You're so demanding, you know that Moon. First you demand originality, then you demand usability, then you start saying that it needs to look nice. What next, do you want me to have little green demon things dancing around it? Go to Comment
I think it is a good solid posting. I like some of the little touches of chrome, in addition to the basics.
I almost think you should expand out certain sections (as systems posts or appropriate) then delete those parts out. Those posts can stand on their own or you can make this a continuing scroll. Go to Comment
Oh you did. You just did not link them. (Suggest a submission at the botton of the page) . That would certainly improve the score in many people's mind, especially if you edit the main entry to say "GO LOOK AT THE OTHER POST..." Go to Comment
Okay. I need help on this. Mostly it's just names but...
I need a name for the bards/preists. Bard brings trecherous troubadours to mind, which is exactly what these guys are not.
I need to figure out what they call their two language too. High and Low just don't sound right to me.
And I feel like I'm missing something, I'll figure it out eventually but till then. Go to Comment
All will be made clear in time AG. There is a reason that I mentioned those, even though they seem superfluous. I thought I hate kinda cut them out but I guess I missed that. My submission on their weapons might make it a bit clearer. Go to Comment
The posts come clear when you read the suggested submissions with it, but as a stand alone post things mentioned in the other need clarification in this post as well. I hadn't read the two others so the following things came up.
-If little is truly known about this cult, then why are they such a high target of violence? From their description the only thing against them is their cryptic beliefs that nobody really understands. They don't do anything but sleep so why are they so 'evil' that they can never escape prosecution.
-The tears need to be expanded on too. A) Why would anybody want to buy their tears in the first place? B) If they are always having to hide and any group is quickly destroyed by those that hate them then how would they sell their tears and who would buy them?
Now, following the links I begin to understand the power of the tears so you should lightly explain the tears a little bit and link to them inside your post so we know there is more. Same with the reason they are hated. Since this is THE submission for the Dreamer's Cult these things should definately be at least mentioned with links providing the in depth explanation.
All together they make perfect sense, but this one as is leaves too many questions untouched expecting that we will go through and read all the suggested without hints in the submission. Once fixed it will get a solid 4 from me! Go to Comment
I must say! The Dreamer Cult has surely inspired a lot of Strolenites! I love what all of you guys come up with, but I feel somewhat partial and thus I won't vote for what you and Roack and all them others create in this vein.
You should really team up with Roack though. I bet you guys could forge some wonderful stuff together, like Cheka Man and Maggot used to. Go to Comment
Are the Dream Nector addicts on the side of the order and their attacks are coordinated or are their attacks something that just happen and the Order plays them up? From the sound of it the Order incites these addict riots.
These poor Dream Cultists sure do get a pretty bad rap just for supplying 'drugs.' Can't just sell them on a street corner so they must have some sort of underground distribution network or something. I keep looking for more of a reason for everybody to hate the cult so much. Go to Comment
I think fear is a slightly generic answer though. If they know it is the drug that makes the people crazy, not the Cult (yes, they provide it the drug dealers and suppliers are bad), but it is a choice made by the people that get addicted to the drug. They want what the drug provides.
Equate it to the theive's guild. People know they are there, they rob people, cause hardship in the city, but do the people attack and fire bomb them? You must admit that theives are much more active then these cultists which all they want to do is sleep. There is a logic hump that I can't get over. I need to justify everything and this just doesn't get me all the way there.
Now, if you tell me that the Dream Cult addicts people on purpose, break into homes to drug people, kidnaps, maybe just spreading the drug over a crowd by a Cultist...now that would go a long way to justify to me why people hate and fear them so much. But just believing some wierdness and selling some drugs to people that want them (addicted or not, they want them, just like current times) doesn't make me want to burn them.
It would also make more sense that, once addicted, the users would be 'inducted' into the dream cult and not have to pay for the stuff anymore. More cult members is good I would guess? Go to Comment
Maybe we need to stop looking at it as an organisation of drug-dealers, and see what it is: a religious group.
But there is more:
- "all the other gods were merely his slaves" is a powerful insult. If you believe your god is one of the top guys, and somebody claims it is just a stray slave, that can make the people... angry.
- While this may not be readily admitted, the Cult has clearly distinct powers no one else has access to. They may be actually right... on the other hand, their powers do not make them much formidable in combat. They make a good target.
- Lastly, the gods themselves would likely be not above supporting this movement. Go to Comment
