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
Fata Morgana
Lifeforms  (Ethereal)   (Any)
Murometz's comment on 2014-01-13 11:27 PM
Update: Big debates rage among scholars who delve into such minutae, as to whether or not the "creatures" known as the Fata Morganas are Elemental in nature, or came into being from illusionary magics, gone awry.

Fata Morganas are difficult if not impossible to describe. After all,, they appear as whatever they want, and no one has yet managed to produce any Fata Morgana "essence: for study, much less a "corpse".

will occasionally remain as one "projected image" for extended periods of time, thus it is possible for a tribe to dwell on an "illusion" of an island, or for seamen to sail upon the mirage of a ship. Go to Comment

Argnid
Plots  (Crisis)   (Single-Storyline)
Murometz's comment on 2013-06-10 09:12 AM
Looks reminiscent of a Khargra. A nice and concise critter, as SE said. Of course one can extrapolate further....a mountain dwarf clan with massive Argnid-shell shields...the mystery of the vanished mountain climbers needs solving...something the Argnid couldn't digest (dingus PCs need) lies in a pile of poop in its lair, etc...

Pommel Stones Of Vohu Manah And The Breath-takers Mace
Items  (Mystical)   (Single-Storyline)
Murometz's comment on 2013-06-10 09:42 AM
The name of the sub is great! Very evocative. Like some long-lost short story title by Clark Ashton Smith or Dunsany. Good myth, interesting info (pommel stones).

This passage is quite juicy..." If a warrior was captured they could use their pommel stone as ransom. It is also possible that these served as a type "dog tag", the returning of the pommel stone to a family served as proof that the warrior had died." Opens up a slew of rp possibilities.

Nicely done. Go to Comment
Three Unusual Types Of Fire

Murometz's comment on 2013-06-10 09:49 AM
Ash Fire is a good one!

I see where you're going with the Slime idea. Could make a nice one-nighter... "Surfing the Wave of Slime"

This reminds me of a sub by Scras from some time ago, detailing a few unique types of fire. I'd link it here, but alas, the name of the sub escapes me at the moment. Go to Comment

Wow. I really really enjoyed reading this. Excellently written and presented, the NPC capsules are awesome, and the moral conundrum is a barrel of fun. What a great dynamic you set up here!

Then I got to this line by axle..."Might all of Mendalusus learn that they are all summoned beings!?!?!" A whole (brave?) new world presents itself!!!

Solid, thought-provoking expose. So in essence, the people of the cosmic era think pretty much like the people of past and present ages. Humans are expendable. The rich and powerful strive to rise above the "menials".

These thoughts are reflected in today's newscasts...

lead story tonite: Some teen (daughter/son of someone famous or rich) has crashed the car and died.

..and in other news (brief mention between weather and sports): 900 people were were killed by a bomb somewhere. Go to Comment
An Ode To The Colour Red
Items  (Books and Scrolls)   (Magical)
Murometz's comment on 2013-06-10 10:27 AM
This is quite clever and an interesting expose on dubious arcana....and blood.

Thanks to Moonlake for solving the puzzle. I second her thoughts on using this for non-fantasy games as well. Brings Poe to mind for some reason, which is good. Can see this book as a good dingus in an early Renaissance or Victorian-goth type game.

A worthy Occult Guild leader! Great progression and character arc.

"One with the devil" was fun reading, with him carving symbols into his own chest to outwit the demon.

I also really like this spell... "able to cast a crimson haze in the sky which bathes the land a bloody red in a two kilometre radius. Any abilities associated with the moon or moonlight are nullified while under this haze. This includes the Lycanthrope curse."

Powerful, yet somehow subtle, and reminds me of "old sorcery." Go to Comment

Crawling Giants
Plots  (Crisis)   (Single-Storyline)
Murometz's comment on 2013-06-07 01:04 PM
This is the kind of "weird" i like. I don't need semi-scientific explanations on why they crawl or have every question on their existence explained. The unanswered questions is what gives them that "alien" feel and makes them intriguing to use. This has a somewhat chthonic vibe to it too, as if these giants are a nod to titans cast out and entombed by the "gods" eons ago...

mangle worms are great, crawlstones is a nice detail, and this line--- "In the strange half-seconds before he is fully awake, his eyes will form within their sockets, like an activated CRT monitor that must laboriously conjure up an electric image. The pupils will be tangled skeins of ice"----is great.

the only thing that bothered me for some reason as I read this, were the humorous tidbits (three carts of casserole, pissing them off, etc...) That stuff distracted a bit from the "alienness".

Anyway, i'm going to use them somehow! Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2013-05-31 09:15 AM
Nicely done. Very much like how you used pertinent info from the Falhathian Minotaur culture to describe her current dynamic. Of course I can't help but "feel" for her, hoping she finds that fleeting love interest. And finally, at the risk of sounding overly-simplistic, Minotaur bards are fun to contemplate. Go to Comment
