Normally I would have given such a sub 3.5, but I found the little references in this tale exciting. Although it was a very short post, the constant references to places and events lent it a richness I found fitting. A good achievement for a short cultural post. Go to Comment

Strong post, great name, unique... but short. I'd love it if you either fleshed it out more or posted the numerous references and linked them. Go to Comment

2 things make them unique. Well 3. Their strong distaste for magic is sublime! I like that they are heavy wine drinkers, but ale eludes them. Facial hair immediately makes me picture them. Thats a nice touch Nice details! Am I supposed to mention their Basqueness or not?

I have mentioned my love for LOW magic campaigns several times in previous comments, so I tend to think of Bosques as "My Peeps!" Go to Comment

I think this is good candidate for your hundred word treatment. I also think you would get further at communicating the nature of these people you envisioned if you used the same number of words to write a short story about an encounter with the Bosques. I have to assume that you imagined more to these people then what is listed. They are a nice enough idea, but it lacks any real imagery or transporting detail.

The first paragraph list a bunch of facts, but has no hook. I will follow the link, but still just a bunch of facts that suggest a larger world. This is a plus I find, in that it gives the post the feel of in an game write up or an in world voice. So that is nice.

The second paragraph I think should be switched with the third paragraph. It would explain why they had no magic and it would assert that the culture came before the location. If you want to assert some other relationship between the culture and the location than you should do so.

The second half of the third paragraph should be its own paragraph as it is making an additional point. You then state that Bosques have a "stoic discipline". So I guess that being named after a lazy meandering river was undeserved and that this stoic discipline does not extend to vivacious swooning women.

The rest of the information is also rather sparse, if this was part of a list of cultures, than perhaps that would justify its brevity. Go to Comment

I am beginning to appreciate shorter submissions, and I think this one accomplishes the job of quickly painting a people. Go to Comment

i would define a Knightly Order as an organization of fighters who operate under a lawful code and have standing within the lower ranks of nobility. Mercenaries are out since they are paid in coin and do not serve king/country. Good or evil is moot, a knight is a knight. Go to Comment

Good idea, but why won't it let me vote?

On a side, note, my Tenets of Knighthood would do well in this codex... Go to Comment
