Good idea! Not totally sure I understand the "tokens" thing, given that the organization is charitable. Go to Comment

These are not your riverboat gamblers. These are not your Vegas crowd. These are extremely rich and powerful gamblers. They are nobles. They are merchants. They are kings. They have the money to burn (and the ability to make more).

These are your Skulls, Your New Men, your Trilateral Commission, your Round Table, those of wealth and power, who play these kinds of games because they can. And other people are their pawns to their own greed, ambition, and huberis.

Eyes Wide Shut shows a perfect example of such an organization, though they are more about debachery rather than politics, at least in the movie's story.

They are a political organization because these are the only people who can gamble at this level.

I mean who else would have the ability and money to gamble on these things, and the ability to create minion to act upon them.

If you don't like the coding, can you find another one for a group of people who start wars to see who will win? Go to Comment

Note: I am not so fond of the nesting in the new skins. They are hard to read. Maybe they should not nest. Go to Comment

I am sorry, I thought the kind of person who would of been in such an order would of been implicit.

My wondering, is why did you challange a 2.5 rated post? We still have dozens of 2s and less that can and should and eventually will be challanged.

Is this the Strolen version of "the Spielberg Effect"? Go to Comment

Another incomplete post. Why would gamblers create a political organization? I know several and they can hardly manage themselves, and are a far cry from organization of any kind. The bit about the manipulators IS credible though and I think you should play fully upon that theme if you choose to revise this post. Go to Comment

With the new comment, which I think should be added to the description, I have changed my vote. I would also have removed the challenge, but I cannot, and I urge everyone to vote "leave it be". It is now a complete post that is not illogical now that MH has expanded and explained it.

Removing a challenge should be an option! MH showed dedication here. That should be rewarded in several ways.

Now it is a solid setting "society club" of sorts, where the rich rub other rich peoples' backs. Gotta have those. Go to Comment

I nominated it because it was a 2.5 post from you. You are our Grand Master of RPGs and I cannot envision any of your posts below 3.0. If they are they need work per definition and you were too quick in posting them.

Spielberg effect?
Yes.

Hmmm... With all these posts of yours I presume manfred could create a generator using yours only. The RGP system generator ;) Go to Comment

Not bad in context of the codex, but short for a submission. Go to Comment

It is part of a codex of a larger codex/ scroll (Folio?). All the Arth subs are usually freestanding as subs of their own. When the setting system goes live, there will be much Arth out there and supporting links to it all. Go to Comment

Until Strolen allows stubs to be attached to codices, I can't change this into a stub without losing some linkage. Go to Comment

While I like this I think it is sketchy and needs more work. Thus it gets a 2.5 as it now stands. Future work on this will surely be rewarded when I notice change has been made (unless it is a major catastrophe, but you do not normally create anything like a major catastrophe) Go to Comment

I know this was written before the Age of Stubs, but now that this new era has dawned, this sub is a stub if I ever saw one. Go to Comment

I too would like to see this expanded upon somewhat, it's got potential to be a really good piece Go to Comment

Well there are 37 other "common guilds" in Antioch. There are the seven Sea/ River clans which count as guilds here Guilds of the Water. And I never did do the Militia Guild write up. What are you looking for? Go to Comment

Generic but good. I like the guild politics that can be sensed in the description. Lots of plost possibilites and the write up is so generic that they might be fit into any setting with minimal tweaking. Go to Comment

*lurks in from te shadows*

As someone who is working on their guilds, and *cough* game system *cough* again, I realized I never did comment on a lot of subs. This was one I was hoping would enrich my mind as it expanded yet it never did. Crack the whip Moon... dust off the sheet of age and revisit the old. Worry about the new another day. Go to Comment

Interesting. A good listing, but it feels incomplete. I can't put my finger on what it is though... Go to Comment
