Sivvers
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Space)
axlerowes's comment on 2012-06-16 05:37 PM

I would imagine that the sivver molecules would have to have a great deal of catalytic activity to direct the formation of new sivver molecules within the host. So they could also direct the folding or re-fold existing proteins. Perhaps that could be a sivver infection biomarker, when nitric oxide synthase or calcineurin is folded incorrectly (I just want to pick molecules that bound non-carbon molecules)

As for the crystal lattice, I am willing to suspend disbelief enough to imagine a clear shiny crystalline molecule that actually has complex molecular structure containing both high energy and low energy bonds and when exposed to a relatively small amount of ambient energy becomes polar when the those low energy bonds break. But indeed there is more fiction in here than science and certainly more fiction than engineering. But also the word crystal, in addition to biochemecial definition, just means something that looks like quartz.

I think this a perfect jump for a religion.  I am also impressed that you added bit of mystery in even such a sparse post.  We get one impression, then another and then a 3rd  all in 100 words. Well done.

I really like it, I like the prose style as well.  So they are going tear down the statues and quarry new stone replace them.   



A brave man to show free verse poetry to crass obvious gamers

It is kind of a sparse and dissjointed submission, but the basic idea really got me.  I like this alot, as said the core idea is fantastic as is some of the smaller details (that they are invisible), 



 



I wonder what the going rate is for musher bugs in the arcane markets

Do they have any natural predators? Like for example an insectivore song bird that can see invisible creatures: http://strolen.com/viewing/Ghostchasers

100 Word Submission

axlerowes's comment on 2012-01-09 05:30 PM


I would love to sit down and pick this, apart disaggree with minor points, suggest a removing of the really esoteric stuff that clogs an already esoteric article, on as you point out a fairly exclusive, forum for a people with a very specific hobby.  I found this article in turn condescending, amusing, refreshing and I had one "well said moment" while reading the Aerith and Bob section. Everything you would expect in an op-ed piece.  All in all, I think this article hits it mark, makes it point and engages the reader.  Well done, I accept your 100-word challenge and thanks for again spurring my interest in this cite.

Fanboydom is about passing baton.  Role-playing is the purest form of the relay race, if the one handing you the baton got to you with purpose and grace, then your race will have the freedom and confidence that you can only get from a head start.  This one is a good start.

Doesn't adding a picture make this 1,100 words?

But even limited to a 100 words this feels padded.  I would have focused more the athestics of the item and less on its mechanics.

This is great, it reminds me of the adventure hooks at the back of the old roleplaying books from the 80s. This one has got flair.

I like these posts that give depth and details to little items.  Things like this don't make your game or your plot but they make the world richer.  Also the more detail an item has the more a PC can take to manipulating it and problem solving with it.

I enjoy the way this is written, you have a number of narrative elements that bring the concepts to life. I echo Phaidros's comments. Go to Comment
