Superb. Beautifully rendered mythos with a staggering amount of juicy detail! (More thoughts when I'm less exhausted). Welcome to the Citadel! Go to Comment

It seem GC ate my previous commentary, so let me try this again:



An exhaustive amount of information and very in depth plot that is quite memorable; I particularly like the link backs in the intro to other subs, it makes for a convenient reference for the reader. 



However I do find the amount of depth  here to be a little rigid and difficult to easily work into an already established campaign setting without it feeling like it was shoehorned in somewhat.



Adding in an additional section with plot hooks and adventure concepts, as well as some suggestions on how to include this faith/legend into an existing fantasy world would complete the piece for me, and give it that last bit of "ready to use" feeling it seems to lack for me.

A very nice technical layout, splendid paragraphing and very useful. The content itself is not exceptional but it is of good quality.

Some good information here - but much of it is taken word for word from other websites, including http://www.thunderpaw.com/neocelt/mists.htm (which I noticed has a copyright date of 1995). We all borrow inspiration from other sources, but you may want to credit the original source. Go to Comment

Again, a most excellent treatment of a relgion.

I think I might steal your template...:)

Hrm. Good question. Probably (1) and (3), as the case may be. (mutters about omissions) Go to Comment

I can't claim the template's wholly original; it's derived from the one describing Gloranthan religions in Cults of Prax and Cults of Terror, many a long year back, albeit with a number of changes. That being said, steal away! Go to Comment

RGTraynor's comment on 2009-05-29 12:27 PM
Well, now, that's interesting. I think I ought to have a chat with Mr. Gibson, since I wrote the second of the two invocations cited around 1987 for a pagan ritual; I once was heavily in the pagan movement and wrote a bunch of stuff for publication. (Not that I *care* that much, but.) Thanks for the tipoff!

The first of the two invocations there is far older, and has roots in ancient Celtic oaths, so while my phrasing's been cribbed as well, I can't precisely claim plagiarism for infringement of interpretations of the "sky above me, sea around me, earth beneath me" riff. Hell, it's pretty obvious that this includes a bunch of Celtic mythic elements.

That being said, I did cite contributions on one of the other religions (where the holidays were ALL from the Arduin Grimoire, which I've used for a game calendar for decades, and where another author contributed to some bits) and promptly broke the submission; it seems that the "Contributors" box only works for registered users of this site.

Very thought out idea, and a great template at that. This could easily be used for an RPG, which is exactly what people are looking for. Great quality, great job. Go to Comment

Perfect amount of detail to make it wonderfully immersive and useable! Just enough back story for each location/NPC to allow you to spin a story when they meet the folks and get the players right into the city.

Good locations and NPCs, though the navy depot does not sound very safe to me.

One fireship or block ship could pen in the entire fleet if surprise is attained.

I am impressed by the level of detail here!
