Good read! Great example of insanity's internal dialogue. Madness, thy name is this guy.

I echo axle in loving the voice and underpinnings. I'm also thick-headed apparently. I'm trying to understand what the voice's agenda is exactly...he's "applying" to an uber-criminal organization? Go to Comment

I actually really like this one. Quirky cloak, and can lead to all kinds of plot twists, unwanted surprises and comedy-of-errors type scenarios. Go to Comment
Cloak of the Thieving Hands
Items  (Clothes)   (Villanous)
Murometz's comment on 2016-04-15 02:46 PM

"What other magical vestments might we pair this with?"

1. Hat of Sudden Items

Whenever the wearer tips the hat in greeting or salute, out pops whichever last item the cloak's thieving hands stole and "pocketed", usually leading to embarrassment or worse, for the wearer.

2. Boots of the Getaway

two additional shadowy boots emerge from this footwear, whenever the cloak's hands steal something. These phantom boots kick the shins of the cloak's latest victim, as hard as possible.

Sorry, I'm just having fun with this :D

The Peristeronic Ring

Murometz's comment on 2016-04-11 04:23 PM
Other uses...

1. Ever wanted to pass for a statue? Stand perfectly still and have some pigeons roost on you. Don't flinch if they poop on you.

2. Since it could be *any* species of pigeon, how about giant pigeons? Like the ones from Korgoth of Barbaria :P

Murometz's comment on 2016-04-08 02:39 PM
I HATE this! Get it? :p

The name looked familiar, then I remembered Brin!

A truly primal deity with a very visceral vibe. Could be difficult to pull off for a PC, but fun to try. It does need something else as you mention, but I can't come up with anything off the top of my head. Good work. Go to Comment

cosmically horrifying location and great prose! The type of place an old jaded individual would voluntarily seek out toward the end of his life, because you know, he's done everything else. Now to just stare out into the void and contemplate...and die. Go to Comment
Ring of Subtle Injury
Items  (Jewelry)   (Cursed)
Murometz's comment on 2016-04-04 12:56 PM
Welcome aboard!

I like it. The ring's powers are creepy and disturbing. Good additions based on suggestions. I really like the detail that the wounds and bruises can be attributed to falls and bumping into objects, by those who don't realize what is actually happening.

Finally, can you picture someone that has worn the ring a LONG time? Colored bruises,festering cuts, pus-dripping wounds, unhealed scars...head to toe. Tragic visual! Go to Comment

Robots for luddites! I approve. Also can't help but think that they fill the mongrelman role in the CE. Lame sauce, sure, but someday they will rise up! Go to Comment

Mageek, just want to say, you make me want to leave work, grab paper, pencils, and dice and GAME the day away!! Really enjoyable old-school feel. The map is awesome!! My first instinct is to actually adapt this to Tekumel! Love the detail of the walls healing over time and being immune to transmutation spells. Go to Comment

7 Things About Food in the Cosmic Era
Articles  (Setting Building)   (Gaming - Genre)
Murometz's comment on 2016-02-22 11:15 PM

Forgot to mention "virtual" food freaks me out. Is it *possible* that humans evolve in a sort of reverse psychosomatic way and come to accept the nothingness while *not* physically starving to death?? We are what we eat sure, but how about the power of mind over matter and all that? Over a long period of time I mean. I guess my question is, let's say that the virtual food experience proliferates in the future. What would be virtual food's "natural" progression seven-eight hundred years later? Would it come to be obsolete? Or would lifeforms accept it as "real" eventually? Does this question makes sense?

This is horrible, revolting, depressing and gross. And a really fun article to read! Some great lines like..."it's good for environment and "ok" for you"..."a mold is sprayed with cellulose resin..."....."printed food"...."tumors!!!!". It just gets worse and worse lol

The mycoproteins one is interesting. That stuff is available in Europe. Called Quorn. Could also be expanded into other meat analogues; soy, tempeh, gluten, and all that jazz. And in-vitro meat of course reminds of carcinoproteins.

Fascinated by that Versace strawberry! The only thing here I wouldn't mind trying. :)

The Xan-Axe
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Murometz's comment on 2016-02-14 01:53 PM

It's one thing if the wielder is cowardly to begin with, like Xan was, but the beauty of the axe to me would be placing it in the hands of an already fearless, indomitable, celebrated warrior.

Suddenly, rumors begin spreading among his followers/soldiers. "Why is Cromrokk the Unconquerable Slayer whimpering again?"...

"Do we attack on the morrow, general?"

"Attack? Heavens no! That would be much too dangerous! And scary! We'd be slaughtered! Oh gods, I shudder at the thought!"

*Sigh* "Someone please find his blasted axe, before we're laughed off the battlefield!"

Oh Lordy. It's your world, can be whatever you say it is, and I see the impetus for this society based on your many CE posts, but...

This is not the future. Star Trek isn't an "example", it's one hollywood liberal's fantasy. The Native American analogy makes no sense.

Paint me a disgusting capitalist if you must, but no, this is not a natural evolution of the world economy.

Hmm, looking at my comment by light of day, this probably came across as harsh. Sorry, was just spouting away and "knee-jerk philosophizing" :-)
