well conceived, Chaos! intriguing reading. Wish I had a better understanding of your world, to put it all in perspective. I guess I can start with the links. Go to Comment
Kaboo, Gladdys, and their Dim-Witted Nephew
NPCs  (Minor)   (Knowledge/Lore)
Murometz's comment on 2006-03-04 04:49 PM
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 LOVE LABORS OF LOVE!! and taken as a whole with every link included this is breathtaking!

I like the history and the hierarchy...Details are key, and this has details aplenty! It also has a grim feel!

My favorite is Hillbreaker.

Maybe some plot hooks on how to interact with the Clan, but thats just nitpicking.

I also have a fetish for names..and these all fit perfectly. Oh and Annealing is great!

Terrific! Go to Comment

Blade Hands
Items  (Equipment Listing)   (Magical)
Murometz's comment on 2006-03-02 02:59 PM
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

Murometz's comment on 2006-03-02 03:53 PM
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

Murometz's comment on 2006-03-01 08:38 PM
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'

I'll hold off vote for now. Go to Comment

Richbutbusy? :)

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

Murometz's comment on 2006-02-28 05:13 PM
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

Murometz's comment on 2012-03-10 12:57 PM


I like these lines...It has no real physical attacks, being made from paper and books it is rather frail and brittle. But what it does have is more powerful than any sword or axe it could wield. Every magical scroll and tome within its body is its weapon.



I've always liked this golem. And you can branch out a lot of different ways with it too. Can they *learn* from tomes, besides the spells, for example? Can they acquire knowledge this way as well perhaps? Becoming Idiot Savants of sorts?

Broom of the Dai Kiri
Items  (Home/ Personal)   (Combat)
Murometz's comment on 2006-02-28 11:40 AM
If the 'purses' didn't exist i'd give this a 5, but since they do, I cant help but think of them as I read this.


I'm picturing a 13th-15th century town in china. The emperor's thugs, are parading through the streets and sneering at the frail, fearful looking villagers. A few stop at an inn to pester the patrons, and get some free grub. Two or three inconspicuous workers(?) are sweeping the floors..."You there! some food and drink quickly, or I'll shove that broom up your #%&"

The sweepers innocently approach the soldiers....

Is there a "Broom Master" (or "The Sweeper"), a secretive teacher of the deadly fighting style, that the Dai-Kiri revere? Go to Comment
