The Whips of Torturous Retribution
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Cursed)
Scrasamax's comment on 2018-01-21 06:54 AM
The concept of the weapon that wounds the wielder is generally an interesting one, and in this case, a highly suspect one.

I want to know the morality/alignment of these whips, because it says that if the victim of the whipping is being unjustly punished, then their assailant is likewise scourged.

If a slave attempts to flee, and is captured and returned for a judicious lashing to keep the rest of the slaves in line, will the whip respond?

Is his slavery unjust?
Is the whip indifferent to his status, and by breaking the law and attempting to escape, are his lashes earned? Go to Comment
?The Sword of the Innocent Child
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Scrasamax's comment on 2018-01-17 09:58 AM
I like the mythic feel of this item, and that the sword and armor are sealed away somewhere in a grand tomb. This could easily be a local myth or legend, one that many people might scoff at, a nigh unbeatable child soldier with a massive limb severing sword. This is also a very good variation of the peasant hero story, I heartily approve.

There were a few things I had issue with, and they are minor.

I assume you know that there is a real place called Barbados, an island in the Caribbean.

Why wasn't the blacksmith making these uber weapons for everyone? (I can easily answer this myself with divine inspiration, or that the smith was actually a quasi-sympathetic diety.

Young boys would still have been used in the army as messengers and runners, or as personal aids to other men who could use them, leader types.

Otherwise, fantastic effort and thank you Go to Comment

They are diet neutered enuch wizards, they cannot create their own magic. Instead they are reliant on actual wizards and sorcerers to create spells, and they dont have the old school ciphered wizard's grimoires but rather magic text books.

The crux of the storytelling and gaming would center around trying to survive in the realm of a mad solar god, and how the changing sun would affect human interactions. It would very likely be Mad Max like as a single bout of madness through the growing season could destroy crops and forests with great ease, making survival difficult at best. Things like war, and cities become questionable when an army in the field can be slaughtered by a green sunrise Go to Comment
7 Things about Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Scrasamax's comment on 2018-01-04 08:37 AM
I would venture to guess that the Resistance/Rebels want legitimacy and state recognition, and today suicide attacks aren't heroic or brave but are instead the calling card of terrorists and religious extremists.

I'm sure hyperdriving a Mon Cal cruiser through the Death Star would have done damage, it would have reduced the Rebels to insurgents and terrorists.

The A-wing taking out the Executor class in RotJ was accidental success while Holdo's run was desperate, and the rest thing she could do with the Raddus to save rebel lives. Go to Comment

Yes, you could do all of those things, but that would take Star Wars out of being Space Opera/Space Fantasy and move it into the realm of Military fiction. Military fiction doesn't have room for X-wings, Jedi knights, the Force, or light sabers.

Death Star? We just need a sufficiently large hyperspace capable penetrator and we can blow a hole through your planet, sort of like the Sun Crusher plotline, but way less cinematic and much more brutal and pragmatic.

Much less fun, much less adventure Go to Comment

Drunk Writers Guild Footnote and Author's note - being shoved in a Bioforge is PAINFULL!

The machine doesn't care if it hurts, and it is brute force reimagining and reorganizing your biomass.

The Bioforge is a shiny chrome and crystal version of a bone stitcher Go to Comment

The item itself is just kind of there, but the concept of a sculptor using his art to spy on his wealthy and noble patrons is fantastic. It could even be used as a Xanatos Gambit, where the statue is made, with the intent of being stolen, so that the commissioner could easily spy on those who stole it, through such a magic item.

Well done. Go to Comment

Solid idea. I like it, and I like the variety of reasons it was made being given.

I would add that if someone knows that another person is wearing one of these rings, and they have the proper mental discipline, they can cheat the mind skimming power of the ring. A high level thief or assassin would certainly have the opportunity to resist this, or spoof it, depending on their skill. If they are unsuspecting, then they are no better prepared to resist.

The Saucerer

       By: MysticMoon

A rare branch of the arcane masters, encountered only among the deepest hill folk or ramshackle cabins, the Saucerer takes his power directly from the consumption of cheap liquor. Only the strongest, rankest, most nauseating of homebrewed alcohol will do, where it is instantly converted into mana available to the caster. Without a minimum level of inebriation, the Saucerer will be unable to cast any spells, as focus inhibits his spellcasting abilities.
