I started reading this days ago, almost two weeks, (my free time being such that I can barely finish 250 words of unwork related text) and the ideas and stories in this have been bouncing around my head ever since.
I love the iceberg fleet, the attacking the glacier, the horrific birds that lay their eggs in peoples skulls and the even more horrific zombies that look fill their empty guts with one's fresh warm entrails. Equally intriquing is the notes of culture provided, the peoples who won't use gold, distrust free standing Yurts and yet in some part of the collective psyche there is a love for this country: in the idea that if you are strong enough a winter goddess will be come one's consort.
You guys have given us an impressive list. I could see this published as like a novelity coffee table book. My parents had books such as this when I was kid, artistic folios of imaginary worlds, and of course there was the smashed fairy book and the more recent books about dragons and stuff that the kids read. If you guys could team up with an artist this would could make a really cool tome or itself a website worth exploring.

I'm absolutely loving this. I was wondering how well it would turn out when we discussed bits and pieces of it, but it has surpassed my wildest dreams. This is a glorious collection that could be used to jump-start an entire setting with very little difficulty.
This is amazing. Each one could be an entry on its own. They range from horror, implanting their broodlings in us, to comedy (Mooks), to classic sci-fi goodness (Tiresians). Well done. You also some nice opening lines for most of em. Go to Comment

Not every prophecy needs to be meaningful to effect a game. In the Lord Dunsany play, The Golden Doom, a child's scrawl has an entire kingdom struggling to puzzle out what sinister prophecy it portends.
