I like all the gods, and it is really complete mythos.  I am big fan of gods that exisist whether you want them to or not.



An side:



But I am curious about the tone and perspective you use when you write these posts.  Did you have a narrator in mind or a source text?  You aren't really writting from a third person meta-game stand point, but it is not academic write up either.  We spoke brieflly about this before i know, perhaps this post-modern idea of needing to know or wanting to know who wrote something is just that.  In the Torah there isn't a narrator, and perhaps people didn't ask that questions of there myths.  Yet what is your take on it? 



 



I found the last bit about the war of the god hurried and undetailed. I also never got a day in the life idea about what is was like to be a mortal in the 1st era.  I know the true "modern" mortals were around until the gods fully equipped them, but we learn little about the people of the time. 



Again a nice story of the gods.

This has the epic feel of the Silmarillion and is a wonderful work. It is, however, an intimidating read that could benefit by formatting. That said, still amazing. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2005-11-08 02:31 AM
It is somewhat fleshed out. Very clear in presenation. The Nobles doing things for thrills is a bit cliche.

Of course, these "kids" will eventually leave their little group. Nobody would betray it, oh no, that would be wrong. However, they will be moving on to there noble duties.

Though one thing, these nobles will eventually be "tapped" by those intelligencers and special agents of the crown. A touch of blackmail ("What would your mother think?") and a little appeal to their nobility and patriotism and you will have highly trained infiltration agents at your disposal.

In fact, the king's spymaster might of created the organization as a "farm team" for his own. It has a two edge purpose of training and grading members as well as letting the rougher edges of the nobility get their kicks quietly. Go to Comment

Ah yes I remember this. This was part of an ongoing thread idea in the forums about guilds and such... I will have to edit this here in the near future and see if I can create it the way it should be. Go to Comment

I like the 'farm team' idea Moon. read a book where it had something very similar to it. May have to look into that a little deeper for the next one. Go to Comment

I don't really think the scale was to large as the listed number of members isn't in a single city but in many. It's a vast number of groups through more than a single kingdom. Go to Comment

As Moon said, a tad cliche. They are rich kids slummin' I say tad because this has an original 'oomph' of its own. Having said that, the story and detail is very good! The last plot hook would obviously make a great 2 part scenario. 1-catching them 2- oh crap Kings nephews, now what?

reminds me of a film I saw recently, Hungarian I think. Cant recall the name, but I'll remember tomorrow. Rich kids would break in homes of the even riccher, and rearrange furniture, drop sofas in pool, stack up beds and chairs, that sort of thing. Harmless anarchy they called it. They would leave a note.."Your Days of Plenty are Numbered". Not the same thing I know, but same vibe for me. Well done Mourn! Go to Comment

This is interesting, though the scale of the organization seems severely too high to have any chance of secrecy. I really like the idea though. Go to Comment

Both posts need to be read to get the most out of them. You can miss the fact that this is just another part of the same moral code. Still well done and well presented. Two paws up. Go to Comment

First I read the Tenets of Knighthood and liked them, but thought they were nothing special. Then I read this and realised that beforehand I was reading on one face of a coin. Together, these two make an excellent post - I love the idea of two rival orders (or rather, amalgations of orders) of knights and especially the fact that those of shadow also have a strict code of honour, which overlaps with that of goodness. For example, Knight of Shadow and a Knight of Goodness would both agree on the formality of the challenge - to outsiders, there might at first sight be little difference. Go to Comment

A nice amoral code that fits well with its counterpiece. Well done. Go to Comment

Iain, that was their purpose. For every whisper there is a yell. For every dawn their is a dusk. For every good there is an evil. You can't have one without the other.

Update: Fixed a few spelling errors and fixed the Justice Tenet as it was a hash of the Knighthood and was ill typed. Go to Comment

This is meant to be an opposite to the Tenet of Knighthood and yet not quite the opposite, and in there lies a refreshing twist, methinks. Go to Comment

Everything by its nature defines its opposite. A nice concept to compliment the other. Go to Comment

The other side of this social system seems to have generated a great deal of buzz, yet this is a clear and well defined code. Well done.
