Legendary Chinese Horses
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Any)
Murometz's comment on 2015-12-01 02:14 PM
I tend to agree with Dossta here. I really enjoyed the Chinese Lifeforms set of subs because at least the little information offered on those creatures was bizarre, exotic, and tickled the imagination. This here seems to be a listing of interchangeable horses with fancy names and nothing else. Even the link to the pics doesn't help, since they seem to be just random pics and photos of horses.

Spirit Spiders
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Tundra/ Arctic)
Murometz's comment on 2015-11-26 12:01 PM
Frostbiting rocks. I can see 'spirit spider parties' happening and slang created around the critters..."What's wrong with him?"..."High on the spider"

Good creature, with multiple fun details, including the explosions.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I also appreciate that their limbs are "fat and juicy" :) Go to Comment

Simple but clever, since the players are not expecting an actual "ying yang" image per se. Also like the stained-glass addition.

This is slick. No needless info. Conjures up images of that Ethan Hawke movie about the one day a year, when all laws are called off, mixed with fight club naturally, mixed with the opening day-of-the-dead sequence in the Spectre movie, mixed with hot-blooded, mano-a-mano machismo. Celebrity matches is good too. Likey!

Really cool. Amnesia city with addictive Flashback drugs, a sputtering red sun, and countless automatons. Love the atmosphere of this place. Great setting for a tale/game or three!

Wow, this has been an in-work for 5 years :)

So to comment:

I can picture the instrument having additional, perhaps unaccounted for, perhaps even sinister, "powers". What if playing a perfect guitar is only scratching the surface of what those runes are capable of...

Additionally, I find myself wanting to know about what happened to Alex Trible after he became a virtuoso, axe-man.

This is perfect.

Aside from the puzzle, awesome use of real-world references and inspiration, clever lore, constellations, amazing graphics...

Love it!!

I'm just glad this sub exists, because I have no patience personally to attempt something like this, yet tremendously appreciate having it handy, for my use (and abuse). Go to Comment

  • Great job on this one. The words flow, the setting is rife with realism and sci-fi in equal measures. There was a movie not too long ago that reminds me of this place, but I can't remember the name of it.

Love the paranoia of the residents based on the "here you can die slowly of suffocation..." comparison

Great writing here! From the tag line on, makes me sit up and pay attention. Can't help but feel sorry for these guys. Good job in bringing out the emotional angle. Good voice in this piece! Here's hoping that someday they'll find their Paradiso, be it real or abstract.

Love every word here. Have a 5'er.

You have carved out a unique niche, Mageek! Love the accompaniment of images. Bit stuffy reading in places as val mentions, but still so good!!

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

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

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
