The Thing that Sat Alone in the Dark

Silveressa's comment on 2014-05-29 04:20 PM

Interesting weapon, if grossly over powered for actual use as a PC owned weapon in most campaigns, it would be suitably nasty in the hands of a villain.

As a legendary weapon lost to the ages or the rumored weapon of a newly rising warlord it could serve to add nicely to the legend and myths of the setting, Or perhaps a campaign focused around a group of adventurers seeking to dispose of the axe once and for all, (Ala The One Ring) with numerous would be heroes and tyrants after the weapon for their own ends.

I am curious though if using the weapon in the rain or other wet environment would still invoke the wielder killing effect.

Edit: There is also the small logic fault of the weapon being immersed underwater in the lake bed so technically it should have automatically killed the man who grasped it for retrieval. :P (Yes I'm nitpicking in jest, but I'm sure we all know of at least one player that would be sure to challenge the bard/GMS tale about the weapon when it came to that bit.)

Sounds like the intro to a Supernatural adventure, could use a bit more fleshing out however. :) Go to Comment

A fun frame work for an adventure, and can be easily plugged into Shadowrun or other sci-fiish setting with minimal effort.

Edit: I would enjoy heqaring the specifics of the play through you did with the adventure and how it all turned out.

Another excellent submission, and the kind of inns that can make an evening session far more memorable than the rather bland taverns found in the published books.

Keep them coming, your submissions are a welcome addition to the Citadel! Go to Comment

A fun challenge, and one that can provide plenty of entertainment while the players are attempting to solve it, making it more engaging than more mundane puzzles that are mostly non reactive.

Excellent first submission, look forward to seeing more of your stuff! Go to Comment

A nice addition to the game setting, and a place I could see retired/discharged mecha pilots entering as a way of staying involved with the mecha lifestyle. Go to Comment

the comments date back to 2006 though, I think perhaps it was taken down into private draft and then put back up after an edit? Either way, glad to see this here! Go to Comment

Some amusing, some practical, some actually very useful for spies/Shadowrunners, all in all one of my favorite 30's lists to day and an entertaining read to boot. Go to Comment

Wow, a really excellent sub Kassy, it;s short and has all the relevant info to drop this guy into any sci-fish game without difficulty.

While I usually favor longer subs, this brevity to this actually works to its advantage in that a GM can quickly skim the sheet (or easily print it out as it's only a half pageish,) and then run with it after only a few minutes, making him an excellent last minute Med Tech to round out a ship or crew roster.

Love it, one of your finest submissions to date hon! Go to Comment

Compared to Sarah's background of parental death, nano infusion, being knee capped by a trusted friend, Evie's history is down right cheerful. :P (Okay maybe not the stuff that happens in Russia, but that's full of so much action you don't notice the depressing bits much.)

Her tale is one of loss, and ultimately solitude, as the title suggests. This is only the first... 10-15% of the story, lots more plot twists and (a few heart wrenching moments) to come. Go to Comment
Silveressa's comment on 2014-04-25 12:12 AM
It's more from Evelyn's perspective her animal life is already pretty clearly defined by her Life As series of books so she covers pieces in her biography her readers wouldn't otherwise know, which in this case is her human experiences.

part 10 covers more of her animal experiences, as will future pieces here and there.

I like the idea of a chapter purely from her animal perspective, I'll have to add that in at a future chapter, thanks for the suggestion! Go to Comment

It reminds me slightly of the Cuthulhu mythology of the deep ones, but has a much more usable origin and some interesting concepts.

I do have to agree with Axle however, in that it feels a bit brief, and I would enjoy reading more about their culture and other unique aspects of their race. (Do they forge metals using geothermal vents?) As for the vignette, that too would be a welcome addition. Go to Comment
Silveressa's comment on 2014-04-25 12:13 AM
Aye, it's mostly just covering background info, useful stuff for establishing character, but not earth shatteringly exciting to read. Go to Comment

Silveressa's comment on 2014-04-17 02:56 AM
Is this written up for a particular world setting? (if so which, I want to check into it!) If not I can see this working out well in Shadow Run with a bit of tweaking, or fantasy settings with even more changes.

Nicely done, and gives a great usage example of the Flirting Dress. Go to Comment

A fun short that feels like it's part of something bigger, I would enjoy seeing it continued someday.

Brilliant use of the dress, although I do wonder if the ink would run and perhaps bleed through the dress, making the message visible to all as the night wore on. Go to Comment
Silveressa's comment on 2014-04-16 06:02 PM
Aye without suspension of disbelief supers stories deflate rather quickly, although Evie didn't follow her around the air port terminal inside, so much as see which gate she was standing at through the exterior windows then boarded the plane with said tail number in between the loading crews loading of luggage. ;)

AI agree speaking while poly morphed is questionable, but having her shift back into a naked human every time she had to have a conversation, would grow... tiresome and make the stories read like some kind of exhibitionists fantasy

Glad you liked it, more to come in a few days, like usual. Go to Comment
