The beefcake and cheesecake are somewhat meta but in no relation to any specific system, but rather traditional fantasy art, ala cheesecake fantasy like Red Sonja, and Boris Vallejo, and Frazetta. This could also very easily apply to 99% of comic book artists. Go to Comment
It never even occurred to me to supply a dress code for adventurers, but this is precisely the kind of world-building detail that really gets players immersed. Also I'm a sucker for color coding. I think it needs to be a little longer, though. Maybe some additional restrictions to garb based on orders within the guild, or exceptions for very specific honors. I'm also not fond of the mention of alignments and beef/cheesecakery, those seem like system-specific meta statuses, and otherwise this has the makings of an excellent first-hand document.

This is really good one, it is fairly clearly written and the idea touches on all the aspects the major themes of of the cosmic era: saddism, ruthless corporate pragmatism, militarism, and surrealism. I'd like to see one of these guys as protagonist in a plot or narrative. Go to Comment
Able Blank NPCs (Scenario Based)
Walking through the alleys of the docks district of town, you hear an old, mad beggar calling out for alms. He claims to be a god, cast out from heaven and stripped of his powers. The party passes, tossing a few coppers to him. In thanking them, the madman refers to incidents in their childhood or distant past which would have been all but impossible for him to know.
