Even though I have used them, I dislike the "bang your dead traps". And this has no story, narrative, cryptology, culture or illustrative text to really make it anything more than "man gets hit with big stick". Go to Comment

This fantastic, I am glad it was highlighted today, it is little details like these that can make game seem deep real and alive. Conversely this could be great fun the for PCs to plant into there own backstory or to find in the backstory of NPCs. For the GM this is an easy way to add weight to an NPC. The cute double entendre will make the device easy to remember, accessable and amusing for the people at the table. Of course you know all this, you wrote it, but I appreciate it.

Eating in the Parslexburgs

The following was taken from a letter to Lord Coornistan from his brother Lord Hubret concerning Lord Hubret's recent visist to the Parslexburgs. Lord Hubret was advising his brother on living conditions and the cutlures of the Burg's inpreparation for the forth coming Crusade. The plan was that Crusading forces would be marshalled at the burgs and then depart from the Burgs to liberate the Noric lands.

Food: Soup! Soup in a bowl! Soup is served at both the meals they take during the day. Not served in a trenchant of bread, but in a earthen ware or wooden bowl and it is eaten with a miniature ladle. This soup course seems to be so important to their sensibilities that no meal can be served without. This was true even when staying in the field. And as mentioned before they only eat two meals a day, they do not break fast but take only a midday and evening super. Which is not to say their mouths are ever lax, if not flapping out a long disgusting speech; they are constantly eating. They pick all day at bits of cold food, either carried with them in a small sack or purchased from one of the constant harassing criers.

But they do sit at table at least once day. There are no songs at these tables, and they sit all, men and women, around the tables. The tables worst of all are positioned in the middle of the room. This means that the servants have to approach you from behind to refill your goblet. I damn near killed a half dozen serving wenches and porters during my stay. But Gods be Wise, and I learned a few things while at these meals.

As I said before the meal starts always with a soup, even when I spent two days on the road with a Parslex caravan. And the soups is always so strongly flavored that you cannot taste the meat, but instead taste what ever ancient weed they chose to boil in milk, oil or butter that day. Then once you have your food on the table one of the other guests will ask you a question. This is not a challenge, it is fact what is considered polite in the Burgs. But if they are use to outsiders they will either ask each other questions or sit their as nervous as a treaty wife on her wedding night. Breaking the silence with toast or tails does little to put these peasants at ease. So it is best to have a question. If there is music at the meal you are not expected to join in either with voice or clap, but instead continue to act as if fellows at the table are more interesting than the bard (who will be in front of you if you are lucky). Most horrific of all, after the soup they bring out the meat, which must have been on ice block since last winter since they always cover the meat in some sort of sauce or bake it in some type of bread. Our camps would best served by buying livestock and grain, and keeping our kitchens next among the tents.

Getting players information... World Packs
Articles  (Campaign)   (Game Mastering)
axlerowes's comment on 2010-10-14 02:32 PM


Wow, the only Moonhunter article I thought needed more information, it should read as a list of things players need to know.  Which in a sense it does, but in a long wordy fashion. It doesn't get into what it takes to have a well rounded character or a well rounded world, because he dealt with that elsewhere.  So what this article is getting at is how to present information to your players.  In that respect it fails, the article's only novel note is that you shouldn't be afraid to give out handouts or require reading.  It is great thought if poorly executed, and we should not forget the value of keeping a lot of wet cement in your game, so you can adapt the world to your players as things progress.

This is good list of warning signs, more directional than instructive, I like the use of broad brush, makes it accessible to many people. But people ask for advice on the internet, sometimes want advice, but mostly I think they just want to talk about themselves and their ideas or problems. Go to Comment

I am not sure if this is a work of fiction, a real world root for a fiction lead in or an attempt at academic discourse...

I think you misunderstood Kendraheart's question, in as much as the statement just kind of hangs out there...scholars in which world, which field are we referring the fictional creatures titled gargoyles or their implementation as piece of art or design. Go to Comment

Nice idea, I really like it, but honestly do you think women would really respect men any more eating this flower. I doubt it because they still have the "I carried you child around for 9 months" card to play.

As for use in game, my last group played a lot of in game pranks on each other. And I could see a nice salad of these flowers being served to numerous characters. Go to Comment

This is very clear, in fact the writing is so concise it could even be shorter. But at the same time the spirits still remain ambigious, and that is a positive. I think this could fit very well into any number of settings, either as a "reality" or the belief system of another culture. Go to Comment

this would be much better, even useful if it was written for the task. This is essentially technical writing and thus should use concise prose to communicate points. The first two full paragraphs in the intro could have been two sentences. Go to Comment
