The Unexpected, especially the balanced unexpected, always has a great inpact. (GMing/ Writing tip 87)

To be honest, "The Hand" is a tiny fraction of The Stars, and has a modest impact upon the world.. almost nothing in comparison to the effect the Stars have upon the world. Still, the explanation for The Hand's Powers and their "cover" make the organization effective. Go to Comment

So these are the ninja that cover the loyal physician who really killed the noble lord.

This is a good reversal, that unexpected twist you didn't consciously see, but might of suspected. Go to Comment

I really like the interplay between these sides. Great job! (I like the Stars healing side more though). Go to Comment

Overlooked, perhaps, but not forgotten. A simple concept, that makes much sense with the hidden parts. Good work. Go to Comment

A little Bump for an organization of note, now that the Orbs are popular again. Go to Comment

Even healers have to live from something. To me it seems to go along with their clerical appearance - in exchange for healing, you don't necessarily have to pay, but can perform a service "for the cause". It may be something directly for the order, or some "good deed", both are understandable and support their public image. The Stars may trade it for other services in turn. Go to Comment

Wait, I can't ever write something that is popular. Someone else must of written The Corvus sequence. Go to Comment

See how the other half lives... :) I like the fact that these are not just goody goody healers who have no other function than repairing sloppy adventurers. Go to Comment

No idea why it has so few votes - this is an excellent organization to add to a campaign. The Star is easily adapted to other campaigns. Go to Comment

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
