I am afraid that Susanna Clark has forever tainted me with that wonderful piece of work, though Limberlost was a seed idea from about two years ago in a chat I had with Adel. Go to Comment

Very, very good. It reminded me of several things. One is your own http://www.strolen.com/content.php?node=2065, "The year of red leaves", another is http://www.strolen.com/content.php?node=2077, "Autumndale Trees" by MoonHunter. The connection between these, beside the obvious trees, is the vibe and atmosphere... They suit each other.

Additionally the sub sent my thoughts to Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell (it is becoming a movie now, believe it or not).

When I read these subs I truly feel that you (and MoonHunter in the case of Autumndale) are REALLY on to something. Only thing that detracted from this great sub was the parodies of mankind found therein, and... Well, the fauna of the forest seemed a little limited. I'd love it if it was really teeming with life and wonders and surreal gaelic faerie extravaganza! Go to Comment

I love it in it's depressed withdrawal of most any sensory input.

And quotes from Thief: The Dark Project

"...And the manfools piled rock on rocks and raised a treesie roof, hammers saws tear the skin of goodsie wood... ...and laughs at the Woodsie Lord. ...And when learns the Lord of this, He sends His beastesses to the manfools... ...who attacks and hammers saws their useless fleshes, and build him a house of they rotting skins."
-Unattributed Trickster song
"Builds your roofs of dead wood. Builds your walls of dead stone. Builds your dreams of dead thoughts. Comes crying laughing singing back to life, takes what you steal, and pulls the skins from your dead bones shrieking."
-Clay tablet in an abandoned Trickster temple
"He am the leaf that feeders on the fleshed ones. Thems that calls themselves Builders and wielded up a hammers against him!"
-Viktoria, servent to the Trickster
"My poor Mister Garrett, you will not live to SEE the sprawling glory of it! Your sacrifice is not yet complete! Mine lilacs and mine thistles must feeds, and I? Stands He then in the greens and festered Maw and speeds He out his judgements upon the weeps and writhing manfools!"
-The Trickster himself, addressing the player Go to Comment

-The Walking-Stick Legion. Bizarre, faintly-humanoid amalgamations of branches, sticks, briars and thorns. They use their multiple, angular, sharpened limbs to pierce and impale outsiders.

-'Fire-Eater'. A huge humanoid being of sand, mud, and grass, which shambles about. Any and all flames or fires used or cast in its area, are immediately sucked in harmlessly into its being.

In a word, wow! When my campaign gets going again from the summer hiatus I'll have to put this in my players' path :) (Evil GM grin...)

This is both a very specific and detailed environment, with the ability to be seamlessly dropped into virtually any campain world!

Now, the only thing is that it reminds me a little of the Dreams of Lorac from the early Dragonlance novels, but not enough for me to change my vote. 5/5 Go to Comment

I just wanted to point out a spelling mistake, you can totally delete the comment.
"It is both ancient, and exists somwhat outside of the conventional rules of time and space."
"The cariacatures of men can be found in secluded places in Limberlost."

I really like the idea of unexpected returns, "by helping the Woodking in my game, you have unlocked Wood elves!!" Go to Comment

What they said. A very interesting effect that would really be useful for a surgeon - and many shadier characters, too. Go to Comment

I'd echo Scras' statements and add that the main difference between straight and curved swords is their provenance- straight swords were made mainly for stabbing and close-quarters fighting by footsoldiers (keep in mind the Roman footsoldier), while curved blades were meant for slashing attacks from horseback by riding warriors (for instance, mounted Arab warriors with scimitars, or the original samurai, who were riders, accounting for the curved shape of the katana).

Nicely done. Touch of back story. Interesting elements and power. I give it some paws up.

Should this not have a Falhath free text?

I also added it to the common magic codexes. Go to Comment

4/5

As Cheka noted: It is a pity these are large swords and not surgical scalpels, else medical procedures would be made a walk in the park. If the numbing quality is in the metal, perhaps it could be melted down to make a more wieldy surgery utensil? Still... I see amputation bieng a painless possibility.

On top of all that, I can see it bieng a more-than-adequate munchkin-slayer, too. Go to Comment

Quool's Tide

       By: Murometz

Once every decade on the eve of St. Poskov's Day during mid-winter, the coastal city of Tiyabon experiences a horrific event. Quool's Tide rolls in, depositing hundreds of bloated, fish-eaten corpses upon the pebbly shores of Tiyabon's wide bay. This singularity is to this day unexplained, though countless theories abound. It is said for example, that these corpses are not eaten by the myriad fish of the seas completely, due to the fear all creatures of the seas hold for Quool.

Named for Quool, a terrible, antediluvian god of seas and storms, who no longer exists for he has no worshipers, the Tide chokes the beaches and surf with the countless rotting bodies of those who had perished at sea in a violent way.

Almost immediately, the lifeless corpses are fed upon by crabs, gulls, and worse things that await the horrid feast. The townsfolk let nature take it course with disinterested disgust, though lately some enterprising adventurers have taken to searching along the beaches of flesh for former deceased companions, with intentions of raising them again!

Surprisingly no undead ever rise from among the many corpses. This is also a mystery.
