Would make a good forum post in the Extraneous Voices of Picayune section. Don't ask me, I like you, still don't know who or what Picayune is. Go to Comment

There's a decent idea here, hiding within the manic presentation. A madman's post-mortem ramblings captured in a tome by his deranged followers via the dark arts. Paraguay and Mossad are nice touches that give this some verisimilitude.

Some bits are sloppy though, and the "101 white males" feels contrived and rushed.

Anyhoo, this would make for a interesting little modern-day (or post WWII-era) rp. Go to Comment

Does the book measure the height and angle of the reader's forehead to help determine racial purity of its readers? And why only white males...women loved Hitler.



Subplot...the neo-nazi camp comes across a book written by the ghostly hand of Chamberlin. They pass this book onto the PCs and suddenly our heros find themselves make all kinds of compromises.

If you are not looking for validation than it doesn't matter what people think of your subs.You fit in fine as far as I concerned, and I do pity you and I do validate you. I thought my Chamberlin comment was funny, and low be you in my estimation for not giving me even a snicker or disgusted eye roll. People commented on this in generally positive light. Shame on you for trying to shame us by asserting that we are shunning or excluding if you had any of emotion you assert that you are having you would have gone away quietly and not left this -I just don't belong note-. Furthermore, I want to call your hand I will make a better case that I don't belong here and you do. Let me know if you are playing! Go to Comment

Ok, I get it despite my best intentions,I really don't fit in around here. It's not a comment about you or me, we look at gaming from dif perspectives. You guys are very happy w/ the way you are doing things here. Round peg/square hole. I actually think I know the reason but don't feel like sharing (want to keep this in a positive note) I'm sorry about causing peeps problems(That is never, ever my goal). I'm sorry that Longspeak felt the need to challenge my sub. I'm not angry AT ALL and i appreciate peeps suggestions and thanx for the few good votes on things I got, I've just come to the realization that, with our differences, I don't fit in and I'm not going to.Again , you have a different take on things, not better or worse. I'm not stomping my feet saying I'll never come back here, I'm done w/ submissions. I will pop in once in a while and drop an idea in, but I have no desire to be part of something where the fit isn't right. Please, not looking for validation or pity. More so long than Good Bye.See ya around! Go to Comment

MysticMoon's comment on 2014-10-14 09:53 PM
I don't really follow, Aramax. I haven't seen enough of you to become aware of any square pegs. I certainly had my moments early on of feeling like I didn't fit in / was ignored (nothing like the feeling of commenting all over the place while watching my own subs fall off the page without a single vote) / was misunderstood, but that eventually passed. It can be kind of a crazy place here and we're all a pretty wacky bunch, but it's really worth it to stick around and figure it all out.

My advice to you is: relax, really listen to the comments, and try again. Go to Comment

Completely agree with Muro's comments. Not going to vote, because I feel it could use some fleshing out, but I really dig the core idea. Go to Comment

Hitler's suicide was not suicide. Was he killed because he was a mindless dupe to this same dark power? Or did he shoot himself to complete the ritual which ensure his own dark spirit would remain to infect the world for decades to come? Go to Comment

I really like this, although I agree that it needs fleshing out. With some formatting and proofreading, a bit more background and some more sensationalism, I'd give something like this a 5. Go to Comment

Ramhir's comment on 2010-11-07 03:03 PM


As it is right now, it is mostly a list of names and unbeatable superpowers. Not much use as it is. I would try giving each one a 2 or 3 paragraph backstory to say how he came to be that way and how he uses his powers. Try to include things about why he is that way. My players *love* to do an end-run on me and convert or otherwise neutralize my badguy. I think they like that even better than taking him down. You don't want that to be easy (unless it is part of a continuing scenario-arc), but if they discover that it is possible, they will try really hard to make it happen, with all kinds of roleplaying stuff going on, and everyone has fun.



Also, be sure that he is not too powerful. Of course, that depends on the power level of your players, but a samurai that removes 95% of a hero's health in one shot is pretty damn powerful. Or the rat that can not be harmed- arm him with a knitting needle and he'd eventually be able to kill anyone. Or the hunter with a powerful gun that always rolls criticals?



To my way of thinking, a villain should be 1) very hard to take down, 2) do enough damage to make the hero worry, and 3) have some weakness that can be discovered through roleplaying and/or research. In my experience, an unstoppable villain, or one with a blow-them-away attack will not be any fun for your gamers. They want a challenge, not an unstoppable tank or a Monty Python rinky-dink.

Longspeak's comment on 2014-01-27 07:43 PM
A couple I've used in the past...

Spectre uses his ability to merge with shadow and travel between shadows to get the drop on criminals, who he beats senseless. You might think he's a hero, and sure, he's helped a bunch of people. But he also takes their stuff, and isn't shy about using excessive force.

The Fury was drugged and they thought she was dead. They disposed of her body by putting her in the buildings incinerator. That's where she woke up. On Fire. She's criminally insane, usually failing to distinguish between friend and foe, and burns so hot it should have consumes her long ago. She doesn't talk; only howls in rage and pain and hate.

You really need to solicit some more entries to this before posting it as a votable sub. Post in the forum Fields of Challenge for help.

In the mean time, Public Draft would be the correct state for this sub - let me know if you want me to move it there.

9. Bomb threat - disarm, dismantle, or otherwise make useless an explosive device
10. Deal with a retired supervillain on their death bed - I used this in a roleplay story to pass on powers from the supervillain to a superhero, giving them new, unwanted powers. Go to Comment

Setting took total direction change when I read Scarasamax's Cosmic Era stuff. It turned in a very cyperpunk way. With the mystic connection will now work for Shadowrun type games. Go to Comment
