Cheka Man: They are nomadic enough. Why couldn't they sail away to the seas of Acqua? Use them with my blessings.

Valadar: The RTS feeling is intentional, and I'm glad that didn't get lost completely. They were originally created for use with the Combat Efficiency guidelines (mass combat rules), and intended to blur the boundaries between a nation, army, and ethnicity. You wouldn't believe how many hours I've agonised over linguistic issues with them--even whether to spell 'Gobbley' with one 'B' or two...

MoonHunter: Midianite Trolls are very varied (lots of random rolls) & generally come in large, medium, & small sizes. They are also separated into different ethnicities: Black, Cave, Ice, Rock, & Mountain Trolls, with the Host of Battle as an arguable sixth group. Go to Comment

Excellent! I get a palpable feel for them, and the details are terrific. I'm using these guys.

hi-lite: Though obviously from your world, this troll troupe is easily usable anywhere, anytime. Go to Comment

I read this, I thought it was interesting and I enjoyed the details.



 



 I would have enjoyed to see some more specific notes on their culture and how they relate to each other personally.  You learn a lot from society by who they consider to be a crimminal and celebratity and it is hard to get a feeling for a culture when everything is so even keel.   If you spend you write a story about life at sea no reader will except that it was all smooth sailing.

An evokative image indeed, though the very clear demarkation between unit types gave me a somewhat Real Time Strategy game feel. A unique culture for trolls, and I love the language name 'Gobbely'.

Nicely done! Go to Comment

Added to the Red Herrings codex, where it rightly belongs.

This is a great McGuffin and a piece of "color" for a world. The popular perception vs the academic reality vs the reality is quite an interesting contrast. So very real actually. It is a nice piece for you to drop on us after such a long absence.

The plots that could come from this...

People trying to do things all in an attempt to make a stanza come true, thus ensuring something they really want to happen

And of course people trying to stymie the prophecy.

Some new con man might actually be out there with a "new edition" to be discovered.

Actually it would be interesting that the deities took these two fools and used them as a tool for making their will come to be. So while they should not be prophets, they really are. Go to Comment

Haha! Cool!

Prophecy, (and Profit-cy) are so much fun to use and abuse. I heartily approve. Go to Comment

Originally from Eat your heart out, Nostradamus by Scrasamax
"Every single prophecy ever written will come true, likely exactly as it is written. And chances are, these events will be centered around the characters and the current day. This really clashes with prophecies from the real world as they are wrapped in symbolic imagry and most never actually happen, or are so vague that the events listed could have already happened a dozen times over."


You know you want to do this. Fake prophecy plus cliche plus player-characters equals profit (or prophet...). Since the prophecies are intentionally vague, they can easily seem to fit the pc's perfectly. Most players won't ever see this one coming. Go to Comment

This is quite cool - a book of false prophesies has so much potential!

Hmm, perhaps we could have a scroll of such prophecies that could be grabbed and adapted. Go to Comment

Kinslayer's comment on 2006-01-25 11:16 AM
The rapid growth of the trading post into the current city of Gaslight took place within only a few years. Earlier, it didn't have a name, save only perhaps "that trading post." Any interim name that might have been given prior to Surtsblood & Al Biqa' tapping the gas has long been lost to memory. Changes of government, or major features may cause the locals (and visitors) to refer to a city as a new name. This is not uncommon in Bizzannite cities--where one name is completely replaced by another--as is evidenced by the much more recent (and publicized) transition of Vridtown into Scientius/Darkmouth Emirate. Vridtown had only been known as such for 12 years, as that city's name was changed then from yet another previous incarnation. Go to Comment

The history is too important to this one. It is also pretty dense. However, it explains why the city is lit by gaslight. It does not explain why it is called Gaslight. Wasn't it a city or town there first, that was then built up? Go to Comment

A little too mundane though. Can't really see him being involved in any exciting plots. Still,it is servicable enough for a low level game I suppose. 3/5 Go to Comment

If he is colorblind, how can he then per say tell a fake painting from the genuine one?
Other than that there's nothing too complain about.
A good solid NPC. I liked the rp notes. Go to Comment
