This is a wonderful idea and while I have a generlized history for my setting it is nothing as profound as this. I shall endeavor to do just this very thing and get into the specifics. Great job. Go to Comment

Mourngrymn's comment on 2007-01-09 09:51 AM
I agree with Scars on this point. A similar instance occured in the histories of Hewdamia. It was once a high magic reliant world. Basic tasks were replaced by magical means instead of labor. An upheaval in the world caused magic to no longer function as it once did. Not as abundant, rare, and different than its old applications. So a low level magic society rose from the ashes and in certain parts of the world magic no longer was welcomed with open arms but shunned and even outlawed depending on how horrific the change of magic was to that individual part of the world.

:applause: It is all making sense to me now, and I expect some cults have popped up saying 'the past wasn't all that great, in fact the gods struck them down for thier stupendous hubris, claining they were as great as the gods themselves' Or something like that. Go to Comment

Ive been going back to my favourite posts on the site lately, just to show appreciation to the people who have inspired me the most. This is one of them. I like a good solid backstory for both PC´s, NPC´s and the entire setting. This is a good example of that, a well explored history that includes the chaotic touch so common in our own world´s history. Great job!

This article has given me some great ideas to incorporate in my own world. I haven't worked up a full 'Old World' history, just bits and pieces. Time to put the pieces together with a cohesive and unified history. Great article 5/5. Go to Comment

I like. I like the way it's written as a historical text that has been "edited." It leaves one to wonder if the author was biased against the Trinitine Faith, or if the work was deemed semi-heretical and "corrected." Go to Comment

CaptainPenguin's comment on 2006-04-16 09:03 PM
Agreed!
Good stuff.
The only issue I see is that I'm no closer to understanding the actual theology of the Church... I have only vague hints of a triple god and comparisons to other religions.
But as a historical and cultural piece, it is perfect.

4.5/5. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2006-04-16 11:07 PM
This is terribly mislabled, unless there is going to be a The Trinitine Faith II and The Trinitine Faith III post to tell me what is going on. Perhaps this should be retitled The Origins of the The Trinitine Faith

It is beautifully written, artistically executed, has a bunch of great details. But in the end, it really does not tell much of anything about this religion. Perhaps a "Dummy's Guide to the The Trinitine Faith is in order. Go to Comment

This goes down as one of my favorite posts of yours all-time! The scope and verisimilitude is amazing. A subtle yet powerful treatise on history and religion par excellence! And it doesnt pound you over the head with a hammer. It flows smoothly.

We need more ocean related posts.

The Captain here is a rich creation. He has depth and odd elements. His write up is well executed. In some ways, I see James T Kirk, which in turn is Horatio Hornblower. Go to Comment

Right as usual Moon, Wandern here was inspired by Shatner, and the quote in the summary is slightly modified from something Shatner said, regarding technology, rather than magic, and the driving force behind Trek. Horatio hornblower, the eight-part series (8 hours?) was also great! Go to Comment

This was a quick toss off, well written and cute, and I was drawn into the character immediately. But then he never showed up.

It is okay for a minor character,
but most GMs already have shatner in their pockets. A few magic items and a barebone catalog of military service are not very enlightening points nor are they great launch pads for in character roleplaying. Go to Comment

A good adaptation of the character. I like!
