David Branch, Cult Leader

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.

Update: This could use some polishing up but it's been sitting around for a few months, so I figured I'd just throw it out there. Go to Comment

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

Good catch on the double fox thing. Bad editing on my part.

Foxes are actually very good hunters; they are a very determined and clever animal. With Moravar I was going more for showing him as a clever hunter rather than being part of a pack mentality, as wolves do. Moravar looks favorably upon the lone hunter who can prove his intelligence rather than brute force when taking down prey. Go to Comment

A most excellent creation, with a nice backstory and interesting powers/drawbacks. Truly an item for only the bravest kind of hero!

Interesting piece of equipment. The history and drawbacks give it a real world feel.

I've had a fascination with powered armor since reading Heinlein's Starship Troopers, so I definitely enjoyed reading this. Go to Comment

Excellent. When it comes to this genre I think technical descriptions are a must. What is the point of such different technology/physics without them?

You can always edit the sub to include more detail or add them as idea scrolls at the end. I think the ideas you listed are intriguing and would be wonderful additions once fleshed out. Go to Comment
