Fox's Dragon Scale Armor
Items  (Armor)   (Magical)
Murometz's comment on 2012-11-13 08:02 PM
It takes the mind of a dragon to comprehend carving off a section of your own hide and painstakingly crafting the bits into a magical artifact.

I really like that line, because dragons *should be* inscrutable as Dozus says.

So what is Old Fox's grand purpose? I want to know. Also, how many suits would you say exist? I ask because each time the dragon skins himself a bit more?

And that begs the question, does dragon hide (scales) grow back?

Something about this idea stimulates me.

Camel's Hump
Items  (Other)   (Non-Magical)
Murometz's comment on 2012-11-13 07:46 PM
From a fantasy perspective i like it, because its exotic...and alcohol.

But it nags at me as a lover of said alcohol. Camel humps are filled with fat for the most part, not liquid. So instead of taking out the water, it would involve scooping out fat. And fermenting grapes with bits of meat and fat clinging to the hump's walls, is not only downright disgusting (ANY culture would agree ) but it messes with the fermentation process itself.

But I like it from a fantasy perspective! :-) Go to Comment

Yes, and I can list a few more from around the world that are even more horrifying----coffee shat out by civets in SE Asia, boar rectums and anal canals, barely grilled over ash in various parts of Africa, and so on----but my point was, you can't ferment wine in fat.

The stomach-churning aspects don't bother me a bit :) Go to Comment

I had fun guessing (falsely no doubt) the real-life inspirations (if there were any) for each of these. Khloe K.= Genesis, etc (I would go one, but i'm afraid to lol)

Well, it has dwarven feel for sure. I agree with axle for the most part, it is a good legend and history for a world, if a bit disjointed and mish-mashed together. Undead dwarves are fun. I particularly enjoyed the beginning, where you discuss the clans, geography, and societal notes. Go to Comment

The premise isn't Roanoke. The premise, as i see it, is a closed dwarven city, beset by mystery, which begs exploration. Almost a LotR vibe. Can picture the PCs approaching a door in the mountain...speak friend and enter. He did also say "dwarves" a lot.

I like the set-up! Its old-school yet makes me want to go adventuring asap to help the dwarves! The Roanoke twist only adds to the sense of sinister mystery. The "creature" is also fascinating. I don't know why, but immediately after reading this, I thought of combining The Devourer of Here, Moon's Sound Elemental, P-p-p-p-p-pktt and the Forge of Woe to try to explain this alien "entity" to PCs Go to Comment

It may lack dwarven detail as you say, but the premise oozes dwarvism.

The fact that it can be played with any ethnic group, only adds to its usefulness.

Not my cup of tea content-wise, but still found myself lost and caught up in the tale! Expertly written and presented. And what they both said! Go to Comment

Zardoz of course brings to mind one of the worst sci-fi movies ever inflicted upon mankind and Sean Connery's highly disturbing outfit.

Other than that, i love this entry! Big Z's story reads like a Marvel Universe character bio--approached by a 'mysterious benefactor' and all that--great! There are also Sons of Anarchy, GI Joe, and clockwork orange vibes. Love the gang roster! Go to Comment

I'm sure I don't know. What would any npc think, upon reading a sub about themselves? And thinking about it, I'm pretty sure I couldn't care less. Go to Comment

The journal excerpt was amazing. Very original take on a necromancer, that's for sure, she seeks immortality for everyone. I LOVE how her story begins epically, and then this line---"Her survival was purely the work of a traveling necromancer who happened to be staying in the town which massacred the clan." I really like the dichotomy there of "fated to be this way" fractured by, "happenstance and serendipity". You can tell this was written with some emotion and extra care. The comments are good too. The questions apt, and the answers satisfactory.

Powerful piece. Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2012-10-20 10:29 AM
I figured that for dwarves, "the lame" already carries a strong negative connotation. Spartan-esque thinking. Born lame, he was probably a useless warrior and smith. He could not "work". What could he turn to, but evil?

Also, I did a piss-poor job describing these knives. Or at least describing the idea in my head. These knives are supposed to be reason that dwarves are in fact no longer fecund. I think I left this a stub because I didn't do a good job transferring this from the brain to the page. Go to Comment
