The Baron:



This King took an oath loyalty to another King before he conquered his current Kingdom. He is still a landed Baron in another Kingdom, responsible for taxes and duty bound to obey his King. But he is also a King in his own right and the interests of his two realms may come into conflict.

Very nice, if your are playing/running a tightly regulated feudal society the PCs would love to slide into such an unregulated center of commerce. Go to Comment

First of all great item for problem solving PCs and a great plot device for stories with a farce or comedy bent. I can't believe nobody thought of it sooner! I also like the way you took an item and integrated into your world. Thanks,

*lies on the floor in the utmost humility*

Please forgive me for pointing this out, but 'varieties' is spelled wrong in the first paragraph. Go to Comment

I really like the ideas behind what you are describing here. Though the description lacks a personal touch, more like a description of a description. But this is great platform for new ideas and different directions. Full disclosure, i have not read the user submitted ideas. But I think this is sweet idea, smoothly realized. Go to Comment

They can eat, but can they drink. Might you find these tortured souls hanging out alongside distilleries or vineyards?

Also what of their written works, wouldn't their stories be full of secretes of the realm. Or could they keep up a correspondence with memebers of the living world. Could one these thing live a life entirely through written messages; letter, journals, graffiti etc? Go to Comment

Very nice creation myth, and it sets up a nice epic conflict. I would like to hear the history from the prospective of the demons and false prophets. Go to Comment

I love this one, it has a very classic DnD/Mythos feel to it, I can't point to what I loved about it, but I now I loved it one.



 



One thing: this sentence is wrong, it has the feel of something that has been edited some many times that important words and phrases have been lost.



  What only a handful of learned scholars is that in combination, these items were created as a whole for the purpose of pandemonium.What only a handful of learned scholars is that in combination, these items were created as a whole for the purpose of pandemonium.

I think this is solid, it contains at least two ways this could be a jumping off point to a subplot or an adventure

-it is the side arm of an officer...is the officer the bandit, did the bandit steal it from the officer,

-it has devotion of the god on the side

-it could also be a combination of these two facts that lead to something of interest.

I have said this before, but I think post of items and such for gaming suggest more than they say. I think this does that. Go to Comment

I really like most of your stuff Scrasamax, particularly your high tech post/sci-fi posts.  But this article is a little much, I was hoping it would be a flippant and amusing piece. But it is instead another argument for talking oneself and by extension gaming too seriously.  Maybe I missed the tone, but how can you write a article like this with out a sense of irony or absurdity?

I do think it is polite to comment on all the subs you can. People post things here in part because they want comments. But people also post things to give a wider audience to their work. Role-playing can be a media, like theater, comic books or any other type of narrative art. Yet in role-playing we often have a very small audience. This site gives us a chance to share our work with others who have similar interests, and sharing our work is one of the reasons we have this hobby. So think AG is right, it is important to be an audience on this site as well as an author, because a reciprocal relationship where everyone is an author or performer and an audience member is what makes role-playing games more than just games.

I do think voting serves a purpose. It allows the readers to feel more of an interaction and involvement with the posts. The voting is also a type currency which people can barter around and it creates a loose hierarchy. So in essence you have a game, these currency and hierarchy relationships are also the chief mechanic of most facebook “games”.


That is why I think we should view the game part of this site as absurd or superfluous. When you start to think that the your average post rank or experience reflects you talent or ability then I say you are ascribing to much value to the votes. A ascribing to much value to the game part of this interaction demeans the other more important interaction. I think Scras’s post, which asserts that his ranking are based on years of experience with literature and gaming, places too much meaning on the voting mechanics.

But just in case I am wrong, here is some exp.

Scras deletes posts that don't score well and still posts a lot, I think deleting poor scoring posts is standard for those that really care about their scores. Go to Comment
