I like this to a point. I to am having trouble finding out what it looks like. Also the Tunneling Surrush, why is is called that if it is used for hauling wagons and searching for water? I was expecting an underground version that has an affinity for the earth and an ability to excavate quickly.

Over all it is a decent post, but it needs work to bring it above my 3.0 mark. I would have given it a 2.5 but it seems you have put forth some effort into it which makes it seem real to a point. Go to Comment

Thank you for your comments Zylithian, personally I can't think of any way to describe it, and the Image you conjoured up is very similar to my own. I will probably revisit the description later or photoshop something for clarification. Go to Comment

The Tunneling Sirrush digs for water, hence the name. Go to Comment

Sometimes when one can picture something well in your mind one doesn't make a clear description. Based on your descriptions and writing style, I believe this is a good post, but I have a ton of trouble understanding what this creature looks like. I think it has four legs, because the third variant has uneven leg lengths, but that's the first time that became clear. They have smooth skin, but it is scaley - I guess snakes are smooth - is this what you meant? I don't understand what you mean by elongated scales from the shoulder blades - are they sticking out or lying on the skin? I'm picturing something like a short reptilian horse with a long (unproportional) neck and a dog's head, with smooth scales and a bumpy tail.

I like how you talk about different breeds - I think that's really good.
It would be interesting to know more about the temperment.

I think this post could be much better with a very small change in how you describe it... maybe I'm dense, but I don't understand. If you could explain better, I'd recomment/revote. Go to Comment

Nice, I like the colorful nature of the Ylfharn, and the jet black priestesses with third dragon eyes... that is just an impressive visual. I can see their clay armor being effective against thrusting weapons and arrows, but being less effective against things like clubs, hammers, and maces. Another downside is how do you fix pottery armor? Break it and you have to make a new set from scratch. Still, i get a great primitive tribal vibe from these folk. Go to Comment

When I read this the first time I was really frustrated and annoyed and as I started to formulate my response I realized what was frustrating me.  This idea and the write up is really awesome and I wanted more.  So I read it again and again and I realized how much crap (good crap) you have put into this piece.  I think this is a great intro to your world.  As Scrasamx said you gave us the vibe and it is a good vibe. I want to read more, give us some links.

This feels like a teaser, as surely there is more to these folks then the intriguing picture currently presented.

The Sword of Fire, as posted here, could be a great domestic item.

Gloves of Hearth

The main Glove of Hearth is the Glove of Cleaning:
It is a simple magic items with three cantrips enchanted into them. "Clean"/ "Sweep"/ "Polish"

These gloves are simple long soft cloth gloves of a creme color with a redish agate monted at the wrist. The gloves are clean, but always look quite worn.

There are gloves that will help with cooking (Warm/ Cool/ Flavor/ Alter Flavor) and Laundry (Clean/ Brighten/ Press) and other tasks. Their stones will be different (Green and Blue for these stones). A well prepared household would have a variety of gloves to help with all domestic chores.

These are nothing more than Cantrip Gloves. Many appentices create domestic gloves to help them with their own mundane chores for their master AND because they can easly sell the items for some pocket cash. Go to Comment

I think it is far to easy to forget that the bulk of magic is going to be used in the day to day affairs of the populace, providing that magic is accepted and not reviled or seen as evil. To touch on a lighter subject, such items as self-stirring pots, enchanted scrubbers that wash dishes, and the old stand-by, the Apprentice's Brooms come to mind.

On a more serious note, there will certainly be a market for good luck charms, amulets and special wardings. Would you like a Ward vs. Telemarketers? What about an illegal charm that wards away the King's Taxman? Go to Comment

A good idea-not all magic needs to be reserved for high-ranking ubermages. Go to Comment

As it stands this is little more than a basic idea, although I must say it's quite a good one.

Each of the magical properties listed above could, and in my view should, be expanded as an item in its own right.

I won't bother to vote on this but wait until more detail is supplied.

Nice idea but needs more work - I look forward to seeing the expanded post. Go to Comment

Monument's comment on 2005-07-28 03:44 PM
I had a thought about the ring of contraception... could such a device be really useful to a mideaval whore? I mean, how much value would NOT having children be, in that line of work? I have this visual that johns weren't terribly picky about the pregnancy status of their whores at the time, but maybe it's just a visual I have.

Could one create a plot surrounding the desire to obtain a ring like this for a whorehouse? The ring to be transferred from whore to whore to prevent conception of children? Maybe some thieves guild plot to increase the value of their whores, or something? Maybe the rival guilds are jealous of the prices the whores command, and some turf war breaks out? I dunno, just a thought... Go to Comment

I was planning on adding to it, but I'm short on ideas at the moment. If you have any, please let me know. As for the Alishtar/Emera part it's very campaign specific, and for all I know anyone here may be gaming it sometime. I'll try to link it to a setting post ASAP though. Go to Comment
