Simple, little flair, and a definite "Here's an idea to give to the annoying player who is greedy!" award.



Cheka had a good thought for a plot hook. How about one of the player character's picks the pocket of the owner of this unlucky gem thinking he is himself very lucky to have acquired it.



Or perhaps the players have been hired to frequent the locked stash of a local and grab a few of his belongings, one of which is the gem that they just can not get rid of. This could have not only the original owner after them but the one who hired them could also be after them for' not giving up the whole treasure so to speak.

I think you need to work on your to honest nature AG! If you are afraid to hurt someones feelings how will you be able to tell anyone how you feel about, well anything?

But I agree, I have noticed a trend of voting and HoHing certain people because they are active. I just wanted everyone to be aware that just because you may not submit material up doesn;t mean you can't contribute. Help us out so you can continue to enjoy the site. Go to Comment

I have said in the past, I would rather you tell me my submission was a 1 then read it, not like it, then not tell me to fix it.

I like comments regardless if they are good or bad. If it isn't any good and I don't know about it I can't fix it. Tell me it stinks... that will make me fix it much faster. Go to Comment

Mike made a very good point.

Thou shalt not comment on a man's work before thou hast walked a mile in his shoes

I take this to mean one thing. Do not look at a post as being bad, or crap, or junk or a waste of time. . . unless you have submitted something yourself. I for one love comments both good and bad, but seeing someone who has never posted before and just comments and tells someone their submission is crap is off to me.

If someone puts forth the time to submit and comment then they know the fear of rejection. But someone who never submits anything and comments and bashes someone for their lack luster skill.

I don't know i guess I am a little harsh today because I'm getting bad news after bad news. Go to Comment

Updated with some new content and so the newer people visiting strolens may see this to get an understanding of what we look for in an active member. Now granted I am no admin by any means, but it is about respecting everyone here and their work.

Kudos. Go to Comment

Doesn't matter is the comments are negative as long as they are constructive.

That is the largest problem we have is a majority of people are afraid to comment badly and instead will refuse to comment or say something they don't feel for fear of it upsetting someone. Don't. We are all capable of understanding. or we should be able to. Go to Comment

That is perfectly logical reasoning. And a comment in a PM is still a comment. All I was originally saying in this sub was that give the respect to everyone that you expect yourself. If you want people to comment on your subs then comment in return. There really isn;t a whole lot that can be said about it. If people prefer to comment via PM, which some members have done with me, which is fine. Go to Comment

All good points you have brought up slart and as Mike said it is an age old debate to that answer as well. There are a few submissions up regarding this and I will toot my own horn so to speak to help answer this question for you. I submitted an article so to speak years ago about what I used my basis off of and it started many ideas from it. Ill link it here for your ease of searching.

Hope this helps. Go to Comment

Update: Seeing as to the recent events that have caused me to remove many of my subs from the site to a more hidden and friendlier environment for me to work on them, I have come across an idea to help fulfill this original article. I have decided to update this article and put it back up for all to see and hope against hope that things turn around to where they used to be. Go to Comment

I was hoping for a tad more from this when I first saw the title, and seeing that I tend to not enjoy most 30 subs I began reading this with trepidation. However, with a few events happening lately this sort of hit home so I read it regardless and find it rather helpful. Someone should have put this up long ago.



I applaud you Cheka for writing this, as only a few of the original hard core Strolenties will appreciate this for what it really is. Kudos.
