I'm not really a fan of steampunk, but I can see these things marching on civilization and its mildly terrifying. They definitely fit the feel of steampunk and like Gorgon said, as long as the technology exists in a game they could be easily adaptable. Go to Comment
If it were easier to adapt to a game perhaps I would like it more, but I do not want to detract from how cool of an idea it is. Any other remark I would have has been said. I like this idea. Go to Comment
Since everyone else is holding off on voting, so shall I. I do like that it is a racial weapon, though I would like to see a write up for the race they belong to. I see you are intending on doing so, so I will just wait and hope you link the two for maximum enjoyment. Go to Comment
Well, if people are going to vote, so shall I. I like mundane items as much as any other items and these seems to be an ingredient to the flavor of elves in Railus' game world. I would love to read more about them, especially if its a new take on elves. Go to Comment
I haven't seen many whips around, and this one seems fairly powerful, but from what I can tell its the only one that exists so that can be the balance. I like the concept. The back story seems to provide a fair amount of intrigue as well. Lets hear more about Cedir, but this is a nice item. Go to Comment
I like this as a follow-up to Bloodmail. I like the roleplaying possibilities and like Valadaar said, the teaser text is a little misleading (but that is the only downside to the post in my oppinion.) Excellent sub. Go to Comment
These rare, fist-sized spiders do not make webs, but rather excrete secretions which harden upon contact with air. These "droppings" resemble barley-sized spider eggs, or even lustrous pearls, once the slime coating them, dries up. In fact, dried Pearl Spider "drops" are indistinguishable from the marine varieties produced by mollusks, and hence of identical value on the open market!
Several centuries ago, they were studied by naturalists, and several observations were made. Firstly, was that these spiders "lay" these pearls for no apparent or discernible "natural" reason, and secondly, the naturalists had discovered that the more these spiders ate or were fed--and they were true omnivores--the larger the spider pearls came out.
A cottage industry began. Enterprising merchants hunted and collected these creatures across the lands, erecting spider-farms for the manufacture of Spider Pearls. It wasn't long before someone got the idea to force-feed the spiders, ala foie gras geese, and soon, the fattened spiders began pooping out pearls of great size! (relatively speaking). The regular pearl market came to disarray, and prices and value fluctuated wildly.
