Quite brutal. It paints a pretty strong picture of the overall culture. I imagine a particularly paranoid ruler might get a little overzealous in defining what makes a criminal in order to be sure enough deaths occur. I wonder if these executions actually make a difference? The first success against the dragon was done through subterfuge but perhaps these executions have already been accounted for.

This would be excellent cover for someone trying to raise a demon through violent sacrifice.

Count me among those intrigued. The core idea grabbed my attention right away. There are a lot of ways this can be developed and I am particularly fond of subs that get my wheels turning.



The second-to-last paragraph just confused me, though (not that that's a difficult task) and would probably be better replaced with more concrete examples added as idea scrolls.

Let's see: a few thousand highly religious followers of the "one true god" reaffirming their faith, cross paths with a party of arrogant, irreverrent adventurers. Hmm, there couldn't possibly be a plot point to be found, could there? :P

While I agree with the basic sentiment that rape is over used in character motivation for fantasy stories (though it has become cliche enough that this is less the case than it used to be, thankfully), I don't think that applies here. If the farmer had given up farming, studied for years with a legendary yet reclusive warrior, and then tracked down and murdered the perpetrators, then I would be with you. I think this tale, as told, paints an effective picture of how the long-suffering and pious deal with the cruelty of man. Go to Comment

I like the history; that sets it apart from and makes it unique.

Most excellent. My only complaint is that it was so short. The side notes do well at fleshing out the description. Go to Comment

Updating my vote because of the new material.



The demon aspect adds another dimension and rounds it out nicely. Beware of deals with extraplanar beings!

David Branch, Cult Leader

MysticMoon's comment on 2012-03-01 04:54 PM
I like the character (although I first misread the title as Branch Davidians.) Good, mostly 3 dimensional, and definitely usable as a villain or uncertain ally. Overall an improvement.

I dislike the stats mixed in with the meat of the sub. Personally (for whatever that's worth) I'd prefer them added as an idea at the end. I haven't looked at GURPS in years so the stats mean nothing to me. Go to Comment

Very insidious.



I'd put it in the hands of a patron known and trusted by the players. Watch them try to figure out what's happening and how to fix it. In the course of figuring things out, they'd end up in some very sticky situations, such as when their patron decides that sacrificing them to a rival is the "easiest" way out of a longer conflict or when notifying them about some danger becomes too much work.

A great breakdown of considerations for creating/using arcologies.



It seems like the idea of a carnery (mass production of vat grown meat) would fit right in with the green towers.

It seems that a lack of willpower would start a vicious cycle. Failing once might give the sovereign more trepidation the second time around, making it easier to fail. And so on. The reputation of the king would suffer publicly. I doubt such a ruler would last long on the throne with the strong-willed and power hungry about.



Of course, the reverse might also be true. A strong king, able to intimidate all law breakers would be perceived as unbreakable of spirit.

30 Gods of Tirexia
Systems  (Divine/ Spirit)   (General)
MysticMoon's comment on 2011-11-30 08:21 AM
Thanks for the good feedback, Echo. It helps to know what works and what doesn't.

I probably didn't make this clear enough in the summary, but these are only a small sampling of all the gods of Tirexia, so most of the pantheons (panthea?) are incomplete. To do the whole list would probably require a "101 Gods" submission (*shudders*). I did this mostly as a first attempt at a 30, and I can see how difficult it is to come up with 30 completely fresh ideas. So, I used some of the "template" gods to paint a picture about the culture rather than try to be completely original. (I swear I was being creative and not just lazy. Now stop looking at me like that....)

I recognize that I could have fleshed out some of the gods better and I had all kinds of grandiose plans to do so. Priesthoods, popular myth stories, etc. But this sub sat on my machine untouched for a few months, so I figured I'd throw it up here and move on. (BTW, To-Kah was my take on the Sumerian Ninhursag/Ka, who didn't appear to do much outside of making baby gods with the sky god An; at least as far as I could find.) Go to Comment
