Yeah, I'm with Strolen.  Sure, it's a stereotype - and how many stereotypes do we routinely employ, anyway? - but this EXPLAINS the stereotype.  Too many people are far too ready to turn their noses up at subs that don't hit minimum (but undefined) levels of Quirky!, Flashy! or Unique!



Beyond which, c'mon, folks ... what's the psychology behind an adventurer, anyway?  Who goes off from living nice, safe, quiet lives to run off and deal with horrors on a regular basis, sleep on the ground in haunted ruins and pretty much be assured of an early, violent death unless you have at least a little crazy in you?

The name drew me in, and while Infernal Cities are about as common as trailer parks, this one seems to stand out. I can get a feel for the place, I can almost imagine the way it would smell, a sort of hot greasy stink with an undertone of wet rot. Very nicely done Grey. Go to Comment

I like the idea of a haven of evil nonchalantly existing in the mortal realm; it makes for a good place for a villain to hide, for example.
What I'd like to see added is a history of this place - how it came to be. Go to Comment

Very good. A villian could use his or her own evilness as money. Go to Comment

I am amused.

It is just strange enough of a classically fantasy to have that fresheness to it. In some ways, it pains me. In other ways, it is a fun character. Go to Comment

He reminds me of Thor. And the theif who stole his backpack would be in for a nasty shock. Go to Comment

I like him! Had a similar character, though as a berseker, he was the bear.. Go to Comment

The bear in the backpack is a bit strange, but then so is the whole character. Strangeness really seems to be his strong point, actually. He's an ambulatory boulder of muscle and goodwill with the brains of an addled child who just so happens to be the lord of a town. He can be predictably unpredictable. Go to Comment

Reminds me of Haggar the Horrible. I like this character. The bear in the backpack is a bit strange, but I am intrigued by the idea (what else can I put in this backpack?). Go to Comment

A new view on Orcs (not a new take, as they are traditional orcs with a different culture).

Edit note: if you could put an extra line between the paragraphs. It would make the submission easier to read.

In terms of content, I like it.

Carnivore mounts, okay.. fantasy trope.. I can deal with that.

I just have one issue.. metal forging and nomadic peoples. Even the West African metal workers were semi-nomadic, as having a forge and proper anvil requires a great deal of space/ weight/ and installation investment. Even the West African Metal Worlkers, who did beautiful work, tended to work small because of their equipment.

So you will need to flesh this out or find some way for them to move a true forge. (It is a large sled that they shlep with a team of these creaures?) Perhaps their magic users are metal smiths (harkening back to West Africans), thus using magic to make things with less material gear. Instead of the banging of a hammer, the sound of an odd vibration, like a didgeridoo, comes from the magi as he forges the Great War Sword Go to Comment

A great flavor of Orc. Just different enough to be interesting.

There could also be the occasional small tribe of orcs that specializes in forging with semi-permanent smithies.

A nice take on Amazonian Orcs, and gives a great feel for their culture for those new to using Orcs in their campaign, and can make a nice resource to flesh out the orcish background of a half-orc char. Go to Comment

Updated: Moon pointed out a bit of a problem related to how they manage to make metal goods and yet are nomadic. I have fixed the problem. Go to Comment

Purple deer have begun to appear near the ruins of a fallen city, or other place of power. Hunting the deer is absurdly easy, as their coloration makes them easy to see. The heros prepare a feast from a freshly killed deer find out several hours later that the meat of the new purple deer is poisonous. This can range from cramps and vomiting to the truly sinister and lethal.
