Very nice creation myth, and it sets up a nice epic conflict. I would like to hear the history from the prospective of the demons and false prophets. Go to Comment

I have no problem with the repeating the first few lines of the post as the introduction. You keep doing that and you will do fine.

I like the write up, both in presentation and content. It provides an excellent plotline to be either lived through OR to be set into the past.

We really need more historical elements/ events in the system. They can be the most useful for GMS. Go to Comment

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

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

Ringworld-based game , anyone

       By: Kawaresksenjajok

hey im new to this site but was here years ago w/ another name. anyways dont remember so im newbie by default.
Firstly, I am a sci-fi reader and I hope to meet success with my writing.
My favorite series of books are Larry Nivens RINGWORLD tetralogy (Ringworld, RingWorld Engineers, The RingWorld Throne, and RingWorlds Children)
For those that havnt read the ring world is the greatest artificial structere ever discovered.
A ring, its circumference equal to earths orbit, it is built around a sol-like star. Shadow squares halfway betwwn the ring and the sun provide 15 hours of night in a thirty hour day. 70 days equals one falan (one full rotation of ring world. The inner surface-the one exposed to the sun, is terraformed and is one millionkmwide cntrifugal force provides gravity, and rim walls 1000km high keep the atmosphere in. Population of RNH(ringworld native hominids)
estimated in the trillions.
The origins of who built it and why are too sticky to get into. But the ringworld , millions of years ago, was populated bt A race called Pak Protectors. Protectors are ancestors of all homo sapiens. they populated ringworld with homo erectus, but left no predators in the ecology. hence, hominids evolved into every ecological niche. (Vampires, Carrion Eaters, Giant Herbivores, Small Carnivores, some built great technologies and went interstellar. Oh, and ringworld is 300 million times the surface area of earth. post if youre interested, Ill elabortae on native species and alien vistors
