Wow. I would add a press-gang element in there somewhere, unless i missed it, but holy crap this is useful. Go to Comment
Gypsy Names
Plots  (Crisis)   (Single-Storyline)
Murometz's comment on 2013-05-15 10:02 PM
I kinda like this because its actually useful, and I don't need the meanings of the names. The names are consistently (obviously) Tsigani, meaning we don't jump around from Phalzalzafrax to...Bob. You'd be surprised how many "name groupings" don't follow suit.

one note: Tsigan means "gypsy" in several eastern European languages, so that one may not fit.

What Strolen said.Classic dungeon-crawl puzzle.Love it! I would take some license with the wording on the rhyme though, if I was to use this.

Good job, these aren't that easy to pull off well, and you did! Go to Comment

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

I find this an interesting take on how to role-play neutrality. Great comments too, pulling the idea in various directions. 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

Amusing and clever in all the right places and has that consistent dwarviness throughout. I can tell you had fun writing this! Go to Comment

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

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

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

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! :)
