Francois Rabelais ala Scrasamax. Its beautiful! I wish we had more subs like this! What a fun place and wonderfully skewed satire! Is there a twin city nearby with a whole other crew of crazies? Go to Comment

Just felt the urge to additionally comment in honor of Mourngrymn's "Voting" sub.

Of course this is a metaphor not a place, I thought I covered that with the Rabelais comment. But I guess many people might not be familiar with the ascerbic Francois.

This gets a 5 from me, because I LOVED Gargantua and Pantagruel when I first tackled the book in my teens, and because the absurdity and wit is so refreshing!

Oh and Scras, you may be a cunning linguist, but I am a master de' bater! Go to Comment

I have NO CLUE what Starcraft is or was, but the post is sublime! Delicious details, but you know what?...I could have used even more detail with such an interesting race and world, not being familiar with its scope. Well done Moon!

Interesting crew. Like Spartans meets Samurais meets the early
Gnostics (The Logos) meets the Moonhunter.

The ideas are great, just a little rough around the edges with the overall explanations and presentation. I like the ritual suicide bit a lot, and the last paragraph on spirits and ghosts. Nice! Go to Comment

Thats not nice Cheka...mvcr4 is new and just actually asked for advice on how to improve.

mvcr4, you need to put some more effort into this character. Ok...lots more! The history, the personality, motivations, etc...I do like the flesh chunks missing from his arm. :D

You have something here, but its VERY little. He's a mercenary, he is an elf raised by dwarves. Thats good. Go back and fill out his whole story. If you want to PM me, I'd be glad to help.

take a look at some NPC posts by others, you'll see what I mean. And as per your request on main chat, post something in forum section, as far as what you need help with, and everyone will try to aid you. Go to Comment

Black Vinegar is unique to the famous Dwarven chefs of Degroz-Dag. It is made under the supervision of specialized dwarves who's soul purpose is the vinegar's quality control and keeping the process a secret. Black vinegar is made when the darkest dwarven meads go sour. Large amounts of sugar and other secret ingredients are added and the final product is akin to the long-aged syrupy, viscous balsamics of our world. Made properly, it requires at least ten years of aging in treated oaken barrels, away from any light sources or heat.

Black Vinegar, or Ooxsus as the dwarves call it, is then bottled and exported, as well as used by the dwarves themselves as a flavor addition to their meaty and hearty recipes. It is never used in the cooking process due to its extremely concentrated and piquant flavor, but as a final accent in the form of several gooey drops right before the meal is served. With its sharp, pungent smell and deep, smokey, muti-layered flavor, it is a favorite at all Dwarven marriage feasts.

The humans have taken to making imitation Ooxsus, but this comes out more sour and less thick than the dwarven original. This pleases the enterprising dwarves, since it just allows them to charge even more for their Ooxsus. Go to Comment

I was getting geared up to do a Homunculi entry of my own, and this is refreshing, because it re-confirms the beauty of this site. Same creature, VERY different approach.

All kinds of ideas assault my brains upon reading this. Go to Comment

Love subs like this! Travel guides for campaign worlds! People, Places and Things. Though I'm now familiar with most of these places from previous subs, its nice to see it all together. Gives the world overall panache! Go to Comment

This is how MAN achieves IMMORTALITY. His deeds, his works, and his myth live on long after his inevitable demise.

Great character! A few dozen such NPCs and the world quivers and begins to BREATHE! Go to Comment

In the inaccessible plateau of Hor-Nushan, there was always little crime. But in late autumn comes a maddening wind, that can drive the best man crazy, if only for a short time, make him turn on himself or others. For murder, the locals have devised a special punishment: the murderer has to dig a well for the family of his victim. The area is very dry, and having a good well is a source of wealth and prestige. In this way, the murderer atones for his deed and repays the family; perhaps they even find peace.
