This isn't one of my 5s for which I pretty much need to be swept off my feet but for me, it is perfectly written and I wouldn't want a thing changed. So congrats on a very well written sub. I'm glad that you followed your impulse and churned this out. Go to Comment

I wasn't here yet when everything was in the forums but there's a few idea here that I agree with:
For the public in-works, not a lot of action on them yes, but apparently Muro and LS are still using them as a means of self motivaion to get things done. I used to do that as well but now I stopped. Not sure whether that alone is sufficient reason to keep this largely redundant category for anyone cos like you said, you are shifting that function to the forums, not removing it altogether. So on the whole, I'm in support of this idea of moving public in-work to the forums. This also gives you the space to put in new submission types- the no voting type submission for actual submissions, not stubs, for authors who essentially don't want the harsh critiques that have come into place as a norm at the Ctiadel.

The user-submitted idea portion I agree with in a general sense but as a non-gamer on the way to becoming a gamer, I'm not sure whether the quietness of the user-submitted idea was a manifestation of this lack of courage in posting that you attributed to the harsh critiquing or simply that in most instances, established Strolenati take the care, sometimes painstaking care, to make their sub so complete that one simply can't add anything to it via a user-submitted idea. Also, there is no culture at the Citadel to share different interpretations in a user-submitted idea, you do that in a comment, to start a discussion with the author. Go to Comment

I'm with SE on this one, I actually like its light touch on actual practices and dogmas though that was more a constraint of time rather than author intention. And like Val, I love the evolution described here. Go to Comment

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

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 09:03 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

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

Actually, Dossta mentioned the same thing for my Nine Offspring sub and I understand the rationale but unfortunately there is this ancient/modern divide in wording that for a lot of the names of the creatures in this scroll, I cannot really decipher their meanings and so I could only put in the Mandarin pinyin. I couldn't put down the English pronunciation either because I never learnt it properly even though I can write fluent English. I sort of speak fluent English but actually an accent shows up here and there b/c of this pronunciation aspect that I had just failed to master. Go to Comment

Yes, Val, except only Aramax has reported back on usage and his personal expansions/mods or Muro who took a few entries to make a scroll effectively. :P 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.
