An interesting form of agitprop, but very fitting for the setting. Go to Comment

What Valadaar says. Of course, I have to add that 1984 is already here, in the real world. Between mass surveillance, the militarization of the police and media fear mongering we already live in cages - albeit more gilded cages than in the Refuge beneath the Waves.



Ahem

The Faython Parchment

The Poet Faython was one of the most prolific writers of sunshine pamphlets, his words evoking a beautiful imagery of a faerylike reality. At his peak the workers used to gather in secluded spaces and host open readings of his works; the highlight of the week when he released another pamphlet - tied to the fence of a member of the ruling class.

One day his pamphlets ceased to come, and his followers learnt of his imprisonment. While in prison he confided in Sor, his jailor, one last poem. He begged Sor to write it down after the beheading.

Faython was publicly hanged, then beheaded, and Sor snuck in after the ceremony and stole some of the poet's blood.

With the blood he wrote the Faython Parchment - Faython's last sunshine pamphlet, where the author describes his longing for a better place whilst comparing it against the bleak reality of his imprisonment and impending doom.

Upon the release of the Faython Parchment, there was an uprising of significant magnitude.

Still today the words of the Faython Parchment invoke the strongest of emotions; of sadness and yearning for a better place. It is a valuable parchment and a powerful tool of those conspiring against the state. It is also an artifact sought by the authorities - one that will bring a nice reward, or a painful death to its owners. Go to Comment

This one went dark quick, anti-union thought police, public murder, censorship.



You convey a lot in a 100 words. Not the direction I would have gone with the setting or at least I think you could have done this with a more nuanced write up or had the discipline to develop this idea more. This could be the plot to a whole a novel. But you give put it out here in a 100 words and you have certainly put the setting in corner. Nice use of language.

Remember
1 We can use this on only a limited number of areas, it doesn't need to be everywhere
2 While I feel it fits perfectly,We don't have to use it at all Go to Comment

This is neat, It could be used for almost any setting. It is a good write up with clear details and strong feeling of verisimilitude. But that it doesn't really world build for the setting except that it gives anti-establishment vocabulary for setting in which the conflict between the classes seems to be a more theme. Go to Comment

This write up is weak sauce. If you have to reference the goth movement you are either brainstorming or breaking into the GM voice. Go to Comment

It is nice piece of culture here. I think what you are saying is that this a music style embraced by the children of the well to do, and that the fashion and style of music started as a very contrived medium. This culture has gone mainstream, and the clubs represent a hip place to meet. This sort of details is nice if you want a quick reference grab-and-gone counter culture club in your story. You have got some slang, some fashion and a style of music. But what are you trying to say with phrase such as the is culture "has LED to experimental homosexuality, drug use and stuff? Are you suggesting that is a widely held of view of this by the culture, like how people blamed Marlyn Manson for school shootings or you suggesting that something about this actually leads people to these behaviors? If you were about this culture from a in world perspective what would people say about it?

What kind of hats were you imaging?



I do like this idea, but I wish you could count to 100 or at least try to count to 100. If you want to write super short subs that is fine, but it is just weird that you would tie 100 word sub to subs that are over 100 words. Sheldon would not be pleased. Go to Comment

I think with a bit of work, it would fit in the 100 word submission.

It makes sense apart from I"m not sure what BND stands for. Go to Comment

My basic concept here was:mixing Hippies(group sex and drugs) beatniks (experimental homosexuality and gear) and Rock and roll. Removed 100 word thing to please Sheldon(all praise Sheldon).led is poor choice of words.will change. Go to Comment

I tweaked per your suggestions. These latest couple of additions to Mystic's setting were very short of purpose. while I could easily expand them, I was looking at the practicalities of word count in a source book or the main rules. Adding cool flesh that for the most part should be just side notes to a setting. The other piece I am currently working on is for what I hope to be one of the major baddies, and am putting a lot more into that. Go to Comment
