Okay, I worded that badly. They don't fight by the same rules as everyone else does. Where other cultures would view it as taboo to attack a ma when hes down, chivilry after all, they view the act of falling down as a weakness, and as such it must be cleansed (ie killed). Insetead of chivilry they think that if you can't see the fear in your enemy's eyes you are commiting a sin. That's why they ahbor backstabbing and ranged weaponry, they're sign of the heathens and their god's.
When my current deluge of ideas is done Ill go back and fix as many of hese minor inconsistencies as I can. As it is I have about 15 ideas backed up into my head tha Im sturggling to get on paper/make presentable. Go to Comment
Actually, that could be slightly metaphorical - the command speaks generically of The Old And Wise - and since all the older males could have been father, you've got to show respect to all of them, buddy!
Aside: anyone that is so old as to have adult grandchildren is of a venerable age, and should he keep to the commandments, then he will be wise as skillful - a source of wisdom for the young ones. Go to Comment
In the write-up for the Kazi race - "The Kazi have no wives, instead sharing the women of the tribe among themselves and their guests. Because of this family lineage is not tracked through the father but through the mother"
Here, in the write-up for their god - "Honour your father's father and your mother's mother, in them is the truth"
How could they honour their father's father when they do not keep track of paternal parentage, and indeed cannot do so since, giving their mating practices, no individual can know who his father is?
A law demanding the honour of maternal parentage is fine, it helps to cement the tribe and define who is "one of the tribe", but demanding paternal honour makes no sense.
You need to change either the culture or the rule - personally I would suggest changing the rule and leaving the culture alone
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
A group of northerners want to bring the Old Gods back to the south. They grow cuttings from the white trees seeking the blessings of the Old Gods on the project, and when the saplings are big enough, they carve faces in them and secretly plant them in forests all over the south, to extend the 'reach' of the Old Gods.
The plan works of course, but the trees are *baby gods*, and behave as such when invoked.
