Vitralara, the Mongrelmen
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (City/ Ruin)
Murometz's comment on 2013-08-06 12:25 PM
I've always loved the dnd mongrelman and their vague mythologies. This is as good an expose of how and why they came to be as I've ever seen. Tremendous detail!! I want to immediately experiment with the possible combinations!

The vestige populations of Vitralara is a great touch...men growing antlers, women sporting tiger-tales.

caesar brings up an interesting question. Do they or do they not want to procreate? Go to Comment
Dorgen's Hammer
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Sentient)
Murometz's comment on 2013-08-06 12:00 PM
I like the fact that the hammer and write-up seems both "classic" and yet offers something "new". Love the delayed effect. Also love the visual Strolen created of running down a hallway smacking walls (albeit a loooong hallway)

I think my favorite bit is that it is made from a 'hard' (petrified?) type of mushroom rather than wood. And not that it matters I suppose, but I'm digging your pseudo-eastern European dwarven names and the braids/beards/hairstyle descriptors.

The plot hooks really enliven this shield. The image is cool. Also, intrigued with this Ogrogrzyb stuff! And love the names.

I like this. Reminiscent of GoT's Iron Bank of Braavos, despite the genre difference! Go to Comment

All quirky and interesting! So easy to just steal an idea or lifeform from this post, and expand it if need be. Really fun scroll! Go to Comment

Geez, comment-less and vote-less? This is damn good! I'd go with the Italian Job plothook.

Also, this!!!

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

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!!!
