Perhaps there might be made a scroll for other monarchs to be submitted as their thought up? If there are 30, there are bound to be more, such as The Solomon, the king who rules with wisdom and intelligence, whom the people favor due to his fairness; or perhaps The Edward, a king who rules because the true king is off fighting a war, and makes a mess of the country while his brother is gone. I'm seeing awesome potential for a scroll.

But a good concept and reference. It sparked some good ideas, in me at least. Go to Comment

The Khufu
This life is simply preparation for the next. A large percentage of the kingdom's resources are dedicated to building an enormous monument and tomb for when this king eventually passes. He is a decent ruler, but his reign will not stand out in the minds of the people; he will be remembered only by his tomb.

The Cleopatra
In order to keep the kingdom free, this monarch is willing to do anything - and I do mean anything. She freely offers her body to powerful men in order that she too might gain influence. The common people, of course, know nothing of this, though the nobles are well aware and have mixed feelings on the matter.

The Constantine
The gods of old are pushed aside at the command of this newly-converted monotheistic king. As temples are torn down or rededicated to the new deity, many convert either out of reverent zeal or desire to save their rank in the kindgom. Other, however, stubbornly resist and outright ignore the king's will. Go to Comment

Not a big fan of 30 anything, but I like this one! I think its the historical headers that jump out and endear me to the piece. I'll agree with B9, this is my favorite of the thirties.

nice work! Go to Comment

Ah yes. This is the one that originally got my mind to wondering how many different ways I could go with a 30! Go to Comment

The is a long list of rulers with little expansion on or exploration of the rulers or the governments they created. I enjoyed the quick review of mytho-historical characters, and while it is tempting to argue your view of Mussolini or whether a Plato, King could be disinterested in politics and still be interested in being a good leader, those are only disagreements of phrase or word choice. Your points are made clearly Go to Comment

The Baron:



This King took an oath loyalty to another King before he conquered his current Kingdom. He is still a landed Baron in another Kingdom, responsible for taxes and duty bound to obey his King. But he is also a King in his own right and the interests of his two realms may come into conflict.

A fantastic 30 -- extremely useful in its elegant simplicity. Taking actual historical figures and distilling them to brief archetypes make them immediately accessible. Anyone can adapt these to their game. I'm also glad that you left the names as-is -- this way there is just enough detail to be useful, but can still look up more about them if we were curious.

A great scroll, though it looks like it needs a wee bit of cleaning. Go to Comment

And I thought him to be a bit unrealistic, when it's a real-world shark. :)

Nice work in putting a creature into a new enviroment it and creating something unexpected! Go to Comment
