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

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 05:17 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

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

I was afraid the orphan thing would seem cliche, but it made more sense in my head. No dragon would accept a half-breed, and the drow would want nothing to do with him. Perhaps you're right about him looking too fierce to live in standard communities, though. I'll have to rethink him a bit. Go to Comment

In my world, dragons are usually shapeshifters, so it's not implausible (although anything sexual with a drow is kind of icky). Go to Comment

Heh. Okay.

So Thaxen comes from my high school era of RPing. He was supposed to be an adversary/antithesis of a elf/blue dragon hybrid. Clearly, I didn't get much beyond that stage in my thinking.

As Scras and Forganthus suggested, he obviously needed some more background and characterization. The "orphan to avenger" thing has been done to death, of course. So what could save him? Is there anything salvageable in this guy? Go to Comment

Current comments cover off all I could say, apart from the half drow half dragon being an interesting idea. Go to Comment

Forganthus's comment on 2012-06-05 04:38 PM
I echo what's been said. A little bit cliche, but well written.

Does he have any goals? How does he feel about dragons and drow? How does he feel about street-urchin orphans? I hope he gives them money. Go to Comment

I agree with Murometz and Scras... I don't really care that they wouldn't work in the real world. That doesn't matter to me. If I cared about that, I wouldn't have magic.
Great idea.

4/5. Go to Comment
