Drat! I don't have time to send a group of heroes on an island vacation and I want to now! Another one for the queue of "cool adventure ideas". Go to Comment

A vividly imaginative setting.  I love the history of the place, and was saddened by the islanders' plight.

Barbarians! And fairly well written I must say. With sounds of wild animals, but strangely calm at the same time, they must be a strange sight indeed. The only thing I didn't like as much are the names of their gods (if you've ever seen the Asterix comic or movies you'll know why ;) ).

Good work! Go to Comment

I would think you would get that from ancient Gauls- this reads like part Robert Howard Cimmerian, part ancient Gaul, part native American. Go to Comment

Nicely done. Nice voice on the piece with good content (covering all the bases). I have no real questions, as they all have been answered. Should their be a fretext link? Go to Comment

I have seen some of the Asterix comics, but the names actually came from Echo's Rangerspeak sub, with the -rix suffis being added, using it in the sense of -el being used in Christian names meaning 'of god' Go to Comment

A well presented region, with a number of interesting details to build adventures around. I particularly like the details about their manner of warfare and the bone birch.

It occurs to me that those expatriate mages could have a significant effect on the culture; I would be interested in hearing about their enclaves. Go to Comment

I like them, especially because they are ahead of time, and they cannot expand much further. Their whole business mode is likely to fall apart when one of them dies.

Actually I have thought of it. My kind of place. Nice touches of reality. Adding it to the establishment scroll.

Frog's might have hired couriers as "sales reps", what he might call, Codexmen. These men would travel about going door to door (or hang at a local tavern or such) in a given area, taking orders and payments/ deposits. They would go back to the store, then deliver the items out when they arrive. If you don't have a reliable courier service, how do you deliver items on a regular basis? Thus these people will be a valuable addition to their store, company.

Even if the Store goes belly up, the delivery guys may be tapped by others to deliver goods and eventually messages. Another source of revenue, one that someone else may hold together should the store die out. So when the codexmen all get fired after the death of one of the principals, they will get together that night at a tavern and create their own little company.

If things get tough for them (via the guilds), they can always talk to their royal friends and get a royal charter. Thus the store would become a crown business, immune to most guild interference, and a source of revenue for the crown (with the two men getting a large portion of the profits and passing the rest on). They would be the king's Factors, people in charge. (See where we get the word Factory, (where work for the factor is done)).

One thing you will have occur is the paper millner. While the store may fail, the local paper millner will become a powerful and prosperous man, making all those catalogs and booklets. When this store declines, he will use his geared up paper production and sell it out to various other organizations and the government. All you need is a man to locally create a movable type printing press and your information revolution begins. Go to Comment

A simple flag, faded by time and sun, tattered and worn by untold years flying from the pole of a bannerman, passing hands from officer to officer, from one generation to another. It is a humble symbol of great importance, and greater inspiration to those who see it. Soldiers become heros filled with espirit de corps, enemies loose their nerve and fire. It is not an enchanted item, but a powerful item still...
