I like this piece. Well executed and well thought out. It has those little details that I enjoy so much. It does not have as much dramatic potential as the other things you have posted recently, but it is interesting. Paws up. Go to Comment
One of the things to keep in mind when dealing with the high altitude campaign is that the players are going to be limited to what they can bring with them into the mountain, and even moreso what they can take out. gold is heavy, and like Pariah says, there are going to be bodies of people who failed to calculate the right ratio of gold to supplies for the return trip.

I like this - a cross between the Lonely Mountain and Everest. Perhaps one could even make it such that the mountain has gotten higher over time - much faster than normal - making its hazard much greater than when the dwarves dwelled there. Go to Comment
This one is missing something. I am not sure what. When I can provide a better description of it I will. I like the idea behind this (basically) and the execution is nice (basically). Linkage to the black market either in the text or as a suggestion would be nice (your choice). We will work on this reply later. Go to Comment
Other than cleaning up the format of the bolds in a few spots, a great post. It is has a different "voice" than most of our descriptions. I am not sure if I like it as much as other "voices", but it is certainly captivating (bonus for novelty and artistic execution). The setting has interest to it. Nice dramatic potential.
The tomes of Strolen's - check
The tomes of various Neo Tolkein, Psuedo European para feudal fantasy -check
The annuals of gaming (in anything other than a modern game (western on), future game, or some fantasy enfusion of a historical), after checking a eighty seven books (everything I can currently get my hands on, the rest are in storage), there are various mentions of pipes but no mentions of Zettelette or their real world counterparts. There are still two possibles, which are in storage: Maelstrom Storytelling (Dacartha Prime specifically) and Tales of Gargentihr. I do not have a direct memory of either one mentioning them, but if any two fantasy games do.. they do. Go to Comment
Cleaned up the formatting uglies, and I would like to thank Moon for checking his sources on the matter. The zettelette was an important application of the new paper industry, and I thought it would give Vandy a more progressive/modern feel without sacrificing the essence of the genre setting.

Scras- I kind of thought it was blaise when we spoke about it earlier, but then you went and introduced cigarretes, for what I believe, (Moon will tell me if I'm wrong) the first time in the annals of pseudo-medieval fantasy city lore, or at least Strolens annals. GGGGgggreat!
sorry- Its St. Patty's day and I'm mildly trashed :D and I can use a Zettelette Go to Comment
