A fascinating idea! And thanks, Siren, for explaining what the +/- thing was for for us newbies.

Like Michael said, a good reference article for those who play in an SF campaign. Reminds me of the Honor Harrington books.

This could be the culmination of a war. Enough detail to get the GM's creative juices flowing without it being enough to stifle said juices. Nicely done, Siren.

Nice sub and nice location. Maybe if enough of us pool our resources, we can rent a boat to take us there!

I wasn't here to read the sub the first time through but it seems to me that MoonHunter and Wulfhere's criticisms still haven't been followed up. The sub is still very hard to follow and has numerous spots where I got confused.

And I disagree with you, Strolen. I do blame Necromancer for the emotional response. Criticism is where it's at, after all. If you only wanted egoboo, only show it to your girlfriend or your mom. I doubt that very many of us are at the point where everything we write is perfect (except maybe for you, Captain Penguin :0 ), so we can all use criticism to make our writing better. I'm an author, and I still need criticism! I do agree that we all need to keep our emotions out of our criticisms, but everything except the "You are a terrible writer and all your stuff stinks!" criticisms are ultimately useful to the writer of the sub.

I also taught computer science in high school, and occasionally got to teach a Creative Writing class, and the "That's the way I want it to sound" response to criticisms is either egotistical, or lazy (if there is a difference). Writing is conveying thoughts and ideas, and if they are not getting through, you haven't been doing your job. End of rant. Go to Comment

Ramhir's comment on 2010-09-25 01:02 PM
A good remake of the ring of invisibility, Val. I like it. Perhaps the ring has tiny bits of the previous wearers consciousness and radiates a faint feeling of foreboding? Go to Comment

Ramhir's comment on 2010-09-23 04:03 PM
I like Grafton. He seems more like a sage to me. I plan to include him in my campaign.

Re. what MoonHunter said, this is the most important part of this site to me, pulling out all the books, potions, weapons, etc that are already detailed enough to use in the campaign so I can spend my time making up other things, which will then be put on Strolen's. Go to Comment

Ramhir's comment on 2010-09-25 01:10 PM
I liked #2 as well, Pariah. A magical storage battery. In my campaign, magic is castable as long as the user has mana to power it. However, mana regenerates slow enough that a magicuser can drain himself during the course of a battle. A mana-storage battery would be highly sought after by all mages. I like it. Go to Comment

Hey, guys! This scroll has been languishing for four years now! Doesn't anyone have any other people to add? This is a pretty small circus right now. Come on, folks, help turn this from MacNally's Carney into The Fantastic Barnum and Baileys World-Renown Circus!

Interesting. Would make a good villain for the paladins in my campaign. He isn't evil, exactly, but he isn't good either, and he is killing people. I like villains that are not really bad. Makes for some good roleplaying. I like it.

Good story, and good roleplaying hooks. I like him. The story is a little long (I prefer a shorter story because it is easier to fit into an ongoing campaign) but it has no world-shaking references that would have to be edited out to fit, so he would be a good npc with very little editing necessary to fit him in. All in all, a good sub. 3.5 / 5

What Has It Got in Its Pocketses?

Ramhir's comment on 2010-09-24 01:56 PM
Very good. I'm adding it to my world. PCs are always asking "What does it have in it's pocket/bag/pouch/backpack?" This will make it easy to find out, instead of the dreaded "Nothing much" that I've been using. Thanks, all. Go to Comment

Another thing for petroleum jelly. Many of us paint miniatures, and the lids often stick or the contents dry out. A bit of petroleum jelly on the threads will take care of both. Go to Comment

The road has never been more than an overgrown mud track, little travelled and little cared for, petered out to nothing more than a flattened earthen line, barely distinguishable from the rest of the landscape. The soil is dark and fecund and dark oaks stand like sentinels at the forest edge, their branches high and leafy. From them hang grizzly human bones, skulls and shiny precious stones. Who put these strange totems there? Are they warnings? Do the PCs dare to take the stones?
