A lovely detail that helps one understand the cosmic era's zeitgeist. Also, what Ted asked. Go to Comment

"(stream videos of prior rioter's fates, in full HD!)"

"Instead of a cop with a bullhorn, each shield flickers between warning imagery, stay back, desist and disperse and talking heads extolling the virtue of going away peacefully followed by a litany of offenses that will be incurred if protestors or rioters persist. All I can see is the thin face of Grand Moff Tarken on a cycle: go home, your govt cares about you, resistors will be shot"

that is just bloody brilliant, mates. Go to Comment

Yes, a bit of Norse myth served as inspiration (that and encountering Ted in chat 3am in the morning).

I had to read this twice to realize that this isn't a "western-themed" sub! :)

Join the Dwarven Guild in the forums, and I will begin to share their secrets with you! But only if you join the Guild :-)


Hmm, I dunno, no matter how many times, i say aloud, "Dwarves breed cats as well, though only this one breed did i come across in my stay with the bearded-brothers", it still sounds good to me in that fantasy/medieval-ish way. Then again, i twist language to suit me, so you're probably right. Go to Comment

Interesting. So you're poking fun at those Nigerian Bank emails we all get? I'll have you know, that no less than a "prince" from Lagos, has offered me $16,000,000 euros if I simply first "lend him" $500 for bank transfer fees. You see, he is a political prisoner, and.... Go to Comment

His key-beard of unlocking is pure gold!! Can picture him walking up to an intricate triple-locked door. His hanging whiskers animate and dive into two key-holes like moray eels, squirming around. His beard meanwhile, (i picture it golden-blonde for some reason), contorts itself into a bizarre key-like form and enters the third key-hole. His eyes roll back into his head....clack, clack, click.

Simply the concept of twisting the phoenix/bennu bird into its dark-winged opposite is a magnificent one! A true cosmic horror!

I'm slightly less crazy about its name. It seems modern-ish, for such a legendary being..."murder"? For my tastes, even "Deathblaze" for example, seems more epic, dunno. I feel this avian darkness deserves a more epic name.

Would love to see a bit more on the creature too. What else does it do? Where does it go, why does it go there, some character interaction of some sort. Some further legends or anecdotal horror.

Otherwise, great! Go to Comment

A wand of wonder for the Superheroes set. I do love these type of lists! Some weirdly useful (21, 75, 83, 31, lol, 44, etc...), some excruciatingly trivial and ridiculously annoying! (101).

(and for all its lovely silliness, its a perfect print-out page for the notebook of any Supes/Mutants GM).

Sorry can't help myself...


"Kalima, KAH-LEE-MAAAAH!!!"


"Indy!"


"I'm coming Shorty!"


Love it. Creepy, eldritch and necromantic! Makes you want to take a quick shower. Of course the image helps as well! One question. Why Moira? What does it signify? Why is this dread chalice of doom, named after an irish lass?

Murometz's comment on 2012-09-28 12:35 PM

I'm torn. On one hand I agree with Dossta and Strolen's take (i even just up-voted the comment), yet I feel i have to add my 2 cents as well here, and stick up for caesar. This is a location in his world. He is describing a place, travel log style. It is geography with cultural, day-in-the-life bits, and it is as useful for gms perusing the site, as any other submission may be that features 68 plot hooks, and 900 ways to use a sub from a pc's perspective. I can actually prove my point by linking DOZENS of submissions here as examples of locations, tales, etc that feature NO plot hooks or any OVERT pc interest whatsoever, that strolenites loved and voted highly on. Why am I so sure? because *I* am a gm who peruses this site for locations (among other things) and find myself not caring at all whether or not a place has pc plot hooks or not. I can add those ,i mean, its my job to make up the evening's "adventure". But in the case of this sub, I can choose to use this geography and the cultural notes as a base, if for example, i don't feel like wracking my brains for a detailed location, where all the action happens. THEN, i can put whatever i want in these islands, and come up with 1 million different ways to hook pcs. I guess my point is i personally don't mind reading location subs that don't cry out to pcs. I can also steal the little things...like the "shit ships" coming in full of manure. Very flavorful tid-bit (seriously) Or the ghost rumors on Pravus, etc... Having said that, I do agree this place can use a bit more "oomph" :-)
