This is the oddest form of "magic" I have ever seen. It isn't magic at all, at least not in most gamer's terms. However, by treating each piece of technology as a "magic item" and their being secrecy about how these things work, you get the mystique of magic... even though it is just steam tech. Go to Comment
Okay I like this one a great deal. There are a number of nice touches. The Broom. The constants sweeping of sand. The terrain and how people adapted to it. The magic of the city, as it popped up because "other towns" didn't want them. Now the irony that the towns are minor and Sand City is major. Go to Comment
Very, very cool. I like this one a great deal. You get a sense of history. A very long history. The riot of flowers is great. It is a beautiful city without the architecture. You may get your guy license revoked, but I think you did a great job with this one. Go to Comment
Beware of towns afflicted with Time Cancer.
For every second you progress through time, an infected town goes back 48 hours. Old buildings slowly become new, then incomplete, and finally just a frame and foundation, giant old trees turn to saplings, birds hatch into eggs.
one must not linger in a chrono-cancerous village for too long, before you know it you'll be a fetus. Tme cancer in unstoppable, no cure or treatment is knwn, it eats through the past until the inhabitants of a village turn into primordial protein ooze
