Update: Still incomplete sub at this stage but at least have a substantial part of the underlying logic worked out. Promoting this to in work status to give myself incentive to complete it. Go to Comment

Update: This work has finally shaken itself from the grasp of Mathom after 2 years. Also, a special thank you to those who've commented and suggested ideas for this sub (previously a stub). Go to Comment
Tuner Mages

Moonlake's comment on 2012-06-21 08:14 PM
Thanks for the comment, this really helps me to know whether the underlying formulation of this sub got across or not- this is in essence a sub where I'm trying to provide a particular glimpse into a particular society- the Dragon Empire as well as writing about the concept of Tuner mages. I know this is a 'game site' and most are here to grab ideas and a sub like this one that is quite specific to a given 'world' is bound to be received somewhat indifferently by most. But the bunch of votes w/o any comment at all is starting to get me a bit disconcerted over whether that is due to the issue I mentioned or there's sth wrong with the write-up. Anyway, after this comment, I feel more easy abt this aspect now. Go to Comment
Fools' gems
Items  (Materials)   (Non-Magical)
Moonlake's comment on 2012-06-05 06:47 PM
Update: Added more information and clarifications on request. I conceived this idea when thinking about adding things to the Red Herrings codex so I was basically trying to write a sub on a gem that's quite useless and its sole use in roleplaying might be to annoy and confuse players. I thought this aspect already comes through in the previous edition but may not it hasn't. I was sort of submitting in a rush so thanks for pointing out things I haven't really made clear.

The name sure sounds interesting, maybe you should throw up a stub for it if not a sub. This is what I will be doing for stuff that's been sitting in my in-work for ages and other odd pieces. Go to Comment
Fools' gems
Items  (Materials)   (Non-Magical)
Moonlake's comment on 2013-05-07 08:37 PM
A good point raised (and resolved!). When I first conceived of the idea, I guess I was thinking more along the line that the stones were changed in some way with long time exposure to high purity magic but not quite taking on magical power themselves. Go to Comment

Moonlake's comment on 2013-05-18 10:56 PM
Right, I was thinking that it is more 'permanent' magical sources that are colouring these stones as opposed to normal enchantments that could be cast by PCs/NPCs. I guess I was thinking of these magical sources like maybe a source of radiation or something i.e. if you get exposed to it long enough, you get cancer but for short periods, you are okay sort of thing.

Well, I designed it to be a quite useless thing b/c it's for the Red Herring Codex but like Dozus mentioned, if you changed it so that these gems are quicker to react, then certainly they would be good 'mood rings' as you suggest. And then maybe they would be part of a mage apprentice/someone who dabbles with new spell's standard gear in that they could set onto some kind of ring or whatever so that they will always know what types of magics they are dealing with and how strong the magic is (basically a kind of safety mechanism to prevent magical disasters).

Chilled:
I think now the "Add an idea" button replaces what was previously known as the scroll format. I believe what happens is that if someone else is to click on that button now and add a new char, sth like a new scroll will pop up after OmagaDraco's entry. Go to Comment
Nastro
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (City/ Ruin)
Moonlake's comment on 2012-06-05 03:30 AM
I think I like the "quadruplets embodying different values" (the same super-consciousness thing might go well with this, the quadruplets might be all inheriting different parts of the alien mindset of the Cursed Lady, for example.) and opposite gender switching body ideas, not so keen on the "linked, quadripartite organism" thing. The rest of the bunch, I'm so-so.

And btw, I sort of like OmegaDraco's suggestion on the reversing each other's deed thing. Like you said, if they cycle ppl b/w them, then it might get harder and harder to get a reaction from those ppl whose lives are 'constantly' thrown in ups-and-downs. But maybe in those cases, somehow the emotions fed to the twins thru this sort of ppl are more nourishing to the twins. I'm just throwing ideas around, btw.

Overall, I think I'm seeing some potential for this sub. I quite like the new twist you present on the "good twin, evil twin" myself- the emotion feeding aspect is quite nice, so don't give up easily if you feel you can take it somewhere. Go to Comment

Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Forest/ Jungle)
Moonlake's comment on 2012-05-24 03:22 AM
I agree with the author with the underlying idea of these creatures being somewhat 'mundane' but still, the write-up is excellent. I especially like the blockquote, it sets the tone for the piece really well. Go to Comment

Moonlake's comment on 2012-05-24 07:59 PM
I haven't seen the previous version but looking through the trail of comments, I think all of the points raised by Mourngrymn have now been fully covered. As the sub currently stands, it is complete, solid and overall a quality sub. Go to Comment

Like the idea of the gems having opposing effects on mortals versus infernal creatures. Solid ideas, solid write-up. Go to Comment

Like how the properties of this seas give arise to the mythical origins and the denizens. Subs based on a strong logic are my favourites. Go to Comment

Basically what Dossta already said. Also, I like Lojcrelt as a new twist to the idea of an oracle. Go to Comment

Agreed with the above, complete as a 100 word but also beyond the normal quality of a lot of the 100s. Go to Comment
