I was going for a 4, until I got to the 'Orders'. Great addition, and great overall detail on submission. You have just officially inspired me to make my own homemade "One True Faith" into a submission.
Theology section is very nice too!
"His words had been captured by several of his followers. They came together to morn his death and compare notes"
This all reminds me of early Christianity of course, the Time of Prophets and the Apostles...before the tenets were codified and set in stone. Go to Comment
Yeah, about that. The rumor texts are the actual "meat". This Kaboo & Co. npc entry is just the bones. I first did the rumors off-the-cuff, then added this submission the next day. Kaboo is actually named after my friend, drumroll...Kabu (he's nosy). I guess this troika could have had better names though :) Wait! hold the phone Scras! I just recalled a certain archmage named "RICHBUTBUSY"!! from the Auchinduin Mine :)
Thanks to MoonHunter for all his (still ongoing) technical help and support! The rumor links now have titles! Go to Comment
I actually had to read this twice for some reason. After the second reading I realized I loved it! 'an edge' for the city guard is rare. Obviously helps curb crime (thats not why the city is named 'cerb' is it?) :)
one nagging thought. It seems that there are no issues with the amount of these items that can be created...correct? mass production so to speak.
Is there anything stopping Cerb from farming these out to any city that orders a shipment? I mean which town wouldn't want these right? So a cottage industry forms perhaps. Does Cerb become the most prosperous town in all the land? :) Am I making sense, or did I miss something?
these are not criticisms, just thoughts that come to mind.
overall great idea!!!! I have a pc, that refuses to 'check' his weapon at any city-gate regardless of the consequences. This weekend he will be going to Cerb. Thanks! Go to Comment
I see. Actually I wont be doing that in 'my world' either. I just wanted your thoughts on mass-production. I understand re: the seal being special, was wondering if more seals could be made (and how easily). You have now answered that question however.
In fact your one sentence..."In my world, magic items are no longer being created so there is a hunt for items of magic of any kind" is an AWESOME idea, in and of itself. I will be shamelessly stealing it! (just for my campaign world). No copyrights in place for borrowing that for a game session right? :) Go to Comment
could use some more detailed explanation. like why cant magic be cast while its unsheathed, whats the seal look like, how did the blade get to be this way, who made the first one, etc...The bit about the smith unlocking full potential is kind of interesting-could use a little more splainin'
interesting scenario on top of being a 'location'. Great details- overbuilt buildings, mining taboos, cast of characters. I like how you structure your subs, this being a perfect example. Will be reading clathrate next. I wont have a HoH vote tomorrow, unlike Cheka, but would use it if I did. Go to Comment
I knew you would ask that :) I'll try. But quite sure I saw a lesser version. Kinda like a Scroll Golem jr.
the thing is I dont think I commented, so cant check that way. And for some reason I dont think it had golem or scroll in the title, so I cant find it that way either. But since I'm a bit obsesive compulsive I'll gve it a shot anyway. Go to Comment
