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.

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!

Silk Armor? The Mongols wore silk undergarments under layers of leather armor. Why? Because silk is very strong. If an arrow hit them and made it through their armor, it would usually not have enough energy to puncture the silk. It could still enter their body but, because the silk would not break, the arrow's barbs could not do their work and the arrow could easily be removed leaving a relatively clean wound considering normal arrow wounds.
