Very surreal and intriguing... I too thought of Soundgarden when first trying to visualize Unthar. Go to Comment

You have quite a way with words, Echo! I will second val's comment, and oh, the concept itself, the SUN OF THE DEAD, is brilliant! (no pun intended). Will use this in next weekend's table-top somehow.

Top notch! Go to Comment

I have given 5s to things I thought were cute or made me laugh, but this one seems deserving of much more than a 5.  It is a wonderful thing to have in game world, a mark of strangness and horror but not evil. Excellent.

This is a very odd comment. Why does the story have to have any mundane counter part? When you deal with Gods and the supernatural there are going to be ineffable concepts.

Also you use the word science incorrectly. Science is a description of the natural world through experimentation and analysis of data. If the natural world described in this post has different laws and different forces then our natural world then the conclusions science would reach would not suggest the existence of planets or stars (as you suggest, and the star may not be light years it way, it may be something a bird could reach). A scientist in this world maybe able to measure Unthar's power or describe the scenarios necessary for his appearence, but what if stars as we know them don't exist in this universe? What if the world was flat, what if the physics of the world was defined by the content of earth, fire, water and air in each substance? Go to Comment

Awesome - this is something to hang a campaign about. It could be the sole source of undead and monsters in an otherwise 'normal' world.

Really well done sir!

I do wonder what this actually refers to (all stories refer to somethig mundane or are compelte fabrications.) Is there a actual 'darker, sickly, star' that is in a complet arrangement with it's solar system? (Like say two stars rotate around each other, each with a system of there own, the third star is some light years distant (say 2) and has the inhabited planet around it, and a fourth star is distant/dim and sufficently rare to be the only one in the planet's sky that it is indeed considered a 'bad omen'? (This fits with the 'the skies glow darkly, strange constellations are visible' bits.))



I guess I'm wonder the science behind this entry.



 



Or maybe it's fabrication and myth.. then why the plot hooks that involve the sun's apperance?



 



I'm just confused by this entry.. too much myth.. not enough backing it up.

Wait, so it's a demiplane of it's own connected to some 'world of the dead'? (With 'suns' moving on a 'sky' (merely a 'outer layer' of a demiplane?)

I just want to know the cosmology. (I have a setting that combines Scifi and Fantasy and it means I need* to know the 'explination' being things. It's made my view of things become more 'reality' affixed.) Go to Comment

4.5/5

Just when you think you've read some of the most mind-bending material here, more are added.

Well done Echo :) Go to Comment

I like the sun.  Everyone likes the sun.  It'd be a pretty cool centerpiece for any campaign.  Or dinner table.



I'm left wondering, though, at the nature of Unthar.  He/It is a being of godlike power and sentience, but all of his ambitions? seem to resemble the motivations of a gerbil I used to have: escape my cage, run around for a bit, and then get caught and put back in.



I'm not bothered by it.  Gods are supposed to be inscrutible, sometimes.  But the sub leaves more room for development, which I am thankful for.



Maybe Unthar actually has the mind of a gerbil?  Maybe he's friendly, naive, and just wants to hang out with his siblings?  Or maybe he's plotting thier murder (I would like to see the suns fight in the sky, please)?

Stunning. Harull would make a great campaign Boss, especially if one of the PCs or someone close to them was a sunchild. Though the sunchildren are intriguing and compelling enough to provide several adventures' worth of material. Well done! 5/5 Go to Comment

Have an xp for the "mind of a gerbil" comment. A friendly, naive, gerbil-like deity whose mere presence causes untold catastrophe makes me laugh. Go to Comment
