Hard to dislike these wee folk! Some good details.

Although small, houselings carry themselves in a manner more befitting giants. They strut about with their noses held high in the air and a look of unconcerned disdain on their tiny faces. love that sentence!

They remind of the Killmoulis. Down to the saucer of milk. House faeries with elongated snouts, who dwell in miller's homes, helping themselves to the flour, in exchange for minor house-hold services provided.

Anyway, good job. They're cute! Go to Comment

The idea is that the happy feeling projected by the houselings helps the other faeries, the ones that would normally snub them, to overlook their camaraderie with humans a bit. Go to Comment

Actually, you could take them as a replacement for your generic bards and it would be just fine. Go to Comment

I like it, it is quaint and charming, without taking itself too seriously. Well done Col. Drackler! Go to Comment

Nice, nebulous group. I like them. A GM can take the foundation and expand on them if necessary. I love bards, so i like these guys. They maybe need one more point of intrigue or something to make them slightly more memorable, but I can't think of any suggestions at the moment. Maybe something about some unique instruments, or a type of plothook, where all ringmen are somehow drawn in? Not sure.

The three deities and the simple origin of the ringmen is a nice touch. Go to Comment

I agree with Muro - these is something missing, but I can't put my finger on it either. Perhaps a plot hook or two. Go to Comment

Well, this submission shouldn't have been overlooked. I might change the summary tag to make it look more interesting than a list of sins. Go to Comment

Sweet. This one has it. I love it from the name on. A few plot hooks would be nice though, maybe I'm getting lazy over the years. Go to Comment

I like it, and I thought that it was pretty clear that Mal was Mep, but that's just me. Go to Comment

I like these ink-stained critters! I picture them to be purplish.

Anything that starts with, "The type-setters of Ledenburg..." gets my attention. I immediately get a late medieval euro vibe.

Nice touches on them having to obey the printers and the limited lifespans.

I guess my only nagging thought is, why was it so difficult for Ledenburg to get some new ink? Thunderstorm prevented village from making ink? Is ink that hard to manufacture in a printer's society? You know, now that I think about it, i have no idea how ink is made :-)

Anyhoo, that doesn't detract from the interesting lifeforms, but the premise seems slightly contrived. Also, I'm not sure the 7 sins part is effective or necessary for their origin, but no big deal.

all in all, good though! Visiting this place would be fun for PCs Go to Comment

Actually, the seven deadly sins just seemed fitting for the devils, and their appearances just follow from the names. Go to Comment

axlerowes's comment on 2013-01-07 05:45 PM
It is both very new (ink devils) but as the feel of classic morality fables. I found it interesting. But the ending of the story is a let down: the undertaker hangs himself and the town gets all the ink they need.. The idea of the devils taking the ink with them is great, it is allegorical and humorous, i would rather have seen that folded into the narrative. A modernist(ish) take on these would be to have summoned to 19th century, early 20th century ad agency. These ink devils could introduce negative advertising centered around their own sins.
