Desert Rose
Locations  (Regional)   (Desert)
Murometz's comment on 2013-09-17 01:00 PM
well-told tale with little clues to give away the surprise ending ("spit the pomegranate seeds anywhere, give each a chance to sprout..."). I do so love mysterious anomalies and legends of the desert sands.

The ending ever-so-slightly reminds me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vORsKyopHyM . If you haven't seen this yet, do so.

Interestingly, this could probably be linked to the Songs of Fantasy codex as well, since Sting's tune seems to be an inspiration. Go to Comment
Eshnes Pehe - The Blood Drinker
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Murometz's comment on 2013-09-12 10:40 AM
I like this a lot. The primeval mythology flows simply and elegantly without complications or unnecessary drivel. The Godknife...sacrifice the living en masse for the god's return, or, go thee forth and slay yourself a god. Go to Comment
Demonic Pipe Organ
Dungeons  (Underground)   (Puzzles)
Murometz's comment on 2013-09-13 02:15 PM
As someone who has gm'd several (ancient) campaigns in the Nine Hells, i find this a refreshingly original way to get there, as opposed to your standard "gate" or "pit"!

Also, as opposed to Roger Corman, I see this as a perfect Dario Argento movie!! With blood and boobs of course. And nuns. And Demons. And an ever-so-innocent, young and naive American concert pianist, visiting Florence or Rome. He becomes infatuated with a mysterious woman who is on the run from some demon-loving-cultist types, as she is in possession of a bizarre musical composition notebook.... Go to Comment
Refuge Beneath the Waves
Locations  (Regional)   (Water)
Murometz's comment on 2013-09-12 10:48 AM
Reads like a fantasy-world's version (polemic) of the discovery of atomic power, as Scras mentions. That part of it for me, seems to be laid on a little thick, BUT, i LOVE the brave new underwater world you've created here! Some very original ideas and images. Go to Comment
Dwarven Calendar

Murometz's comment on 2013-10-12 06:57 PM
I'm not sure why I never commented on this. A. Its dwarven and B. I love it. Great amount of detail and just the right amount of dwarvishness. I have one of these somewhere in an old notebook, but this one is so much richer! Go to Comment

To echo the others, really cool take on Moon religion, with a strong sense of... "Yes, I can see this religion happening!" Love it! I find myself wanting to know more. The nuances and minutiae and such, and some answers to the questions asked. This has a great inspirational spark to it. Go to Comment

11' pole is hilarious!

Many of these I've seen before, most of them even right here on the site, but its a well-rendered list with some thought put into it, and it managed to give me a few new ideas besides. Go to Comment
Vitralara, the Mongrelmen
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (City/ Ruin)
Murometz's comment on 2013-08-06 12:25 PM
I've always loved the dnd mongrelman and their vague mythologies. This is as good an expose of how and why they came to be as I've ever seen. Tremendous detail!! I want to immediately experiment with the possible combinations!

The vestige populations of Vitralara is a great touch...men growing antlers, women sporting tiger-tales.

caesar brings up an interesting question. Do they or do they not want to procreate? Go to Comment
Dorgen's Hammer
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Sentient)
Murometz's comment on 2013-08-06 12:00 PM
I like the fact that the hammer and write-up seems both "classic" and yet offers something "new". Love the delayed effect. Also love the visual Strolen created of running down a hallway smacking walls (albeit a loooong hallway)

I think my favorite bit is that it is made from a 'hard' (petrified?) type of mushroom rather than wood. And not that it matters I suppose, but I'm digging your pseudo-eastern European dwarven names and the braids/beards/hairstyle descriptors.

I like this. Reminiscent of GoT's Iron Bank of Braavos, despite the genre difference! Go to Comment

All quirky and interesting! So easy to just steal an idea or lifeform from this post, and expand it if need be. Really fun scroll! Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2014-01-18 10:28 PM
Couldn't agree more with above comments. Africa, so rife with potential for the Cosmic Era!! I wouldn't mind reading more, like the Kinshasa and Lagos stuff. I have a fascination with those cities, along with Brazzaville.

I like all the lingo and acronyms in this one. Zeppelins still floating in the skies is a great touch. Go to Comment

Esoterica meets application. Its a much better and thought-provoking piece after all the updates. Some great stuff to steal here for a GM, even if the system isn't used as is. Go to Comment
