...in the corner of the eye.

This is one of the best fantasy drugs, or heroin stand-ins, as I've seen in a while. You get the Victorian opium den as you mention, sure, but you definitely get the "something different" too! I echo val in mentioning the awesomeness of the many possible grotesque origins angle.

I like how it can have a reather grotesque origin - the bees having been fed humans, and then humans consuming the 'honey' so created. Perhaps if a hive used this food source exclusively you create the Black Honey, tainted with dark magics. Go to Comment

A solidly-conceived piece: I've always had a taste for seedy Victorianesque adventuring, so the setting details particularly appeal to me.

Verita Brandy
Few people realize that Red Honey is a major ingredient of Verita Brandy, a rare distilled drink. The brewers mix the Red Honey with that of less-aggressive species, then ferment the resultant liquid into an oddly-flavored mead: This is then carefully distilled and allowed to age in apple-wood casks for 20 or more years.

Sipped carefully by nobles and wealthy merchants, Verita Brandy produces euphora similar to that caused by less-elevated forms of the drug, but it has a (generally undeserved) reputation for making its drinkers unable to lie effectively. As such, it is often shared during sensitive negotiations, used to enforce honest dealing. Go to Comment

That´s a pretty darn good idea, Wulfie. I think I´ll add it to the sub. Strange it didn´t occur to me, I´m a big fan of mead myself. Unlike my illustrious ancestors, though, I tend to leave out the psychotropic mushrooms... /D Go to Comment

The part I liked was the way the Molochii see the world, and how they are impulsive but slow to change, and their animistic faith being gentle and undemanding is a pleasant surprise. It gives a sense of depth and mystery to what could have normally been another race of brutish giant barbarians Go to Comment

Another "fun" addition to Maul.

Are we going to get more from the non Maul areas of the city? Though I know most gamers like to slog around in slums, some of us have aspirations. It is kind of pointless to steal from the poor, when the rich are not that far away. Go to Comment

I dont know, the layout of the building doesnt feel like it was originally a temple, but rather a barracks or some other utilitarian building, or possibly a defensive position, considering the towers are crenellated. As with the rest of the Maul submissions, the Amber House has a certain Frankensteinian charm to it. Go to Comment

I love a good fantasy whorehouse, and this one qualifies as good! :)

I wanted these girls to be something more than just prostitutes, so I added a bit of Mother Theresa to the mix. I also wanted them to be smart, with a political agenda, and give a good reason why they should remain free from the controlling armies of thugs around them. Street girls are human, too...

I may need to clarify that in the text, but yes, they wear Guild petticoats...no idea what i mean by that, but it sure sounds good...:-) I do think the Guild would come down pretty hard on any freelancer, though.. Go to Comment
