It could be somewhat sentient land then that serves a purpose. Perhaps it comes up in great need for the desperate to travel across as a raft, or has delayed the ships because of a great storm or dangerous creature down river or something. It just needs a thought to hang on. Go to Comment

We have a river controlled by a dam nearby and I spent a few days on it and took a boat up and down it during "low tide" which was a solid 10+ foot difference. High tide and the current was pretty dang strong. This seems to be just a salt water version of that. I would imagine there would be lots of these types of things up and down the entire waterway if the water does go up and down.

I am having trouble grasping the significance of it, even with the lost NPCs hook.

Now, if it was the land that actually rose, and not the water dropping, and it moved about...that might be something..... Go to Comment

Meh, I get really tired of large creatures as islands, no offense.
I loved the marshlands in Savannah and was amazed at how life can regain footing after a bad storm, a completely clear island is slowly taken over by plant life, even in those salty conditions, also love the sea-plants that are made hardier by the addition of salt, absorbed with the water through the roots.
I was thinking how frustrating those swamp loggers get swinging axes and working with chainsaws in the water, combined with something like the creature in the waste disposal on the Deathstar.
But I do like the idea of big creatures that have no discernible way to camouflage or hide, such as really low water, still being able to hunt in silence. Think giant water snake or really dexterous water dragon.
Jellyfish caught while the trees are revealed, still lashing out or grabbing prey, a really long tentacle from a beastie a mile away, a few ideas there.
Will try to develop more?! Go to Comment

Clearing the Way
PCs are conscripted or hired into a crew to sail out to the spit while it is somewhat revealed by the tide and proceed to cut it down. A good swath is taken out by the medium sized work crew before the water reclaims all but the canopy, but when not all of the workers are accounted for do the PCs question or search for the missing?

"I thought I felt something swim past my legs, but it was probably just some fishies"

What is in the water near the Gristwood Landing?

Despite being very stubby, a flooding swamp has a lot of potential. It's crowded, chaotic, and wet. It does need something extra, though. Jellyfish or hydromantic trees or something.

Oh, and a shipwreck here would be an excellent variation. No dry place to sleep, no fresh water, and beasties in the water. Go to Comment

Okay, a priestly order focused on the sky instead of a specific god, why not. One point that comes to mind immediately is that most of them stay up late, all night long... and have a strangely inverted daily cycle if compared to most of the world. That could produce some nice quirks.

The devices, I'm afraid, need to be researched. You should decide, whether they have telescopes or not (don't have to be very advanced). Either way there will be your intricate models and the far descendants of Stonehenge-like recording of key stellar constellations. You could detect some fantasy additions like magic detectors to recognize the most important events, if it feels appropriate.

Then: Bronsial the Sleepy. An important figure, looks always tired, he famously retires for only one hour a day. Advisor of kings, patient observer and a frequent unofficial speaker of the order, he is all over the place. He resembles a long, slightly wobbling nail, a too large head with the body as an afterthought. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2009-04-19 01:29 PM
Really they should be monks, not priests, as they live for the quiet contemplation of the celestial, not the serving of a community or pantheon.

Are they centered in one place or spread around the world?

How many of them are there? Just a handful or hundreds?

How are they identified? Would you recongize on one the street or just know he is a monk.

Perhaps small device instead the huge ones might be useful. Those along the lines of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antikythera_mechanism

You might have travelling bands of these monks going to observatories like Stonehenge or other standing stones.

Perhaps this order is actually the pawn of an elder god that can only be free of its prison when the right allignment of things in sky occurs.

Perhaps these are the survivors of a religious group that stopped on eof the above. They are constantly checking the night sky for signs that someone else might be releasing something. Go to Comment

a) Celestial Sky? Are you aware that Celestial is derived from the latin word 'coelum' meaning... sky.
b) needs a lot of work - you should flesh it out; better you move this to the "in work" section.
c) A sub should be longer than one paragraph. Go to Comment

If you need help on it you should submit it in work, or if you do not get any feedback there try to post it in the forums.

Phaidros's comment on 2012-07-20 08:43 PM
A order of monks would seem more fitting than a priestly order, as they do not seem to actively worship anything. Maybe followers of deities of the sky and of knowledge working together?

Now, regarding the name, it is very tempting to call it the Order of Starry Wisdom.... Go to Comment
