They are diet neutered enuch wizards, they cannot create their own magic. Instead they are reliant on actual wizards and sorcerers to create spells, and they dont have the old school ciphered wizard's grimoires but rather magic text books.
The two forms of magic users could well end up in a fight/propaganda war/both with each other, with the Masters accusing the Maesters of political opposition whilst the other side says the old Masters are very dangerous. Go to Comment
This is very interesting (in a good way), but I have questions. I don’t get a specific sense of what they’re actually about. It starts off by saying ‘say goodbye to moldy grimoires’ but then goes into “prop dependency” and the limitations being ‘can’t cast without their books and scrolls”. I’m pretty sure I get what you’re going for here and a I heartily approve of this new streamlined sub-class of “sorcerer-magi-warlock supreme”, but it seems a bit disjointed.
The idea of using the sun like this is a fantastic idea.I am not as well read but I don't recall anything using the sun to this extent. That would be a fantastic world to try and comprehend, game or even write about! Go to Comment
The crux of the storytelling and gaming would center around trying to survive in the realm of a mad solar god, and how the changing sun would affect human interactions. It would very likely be Mad Max like as a single bout of madness through the growing season could destroy crops and forests with great ease, making survival difficult at best. Things like war, and cities become questionable when an army in the field can be slaughtered by a green sunrise Go to Comment
I would venture to guess that the Resistance/Rebels want legitimacy and state recognition, and today suicide attacks aren't heroic or brave but are instead the calling card of terrorists and religious extremists.
I'm sure hyperdriving a Mon Cal cruiser through the Death Star would have done damage, it would have reduced the Rebels to insurgents and terrorists.
The A-wing taking out the Executor class in RotJ was accidental success while Holdo's run was desperate, and the rest thing she could do with the Raddus to save rebel lives. Go to Comment
Yes, you could do all of those things, but that would take Star Wars out of being Space Opera/Space Fantasy and move it into the realm of Military fiction. Military fiction doesn't have room for X-wings, Jedi knights, the Force, or light sabers.
Death Star? We just need a sufficiently large hyperspace capable penetrator and we can blow a hole through your planet, sort of like the Sun Crusher plotline, but way less cinematic and much more brutal and pragmatic.
You could use droid- or robot-controlled ships for the same effect, or even call it a hyperspace-capable torpedo. You actually don't have to have humans on suicide vessels, no? My point is, if you could hyperspace-jump (ordnance or just old boats) into an opponent's ship, it would be a mechanised staple of space warfare. Go to Comment
On a location with numerous webs, and at least one big spider, there is a something inside a cocoon. It is humanoid in shape, still moving. If the heroes free it (not before they kill or drive away the spiders), they meet a ... zombie!
The poor zombie wandered the dungeon alone, and tried to kill a big living creature (= a spider). The spider used the usual treatment, even if this victim did not look tasty. The zombie can be easily killed as any other zombie. It got but several doses of spider-poison, so can be something worth if it is extracted. You can mention to a druid or ranger the fact the spider had no poison anymore.
