these guys from the Waunderer's game. Do you know how hard it is to find batteries for your walkman on an alternate world? These guys hooked me up a lot of times. They will sometimes even take your debit card. They will also carry messages home for you, for a price. It is handy to know the sign, if you are a traveller. If not, they are just wiley merchants with odd stuff in their stores. Go to Comment
You really are a Romantic Fantasy fan. However, these guys and gals can be used in all sorts of games. It would be great to put the clerics and the healers (some of which are clerics) at odds with each other. No more "instant automatic healing" for you. Now you have to choose your faction, Clerics or Stars. Go to Comment
Points down for ripping of Red Caps from Ars Magica
That aside, I like this "postal organization". It serves a handy function that modern players take for granted. While it has no real place in a historical fantasy, in a general fantasy it works pretty well.
The PCs accidently start a fire and are caught by the local law enforcement. Since it was accidental, the punishment for the PCs is to fight the fire. Providing they can put it out before it burns down the town, they will not face any further punishment.
