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
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
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.....
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
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
You worked hard on this I know. Your love for the knights is obvious and all the interesting details puts this over the top! The tiers were great and the different armor was a unique touch. That was my favorite. Well done!
I might be adding more comments as I re-read and fully digest the info. Go to Comment
Sorry haven't slept in days, otherwise I'd have a more intelligent comment. I will vote for now, and come back to this soon, to share some thoughts. I love it! It feels vividly real! I can SMELL the place! I also have a feeling Scras and/or Moon will say what I want to say here for me :D
A town has a festival every year in the dead of winter. The festival of birds. The towns folk dress in feathery robes and beaked masks and dance and frolic in the belief that the changes of the seasons are controlled by the presence of birds. According to tradition, the festival tricks Spring into coming early because the birds have returned.
