Interesting-does the mental damage regenerate if the user survives? Go to Comment

I like this item, and not knowing anything about Talislanta (apart from No Elves, right? :)) I saw nothing game-specific about it.

Good Job! Go to Comment

Um.

Er.

I simply can't imagine the first one to try this.

"What did you make Urk."
"I dunno."
"I bet you your toenails that Mikey would eat it."
"You are on."

What an explosive idea! :)

Goes well with the image of critters and cannon fodder - they need ways to survive the harsh persecution by other races... and sometimes it means to sacrifice a few of them. Go to Comment

Goblin suicide bombers, indeed. And more, if a tribe was known for explosive tendencies (and, no doubt, breeding like rabbits) when cut, the sightof one holding a dagger to his own throat would likely be enough to set off panic attacks in any locals. Go to Comment

There's no need to use magic; there are a fair number of substances that can combust on contact with others - in this case, it combusts on contact with something in the air. Go to Comment

Honestly, long after making this, my guess would be that the key component is the mixture of oxidized goblin blood and stomach acid; the other stuff is merely superstition on the part of the goblin witch doctor and alchemists. Mind you, this stuff can /only/ exist like this in a high fantasy world with a fair tolerance of absurdity.

Fireblood Elixir would likely be a less absurd way consideration of the Potion. Go to Comment

Goblin bombs, yes. I am less pleased by this entry these days. The explanation behind it is lacking. Go to Comment

If they're Kuramen goblins, the first one to try it was either the inventor, who was convinced that THIS batch would do what he wanted, or else it was someone or something chained to a table in a medical lab as a 'test subject'. Go to Comment

I see the Fireblood Elixir as a somewhat more logical and less inexplicable version of this potion. Go to Comment

Goblin Bombs. Woohoo! I like the stink factor. It is a good self deception for the humans and other races. Go to Comment

It's a very unique and origonal idea for a roleplaying setting, and I give you tons of props for that. However, the ending explanation felt a little rushed. Isn't it a little unrealistic that spider venom and goblin blood would make someone explosively sensitive to impact? I can imagine the formation of flammable gases, but for an explosion, you need not only that, but fire. Where does the fire come from?

I think this would work better if the explosion was less "James Bond Shoots a Tanker"-like, and more of a "hard" explosion. Hmmm...ok, I'm being really specific here...but if you could just hear me out - Instead of a huge fireball, think more of a huge bang and a shockwave of air. Nothing fantastic to look at from across a field, but still deadly as heck for anyone nearby.

That, or you could just use magic to explain the fireball. Anyway, despite my nitpicking, I thought it was overall good work! Go to Comment

Quite an interesting idea. I liked it, overall. Be nice to know more specificly how it was made, or what happens if something goes wrong in the creation process. (I would think that it would have to be a very specific recepie to get the exactly correct chemical reaction each time.)

As far as how they explode without fire...Well, in battle blades, armor and shields often clash, causing sparks. And, there are explosives that will ignite without fire. Some react to air that way. Anyway, the way I picture it is more of a napalm type substance.

Nice work. :) Go to Comment

This is perfectly gobliniod in its nature - using one of the few advantages that race has.

I see no need to into its details or how it works - its a potion in a fantasy realm. Where you trying to shoehorn it into modern or sci-fie, then you need to start wiggling.

Good job!

I've been looking for some good sources to further my knowledge of existing Elemental Energies as well as Elementals. This thread is a good well-spring of such info, and so in return I'll add my own 2-bits.

After reading up on Kitsunes and game magics, I've sorted the elements I know of for certain into the following Elemental Zodiac.

The Four Cores:
--Earth: all stone, sand, ground, rock mineral focuses, and solid structure
--Water: all pure liquids, non-molten fluids, currents, rain, and fluid structure
--Wind/Air: all gases, gales, vortexes, clouds/vapor/steams (when touched with water), free movement structure
Fire: all heat, flames, combustion, active structure

The Four Fusions:
--Wood (Earth + Water): all plants and plant based material and/or organisms
--Ice (Water + Wind/Air): all cold, freezing, and things born from freezing
--Lightning (Wind/Air + Fire): all electricity, storms, and electric based powers/forces
--Metal (Fire + Earth): all ores, metallic materials and/or organisms, and metal focused energy

The Two Influences:
--Light: encompasses glows, beams, stars, suns, Heaven, Healing, Life, Angels, Goodness, etc.
--Dark: encompasses shadow, illusions, voids, space, black-holes, Hell, Pain, Death, Demons/Devils, Evil, Primal, etc.

The Three Lords:
--Sound: covers sounds, all sonic based forces and techniques, on up to Cosmic Harmonics and Dimensional Frequencies
--Spirit: covers ghosts, life-force itself, Ki/chi forces, emotions, the very spark of life itself, and the true soul--the very thing that separates the truly alive from the false imitations.
--Time: The Past/Present/Future, the flow of time, age, youth, speed, the ever moving force that without which everything stops and then shatters.

All the other magical energies and forces I've found since either falls directly under one of these 13, or is born from a minor mix of two of them. Go to Comment

Wow! I traipsed all over the 'Net looking for stuff, and was passing thru this site. MY GODS! You guys are amazing! :) Seriously? After being fascinated by all the ideas (MoonHunter, I swear you could be the soul mate of my HP!) I just sat and wished I had a question just so I could watch y'all shine! Your posts were all so good, I just had to take the time and applaud! Go to Comment
