I think the payoff of this one is the quest at the end. I normally have trouble with things lasting millenniums and countless generations as I can't even comprehend the change that would/should happen in that amount of time. It really wouldn't take more than half a decade to get the same results you are looking for and then you maintain the timeline better. Once it is that old there is nobody that will know or remember any legend, just that there is a frozen kingdom. You feed enough that this is exactly what they have while we have the background so even works with my thought process...but maybe you get my point?

That said, saving the world from an endless summer is a fantastic idea! Go to Comment

Excellent weave/set-up/hook based on the Winter's Gem! Bring back winter, for the Sun is as merciless as the Frost. Silver Blossom and Stamagast seem a tad "just thrown in" but still. Can see a part II on this sub, the actual quest for the heart, replete with danger and mystery on the island and in the frozen city beneath the eerie lake. Go to Comment

What I'm going to say is not really relevant to this sub but what Skull said about never-ending summer reminded of the Chinese legend about the time when there were ten suns in the sky and how nine had to be shot down. Anyway, my own comment on the actual sub shall shortly follow, after I read all the linked subs. Go to Comment

Pretty much what was said above. I liked this but it's a tad short for its potential (not much can be done about that though given this is a 500 words challenge, maybe you should do a no word count version?) and can be expanded on as suggested above. Nevertheless, it's a nice Weaver piece showcasing the 2 very well-written pieces by MM and Scras.

Am considering writing a part two to this -- an adventure path as Muro described. Wanted to make this longer, but the 500 word limit did force a certain brevity. Oddly, writing *less* can be a huge challenge for me. Thanks, all, for the feedback! Go to Comment

Fair criticism -- they *were* thrown in, just to give a link back to a couple of older subs that deserved it :) I hadn't considered expanding this into a full adventure before this comment, but now I may just have to. (And don't worry: the stamagast, at least, will have a much expanded role in any future subs off this one). :) Go to Comment

Skull's comment on 2015-12-03 09:18 PM
I kinda like the idea of 'saving winter.' Usually it's a long, cold, never-ending winter that must be ended. This is a refreshing twist. The only thing I might add to this is a description of how devastating an unending summer could be. Snow going away forever would be a rejoicing for many people as they wouldn't have to worry about storing food for the winter or sheltering themselves from the cold. I'd like to hear perhaps more perilous reasons as to why summer must end; maybe because everything is dying and forests are naturally catching on fire and river basins are turning into deserts. That sort of thing. Those suggestions being stated, this is still a really cool twist and I like it. Go to Comment

I like the idea, and the use of the note cards for tracking PC rep and NPC rep is handy and doesn't look like it would require too much work. I think this is a solid idea, and certainly something to rein in the murder-hobos when they start getting a little too murdery Go to Comment

The book-keeping can get to be a headache, as you mention, so I like your simplified +/- modifier index cards idea. I actually used to keep all this type of info in my head when dealing with NPC reactions. It worked but lacked a certain consistency, which this idea addresses. Go to Comment

A neat idea. Another game (a sleuth game) gave me a similar idea for reputation which would affect whether a PC could cultivate an NPC as a contact or not. Of course, I was a strict non-gamer back then and I think it was in response to request to write a utility intro for a Codex rather than having it being just a placeholder. Axle said I was a gamer at heart a while ago and apparently it was already true back then. Go to Comment

Excellent. Asides from being useful to populate an arena in a hurry,many of these could be the center-point of their own adventures. The Mascot in particular excites my imagination, but they're all useable and interesting.

Top marks. Go to Comment

Every entry, while short, is amazingly descriptive for its length. It is very tempting to make 30 full entries and link them to this page.

For that, 5/5. Could not have done this any better. Go to Comment

I couldn't create a sub titled "30 Gladiators" because it already exists somewhere. Unfortunately, it's private and/or deleted so I have no idea what it contained, and no way to check for overlap. I did my best to play with the trope a little and come up with some stuff that was new (at least, new to me). :) Glad you enjoyed the read! Go to Comment

What happened to the original 30? I feel like I've seen at least number 1 before, but if these are all truly different from the first 30, then that is pretty gosh durn impressive. Full score. Go to Comment

Not only well-written and complex, but excellently presented. I can see how the system would be a turn-off for some, but it feels organic as part of the sub. Well done. Go to Comment
