I have a stillborn sub with a similar idea behind it - the Karth. One of a fleet of autonomous warships, the lone (cliche) survivor of the class. It has gone off to make a small empire for itself in a far flung corner of humanspace. Might revive it.

Bleak wood! Awesome stuff there.

I like the visual of this thing hanging in the sky among the stars.

I find it odd that the US would see the need to nuke Canada, as conventional forces would have a pretty easy time of it, and unless the nukes were tiny, they would be obliterating a good portion of their own population. Detroit, New York state, Oregon, etc. Most of our population is within 100 miles of the states and it would seem like using nukes in a civil war. That and I expect by the timeframe in question, a huge amount of the american water supply would come from Canada.

Great stuff! The old RPG Gamma world had a whole rule system for identifying the artifacts of the ancients and encouraged providing descriptions that did not immediately identify them.

This is a great way to add some anachronisms to your campaign that is highly controlled.

And as a Canadian, I think it would be unfair to guess on that item :P

A great first post - lots of detail, though nothing too groundbreaking. It seems to be a fine adaptation of the standard races for your campaign.

Great stuff(ed) here:) Some of these, especially with the mandibulectomy, would have suitably horrible visuals.

I love the tone of this - I had attempted this type of tone on some my early submissions, but this is excellent, and I look forward to more!

Great stuff!

I love the - uniqueness - flavor - these submissions have. Would love to see what this would look like - I have a picture in my minds eye - like driftwood made from white jade.

A wonderful amount of background - the swords seem to fade away though. It would seem this time period - the 3 kingdoms - would be an excellent backdrop for a campaign.

Neat stuff! Go to Comment

Perfectly evil. An excellent addition to the necromancer's toolset of horrors.

Throw in a massive undead porter to carry it around...

Dralasites (from Star Frontiers) might fall under this category as well, though they are far less plastic then those listed here and have more defined skin.

These are cool and the description was excellent. My only concern is with the initial story - even with convenient leverage obtained by hooking the Storm King, a small person is going to need help to yank him around like that. More realistically, a massive, armored, fit and skilled opponent is going to haul the chains out of your hands, breaking them if your grip is stronger than you limbs. The spikes have to being doing more than simply providing a grip.

Pretty snazzy - like the visuals with this one, and it could easily be adapted to other forms/energy types/

This is great stuff here - one of these provides such handle on a person its crazy. It feels like a good extrapolation of the Helicopter Parent phenomena. Great stuff.

valadaar's comment on 2015-06-18 12:45 PM

This brings up some interesting points.

I'd also add Missing Resources.

For example, our space program would have been immensely complicated by a lack of minable fissionables. Or if Coal or similar concentrated hydrocarbons never developed like they did on earth. No coal or easy oil could easily slow down the march of technology until something else destroys the civilization.

To expand - Coal only came about because for a very long time, there was no organism - bacteria, fungi, etc, that could digest cellulose. So trees would simply not rot when they died. If some bacteria had co-evolved with trees so that trees could not build up that way, you would have no coal. Which, as any CIV player will tell you, is a key resource for Railroads, and therefore most of the industrial techs too. Oil was used well after the coal economy was established.

I think its a wonderful treatment of The blog/ The Thing/Invasion of the Bodysnatchers.

Maybe not what you wanted, but cool nonetheless.
