I'm not sure why I never commented on this. A. Its dwarven and B. I love it. Great amount of detail and just the right amount of dwarvishness. I have one of these somewhere in an old notebook, but this one is so much richer! Go to Comment
To echo the others, really cool take on Moon religion, with a strong sense of... "Yes, I can see this religion happening!" Love it! I find myself wanting to know more. The nuances and minutiae and such, and some answers to the questions asked. This has a great inspirational spark to it. Go to Comment
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
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.
Geez, comment-less and vote-less? This is damn good! I'd go with the Italian Job plothook.
" A resident of Balkanistan can be watching his high quality degrading pornography while eating a frozen dinner made of pretty much the same woman he was pleasuring himself to minutes earlier, all the while scratching his stitches where he got the new set of kidneys. " Go to Comment
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
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
