Did you realise that John Howard happened to be the Prime Minster of Australia at around the time when you wrote this? Anyway, the lore's pretty good. Go to Comment
Hammer of the Dark
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Moonlake's comment on 2015-05-31 04:14 AM
Decent item overall but I'm finding a few logical issues with the backstory and as Dossta said, linkage between various part is a little weak. But still, I'm giving this a solid 3. Go to Comment
Olla-Taur The White Fang

Moonlake's comment on 2015-05-24 12:14 AM
I agree with Axle on the main. Still, I like the twist to this item (which originally I thought was missing cos not explicitly singled out under a separate header) but really on second thought I like the twist a lot. Go to Comment

Okay sword all-around and how this sword is to be used to invoke the Bane ability creates nice imageries. Go to Comment

Alucardian Psionovariates
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)
Moonlake's comment on 2013-05-13 10:03 PM
A fairly original concept, to interpret vampires in terms of psionics. Write up is also solid. One nitpick with it, however, is that halfway thru the "What is a Psionovariate?" section (having forgotten the title) I really wondered abt why the exclusive focus on the Alucardian Psionovariates as I was expeceting a brief description of each Psionovariate type. Maybe change the section heading or regroup content in the opening paragraph and the What is a Psionovariate section (I mean, currently it just seems a bit confusing to me because the starting paragraphs talk abt Alucardian Psionovariates specifically. Then the "What is a...?" section starts from a general overview on the Psionvariates and then w/o warning it goes back to focusing specifically on the Alucardians.) Go to Comment

Great cursed item, the prose of this sub is certainly first class. While it could do with more details like others said before, I'm personally satisfied with the current state of this sub. Go to Comment
Continuous Plot
Plots  (Mystical)   (Multi-Storyline)
Moonlake's comment on 2010-10-28 10:19 PM


Through consultation with Clergyman 2, the PCs had narrowed down the list of suspects to 3 possible parties:



1. The Order of Wisdom from the Earth which have a long rivalry with the Church over followers and conflicting theologies. It was speculated that the theft of the artifact might be an attempt to discredit the faith of the Heavenly Sight. The rumors currently flowing around town on the church angering their own deity and the artifact having been taken back as punishment seem to support this theory.



2. The "Unfaithful One" who was banished and just before his banishment was caught trying to taint the artifact with his unholy stain. While more protection had been put in around the artifact after the attempt, the "Unfaithful One" has his own unholy powers and his familiarity with the church would give him a reasonable chance of success in stealing away the artifact.



3. An overzealous patron of the Church who had expressed his desire to house the artifact in his own mansion in 'proper splendour'. It was clear that he had both the resources and the possible motivation for arranging for the artifact to be stolen.

Revisiting my favourite folder brings me here and then I see that Strolen had continued after me after 4 years' obscurity. So HOH to bring this back to the light again. Go to Comment

The underlying idea is solid and logical. The overall submission is also quite likeable as a whole. A good first post.

The Seir and the death of the Old World
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)
Moonlake's comment on 2011-02-10 11:05 PM


I read this purely as a creation myth without any knowledge of the Locastus setting and liked the way  the idea was executed, esp. the first part on the myth of the Grey Lady and the Seir ( I agree with Silveressa's point on the sci-fi terms although personally I just glossed over their actual meaning and interpreted them as being part of the description for a titanic battle with devastating impacts on the world so I didn't deduct any points for this aspect).



Overall, however, I did think this seems like a sub that has enough content to be labelled complete (and is accompanied with good quality write-up) but still lacks something  to reach its full potential. In particular, I think the sub would have benefited if you could insinuate more on the culture of the Seir within the creation myth so that they are more vivid as a people. I think that would also address Silveressa's comment on this currently doesn't quite fit into the category of Lifeforms.

62. Extra recreation activity- train your pet croc!



63. Opens up a new career path as animal trainer



64. Provides a quick way of earning some money when short on cash- surely the novelty of seeing a croc performing ‘tricks’ on command will draw some spectators



65. Be renowned for the entirely new unique “fighting with a croc at your side” style of combat

77. New way to throw off pursuits- join a travelling circus/entertainment caravan as a trainer of crocs

78. Along the same line as 77, this is an effective way to join a travelling circus/entertainment caravan which you might need to get close for some purpose (eg. murder investigation, need to get close to a particular member to retrieve sth or get info etc.)

79. Hire your croc out as a mount for a river-side cruise when you need money Go to Comment
