A neat take on elves, but I would think this would be an irreconcilable weakness compared to any race that could learn. Even orcs would outdo them given time.

I don't think I'd make my elves this way, but this concept is still really cool. Perhaps if I used elves of Tolkinesque power. Go to Comment

Not to criticize - just happened to me...

...If they do not learn, how did they "learnt" of their new fear of being surpassed?
Anyway, excelent submission, as always. ;) Go to Comment

Lyrics: 3 Dog Night

Wash away my troubles, wash away my pain
With the rain in Shambala
Wash away my sorrow, wash away my shame
With the rain in Shambala

(chorus)
Ah, ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Everyone is helpful, everyone is kind
On the road to Shambala
Everyone is lucky, everyone is so kind
On the road to Shambala

(repeat chorus)

How does your light shine, in the halls of Shambala (2xs)

I can tell my brother by the flowers in his eyes
On the road to Shambala
I can tell my sister by the flower in her ear
On the road to Shambala

(repeat chorus)

How does your light shine, in the halls of Shambala (2xs)

(repeat chorus reprise)

In short, it is a bubble of reality where slightly different rules apply. Go to Comment

Hm. It's solidly done, with plenty of hooks. It feels awfully generic, but there are enough places to rebrand it to your own. Generic is not always bad.

Much of your linkage around this subject does not work, I had to break out the search engine to understand what I was reading - it made it more difficult to comprehend.

The holde link Doesn't work, and searching for it all I found was a sanctuary for demons. It's a rare and special place, okay, but what the meaning of that secret specialness is supposed to be evades me. Go to Comment

I like, the vibe is there, the challenges on the road are solid. I like the Shambala is a real place, and it is both what you expect (a holy place) but it is also somewhat realistic (rock pile, farms, etc). Kudos. Go to Comment

Shambala inspired a writer to invent Shangri-La, so why not inspire a sub. Good work Moon, I like what you've done with the ancient legend. It certainly works as dangling worm for PCs. Go to Comment

I think you just took a wonderful piece of Buddhism, and made it unique and fantastic, while still retaining all the emotional and philosophical pieces that come together to make the legend of Shambala so important. I like it.

In brief: Involve characters with drama, rather than arbitrary situations. Secondly consider that all actions have consequences.

I have a few complaints. Mainly, the article, informative as it is, is dry and the paragraph formatting is choppy and inconsistant. The Roddenberry quote is interesting, the italicised additions are not really necessary. The rest of the submission is IMHO rather basic information. I could be wrong on that account though.

Chaosmark's comment on 2009-01-18 04:27 PM
Honestly, I agree with Scras' comment, but not his vote. In the past, you've talked about PCs having goals and the GM including them in the game where appropriate, but this is the first time I think you've really gone in-depth on that. I rather enjoyed this one, even though it seemed a smidge dry. Basic isn't always a bad thing: we all need to go back to the basics sometimes, simply because we didn't pick it up the first time through, we're just now learning it, or because with more experience we can understand and apply it better.

It is a stub alright. Not really Firefly, a generic location to put into any spacey setting. Not much to go by but a good base for more. Go to Comment

Why would anyone pass through a strange, somewhat dangerous area? As was hinted, some avoid it, some don't. But let's see:

- because they are in a hurry (want to get fast _to_ or _from_ something?)
- because they want to stay undetected
- because they are curious
- because of a malfunction they drifted into the area
- because they don't know any better (or someone 'updated' their database)

...which are all perfectly valid reasons. What'd be the fun in a game, if all journeys were constant and safe? This region does not seem too dangerous, but it doesn't need much to make for an outstanding adventure background. As long as it is usable to some, it is worth considering. Go to Comment

Kassil's comment on 2008-11-09 07:06 AM
Mreh.

It's the typical Dead Zone in space, with a few specific little details to flesh it off that.

Given that it's apparently based off of Firefly, I'll leave my nitpicks about the veracity of it aside; video media producers have never been particularly good about paying attention to that kind of detail because the majority of the audience will be at least as clueless. Go to Comment
