Wow. You know ax, I didn't realize that I agree until I read your comment. It's true, the voice *doesn't* quite mature, does it? Still, I love this Spartan journal approach. Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2015-01-23 10:19 PM
Yeah, I love this sub so much! I have to echo Scras in that my immediate first thought was, this reads so retro! I love Rodchenko! This is just a fantastic pair brought to life! Everything really, the story, their personalities, the image of Rodchenko (I won't lie), even the format, is perfect. Is Illah supposed to be Ilya? If so, I'm hurt. I usually don't antagonize. :P

Rodchenko is the greatest natural swordsman in the world (somebody has to be). Go to Comment
7 Trains
Items  (Transports)   (Campaign Defining)
Murometz's comment on 2015-01-16 10:53 PM

Interesting set. #4 immediately instills thoughts of the Great Train Robbery and a session based on it. #5 screams Runaway Train with Voight and Roberts. #3 and #1 are nice and self explanatory. #6 nice touch. I don't think #7 is needed. Just filler words. We know what a train is for :)

#8? A rare collectible toy train (Lionel?) worth a small fortune!

I never thought I'd live to see the day this sentence appeared in print...

This one really piques my imagination, cruc. Love it. Creepy and, half-gods, orgies, cults, and the names!! A sense of the primeval/primordial mixed with an almost Renaissance feel. Would love to see the 30 paintings written up!

Fun! space-faring polar bear mercenaries. Somehow it makes sense. Who is their leader? Enemies of note? Go to Comment

Blood bladder is interesting too, and makes me think of...what else? Four-chambered hearts? Double stomachs? Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2014-12-17 04:09 PM

Ah right. When I say "four-chambered" I mean "different number of chambers, not four" haha

The double stomach came from watching animal programs last night, where the langurs of Cambodia have an extra stomach full of fancy bacteria that help them break down the cellulose of leaves. Anyway, was basically contemplating Dwarven adaptations to the underground. How about this? An fish-like organ that regulates pressure/oxygen/something.. :P

27/30 Bad Things about Treasure
Articles  (Humor/ Editorial)   (Gaming - In General)
Murometz's comment on 2014-12-17 03:26 PM

Nice job here, always fun to come up with ways to thwart PCs, even after they have found the "great treasure"! The links are nice, though I think if the same (your favorite) links are used for any new idea over and over again (Mathom, etc) it take a bit away from the piece.

A simple start for a new dungeon

Murometz's comment on 2015-01-22 12:41 AM

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 Return of the White Deer- Prologue
Articles  (Fiction)   (Gaming - Genre)
Murometz's comment on 2014-12-13 08:11 PM

*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

Swamps 101
Articles  (Regional)   (Swamp)
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 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!
