16. Sir Argent Forgescale, ex-Knight of the Shark

The dwarf Argent Forgescale was once a member of the Grand Order of the Reef, defending the Boshic Sea paddling on his longboard and armed with a shark-toothed oar. An ideological dispute about defending the wider seas caused a rift with his branch of the order, and Sir Argent became a free agent. Still dedicated to his cause, he joined in with a band of pirates, seeing an opportunity to eliminate threats to the natural balance of the seas. He is at home on the water, paddling along his longboard as a scout ahead of the ship. He can disappear beneath the waves and hold his breath like a porpoise. Sir Argent is skilled with his toothed oars, wielding two at once and slicing opponents with the barbed teeth. His companion is a great squid that comes to his aid when summoned, tearing with tentacle and beak. Go to Comment

A pirate for every class is a fun twist. I'll try to add a few. Go to Comment

bThe Crown of Jolyx, The Crown of Hunger/b

Jolyx is the breadbasket of Kanyx: fertile plains and lush forests. The folk of Jolyx are earthy and hard-working farmers, huntsmen, trappers, and rangers. They are a practical folk, and have never took much liking to kings or tyrants, relying instead on family ties and the leadership of their village elders.

Thus it was was great surprise that Kanyx learned of Jolyx's first great leader: Eiroll the Gray, an aging herdsman who appeared one day with a simple crown and calling himself High Gerent. Eiroll's directives on how to plant and where to graze rubbed against the grain of most Jolyxians. But the few who did try it found they increased their yields, and with time Eiroll was sought for advice by everyone. On his death, the crown passed to his kinsman Kadoll, and thus the high gerentry has stayed in his line.

The Crown of Hunger is made of fine golden threads, made to look like woven wheat. Small gemstones like berries are threaded along, appearing not unlike a festive harvest crown. An elegant crown of humble bearing.

quotebPowers of the Crown of Jolyx/b

The wearer of the Crown of Hungers cannot starve or die of thirst. Her companions will not feel the pains of hunger, though starvation will still harm their bodies.

The wearer can command domesticated animals - any livestock or hunting animal - with the ease and precision of the skilled druid. Wild animals will not be obeyed, but they fear the wearer of the crown like a powerful shepherd or sheepdog.

Immunity from heat and cold is granted to the wearer, banishing frost and drought alike.

While fighting in Jolyx, the wearer will lose stamina much slower, strongly desiring to protect the farmlands.

bCurses of the Crown of Jolyx/b

Although the bearer cannot starve, they can also never be sated. The pain of hunger and dryness of mouth will haunt them as long as they wear the crown.

The finest of tongues is made sluggish by the crown, who prefers the talk of rural folk. It makes nobles and scholars sound foolish and rustic.

The wearer feels a strong draw to stay in Jolyx, and fighting ability outside of the home country is reduced./quote Go to Comment

Update: Started as a cool halloween decoration, an observatory that had a giant eyeball on top. Ran out of steam, and then this has just languished in the in work folder. Fly or fall. Go to Comment

Update: This was intended to be a short article and drastically ran over. I've not touched it in two months, and it's time to kick it out of the nest. This is an excellent candidate for a bloody editing Go to Comment

As a reader, I don't have problem with its current length. As a non-fan of sci-fi and your Cosmic Era setting, I still think it a solid article that goes thru in a concise way the purpose of screenery. Go to Comment

This is cool! I really like the plot ideas - having the monastery there works well.

Theoretically yes, anything that could cause a dimensional fatigue event could draw them. It wouldn't keep their attention since physical matter is very dense and very cold to them. Go to Comment

This is interesting. I have a soft spot for bizzarely alien biologies, and this one hits the right notes. Go to Comment

Now this is a strange one :) Having a hard time putting my head around this one.

A consequence of Dimensional Gating - one could expect that terrestrial reactors and nuclear weapon detonations could spawn these on earth, correct? Go to Comment

I like it. Interesting take on the concept of alien life, done in a less seen way. I'd be interested to see something like this translated into actual game stats. (As an aside, those 3-D 'fractal cocoons' really make me think of the Antispiral machines from Gurren Lagann.) Go to Comment

The new feudalism thread contains information that has all already gone into the Cosmic Era setting. The new feudalism is the mentality that leads the world into the Resource Wars at the end of the Petroleum Age, and it's the mentality that the Cosmic Era rejects and projects at the same time. Supercomputers, megacorps, and other think tanks run everything and most places don't make a pretense of pretending to democracy. Democracy and the vote are tarnished by the legacy of the Petroleum Era. Go to Comment

With the law of mass displacement I'm not sure if something this big could do 12 knots? Other than that a great background piece to the Cosmic Era and a fun read.Dove tails nicely with the forum thread on the new feudalism. another Scras gem! 4.5/5 Go to Comment

This was a fun read!! Not sure how to explain why, I guess it's all the somehow fitting names for things, the lingo and nuance. Oh yeah, and the bizarre space lifeforms! Go to Comment
