They are diet neutered enuch wizards, they cannot create their own magic. Instead they are reliant on actual wizards and sorcerers to create spells, and they dont have the old school ciphered wizard's grimoires but rather magic text books.

The two forms of magic users could well end up in a fight/propaganda war/both with each other, with the Masters accusing the Maesters of political opposition whilst the other side says the old Masters are very dangerous. Go to Comment

This is very interesting (in a good way), but I have questions. I don’t get a specific sense of what they’re actually about. It starts off by saying ‘say goodbye to moldy grimoires’ but then goes into “prop dependency” and the limitations being ‘can’t cast without their books and scrolls”. I’m pretty sure I get what you’re going for here and a I heartily approve of this new streamlined sub-class of “sorcerer-magi-warlock supreme”, but it seems a bit disjointed.

The idea of using the sun like this is a fantastic idea.I am not as well read but I don't recall anything using the sun to this extent. That would be a fantastic world to try and comprehend, game or even write about! Go to Comment

The crux of the storytelling and gaming would center around trying to survive in the realm of a mad solar god, and how the changing sun would affect human interactions. It would very likely be Mad Max like as a single bout of madness through the growing season could destroy crops and forests with great ease, making survival difficult at best. Things like war, and cities become questionable when an army in the field can be slaughtered by a green sunrise Go to Comment

Sporadically, and of variable intensity and duration.

The shortest timeframe is one day, there aren't occurrences shorter than that. Long term the fits don't last more than a few days to a few weeks for a bad one.

Nature has adapted poorly, this is apocalyptic

Standard cosmology, planet orbits a star. Star is just sentient entity and divine Go to Comment

How frequently does the madness occur? How long does it last? How did nature adapt? Is the world spherical, or is the sun "gone" at night? Go to Comment

The countries must have adapted to the sun changing so at least some people can survive. Go to Comment

This is great. A brave, new, and very cruel world develops...

So, this would rapidly become a type of underdark campaign. Barring magical defenses nothing would remain after a few occurrences of the moods. Just stone structures and dust....

I would venture to guess that the Resistance/Rebels want legitimacy and state recognition, and today suicide attacks aren't heroic or brave but are instead the calling card of terrorists and religious extremists.

I'm sure hyperdriving a Mon Cal cruiser through the Death Star would have done damage, it would have reduced the Rebels to insurgents and terrorists.

The A-wing taking out the Executor class in RotJ was accidental success while Holdo's run was desperate, and the rest thing she could do with the Raddus to save rebel lives. Go to Comment

Yes, you could do all of those things, but that would take Star Wars out of being Space Opera/Space Fantasy and move it into the realm of Military fiction. Military fiction doesn't have room for X-wings, Jedi knights, the Force, or light sabers.

Death Star? We just need a sufficiently large hyperspace capable penetrator and we can blow a hole through your planet, sort of like the Sun Crusher plotline, but way less cinematic and much more brutal and pragmatic.

Much less fun, much less adventure Go to Comment

One question: why does anyone bother making warships when they can easily be taken out by suiciding random (far smaller) jump-capable vessels? Why didn't this work on the Death Star? Go to Comment

You could use droid- or robot-controlled ships for the same effect, or even call it a hyperspace-capable torpedo. You actually don't have to have humans on suicide vessels, no? My point is, if you could hyperspace-jump (ordnance or just old boats) into an opponent's ship, it would be a mechanised staple of space warfare. Go to Comment

Only deadly weapons allowed

       By: Cheka Man

A certain country allows most civilians to carry weapons, but only if they are potentially deadly. Pepper sprays, stun guns/tasers, batons, and dart guns are banned. And if you kill someone and are not acquitted at trial, the punishment is to be hanged the day after you were found guilty. The message here is that if you want to go armed, you had better be prepared to risk killing someone and being executed unless it was clearly self defense.

When it comes to combat spells, again, only the highly dangerous can legally be cast with the same possible consequences if cast wrongly.
