Not to nit-pick, because I actually love this, but I noticed you saying, "added solution outline." I reread it, and unless i'm blind, I don't actually see any "solution outline". What am I missing? Anyway, once again, good job with this! These kind of puzzles bring back great memories of golden-age gaming. I'm glad this survived the "Purge", and now, the Survivor burning tower icon somehow adds a nice touch aesthetically. Go to Comment
Vauraki
Lifeforms  (Unique)   (Desert)
Murometz's comment on 2013-05-10 05:15 PM
Some heady myth-making here. Good stuff! Evocative imagery of a crimson-stained obsidian wolf! Some nice prose.

I'm curious regarding the paragraph that begins..."Rather than possessing intelligence and sentience, Vauraki is elemental in nature. It is a primal, bestial force...."

The Ozquin Dremorix gave birth to the Vauraki based on faith-and-belief "projection". If enough believe strongly...it comes to be. So far so good. When the occasional "upstart" Ouzquin Dremorix attempts to summon/control Vauraki, do they understand that it is a "primal, uncaring, elemental entity", or do they have some idea that they themselves created it, and thus *can* potentially worship/control it?

If that question doesn't make sense, fair enough, we'll move on :p

I'll close with...yet another great addition to the world of Ouzquin Dremorix! Go to Comment

What an interesting format for a character write-up! I love the "Battles attended" and the "peer quotes"! Terrific that. Go to Comment

Hmm,solid, if a bit dry, as Dossta says. We may have to add this concept to "30 Divine Concepts"! :)

"Worthington Biotechnologies would be later bought out and subsumed into the conglomerate of Gordon, Kingsman, and Thorne (GKT)."

Well, this is interesting and well written! So of course i get a whole Scientology meets Matrix vibe reading this. Very cool and modern (or post-modern. One of those) Go to Comment

"because the subject seems humorous but it's written in a serious way."

That's what makes it good :) Go to Comment

You know, I actually don't mind this format for a character. It does tell you everything you need to know to "use" him in whatever fashion.Since this is a character in a story you're writing, i can also understand how this format helps you plan your tale. Its just that we tend to love prose and your take on the character's history, mind-set, dynamic within story (or game), etc, as opposed to just the basic structure. Does that make sense?

Fair enough. I guess my question then is...in your Forum intro you mentioned that you don't role-play but like to write. So I find myself curious as to why you seem focused on a "character sheet" to begin with, instead of free-style writing? Again, just curious. Go to Comment
Mriulnarth, Heart of the Demons

Murometz's comment on 2013-03-14 11:27 AM
This is a pretty cool write-up with some flair. I like the demonic feel of the piece throughout, like all the names, and enjoyed the background "voice". The Wall is indeed a gruesome encounter. Good campaign fiber here. Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2013-03-04 11:10 PM
I'm a big fan of seemingly incongruous locations in an otherwise wasteland. It has that sinister arctic flavor hidden behind a veil of the commonplace. I can see a Cthulhu mythos short-story starting out this way... Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2013-03-07 07:34 PM
A suitable suit of super-armor for a high-magic campaign. The last quote is interesting. Somehow, i find myself wanting to know who Pivon and Avnon are now.

I guess its the name, i keep thinking of a dagger rather than armor as I read this. So subliminal, that name! :)

Nothing unusual, but good amount of detail and a "homey" feel to the place. I hope i didn't miss a reference to it, but I think this needs a few lines about the gambling aspects...

...which reminds me of this exchange:

horse-lover: Gambling is whats wrong with horse-racing
realist: Without gambling there wouldn't be horse-racing.

Fermi coined that? Bah! I've been asking "Where is Everybody?" since at least 89'. When did Fermi get around to it? :)

very cool concoctions! And I like the voice of the piece, adding entertainment value to the reading. Firewater and Utterblack are my faves. Go to Comment
