You seem to be confused NCN. Every person here, bar none, thinks the idea is the most important thing. Period. This school of thought was formed long ago. In fact, I think MoonHunter may have formed it originally. :-)
On top of the "idea" its sometimes nice to have some cool fluff, or prose, or funky presentation, or delicious minutae or what have you. That is why we have "Idea Seeds" and "Stubs", and "Scrolls" and "Forums" as well as "Submissions", so our "idea-makers" can choose their milieu. Other times a great idea is a great idea, and stands lovely on its own without any furbishings. Vague, succinct ideas jotted down to percolate people's imaginations are great! No one has any issues with this approach. And at the same time, (and NOT at the expense of a simple, clear, succinct idea), you can have long rambling ideas with lots of details and minutae. Those are fun too. There is no wrong approach. It is all relative.
My humble suggestion would be, dont worry about what submissions "should" be. Just jump in and enjoy them, and share a few ideas of your own as well with us!
Also, you don't need to sign your posts "NCN". We see that you are NCN by looking at your name to the left of your comment. :-) Go to Comment
Arune Spheres are hollow, blue reflective metallic spheres about 25 cm/ 10" in diameter (though some are larger). They are made of a thickish glass mirrored on the inside. When magical energies are flowed through the sphere, it produces a haunting tone, which can be varied by the type, intensity, and harmonics of energies passed through it. (It sounds like an electronic organ.) If multiple energy flows are generated, multiple sounds can be generated, some of which sound like mundane instruments. Masters of The Craft can replicate almost any sound in their memory with one. Though originally used as a training tools for those with The Power, it has been adapted to be a musical instrument. All it takes is someone with patience, medative training, and a touch of the Power, to use it. (Thus becoming the favorite instrument of anyone who was tested to the first level of the Craft, but failed to advance).
