I think this is an excellent submission - and I plan to add to it - perhaps a debate over the 5th element (Nothing to do with that movie though !) Go to Comment
Theory of Elements
Systems  (Mystical)   (General)
valadaar's comment on 2007-01-17 07:43 PM
With all due respect to my esteemed colleagues, R.A. Blenkinsop, G. Wainwright and L.L.K. Janovsky, I cannot fully agree with their assertions on the topic of the elements, specially their consideration of Spirit, or the 5th Element.

In our studies, we have determined that Spirit indeed is a separate element and moreover, it is only through it's influence that the secondary and tertiary elements can exist at all. This replaces their current 4-tiered system with the three, which harmonizes well with the Trinity.

Before Creation, the universe consisted only of four elements, complete in their purity. Once the Universe came to Divine Attention, it was only then that the elements could combine. The pure elements left little avenue for creation of appropriate mortal coils, though beings were created, which we now know as the Elementals. These early elementals still exist today, but bereft of the element of Spirit, they are inferior beings. To provide proper containers for the Spirit, the elements were allowed to mix through the powers of the Spirit.

Upon Creation, the raw elements were touched by Divine attention and became infused with spirit. This spirit enables the elements to mix, bringing forth the existence of the other two tiers of the elements. Since Spirit is necessary to form any of the bonds, all of them include an equal proportion of spirit.

We do not contest the theory of the tiers of elements, only the view of Spirit being a combination of the four elements.

Now, the addition of the element of Spirit brings rise to additional four second tier elements. We refer to these as Divine Elements. No such material has yet been isolated, but once the Grand Elemental Circle at Cambridge is completed in the next five years, we should be better able to delve into this study, and produce samples of the Divine Elements.

At this point, venturing into the properties of the Divine Elements is a matter of speculation and is the subject of our upcoming paper.

Editor's note: R.H. Gainsworth's experimental results have yet to be confirmed by any officially sanctioned facility, and his opinions do not reflect that of this journal.

An interesting item, though its very niche. It seems that it would best be provided by some NPC to assist in a very specific mission. Otherwise I would add a few more trollish bonuses to the item to have the PCs keep a hold on it. Go to Comment

This is a great minor race. They have enough details and hooks to be quite usable.

This is original! An NPC that comes in a bottle. I like this idea..

I wouldn't bother with the phylacteries. Its magic - no need to create a storage container for memories, and I think it unnecessarily complicates the core idea. If you must, perhaps it takes over a small portion of the pill-popper's own mind to store its memories, which could then potentially 'leak' into the user's own consciousness.

Disagree with Moon on this one - the History adds to a good physical description of the city - It certainly conjured up a City Image to me.
