Masterfully done. A nice weaving of story, character, and elements. Many plot hooks or things that players can be hooked into from his past. Very nice to impliment live or dead in a campaign.

He echos an A Crowley in a more fantastical setting. The same basic flow of history, the bitter ashen ending, though the details are different the theme is the same. Sometimes History makes the best foundation for fantasy. Go to Comment

My friend Sam was a great enthusiast of anything dealing with Crowley and had a good number of his books, including the Book of the Law and books on the Order of the Golden Dawn and other such stuff. The similarities between this character and Crowley are entirely coincidental as Markus is a fusion of my friend, and his most prominent RP character. Go to Comment

Amazing. It reads like a story with interaction with the narrator. The feeling is one of urgency and sadness rolled together. The House of Shadows sounds like a very interesting place and would love to read more on that. Good job scras...

When I read that Markus was dead I had assumed that by the end it would reveal he was not truely dead only transformed. Go to Comment

I totally ignored that similarity. When reading the name it put me into mind of a character in a certain series of books I am known to read, and AG apparently as the name is similar. I kept thinking of that person when reading it thinking that it could be close to him, but never once did I think of an actual person. Even better now. Go to Comment

Dragon Lord's comment on 2006-08-04 09:13 AM
I was going to comment that this reads like the life story of Alistair Crowley, but MoonHunter beat me to it.

Wonderfully dark feel to the backstory

The Decadenti would make a wonderfully dark sub-culture – not particularly evil, nor necessary criminal, but by their very existence a catalyst for criminal activity

And its’ popularity amongst the nobility is only going to complicate matters further

There’s a whole campaign arc here

Great stuff – gets the Wish I’d thought of that award – 5/5 & a Hall of Honour I think Go to Comment

I use a lot of fun words sometimes, like fantastic and awesome and brilliant, but this pulls at the heartstrings for some obvious and some not-so-obvious reasons. A worthy tribute, would be an understatement!

Special Equipment - very nice! Go to Comment

A great history behind an alchemist that could lead to some fun adventures as characters try to piece together the missing pieces of the mans past and what lead to his demise. (Either because they are his descendants or are hired by one of his colleagues to investigate the mans passing.)

Hell of an NPC.  My vote's just gilding the lily, but nonetheless.

Not bad. Bizzare but like-able.

I must say that I have not much love for the main character's name, though. But Ganymede's Ghost... that is a name I would steal immediately! Go to Comment

Wow, this is special. I love it. It reminds me of the really bad sci-fi movies of the fifties crossed with comics, which is not a bad thing. This is fun. If I ever run a sci-fi game, I think she'd have to show up. Go to Comment

I love it!
Though, personally, when I think Star Vampire, I think a slimy and rugose spherical horror from beyond the earthly sway, bearing a thousand long ridged tentacles ending in lamprey fanged mouths...
But anyway...
Awesome. Go to Comment
