Like Gossamer, I quite like the sword tombstones as well. Overall, a solid piece. Go to Comment
The Whitebone Tomes

Moonlake's comment on 2013-07-12 06:56 PM
I'm normally not a fan of infernal themed subs, but this one is a nice surprise. I like how the boons and curses linked to each of the books is relatively 'minor' in a sense.

btw, you can and probably should link back to your own scroll on Ngama Ngama in 30 Devils by using the syntax {sub_id#comment_id|Ngama Ngama} where you replace { with [. The sub_id#comment_id can be found when you go back to the 30 Devils sub and then click on the eye icon on your scroll on Ngama Ngama. Not sure whether you know abt the syntax or not so might as well write it down here. Go to Comment
Quedoths Blade

Moonlake's comment on 2013-07-03 06:44 PM
Still a solid piece however this one has some typos. For example, in the first section, 3rd paragraph, 'through' has become 'though'. In the last plot, 'they' is typed as "then". Also, in the title, the apostrophe has been eaten up? Go to Comment

Moonlake's comment on 2013-07-03 08:03 PM
I see, I thought the apostrophe might have been eaten rather than being intentional. I remember in migration to version 3, all apostrophes in my subs had been eaten and I had to manually add them back in.
And yeah, with items, it's sometimes just so natural to name them The..... Go to Comment

A neat item, whether viewed seriously or as a silly item (only banging the face part was bordering on silly). Go to Comment

Thanks for the typo alert. I might add more from further research after I finish the Wiki page (there's some 130+ entries in total). I was just trying to clear one of these scrolls in my Chinese Mythical Lifeform Codex so I don't have that many released incomplete subs in addition to my pile of in-work subs. Go to Comment

On the fox, I actually already expanded the Lore section a little based on my own knowledge (relative to the Wiki page, that is). As for the extra tails, I think another version has it that each extra tail represents an extra live rather than being a storage device of magical energies. I've never come across references on what exactly triggers the form shift but my interpretation is that this is an ability they develop so that they can more easily approach human men so that they could suck their life forces.

Feel free to do your own adaptations. The original purpose of this compilation was precisely to act as inspiration/resources after all. The same idea did cross my mind on a few but then I was focused on actually finishing the compilation plus as per usual, I've got myself split between a dozen different writing projects.

Actually, at one pt I did consider omitting the Special Properties and Lore section headings as well just like the Translation Quirk. But b/c I didn't label them as optional, I sort of opted for the current approach for consistency of format. But then I think you are right, omitting them wouldn't confuse anyone so I might as well get rid of empty headings. Go to Comment

Calypso of Caspia
NPCs  (Mythic/ Historical)   (Mystical)
Moonlake's comment on 2013-06-26 07:18 PM
This is a piece that I instinctively like as a Legend/Biography of Calypso the Great Mage and it's of a solid quality. However, I personally feel that it suffers a little from missing content/logic as it currently stands. For example, how did Cal make the apprentice collapse with a mere wave of his hands? The reason could be tied up with what's written up in the summary (i..e in your setting, belief grants power) but then it's really a bit vague. Also, in the Becoming Real section, I feel that the write-up on why the East City became popular with wizards after it became a hub of innovation departed a little from practicals in my opinion. In particular, you only outlined that the entry price is relatively 'cheap' in the wizards' eyes and the fact that teaching Cal things has become some sort of 'conspicuous consumption' thing with the wizards but surely, a more practical reason (and I feel more key reason) for them is that it has become a hub of knowledge so that visiting the East City would increase their own magical expertise.

A high quality Weaver sub from the Leader of the Guild himself! Masterfully formatted and with great pics that add to the piece (although I did not specifically hand out bonus marks for them) despite not original work by the author. Also, as a Chinese and the author of the Fengshui sub, I think this piece captures the Chinese vibe very well at the start with the Legend on Quian Kun and the descriptions on the lifecycles of each beast.

However, I agree with Gossamer that it is easy to get lost with this sub b/c the system is such an integral part of the creatures. Despite having much greater familiarity with the system, I also had one fleeting moment of feeling lost with the sub even though I'm not technically lost and I keep getting the urge to scroll up to the cycle diagram to check the dominant, submissive and diminishing elements for each creature (Granted, I've been asked specifically to check logic etc. but if it wasn't the case i.e. if this was just released w/o my input, I feel that I would still get the same urge somehow) and I too found that a bit distracting.
