This is a perfect flavor piece. Something I'd use in a highly fantastic setting (or possibly an alien planet). I might make them a little less watermelon-ey in description, but overall I love this sub. Definitely got a laugh from me, thanks! Go to Comment

This is AMAZING. Super original. Fits very well into any magical setting. Easy to incorporate as a neat side thing or as an adventure driver. Go to Comment

An excellent treatment of the mighty Mansquito, and usable as well. Go to Comment

I've always had a perverse fascination with mansquitos. Juicy info! Thank you. Go to Comment

These strike me as something from those old painting of hell and witchcraft - perhaps the doctors mask from plauge. Love the oddness here:) Go to Comment

Did I mention I think these guys are awesome? They definitely should have a place in the odd back-alleys of your worlds.

Ah, you´ve been reading some Mieville lately, I gather? Still, you´ve given the race a few quite respectable twists of your own, which really boosts this way beyond any form of plagiarism. Very well done! Go to Comment

Actually, I like these guys better than Mieville´s rather dull critters, so well done. I´m a huge Mieville fan, but his creature ideas are rather too unimaginative for my tastes. Good job! Go to Comment

I've never read Mieville, actually. People keep telling me to. But I googled the book (I think) you're referring to. Anopheles is just a major genus of mosquitoes. China and I both need to be more creative with our names, I think.

This dude came from a conversation about genotyping a population by capturing mosquitoes. Cloning, homunculi. . . same potato. Go to Comment

I love Hollowfire and it's presentation and the way the typically human PCs have been cast into the traditional orc role even if they don't realize it. Well done sir! Go to Comment

This is quite cool and usable as a locale for fantasy or sci-fie.

I did a different treatment of radiation in Fantasy with my Forge of Woe submission, http://strolen.com/viewing/The_Forge_of_Woe

Rereading this, my first impression is that it all sounds very 2nd ed AD&D. There's a few good ideas, but the metal-bird people are so. . . ordinary as far as metal bird-people go. Maybe I can spice them up some more. Go to Comment

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.

Excerpt from "The peoples of the world" By Taklamarian court-scholar Guliman Amon.
