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

Moonlake's comment on 2012-06-05 04:30 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

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

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 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

The Needles of Zhi and Wu (Acupuncture Needle)


A set of acupuncture needles ordinary in every way except that they are of a green colour as if made of jade, rumoured to be so potent in healing properties that even revival of the dead are achievable.

The Origin:

These needles are the tools of trade of Bian Que, the miracle doctor of the Era of Spring and Fall. It was rumoured that Bian Que is in fact the offspring of the Goddess of Mercy and is a divine entity himself. According to such sources, these needles have developed direct healing qualities themselves as a result of prolonged contact with Bian Que with his godly presence pervading this set of tools.  

Current whereabouts:

Unknown- Immediately following the end of the Era of Spring and Fall comes the Period of the Warring States, a time of turmoil accompanied by many refugees of wars fleeing the Dragon Empire for more peaceful outlying regions. It was speculated that Bian Que and his family might have been among such refugees.

Note: This is historical fiction since it is genuinely recorded in Chinese history that there was a miracle working doctor known as Bian Que active during what is known as the Spring and Autumn and the Warring States Period.

This is supposed to be a Wiki to the extent I thought this will be a fun submission that everyone can contribute items towards if they want to so putting it as a Wiki is just a way of throwing the sub 'open' so to speak. Since you are able to put in that two lines into the sub, it seems that the 'anyone can edit and have it appear as 1 seamless sub' part does work.

As to why this is currently in 'scroll' format, maybe it's because Muro and I used the 'add an idea' button to add our items (actually I couldn't remember what I did exactly but seeing the "user submitted ideas(2)" header I speculated what's what we did)?

Personally I actually thought the 'scroll' format suits this submission more since it's gonna be a list of items (with short descriptions) and if the format is just one big sub without line breaks it's going to be very hard on the eyes.

The Comb of Banafrit

A finely crafted comb made of a single palm-sized seashell, overlaid with specks of coloured stones. Small cracks along the teeth provide signs of frequent usage.

The Origin:

This item was commissioned by King Amenemhat and presented to his beloved Queen, Banafrit, as a birthday gift. According to folklore, Queen Banafrit has a particularly lustrous mane of hair that King Amenemhat lovingly brushes for her every morning, with this particular comb.

Current whereabouts:
Buried with Queen Banafrit in the royal tomb

The Goblet of Victory

One of the cursed items recorded in the Annuals of History and Lost Artefacts, described as being surrounded by a dark forbidding aura. In appearance, this is a goblet shaped much like a Viking helmet, with two horns protruding out from the sides. Each of these horns carries a sheath made of silver.

The Origin:

Originally the heirloom of the royal line of Hampstead, this goblet was taken as one of the spoils of war by King Knut I of Stormhenge. This is also the infamous goblet that King Knut IX choked to death on while drinking a toast of celebration over victory at the Campaign of Roxwell.

Current whereabouts:
Unknown- One tale has it that the goblet vanished mysteriously after King Knut IX’s death. Another source is certain that the goblet is now in safe-keeping in the Temple of Zorn, the All Wise and Merciful. There are also periodic rumours of it being seen in all places around the world.

I agree with previous comments on this sub being sort of inconsistent in terms of originality and length of the different god entities. However, I did get a sense of this sub being useful for portraying the different cultures even before I read the dialogue b/w Echo and the author. So my vote is on the higher end. Go to Comment
