No insult to injury taken. :) Yes for those of you who do not know, I strive to have all my posts to be of the utmost quality. Although I know they all can not be like that. If you refrain from posting a comment or vote in fear of me not liking it, don't be. I thrive on comments, good or bad. I can learn more from a bad comment than I can from a good one.
Protection. In a desert environment, the strong survive. The sandgrazer's are nearly defenseless. The symbiosis that they shre with the Lemieans is simple, they each have something the other needs. The desert tribes need a source of water, which the sandgrazer provides. The sandgrazer needs protection from predators and other hazards, which the lemiean's provide.
I was thinking that the glads would naturally drop off due to weight. After a certain weight they would simply fall.
The do eat, but do not seem to eat as often as most animals would. In a desert you wil lfind a lot of animals eating certain plants that horde water to get their water intake. The sandgrazer doesn't need to do this as they horde their own water, therefore they would not be required ot eat as much as a normal desert animal. They eat yes, but not nearly as much.
They are more of a domesticated animal. They have very little fight in them and enjoy the attention and protection the Lemiean's give them. They are not like their difficult cousins, the camel. They will allow only certain people to ride them and if they are of a certain weight, to heavy and they will just stand there or sit.
While this is something I probably would never use it is very detailed and informative. I like it. It's nice to have a reasonable explaination behind said events instead of, "It's magical, thats why it works."
I like this a lot. I really want to know more about the nine angels. The fact that the Gods fear them for their real purpose and design is great. It adds a huge power struggle of the divine and makes it seem closer to home.
What is their purpose and meaning? It would be nice to know exactly what the Gods fear and what the demons are to the Angels. Is it possible to be the opposite? Angels were created for punishment perhaps as sins, etc?
Yes, once again why I never voted on this I am unsure.
This smacks of greatness as did his Of Angels submission. GO READ THAT ONE TOO!!!
I personally have a far different view on Demons that AG does, but I ejoy the detail he has gone into and the seeming passion he has put into making it as complete and detailed as possible. Go to Comment
I enjoyed this. I know this was written further back in the citadel's past and a few of the things I wished were detailed in here were not. An undead to fill my necromantic ways.
Wonder why eating salt or meat returns their personality to them. I wonder then should people pay the cabal to zombify them, so to speak, only to have their memories returned on purpose. Thereby making them relatively immortal with exceptional physical strength. Sure you may be dead but why do lichs do it? Go to Comment
I would have to say that this is an idea worth doing. It smacks of player frustration. Send them in as a task to a King, or for their redemption for a crime. If they return they are set free, but they have to bring back a special key.
This is an interesting, if not simple idea turned evil and malicious. I like it. Go to Comment
In my game setting and world system magic items are rare. They can no longer be created and so are coveted. When an item is found it is either found in single to rare quantities or large caches.
The fact that my magic iteself is different and requires no spell components but runes to cast the spells. And crystal to charge the spells. I allow the players to find pieces of the charged crystals used for spell casting. They look similar to gems and can be mistaken as such by a novice. But even if the players are not magic users they have an item that is used and coveted by someone else.
Even a spell rune is a highly sought after prize for those who don't cast magic. They can sell for a very high price in certain locations. Go to Comment
