F-111 Aardvark episode

Selan, the Travellers
Society/ Organizations  (Travelers)   (Trans World)
Scrasamax's comment on 2017-02-20 08:31 PM
Why should we welcome the Selan, they are crows before the storm.

I like the concept, and I can see two general reactions to the Selan, one group turning them away, treating them like the heralds of the collective, and the other hunting them down for the information they have, or to use them to fight the Borg Go to Comment
Billy Feldsham

Scrasamax's comment on 2017-02-20 08:40 PM
I would call him the Nose, and I could see him in something as mundane as a CSI/forensics based crime game, but would really enjoy running him in something like a Dick Tracy type game, or a pulp adventure game.

I really liked the last hook, with sniffing out something that shouldn't be. Vampires, shapeshifters, aliens, etc.

I read some book somewhere, where the main character, which I am pretty sure was a dinosaur, demonstrated exceptional sense of smell, and sorting through the various aspects of scent were no more offensive than our visual inputs as a sight based mammal.

There was also Willard, with Elijah Wood talking to his dog, Willard, and Willard told Elijah that the eyes weren't the windows to the soul, the arse was. One whiff and he could tell anything he needed to know about anyone Go to Comment

I am truly impressed as the vagaries of a balkan nation, Parna, are covered through the story of a sandwich, turning what would be a block infodump into something I deeply enjoyed reading.

As I read this, it was Ser Jorah Mormont from GoT narrating. Go to Comment

No joke to get, loved Gadget when I was growing up, and it allowed me to integrate something I enjoy into the CE, as well as take some of the previous stuff I've written and link it together.

I enjoy the process of writing as much as the finished product. Go to Comment
The Five Metal Dragons
Society/ Organizations  (Mercantile)   (Trans World)
Scrasamax's comment on 2017-02-12 07:52 PM
Individually, the Five Metal Dragons are not top tier AISCs, so their construction did little to influence mainframe design. Their defection from the ACPS did make other nations look at the level of power and autonomy that their machines operated under. The other AISCs certainly took notice and it opened a new level of dialog between them and their human peers. The fact that the metal dragons defected showed the level of animosity between the ACPS and the synthetic intelligences it created, and it was considered to be more productive and beneficial to improve relations between the two groups rather than create and place arbitrary limitations on the AISCs.

Good question. Go to Comment

30 Sceptres

Scrasamax's comment on 2017-02-11 06:52 AM
Cheka, I am in agreement with Roack. i am pleased to see you world building with your lists, and linking to other submissions within the citadel.

I will say that the Sun Scepter seems to be the only scepter on the list that really jumps out at me, since it has the ability to just destroyed the world, literally. Way overpowered. This would be a legendary relic somewhere with unstable weather or bad seasons like Game of Thrones Westeros Go to Comment
Phantom Warriors of The Stolen World
Society/ Organizations  (Combative)   (World Wide)
Scrasamax's comment on 2017-02-11 06:43 AM
I like this submission, and I also don't like it.

I think that the phantom warriors are incredibly powerful, and I want to play one. I would also want to play one in a highly destructive fashion, demonstrating all the ways that a nefarious person could abuse such a power. Phasing into homes, stealing material goods, carrying out impossible assassinations (that regular strength, but 1/10th the weight) and so forth. I would greatly enjoy this. As a DM I think it could be a nightmare as there are very few controls on the phantom warriors, other than the limitations on how long they can manifest.

I can see magi and lawful good phantom warriors working together trying to keep everything in some semblance of balance. Go to Comment

A good application of the use of an outside source for gaming purposes, ala the Magic Cards, and it does give the Stolen World a deliberately jumbled and chaotic feel. It sounds like a place I would never ever actually want to visit, but is a great setting for stories and games. I like the effective metagame, with the ley lines being hexgrid, and encounters being magic cards. Go to Comment
Scrasamax's comment on 2017-02-09 03:12 PM
If you are left struggling for ideas, there are books that are simply the various sets thus far released presented in print form. This can be useful for collectors looking to complete their collections, but it is also useful for things like needing a random monster, plot hook, or whatnot, and then opening to a random page and jabbing a finger blindly to see what it lands on.

30 or more Inferior Swords
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Combat)
Scrasamax's comment on 2017-02-09 03:18 PM
Feels a bit rushed, but I could see littering loot piles with these swords, or using them to arm bandits, mongrel militias, and others who were more interested in the number of weapons they could get and not so much the quality. With some being damaged, these aren't entirely all junk. It is the sort of stuff that could easily be found in a horde or tomb, or a dungeon that's been delved before but not defeated. Go to Comment

Enjoyable read, some of these villages are very delightfully peculiar and would make great side detours in an epic campaign. Go to Comment

Some nice swords in here, some are just filler. Either way an interesting read. It has inspired me as to the theme of my first 7 themed weapons, and its going to lead off with one of the swords listed here. Go to Comment
