Thanks for the HoH submissions, guys. I'm glad you liked the item.

Brother Hural's position is debated by the faithful. Some see him as a martyr, but others believe his end was the wrath of Saint Vedast punishing the monk for some offense. So while some see him as a hero who died honoring his patron, others view Hural as a fallen man who did not heed the saint. Go to Comment

Wow! Very impressive background information. I love how the true properties of the icon lie not with the deity, but with the shard planted within. Well written! Go to Comment

My one comment is why do they have gills on their necks.

How do they run "air" across their gills out of water? Without a bellows/ lung arrangement, they should soon sufficate. Most critters with neck or dorsal gills need to have pronounced neck motion (when still) or constant forward motion to run water across them. Go to Comment

This is a good solid minor race post. It is not really a HoH winner for me, but it might be for another.

More people should look at it. Then they should do a minor race post this good. Go to Comment

Iain's comment on 2006-02-06 06:07 PM
I quite liked it. What else do they use the Tan'S'krae for? Is it involved in courtship, or in ritual ceremonies?

Do they, like true amphibians, lay their eggs in the water and pass through a larval stage (like tadpoles)? If so, what is their attitude to these larvae? Do they protect them or do they just have lots and have many of them get eaten; essentially not considering them true people until they have turned in to adults.

Also, although I liked the idea of them not being spiritual and thus amazed by sorcery, I found the fact that they didn't have any form of religion slightly hard to swallow, without some more justification. After all, in the real world, we don't have ethereal worlds or sorcery but still, every society (I think) has some kind of religion and worship of deities/spirits/ancestors/etc. However, that might just be me thinking this.

I would like to know more about how the amphibean S'krae smelt and forge metal. I would think that the heat and dryness associated with metal working would be anathema to them. Go to Comment

Updated: Added "Ve'laan" category, added paragraph about S'krae breeding, added info about S'krae religion (or rather lack thereof). Go to Comment

Tan'S'krae is used in any formal situation. Weddings and mating ceremonies would probably be included, along with negotiating an offense to honor.

I have added a paragraph under "Society" to answer your questions regarding S'krae young.

I also added a few sentences about their lack of religion. In sum, it is a cultural thing, stemming from their ancestors' loss of faith following the great drought that killed most of their population. Go to Comment

Erm... 'Cause I'm a lousy biologist. :-D

Point taken on the gills. In accordance with the laws of science, and since they're not exactly vital to the submission anyway, I've removed the gills. Go to Comment

This is a great minor race. They have enough details and hooks to be quite usable.

manfred's comment on 2006-02-05 04:17 AM
OK. He is an orphan, super-powerful (or at least super-skilled) half-monster with dubious morals that does as he pleases and wanders the world to... ummm, have fun or what. Sorry but this feels definitely too cliche for me.

Where does he put all that money in? And, how long does it take until he is known in certain circles ("Thaxen? Oh yeah, good fighter but watch his sticky fingers.") Having several names with a unique look helps only for so long, too. Besides, I wonder if he would not be considered demonspawn or something evil, and denied entry to 'decent' towns.


The write-up is all fine, it is the idea that repulses me. May be personal preference though. Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2006-02-05 08:06 AM
I think Thaxen would be a fine character, there is adequate beckground. Some his his attributes are rather cliche, especially the orphan part, did someone kill his draconic parent, of was he orphaned by abandonment? I think the fact that he is half-drow and half dragon detracts from the post, and to echo Manfred's thought, his description sounds quite fierce and evil looking, i dont imagine he would be found in most lawful, or good aligned communities. Orcs might be more forgiving... Go to Comment
