The dark version of Jim Carrey's The Mask? :)

A fine cursed item. I found I had to reread a few paragraphs to get the gist of it, which affected the understanding, but overall pretty clear. I also like that you put it in many genres and simple scenarios. Not everything has to be epic and this is a good reminder of the possibility of using it in many different ways.

Useful and yet very dangerous at the same time. 5/5 Go to Comment

The image of the faceless avenger and expeditor of the Id is a classic trope. I can just see Leslie Nielsen screaming at the little girl "Your mind refuses to face the conclusion." (for the kids: that is a reference to the Forbidden Planet the most influential space travel movie until 2001)

But really the visuals are very neat.

What if a group of ruthless individuals get the mask and know what it is? Could they hire actors to go live with the masks for a few days carrying diaries that saying "Man I really wish Goldman-Sacs would drop four points by monday"? Or something like that Go to Comment

An interesting idea for sure. I can see many things coming from this, a tradition of women crossdressing as men, a new tradition of Borakian ceremonial warriors, or even a thing where the woman bearing the sword is referred to as Chrysander and a number, such as when Chrysander VII lead the armies on the northern crusade or when Chrysander XII perished leading a contingent of marines against as island stronghold.

It's a fair criticism. What would you like to see added to fill it out? Go to Comment

The image is quite funny, infants appearing out of nowhere. But the details you explore about what might happen in such a society, as well as the how/whys, make it something more interesting. Well done. Go to Comment

Quirky, I like it! And the explanations (if needed) can range from the silly to the sinister and everything in between. Go to Comment

A nice idea. But the content here seems to be little more than the idea alone. Go to Comment

It is fine, I was wrong to suggest that it is little more than the idea. It is a fun useful idea with some plot ideas and 'possible' things tossed into to make this a tool as well as idea.



So well done.



However, The post-starts with a description of a village that one might find in a travel log in the world of Hairy trees. But you don't realize a village in the write up, and with no resolution, narrative or strong imagery (aside from the teaser) this write up doesn't paint a picture or tell a story. Thus you have a bit of false advertising with the title cause we don't get a village, we get the baby idea. It could be the apartment building of baby cabinets or the space station of baby bulkheads.



But it is a FANTASTIC idea, this plot device could be used to explore issues of affection versus paternity, racism, maternal instincts, the right to have a child versus the ability to raise a child, the fear of being saddled with a family or the inexplicable nature of life itself. I would love to colab on a bigger write up.

Like Axel, I think maybe a bit more. But the idea... it's wacky and zany, and deserves a good vote.

You use names I'd associate with Fantasy worlds. Are all of the babies human? Are they all of uniform ethnicity? Or are those random as well? Or appropriate to the finder? Of course, I could decide for myself, but I'm really very lazy. Go to Comment

I like the fact of how straight the scenario is played because of how easy it would be to make this straight camp. Go to Comment

An interesting take on antigravity, though it requires a very specific worldview.

Another interesting feature, short but sweet. One of those things you kick yourself for not thinking of. I would love to play in a campaign world littered with these doctor Seuss like locations and anti-logical, fairy-tale like physics rules. Go to Comment
