A simple start for a new dungeon

or to phrase that another way...there are sure a lot of dungeons without enough history, background, proper npcs or common sense, but this here, is the history, background, npcs and common sense, minus the dungeon!!



Clever, stork. :)

*the* Temujin? :) Cool. There's a "D" in the title you might want to slice off. So, is this an opening chapter type of thing? Will the Crunalan Empire tale reflect the Song/Yuan Empire time frame approximately?

I'd maybe change this line..."“Watch out for each other.” With that he made an abrupt departure, leaving the three youths dumbfounded and staring at each other."

The "each other" twice sounds a bit awkward. Go to Comment

Interesting. The title made me think it would delve into fey, formorians, and that type of stuff. Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2014-11-25 12:29 PM


I love swamps! I think this is a perfect "old school" entry actually! Excellent primer, hitting most of the pertinent points! I cant help but add...since its a 101 on swamps and all...it would have been great if you included a little extra toward the beginning with a little info on the slight differences between...swamp, bog, marsh, and fen, with maybe an image of each. But that's just nitpicking. Great sub!

Is it very interesting? I think it's lame that you commented on Sil's subs, just to help her win the Quest. Go to Comment
Rats in the Basement

Murometz's comment on 2014-11-26 04:13 PM


Well, this is rather flawless and I've read it twice. Tucker Kobolds the were-rat version! The level of detail with every contingency accounted for, brings to mind published adventure material, naturally. Having no interest in Pathfinder stats, didn't take away anything from this, for me. I simply read those bits as..."Rat, trapper/ranger lvl2, fights with wakazashi, sneaking and wounding"..."Rat, 2nd lvl transmuter...Rat...ninja...etc..." ok, got it! Can adapt that to my game without issue.



Kudos to you. The commitment and effort involved in writing this shines through admirably!

Intriguing but slightly disjointed as far as presentation of the idea, as val and Scras allude to. But lots of interesting aspects to ponder. Love the name and tagline of the piece. Still and Limbo. Needs something more/else though. Go to Comment

Drow, Lolth, Beholders, immense powers...certainly reminiscent of old-schooly mega-villains.

I agree with val...i begin imagining the 'powered-up' PCs that can actually take this thing on and beat it. :)

I love it. Very heady and well thought out cosmos origin. You seem to have everything covered. Souls, life, alignments...

Particularly interesting to me are the automatons of Order and the Dragons of Chaos.

The question that comes to my mind is, how if at all, does this mythos affect your game world specifically? Do the characters have some overall sense of this understanding? Oblivious to it? Or somewhere in between. Just curious.

Nicely written. Welcome to the Citadel!! Go to Comment

It reminds me of the duality of Manichaeism and the beliefs of the Cathars a bit.



Particularly interesting to me are the automatons of Order and the Dragons of Chaos, and the Graces and Viles, as entities.

I never get tired of first-person narrative describing a world when done well. And this qualifies! Plus what val said re: leveling up. Geez!!



Collectors sound quite interesting too.

Incredibly useful to me!!! THANK YOU FOR THIS!!! :-D



Question, how subtly (or drastically) different would names be in say...late Ming/early Ching period, as compared to these modern day ones?

Let's take the Five Elders of folklore as an example...



Ji Sin, Ng Mui, Bak Mei (Pai Mei!!!!!!!!!!), Fung Dao Dak, Mui Hin



They do not seem radically different and they stem from 17th century stylings.
