Ah a nice take on an old favorite. The Maltese Falcon if I am not mistaken. A decent version. I will need ot view the real Malachrite Falson to see if it holds up to par with the fake version. Well done Moon.
Unfortunately I read the swords description first and this now seems lacking as I learned most about this group from the history of the sword submission. Still, all around good group and ideal. I love the Templaresque mentality and historical association. Good job Moon. once again of course. Go to Comment
As I stated in the copy of submission. I like it. It takes an old story and adds a very nice fantasy detail to it. It is a refreshing item and idea and definately one that I will attempt on my gamers. If not this, then one of my own design. Once again Moon top notch. Go to Comment
I read this a while ago but this just popped back up. While the idea is interesting to bring real life to fantasy, we all have done this, I really fail to see what is special about the information here. I am voting on the concept of pulling this informaiton in, not of the entire submission itelf.
I know I could do a search on these guysmyself, but that defeats the purpose of detailing a submission on the site. It should give me enough information to want to go and do research on them because I want to learn more, not because I want to learn about what was submitted. Go to Comment
This is a parallel category to water. There needs to be food for these creatures, insects, and plants to be able to survive. Now plants will be food for insects and small animals, while the food chain increases larger animals eat the small plant eaters and so on.
However, in an environment such as a dungeon or cave where there is no light source, very unusual and sturdy plants will be the only few to survive in the dark depths. Will all of these plants be edible for a normal human or non-cave/ dungen dwelling denzien? Probably not. Care must be taken on what food source is gathered in the depths. It could be your alst meal for many reasons. Poison is most common, while it may not kill you outright it may hinder you long enough for another predator to come along and feast. Possibly the result of your death revitalizes the soil bringing nutrients for more plants, drawing more animals for the hunter.
Also to add on that, where there is a food source for one animal, another larger animal will be close by. Before stopping and marveling at the seemingly clear river flow, or the large patch of mushroom stalks standing three feet high, remember something probably uses this underground oasis as a hunting ground.

A short answer to this... I realize this is a bit unlinked but it was pre linked stage in the site version so forgive the lack of apparent linked subs. However some of this is explained in other subs which are all a part of the Hewdamian world. By reading the History of Hewdamia you get most of this, but I also realize it is outdated and needs to be linked and updated some for the new site. Go to Comment
My magical system is based off of a ew chapters in one of those books. The spell crystal idea was a continuation of that.
I actually spoke with Midkemian Press for permission to use and adapt that system. They didn't want it as it only showed up in two chapters of a side plot in a book. Something they actually forgot about. The person I corresponded with said he had to go read the book in question to remember what I was talking about.
In the basics it is similar but I have adapted it and altered it far enough to make it different by far. Part of the reason they didn't remember it. So yes you found me out. But I have permissions to use. Go to Comment
I always liked this one. I used to represent this in game by getting dice in the appropriate size and when someone found one or used one the dice would exchange hands. I would then have them keep them in their pocket or a small dice bag to give the idea of carrying them and the amount of space they take up, that while they are small, they do take up space in numbers.
Sushi is actually more of an art than a dish to eat. It was originally a way to preserve the fish or funa, a type of fish. The fish was salted and allowed to mature on a bed of vinegar rice, after which the rice was discarded. Now of course they keep the rice and add more texture by adding different spices and fruits and vegetables. Go to Comment
Ok, this seems more like a mental technique used to simple remember things. I don't see it as a specific school of magic, than a school of psycology perhaps. Interesting but I feel it lacks where it could be better. Go to Comment
