I had reservations about this prior to reading it, but was surprised to enjoy it. I like it. As Mystic states it is similar in vein to other stories of malicious seas in many stories, books, etc but I don't see a reason why its not interesting. I wish it was longer but I also realize it doesn't need to be longer. It is the perfect size for what it is, a myth or story overheard in a seaside tavern right before the players get shanked on a ship by being shanghaied or a simple trip across the sea. Go to Comment

I agree with Muro on the similarities of the character in Se7en. The story itself intrigued me more than it probably should have I think but I still enjoy the character as a villain.

On a side note, can someone translate what axle said? I went back and read the sub three times thinking I missed something. Go to Comment

Adding in more of his background and history of his fall into criminal behavior would help. Especially now that apparently he is wealthy which I didn't gather from reading it.

Fair enough, and having a one shot villain to throw at the players is required of having an in depth back story. However as stated by caesar himself, Smith was granted with a huge inheritance that made it possible for his crime spree to begin. I am curious as to why this big inheritance was given and if it was the push that made him a criminal or was he a murderer long before he became rich?

I get the mystery behind not knowing is one for an outside viewer but for one to run someone such as him I personally like to know why he became the way he is, his motivation for doing it, etc. Me I just like to know everything. Go to Comment

Ok I see this and read it and his crimes are pretty brutal. I don't see the Judges family on there, or if I did I didn't recognize the names.

One other thing I don't see is a catalyst or motive. These types of crimes don't just happen. Something leads up to it or causes it, hence my desire for the backstory. He is still a creepy guy for sure, and as a Gm I just like information so don't do it just appease me but his reason behind killing just doesn't hit me/ Go to Comment

Palladium uses a system very similar to this and is Extremely detailed... to much so IMHO. But just to get a better idea on how they implemented it you should look that up for what to do, and what NOT to do. Go to Comment

This somehow needs to be sent to all new members of the site in as a link in a PM somehow so they can read it. As a matter of fact a codec of helpful subs should be sent to every new members as a sort of required reading if you will to help them along. Possibly to help stave off those thinking they need to copy and paste other works to get good votes and focus more on their own work. I likes it... yess I's doos' Go to Comment

Why wouldn't magic be divine? It seems like a legitimate possibility to me. To be able to control the fabric of reality, which is what your doing. Making fireballs from thin air seems like altering the flow of reality. Sounds like the realm of the divine. I'm not saying that it is the only explanation but it seems like it.

This isn't spectacular by any means and some require more work than simply the rolling of a random die roll. The arena one for instance.

However, I enjoy the idea of random happenings to a group. I had a cut purse try to steal the coin purse of a player who caught him. After some yelling, threats of personal and bodily harm that would scar the young boys psyche, the youth ended up being a hireling of sorts for the player running errands and gaining information and hard to get items of illegal nature.
