Dralasites (from Star Frontiers) might fall under this category as well, though they are far less plastic then those listed here and have more defined skin.

I reminded of something Pieh wrote back in to 2010, I will just repost his comment...

"I'm not sure there are any redeeming qualities in this one. I think the last line hits it on the head. It's almost like I was handed an overly generic, staple, cookie-cutter, bland, stereotypical wizard, then given some totally useless information. When given the information I looked up and said "Whut?" then I was told: Oh... Just act like Gandalf."

Just act like Robert Downey Jr. Go to Comment

I like him. Doesn't hurt that I keep picturing Andy Serkis as I read this. Good non-ultimate adversary. Just enough angst and issues, but nothing too unbelievable or over the top. Go to Comment

This is really good character, excellent combination of bits and pieces to give us both a feeling the visceral nature of the character and the psychological depth of the person. You tell us both how he feels and how he smells. Excellent stuff. I like the style of asides in his voice and the content text in the god's eye voice.

The only thing is you could have been more "mechanical" or disciplined in the write up. For example in paragraph 1 you call you him a realist and pragmatist when describing his appearance. You toss in the game use suggestions into his background and some the sentences are beneath you. But this all minor stuff, really a great character.I find it distracting and unnecessary to reference the Avengers other than it is impressive to see what you built from that brief scene.

I don't know abt the Age of Ultron and all that that's the inspiration for this sub but it's just a very well-written sub in terms of presenting a very realistic villain and the italic in Ulysses's voice is of course a trademark of excellence from Scras. Go to Comment

Pretty snazzy - like the visuals with this one, and it could easily be adapted to other forms/energy types/

Nice! This really has the feel of an old-fashioned undead "monster" (and I mean that as a positive) and yet the "old man" thing is an original nuance. I take it you were inspired by some muttering curmudgeon you encountered in your travels? :)



Seamlessly fits into an "army" of various undead, sent against PCs, the white-haired, gray-skinned floating spectral head is a great visual.



Finally, knowing that the head was recently someone's grandpa is a macabre touch. "Noooo! Gramps!!"



What exactly does "ghost-flame" do?

4/5 At first when I started reading this, I was thinking that this wasnt very much dif than what is available now, but as I read further I see it contains a few gems (enuf to make it note worthy)

This is great stuff here - one of these provides such handle on a person its crazy. It feels like a good extrapolation of the Helicopter Parent phenomena. Great stuff.

This brings up some interesting points.



I'd also add Missing Resources.



For example, our space program would have been immensely complicated by a lack of minable fissionables. Or if Coal or similar concentrated hydrocarbons never developed like they did on earth. No coal or easy oil could easily slow down the march of technology until something else destroys the civilization.



To expand - Coal only came about because for a very long time, there was no organism - bacteria, fungi, etc, that could digest cellulose. So trees would simply not rot when they died. If some bacteria had co-evolved with trees so that trees could not build up that way, you would have no coal. Which, as any CIV player will tell you, is a key resource for Railroads, and therefore most of the industrial techs too. Oil was used well after the coal economy was established.

4.5/5 Very good for a humancentric setting(although not particularly interested in this form of the genre) Issac Asomov's Foundation series is a stellar example of this being done right(Cosmic Era too). Go to Comment

The Imbrians are like Ozymandias, their empire was great and their accomplishments were far beyond what can be conceived. But like Ozymandias, their dominion is dust and ashes. They turned void and barren planets into resorts and farmland, and then back into rubble and ghosts. Go to Comment
