It because of your catherine spell that I wrote this up, as I worked on a plot using the catherine spell and derivates of the Catherine spell I needed a system by which a spell generated person could carry memory-at least some memory-between summonings. Go to Comment

This is very intellectual and abstract take on a religion. You have outlined a theological core but given little of the practice of it. Certainly these philosophies of life could be followed by somebody who is looking for direction, meaning or structure-but why make religion out of it?
What do the gods get out of it?
Do the Gods grant powers in your world? If there is no supernatural power associated with this religion what role does it play in society?
Does it effect the moral codes of the land?

I think we really should to write this up as part of a narrative, put this through the crucible of story telling, and see what comes out.

Overall nice one. very cerebral I like it. Go to Comment

I was commenting a what an idea spring board Gossamer had left for you. Writing "you might want to proof read", both brilliant, insightful and articulate. Go to Comment

Well I really enjoy your stories, the one about the smart sword, the serial killer and such all good stuff. I think that stuff, more than listing facts helps to crystalize ideas. Perhaps Bob had a crisis of faith, perhaps Bob is torn between God and Country....whatever. The overall question for everything on this site that is not a story is - Do these ideas revolving around ( in the this case the tri-faith) help you to tell stories? Go to Comment

"axelrowes (might have) suggested"

are my comments unclear? If so I am sincerely disappointed in myself. I will try and make them more pointed and direct in the future.

Leaving rambling nonsensical comments is a trap I fall into all too often. I am wary of it.

I like the new story thread. Yeah beaver don't technically eat wood, but they must swallow some wood during all their gnawing, can we really say that the beavers don't eat wood? It adds real hands on feel to the religion and more importantly implies a depth with regard to inner faith conflicts and mores. Shoes forged from nickel and tin.

So let me know if the comments are just nonsense or hard to follow. Go to Comment

It does not say why you vote. Even you conclusion say this is how you vote.

Does the voting system contribute positively to the Citadel? Does system of stick and carrots improve the content? What value do you put on the votes that you get?

Could voting system contribute to biased system that excludes certain types of content? Is that a good a thing?

Thanks for playing.

A Spell Called Catherine
Plots  (Crisis)   (Single-Storyline)
axlerowes's comment on 2013-06-09 08:59 AM
This is great, let me follow that up with a self indulgent story. I had a similar situation a couple of campaigns ago.One race was summoning humans. So a human could be just minding his or her business and then poof they were summoned to distant land and given instructions by an unknown elf which they felt compelled to obey. The result,  in game, was that the priest character (played by a gamer with no meta-sensisabities...bless him) started to by very concerned for the well being of his summoned creatures. It climaxed when during the final battle of the campaign the priest healed the summoned creature and dismissed him-two things that near gave my meta gamers a stroke. 

I have also always thought that focus of magic on combat to the lack of domestic magic was a little extreme. In a world like the one you present here, in which magic can be sold and has a wholesale, almost mundane, property I would say that once the flood gate of domestic magic is open society's strategies for dealing with problems would change exponentially. Imagine what the psychiatric community could do with charm magics (depression? ZAP!-gone), and would theater even require actors if you had good illusions and summoning spells. Might all of Mendalusus learn that they are all summoned beings!?!?! 

 Ah well excellent stuff...

This is great idea, really enriches a world. Perhaps deciding on a voice and a theme would give this a little more focus. I am assuming that these exist in a fantasy/iron age type setting. Are you writing this with an in-world voice or meta-voice?

I think a title such as these below would be fun.

"A Traveller's guide to to obscure picto-graphs"

"A catalog of peasant heraldry"

"Commercial Heraldry"

If it is in game/in world voice why is somebody writing this piece?

I like the opening line. People can deal with the facts, but there is a lot more to this...what is innocence, what is a monster, the flowers seem to have tapped into this oversoul of morality...and I am inspired by it. Wrote an Oekaki based on this Go to Comment

I think Forganthus had the right of this. There a lot of NPC generators out there. This one lacks anything that makes it a true spouse generator in as much as it does not delve into the relationship of the couple. I see from your comment that you disagree with this, but perhaps you could reconsider his suggestions.  But as NPC generators go this is just as good as any other. What does your wife or significant other think of this chart? Go to Comment

I suppose this is primarily about the chemical delivery system with some asides regarding the role it plays in scras's world. Juicers wear a harness that deliver drugs. The author didn't think very highly of the system or the people that use it. Go to Comment
