Wow, excellent use of graphics and interesting puzzles. It is very old school style - the dungeon existing mainly as a test, with insta-death being common. Since you cite Tomb of Horrors as an inspiration, that part is not too surprising, and I would hope PCs going in would know this.

I like these - brings back visions of Starcraft with infested units, but its still very cool.

This is an excellent treatment of the Giant Monster vibe, apart from the creatures as deadly contaminates being as strongly put as they being a source of food/fertilizer. Though, given the low value of the individual in the Cosmic Era I guess they are not necessarily at odds.

This hints at more, and I think covers the bases nicely. The bit about the dark spirits aiding the smith is a good one - I like this.

The nature of its chief ability - to counter pain - is loose enough to fit to many game systems mechanics, so really the determination of its power is up to the GM.

Hmm, thought I commented, but apparently did not click OK.
This has a lot of uses, and is a perfect fit with Tattoos.

These can be used also to adorn items to provide subtle clues to their abilities.

There are a few hive-mind type creatures, but there is no reason you can't add another :)

A quick comment on word structure - you have a couple of sentences which aren't really sentences.

eg:

"Though absorbing a group of mentally ill patients will not help their cause."

Drop the Though, and it works better.

and

"Forming temporary structures to get over walls or getting their brethren up on the ceiling for the upcoming ambush."

I'd suggest:

"They can form temporary structures to get over walls or getting their brethren up on the ceiling for an upcoming ambush.


I hope you don't mind this feedback - I tend to find stuff like this a little distracting and makes it more difficult for me to judge the idea on its own merits.

Great idea!

I can also create regions if needed. I have a somewhat abandoned one here - http://strolen.com/regions/World_of_Neyathis

valadaar's comment on 2014-06-13 11:08 AM
A good idea, though there are some significant wording issues and typos that are very distracting to me, and take away from this idea.

Some sentences are not formed well. For example:

"Taking the enemies property in lieu of payment."

,.. Is what? Allowed? Not Allowed? Encouraged?



There are bolded words which are setup as links, but do not link to anything. Eg. Blight to the Realm people or Estate beast.

I would suggest putting this submission through spellcheck (Google docs is easy and free) or using chrome and it's built in one.

I would also suggest reading the submission aloud to yourself to catch the odd wording, sentence structure, and the occasional run-on sentence.

This is well described and detailed.



It does, however, very strongly echo the themes of http://strolen.com/viewing/Flirting_dress a fairly recent submission.

You can change it back to private in work if you must, but adding an acknowledgement to the original source should be fine. Your take is a bit different so does not need to be cast away into the darkness :)

A very impressive submission! I was going to say first but you've been a member for a while - nice to see you posting.

A great idea - goes coin in purse with Dozus's The Way of Divine Wealth, with that religion's focus on commerce. Plots, detail, interactions with the PC's - great job!
