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

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

You could go caveman.

Nothingness - Air and everything you can't see
Everything - All you can see and touch
Darkness - That which is unknown. Counts stuff under the mountain and deep in the water as well as the night.

Concentrate on colors and let them categorize the elements

Red - fire
Blue - water
Green - trees and grass/nature
Brown - dirt and earth
White - clouds/air
Grey - metal and mountains

Found a cool Greek Site that I can't resist adding.

Earth is Dry and Cool
Water Cool and Moist
Air Moist and Warm
Fire Warm and Dry

Quote from: "http://abyss.uoregon.edu/~js/ast123/lectures/lec01.html"
In a seemingly unrelated discovery, Euclid, a Greek mathematician, proved that there are only five solid shapes that can be made from simple polygons (the triangle, square and hexagon). Plato, strongly influenced by this pure mathematical discovery, revised the four element theory with the proposition that there were five elements to the Universe (earth, water, air, fire and quintessence) in correspondence with the five regular solids.

Elements had a natural tendency to separate in space; fire moved outwards, away from the earth, and earth moved inwards, with air and water being intermediate. Thus, each of these five elements occupied a unique place in the heavens (earth elements were heavy and, therefore, low; fire elements were light and located up high).

Moon is a good thread killer.

He can barrage the thread leaving nothing else to be said.

As an aside, elemental enthusiasts shouldn't forget the Elemental Affinities - the exotic ways of describing a character's attributes.

A more philosophical look at "elements"...

Binding force- "Wholeness", "holding-together", the element which causes things to be whole, to stick together, to combine, to stay in one place.

Deconstructing force- "Partiality", "falling-away", the element which causes things to be partial, to fall into pieces or crumble, to split away from each other, to repel, and to move.

Increasing force- "Complexity", "extending-outward", the element which causes things to increase in size or number, to grow outward, to move outward (out of itself), to multiply, to enlarge.

Decreasing force- "Simplicity", "shrinking-inward", the element which causes thigns to decrease in size or number, to shrink, to move inward (into itself), to decrease exponentially, to diminish.

Now, I'm not sure how you would implement those, and they cross over in many places... But whatever. Go to Comment

Well, when I was imagining it, the image I had in my mind was this:

There's a bunch of grey dust. It suddenly flurries together into a grey cube, and it's cracks vanish (binding force). Cracks suddenly develop, and the whole thing crumbles to pieces (deconstructing force). The cube reforms. Now, it begins to grow and spawn smaller cubes and split itself off into a multitude of cubes (increasing force). Then, the cubes begin to shrink and diminish into themselves, some by pieces, others exponentially (decreasing force).

I have no idea how that helps, but... Go to Comment

I don't know if this is significantly different from the other system I gave, so I'm not going to really flesh it out, but...

-Rising energy (pulls up- air)
-Descending energy (pulls down- water)
-Central energy (keeps still, keeps together- earth, stone)
-Turning energy (constant motion- can't think of a good example)
-Split energy (when rising or descending pulls on central, it creates split- fire is an example of this) Go to Comment
