Bizarre, intricate and mystifying existential treatise. The Heavenly Paths are intriguing!

Love the descriptions of Dimmalt "realm of broken shale and overcast skys" and Hecatomb "oceans of congealing blood, caverns of decaying meat and bone."

I'll be honest, some parts are slightly confusing. Had to read and reread LaGrange several times in Wiki :D The presentation seems slightly disjointed.

Why Boccob? isnt he a Greyhawk deity? Go to Comment

I may have to vote this Golden too now! Hmmm...must reread. Rosicrucian Esoterica, combined with Astrology, Asotronomy, Elementalism, Animism, Symbology, and Qabbalah-esque Existentionalism!!

mind-shattering!! Go to Comment

I see alot of gnostic and mystical influence here as well as heavy neoplatonism. I like it, alot. This is not just astronomical, it's as Olontur said, a foundation for an entire cosmos, or at least a single world. A very cool 'a posteriori' take on some by-the-book classical/mythical ideas, with a new flavor to them.

Interesting. The punishment reminds me of more sci-fish variants - freezing people, and the like. Likeable, with a solid amount of detail. Go to Comment

I like this piece. In incorporates several elements with good description and dramatic content. The number of "fun" details generate high marks for me. While a bit more "magicked" than my worlds tend to be, the NPC and his keep is logical and well developed. Go to Comment

We need a prison like that in real life. 5/5

Plot Hook-the PCs are sent to replace some of the urns with Urn Beasts in an attempt either to assassinate the mage, or to discredit his prison in the eyes of the city rulers and have it shut down. They are paid to do this by the local chapter of the Thieves Guild.

Dragon Lord's comment on 2006-06-02 09:38 AM
manfred is quite right of course – this is a fairly standard Sci-Fi theme – I’ve never seen it done so well for a fantasy setting though – much kudos for that Scras

A well developed character with a logical background and a believable motivation

Definitely up to your normal standard – 4½ / 5

Another Plot Hook
Revenge of the Thieves Guild – One of the Kerke-Mages, deeply in debt to a “syndicated” gambling hall, has paid off his dues by revealing the details of both the Reduction spell and the revival spells to a local crime boss. The thieves guild now start locking up guardsmen in their own Kerke’s Keep, along with members of rival “families”, and anybody else who gets in his way. – Can the PCs find out where all the missing people are going. And more importantly, can they bring the criminal mages responsible to justice. Go to Comment

I enjoyed everything about this sub. The mage, the prison, and all the wonderful details! Kudos! My favorite bit being the Reduction spell reducing prisoners to their salty essence. I will immediately be creating a gaming session around that idea!

since "5" means..."awesome one! I'll find a way to use it" its a 5! Go to Comment

Sarcasm Ax can do no wrong! Another brilliant submission, and a memorable NPC that I will eagerly steal and insert into my urban setting. I may alter the "essential salts" a bit to suit my low-magic theme, but everything else shapes quite nicely. Go to Comment

Mmm. Freeze dried criminals. Pass the salt-shaker :)

This is actually less severe then being incarcerated - seems like you would not age so imprisoned.

Imagine some prisoner's 'lost' for decades and then restored. Go to Comment

Interesting and well developed. Good dramatic points. The city has to be a stable one, where nobody is worrying about war or other crisis, so they can fret (sorry not intended pun) about music. Go to Comment

Lil' Bilge Rat, Flange, and Piety Snood...Priceless! I love Donque's posse. Like Nap, I probably wont be inserting the gnome rappers into my campaign, but it makes for a hysterically funny read. Love the details in this one!...Donque's emblem, his zither, his posse..you know what, maybe I will insert him after all. :D Go to Comment
