3/5 because of the sketchy appeance. It would not be difficult to use it as a template. The general idea on the main site, however, seems to be to provide a thorough background (for the item, as well as the organization).
In addition: there is too much of an "Excalibur look and feel" about the item for my taste. Altars are cool and invaluable, but these have been seen before in other incarnations. (The aforementioned Excalibur (in its stone), the Dragon orbs of Krynn/Dragonlance(resting on their altar/pedestal), etc...) Go to Comment
I must admit that a sword is prone to getting lower grades from me, exactly because they are so difficult to make original. I think there are very few swords that has not already been made in a 1000 incarnations.
So such items lose their 1 point for originality. The last point (4->5) I reserve for truly spectacular items.
Nothing wrong with a 3. I just stated why I voted as I did. I hate when there is no feedback to an item. Everyone ought to get feedback. Go to Comment
Interesting if typical fantasy device but, well, too vanilla. This needs editing and a rewrite before I'd even give it a vote. Of all the related subs, the fire gems were the strongest in this regard, but it still doesn't make these entries seem any less plain. Needs another pass. Go to Comment
This post is really nothing without the others. All four posts that are linked together are required to be viewed before any of them make great sense. In reality, they are one post with four different ways to access it. Go to Comment
Oh, I like him. He's got so many possibilities, and I can well imagine that some of his various enemies are driven to distraction by him. The inevitable assassination attempts would be interesting, since he's like this all the time. He reminds me a lot of Captain Jack Sparrow, only without the associated exaggerated ego. He WILL be used. Go to Comment
An interesting character to have at a court - not a paramount of goodness, just an honest and decent man who thinks people shouldn't hurt others and all'd be good.
Through him, many a plot could spring into being, and manya player will like him. Go to Comment
I can see this man as a big loving father! An his sharp tongue to keep him out of the lines only makes him ever more so of a funny person. It is truly not his fault that he stumbled into all this trouble. It only happened to him. No wounder Lady Julia is the way she is. Keep going with this one! Go to Comment
“Lay thee patiently and still upon the ground, contemplating the Leper Star in the firmament, 'neath a crescent moon, ‘midst the graves of a boneyard 'til the G’na-Shennu come crawling up from the foetid earth. Fear them not. Let them rage about thee, casting ghoul-dust from their chalky talons and scalps,'til they calm, and so begin to whisper their secrets. Then shall they solemnly withdraw into the earth once more, in peace."
