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

This is quite original and very well written. You have provided plenty material for numerous adventures that will keep the players guessing and on their toes.

If nothing else, I must find a use for magma-dwelling dire octopi!

Very nice! As scras said, masterful role reversal going on. I'd love to see some cursed "denizens" of the surface. Go to Comment

I do enjoy seeing someone's logic on how they make decisions and it certainly caught my eye when one of my own posts is a suggestion. I will resolve to put more up. And thank you. Go to Comment

I agree, assuming alien life forms will follow the lines of terrestrial biology is perhaps worse science than chitinous space turtles. I usually stand on the other side of this argument but the Rule of Cool does come into play, and we are already stretching realism and reality with elves, dragons, cyborg commandos and turtles in space.

Why are chitinous space turtles bad science? If on present day earth turtles and reptiles as a whole do not produce chitin does that mean that alien resembling a turtle or a reptile or futuristic animal also similar to a turtle could not produce chitin? Go to Comment

Actually it *is* useful in that now someone who wants to know why you voted high/low on a sub now has a nice reference sheet to get a rough idea of what might have given you cause to HOH their sub or what not, pretty handy really from a informative point of view.

Useful stuff, it's always helpful to get a glimpse into the inner workings of someones vote criteria and what they like to see/not see in a sub.

Be kinda neat to see more of these by various members. Go to Comment

Ah Forganthus, yet another writer has beaten me to it.


The 'How I Vote' theme is a personal favourite of mine, allowing for more transparency and openness on the site.


In my opinion this also allows for better feedback, and negates/lessens the negative feelings that some authors have when they feel they have been given a lower score than they deserve.


One thing I'm not too fond of personally is when people 'peer vote'.


Hmm, I think I've enough of a comment to finally finish my own version of this. All in all a good contribution to the site.


+3.0 = good sub.


+0.5 = usefulness.


Overall rating: 3.5/5
