Its an interesting idea, but perhaps a bit underdeveloped. I cant help but feel that it could be so much more... Go to Comment

Lets say the original needed some....improvement? From mediocre to top-quality, not bad! Go to Comment
The Fatal Sword
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Combat)
Ouroboros's comment on 2008-10-05 04:42 AM
Nah, vorpal swords are only fun in Neverwinter nights...

But I do love this paragraph:

"What this means, essentially, is that the blade is made so thoroughly that a part of the essence of a sword, the primordial pre-standing cosmic idea of a sword, is imparted as an echo into the sword. Thus, the Fatal Sword is the closest that nearly any sword can come to being the ideal killing tool."

Masterful! Go to Comment

I believe you could use this (with some minor adjustments) in RPGs like Shadowrun or CoC. That would probably be pretty cool. Go to Comment

I think this may also spark improvements on the original posts, too...there´s nothing as good as feedback to round things off a bit. Good job! Go to Comment

Hey, I´m glad it worked out - even though the poor sods got themselves killed. I´d be happy to recieve suggestions as to what could be done differently to provide a more RPG-friendly environment. /David Go to Comment
Tombstone Brook

Ouroboros's comment on 2007-12-12 09:30 AM
This definitely has potential, but it needs work, and a lot of it.

I would start with an extensive description of the area, various places/graves/items of special interest and perhaps even a map.

We also need a history of the place, along with some nice "twist" to make it interesting. Theories are fine, but not standing alone.

Something that leaps to mind is that this site can appear near some small village after a flash-flood, bringing PCs in for loot or to investigate (maybe even as archeologists).

If nothing else, add a twist - this area is much too good an idea to waste.

The Cruor Adficio Poxviridae Macrovirus
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)
Ouroboros's comment on 2007-12-10 02:35 AM
First some nit-picking: a retrovirus starts out as RNA, which are reverse-transcribed into DNA (by the originally named reverse transcriptase enzyme), and that DNA-fragment is integrated into the host genome. It´s not really important, since it doesnt detract from the post. Which is EXCELLENT! Love these "scientific" ones - oh, and the general´s speech at the end is a real nice touch. Good work! 5/5 and a HoH Go to Comment

Its my pleasure, D. I believe these buggers were called RNAvirus back in the olden days when I was in school. As a side note, there´s something that´s called an arbovirus that is spread through bites....That might be of interest too, don´t you think? All in all, a very good post! /David Go to Comment

Ouroboros's comment on 2007-12-10 02:25 AM
Val: I have this notion that the soul must be kept away from the Deader, otherwise it will turn into a real, bloodthirsty undead. I think the Deaders are more like golems than zombies, the makers just make use of a thing with all the right joints and so on, which would otherwise be expensive to make.... Go to Comment

This is more of a frame work and flavour text for a series of subs that´ll flesh out the area (I hope). /D. Go to Comment

OK, ladies and gentlemen, I´ve added a map to this sub as well.
Sadly, it has to be a linked image, since our gallery ain´t accepting uploads at the moment.
As soon as it works again, I´ll put the map up as a nice thumbnail.
Hope you´ll like it!

Ouroboros's comment on 2007-12-09 06:21 PM
Reminds me of "Spiral Jacobs" from Iron Council... I like ragged characters that are not what they seem, and this one a good example of that. I love the idea of hidden messages in his street art, too. I would probably have made him a raving psychotic and/or a junkie, but he´s just fine as he is. Definitely useable! Good job (as usual)!

Let me tell you, it was pretty therapeutic to get this one out there.

I´ve had some of these people in my head for ten years or more. The image of a mud-smeared warrior using a turtle-shell for a shield has, for some reason, been with me since the early 90´s. I´ve always wanted to do something with it, and now I have...:-)

Thanks for some nice comments and feedback, guys. Appreciate it! /David Go to Comment
