I use to have an ascii game that allowed you to play out WWII naval engagements. Used the same letter code, I didn't have a manual. This would have been useful in that respect. Go to Comment

Well lets hope the super villians or worse the super heros don't start wearing these. Worst of all there could be a queen bee starfish that can use these starfish to enslave those wearing starfish into some hive mind collective. Go to Comment

Concise, clear and written in fashion that suggests more than it gives, such that for me at least , seeds a desire to explore the characters further through gaming. Nicely done.
They are a lot like dwarves. Maybe they are dwarves.... Go to Comment

First of all I have group called the Theosians in one of my campaign worlds. There home is Theosia not Theos. It wasn't very digital campaign so not a lot gets posted here but still I guess some words just sound the part.

Second, this is excellent, I love the story of the naturalist, the uneaten, everything

Hungry Siberian Hippos, fun and well fleshed out.....


for every extraplanar uber beast we should have ten of these quasi-mundane but developed creatures that suggests to the characters that the fantasy world is more than just string of encounters, singular forces (light, darkness, evil, nothingness etc) and quest items, but a deep and complex world.

"Tohm is merely a very smart bone construct with no apparent evil or malicious intent. "
Yay, what is so strange about that? He just a reannimated human corpse. Stop being so judgey!

I found this charming, I was little dissappointed we didn't get a story out of it or a little depth. But overall thought this was a solid and fun idea.

A nice enough straight forward plot, nothing really wrong with it, but nothing to really draw you in.  A reasonable honest group of PCs could get through this whole adventure with two roll playing encounters and a spot/search check.  Getting the item out could prove a challenge, but an experinced group of gamers should move straight through that.

Nice item, seems dangerous...., could have placed all these facts into a narrative structure but I understand it may have been a challenge just to get all this information covered and communicated effectively. Go to Comment

I just didn't dig the story all that much, but I find that that the take on half-elf as interesting. Often I find that people don't play or write the demi-humans as alien enough. And this half-elf Pon-Farr the kid was going through could really help a character get into his character and add depth to a roleplaying scene.

But I cannot stand the over use of the rape of another in a character's backstory and means justifying his behavior. It would be nice to imagine a world in which the hero did not have to fight for sexual possession of his woman. If authors are going to deal with sexual violence then perhaps they should deal more with the victims response otherwise it just seems flippant. In this story the girl is left behind in the Hero's story and his response to her attack. Go to Comment

Summary: The first three paragraphs give us a nice summary of a how bar that serves to match bounty hunters and targets could have form organically. Then we get the modern reputation, the real meat of the sub and then some plot hooks.

Thoughts and opinions: There is very little information here aside from the "sometimes you want to go", everything prior justifies the existence of that section (which is fine). The plot hooks don't really expand upon the central idea, but they do look at it from several angles. It hints at a larger world though and offers many possibilities for new stories. Go to Comment
Formuo Magi Savant

Disclaimer: I strongly dislike the proclivity in media to portray developmentally dissabled people or autistic individuals as child-like. Developmentally disable people often do present many traits that appear child-like; a dependence on routine, an enthusiasm for what we might consider unsophisticated pleasures such as simple Christmas or Easter games or self-centered behavior, but it unfair to call them six year olds. I think it is more nuanced than that and I think those nuances are important. To ignore them is to be disrespectful.

That said, solid NPC, represents the danger of munchkin characters no? I also liked the story of the demon entering the mind and not finding a route for corruption, really good that part. I think this mage school you are describing here could be something excellent.

This was a large undertaking, writing up a culture. While I feel you covered a lot of material, you did not provide us with a picture of what it is like to interact with the people. These people have narrative to them and ascendancy and collapses. We don't learn what it is like to a be Alun or what they were really like. We have bunch of facts but not a real pictures. A good effort and an interesting one. Go to Comment
