Nope, still every other day, I posted this after midnight on the 5th, blame the pesky international date line for making it appear on the 4th for you :P Go to Comment

Outwardly kind, yet secretly cruel and manipulative, she's perfect to add to any royal kingdom or visiting nobility to add a dash of danger and political malfeasance.

I could also see her working well as a romantic sub plot for an unlucky PC. (of course she's only using the hapless PC to her own ends, but until they realize that...)

The D&D/pathfinder write up for stats at the end I personally found handy, since it makes the character even easier to add into a game, or convert to a different rule set if desired.

Also I really loved the pic, it captures her grace and beauty nicely.

(minor grammar note the phrase "As cruel and hateful towards other people as she maybe, she-" I believe is supposed to be "may be-")

I'm glad you're enjoying it, there's lots more to come, although the beginning pieces are more character building and stage setting, there is plenty of action later on. Go to Comment

Well put together story, with some interesting characterization and some interesting developments.

A small warning in the preface that the story includes a reference to sexual violence may also be prudent, given it could cause unpleasant flash backs to real life events in some readers . Go to Comment

I've got plenty mote of these, but will spread them out over time, likely a new one every 2-3 days until caught up to the present, then likely 1 per week until it runs its course. :) Go to Comment

Lol aye, the gender vagueness was a deliberate choice, since the beginning was more to hook the reader, and challenge any preconceptions not long after. (which will prove to be an underlying theme as things develop.)

There's a lot of character building in the first few parts, with the action bits coming later, It's 60kish words so far, (and not finished yet) so lots of stuff still coming.


Oh and to answer your tongue in cheek questions becuse it's 2am and I'm bored: :P

Doggy Pregnancy?

You'll have to wait an see, although as far as controversial/disturbing subs, that one would perhaps out do my sub about the reverse abortion of an undead fetus. Okay maybe not that disturbing...

Pregnancy shape shifting?

You'll just have to read on and see if she's pregnant :P

Mass displacement:

Unstable sub spatial molecular transference. When she shifts to a smaller form a portion of the extra mass is transferred into energy and released as a flash of light, the rest is bled into sub space.

When shifting from smaller to larger forms additional mass is drawn from sub space in the form of energy and then converted to create the needed material for the new form. (at least that's what the Delta specialists told her anyway ;) )

What part in Romeo and Juilet?

Update: Edited to include the paragraph describing the characters human appearance.

(And for those who don't want to reread the first chapter just to find that one paragraph here's a quick reprint.

I remember pausing, finding my dark African American skin oddly foreign looking after seeing myself clothed in feathers, my black hair a tangle mess. years later people would say I looked a lot like Kandyse Mcclure in my human form, but at the time I was just geeky, and developed enough in the right places to get embarrassing stares from the boys in my class.

3 coins
Items  (Other)   (Magical)
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)

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

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

Silveressa's comment on 2014-02-28 05:57 PM
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!

I really love what you did with a random roll, it's well fleshed out and interesting, the kind of NPC I could easily include in a couple of my games,

I've already got a random roll I need to flesh out in the next few days, this is a wonderful example of how to do it.! Go to Comment

I especially like trio of adventures, they have a nice pick up and play feel to them, with all the relevant information able to be easily printed for the table at a moments notice. The ease with which these adventurers can also be adapted to space faring sci-fi campaigns is an additional plus. Nicely done! Go to Comment

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
