I really liked this one, I know it is just a list 'facts' but the tone I found fun and the picture made me laugh.
I have tried to make my aggressive love for fantasy flora and fauna known on this website, and this one just titers of the being a really great post. I absolutely love the idea and don't think it needs any more but it has so much potential to add more. Is there a hive mind? How long do the larva live in larva form?

Finally the kaiju genre demands, that right I said it, demands that the monster represent some other type of conflict or fear. Godzilla represented the nations fear of nuclear radiation, King Kong represented a nations fear of......, well Son of Kong represented the guilt associated with that fear. In Kaiju fiction I have read in the past five years monster attacks coincide with more persona- emo -issues. There was one story published in a paying market no less, in which the attack coincided with the progression of main character's mother's cancer, and another in which the giant wolf-chimera seemed to be responding to the bad break-up between a couple of west coasters named Reggie and Gwen. These could certainly be seen to represent the consequence of the rain forest destruction, but if your are going to cook it up you may as well put it on platter.

Overall really loved it, thanks for writing it. Go to Comment

Scrap-metal, Bomb crazy and Hot-rod are the only single person on the list? Everybody else is generalized or an archetype. You jump between character summaries, personality archetypes and skill sets. I could break this down, but I like your clone write up of Joes better. So i feel like you have already improved your integration of the Joes into your setting.



Have you done C.O.P.S. yet?



What about M.A.S.K.?



With the whole sale genetic engineering you could do Wuzzles, Glo Worms or Teddy Ruxbin (spelling)



What about GoBots could we some how parse those out from transformers?



What about the Inhumanoids? I had a D'Compose toy I thought was really cool.

I think you nailed you summed up the issues with this sub in you own comment. You tell a story sort, you have events, but you don't really have characters, motivations, or a plot. You just have a lot descriptions such...killed by rail gun...killed by plasma cannon and so on. Those don't really do much for the description except outline your vision for how these encounters should play out.

Still there is a lot here. Go to Comment

A nice narrative will details that could be lifted by any world builder or scene setting gamemaster. I also really enjoy game write ups, I don't support them enough on this site.



Didn't anybody mention that the Brigand would be better named Fury if his gang was the Fists of Fury? ;)

axlerowes's comment on 2012-10-08 09:44 PM
Physic shysics, I think this is great, this tells the story Qualm's origin and outlines how future stories involving Qualm will take shape. I could really see a justice league like unit of super heros taking this on as well. I think CM and the others highlight most what was great about this, but I also like the name. How did it get the name? Go to Comment

I enjoyed reading this thank you for writing it. It reads like the liner to video game or the summary of some late night movie, and in short it is great lead in for a game with a lot of flexible pieces you could spin into multiple plots.
More of a plot really than a society. Go to Comment

Why are chitinous space turtles bad science? If on present day earth turtles and reptiles as a whole do not produce chitin does that mean that alien resembling a turtle or a reptile or futuristic animal also similar to a turtle could not produce chitin? Go to Comment
Non-Euclidean Architecture: Part 1

axlerowes's comment on 2012-11-29 08:22 PM
Perhaps a simple way to mix these concepts into a game grid would be to put players or characters into a space in which light suddenly moves in an extremely non-euclidien path over short distances. The characters would have to quickly adapt to "seeing" something in front of them that is actually to their left, and things that are moving would appear to be moving around them or disappear from vision.

Skarsnik Nil

axlerowes's comment on 2012-06-06 05:21 PM
Was Guznal Skarsnik the one seeking to learn more about cultures? Was the spear supposed a tool to help him do that?

Does the spear "make fish" since you can use it to catch fish in a pool that would not normally have any or do you just wish to keep that vague and mystical. Vague is fine, but if that is the case then you may wish to remove the point about it limiting the the fisherman to five fish per "use". Because what counts as a fishing trip? And if it manifests fish from nothing, than what if the fear of over fishing.

I think you want this write up and the item to be means by which we can get a side long veiw of goblin culture. I like that idea, but I don't think this has succeeded. If you don't want this to be a novel window in the goblin way of life then try taking this up with the 100 word challenge. Go to Comment

Honestly, I wonder if this is some sort of test of citadel community. A new user appears with an earnest line about being a writer and then posts work seemingly from a bunch of other writers and focuses much on the feedback. Are they checking to see what goes into a vote? Are they picking stuff written by rivals? Or this is just straight theft to achieve some on-line affirmation? On-line plagarization for no profit or real word gain....what is the point? Further study is warranted.

But yeah..... CHALLENGE Go to Comment
