There is still something to be said about aged meat, but this will definitely do...oh, yes, it will do.

Different than I recall the conversation but it is still a unique and scary item to be had. An interesting plot, should the players try to infiltrate a new cult using this and see it work, how then would they react to seeing someone they know on its grill? A mad dash to save them and a large fight ensues in the midst of a few dozen cultist. Fun times.

Almost a pity the cult is gone, it would have been a nice adventure if the cultists decided to invite the adventures for dinner...

This is the perfect Garage Sale From Hell item. It captures the ideals of the codex perfectly, and is itself a unique and useable item.



Well done.

I've always been fascinated with the idea, almost universal in primitive cultures, that the consumption flesh is a means of power. This is an excellent example of how to take such a belief and turn it into something even more awesome.



Besides that, this is just some plain ol' good writing. Considering the title and subject, this post could have been a lot sillier (not that that would necessarily be a bad thing,) but despite being slightly more serious and usable, it's still pretty danged funny, and that opening prose was a good read.

Disturbing and comical, always a winning combination.

Had two random thoughts in regards to this one...

1. Sawney Bean!! Give his clan this altar and a frolicking good time can be had by all, in a gruesome 16th century inspired campaign and/or and investigative/horror adventure!

2. Potential new cannibal class, a sub-class of barbarian perhaps, like berserkers. Still thinking it through. You are what you eat and all that...

Unique and refreshing, something I can see useful in my next Shadowrun campaign. For a more oriental/chi based approach one coudl also have it impart a certain amount of feminime/masculine chi energy to the consumer as well depending on the gender, and mental disipline of the victim.



Perhaps inheriting (temporarily) a small amount of skill the entree possessed in life would add another layer of use and appeal to the grill as well, beyond simple attribute improvement? (Of course to glean skill one may need to consume the prepared body parts used in performing said skill, biceps/pecs for swordmanship or blacksmithing, fingers for lockpcking, the tongue for spell weaving, etc..)

Less enthusiastic than Cheka, I must criticize - there are several gods that are just... templates. The Crafter, the Wren musician, barbarian river and storm god. What's new in those? What about the goddess that's simply a non-descript mother to other gods? Does she deserve her own 30-entry?



Also, consider always when making a pantheon: will it cover all the divine roles said culture needs to fill? If not, something's missing.



On the bright side, some like the Unnamed God who fights himself and all others too is brilliant. Caylin the Moon is also a beautiful idea. Make more on the level of those!

Well, they should be usable right out of the box.
So, if the Echo needs a god for a campaign and is not especially picky, he should be able to go to a 30 Gods post and steal, I mean get inspired.

As for To-Kah, that she had not real description in the Sumerian legends is one thing, adding your own touch and making her special another. Like, saying her belly is actually a huge rosebud that opens whenever a new godling is born. Or giving her a penchant for making mortals drunk with her milk, which angers another god to no end. A plant may be sacred to her, and that plant actually produces a powerful drug called ToKah's Milk.

A 2 minute effort (gosh, I should be less lazy and invest 2 minutes more often >.<).

So, my hint would be: pick out the more interesting gods to post first! Go to Comment

Railus's comment on 2012-04-09 12:26 PM


Its a small critique, but I was reading the Moravar entry and you make two references to foxes in subsequent sentences.



"...His eyes are dark, his features narrow and fox-like. He is as silent as the hare and as cunning as the fox."



I like the image you are trying to paint, but this made me stop for a second and kind of muddied the water for me. Maybe try using other animals to compare him to?



For what it is worth, I don't think of a fox as a hunter but more of something that is hunted. You might get the same imagery by comparing his features to a wolf or even an ocelot/leopard.

I agree with previous comments on this sub being sort of inconsistent in terms of originality and length of the different god entities. However, I did get a sense of this sub being useful for portraying the different cultures even before I read the dialogue b/w Echo and the author. So my vote is on the higher end. Go to Comment

Update: This could use some polishing up but it's been sitting around for a few months, so I figured I'd just throw it out there. Go to Comment

Thanks for the good feedback, Echo. It helps to know what works and what doesn't.

I probably didn't make this clear enough in the summary, but these are only a small sampling of all the gods of Tirexia, so most of the pantheons (panthea?) are incomplete. To do the whole list would probably require a "101 Gods" submission (*shudders*). I did this mostly as a first attempt at a 30, and I can see how difficult it is to come up with 30 completely fresh ideas. So, I used some of the "template" gods to paint a picture about the culture rather than try to be completely original. (I swear I was being creative and not just lazy. Now stop looking at me like that....)

I recognize that I could have fleshed out some of the gods better and I had all kinds of grandiose plans to do so. Priesthoods, popular myth stories, etc. But this sub sat on my machine untouched for a few months, so I figured I'd throw it up here and move on. (BTW, To-Kah was my take on the Sumerian Ninhursag/Ka, who didn't appear to do much outside of making baby gods with the sky god An; at least as far as I could find.) Go to Comment

Good catch on the double fox thing. Bad editing on my part.

Foxes are actually very good hunters; they are a very determined and clever animal. With Moravar I was going more for showing him as a clever hunter rather than being part of a pack mentality, as wolves do. Moravar looks favorably upon the lone hunter who can prove his intelligence rather than brute force when taking down prey. Go to Comment
