Very Nice Maggot! Whats not too like? Here's my favorite passage. Curls my toes..

"Selecting the choicest beauties from Nayre's harem, he coupled with them as his bothers once had with the daughters of the priest-kings of Arahuai, and from their wombs obtained numerous offspring, awarding each of them a seperate part of his invisible empire to control"

I love the detail, love the Copo's outlook on life, and and of course, I like that you included bits and pieces of my world in this :D

Oh and I liked the constant Sarahi presence! Go to Comment

Very interesting substance. Could still use a few more details. And I guess I'll throw a "shout out" to myself for the plot hooks :D

Could this be the near-mythical Greek Fire?? Go to Comment

Ayyosha is the 'resident deity' of the Cloister, and OTF has no god. THE SOURCE is a RUSE! Its a mind control cult (shhh, dont tell the people) Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2006-04-07 12:31 AM

hmmm....this might be difficult to explain properly. We wanted to minimize the demon influence and maximize the strenghth of human WILL! Ayyosha's will. An exaggerated take on what the human spirit is capable of, when faced with ultimate desperation and hopelessness, so to speak. Ayyosha achieved a new state of being due to some unknown universal force. The demon was added to make this easier to digest as an rp concept. Of course there is resistence to the One True Faith! Stay tuned! There are many that twist the nebulous ideas for their own design. Thats the OTF's beauty. Easily altered and recalibrated. See Earl Garmon Cabbagestalk in Qacha's Neck to name one such miscreant. And your damn right! It aint easy taking over the world! Passively-aggresively or otherwise. I'm sure Scras will have his own take. Thats the pleasure of working with him! We dont step on each other's toes

I guess I'll be the lone voice of dissent. Why is everyone gushing about this being such an "new" thing? "new dungeon environment?" ummm "6??".

As always, it is written VERY WELL! But I dont get the uproar??? Haven't you all sent your players through ice caves countless times? Is this really a brand new idea?? My pc's have frozen their backsides off in ice caves thousands of times!

Ice caves are cool(hehe) dont get me wrong, and fun to play in. This sub does a great job describing said caves for gaming purposes, but ummm...they are ice caves! I know you've played in them before!!

I vote 3.5 which according to rankings means "Sweet Idea", which it is. Go to Comment
Ouranga, the Tempest-Lord
NPCs  (Major)   (Combative)
Murometz's comment on 2006-04-03 11:17 PM
He does have trouble wielding a sword as his ring finger has been severed at the base, his last words as a duke and hopeful for the throne were 'you will have to cut the ring off of my finger.' They did.

Thats the line that did it!!

This should be a template on how to make an ordinary bad-tempered "fighter" , COME ALIVE!!

he needs 10-15 squires? thats a lotta squire baby! does #15 carry his chamberpot?

and finally, is it Ouranga or Ourange? I prefer former. Go to Comment

Cheka beat me to the Heroin line.

My pc's just finished getting banged up and will be heading to a nearby monastery they heard about next session, for some much needed healing and R&R. The monastery just became a crack addict den!! The monastery is in the pepper hills you see and.....

Actually, not heroin, more like addiction to pain-killers, me'thinks, would be a more appropriate analogy. Go to Comment

I love the idea of professional mourners! Prince Golta's dad is a fathers' father, if you know what I mean! very nice story.

Isn't a GP/per mourner a bit steep? Silver would do them good :) Go to Comment

you'd be suspicious? yeah, so? ever hear of pc curiousity?

the "stupidname" comment is just stupid...take a look at some 4.5 and 5 vote posts BH, and you'll see that names here at Strolens run the gamut. It would have been much nicer to simply say, You weren't crazy about the name!

Your third paragraph I have no issue with.

Fourth paragraph is once again, unnecessarily cruel!

Use your powers of perception for chrissakes! Does this look like it will ever be a masterpiece? Obviously not!...but there's no reason for these type of comments. You may think your "helping" the guy get better, but you are simply deriding him, and extinguishing his enthusiasm!

See Scrasamax' and Moon's comments above for whats known as "constructive criticism"

If you feel like Drackler isnt "learning"...then simply let it go!

Sorry, but this is getting me riled up! Leave the guy alone! He's young, he's new, and at least he's semi-trying. And he happens to be a nice guy to boot! Go to Comment

sorry...still riled up.

its the phrases he uses..."led by the nose" being my main pet peeve!

No matter how many paragraphs of pseudo-intellectual pedantic babble is posted on this sub, its obvious by now, that this one is what it is!

AG- your a human nature buff right? It just pisses me off, that its so much more pleasurable for some people to look down from high above and try to "educate" others and sounding needlessly pompous, while being anonymous no less!

GRRRR...ok counting to ten slowly...feeling better. I'll stop now. :P Go to Comment
