Update: My second addition to Decathros. As far as pirates go, this is not terribly original but I have done my best to put my own spin on a well-worn cliche. Go to Comment

I was really torn on this one. But the reason I was conflicted as to what I thought about it, was because it is a really great idea that does not fall into mainstream sci-fi/fantasy,


Because it is so ambitious it feels incomplete. We get the biology of the creatures fairly well and we get their philosophy a little bit, but we don't get a true realization of their personalities or culture. So thus when THE LURKING FEAR comes into play and the SHADOWs OUT OF TIME created by the Vorrkush turns their victims into OUTSIDERs what kind of personality do they bring with them.

Are these Vorrkush philosophers you mentioned running around in human bodies or do the possessed just become drunken multiparous individuals (as they do in your examples)?

If this incompleteness is deliberate than I think perspective should be changed. Because right now their is an omniscient voice and that does justify the gaps in information.

Overall great idea, great addition to Decthros, thanks for writing it up. Go to Comment

You're right, Scras. This sub was actually somewhat inspired by a book on Vodoun that I was reading at the time. I've always found syncreitic religions to be fascinating. Also, thanks for the welcome, Kassy and Scras. It's good to be back. :) Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2014-03-29 12:00 AM
Rather than a Knights Templar vibe, I was left with an impression of tribalism infused with outside faith, much akin to the Voodoun and Santeria cults in the Caribbean, but much more martial in nature, and zealous in faith. I see the anura painting themselves with war paints, but instead of old tribal patterns, they were symbols devoting themselves to Jove, and invoking his power and protection. I enjoyed this read very much, and good to see you back in the Citadel Maggot. Go to Comment

4.5/5

Maggot, the very same? In which case; welcome back?

Loved reading this, and it also reminds me of the Templar's.

Well done :) Go to Comment

I'd like to think that the Lurdi, like most scavengers that feed on carrion, have developed immunities against the pathogens that reside in the bodies of the creatures they eat. Glad you liked it. Their behaviour was actually modelled after that of actual pirahnas,. Go to Comment

It really could use a proof-read, I'll vote then.

If the Eashal ever find out who made these things they will want revenge on the Trench-Dwellers.

"they also tend to occasionally indulge in cabbalism"  Whoa, the Lurdi are into Judaic sorcery?  Cool!



That being my chief problem with this otherwise-extensive and detailed writeup; it badly needs proofreading and editing.  Aside from that, this has a honking lot of useful and thoughtful detail.

Well that was a fun read! Burning hunger, eruptive bloodlust, and you can't even trust your own mother? I think I would die of stress related heart failure alone in the first week. Since they selectively eat the sick and all of their own dead are epidemics common?



Anyway, while the initial concept is simple enough I think that the background makes it really great.
