Welcome! This is a good first sub. I like that there are multiple points along her history where she could be brought into a game: early on as a villain (perhaps even one who causes grief to the PCs or those they care about; would they be willing to forgive her?), as the protector of the forest, during the war (many possibilities there), and during her later rule.

I think this is absolutely fantastic. I love the concept of flying ships. The details are amazing and well thought out. It took me a few days to work my way through it, but it was worth the effort. Go to Comment

As someone who has never played Doom, this is awesome. I love the Cosmic Era twists. Definitely some critters to avoid :) Go to Comment

Think of a rotating bubble on the top (dorsal) and bottom (ventral) surfaces of the cough drop that lets the pilot and gunner face any direction. "Top" and "bottom" can be ambiguous terms in certain contexts (like space or biology) and so dorsal (think dorsal fin, as in the fin on a shark's back) and ventral are used to be more specific.

The intro is great and it's certainly useful as-is. It's also true that I wish there was more backstory and general flavor. Go to Comment

I know I'm risking my geek cred here, but I've never actually played Doom. I can kind of guess that the demons look like demons, but beyond that the names mean very little to me. A little more detail on that front would have been beneficial for me.


While I like the factions idea, there's too much danger of the players getting bored before the action takes place. It feels like there could be a whole nother dimension (har har) to this. Not saying I know what that could be, just that I think there should :P


(Having said all that, I wish I'd been able to see this movie instead of the ghastly failure that was Event Horizon.)


There are some really cool pieces in this, such as the lightning charging the device.


I love the idea of taking the pirate attack up a notch by throwing in the demons. If done right, you could make the pirates just this side of too tough for the PCs. And once they think they can get a hand on the situation, Bam! Throw some nasty demons their way and make them really sweat it out.


The various scenarios are good, although as Mourn pointed out you can only second guess your players so much. Players can sometimes be really good at coming up with something completely random that borks up your plans.

My apologies about the confusion; I was having difficulty picking the category. As far as I could tell, there really isn't anything for items that matched religious relic.

Because of its size the quill can't use regular ink. It would need something more viscous that wouldn't simply pour out. Also, because it is unwieldy while requiring precise control it would be very difficult to use. Imagine a huge iron pen that will dump all of its ink if it does more than barely touch the paper.

I believe that the 8-in-8 challenge is forcing me to be as clear as I can with minimal verbiage. Posting something every day means that I don't have the luxury of taking a few days to work in every possible detail. I'm glad to know that this tactic is working. I do plan on tackling more involved subs later on, though. Hopefully they won't ramble :) Go to Comment

Oh, you want to know what it does.

I guess I didn't explicitly say this, but it is the way (or is merely believed to be the way, depending) in which Ahkti communicates the divine word. Someone who is worthy would be able to write scripture as though Ahkti himself wrote it. (Or, if there is no real magic, someone could say whatever they wanted and claim Ahkti wrote it.). That is what is meant by "The Quill is the divine instrument through which Ahkti communicates His will to the faithful." It is why the plot hook about the Quill missing for a time could cause the claim of new scripture being available to be taken seriously. Go to Comment

The Riddle of the Seal


That the seal may be split in twain is a legend known to a relative few. It has been said that splitting the seal will split the world. Some believe it to be a literal sundering of the world while others believe it would mirror a division of the faith. Others have conjectured that the two halves represent the division between this world and the world of spirit; they hypothesize that a split of the Seal would cause a rift between those two realities and bring chaos to the world.


The Seal itself appears to be rather simple in nature when viewed from afar. When one attempts to follow the details it appears complex. The simple spiral is actually made up of a number of thicker lines intersected by a number of smaller ones. Hagartha used it as a focus for spiritual meditation and believed that he came to know something of the nature of Ahkti by pondering these lines.


Following the lines with ones fingers reveals that the lines are not solidly connected but are rather pieces of wire threaded around each other. Pressure on various parts causes other parts to shift. To Hagartha, this symbolized the interconnectedness of all. Accordin to Hagartha's teachings, this shows how we cannot affect the smallest thing in life without touching a web larger than ourselves. He used this as the basis for a philosophy of peace and respect toward others.


The two halves are connected by a bisecting line which is made up of a great multitude of these variously sized threads. Putting pressure on a point of one half of the Seal will cause a shift in the threads of this bisecting line which will then be reflected in a change in the other half of the Seal.


The legend of the puzzle is this: if the bearer of the Seal were to place pressure upon an intricate series of points on the Seal, in a specific order with specific differences in pressure, the lines in the middle would slowly unwind and cause the Seal to split into two mirrored halves.


Most bearers of the Seal have been vehemently opposed to solving the puzzle, feeling it would undo the divine power of Ahkti. A few have tried, however, but with no luck. In the modern age it is often a source of speculation, especially in the argument between mechanical and animistic world views.
