When seperated from the flock and certain nerves are pinched a Bahara'hara'raha will become nearly comatose. Also, as mentioned, they don't think to look up, and considering Ylfharn hunters attack from above.... Go to Comment
I especially like the journal!! Perfectly evokes distant exotic lands. One question- why are two meter piranha/gorilla hybrids with teeth that can cut through steel and rippling arms of muscle so weak and easy to kill individually? Go to Comment
While interesting I find it lacking in substance. As a lifeform I feel it should have a few things that should be standard among submissions. I am confused as to its purpose and the reason (no pun intended) behind an insatiable hunger for life not not have a desire to feed.
The concept itself of a emotionless etherial killer is nice, but it needs a purpose and a fulfilling nature. Which I understand are its desire for food. But why do they only desire that? WHy are the desired by mages? What is the purpose behind anyone wishing to own one or covet one so?
The Reason feeds off emotion, making its target, while far wiser, a cold, emotionless, and most likely insane shell.
In their feeding do they make the source more intellilgent. By reading this line it confused me. They feed off emotion yes, but what is the by product and how does it affect the source?
I think it has promise but I also feel it needs some fleshing out. Go to Comment
This is a fantastic idea seed (with a cool title). One question, did you imagine the emotional drain being permanent? It is also interesting that see emotion as anathema to wisdom and discipline. (I personally tend to agree with you, but CBRs would create mental blind spots in their victims).
Anyway, good post there are no strong gaps or flaws in the idea but as an idea there is a lot of exploration left to do. Go to Comment
Whale's Jaw is a crumbling stone monument that was once in the form of a skeletal whale. Many years have past since the construction of Whale's Jaw and these days all that can be seen in the "jaw" jutting from the earth as if it is yearning for a final glimpse of sunlight before taking a plunge into the earth.
All around The Jaw are remains of oddly formed and weathered structures. They seem to have been smoothed and tumbled by severe rain or ocean currents. Most say it is just another Wonder of The World, a mystery we will never know the answer to, but some know differently... I know differently...
