*LOVE* Bleakwood. Dislike stats. What to do?

A good system for character creation, AG! Favorite part is the example scroll, summing it all up.

Wouldn't mind seeing Echo rp the witch-doctor Blob :) Go to Comment

I wanted to dislike this, because hack poetry (my OWN first and foremost!!!!!) is well, you know...hackey.

But this isn't bad. Has a nice flow!

I see now what you're doing with the Clichea theme, and I like it.

Suggestion: What if you do Clichea as an "old-school" Codex with Scroll entries such as...

Clichea: Items: Lux Staff, Bastard Axe, etc

Clichea Locations: abc, xyz, etc

And so on.

Ditto. I'll go with solid as well. Good details and an old-school feel! Your forum post explains its point well too.

kinda weird yet interesting. Slightly reminiscent of 70's era fantasy/sci-fi. Love the name of the stones. Flows off the tongue! Go to Comment

Last thought. Strolen will probably hit me with a rolled-up newspaper for mentioning spelling but...

*because* this is a fun read and a great resource for pulling ideas for games, can you please go back and do a once-over on spelling? Things like holocost, beaurarcy, mongole, expairment, etc. the amount of typos is just a bit jarring. Go to Comment

i'm no sci-fi expert, but this reads crisp, has just the right amount of science to sociology ratio, and smells like a damn good premise for a novella. Bit creepy too, in a good way.

Murometz's comment on 2015-09-15 07:20 PM
This is good stuff. Read it while double-parked waiting for kids, and got caught up in the story. Reminds me of Lee Child's clipped, no-words-wasted style of writing a bit actually.

Can't help but add, under feb 2021, I can see this line after

"We'll give the listening device a miss. No sense in placing one you know about anyway."

----few minutes later---

Kevin found the listening device soon after the spooks had left. Heh, these guys couldn't help themselves, he thought, as he plucked it. Go to Comment

Was recently reading about ASI, Artificial super intelligence and yeah...this is just a fascinating article and makes one (me anyway) ponder the cosmos and our legacy as a species. Comments are great too!

Murometz's comment on 2015-09-05 12:21 PM

Can be summed up with the word "POWER." Definitely doesn't need any specifics or stats. That would defeat the point of the piece.

I like that there isn't any great curse or dark corruption or mighty flaw inherent in the blade. Refreshing. Also enjoyed the purplish prose.

For the life of me I'm just not sure how to use this in a game, other than some "lesson" to teach PCs (the hard way) or perhaps as simply myth and legend.

Enjoyable read, particularly some of your turns of the phrase. And I learned a new word...clerestory.

"Telekinesis is by far the best means of manipulating and transporting these creatures."

Aaaand, I immediately pictured a wizard "walking" behind a massive swarm of worms, controlling them telekinetically, heading to the town that did him wrong all those years ago.

Additionally, a sinister Guild of Sappers and Miners have struck a deal with some chthonic elemental lord, and acquire the means to summon/control the worms. The next castle they target is in some mighty trouble. Go to Comment

Couldn't put my finger on my thoughts until reading Scras' comment. Something about medieval fantasy settings and arson doesn't quite jibe somehow. Then again, there is the Pyromancers Guild of grrm that comes to mind. I love this dude regardless and would go the route Scras suggests!

I like this. It's cute yet utilitarian. Axle's comment made me laugh. I've never heard of "Among Other" but now I'm thinking of a meta-sling that quickly "plots" "idea seeds" growing them into full fledged ideas. I want one. Lol.
