Mastwood Trees

The trees on Mastwood island are the sole surviving product from trade that existed between the Empire and the strange and dangerous people known as The Rephatians.

The Rephatians are a strange and little known people, with a powerful affinity for the workings of life. They will be the subject of further submissions in the not-so-distant future.

They grow at an incredible rate and produce a strong, tall and straight tree. They do have a huge impact on the soil and require significant fertilizer to maintain growth. If sufficient nutrients or water are not provided for an extended period - 3-6 months, the trees will turn inwards for nutrients and the strength of the wood will be greatly decreased. For this reason, these trees cannot occur naturally.

Depending on the desired size, the trees reach full growth within 10-20 years. After reaching full growth, they must be harvested quickly or they eventually will grow too high. At some point, the weight of the tree will exceed it's own ability to support its weight and the tree will snap.

The Mastwood trees occasionally suffer from a growth defect which causes severe internal stress to build up within the trunk. This will continue until the stress reaches the breaking point and the trunk explodes - sending sharp splinters in all directions. This can be detected by careful examination of the trunk, but touching a stressed area is liable to trigger the burst. Go to Comment

Necromancer of the Isle

In addition to the military garrison, the island is defended by the Necromancer Kazarad the 3rd and his entourage of undead. The Empire normally does not sanction the use of necromancy, but the unique requirements and high secrecy of Mastwood has allowed for special permission. The use of undead and dealing with the Necromancer is a closely held secret within the Imperial council.

Due to the gradual degradation of his undead, the corpses of executed prisoners, disaster victims and others are occasionally shipped to the island along with the vast amounts of fertilizer needed to supply the trees. Kazarad makes use of these corpses to increase and replace the undead patrolling the island. The undead are commanded not to attack those in Imperial livery, but they do not always obey - which makes life interesting for the human garrison of the island. Go to Comment

An interesting article.

I have one concern with regards to planetary blockade - the use of big energy weapons cut both ways - Planetary defences could be quite formidiable and may (obviously this is debatable), exceed the capabilities of ship-born weapons. Go to Comment

I assume this are surface mail only for shipping? Are they available for shipment to Canada? How do I label them for customs?

Very good indeed, though the entries for '30' are starting to creep up in size - some of these folks really deserve full write ups of their own.

Here's an idea for the next quest - 'Fleshing the 30's - build a full sub using a person from any of the 30's listings...' Go to Comment

Definately not a subtle monster. Apart from powerful magic or old age/misadventure, how do the Ocadians obtain the teeth to use as knives? Do they loose them regularly? Go to Comment

It basically seems that its a calvary group combining Saracens AND crusaders, correct?
That would be a nasty tag-team indeed.

As manfred mentioned, the size of the group seems excessive to me. The logistics of feeding 20000 landless soliders (plus their support staff, camp followers, etc) would be incredible. Go to Comment

A most worthy assortment of ships! I salute you. Though I would add the Ageis cruiser (which I believe is much smaller then traditional Gun cruisers) or equivalent and maybe a treatment of the amphibious (transatmospheric?) assault vessels. Go to Comment

Interesting, though with what current medicine can do, and can come close to doing, I would that once we advance to portable fusion reactors, regrowing the bottom half of people should be duck soup.
