Stunning, a strong charismatic character feeding on the negative emotions and turning that around into a bloody and horrible war. The line that caught me the best was

'From the heavens came the tears of a million dead, those who'd lived and died following Beggar.' Go to Comment

Praise where praise is due, and it’s certainly due here

Great stuff – 5/5 & gets today’s HoH vote

Possible plot idea
What is a shaman were to contact the spirit of Beggar and start the whole thing up again, this time as a cult rather than a political movement.

If the nobility were scared the first time, imagine how they’d feel when the movement has the power of religious conviction behind it. And imagine what they might do the stop it.

Now if that’s not a scenario just waiting to happen, I don’t know what is. Go to Comment

I really like this. A nice history for a place which gives it a nice rounded background. Nice points like the mane of the Beggars Gate being misunderstood through time. Go to Comment

Well, normally I come up with or find some amusing quote, but I couldn't find the motivation to do that for this one. So instead I took a page out of Generic Strolenite's book and copied the first couple of sentances. Go to Comment

I can honestly say, I like everything about it!

Except maybe for the repeating first sentences. :D Go to Comment

Powerful historical post. Excellent backgroud for more "modern" implications

This one gets a major YeeHaw from me. :) Go to Comment

Another one of my favourites, and a great source of inspiration. Dystopic, dysphoric, dystonic and other things beginning with dys...I love it! Perfect in presentation, content, symbolism and atmosphere. What else is there to say? 5/5, and it damn well deserves it. Good job! /David Go to Comment

I imagine that he is a desert god... Deserts seem to foster angry monotheistic deities. Go to Comment

This is a good piece. I want a little more of everything though as this and the other post leave a lot of ideas floating around. Go to Comment

manfred's comment on 2006-05-12 02:23 AM
Can't ask why it wouldn't work, for there are immediately several options springing into my mind. One is (besides the officially spread the blessing of a god) ritual magic - the Samahhi have by accident discovered a ritual that makes an armor close to indestructible, for a time of course. No wonder those soldiers are fervent believers - it makes them undefeatable (well, of course not, but you get the idea) - and it is good to have such a god.

As a side note, it seems the armor itself (when not 'enchanted' or not worn by the person that enchanted it) is fairly weak, which I find an interesting twist. Cool idea, Pariah. Go to Comment

I demand more of this setting. NOW.
Somebody is probably going to come along and say why this armor wouldn't work, but too bad. It's cool, and that's all that counts.

How does it work? It's armor. Armor is hard.. You put armor on your body, and then people have a tougher time hurting you. That seems fairly clear to me. Go to Comment
