Always love the names and the way they are spun like I already know them without having to have their full story. As the army grows, so shall their influence as they will need a lot of resources to sustain a desert kingdom. Won't be long till the region will be embroiled in the fight and hopefully the gods will still be available. Go to Comment
It really came out that well. A dying city with a dark past, it appears the heritage of old, that was thought suppressed, will strangle the newcomers' will to live at last... restoring the original population, and the rites of the true god. Go to Comment
A lovely, in that disgusting evil city sort of way. Echos touches of Lovecraft as written by Borroughs or Carter.
Pulled the City Image Freetext. Added it to the codex.
We really should do more City Images. While they can be tough to write (with that focus on architecture and form to illustrate the history and society of the place), they come out so well. Go to Comment
Darn! I am constructing a vaguely similar intelligent lifeform, and I think I can steal a few things from you. Thank you in advance. :)
But what is their ultimate goal? It doesn't have to be meaning-of-life stuff, but what do they pursue? Where are they going? Are they simply floating around and thinking all their lives? What are the advances of their civilization? (Do they actually have one?) What about technology?
It is reasonable to assume that they are only on the beginning of this path, but I'd still like to hear a few thoughts on this.
Amazingly bizarre, and yet the entire thing works very very well! I can see a scenario where a local tribe starts fishing and after killing several Sshpah and mentally truncated several others, an effort is made by the intelligent fish.
Except, it doesn't have to be. Nighttime can be a relaxing, peaceful time in the world, when nature rests and soft shadows cover the ground. Not every night has to be filled with vampires, ghosts, beasts, and things jumping out from dark places.
