Non-Euclidean Architecture: Part 1

Silveressa's comment on 2012-06-10 03:29 AM
A very thought provoking sub, and has enough solid math to be easily understandable as well by most of us scientific/tech geek types.

The only down side I can see is trying to explain the nuances of this article to a non science gamer in a way that doesn't take most of an evening and can be readily remembered several sessions down the road. (I.E lay-mans terms)

Then again there's some things you just can't put into lay-mans terms any plainer then this article does, and for those of us with a desire to use non-euclidean structures in our games, the upside is we (and the majority of our players) likely already have the requisite intellect to comprehend and make good use of the article as written.

Thought provoking and a well deserved 5.0!

A fun class of mage, and an excellent NPC companion to toss in a party of spell slingers that won't over power the rest of the group.

Well written and a good wellspring of ideas for Gm's that want to keep an aging/dying PC alive just a little longer.


On a side note the reference to Death playing chess reminded me of this favorite little comic:

Well put, and good guidelines for fictional writing, not sure how much of it applies when writing for the citadel however, out side of NPC's or fiction stories anyway. (A lot of citadel subs are about places, or technology, or other plot pieces rather then people)

It is solid advice in the creation of story arcs and campaign ideas for ones games however, and can help make a average campaign far more memorable/enjoyable by everyone involved. Go to Comment

This mostly: http://strolen.com/viewing/Some_Guidelines_For_Adventure_Creation_and_GMing


(All of these tips can be readily applied to writing as well.)


Also to learn from your failures and keep trying new things. Sometimes a new technique can be a smashing success or dismal failure, but unless you try new approaches to the writing and presentation you'll never know what works for you and what doesn't.


Try a new style, even if it's something you don;t particular care for or feel comfortable with, the learning experience from trying it out will often off set any shortcomings form the end result itself.

A nice expansion on the Unummodo sub, I also especially like the ideas Forganthus suggested, I think they would enhance the sub nice and make an even more enjoyable piece.

If you do expand/update this, please send a PM and let me know so I can come back here and re-read the new version/update my vote. :) Go to Comment

Not just them Axle, you'll find every challenged sub is by a different author, by male and female names, many from the same website. (unlikely someone would register on the same site under multiple names.) Go to Comment

There's a few dead tree versions of games that are insanely priced no matter someones income level as well. For example Game of Thrones Deluxe Limited Edition rpg goes for anywhere from $400-$960 for a single 400 some odd page book. o.O At those kinds of prices finding it in electronic format in the free price range is the only realistic option for the majority of people.

Good advice, especially for those on a budget, or looking to expand their gaming collection without taking out a small loan.

On a side note, another great low cost resource is to acquire books on .pdf. From legitimate sources like drivethrurpg.com you can usually get most books in electronic format for 1/2 to 1/4 the cost of dead tree version.

Less official sources, such as 4shared, rapidshare, filehosting, etc.. as well as torrents can help you expend your .pdf inventory even further for virtually nothing more then the time to download the files and the storage space on your PC. (Such un-offical sources are also great places to find out of print, or otherwise impossible to find gaming books that go for hundreds of dollars from retailers.) Go to Comment

Cute and memorable, reminds me a bit of one of my earliest subs ( http://strolen.com/viewing/Things_Are_Not_Always_As_They_Seem ) in the over all theme, and made my otherwise dreary morning much less so.

For a one shot alien invasion adventure this would make for an amusing aside cut scene to play on the characters, and raising the question of how they would treat the strippers dressed in cat suits and kids in costumes?

A useful intro for beginners; I would enjoy seeing the sub enhanced with a few helpful bits, such as a laundry lists of common game terms, (OCC, IC, NPC, etc.).perhaps covering online die rollers and a bit about playing nice with others in regards to inter party conflict, spotlight stealing, so forth.

Still, nicely done, and a good place to point those new to forum gaming. Go to Comment
