Very nice the narrative tone sets the scene nicely, and the over all presentation felt fresh and well laid out, definitely one of my new favorites! Go to Comment
3 coins

Silveressa's comment on 2014-04-04 02:25 AM


Interesting item, and I can certainly see it encouraging the rest of the group to also be more generous int eh hopes of receiving coins themselves (even if the luck is purely imaginary and only seems lucky to the PC's/players)



Oh and one small nit pick in the line: a woman who can't find his children and so on. (I just found the sentence a bit jarring due to the error)

Gravediggers' Legacy
Items  (Equipment Listing)   (Combat)
Silveressa's comment on 2014-03-08 04:37 PM
With a little adjustment these cursed tools would work well in a Supernatural campaign, especially with the creator being part of a follow up adventure.

A solid 4/5 with an extra .5 for having immediate use to me in my gaming endeavors! Go to Comment
My Last Crop of Humans

Silveressa's comment on 2014-03-04 04:19 AM
I really liked this one, it had a nice archival feel to the tale although the ending did feel somewhat abrupt.

Still it was a fun read, and running into this computer centuries later (with or without a struggling/prospering colony under it's wing) could make for an interesting adventure in an ongoing Traveller or other space faring sci-fi campaign. Go to Comment

Now you've got my curiosity Echo, what is your deduction for the computers "everything was clear to me now?"

My conclusion was the computer understood humans need the illusion of control over their own destiny to create, (I.E the pregnant woman) or destroy (I.E the weapons) as they see fit in order to feel "free" and thus "happy/content" with their existence. Go to Comment
Lescelina the Witch Queen

I really enjoyed this piece, with the plot hooks at the end providing a ready introduction into most fantasy campaigns.

It's a shame however that player characters encountering her will likely never come to realize her rich and fascinating background, at least not with any degree of accuracy.

A solid 5/5, the kind of NPC a GM can really get a handle on and have fun portraying!

Handy list for street level supers or police games, also great for random contacts for characters that could come in handy. Go to Comment
Refuge Beneath the Waves

Silveressa's comment on 2014-03-01 08:34 PM
It took me a while to read through hence the late commentary, but this definitely reminds me of the Bioshock series, (with a hint of Blue Planet) which only adds to the feeling of familiarity yet with it's own unique changes.

This is one of those settings that gab me and make me want to run a campaign and explore the concepts more thoroughly.

With it being set underwater it also makes this easy enough to plug into most other steampunk settings as a "hidden world" no one on the surface was even aware existed.

With a little work it can be adapted to sci-fi or post apocalypse settings easily enough as well.

5/5 and a HoH, really loved reading this one! Go to Comment

I like it, neatly written and with a touch of menace that at first seemed like something more, then faded to childish innocence.

Well worth a 5/5 :D Go to Comment

Nice insight to how the Delta Factor world deals with "heroes" and some nice character building for Sarah. (It'd be nice to see her and her friends detailed as NPC's here someday.)

Short and catchy, with all the quality I'd expect in a short story from one of the published magazines like the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. 



The piece can work well as the basis behind a rescue mission for nearly any sci-fi setting, or a cautionary tale told around the star port bar by a retired brotherhood guard about what happens to those who are *too* successful with cutting edge creation.

It has a nice Shadowrun flavor to it, and delivers without being too dry or factual, with the images a nice touch.

One could easily use this as a player handout for the decker that goes digging into NACA origins. Go to Comment

I'm back after an 18 month hiatus, so if there's still interest in this I can continue and post the remaining Synopses (#24-32)

On a side note Sessions 21+ are now available for public view. A few new sessions will be released every couple weeks or so, so as to spread out the subs and not flood the citadel with a wall of Session synopsis.

Recorded the sessions live; made it much easier to review what happened (and saved writing tons of adventure summary notes) Originally we'd planned on uploaded it as podcasts (similar to "The last of Us" podcasts, but after the campaign wrapped up a couple of the players had second thoughts about it, so they got archived on a removable hard drive instead.)
