Very nice. The mythological elements are well done and the motives of those involved nicely described. There is enough additional detail to get a good idea of the larger world. Go to Comment

I concure with Chaos here. It has just enough little references to make it possibly worth throwing down in front of players to get them involved with some history. Although I fail to see what his 3rd miracle really was.

Ooo, pilgrimages! I like the vibe of this one. The little story snippets are a good touch, for when your PCs are wondering, "Why the heck do we have to stop here on this pilgrimage?" And in each, there's something still there that can be involved in a subplot.

Ok, I'm not going to get into a debate with you over this in comments, even though I disagree on some points :)

You'll be happy to know though, that "...his daughters violated.." is the only time "i went there" in 65+ submissions.

That out of the way, i wanted a good reason for him to be crying inconsolably. You see, the farmer, not being a modern-day p***y-man, wouldn't be crying because someone ravaged his fields, or even if someone he loved was killed, necessarily. But his daughters being ravaged without him being able to do a darn thing about it, seemed apt and apropos in this case, for his intense sorrow and rage.

Thanks as always for the "overly deep" comment (:p), and I'm glad you like my world. You're welcome to come and play in Haracon, anytime you find yourself near NYC. Go to Comment

I wager there were a few smirks  from the author when he wrote this one (the sad onions). Okay excuse me for one moment



*walks over to a lop sided shed haphazardly leaning against the splendid walls of the Citadel. Axle addresses shed, "One soap box please"*



 But why again do we have to have a rape as the awful crime and tragedy?!  It always smacks of mysogeny when a story teller has to rape somebody to motivate characters or to add emotional weight to an event or story.   I understand it is a terrible event that is all too common, and people are right to enraged by it.  But I think it gets overused in fantasy fiction. Plus the response to the rape in stories and plot line is often about the male character's desire for revenge.  I think the rape-motivation story broke a threshold for me when an author named Ken Scholes published a story about a 50 some year old alternate time Hilter finding the courage to stand against french facists (with the help of Charlie Chaplin and Earnest Hemingway) when he wittnessed the rape of a jewish girl.   A liberal mild mannered Hilter I could stand...but when the author couldn't find another way to explore the importance of political action and the horrors of facism then graphic sexual violence...well I didn't finish the story.  I get that mister Scholes was trying to ruffle some feathers with goatee Hitler, but wasn't the alternate time line enough?  



*Thank you, just place this back in the Citadel's soap box shed please.  Oh the shed is full? Alright well I guess we can toss this one out* 



Okay moving on, this is great, it is really nice when you can have the NPCs doing stuff in your game world, besides serving beers, getting kidnapped and telling vague tales of forgotten swords.  I would love to play in a game world that had this stuff going in the background.

Let's see: a few thousand highly religious followers of the "one true god" reaffirming their faith, cross paths with a party of arrogant, irreverrent adventurers. Hmm, there couldn't possibly be a plot point to be found, could there? :P

While I agree with the basic sentiment that rape is over used in character motivation for fantasy stories (though it has become cliche enough that this is less the case than it used to be, thankfully), I don't think that applies here. If the farmer had given up farming, studied for years with a legendary yet reclusive warrior, and then tracked down and murdered the perpetrators, then I would be with you. I think this tale, as told, paints an effective picture of how the long-suffering and pious deal with the cruelty of man. Go to Comment
