Great one indeed! At last, the fabled City of Glass reveals its many secrets! Forganthus' question is an interesting one. Was that addressed in another sub?

Interesting! Pokemon ball meets Scras' Cosmic Era, was my main takeaway. Really like the sample pets! Weird and memorable. + .5 for all the samples. Go to Comment

11) Buruvian Shellcrackers

T’adshi’gazmu, as they are known in the far-flung galaxy where they originate, resemble sea-scorpions, anywhere from six to eight inches in length, but are not aquatic by nature. Unusual creatures comprised almost entirely of chitin, with numerous appendages, feelers, antennae, prodders, and pincers, they are not a good choice for those wanting emotionally satisfying interactions with their pets. Their claim to fame is the astonishing, prehensile strength of their pincer grips. If they can grasp an object, they can crush it like kindling, up to and including titanium steel or even harder materials! Originally, these critters were used by the highly unpleasant Buruvi race for crushing and opening the bizarre, stone-hard shells of the mollusk-like creatures of their home world. Over the centuries Shellcrackers have found their way inside the PetDex cubes, and are now prized by owners for their ability to destroy *anything* they can get their pincers around (approximately something 1.5 inches in diameter or smaller) once taken out of their cube. Creatures of little intelligence (thankfully), great care must be taken when letting “loose” the Shellcrackers, as one Captain Kurkus Three-Finger can attest to, for example. Starship engineers have also been documented using Shellcrackers to snap cables and wiring in emergency situations.

They require little “care”, as they feed on invisible particles, found in almost any given environment, and seem perfectly content to simply crush and break, any object put in front of them. There are rumors of giant Shellcrackers somewhere out there in the vastness of space, and tales of these creatures ripping through starships as if through aluminum foil, but thankfully those have not found their way into PetDex cubes…as of yet.

Nice. I've come across this arrow in that dungeon crawl game...Den of Monsters i think it was called. I like the "if miss, enchantment lost" bit.

1,000 of these given to an archer troupe could wreck havoc!! Go to Comment

Love it. Everything you want in an exotic flower. You get a bit of the evocative, a bit of the ol' NatGeo, the applications and uses, a splash of legend, and its adoption as a cult's symbol. Green-thumbs up! Go to Comment

Brilliant! That rarity...super-short, but GREAT! The comments are good too, every one made me nod as i read it. Makes you immediately think of uses/abuses for this beautiful item. Forganthus sums it all up nicely with....Ring of Epic Badass!!

I have to ask, since no one has...what pray tell is the origin tale of this thing?!

Murometz's comment on 2013-05-15 11:02 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

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 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

Naturally, this orbiting hunk just begs for a session centering on it!! My favorite part is the bribing/corruption angle, which really adds verisimilitude, if one is familiar with India's colossal bribing/corruption machinery. Go to Comment
